Earnshaw, Nora
Very slight crease to top edge of rear D/J. An overview of the dolls' house from the early 18th to the early 20th century, which includes a survey of dolls' house furniture and miniatures and of dolls' house dolls. It describes details such as the changing nature of furniture design and the technology of kitchen and household equipment. The author looks at houses that are available to collectors today and gives pre-purchase advice for all would-be buyers. One section is devoted to shops and rooms, which rivalled houses as instructive playthings for children. She also assesses major manufacturers and styles, and advice on repair and restoration. 144pp.

Rothstein, Susan
"Predicates and their Subjects" is an in-depth study of the syntax-semantics interface focusing on the structure of the subject-predicate relation. Starting from where the author's 1983 dissertation left off, the book argues that there is syntactic constraint that clauses (small and tensed) are constructed out of a one-place unsaturated expression, the predicate, which must be applied to a syntactic argument, its subject. The author shows that this predication relation cannot be reduced to a thematic relation or a projection of argument structure, but must be a purely syntactic constraint. Chapters in the book show how the syntactic predication relation is semantically interpreted, and how the predication relation explains constraints on DP-raising and on the distribution of pleonastics in English. The second half of the book extends the theory of predication to cover copular constructions; it includes an account of the structure of small clauses in Hebrew, of the use of 'be' in predicative and identity sentences in English, and concludes with a study of the meaning of the verb 'be'. 349pp.Volume 74 in the Studies in Linguistics and Philosophy Series.
