Rhythmic grammar : the influence of rhythm on grammatical variation and change in English by Julia Schlüter( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This groundbreaking book highlights a phonological preference, the Principle of Rhythmic Alternation, as a factor in grammatical variation and change in English from the early modern period to the present. Through frequently overlooked in earlier research, the phonetically motivated avoidance of adjacent stresses is shown to exert an influence on a wide variety of phenomena in morphology and syntax. Based on in-depth analyses of extensive electronic databases, the book presents 20 exemplary studies from different structural categories. Among them are much-debated as well as novel issues, including the double comparative worser, 'predicative only' a- adjectives, variant past participles, the placement of the degree modifier quite, the order of conjuncts in binomials, the negation of attributive adjectives and sentence adverbs, variable adverbial marking, the use or omission of the infinitive marker, and the a- prefix before - ing forms. The studies provide qualitative and quantitative evidence of the importance of rhythmic alternation in synchronic variation as well as diachronic change, without neglecting interactions with a set of competing functional tendencies

Framing the future : how progressive values can win elections and influence people by Bernie Horn( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Polls consistently show that most Americans are progressives at heart. By margins of at least two to one, we favor affordable healthcare for all, even if it means raising taxes; want federal action to combat global warming; support stricter gun control; don't want Roe vs. Wade overturned; and the list goes on. So why is it so hard for progressive candidates to win elections? Because, says Bernie Horn, most progressives don't know how to explain their ideas in ways that resonate with "persuadables" - the significant slice of the electorate who don't instantly identify as Democrats or Republicans. These are the voters who swing elections. There's been a lot of theoretical discussion about framing lately, but Framing the Future isn't theory - the concepts outlined in this book have been used successfully by progressive candidates across the nation, even in such conservative bastions as Montana, Arizona, and Florida." "Drawing on rigorous polling data and his own experience as a veteran political consultant, Horn explains how persuadable voters think about issues and make political decisions and why, as a result, the usual progressive approaches are practically designed to fail with them. He offers a crash course in the nuts and bolts of framing and shows how to use three bedrock American values - freedom, opportunity, and security - to frame progressive positions in a way that creates a consistent, unified political vision that will appeal to persuadable voters."--book jacket

Methodology for land and housing market analysis by Gareth Jones( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The aim of this book is to bring methods of land-market and land-price analysis to the foreground. It relates substantive research findings for land and urban development and blends these with a focus on research design and methodology. Its findings have relevance beyond the topics of housing and land: it broaches the whole question of how research design and general approach may lead to fundamentally different findings, different priorities, and different policy prescriptions and preoccupations.

Heterodox macroeconomics : Keynes, Marx and globalization by Jonathan P Goldstein( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heterodox Macroeconomics offers a detailed understanding of the foundations of the recent global financial crisis. The chapters, from a selection of leading academics in the field of heterodox macroeconomics, carry out a synthesis of heterodox ideas that place financial instability, macroeconomic crisis, rising global inequality and a grasp of the perverse and pernicious qualities of global and domestic macroeconomic policy making since 1980 into a coherent perspective. It familiarizes the reader with the emerging unified theory of heterodox macroeconomics and its applications. The book is divided into four key sections: I) Heterodox Macroeconomics and the Keynes-Marx synthesis; II) Accumulation, Crisis and Instability; III) The Macrodynamics of the Neoliberal Regime; and IV) Heterodox Macroeconomic Policy. The essays include theoretical, international, historical, and country perspectives on financial fragility and macroeconomic instability
