Kyoto Working Papers in English and General Linguistics (KWPEGL) Vol. 2 is a journal edited by a committee of six members: Michiko Yaguchi, Hiroyuki Takagi, Kairi Igarashi, Tsutomu Watanabe, Takafumi Maekawa and Taiki Yoshimura. The aim of this volume is to publicise research based on the seminars and conferences in Kyoto organised by Professor Kensei Sugayama and, simultaneously, to express the editors' and the contributors' deepest gratitude to him on the occasion of his 60th birthday. The journal contains articles on all core fields of English and General Linguistics, including syntax, morphology, semantics, historical and corpus linguistics and pragmatics.
This volume is special in many respects. We are very proud that Professors Richard Hudson and Yan Huang, who are highly-respected scholars in Word Grammar and pragmatics respectively, as well as Professors Yoko Iyeiri and Haruko Sera, both eminent researchers, have contributed articles. The invited contributors’ insights into the English language have elucidated important issues regarding pied-piping, micro- and macro-pragmatics, the usage of try, and political speech, which makes this volume invaluable in important ways. In addition to these four, 16 scholars have submitted new ideas and hypotheses about issues in a number of areas of linguistic research by employing various linguistic theories and approaches such as Word Grammar, Cognitive Grammar, statistical approach and other methods. As a result, KWPEGL Vol. 2 covers a substantial range of recent research in English and General Linguistics including issues of clitics, dependency structure, constructions, Qualia structure and idioms, complement patterns, control, translation, metaphor, and grammaticalisation. We hope that the reader will find some useful ideas for the research of their own and deepen their understanding of the structure and development of languages.
KWPEGL Vol. 2 should be of significance to anyone interested in linguistic phenomena in regard to English and other languages.
