Topics covered include swearing, slang, dialects, accents and jargon. 202 pages. Light foxing to endpapers and page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams.

OF GRAMMATOLOGY
Derrida, Jacques
ISBN: 0801858305
John Hopkins University Press Baltimore 1997 Corrected Edition
 Paperback Translated by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, a fine copy. Jacques Derrida's revolutionary theories about deconstruction, phenomenology, psychoanalysis, and structuralism, first voiced in the 1960s, forever changed the face of European and American criticism. The ideas in De la grammatologie sparked lively debates in intellectual circles that included students of literature, philosophy, and the humanities, inspiring these students to ask questions of their disciplines that had previously been considered improper. Thirty years later, the immense influence of Derrida's work is still igniting controversy, thanks in part to Gayatri Spivak's translation, which captures the richness and complexity of the original. This corrected edition adds a new index of the critics and philosophers cited in the text and makes one of contemporary criticism's most indispensable works even more accessible and usable. ; 230 x 150mm; xc, 360 pages Fine

By Hook or By Crook : A Journey in Search of English
Crystal, David
ISBN: 9780007255023
Collins, Australia, 2007. 
 Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Very Good/. . 314 pages. Covers have no creasing. Corners of covers are lightly bumped. Spine is uncreased. Remainder mark on page edges. A delightfully discursive, Bill Bryson-esque and personal journey through the groves and the thickets of the English language, by our foremost scholar of the history and structure of the English language. David Crystal has been described (by the Times Higher Education Supplement) as a sort of 'latter day Dr Johnson', a populist linguist who has promoted the study of the English language in an academic and broadcasting career that has so far spanned 40 years and nearly 100 books. Now, in his first book for Harper Press, he has written an engaging travel book of more general appeal. Inspired by W. G. Sebald's 'The Rings of Saturn' and by Bill Bryson's books, he has combined personal reflections, historical allusions and traveller observations to create a mesmerising (and entertaining) narrative account of his encounters with the English language and its speakers throughout the world - from Bangor to Bombay and from Stratford to San Francisco. 'By Hook or by Crook' is an attempt to capture the exploratory, seductive, teasing, tantalising nature of language study. As such, it will appeal to the ever - growing market who like to be entertained as well as instructed. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Language & Linguistics; ISBN/EAN: 9780007255023.

Word of the Day 2: Wordwatching : A Wonderful Look into the World of Words

 Medium Trade Paperback Medium Trade Paperback. Near Fine/. First Edition. 191 pages. Covers have no creasing. Corners of covers are lightly bumped. Spine is uncreased. Pages are clean and unmarked and in excellent condition. The world of words is a fascinating one. Aficionados of the English language pore over dictionaries, thumb through thesauruses and can be sent into a positive swoon with books such as Word of the Day: Wordwatching. It introduces more rare and obscure words to baffle and impress your friends, and explains the strange stories behind many of our common and familiar words. Why are Americans called 'Yankees'? If you buy 'a pig in a poke' what do you end up with? Why is pink associated with being tickled but blue with being murdered? Is 'runcible' a real word? And how did a building style come to name the wattle tree? Filled with such compelling and compulsively interesting information, and the odd 'terse verse', Word of the Day: Wordwatchingis a book for dipping into, to be savoured in small slices, to be quoted until you send your friends nuts. Welcome to a small but wonderful corner of the world of words. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Language & Linguistics; ISBN: 0733317650. ISBN/EAN: 9780733317651. Inventory No: 16060025. Near Fine

It summarises the history of the concept of irony from the first appearance of the word " EIRONEIA" in Plato to the present day. It isolates and discusses five "basic features" of irony: the element of "confluent unawareness", the contrast of reality and appearance, the comic element, the element of detachment, and the aesthetic element. It distinguishes carefully the two main types of irony: verbal (or behavioural) irony and situational irony." -- Front fold over blurb. Size: 12mo (Small Hardcover).

In this book, part diatribe, part cool reflection on the state of Australia's public language, the author takes a blowtorch to the words -- and their users -- who kill joy, imagination and clarity. I personally find it ironic that a one-time political speechwriter now complains about the de-meanification (a nice word which I think I just made up) of the English-language.
