Language In The British Isles

by David Britain, Language In The British Isles Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Language In The British Isles books, The British Isles are home to a vast range of different spoken and signed languages and dialects. Language continues to evolve rapidly, in its diversity, in the number and the backgrounds of its speakers, and in the repercussions it has had for political and educational affairs. This book provides a comprehensive survey of the dominant languages and dialects used in the British Isles. Topics covered include the history of English; the relationship between Standard and Non-Standard Englishes; the major non-standard varieties spoken on the islands; and the history of multilingualism; and the educational and planning implications of linguistic diversity in the British Isles. Among the many dialects and languages surveyed by the volume are British Black English, Celtic languages, Chinese, Indian, European migrant languages, British Sign Language, and Anglo-Romani. Clear and accessible in its approach, it will be welcomed by students in sociolinguistics, English language, and dialectology, as well as anyone interested more generally in language within British society.

Language Contact In The British Isles

by Per Sture Ureland, Language Contact In The British Isles Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Language Contact In The British Isles books, Over the past few decades, the book series Linguistische Arbeiten [Linguistic Studies], comprising over 500 volumes, has made a significant contribution to the development of linguistic theory both in Germany and internationally. The series will continue to deliver new impulses for research and maintain the central insight of linguistics that progress can only be made in acquiring new knowledge about human languages both synchronically and diachronically by closely combining empirical and theoretical analyses. To this end, we invite submission of high-quality linguistic studies from all the central areas of general linguistics and the linguistics of individual languages which address topical questions, discuss new data and advance the development of linguistic theory.

Sociolinguistics

by Ulrich Ammon, Sociolinguistics Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Sociolinguistics books, Since the publication of the first edition of the handbook Sociolinguistics/Soziolinguistik , the then young discipline has changed and developed considerably. The field has left behind its status as an interdiscipline between sociology and linguistics and is now a worldwide established field. Sociolinguistics continues to contribute to solving practical problems in areas such as language planning and standardization, language policy, as well as in language didactics and speech therapy. Moreover, new topics and areas of application have arisen from the autonomy of the discipline - these have been systematically and extensively included in the second edition of the handbook. The new overall concept depicts the regional and disciplinary representativity of sociolinguistic research while offering an encyclopedia-like useablitiy for all its readers. This includes theoretical depth and stringency for readers interested in theory, as well as methodical abundance and detail for empirical researchers. The descriptions of methods are so informative and precise that they can directly be used in the preparation of project planning. Similarly, the descriptions in the practice-oriented articles are so precise that users can accurately assess to what extent they can expect a certain sociolinguistic approach to help solve their problems. With an extensive description as its goal, the second edition of the handbook Sociolinguistics/Soziolinguistik takes into account the current standing of the discipline and the modified structure of the field.

Norn Im Keltischen Kontext

by Christer Lindqvist, Norn Im Keltischen Kontext Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Norn Im Keltischen Kontext books, Auch die Britischen Inseln waren von der wikingerzeitlichen Expansion ab dem 8. Jh. betroffen. Nördlich und westlich des dänischen Danelag in England entstanden norwegische Siedlungen auf den Shetland- und Orkneyinseln, in Nordschottland, auf den Hebriden, an der schottischen und nordenglischen Westküste, um die Irische See herum und südwärts. Waren die Nordleute anfangs als Plünderer und Eroberer unterwegs, wirkten sie bald auch als Händler und Stadt- und Staatengründer. Der daraus resultierende keltisch-westnordische Sprachkontakt hielt ein halbes Jahrtausend an und hinterließ Spuren im Norn, der frühneuzeitlichen nordischen Sprache, die bis ins 18. Jh. auf den Shetland- und Orkneyinseln und in Caithness gesprochen wurde. So finden sich Keltizismen sowohl in den wenigen Aufzeichnungen des Norn als auch im nordischen Substrat der schottischen Gegenwartsmundarten, die das Norn ablösten. The British Isles were among the geographical areas affected by the Viking expansion from the 8th century onwards. North and west of the Danish Danelaw, Norwegian settlements were established on Shetland and Orkney, in Northern Scotland, on the Hebrides, along the west coast of Scotland and Northern England, around the Irish Sea and even further south. Raiders and conquerors at the outset, the Norsemen soon became traders and founded towns and states. The resulting language contact between Celtic and Old West Norse lasted half a millennium and left its mark on Norn, an early modern Nordic language spoken on Shetland, Orkney and in Caithness until the 18th century. Thus, Celticisms can be found both in the few written records of Norn and in the Nordic substratum of those varieties of Modern Scots that came to supplant Norn.
