New books on linguistics from Oxford University PressSubject: Arts and humanities18/02/21
The UOC Library has around sixty new e-books on the structure, use and evolution of language from an interdisciplinary perspective.
The new collection of e-books, Oxford Handbooks Online - Linguistics, is an academic reference source containing the most up-to-date reviews of the research being carried out in the field. The collection's authors are internationally recognized experts in their disciplines and all content is vetted for quality.
The books in the collection cover a wide range of subjects and allow readers to grasp the state of the art, the main advances being made and the approaches used to study linguistics' different facets. Some of the topics include:
- The structure of language with respect to phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics and discourse.
- The use of language from the viewpoint of sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics or language acquisition.
- The study of language from diverse and interdisciplinary fields such as anthropology, psychology, philosophy, computational science, sociology, biology or acoustics.
Professor Vàzquez recommended three volumes in particular:
- The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Linguistics
- The Oxford Handbook of Lexicography
- The Oxford Handbook of Computational Linguistics
