Abstract

The volume collects original studies highlighting contemporary trends in historical sociolinguistics, as well as current research on the relationship between sociolinguistics and historical linguistics, social motivations of language variation and change, and corpus-based studies. Distinctive features of the book, which make it appealing to a wider audience, are the interdisciplinary nature of the chapters and the range of languages addressed.

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.

Abstract

These days, it is commonly forgotten that Bavarian-Austrian dialect art flourished in elite culture and even more in popular counterculture before 1800. The book makes the amazing variety of forms and modes of operation visible again. In eight chapters, the most important, predominantly unedited texts and their authors are presented, contextualized, and related to current research fields using an interdisciplinary approach.
