This Collection, composed altogether of 19 reissued titles in three sub-sets from The Athlone Press, Cassell and Frances Pinter, offers a distinguished selection of titles that showcase the breadth of linguistics, spanning from language learning and the classic questions of linguistics to the challenges of teaching artificial intelligence to think and speak. This sub-set explores the idea that we are what we say - and how that `what' might change in different languages and times. These six titles offer translations, analyses and understanding of other languages and the differences in cultures that is expressed through and based upon language. All titles can be acquired either individually or as set. The set Language Studies includes: Faux Amis and Key Words by Philip Thody and Howard Evans Scoor-oot by James A.C. Stevenson with Iseabail Macleod Nihongo: In Defence of Japanese by Roy Andrew Miller African Acronyms and Abbreviations by David E Hall The Communicative Syllabus: A Systemic-Functional Approach to Language Teaching by Robin Melrose The Body in Language by Horst Ruthrof
