The Meaning of Tingo and Other Extraordinary Words from Around the World
Adam Jacot De Boinod
Penguin  2009 
 Hardcover 205 crisp pp & less than 500g to post. Did you know that people in Indonesia have a word that means 'to take off your clothes in order to dance'? Or how many words the Albanians have for eyebrows and moustaches? Or that the Dutch word for skimming stones is plimpplamppletteren? Drawing on the collective wisdom of over 154 languages, this intriguing book is arranged by theme so you can compare attitudes all over the world to such subjects as food, the human body and the battle of the sexes. Here you can find not only those words for which there is no direct counterpart in English (such as the Japanese age-otori which means looking less attractive after a haircut), but also a frank discussion of exactly how many 'Eskimo' terms there are for snow, and a vast array of information exploring the wonderful and often downright strange world of words. Oh, and tingo means 'to take all the objects one desires from the house of a friend, one at a time, by asking to borrow them'.  Excellent/Excellent

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.

Theme and Space: Text-linguistic Studies in Russian and Polish Drama - With an Outline of Text-linguistics (studies in Slavic literature and poetics volume XXVII)

ISBN: 9051839995
Rodopi, Amsterdam, 1996. First Edition
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. First Edition. 550 g; XII, 296 pages, last two pages blank, includes references (bibliography), index. The text is illustrated with black-and-white photography, line drawings, and flowcharts. In this book an attempt is made at developing linguistic model for the semiotics of culture, and to apply this to the analysis of a number of Russian and Polish dramatic texts, mostly from the 19th century. Special chapters are devoted to the performance of drama, and to some urgent issues concerning the structure of semiotics base. The last and most lengthy chapter presents an outline of so-called text linguistics, here conceived as a variety of case Grammar, duely revised for application to the analysis of drama and its non-verbal context. The book addresses itself to readers familiar with Slavic languages and interested in the relation between language and literary themes, and the place of drama in culture.

Vintage Books, Sydney, 2015. First Edition
 Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Very Good Condition/. First Edition. First Impression . Size: 8vo Octavo (standard book size). 439 pages. Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. No foxing in this copy. Edges browned slightly. This book is available and ready to be shipped from our local warehouse. Postage quoted is for a standard format octavo book. Final charges may vary depending on size and weight.. Don Watson - with his trademark wit and wisdom - says enough already! The English language is complex and evolving, and can win minds, hearts and nations. Why don't we try using it? What is cluster deployment , and how can you be sure to engage multiple stakeholders through your strategic delivery channel ? What s the difference between backcasting and backfilling and could it ever matter? The language of business and work grows ever more depleted, barren and senseless. Politicians hide in thickets of endless repeated messages, platitudes and cliches, or behind such shameless Newspeak as operational matters . The thing is viral- leaping from corporate windows of opportunity, it has taken hold in universities and schools, the public service, hospitals, local councils, fire brigades, the weather bureau. (What is the difference between rain and a rain event?) Don Watson returns to the follies he described in Death Sentence and Weasel Words. With his trademark management-jargon mockery, he will make you cringe and laugh and possibly die of shame. But above all he will ask you to resist- to fight in the fields and in the streets and in the office. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Death Sentence: The Decay of Public Language
Watson, Don,
ISBN: 9781740512060
Knopf, Sydney, 2003. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. First Edition. Fifth impression or later. Size: 8vo Octavo (standard book size). 198 pages. Text body is clean, and free from previous owner annotation, underlining and highlighting. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. No foxing in this copy. Dust Jacket is not price clipped and in excellent condition. Edges browned slightly. This book is available and will be shipped within two business days. All items are tracked and details are available on request. . Almost sixty years ago, George Orwell described the decay of language and why this threatened democratic society. But compared to what we now endure, the public language of Orwell's day brimmed with life and truth. Today's corporations, government departments, news media, and, perhaps most dangerously, politicians - speak to each other and to us in cliched, impenetrable, lifeless sludge. Don Watson can bear it no longer. In Death Sentence, part diatribe, part cool reflection on the state of Australia's public language, he takes a blowtorch to the words - and their users - who kill joy, imagination and clarity. Scathing, funny and brilliant, Death Sentence is a small book of profound weight - and timeliness. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

This book is available and will be shipped within two business days. All items are tracked and details are available on request. . Coined in the spontaneity of the everyday spoken act, slang exists as a testament to human nature's inventive and subversive instinct. This history of English slang documents our verbal predilections for the racier side of life, at the expense of the more quotidian, let alone respectable - it is no coincidence that the longest chapters in this book concern sex, money, drink and drugs. Slang Down the Ages tackles its subject theme by theme, taking standard English words and phrases and tracing the ingenuity of their slang equivalents over time, in each case approximating 'earliest use'. Be amused by the playfulness of our linguistic heritage, intrigued by our need for encrypted signs and appalled by some of the more bold-faced puns, as Jonathon Green charts five centuries of our developing and ever-diversifying vocabulary.

Au Revoir to All That : The Rise and Fall of French Cuisine
Steinberger, Michael,
ISBN: 9780747591825
Bloomsbury Publishing PLC,  2009. 1st Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Fine/Fine. 1st Edition. 1st Printing. 243 pages. This book is in fine condition. It has no tears to the pages and no pages are missing from the book. The spine of the book is in strong condition and the dust jacket is generally unmarked. It has signs of previous use but overall is in really nice, tight condition. Items are shipped same day or next business day and are shipped directly from our Australian address. SYNOPSIS: France is in a rut, and so is French cuisine. Twenty-five years ago it was hard to have a bad meal in France; now, in some cities and towns, it is a challenge to find even a decent baguette. For the first time in the annals of modern cuisine, the most influential chefs and the most talked-about restaurants are not French. Large segments of the French wine industry are in crisis, cherished artisanal cheeses are threatened with extinction, and bistros and brasseries are disappearing at an alarming rate. But business is brisk at some establishments: astonishingly, France has become the second most-profitable market in the world for McDonald's. How did this happen, and what is being done to reverse France's slide? Michael Steinberger argues that the problem of French cuisine is symptomatic of the broader malaise afflicting France, and his brilliantly reported narrative is set in the context of the political, economic and social crisis that besets the nation. In an enviable trip through the traditional pleasures of France, Steinberger talks to top chefs-Ducasse, Gagnaire, Bocuse-winemakers, farmers, bakers and other artisans. He marches down a Paris boulevard with Jose Bove, interviews the head of McDonald's Europe and breaks bread with the editorial director of the powerful and secretive Michelin Guide. He spends hours with some of France's brightest young chefs, who are battling to reinvigorate the country's rich culinary heritage. Throughout, Steinberger remains an unabashed and steadfast Francophile, and his own sharp and funny reflections bring empathy to this striking portrait of a cuisine and a country in transition.
