Ce numéro, réservé à un fait de langue plutôt qu'à une école théorique, s'adresse en priorité à tous ceux - étudiants de master ou de concours, chercheurs débutants ou confirmés - qui sont intéressés par la question de l'ordre des mots et de l'inversion du sujet (V-S ou LOC-V-S ou ADJ-V-S) dans la phrase assertive. Le but des responsables du volume (Christine Copy & Lucie Gournay) a été de regrouper dans un même recueil des articles ou des synthèses relevant d'approches différentes sur un phénomène qui est largement débattu en ce moment par un bon nombre de linguistes, en particulier par les linguistes énonciativistes. Au-delà des clivages théoriques, ou de la variété des disciplines, il a semblé pertinent de regrouper sous une même couverture les problématiques et les hypothèses formulées par les spécialistes de la question. En effet, toutes les contributions proviennent de chercheurs qui ont déjà travaillé sur des problèmes d'agencement de phrases. De plus, dans chaque contribution, il est fait mention des acquis des approches " adverses "... et l'on se rend compte que la confrontation va de pair avec une certaine complémentarité. Ainsi cet ouvrage a une double ambition : concerner tous ceux qui travaillent sur l'ordre des mots en français et en anglais, apporter une contribution non négligeable à la comparaison des idées en linguistique.

Narrating The Law

In Narrating the Law Barry Scott Wimpfheimer creates a new theoretical framework for considering the relationship between law and narrative and models a new method for studying talmudic law in particular. Works of law, including the Talmud, are animated by a desire to create clear usable precedent. This animating impulse toward clarity is generally absent in narratives, the form of which is better able to capture the subtleties of lived life. Wimpfheimer proposes to make these different forms compatible by constructing a narrative-based law that considers law as one of several "languages," along with politics, ethics, psychology, and others that together compose culture. A narrative-based law is capable of recognizing the limitations of theoretical statutes and the degree to which other cultural languages interact with legal discourse, complicating any attempts to actualize a hypothetical set of rules. This way of considering law strongly resists the divide in traditional Jewish learning between legal literature (Halakhah) and nonlegal literature (Aggadah) by suggesting the possibility of a discourse broad enough to capture both. Narrating the Law activates this mode of reading by looking at the Talmud's legal stories, a set of texts that sits uncomfortably on the divide between Halakhah and Aggadah. After noticing that such stories invite an expansive definition of law that includes other cultural voices, Narrating the Law also mines the stories for the rich descriptions of rabbinic culture that they encapsulate.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Don’t miss an original essay by John Grisham in the back of the book. John Grisham takes you back to where it all began. One of the most popular novels of our time, A Time to Kill established John Grisham as the master of the legal thriller. Now we return to Ford County as Jake Brigance finds himself embroiled in a fiercely controversial trial that exposes a tortured history of racial tension. Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County’s most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises many more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly? And what does it all have to do with a piece of land once known as Sycamore Row? Look for special features inside. Join the Random House Reader’s Circle for author chats and more. Praise for Sycamore Row “Powerful . . . immensely readable . . . the best of his books.”—The Washington Post “Welcome back, Jake. . . . [Brigance] is one of the most fully developed and engaging characters in all of Grisham’s novels.”—USA Today “One of [Grisham’s] finest . . . Sycamore Row is a true literary event.”—The New York Times Book Review From the Trade Paperback edition.
