      In this book, Shigeru Miyagawa continues his investigation into a computational equivalent for agreement in agreementless languages such as Japanese. Miyagawa extends his theory of Strong Uniformity, introduced in his earlier book, Why Agree? Why Move? Unifying Agreement-Based and Discourse-Configurational Languages (MIT Press, ). He argues Abstract This study examines the uses of Mandarin Chinese buguo ‘but’ as a contrastive discourse marker (CM) in spoken discourse. The data were taken from casual conversations, TV/radio single-interviewee interviews and TV panel news interviews. We found that two main types of the CM buguo were used to mark contrast: restrictive buguo and cancellative ://

The book also contrasts Standard Arabic with other Arabic varieties spoken in the Arab world. An engaging guide to Arabic syntax, this book will be invaluable to graduate students interested in Arabic grammar, as well as syntactic theorists and typologists.

Discourse configurationality is not an all or nothing phenomenon, and languages vary as to their degree of discourse configurationality. In particular, they vary in terms of what grammatical phenomena are sensitive to discourse functions like topic and focus, and to what extent these notions are ‘structure-building’.

In old Indo-European languages such as Old Indian, Ancient Greek and Hittite, sentences are documented that indicate the discourse-configurational word order topic – focus – verb.

There are, however, many deviations. To show to what extent the above mentioned languages are on the continuum between information structure and syntax, the kind of topic and focus, verb placement and the nature.
