Mental Spaces in Grammar

Conditional constructions have long fascinated linguists, grammarians and philosophers. In this pioneering new study, Barbara Dancygier and Eve Sweetser offer a new descriptive framework for the study of conditionality, broadening the range of richly described conditional constructions. They explore theoretical issues such as the mental-space-building processes underlying conditional thinking and the form-meaning relationship involved in expressing conditionality. Using a broad range of attested English conditional constructions, the book examines inter-constructional relationships. Within the framework of Mental Spaces Theory, shared parameters of meaning are shown to be relevant to conditional constructions generally, as well as related temporal and causal constructions. This significant contribution to the field will be welcomed by a wide range of researchers in theoretical and cognitive linguistics.

In 2010, Adam Rapoport experienced a life-changing epiphany. He wanted to travel the world, by any means necessary. But for the twenty-three-year-old son of an middle-upper-class family to do so, he would have to drop out of graduate school. Undaunted, he sold his possessions and hit the road with a backpack and $700 for the adventure of a lifetime. Adam wanted to experience the freedoms of homeless travel. Over the course of two years, he learned how to get around and survive on the road. He hitchhiked across the United States, he joined the crew of a sailboat and explored the Bahamas with a seemingly cursed captain. He then wound up working under the table in Central America. And finally, he studied under both wilderness survival experts and a spiritualist guru in Montana. Spiritual, adventurous, humorous, self-reflective, insightful, and even romantic, Memory of a Vagabond shows that following one's dream will bring you to places you never thought possible.

Alexi Venice's second novel, "Svea's Sins," is a thriller about a 2018 terrorist plot against the United States with nerve gas and drones, perpetuated by a beautiful Swedish woman who partners with the Russian President Vadik Volkov. Venice amps up the action and sophistication in her second novel featuring the brilliant and broken Pepper McCallan, a consultant to the U.S. Counterterrorism Agency. Venice swiftly drives a complex plot that traverses the world, using science and technology that are easily within reach, leveraging the absence of drone regulation. In "Svea's Sins," Pepper McCallan doesn't expect to be needed so urgently by Brent Cahill while she and her husband Bill are island-hopping in the Caribbean in the fall of 2018. But Brent discovers he needs Pepper's help to thwart a terrorist plot on America that incorporates nerve gas, drones and sexual liaisons between world leaders. Venice stakes out her style by weaving romance into thriller terror plots. The reader gets to know Brent Cahill's character as he builds a relationship with the love of his life, Jackie Starr, who is a high-powered CrossFit trainer, by taking her on a vacation to the island of St. Martin. Furthering their counterterrorism success, Brent Cahill and Pepper McCallan unnerve the stunning Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs, Svea Lovgren, by confronting her at a formal ball in Stockholm. Brent and Pepper consider Svea's twisted motives by analyzing her sexual rendezvous with Russian President Vadik Volkov. As Pepper is drawn deeper into clandestine travel, her husband, Bill McCallan, resumes his career as an orthopedic surgeon at Southview Hospital in Minneapolis. Bill unexpectedly finds himself at the center of a large scale disaster at Southview Hospital that has Svea Lovgren's handprints on it. In this riveting second novel, Pepper continues to enhance her reputation in the Counterterrorism Agency with the President of the United States in a not-so-distant future that proves to be as sinister as it is sentimental. Alexi Venice hits her stride with hotter romance and bioterrorism plots in the third Pepper McCallan novel, "Victus, Part I of Margaret River Winery." It will be available in Winter 2015.
