Language History, Language Change, and Language...

Why does language change? Why can we speak to and understand our parents but have trouble reading Shakespeare? Why is Chaucer's English of the fourteenth century so different from Modern English of the late twentieth century that the two are essentially different languages? Why are Americans and English 'one people divided by a common language'? And how can the language of Chaucer and Modern English - or Modern British and American English - still be called the same language? The present book provides answers to questions like these in a straightforward way, aimed at the non-specialist, with ample illustrations from both familiar and more exotic languages. Most chapters in this new edition have been reworked, with some difficult passages removed, other passages thoroughly rewritten, and several new sections added, e.g. on the regularity of sound change and its importance for general historical-comparative linguistics. Further, the chapter notes and bibliography have all been updated. The content is engaging, focusing on topics and issues that spark student interest. Its goals are broadly pedagogical and the level and presentation are appropriate for interested beginners with little or no background in linguistics. The language coverage for examples goes well beyond what is usual for books of this kind, with a considerable amount of data from various languages of India.

Three Victorians in the New World
51,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A critical examination of the works of three English novelists who visited the United States during the nineteenth century: Frances Trollope, Charles Dickens, and Anthony Trollope. These three produced letters, travel books, and novels, which taken together represent unique commentaries on life during the last century. Utilizing unpublished letters, diaries, and journals of Frances Trollope and Charles Dickens, and collections of letters of Dickens and Anthony Trollope, the study compares their immediate reaction to the scenes and facts of American society with the published travel books, and then with the fictional forms all three subsequently employed in utilizing American scenes or characters.
