Abstract

When William Barnes began publishing poems in the Dorset County Chronicle in the 1830s in the dialect of his native Blackmore Vale, the first poems that appeared were in the form of eclogues — dialogues between country people on country matters. Although an immediate success, the eclogues were in time overshadowed by the many lyric poems that Barnes published in the dialect. They are now perhaps the most undervalued works by this brilliant but neglected poet. Each eclogue is, effectively, a one-scene play, demanding performance for its potential to be realized. The phonemic transcripts in this book, based on the findings in T. L. Burton’s William Barnes’s Dialect Poems: A Pronunciation Guide (2010), show what the poems would have sounded like in Barnes’s own time; the accompanying audio recordings (made at the 2010 Adelaide Fringe) give living voice to the sounds noted in the transcripts.

Abstract

After publishing A Grammar of the Bedouin Dialects of the Northern Sinai Littoral: Bridging the Linguistic Gap between the Eastern and Western Arab World (Brill:2000), Rudolf de Jong completes his description of the Bedouin dialects of the Sinai Desert of Egypt by adding the present volume. To facilitate direct comparison of all Sinai dialects, the dialect descriptions in both volumes run parallel and are thus structured in the same manner. Quoting from his own extensive material and using a total of 95 criteria for comparison, De Jong applies the method of 'multi-dimensional scaling' and his own 'step-method' to arrive at a subdivision into eight (of which seven are 'Bedouin') typological groups in Sinai. An appendix with 68 maps and dialectrometrical plots completes the picture.

Abstract

Loin des stéréotypes qui enveloppent souvent l’image de “la” Sicile et occultent la complexité du réel, cet ouvrage s’attache à montrer la richesse et la diversité des Sicile(s) d’aujourd’hui. Les plus éminents représentants de la société civile et judiciaire, opérateurs culturels ou spécialistes des arts (littérature, théâtre, cinéma, BD) y confrontent leurs analyses. De grands artistes débattent des enjeux de la création dans le devenir de leur pays. Se révèle ainsi la tension constructive entre poids de l’Histoire et urgence de l’actualité, entre mémoire de la tradition et élans novateurs, entre passivité du désespoir et énergie de la révolte. Hors de tout repli dans une insularité close, les ferments sociaux, politiques, éthiques et esthétiques qui naissent et se développent en Sicile, ou à partir de la Sicile, apparaissent comme une force vitale essentielle. Le lecteur y reconnaîtra alors une sorte de “laboratoire” – sicilien, italien et/ou européen – du courage et de la créativité.
