Deixis – the rooting of utterances in the speech situation – is one of the most salient universals of natural language. The ways in which different languages link utterances to pragmatic factors such as speech time, speech place, and speech participants show a rich variation. This makes deixis a particular fruitful domain for the study of universals, language comparison, and the relationship between language and reality. This volume presents and discusses deictic systems of both Indo-European and non-Indo-European languages, including Russian, Czech, Spanish, German (standard and dialect), Hungarian, Chinese, Japanese, Hausa, Swahili, Hopi, Eipo, Tolai, Diyari. Focus is on spatial deixis, but other deictic and demonstrative expressions are treated as well.

The global economy threatens the uniqueness of places, people, and experiences. In Here and There, Bill Conlogue tests the assumption that literature and local places matter less and less in a world that economists describe as “flat,” politicians believe has “globalized,” and social scientists imagine as a “global village.” Each chapter begins at home, journeys elsewhere, and returns to the author’s native and chosen region, northeastern Pennsylvania. Through the prisms of literature and history, the book explores tensions and conflicts within the region created by national and global demand for its resources: fertile farmland, forest products, anthracite coal, and college-educated young people. Making connections between local and global environmental issues, Here and There uses the Pennsylvania watersheds of urban Lackawanna and rural Lackawaxen to highlight the importance of understanding and protecting the places we call home.

That Silent Evening I will go back to that silent evening when we lay together and talked in silent voices, while outside slow lumps of soft snow fell, hushing as they got near the ground, with a fire in the room, in which centuries of tree went up in continuous ghost-giving-up, without a crackle, into morning light. Not until what hastens went slower did we sleep. When we got home we turned and looked back at our tracks twining out of the woods, where the branches we brushed against let fall puffs of sparkling snow, quickly, in silence, like stolen kisses, and where the scritch scritch scritch among the trees, which is the sound that dies inside the sparks from the wedge when the sledge hits it off center telling everything inside it is fire, jumped to a black branch, puffed up but without arms and so to our eyes lonesome, and yet also--how can we know this?--happy! in shape of chickadee. Lying still in snow, not iron-willed, like railroad tracks, willing not to meet until heaven, but here and there treading slubby kissing stops, our tracks wobble across the snow their long scratch. So many things that happen here are really little more, if even that, than a scratch, too. Words, in our mouths, are almost ready, already, to bandage the one whom the scritch scritch scritch, meaning if how when we might lose each other, scratches scratches scratches from this moment to that. Then I will go back to that silent evening, when the past just managed to overlap the future, if only by a trace, and the light doubles and casts through the dark a sparkling that heavens the earth.

"Life Between Here and There" is an inspirational book to encourage everyone to seek to accomplish more. In addition, the book challenges governments to end corruption and to do more for their citizens. After all, government corruption will destroy a country and its people all too quickly. Wisdom for today: The purpose of life is to find better opportunities. At age seven, I told my mother, "I had a dream last night. I saw myself working in the post office." It was not a big dream such as becoming a doctor, lawyer, singer or a scientist. Children at a certain age start thinking about their future. Parents and other adults will start asking children what they think they may want to do in life. Questions about the future help the child to reach out to explore and begin to connect to the future. I took my dream as a revelation. The post office job was what I was supposed to do. It was part of a plan that God had for me. Most people would laugh at that goal and say, "Maybe you should try for another job that is more important," or "Are you sure that is all God wants you to do?" They are good challenging questions to my 'dream' job, but I felt confident that I should pursue this job as my priority. Unfortunately, I lived in a country that had educational limitations-no computers, no government support, no student grants; and many students dropped out for financial reasons. No one in the family spoke of going to college. Just graduating from high school could be an impossible dream for many reasons. Whether my mother believed that my dream would come true, I had no way of knowing at my young age of seven. I had no awareness of the difficulties that lay ahead of me to achieve the post office job or any job at all. As I grew older, I had other dreams, and I continued to believe God had sent me messages even as a child that actually came to fruition: coming to the United States, having a wife and children, and writing a book to inspire others. My parents taught me and my siblings to go to church. As a child, I learned to pray and to have faith that God answers prayers. As I grew older, I learned that dreams and prayers do not get answered right away. God works in His own ways in His own timing. In some cases, some dreams and prayers may not get answered the way we wanted them to turn out. Does that mean that we should lose faith in God? When what we dream and pray for doesn't come, that's when we learn about patience. For that reason, I've learned a lot about patience over the years, and I'm still learning. In addition, I have learned that some dreams may come, but interference by others may interfere with or destroy our dreams. All I can say is that God always has lessons for us to learn. After all, none of us knows our future perfectly. In the end, all of us can be humbled because God teaches us that life does not guarantee an easy journey to our accomplishments. New surprises, changes, and challenges will thwart us on the journey. God may seem to stop us or redirect us when we are otherwise happy just to keep going along our set path. The devil and those who are evil are always around us and evil influences can change our future. Jesus had difficult times with the devil and those who set out to hurt him, so I, too, cannot always assume my life as a Christian will be easy. Things happen for good, although some things seem to bring bad results. One never knows just how God works. He always has new doors to open for us. But going back to age seven, my first important dream was to work in the post office. It seemed a rather small dream, but to my seven year old brain, it was something I felt that I could accomplish. However, I had no idea of my mother's thoughts when I revealed my dream. If I had been able to hear her doubting me, I would have asked her why. In the years ahead, I would learn what she was thinking: even little goals may not be possible, because you're growing up in Africa.
