Col­lo­ca­tions as a lan­guage resource: a func­tion­al and cog­ni­tive study in Eng­lish phrase­ol­o­gy
BuchcoverAre col­lo­ca­tions prob­lems or solu­tions to prob­lems? If you take the per­spec­tive of the for­eign learn­er, as in tra­di­tion­al phrase­ol­o­gy, they are cer­tain­ly chal­leng­ing, and they have there­fore been cat­e­go­rized as arbi­trary, or even defec­tive, devi­a­tions from an assumed norm of full com­po­si­tion­al­i­ty. This is a para­dox because their ubiq­ui­ty in lan­guage and their impor­tance for lan­guage pro­fi­cien­cy are undis­put­ed. The book pro­vides a crit­i­cal review of the tra­di­tion­al phrase­o­log­i­cal approach to col­lo­ca­tions with its clas­si­cal cat­e­gories and its roots in struc­tur­al and gen­er­a­tive lin­guis­tics as well as tra­di­tion­al Russ­ian phrase­ol­o­gy. Instead, it pro­pos­es a the­o­ry of col­lo­ca­tions as an inde­pen­dent func­tion­al domain, no longer char­ac­ter­ized as “odd com­ings-togeth­er of words” that are nei­ther ful­ly com­po­si­tion­al nor ful­ly idiomat­ic. It fills a research gap and should appeal to phrase­ol­o­gists and cog­ni­tive lin­guists as well as psy­cholin­guists, neu­rolin­guists, cor­pus lin­guists, PhD-stu­dents and oth­er advanced stu­dents of lin­guis­tics who are inter­est­ed in explor­ing col­lo­ca­tions as a lan­guage resource and may be inter­est­ed in con­tribut­ing to it.

Lit­er­a­ture and Lit­er­ary Stud­ies in the Twen­ty-First Cen­tu­ry: Cul­tur­al Con­cerns – Con­cepts – Case Stud­ies
BuchcoverIn the 21st cen­tu­ry, the dis­ci­pline of lit­er­ary stud­ies is faced with a con­sid­er­able num­ber of new chal­lenges and cul­tur­al con­cerns which demand prob­lem-solv­ing strate­gies dif­fer­ent from those envis­aged by estab­lished approach­es and the­o­ries. The present vol­ume explores inno­v­a­tive path­ways with regard to the ques­tion of how lit­er­ary stud­ies can be recon­cep­tu­alised and engage with the key chal­lenges of our time – from dig­i­tal­i­sa­tion, cli­mate change, ter­ror­ism, ani­mal rights and urban­i­sa­tion to fake news, the finan­cial cri­sis, glob­al migra­tion flows, resur­gent nation­alisms, changes in labour, and many more. The volume’s 24 con­tri­bu­tions are ded­i­cat­ed to three main tasks: first­ly, to rethink­ing lit­er­ary stud­ies by map­ping out new mod­els and approach­es; sec­ond­ly, to exam­in­ing new forms and sto­ry­telling prac­tices in con­tem­po­rary lit­er­a­ture; third­ly, to explor­ing literature’s engage­ment with cur­rent cul­tur­al con­cerns in British, US-Amer­i­can and Anglo­phone con­texts.
