LIVING LANGUAGE is 25 essays on many aspects of a big subject. It is authoritative, by the long-time president of The American Society of Geolinguistics (ASG). ASG was founded in 1965 by Mario A. Pei for the study of language in action in the modern world as it affects culture, commerce, politics, personal and national identity, and indeed the whole macrosociolinguistic picture. ASG publishes the journal Geolinguistics and holds an annual international conference and it publishes the proceedings of participants from Europe, Asia, Australia, Central America, US, UK, etc. From those and other sources along with some brand new materials here is a variety of essays, presented in a familiar style, chiefly on American and British English but also English as the world’s second language, and more. This book is wide-ranging, wise, witty, opinionated, deeply researched, useful, & controversial.

Covering a strikingly diverse range of languages from 12 linguistic families, this handbook is based on responses to a questionnaire constructed by the editors. Focusing on the formation, distribution and semantic interpretation of quantificational expressions, the book explores 17 languages including German, Italian, Russian, Mandarin Chinese, Malagasy, Hebrew, Pima, Basque, and more. The language data sets enable detailed crosslinguistic comparison of numerous features. These include semantic classes of quantifiers (generalized existential, generalized universal, proportional, partitive), syntactically complex quantifiers (intensive modification, Boolean compounding, exception phrases) and several others such as quantifier scope ambiguities, quantifier float, and binary quantifiers. Its theory-independent content extends earlier work by Matthewson (2008) and Bach et al. (1995), making this handbook suitable for linguists, semanticians, philosophers of language and logicians alike.
