Table of contents
Several features make this densely written, highly technical book, based on a [ p. 178 ]1997 doctoral thesis, particularly interesting: It is the result of considerable theoretical reflection, is tangibly interdisciplinary, imports into interpreting research (IR) relevant linguistic concepts and theories in a highly integrated way, and presents a detailed linguistic description of a set of corpora, incorporating the Chinese-English combination. After a brief description of the book’s content, this review offers a more evaluative account.
