About this Item: Orient BlackSwan, 2016. Soft cover. Condition: New. 1st Edition. Contents: Introduction. 1. Indefinite reference framing. 2. The acquisition and use of the past tense understanding selective marking. 3. The felicitous use of then / after that . 4. On the structure of enumeration. 5. The encapsulating sentence and text-building. 6. Variable temporal passage in storytelling. 7. Narrative in support of an opening end-state statement. 8. Information design and language learning. 9. Message under coding and language learning. The aspects of written discourse addressed in this collection of nine papers are represented in terms of the defining informational constraints on their standard use, and the associated pragma-discoursal impact on the message. Each of the first seven papers individually addresses a core feature of written discourse of challenge to the high-intermediate English as a Foreign Language learner, by examining how s/he tackles the very particular information-packaging directives that govern it. These seven papers cover a range of such features, from the micro- to the macro-level, including, reference framing, the marking of time and temporal passage, key intersentential relations and discoursal developments, and the signaling of genre. The eighth paper attempts a more general assessment of the information-design challenge that these facets of composing collectively constitute, and the last paper identifies, and accounts for, a common learning strategy that the typical foreign language context gives rise to. As a whole, the collection is a comprehensive but also deeply probing, first-of-its-kind pragma-discoursal study of how second-language writing is learned in a foreign language environment.

About this Item: Palgrave Macmillan, 2016. Hardcover. Condition: Good. 1st Edition. Hardcover, xiii + 267 pages, NOT ex-library. Minor traces of erased pencil in side margins of two pages (a short line and an 'x'). Else interior is clean and bright throughout, free of inscriptions and stamps. A small indentation / crease to the upper outer corner of a portion of leaves. Firm secure binding. Boards show some tiny creases to edges, a small indentation to the rear upper edge. Issued without a dust jacket. -- This book is to date the first monograph-length study of the popular American political TV series House of Cards. It proposes an encompassing analysis of the first three seasons from the unusual angles of discourse and dialogue. The study of the stylistic idiosyncrasies of the ruthless main protagonist, Frank Underwood, is completed by a pragmatic and cognitive approach exposing the main characters manipulative strategies to win over the other. Taking into account the socio-cultural context and the specificities of the TV medium, the volume focuses on the workings of interaction as well as the impact of the direct address to the viewer. The book critically uses the latest theories in pragmatics and stylistics in its attempt at providing a pragma-rhetorical theory of manipulation. -- Contents: 1: Power &?
