Strong women dominate these reminiscences: the grandmother taught the girl whose mother refused to let her go to school, and the life-changing events they witnessed range from the ravages of the influenza epidemic of 1918-20, to murder committed in a jealous rage, to the abduction of a young woman by underground spirits who grant her healing powers upon her release. A highly personal document, these memoirs are altogether exceptional in recounting the thoughts and feelings of a Cree woman as she copes with the impacts of colonialism but also, in a key chapter, with her loneliness while tending a relative's children in a place far from home-and away from the company of other women. Her experiences and reactions throw fresh light on the lives lived by Plains Cree women on the Canadian prairies over much of the twentieth century. Sarah Whitecalf (1919-1991) spoke Cree exclusively, spending most of her life at Nakiwacihk / Sweetgrass Reserve on the North Saskatchewan River. This is where Leonard Bloomfield was told what would be collected as Sacred Stories of the Sweet Grass Cree in 1925 and where a decade later David Mandelbaum apprenticed himself to Ka-miyokisihkwew / Fineday, the step-grandfather in whose family Sarah Whitecalf grew up.In presenting a Cree woman's view of her world, these memoirs directly reflect the spoken word: Sarah Whitecalf's reminiscences are here printed in Cree exactly as she recorded them, with a close English translation on the facing page. These chapters constitute an autobiography of great personal authority and rare authenticity.

It might seem as if globalization is making the whole world speak English. But spend time in any major city and you are likely to encounter a cornucopia of languages. Even monolingual people have different ways of speaking to their bosses or teachers, their intimate friends or their pets. And if you live in India or Nigeria, you might use five different languages in the course of a normal day. Bilingual Oxford professor Katrin Kohl makes a passionate case for why we must embrace languages in all their diversity. When you study a language, you gradually open a unique doorway into the world, immerse yourself in a different way of seeing, and discover new ways of communicating with people from different cultures on their terms. Languages open our minds to the diversity of human life in its complex relationships with nature, culture and technology. They enable us to understand why cultural diversity matters, and why we should care about preserving it as much as we care about preserving the diversity of our biological world.

What did a gongfarmer do? How is a chaperone connected to a bird of prey? What is the etymology behind cloud architect? And is there a link between secretaries and secrets? The story behind these (and many more) job titles is rarely predictable and often fascinating. In this highly original book, Alexander Tulloch examines the etymology behind a selection of trades and professions, unearthing intriguing nuggets of historical information along the way. Here you will find explanations of common surnames, such as Spencer, Hayward and Fletcher; obsolete jobs such as pardoner, cordwainer or telegraph boy; and roles for the modern era, such as wedding planner, pundit and sky marshal. Packed with additional etymological information and literary quotations, this book will appeal not only to linguists but also to anyone interested in the quirky twists and turns of meaning which have given us the job titles with which we are familiar today.

We live in a multilingual, transforming society in which language plays a dynamic and central role. We use it every day for communication and it is not possible to imagine life without it - it is generally recognised as a mark of what makes us human. But how often do we think about exactly what language is and how we actually use it? Language, society and communication introduces established and new linguistic concepts and theories, and links these to contemporary issues in society and the media, including new social media, with a particular focus on southern Africa. Language, society and communication explores how language is intricately bound up with issues of power, status and identity. It explores the tension between the diverse nature of everyday language practices, on the one hand, and the societal pressures towards managing and containing this diversity, on the other. It also demonstrates the relevance of linguistic study (e.g. phonology and syntax) to real world problems (e.g. analysis of a child's acquisition of language), within a southern African context. Study questions and case studies, which relate the theoretical ideas discussed to current research, are provided at the end of each chapter. Language, society and communication is aimed at undergraduate students studying linguistics, language and communication and related fields such as language education.

