Book Description: What effect does television viewing have on the quality of marriage life? This is one of the questions that the authors discuss within this new book, edited by Professor Amir Hetsroni from the Department of English, Culture and Communication at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University and published by Nova Science Publishers. This book includes entries written by leading international scholars that interpret the way romance is portrayed on television, and the mark left by this portrayal on viewers. About half of the chapters in this book present empirical inquires. The other half consists of theoretical and critical accounts. The collection offers in-depth analysis of some of the most successful programs in recent years in America (How I Met Your Mother), Britain (Silent Witness), Spain (Los Protegidos) and other countries along with detailed reviews of the home screen representation of love life within various demographic groups (single white men), age cohorts (elderly) and other sects. The outcome of exposure to popular programming on romantic fidelity, dating plans, cohabitation expectations and other romance-related concepts is thoroughly investigated. This book is an essential addition to any serious library collections in media studies. It can serve as a reference for undergraduate and graduate classes concerned with media effects and TV research. It also makes an interesting read for media personnel who are engaged in TV production and journalists who cover the topic. The editor, Amir Hetsroni, is a professor of communication at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University in China. He is the author/editor of four books and nearly 100 journal articles and book chapters. He is also a media celebrity in his home country, Israel, where he takes part in reality shows as a consultant and commentator, and takes an active role in anti-censorship campaigns.

Book Description: The annual Going Romance conference has developed into the major European discussion forum for theoretically relevant research on Romance languages where current ideas about language in general and about Romance languages in particular are tested. The twenty-third Going Romance conference was a very special one: for the first time it was not hosted by one of the Dutch universities, but was co-organized by the Radboud University Nijmegen and the Université de Nice-Sophia Antipolis and held in France at the Maison du Séminaire in Nice from 3–5 December 2009. The present volume contains a broad range of peer-reviewed articles dealing with syntax, phonology, morphology, semantics and acquisition of the Romance languages as well as selected papers from the special workshop dealing with linguistic change in relation to linguistic theory.

Book Description: The Oxford Guide to the Romance Languages is the most exhaustive treatment of the Romance languages available today. Leading international scholars adopt a variety of theoretical frameworks and approaches to offer a detailed structural examination of all the individual Romance varieties and Romance-speaking areas, including standard, non-standard, dialectal, and regional varieties of the Old and New Worlds. The book also offers a comprehensive comparative account of major topics, issues, and case studies across different areas of the grammar of the Romance languages. The volume is organized into 10 thematic parts: Parts 1 and 2 deal with the making of the Romance languages and their typology and classification, respectively; Part 3 is devoted to individual structural overviews of Romance languages, dialects, and linguistic areas, while Part 4 provides comparative overviews of Romance phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics and pragmatics, and sociolinguistics. Chapters in Parts 5-9 examine issues in Romance phonology, morphology, syntax, syntax and semantics, and pragmatics and discourse, respectively, while the final part contains case studies of topics in the nominal group, verbal group, and the clause. The book will be an essential resource for both Romance specialists and everyone with an interest in Indo-European and comparative linguistics.
