  • Writing in the Air: Heterogeneity and the Persistence of Oral Tradition in
           Andean Literatures by Antonio Cornejo Polar
    • Abstract: <p>By John Holmes McDowell</p> Writing in the Air is a translation of the original Spanish work, Escribir en el aire: Ensayo sobre la heterogeneidad socio-cultural en las literaturas andinas, first published in 1994 in Lima, Peru, near the end of the life of its distinguished author, Antonio Cornejo Polar (1936–1997), an influential literary critic who developed a successful academic career in his native Peru and taught as a visiting professor at the University of Pittsburgh, University of California, Berkeley, and elsewhere. Duke University Press has now published this outstanding translation by Lynda J. Jentsch, with a foreword by Jean Franco, professor emerita at Columbia University. It is worth stressing at the outset that the translator ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Languages of Urban Africa ed. by Fiona McLaughlin
    • Abstract: <p>By Jeffrey Heath</p> This is an interesting collection of papers on linguistic dynamics in African capital cities. The authors are Africans and veteran Africanists who know their local turf and its history well. Many complement this experiential and historical knowledge with surveys and interviews about language use. Most of the writing is simple and to the point, with little stylistic clutter. West Africa from Dakar to Kinshasa is especially well represented. Sabine Kube-Barth, “The Multiple Facets of the Urban Language Form, Nouchi” (pp. 103–14), is the only paper on a new urban youth language. Eyamba G. Bokamba’s chapter, “The Spread of Lingala as a Lingua Franca in the Congo Basin” (pp. 50–85), is a fascinating history ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Geographical Typology and Linguistic Areas, with Special Reference to
           Africa ed. by Osamu Hieda, Christa König, Hirosi Nakagawa
    • Abstract: <p>By Jeffrey Heath</p> This is a collaboration between a Japanese university and a collection of western linguists, brought together for a 2009 conference in Tokyo. It has the feel of an actual conference, complete with a blessing from the university president and a presentation of the university’s Center for Corpus-Based Linguistics. The chapters are broadly united by a language-contact focus, ranging from specific language pairs to broad areal linguistics. About two-thirds of the volume deals with grammatical effects of contact. The authors appreciate that native and foreign structures interact in a complex way, only occasionally resulting in perfect calques (isomorphism). Alexandra Aikhenvald’s pro-grammatic “Areal ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Secret Manipulations: Language and Context in Africa by Anne Storch
    • Abstract: <p>By Jeffrey Heath</p> This book is an extended rant against culturally unsophisticated African descriptive and especially historical linguistics. Like all rants it is often incoherent and tiresome, and your reviewer wished at times that he were reading something relaxing, like Finnegan’s Wake or Mardi. But some of the points it makes are important. To oversimplify, Anne Storch argues that “manipulated” forms and speech registers, i.e., those attributable to conscious creative processes, are widespread in African languages, and that over time they can and do infect the everyday language. The input to manipulation may be internal to the language, as in speech disguise registers, or external (borrowed). In the opening paragraph ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • If You Go Down to the Soak Today: Symbolism and Structure in an Arandic
           Children’s Story
    • Abstract: <p>By Jennifer Green, Myfany Turpin</p> Verbal art practices of indigenous Australia have often been described (Clunies Ross, Donaldson, and Wild 1987; T. Strehlow 1971; von Brandenstein and Thomas 1974; Stubington 1978; Donaldson 1979; Dixon and Koch 1996; Marett 2005; Klapproth 2004). Yet within this literature, Aboriginal children’s songs, which also involve the full complement of expressive devices—speech, song, graphic designs, and other performative actions—have received far less attention. While several references to these can be found (Moyle 1973; Kartomi 1973, 1980, 1981; Turpin 2003; Cook and Green 2007), for some areas of central Australia it is claimed there are no recognized children’s song repertoires at all (see Wild 1987:115; Moyle 1979 ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Five Versions of a Dyirbal Legend
    • Abstract: <p>By R. M. W. Dixon</p> Five versions of the legend of “Two Brothers and the Origin of Death” in the Dyirbal language of northeast Australia were recorded from three old speakers—each from a different dialect group—between 1946 and 1989. (The language had been in decline since the 1930s. When I commenced fieldwork in 1963 there were perhaps one hundred fully fluent speakers; the last of these died in 2011.) By integrating the individual tellings, it has been possible to constitute the story in some detail. Each version is, to some extent, partial. An action that appears unmotivated in one account is provided with full justification in another, and so on. The variability relates to a number of factors. One is the attitude of the ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Comments on a Review of Michel Launey’s An Introduction to
           Classical Nahuatl
    • Abstract: <p>By Jonathan D. Amith</p> It may be unusual for a third party to comment on a book review. But Michael McCafferty’s review of Michel Launey’s An Introduction to Classical Nahuatl (2011), which recently appeared in Anthropological Linguistics (2012), is unfortunate in tone and highly problematic in content, doing a great disservice not only to the book in question but also to readers who look to reviews to guide them and to Nahuatl scholarship in general. The comments below attempt to provide a more balanced picture.The 2011 work is the English translation of an introductory grammar of Classical Nahuatl written by Michel Launey in French and published in 1979, nine years before he completed his monumental 1,609-page thèse d’état on the ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Ideophones in Japhug (Rgyalrong)
    • Abstract: <p>By Guillaume Jacques</p> Of all areas of grammar, the study of ideophones is perhaps the one where an integrative approach taking into account phonology, prosody, morphosyntax, discourse usage, and even extralinguistic factors such as iconic gesture (Dingemanse 2011b) is most relevant. From the point of view of grammar writing, ideophones present a challenge in all subdomains of language description. They often fill gaps in phonotactics and display distinctive prosody. They may exhibit distinctive morphology and occur in highly unusual morphological or syntactic constructions. Their semantics displays extremely subtle and intricate nuances that are difficult to translate appropriately.Rgyalrong languages,1 a group of Sino-Tibetan ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Borrowing in Southern Great Lakes Algonquian and the History of Potawatomi
    • Abstract: <p>By David J. Costa</p> Little has been published on borrowing among Algonquian languages. Several publications and presentations have noted the extensive borrowing that has occurred between Ojibwe and Cree (see, e.g., Goddard 1994b: 195—98), though no systematic description of this borrowing has yet appeared in print. Moreover, it is generally known among specialists that Attikamek and Menominee have borrowed from Ojibwe, that Menominee and, especially, Potawatomi have borrowed from Sauk-Fox-Kickapoo, that Penobscot has borrowed extensively from Passamaquoddy, and that Maliseet-Passamaquoddy has in turn borrowed from Micmac. However, even less has been published about these relationships than about the borrowing between Ojibwe and ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Across the Great Divide: How Birth-Order Terms Scaled the Saruwaged
           Mountains in Papua New Guinea
    • Abstract: <p>By Hannah Sarvasy</p> Most Nungon dialects, spoken in the Uruwa language area on the northern slopes of the Saruwaged Mountains in Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea (see map 1), are typical of languages on the northern side of the Finisterre-Saruwaged ranges in having no systems of birth-order terms.1 In Nungon dialects without birth-order terms, children’s birth order may be only described using adjectives such as osuk ‘first’ and misuatno and mitango ‘last’. But in a single dialect of Nungon, that of Kotet village and its satellite hamlets, a robust system with twelve birth-order terms is not only a concise way to describe birth order, but represents the preferred mode of address. A speaker of another Nungon dialect entering Kotet ... <a href="">Read More</a>
