Abstract: Introducing Pragmatics in Use is a lively and accessible introduction to pragmatics, which both covers theory and applies it to real spoken and written data. Pragmatics is the study of language in context, yet most textbooks rely on invented language examples. This innovative textbook systematically draws on language corpora to illustrate features such as creativity in small talk or how we apologise in English. The authors investigate the pragmatic implications of the globalisation of the English language and focus on the applications of pragmatics for teaching languages. In addition, a practical chapter on researching pragmatics aimed at developing students' research skills is included. With a range of tasks aimed at putting theory into practice and chapter by chapter further reading recommendations, this is the ideal textbook for advanced undergraduate or postgraduate students of pragmatics and corpus linguistics within applied language/linguistics or TEFL/TESOL degrees

La camera del cielo : romanzo / Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens ; traduzione di Mara Dompè

[Milano] : Nord, 2011

Abstract: Florian MacClary l'ha trovata. Nelle profondità dell'oceano Pacifico, è nascosta una camera interamente decorata con le costellazioni celesti e che, al centro, ha un tavolo di pietra su cui sono incisi dodici simboli enigmatici. Ma il destino di Florian e della sua squadra è segnato: caduti in trappola, vengono uccisi da uno spietato assassino, che s'impadronisce anche di un reperto unico... David Weir ha pochi mesi di vita. Nel corso delle sue ricerche presso il Laboratorio d'identificazione del DNA, gestito dall'esercito americano, ha rintracciato gruppi d'individui apparentemente normali, ma che presentano una sconcertante anomalia: una sequenza genetica sconosciuta che li porta a morire prima dei 27 anni d'età. David ha 26 anni ed è uno di loro... Jessica MacClary è sconvolta. Nel quartier generale della fondazione della sua famiglia, sotto una volta ricoperta di stelle, la ragazza apprende che sarà lei a proseguire la missione di sua zia Florian. Ciò significa che diventerà una dei Dodici Difensori e che sarà la custode di un segreto antichissimo... Dai ghiacci dell'Artico alle capitali europee, dai mari del Sud ai casinò di Atlantic City, Jessica e David saranno costretti ad allearsi in una disperata corsa contro il tempo per annullare la condanna codificata nel DNA del giovane scienziato e svelare un mistero che risale all'origine stessa della civiltà umana.

A song of ice and fire. 1: A game of thrones / George R. R. Martin

New York : Bantam, 2011

Abstract: First volume of a brilliant new fantasy trilogy: the most powerful, original and absorbing new epic since Stephen Donaldson's Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. The first volume of George R R Martin's glorious high fantasy tells the tragic story of treachery, greed and war that threatens the unity of the Seven Kingdoms south of the Wall. Martin unfolds with astonishing skill a tale of truly epic dimensions, thronged with memorable characters, a story of treachery and ambition, love and magic. Set in a fabulous world scarred by battle and catastrophe over 8000 years of recorded history, it tells of the deeds of men and women locked in the deadliest of conflicts and the terrible legacy they will leave their children. In the game of thrones, you win or you die. And in the bitter-cold, unliving lands beyond the Wall, a terrible winter gathers and the others -- the undead, the neverborn, wildlings to whom the threat of the sword is nothing -- make ready to descend on the realms of men. A Game of Thrones begins the most imaginative, ambitious and compelling fantasy epic since The Lord of the Rings. Thronged with memorable characters, it unfolds with astonishing skill a tale of truly epic dimensions. There have been many pretenders to the throne of Tolkien: now at last he has a true heir.

Vacanze in villa / Madeleine Wickham [i. e. Sophie Kinsella] ; traduzione di Nicoletta Lamberti

Milano : Mondadori, 2011

Abstract: Chloe ha davvero bisogno di una vacanza. Non ne può più di confezionare abiti nuziali, lei poi che non è neanche sposata! Ed è un momento delicato perché Philip, il suo compagno, ha seri problemi di lavoro e non riesce a pensare ad altro. Meno male che Gerard, uno dei suoi più cari amici, le presta la sua meravigliosa villa in Spagna dove trascorrere qualche giorno in pace... Hugh non è felice. Amanda, la sua impeccabile moglie, sembra più interessata ai colori delle pareti del loro lussuoso appartamento che a lui, e a Hugh non resta che lavorare dalla mattina alla sera. Ma Gerard, un vecchio compagno di scuola che ha rincontrato per caso, gli dà l'occasione di spezzare questa opprimente routine proponendogli un breve soggiorno nella sua casa in Spagna... Perfetto! E così Chloe e Hugh si ritrovano con le rispettive famiglie nello stesso momento e nello stesso posto, scoprendo con grande disappunto che Gerard ha promesso la villa a entrambi. Dopo lo sconcerto iniziale, sono costretti a convivere tra piccoli disagi e, soprattutto, tensioni sotterranee. Perché Chloe e Hugh hanno un passato in comune, un passato che torna prepotentemente a galla durante una vacanza che si rivelerà piena di imprevisti e sorprese. Vacanze in villa è una commedia sulla difficoltà di difendere l'amore dalle insidie dell'abitudine e della quotidianità, in una sfida che si combatte - e si vince - giorno dopo giorno.

Firenze [etc.] : Giunti, 2011

Abstract: 'With a queer obedience, she lay down on the blanket. Then she felt the soft, groping, helplessy desiderous hand touching her body, feeling for her face. The hand stroked her face softly, softly, with infinite soothing and assurance, and at last there was the soft touch of a kiss on her cheek. She lay quite still, in a sort of sleep, in a sort of dream.' In versione integrale, i più grandi classici della letteratura angloamericana in lingua originale.
