Phrasal Verbs Through The Lens Of Cognitive Linguistics

Phrasal Verbs Through The Lens Of Cognitive Linguistics

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This book has three main aims:
  1. To determine the usefulness of English phrasal verbs for L2 learners based on their frequency of occurrence;
  2. To offer a comparative exploration of the most common phrasal verbs between spoken American and British English across the subgenre of television crime dramas, and
  3. To show the crucial role that adverbial particles play in decoding the meaning of phrasal verbs.

The aim is to share their research experience with us, as well as to provide tips and ideas that may help Iulma members in the design and application process of new research projects.

The focus will be on three main aspects:

  • Theoretical: how digital communication is leading towards a regenreing of digital genres to disseminate scientific knowledge
  • Methodological: how they have applied different tools, with special attention to NVIVO, when analysing their corpus.
  • Tranfer: how the Aragon autonomy is benefiting from the results and implications of the research project.

Metaphor in Economics and Specialised Discourse

Metaphor in Economics and Specialised Discourse

Description

This book approaches various uses of metaphor in specialised discourses, covering such varied fields as business and economics, law, politics and diplomacy, fashion, and maritime discourse, among others. The studies presented in the book adopt different research frameworks, ranging from pragmatics to conceptual metaphor theory, among others.

The book is divided into three Sections that analyse major specialised discourses where metaphor is frequently found and the role that metaphor plays in these discourses. The first Section approaches the discourse of Business and Economics from different perspectives. The second Section addresses the use of metaphor in politics, diplomacy and law. Finally, Section three covers the use of metaphors in other specialised discourses such as marine, fashion, gender or health.

Aimed primarily at scholars and graduate students of specialised and professional discourse, “Metaphor in Economics and Specialised Discourse” will also interest researchers and professionals interested in the use of specialised language.

Smartphone Communication. Interactions in the App Ecosystem

ADDA Volume

Description

This book offers a unique model for understanding the cognitive underpinnings, interactions and discursive effects of our evolving use of smartphones in everyday app-mediated communication, from text messages and GIFs to images, video and social media apps.

Adopting a cyberpragmatics framework, grounded in cognitive pragmatics and relevance theory, it gives attention to how both the particular interfaces of different apps and users’ personal attributes influence the contexts and uses of smartphone communication. The communication of emotions – in addition to primarily linguistic content – is foregrounded as an essential element of the kinds of ever-present paralinguistic and phatic communication that characterises our exchange of memes, GIFs, “likes,” and image- and video-based content. Insights from related disciplines such as media studies and sociology are incorporated as the author unpacks the timeliest questions of our digitally mediated age.

Aimed primarily at scholars and graduate students of communication, linguistics, pragmatics, media studies, and sociology of mass media, Smartphone Communication traffics in topics that will likewise engage upper-level undergraduate students.

Part 1: Pragmatics, Cyberpragmatics and Smartphones

Approaches to Internet Pragmatics. Theory and Practice

ADDA Volume

Description

Internet-mediated communication is pervasive nowadays, in an age in which many people shy away from physical settings and often rely, instead, on social media and messaging apps for their everyday communicative needs. Since pragmatics deals with communication in context and how more gets communicated than is said (or typed), applications of this linguistic perspective to internet communication, under the umbrella label of internet pragmatics, are not only welcome, but necessary.

The volume covers straightforward applications of pragmatic phenomena to internet interactions, as happens with speech acts and contextualization, and internet-specific kinds of communication such as the one taking place on WhatsApp, WeChat and Twitter. This collection also addresses the role of emoticons and emoji in typed-text dialogues and the importance of “physical place” in internet interactions (exhibiting an interplay of online-offline environments), as is the case in the role of place in locative media and in broader place-related communication, as in migration.
