The Mps Language Workbench from the Author: Fabien Campagne. The MPS Language Workbench, Volume II (first edition). The second volume of the series explains how to customize the JetBrains Meta-Programming System (MPS) platform to better integrate it with the needs of your languages. Volume II continues where Volume I ended and discusses more advanced features of the MPS platform. This book includes a detailed example to illustrate the design and implementation of a custom web aspect. This detailed example illustrates how the advanced features of the MPS platform make it possible to design languages suitable to generate complete applications. The Meta-Programming System (MPS) is a new kind of tool called a Language Workbench that makes it easier and more fun to write programs. With traditional programming, it is common to choose one programming language to solve a problem and being limited by this choice. When working with MPS you can use and combine different languages to solve a problem. You can also create simple languages (e.g., Domain Specific Languages) or extend existing ones when the languages available do not exactly meet the evolving needs of the problem at hand. The languages that you create with MPS will integrate nicely with languages developed by others. MPS is open-source and can be obtained from http://jetbrains.com/mps (or http://github.com/JetBrains/MPS/).

The Motivated Sign from the Author: Olga Fischer. This volume, a sequel to Form Miming Meaning (1999), offers a selection of papers given at the second international symposium on iconicity (Amsterdam 1999). In the light of semiotic, linguistic and literary theory the studies gathered here investigate how iconicity works on all levels of language, in literary texts and other forms of verbal discourse. They investigate, among other subjects, the semiotic foundations of iconicity, the role played by iconicity in language evolution and in the way words are positioned syntactically. Special consideration is given to the iconic nature of metaphor and the 'mise en abyme', to iconically motivated punctuation and other typographic matters such as the manipulation of colour, fonts and spacing in advertising and in poetry. Other studies show how iconicity influences Shakespeare's rhetoric, the structural design of Margaret Atwood's writings and the changing fashions in fictional landscape description. Thus, these analyses of 'the motivated sign' represent yet another strong challenge to “Saussure's dogma of arbitrariness” (Jakobson).

Language Typology And Syntactic Description Volume 2 Complex Constructions from the Author: Timothy Shopen. The three volumes of Language Typology and Syntactic Description offer a unique survey of syntactic and morphological structure in the languages of the world. Topics covered include parts of speech; passives; complementation; relative clauses; adverbial clauses; inflectional morphology; tense, aspect and mood; and deixis. The major ways these notions are realized in the languages of the world are explored, and the contributors provide brief sketches of relevant aspects of representative languages. Each volume is written in an accessible style with new concepts explained and exemplified as they are introduced. Although each volume can be read independently, together they provide a major work of reference that will serve as a manual for field workers and anyone interested in cross-linguistic generalizations.