Cherokee Reference Grammar (Paperback): Brad Montgomery-Anderson Cherokee Reference Grammar (Paperback)
Brad Montgomery-Anderson
R928 Discovery Miles 9 280 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The Cherokees have the oldest and best-known Native American writing system in the United States. Invented by Sequoyah and made public in 1821, it was rapidly adopted, leading to nineteenth-century Cherokee literacy rates as high as 90 percent. This writing system, the Cherokee syllabary, is fully explained and used throughout this volume, the first and only complete published grammar of the Cherokee language. Although the Cherokee Reference Grammar focuses on the dialect spoken by the Cherokees in Oklahoma - the Cherokee Nation and the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians - it provides the grammatical foundation upon which all the dialects are based. In his introduction, author Brad Montgomery-Anderson offers a brief account of Cherokee history and language revitalization initiatives, as well as instructions for using this grammar. The book then delves into an explanation of Cherokee pronunciation, orthography, parts of speech, and syntax. While the book is intended as a reference grammar for experienced scholars, Montgomery-Anderson presents the information in accessible stages, moving from easier examples to more complex linguistic structures. Examples are taken from a variety of sources, including many from the Cherokee Phoenix. Audio clips of various text examples throughout can be found on the accompanying CDs. The volume also includes three appendices: a glossary keyed to the text; a typescript for the audio component; and a collection of literary texts: two traditional stories and a historical account of a search party traveling up the Arkansas River. The Cherokee Nation, as the second-largest tribe in the United States and the largest in Oklahoma, along with the United Keetoowah Band and the Eastern band of Cherokees, have a large number of people who speak their native language. Like other tribes, they have seen a sharp decline in the number of native speakers, particularly among the young, but they have responded with ambitious programs for preserving and revitalizing Cherokee culture and language. Cherokee Reference Grammar will serve as a vital resource in advancing these efforts to understand Cherokee history, language, and culture on their own terms.

In 2014 word hierdie leemte gevul deur Kontemporere Afrikaanse Taalkunde. Die feit dat 'n tweede, hersiene uitgawe slegs drie jaar later verskyn, beklemtoon weereens die groot behoefte aan so 'n bron. Die samestelling van hierdie boek bied 'n nuwe blik op die taalkunde en het wye gebruikspotensiaal omdat dit die kernvelde van die taalkunde, en in die besonder van die Afrikaanse taalkunde, dek. Sodoende gee dit nuwe lewe aan 'n belangrike komponent in die bestudering van die Afrikaanse taal: die taalkunde en alles wat daarmee saamhang. Inhoud en konsepte strek van die ontstaan en aard van die Afrikaanse taal, leksikografie en dokumentontwerp tot fonetiek, fonologie, morfologie, sintaksis, semantiek, pragmatiek, taalverwerwing en die normatiewe taalkunde. Al die bestaande hoofstukke is op datum gebring, en 'n ekstra hoofstuk oor sintaksis is bygevoeg om nuwer sieninge te weerspieel. Bydraes deur spesialiste in die onderskeie velde bied daarom die nuutste navorsing en 'n verskeidenheid teoretiese vertrekpunte met die Afrikaanse taalkunde as fokus. Nuwe en moontlik selfs omstrede standpunte sal akademiese gesprek stimuleer, terwyl elke hoofstuk nasionale en internasionale ontwikkelinge op die bepaalde gebied voorle aan 'n nuwe geslag studente, onderwysers, akademici en taalpraktisyns.

Technical Communication Todayremains the only text to fully centralize the computer in the technical workplace, presenting how writers use computers throughout their communication process. Writers use their computers to help them think, research, compose, design, and edit. Not only is Technical Communication Today firmly rooted in core rhetorical principles, but the text also presents computers as thinking tools that powerfully influence how we develop, produce, design, and deliver technical documents and presentations. Clear instruction not only describes technical documents, but also guides the reader through the activity of producing them. Technical Communication Today helps communicators draft and design documents, prepare material for print and Web publication, and make oral presentations; by bringing computers to the foreground as thinking tools, it accurately reflects the modern day computer-centered technical workplace. Technical Communication Today speaks to today's students and how they expect to learn information. Instructional narrative is "chunked," so that readable portions of text are combined with graphics. Not only does this presentation facilitate learning, but it also models the way today's technical documents should be designed. Additionally, the chunked presentation integrates an awareness of how documents are read-often "raided" by readers seeking the information they need. By mirroring these processes in its content and structure, Technical Communication Today offers a higher level of accessibility for readers.

With new ideas and discoveries constantly challenging the ways we look at language, Ronald Macaulay provides a brief and lively introduction to some of the different approaches linguists have taken to the study of language in all its complexity.

Designed for the intending student, as well as the non-specialist general reader with an interest in language, Seven Ways of Looking at Language concisely conveys a review of exciting work in the core areas of linguistics, including phonetics, syntax, semantics, language interaction, language variation, language change and the significance of writing. A helpful glossary, as well as detailed suggestions for further reading, makes this the ideal starting point for anyone wishing to learn about the study of language.

Key words are bolded and defined in a glossary at the end of the book, while end-of-chapter summaries and practice exercises reinforce the key points discussed.
