Infectious diseases is an area of medicine that has always been relevant and important in all regions of the world. In recent years, the relevance and importance have been emphasized and heightened by a number of issues, including the emergence of new infections (such as HIV, the novel H1N1 influenza pandemic, avian flu, and severe acute respiratory syndrome) as well as increasing resistance to current established treatments of various infections (such as thosecaused by Streptococcus pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus species, several gram-negative bacteria, and Mycobacterium tuberculosis). There is a need to provide accurate and up-to-date information to infectious diseases practitioners who are at the front line of the effort against theseproblems. Mayo Clinic Infectious Diseases Board Review is a comprehensive, state-of-the-art publication. Written by practicing Mayo Clinic infectious diseases specialists, the book covers current and essential clinical aspects of diseases likely to be encountered by the infectious diseases specialist as well as to appear on the subspecialty infectious diseases board examination. Relevant and practical information is presented in an uncluttered format with liberal use of tables, diagrams,algorithms, and images as appropriate.While the primary audience of the book is practicing infectious diseases specialists preparing for their subspecialty board examination, the broader utility of this publication will include its use as an update for infectious diseases physicians, as a teaching curriculum in infectious diseases training programs, and as a user-friendly and practical resource in infectious diseases for noninfectious diseases physicians and health care providers. This publication will be a useful resource not onlyin the United States but throughout the world.This book considers the phenomenon of sluicing. Sluicing is the term applied to sentences in which the ellipsis of a sequence of words following an embedded wh question word appears to occur, and hearers must somehow recover the content of missing material (as in Someone saw her, but I don't know who _.). Elliptical constructions of this type are now known to occur widely in the world's languages in some form or another, and create interestingproblems for linguistic analysis, involving complex interactions between syntax, semantics and morphology, as well as prosody. The present volume brings together new research by leading experts who analyse sluicing constructions in English, Dutch, Frisian, Serbo-Croatian, Romanian, Turkish, Malagasy, Chinese, Japanese,Hindi and Bengali. The book expands our current understanding of the ways in which languages allow for ellipsis of the sluicing type to occur, and shows how sluicing constructions reveal important information about the general architecture of grammar. In addition to the nine chapters dedicated to specific languages, the volume features an introductory chapter and Haj Ross's original (1969) landmark paper on sluicing.
