Language Matters: A Sociolinguistic Analysis of Language and Nationalism in Guam, the Philippines, and Puerto Rico

Author: 

Clampitt-Dunlap, Sharon, Ed.D.

Credentials: 

Professor, Inter-American University of Puerto Rico

Taking a sociolinguistics-in-action approach, Language Matters explores the language situations in Guam, the Philippines and Puerto Rico, three geographic areas that experienced the effect of linguistic imperialism in a historically similar timeframe and manner, but with very different results. English has all but replaced the native language of Guam, plays a significant role in the multilingual society of the Philippines, but is barely existent in the daily lives of Puerto Ricans, who are mostly monolingual Spanish speakers. Language Matters is the first book to explain why this is.

Tradition and Innovation in Russian Church Slavonic Hymnography

Author: 

Nelson, Elena

Credentials: 

Holy Trinity Orthodox Seminary, Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley

Liturgical languages are notoriously rigid: they are fixed, sacred, and resistant to change, despite surrounding linguistic developments. This work focuses on the highly specialized and stylized liturgical language of Russian Church Slavonic (RCS). Historically, authorities strictly controlled RCS so that it would conform to established norms. Nevertheless, innovations arose in response to various conditions.

Ella Young and Her World: Celtic Mythology, The Irish Revival and The Californian Avant-Garde

Author: 

McDowell, Dorothea

Credentials: 

UCD, Womens Studies

Ella Young (1867-1956) the Irish poet, Celtic mythologist and author presents a number of problems to any researcher—she not only lived an Irish life of almost 60 years but she went on to have a dramatically different life in California that lasted over 30 years until her death. She also managed to write an autobiography that labeled her in many eyes as a Bohemian free spirit and not a a scholar with a vast knowledge of Irish myth and Celtic lore.

Author: 

Curraoin, Diarmuid

Credentials: 

Irish language scholar/National University of Ireland/Sandford Park

The central theme of this monograph is James Joyce's employment of the Irish language in 'Finnegans Wake', the virtuosity with which he makes use of the tongue, the understanding of its grammatical and syntactical subtleties which he reveals in the book and "the explanatory treasure of heart and mind" , as the the author put it himself, which the Gaelic component of the writer's final word on the world provides.

Exiled in Language: The Poetry of Margaret Diesendorf, Walter Billeter, Rudi Krausman and Manfred Jurgensen

Author: 

Tonetto, Walter Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Ph.D; Lecturer in the School of Literature, Waseda University; Lecturer in the University of Tokyo, Komaba.

Exile is ubiquitous in 20th century literature whether temporary expatriation or permanent flight. This quartet of self-exiled German - Australian poets/writers provides an unusual exile of second remove and an extraordinary study in language praxis. These gifted poets and critics fled to Australia because exile meant life and Nazi Europe meant death. They remained despite the lazy suspicion of many native Australians that these scholars were “worse than the pommies” (a terrible thing to be called in Oz) and were “prancing poufter poetasters”.
