This dictionary provides a valency description of English verbs, nouns and adjectives. Each entry contains a comprehensive list of the complementation patterns identified on the basis of the largest corpus of English available at the present time. All examples are taken directly from the COBUILD/Birmingham corpus. The valency description comprises statements about the quantitative valency of the lexical units established, an inventory of their obligatory, contextually optional and purely optional complements as well as systematic information on the semantic and collocational properties of the complements. An outline of the model of valency theory used in this dictionary is provided in the introduction.

American English Primary Colors is a new 4-level course for young learners. It is packed with fun activities which ensure that children use English in a purposeful way. Right from the start, they are fully involved in thinking for themselves, doing things for themselves and making things themselves, all of which is underpinned by a strong structural syllabus. The Student's Books have engaging stories, puzzles, games, songs and chants, and craft activities. The course includes Activity Books, Teacher's Books, Class Audio CDs, Songs/Songs and Stories CDs, and Vocabulary Cards. The course encourages children to think about the world around them and, at the higher levels, to make connections with other areas of the curriculum. This approach makes language learning meaningful and memorable.

This book is a detailed study of French-English linguistic borrowing in Prince Edward Island, Canada which argues for the centrality of lexical innovation to grammatical change. Chapters 14 present the theoretical and methodological perspectives adopted along with the sociolinguistic history of Acadian French. Chapter 5 outlines the basic features of Acadian French morphosyntax. Chapter 6 provides an overview of the linguistic consequences of language contact in Prince Edward Island. Chapters 79 consider three particular cases of grammatical borrowing: the borrowing of the English adverb back and the semantic and syntactic reanalysis it has undergone, the borrowing of a wide range of English prepositions, resulting in dramatic changes in the syntactic behaviour of French prepositions, and the borrowing of English wh-ever words, resulting in the emergence of a new type of free relative. Chapter 10 argues for a theory of grammar contact by which contact-induced grammatical change is mediated by the lexicon.
