Abstract

Controversies and problems with regard to language policy and language education still exist in Malaysia. Despite the attempts of language policy makers to promote multilingualism, the implementation has been marred by political and religious affiliations. Malaysia is a melting pot of many different cultures and ethnicities, the three largest being Malay, Chinese and Indian. Therefore, an analysis of the language variation in this polyglot nation will help in understanding the variety of languages and those who speak them. This book gathers the work of researchers working in the field of language change in Malaysia for over two decades. As there is no book published internationally on the language policy in Malaysia and the effects on the language change in urban migrant populations, this book is a timely contribution not only to an understanding of Malaysian linguistic pluralism and its undercurrents, but also to an understanding of the Indian Diaspora.

Abstract

Waaraan herkennen wij een spreker als een Amsterdammer met een Marokkaanse achtergrond? En waaraan horen wij dat iemand een Nijmegenaar met Turkse wortels is? Wat heeft het taalgebruik van mensen met een Marokkaans een mensen met een Turkse achtergrond gemeen? Welke eigenaardigheden dringen door in 'inheemse' verschijningsvormen van het Nederlands?

In dit boek gaat het om deze en dergelijke vragen. Behalve het Marokkaanse en Turkse Nederlands komen daarbij onder meer het Surinaamse Nederlands en het Indonesische Nederlands, maar bijvoorbeeld ook het Joodse Nederlands aan de orde.

Het Nederlands varieert in toenemende mate ook in de culturele ruimte, die allereerst bepaald wordt door de oorspronkelijke godsdienstige en etnische achtergronden van de sprekers. Dit noem je etnolecten.

Etnolecten bevatten in het algemeen niet alleen exotische verschijnselen, zoals elementen uit de oorspronkelijk moedertaal. Maar ook verschijnselen die kenmerkend zijn voor tweedetaalverwerving (de meisje, de mooie meisje die daar loopt).

Etnolecten hebben onder jongeren een groeiend prestige en zijn deel van hun identiteit. Woorden en uitspraakgewoonten uit etnolecten komen via de straatcultuur, muziek, media en bekende figuren (Ali B) in de taal van jongeren terecht. Het boek is rijkelijk geïllustreerd met voorbeelden uit onder meer populaire tienersoaps.

Abstract

From its inception, big business in the western industrialised world has been organised in national business communities. Central elements of these business communities are corporate board interlocks that constitute the notorious 'Old Boys Network'. This corporate elite connects the centres of corporate governance. In recent times, these networks of the corporate elite show signs of decline. Heemskerk investigates how the decline of the old boys network in the Netherlands has affected Dutch capitalism. Combining formal network analysis with insights from interviews with key corporate elite members, he shows how during the last quarter of the 20th century the Dutch business community has disappeared. This is interpreted as a drift towards a liberal market economy. However, as the study shows, even in a liberal market economy corporate directors need social networks to communicate and coordinate their strategic decisions. Hence, the corporate elite shift its meeting network to private and informal circles. To order this book, mail to "mailto:orders@aup.nl">orders@aup.nl

Abstract

The linguistic relality in the Netherlands during the Golden Age was in fact one of multilingualism: so many languages and dialects were used. Nicoline van der Sijs and Marc van Oostendorp show how the emergence of the Dutch language can only be understood against this multilinguistic background.

Abstract

In 1609, the first Dutch settlers arrived in America and established trading posts, small towns, and forts up and down what we now call the Hudson River. To this day, American children are taught the thrilling history of the transformation of this settlement, New Netherland, and its capital, New Amsterdam, from landmark port into present-day New York State and the island of Manhattan. But, the Dutch legacy extended far beyond New York, as Cookies, Coleslaw and Stoops reveals. From Santa Claus (after the Dutch folklore saint Sinterklaas) and his sleigh (the pronunciation of the Dutch slee is almost identical) to a dumbhead talking poppycock, the contributions of the Dutch language to American English are indelibly embedded to some of our most vernacular terms and expressions. The menu in most of our restaurants sports some originally Dutch names, and even our dollar is named after a Dutch coin (daalder). In this captivating volume, the renowned linguist Nicoline van der Sijs glosses over 300 Dutch loan words like these that travelled to the New World on board the Dutch ship the Halve Maan, captained by Henry Hudson, which dropped anchor in Manhattan more than 400 years ago. Surprisingly, the Dutch also gave several Native American languages words for everyday things like "pants", "cat" and "turkey". Lively and accessible, the information presented in this volume charts the journey of these words into the American territory and languages, from more obscure uses which maybe have survived in only regional dialects to such ubiquitous contributions to our language like Yankee, cookie, and dope. Each entry marks the original arrival of its term into American English and adds up-to-date information on its evolving meaning, etymology, and regional spread. Not to be missed by anyone with a passion for the history behind our everyday expressions, Cookies, Coleslaw and Stoops is the perfect gift for the linguistic adventurer in us all.
