Miriam Urgelles-Coll’s ‘The Syntax and Semantics of Discourse Markers’

I am very pleased to have received a copy of Miriam Urgelles-Coll’s new monograph The Syntax and Semantics of Discourse Markers, which has just been published in the series Continuum Studies in Theoretical Linguistics, of which I am general editor. This is the second book to be published in the series, following Michael Fortescue’s A Neural Network Model of Lexical Organisation. Gerard O’Grady’s Grammar of Spoken English Discourse is due to be published later this year.

Continuum Studies in Theoretical Linguistics

cstl-flyerI am very pleased recently to have signed up as Series Editor of Continuum Studies in Theoretical Linguistics.

This new series publishes work in the forefront of present-day developments in the field. The series is open to studies from all branches of theoretical linguistics and to the full range of theoretical frameworks. Titles in the series present original research that makes a new and significant contribution and are aimed primarily at scholars in the field, but are clear and accessible, making them useful also to students, to new researchers and to scholars in related disciplines.

We are now accepting proposals for the series for research monographs or edited collections. Guidelines for preparing proposals can be found at the Continuum website.

The first title in the series, Deviational Syntactic Structures by Hans Gotzsche, is due to be published in February 2010.
