This volume contains contributions dealing with the syntax, morphology, semantics and diachronic development of the Perfect and the components it is built on across languages. The text brings these aspects together, working towards a comprehensive theory of the Perfect which takes into consideration the interfaces between the various components of the grammar. Issues addressed include: the temporal versus aspectual character of the Perfect, the contribution of adverbial modification and the structure of the perfect participle.

This book is a collection of new articles that focus on nominal inflection markers in different languages. The studies are concerned with the morphological inventories of markers, their syntactic distribution, and, importantly, the interaction between the two. As a result, the contributions shed new light on the morphology/syntax interface, and on the role of morpho-syntactic features in mediating between the two components. Issues that feature prominently throughout are inflection class, case, gender, number, animacy, syncretism, iconicity, agreement, the status of paradigms, the nature of mo

"Medicine is a funny business. Already vulnerable people make themselves even more vulnerable at the hands of another person who is often a complete stranger. They follow the stranger’s advice, which often involves doing things that make them feel worse and the point of which they often don’t understand. This advice comes with a hefty price tag. All of that is why medical ethics are so important. And given the changes in medicine over the past several decades, Hippocrates’ Oath is no longer enough to guide doctors through Hippocrates’ Maze.

This book presents the first comprehensive introduction to congregational studies in the UK. Through a series of innovative essays, it explores the difference that the increasingly post-Christian nature of British society is making to life in Christian congregations, and compares this to the very different scenario which exists in the USA. Contributions from leading scholars in the field include rich case studies of local communities and theoretical analyses which reflect on issues of method and develop broader understandings. Congregational studies is revealed as a rich and growing fiel

Every Sunday all over the world people rise up and claim to speak in the name of God. It is an astonishing thing to do and an astonishing claim to make. It is small wonder that the sermon has been the focus of debate, discussion and investigation. It has been dismissed as irrelevant in today’s culture and has become the butt of numerous jokes and caricatures. Yet the claim persists that these human words in some way can become God’s message to these hearers. This collection of twenty-nine articles by international experts in the area of homiletics coincides with the revival of inte

Presenting a rich account of women’s faith lives and, mapping women’s meanings in their own right, this book offers an alternative to dominant accounts of faith development which failed to account for women’s experience. Drawing on Fowler’s faith development theory, feminist models of women’s faith and social science methodology, the text explores the patterns and processes of women’s faith development and spirituality in a group of thirty women belonging to, or on the edges of, Christian tradition.  Integrating practical theological concern with Chris
