    n A Tale of Two Remedies: Equity, Verb Aspect and the Whorfian Hypothesis (Deborah Charles Publications, 1998), Kurzon looks at the growth of equity in the Anglo-American legal system through the use of verbal aspect, especially the distinction between the perfective and the imperfective. These ideas were previously published in a number of articles (1995b, 1996e, 1997d; see Bibliography).
     
    In Discourse of Silence (Amsterdam: John Benjamins, 1997), Kurzon devotes a chapter to the right of silence in the legal process, a topic which is also discussed in several articles (1992a, 1992b, 1994b, 1995a, 1996b, 2000, 2008e).
     
    Among his numerous articles on legal language are found one on the essence of legal language (1997c), on incitement (1998), on the politeness of American and English judges in relation to their colleagues on the bench and to lawyers that have appeared before them (2001), and on defamation (2002a).
     
    Following the sudden death in 1998 of Roberta Kevelson, one of the leading Peircian philosophers, Kurzon edited a special issue of International Journal for the Semiotics of Law (1999) http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/bookdescription.cws_home/709649/descriptionconsisting of articles written by a number of scholars who work within the field of legal semiotics and who have been inspired by her work.
    Kurzon co-edited with John Gibbons the section on legal language in the Elsevier Encyclopedia of Language and Linguistics (published in December 2005) http://www.elsevier.com/wps/find/bookdescription.cws_home/709649/description .
     
    Kurzon's second major field of research is Indian sociolinguistics. In 2003 his book Where East Looks West: Success in English in Goa and on the Konkan Coast was published by Multilingual Matters. In this work, he examines the success in the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) among Konkani speakers (who live in Goa and on the Konkan coast of India), who have constantly achieved the highest average grade in the world in the test. See also Present Research.
     
    He is a member of the Editorial Board of the International Journal for the Semiotics of Law, of the Journal of Pragmatics, of the International Review of Pragmatics, and a member of the Advisory Board of Pragmatics and Discourse.
     
    Kurzon has also published in other fields. His book on silence, mentioned above, looks at silence in answer to questions in the context of conversation, in literary and biblical contexts, in music, and finally in the cinema. See also Present Research. Furthermore, applause as audience response has been analyzed in two articles based on recordings of various diplomatic ceremonies concerned with the Arab-Israel peace process (1996, and an article in Hebrew in 1997).
     
    He edited with the late Susanne Feigenbaum a collection of papers on the pragmatics, semantics and grammar of prepositions (published by John Benjamins of Amsterdam, 2002). The papers were presented at a conference on prepositions which he co-organized (with Susanne Feigenbaum) at Haifa University in June 2000. His paper was on the multifunctional preposition long in the Melanesian pidgin English, Bislama, spoken in Vanuatu.
     
    Kurzon has edited (with Silvia Adler) a further book of articles on adpositions, (http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=TSL%2074) with contributions from Israeli, European and American linguists (2008). His own article in the book deals with the status of the English adposition ago. He has also contributed the article on Adpositions for the Elsevier Encyclopedia of Language and Linguistics (2005).
     
    As well as analyzing pragmatically a Jane Austen novel in his book on silence, he has also looked at Thomas Hardy's major novels from a pragmatic perspective (1993, 1996d).
