Subject: Free Demo Versions of Mouton Multimedia Products
We would like to invite you to visit www.mouton-online.com for free
demo versions of two forthcoming Mouton multimedia products: "The
Mouton Interactive Introduction to Historical Linguistics of German"
and "A Handbook of Varieties of English."
The Mouton multimedia products combine the advantages of traditional
books and multimedia concepts. The rich visual and auditory support of
our products makes these an ideal learning and teaching tool at a
graduate and undergraduate level while also being a useful research
database for all linguists.
"The Mouton Interactive Introduction to Historical Linguistics of
German" (http://www.mouton-online.com/histling.php) provides an
overview of the historical development of the German language from its
beginnings to the present day. It presents and interprets core changes
in phonology, morphology, syntax and lexis, and illustrates them using
multi-media visualizations. In addition, the CD-ROM contains
comprehensive material on textual transmission in the various
historical periods of German and on contemporary approaches to
explaining language change.
With more than 100 original contributions authored by widely acclaimed
specialists in the field, the two-volume "Handbook of Varieties of
English" (http://www.mouton-online.com/varieties.php) is by far the
most comprehensive reference work on phonology and the first-ever
comprehensive overview of the morphology and syntax of varieties of
English in the world. It covers all main national standard varieties,
distinctive regional, ethnic, and social varieties, major contact
varieties, as well as major ESL varieties. The handbook will be
accompanied by a CD-ROM providing new sound material for each variety
as well as interactive maps. It will also include comprehensive
bibliographies and links to relevant websites.
We hope that you will enjoy these free sneak previews.
