Phonosymbolism, or sound symbolism (Lautsymbolik), is a vital ingredient of language growth. Many serious scholars, however, have regarded it with embarrassment or indifference. A cautious reintroduction of phonosymbolism as a factor responsible for changes undergone, in varying degrees, by most languages would now seem to be in order. The present volume brings together a number of recent articles on this subject, focusing mostly on problems from Romance languages, especially Spanish; but English also figures prominently.

All the languages of the world feature some type of sound symbolism. This study deals with a specific type of expressive language, ideophones, the occurrence of which is a really determined. It aims at a prototype definition of ideophones in both the Atlantic creole languages and their African substrate languages. It is argued that the correspondences between African and creole ideophones are both functional and substantial. By consequence, the suggested etymologies may contribute to the debate on creole genesis.

Its a social statement; exposing the cultural bondage to traditions over common sense, logic and 21st-century-order. The obvious ineffectiveness of government, the lackadaisical enforcements of rules and laws, the selfishness of the individual superseding social orders. The beyond-time mentality over the salvages of most modern innovations - all in total contrast to the other. The daily lifes effect by traditional thinking; yet the attempt to link to the 21st century, in absurd attempts. In my conclusion Id say that Taiwan is still clearly a 3rd-world-country, however willing to pirate for all the modern gadgets, yet unable/willing to surrender outdated traditions and customs. And, in most, not willing to socially unite to and as one (society). Individualism is (still) way too prevalent to announce Taiwan a country and a society.

Distinguished linguistics scholar Anatoly Liberman set out the frame for this volume in An Analytic Dictionary of English Etymology. Here, Liberman's landmark scholarship lay the groundwork for his forthcoming multivolume analytic dictionary of the English language. A Bibliography of English Etymology is a broadly conceptualized reference tool that provides source materials for etymological research. For each word's etymology, there is a bibliographic entry that lists the word origin's primary sources, specifically, where it was first found in use. Featuring the history of more than 13,000 English words, their cognates, and their foreign antonyms, this is a full-fledged compendium of resources indispensable to any scholar of word origins.

The Iconicity in Language and Literature series has long been dedicated to the recognition and understanding of the pervasiveness of iconicity in language in its many forms and functions. The present volume, divided into four sections, brings together and unifies different perspectives on iconicity. Chapters in the first section (Iconicity in language) provide linguistic analyses of systems of iconic forms in different languages, across both space (areally) and time (diachronically). The second section (Iconicity in literature) is concerned with stylistic analyses of iconicity in literature, in both poetry and prose and across a range of devices and genres. The third section (Iconicity in visual media) highlights the use and effects of iconicity in pictorial, photographic and cinematic media. The final section (Iconicity in semiotic analysis) offers a theoretical perspective, targeting an operationalisation of iconicity with respect to the relationship between types and subtypes of Peircean signs.
