Hyperproof CSLI Lecture Notes No. 42

Center for the Study of Language and Inf, Stanford, California, 1994. Edition Unstated
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. Edition Unstated. Hyperproof is a system for learning the principles of analytical reasoning and proof construction, consisting of a text and software program on a 3.5 inch diskette. Unlike traditional treatments of first-order logic, Hyperproof combines graphical and sentential information, presenting a set of logical rules for integrating these different forms of information. This strategy allows students to focus on the information content of proofs, rather than the syntactic structure of sentences. Using Hyperproof the student learns to construct proofs of both consequence and nonconsequence using an intuitive proof system that extends the standard set of sentential rules to incorporate information represented graphically. Hyperproof is compatible with various natural-deduction-style proof systems, including the system used in the authors' Language of First-Order Logic. the book may have been read but shows no damage, and the diskette is still sealed at the rear of the book Size: 4to 9¾" - 12" tall. 254 pages.

Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation
Lynne Truss,
ISBN: 1861976771
Profile Books, Australia, 2005. 
 Softcover Softcover. Near Fine Condition/. . A witty, entertaining, impassioned guide to perfect punctuation, for everyone who cares about precise writing. Not a primer but a 'zero tolerance' manual for direct action. A panda walked into a cafe. He ordered a sandwich, ate it, then pulled out a gun and shot the waiter. 'Why?' groaned the injured man. The panda shrugged, tossed him a badly punctuated wildlife manual and walked out. And sure enough, when the waiter consulted the book, he found an explanation. 'Panda,' ran the entry for his assailant. 'Large black and white mammal native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.' We see signs in shops every day for "Banana's" and even "Gateaux's". Competition rules remind us: "The judges decision is final." Now, many punctuation guides already exist explaining the principles of the apostrophe; the comma; the semi-colon. These books do their job but somehow punctuation abuse does not diminish. Why? Because people who can't punctuate don't read those books! Of course they don't! They laugh at books like those! Eats, Shoots and Leaves adopts a more militant approach and attempts to recruit an army of punctuation vigilantes: send letters back with the punctuation corrected. Do not accept sloppy emails. Climb ladders at dead of night with a pot of paint to remove the redundant apostrophe in "Video's sold here" 209 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Mousewives & Muffintops - Buzz Words & Euphemisms - What They Really Mean
S. J. Hartland,
ISBN: 9781743405123
Lake Press Pty Ltd, Australia, 2009. 
 Hardcover (Printed Boards) Hardcover (Printed Boards). Very Good Condition/Very Good. . This entertaining guide decodes the infuriating buzzwords and jargon that pepper life today. It exposes corporate doublespeak, political spin, journalistic euphemisms and all those trendy phrases that are intended to baffle and mystify. It also includes a good selection of witty one-liners, insults and put-downs so you will never be lost for words again. Do you know what a mousewife is? No, it's not a houseproud rodent but a woman who spends all her time on the computer instead of getting on with those tedious chores. The muffintop is sadly more familiar nowadays and that unlovely roll of fat can be seen bulging over tight trousers in any shopping centre around the country. These are two of the sharp and funny new words that have been coined to sum up our changing society. Not all the invented words and phrases are quite so benign, however, as politicians, corporations and spin-doctors use obscure language to hide the truth. Join us in a wry ramble through the comical and sometimes ridiculous 'lace curtains' of the English language where words are used to conceal meaning. 160 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Cheerio Tom, Dick and Harry : Despatches from the Hospice of Fading Words
Ruth Wajnryb,
ISBN: 9781741149937
Allen & Unwin, Australia, 2007. 
 Softcover Softcover. Good Condition/. . Ruth Wajnryb embarks on a voyage of discovery among the words that once peppered the language of baby boomers and their parents to discover why they seem to be slipping from common use. Why is it that people don't say cheerio' any more, and, come to think of it, why did they in the first place? Do people still tinker with jalopies? And whatever happened to Tom, Dick and Harry, not to mention all those other folk who provided us with such excellent conversational shorthand? Filled with entertaining vignettes and intriguing etymology, Ruth has created an imaginary hospice that offers a caring refuge for pre-loved words that are in imminent danger of being dismissed as obs' (for obsolete') or arch' (for archaic') in English dictionaries. Written with Ruth Wajnryb's characteristic intelligence, sly wit and lan, Cheerio Tom, Dick and Harry examines the way in which our everyday language reflects and gives expression to the enormous changes that have taken place in our physical and social landscape over the last fifty years or so. 265 pages.

Eye for an Eye
William Ian Miller,
ISBN: 0521856809
Cambridge University Press, USA, 2005. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. First Edition. This book is a historical and philosophical meditation on paying back and buying back, that is, it is about retaliation and redemption. It takes the law of the talion - eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth - seriously. In its biblical formulation that law states the value of my eye in terms of your eye, the value of your teeth in terms of my teeth. Eyes and teeth become units of valuation. But the talion doesn't stop there. It seems to demand that eyes, teeth, and lives are also to provide the means of payment. Bodies and body parts, it seems, have a just claim to being not just money, but the first and precisest of money substances. In its highly original way, the book offers a theory of justice, not an airy theory though. It is about getting even in a toughminded, unsentimental, but respectful way. And finds that much of what we take to be justice, honor, and respect for persons requires, at its core, measuring and measuring up. 266 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

Sometimes it's just a tatty sheet of typed A4 but since 1986 The Economist has developed its stylish Style Guide, through six editions, into a full length reference book. Because English is such a vast and continuously evolving language--its vocabulary is double that of French and more than three times larger than German--it is open to multifarious use and all the old arguments about correctness or lack of it. The Economist unequivocally sets out its version of what is acceptable and why, usually conforming to Fowler's Modern English Usage and other good guides to getting it right.

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

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.

It is full of interesting information about why certain preferences are coming into use and, without being prescriptive, will give users all the information they need to make an appropriate choice. With more than 2,500 alphabetical entries and a range of diagrams, this book will make life easier for anyone who deals with written language. Quantity Available: 1.

Also included are a series of language tests so that readers can brush up on their newfound knowledge on their way to becoming a true Cockney Geezer.

Ever wanted to ameliorate your atavistic lexicon, engage in a little intellectual badinage or been discombobulated by tricky diction? 500 Words You Should Know has you covered. This book will inspire the reader to use uncommon words in their correct context, utilize the English language to its full potential, and test themselves on the words they think they already know. This is a book for the appreciator of correct usage, and contains words you thought you knew (decimate, caveat, nemesis), words you should know (euphemism, diatribe, tautology), and just a few that you might want to know (peripatetic, shibboleth, callipygian). Arranged thematically, each word is dissected, with a brief explanation of etymology, historical and modern usage, allowing you to fully understand and effectively employ the word in its proper context. For those interested in everything this eclectic language has to offer, who wish to celebrate its majesty and depth, this veracious cornucopia of knowledge will have you confabulating with the literary cognoscenti in no time. 192 pages.

 Softcover Softcover. Very Good/. Illustrator: Petty. Reprint. introduction by author, acknowledgements, bibliography. Illustrated paperback binding with pink, black and white coloured titles to the front panel and black and white coloured titles to the back strip. Author photograph to the verso of the front panel. 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.
