Download or read book Corpus Stylistics as Contextual Prosodic Theory and Subtext written by Bill Louw and published by John Benjamins Publishing Company. This book was released on 2016-05-25 with total page 419 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The volume presents Louw's Contextual Prosodic Theory from its beginnings to its newest applications. It journeys from delexicalisation and relexicalisation into Semantic Prosody and then to the heart of its contextual requirements within collocation and the thinking of J.R. Firth. Once there, it moves much of Firth’s and Malinowski’s thinking into a computational method based upon the ability of language to govern and analyse itself using collocation to plot its scope and limits. With the assistance of analytic philosophy, it parts logic (grammar) from metaphysics (vocabulary) along the lines of a non-computational formula of Bertrand Russell, and so falsifies the major premise of the Vienna Circle using its own central tenet: the Principle of Verification. Having arrived at corpus-derived subtext (the semantic aura of grammar strings, as distinguished from Semantic Prosody), the second half of the book proceeds to verify the theory on Slavic languages. The focus is on the poet Alexander Pushkin, whose authorial intention becomes computationally recoverable. Prose is handled on samples authored by David Lodge, where authorial (in)sincerity (Louw 1993) is viewed on a cline of inspiration and quality of discourse. Other applications in the volume include studies on translation, negotiation, humour, and the reception of CPT.

Being hauled off to an elite boarding school is enough to choke on. Since Bryn is the only crossbreed at the Institute for Excellence, all eyes are on her, but it’s a particular black dragon, Zavien, who catches her attention. Zavien is tired of the Directorate’s rules. Segregated clans, being told who to love, and close-minded leaders make freedom of choice almost impossible. The new girl with the striped hair is a breath of fresh air, and with Bryn’s help, they might be able to change the rules. At the Institute, old grudges, new crushes, and death threats are all part of a normal day for Bryn. She'll need to learn to control her dragon powers if she wants to make it through her first year at school.

Download or read book Who Goes There written by Rebecca Price Janney and published by Moody Publishers. This book was released on 2009-02-01 with total page 189 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Princess Diana, John Ritter, Saddam Hussein, Mother Teresa, Chris Farley… Does it seem reasonable to guess where each of these people ended up after they died? While it is comforting to suppose that everyone who’s “good” goes to a better place when they die, and everyone who’s “bad” doesn’t, on what is that hope based? To adequately understand how these thoughts influence us today, Rebecca Price Janney goes back to the colonization and founding of the United States. From the Great Awakening to the American Revolution, through the tumultuous 19th century, and all the way past two world wars and a technological revolution, Who Goes There? pieces together a thoughtful narrative of American beliefs about the afterlife.

Download or read book Eleanor Morgan Box Set Books 1 4 written by Amy Cissell and published by Amy Cissell. This book was released on 2021-11-08 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This digital box set includes the first four books in the Eleanor Morgan series, more than 1,200 pages of contemporary fantasy, Fae, adventure, magic, and dragons! Eleanor Morgan is faced with an impossible choice: destroy the world of her birth or the world she calls home? THE WORLDBREAKER: Eleanor Morgan lived her first thirty-four years as a happily mundane human in the Pacific Northwest. Of course, it wouldn’t be much of a story if it stayed that way. After she nearly ends up as a vampire’s appetizer, Eleanor finally learns the truth. She was sent from the Fae Plane as a child so she could one day trigger the fairy magic and open the eight gates between Earth and the Fae Plane. THE GUIDE: Finnegan Byrne, half-Fae and a servant of the Light Throne, met Eleanor in a bar six years ago and has been biding his time ever since. Although he longs for more, his true mission is to reveal the truth and be her guide when the magic breaks. THE WEREWOLF: Damaged, alone, and powerful, Isaac Walker has no place in the local pack, and his Alpha gives him a mission to get him out of town. He’s supposed to accompany Eleanor on her quest to open the gates between the Fae Realm and Earth—and take her out if she proves too big a threat. What wasn’t part of his brief was falling in love. THE WITCH: Every magic wielder needs a teacher, and Eleanor finds hers in Florence White Elk. Florence joins the team to train Eleanor and help protect humanity from the effects of the tech-destroying magic that comes with each gate opening, but her help comes with a price. Eleanor most help rescue Florence’s twin sister who was kidnapped by the Fae when she was a child. THE VAMPIRE: Deliciously sexy Raj Allred leads the PNW vampires, but what he wants almost more than anything is to take control of the world-breaker. Instead of taking her prisoner and stopping the gates from opening, Raj finds himself tied to her by friendship, respect, and desire. Everyone has secrets, and no one is what they seem… Will Eleanor’s trust in her companions be rewarded, or will it be what destroys it all? "This [The Cardinal Gate] is a whole story with a strong female protagonist and superior writing! Brilliant and entertaining." — Rabia Tanveer, Readers’ Favorites, 5-star review "The Waning Moon is a can't-miss fantasy adventure with humor, snark, and fun banter. A must-read!" — Liz Konkel, Readers’ Favorite, 5-star review “This [The Ruby Blade] is an epic fantasy and fans of magic and mayhem will lap it up, but the by-play and the strong, positive characters, especially the women, are so refreshing to read. This is one of those books that is impossible to put down as one exciting scene just literally drags you into the next, but for readers with a thirst for witty, sassy, dialogue, that's all here too.” — Grant Leishman, Readers' Favorite, 5-star review “This book [The Broken World] was amazing! I so enjoy the characters and their quirks. I am very much looking forward to the next installment in this wonderfully unique series. I can't wait to see what happens next! Amy Cissell has now been added to my must-read authors list.” — 5-star Amazon Review Keywords: contemporary fantasy, box set contemporary fantasy, vampire romance, adult shifter romance, fantasy complete series, vampire books, shifter books, action adventure fantasy, dragon books, portal fantasy, Fae faery fantasy, supernatural series, tough heroine books, magical apocalypse books, witch books, Fae books, humorous fantasy, urban fantasy
