Roscoe ‘Fatty’ Arbuckle made his triumphant return to comedy in the six sparkling Vitaphone shorts he headlines in this collection, two co-starring Shemp Howard himself. While Fatty’s return was tragically cut short by his untimely passing, another talent was on the rise – Shemp Howard, sporting one unforgettable mug. Witness Shemp’s career path from bit player to chief second banana in the span of two short years. The 18 shorts found in this 2-Disc collection were all shot in Depression Era Brooklyn by the Vitaphone team, providing a magical (and hilarious!) look at a lost time and place.

English | PDF,EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 185 Pages | ISBN : 9811062072 | 5.46 MB

This book concerns two focus particles (jiu, dou) and wh-expressions (shenme = ‘what’, na geren = ‘which person’) in Mandarin Chinese. These items are systematically ‘ambiguous’ and have played important roles in various aspects of Mandarin grammar. An idea based on alternatives and varieties of alternatives in particular – following Chierchia’s 2013 analysis of the polarity system – is pursued to account for the systematic ambiguities.
