Linguistic attractors : the cognitive dynamics of language acquisition and change by D. L Cooper( Book )

14 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The interdisciplinary linguistic attractor model portrays language processing as linked sequences of fractal sets, and examines the changing dynamics of such sets for individuals as well as the speech community they comprise.

Creating the nation : identity and aesthetics in early nineteenth-century Russia and Bohemia by David L Cooper( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the first three decades of the 19th century, both Czech and Russian literatuers experienced a paradigm shift in conceptions of literary values--from a classicist conception based on the values represented by works of Greek and Roman antiquity to a broadly romantic conception in which literary value is grounded in the particularities of the modern nation as an individual subject with its own historical and geographical limits. Cooper's ambitious work produces a clear picture of how vital a role this shift played in driving the development of national identity and also how critical the period is to understanding the major trends and concerns of Russian and Czech literatures throughout the 19th century. Beginning at the ground level of vocabulary, Cooper shows how new terms appeared and old ones transformed in meaning as issues of identity gained prominence in the national discourse
