Fisiak, Jacek, Ed.
This volume contains ten articles and a book review. Josef Vachek talks about "Vilem Mathesius as Forerunner of Contrastive Linguistic Studies." In "Contrastive Generative Grammar and the Psycholinguistic Fallacy," Andrew Chesterman discusses methods for accounting for simplification in foreign language learning. Michael Post compares "English 'the-the' Constructions and Their Polish Equivalents," saying that despite different surface structures, they have identical semantic structures. A contrastive analysis of "The Generic Noun Phrase in English and Polish" is done by Janina Smolska and Jan Rusiecki. Ossi Ihalainen's "Some Remarks on Word Order and Definiteness in Finnish and English" discusses passive syntax. Also included are: "Similarities and Differences between Notional Passive Sentences in English and Polish," by Ireneusz Bobrowski; "Non-Typical Cases of Plural Nouns in English and Polish," by Barbara Dancygier; "Lexical Cohesion in Text Analysis," by Aleksander Szwedek; "An Investigation of Thai Interference in Selected American English Phonemes," by Eugene J. Briere and Colonel Sinuan Chiachanpong; and "Some Remarks about the Pragmatics of Negation in Polish and English," by Maria Kawinska. The review is "Phonology and Resonants: Some Remarks on Biedrzycki's 'Fonologica Angielskieh i polskich rezonantow,'" by Edmund Gussman. (PJM)
