• Description : This book introduces the most important problems of reference and considers the solutions that have been proposed to explain them. Reference is at the centre of debate among linguists and philosophers and, as Barbara Abbott shows, this has been the case for centuries. She begins by examining the basic issue of how far reference is a two place (words-world) or a three place (speakers-words-world) relation. She then discusses the main aspects of the field and the issues associated with them, including those concerning proper names; direct reference and individual concepts; the difference between referential and quantificational descriptions; pronouns and indexicality; concepts like definiteness and strength; and noun phrases in discourse. Professor Abbott writes with exceptional verve and wit. She presupposes no technical knowledge or background and presents issues and analyses from first principles, illustrating them at every stage with well-chosen examples. Her book is addressed in the first place to advanced undergraduate and graduate students in linguistics and philosophy of language, but it will also appeal to students and practitioners in computational linguistics, cognitive psychology, and anthropology. All will welcome the clarity this guide brings to a subject that continues to challenge the leading thinkers of the age. [...] by Publisher : 'OUP Oxford'

• Description : Breaks down the treatment of each process into three categories: Knowledge, Application, and Development and organizes each process family based on common characteristics. Comprehensively illustrates, defines, and explains each process to provide the reader with an unequaled understanding of the process and its applications. Encourages an appreciation of the integration of design and manufacturing engineering activities that results in more practical, less expensive, and better designed products for the consumer. This item replaces 978-0-8311-3049-7. It is now a paperback/print-on-demand edition. Written by a team of educators with unmatched experience, in collaboration with a consortium of industrial representatives from Black and Decker, Boeing, Caterpillar, General Motors, Grumman, Tektronix, Texas Instruments, Westinghouse, and Xerox, Manufacturing Processes Reference Guide provides thorough descriptions of over 125 of the most important processes available to industry today. This important resource encompasses the entire spectrum of manufacturing, from "Abrasive Jet Machining" to "Wire Drawing." Used with Fundamental Principles of Manufacturing Processes, the two books provide all the information needed to identify the ideal process for a specific manufacturing requirement. "Todd, Allen, and Alting's book is intended to help integrate design and manufacturing engineering activities by providing students of engineering and designers in industry with easily accessible information about common manufacturing processes. The authors rightfully believe that the first step in designing a component is for the designer to become familiar with the processes that will be used in its manufacture. This always leads to more practical, less expensive, and better designed products. [Recommended for] upper-division undergraduate through professional." SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY Magazine.

• Description : Many consider Lewis Binford to be the single most influential figure in archaeology in the last half-century. His contributions to the "New Archaeology" changed the course of the field, as he argued for the development of a scientifically rigorous framework to guide the excavation and interpretation of the archaeological record. This book, the culmination of Binford's intellectual legacy thus far, presents a detailed description of his methodology and its significance for understanding hunter-gatherer cultures on a global basis. This landmark publication will be an important step in understanding the great process of cultural evolution and will change the way archaeology proceeds as a scientific enterprise. This work provides a major synthesis of an enormous body of cultural and environmental information and offers many original insights into the past. Binford helped pioneer what is now called "ethnoarchaeology"—the study of living societies to help explain cultural patterns in the archaeological record—and this book is grounded on a detailed analysis of ethnographic data from about 340 historically known hunter-gatherer populations. The methodological framework based on this data will reshape the paradigms through which we understand human culture for years to come. [...] by Publisher : 'University of California Press'

• Description : Reflecting the dramatic changes shaped by rapidly developing technologies over the past six years, this new fourth edition of "Reference and Information Services" takes the introduction to reference sources and services significantly beyond the content of the first three editions. In Part I, Concepts and Processes, chapters have been revised and updated to reflect new ideas and methods in the provision of reference service in an era when many users have access to the Web. In Part II, "Information Sources and Their Use," discussion of each source type has been updated to encompass key resources in print and on the Web, where an increasing number of freely available sources join those purchased or licensed by libraries. A number of new authors are contributors to this new edition, bringing to their chapters their experience as teachers of reference and as practitioners in different types of libraries. Discussions of services in Part I integrate digital reference as appropriate to each topic, such as how to conduct a reference interview online using instant messaging. Boxes interspersed in the text are used to present scenarios for discussion, to highlight key concepts, or to present excerpts from important documents. Discussions of sources in Part II place more emphasis on designing effective search strategies using both print and digital resources. The chapter on selection and evaluation of sources addresses the changing nature of reference collections and how to evaluate new types of sources. Each chapter concludes with an updated list of additional readings to guide further study. A new companion website will provide links to Web-accessible readings and resources as well as additional scenarios for discussion and example search strategies to supplement those presented in the text.
