  • Portuguese Missionary Grammars in Asia, Africa, and Brazil,
           1550–1800 by Otto Zwartjes
    • Abstract: <p>By Mauricio J. Mixco</p> Otto Zwartjes views this monograph, in part, as a necessary corrective to scholarly neglect that has left the surviving pioneering missionary grammars of non-European languages to languish in obscurity. In particular, he notes a dismissive attitude toward the idea that these grammars might have a role to play in the historiography of European linguistic scholarship and pedagogy as these came to grapple with language structures hitherto entirely beyond their ken.As a consequence of the Age of Discovery, traditional European philology encountered new worlds of language, particularly through religious proselytizing in far-flung regions. Catholic missionaries whose linguistic formation was limited to contemporary and ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • A Reference Grammar of Kotiria (Wanano) by Kristine Stenzel
    • Abstract: <p>By Wilson Silva</p> Kotiria, also known as Wanano, is an endangered Eastern Tukanoan language spoken in the northwestern region of the Amazon basin in Brazil and Colombia. Kristine Stenzel has carried out research on Kotiria since 2000. This book, a revised and extended version of her doctoral dissertation (Stenzel 2004), is the first comprehensive descriptive grammar of a Tukanoan language. The description and analysis are based on both elicited and naturally occurring discourse collected by the author; materials from Nathan and Carolyn Waltz, linguists affiliated with the Summer Institute of Linguistics who worked with the Kotiria for over thirty years, are also drawn on for comparison (p. 8). Stenzel follows a ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • The Languages of the Amazon by Alexandra Aikhenvald
    • Abstract: <p>By Patience Epps</p> The Amazon basin is one of the most linguistically diverse regions of the world, home to dozens of distinct language families and isolates, many of which exhibit cross-linguistically unusual characteristics. Until just a few decades ago, so little was known about these languages that the region was described as a “linguistic black box” (Grinevald 1998:127), and Amazonia represented a significant gap in our understanding of global typological patterns. However, in recent years the trickle of scientific contributions focused on these languages has grown to a steady flow of high-quality grammars, dictionaries, and documentary corpora–and none too soon, given the ever accelerating rate of language loss in the ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Lillooet Bird Names
    • Abstract: <p>By Henry Davis, Jan van Eijk</p> Fieldwork on Lillooet as carried out by the authors over a number of years has yielded a substantial number of names for birds that occur in traditional Lillooet (St’át’imc) territory in British Columbia, Canada. In this article, we present an annotated list of all the names we have collected, including information on their morphology and etymology, as well as discussion of ecological and cultural aspects of the Lillooet avifauna. The article is organized as follows: the rest of this section contains background information on the Lillooet language and its dialects; section 2 contains an ecological sketch of Lillooet territory, by way of an introduction to the birds and their habitats; section 3 contains the ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Grammar, Dialectal Variation, and Honorific Registers in Nahuatl in
           Seventeenth-Century Guatemala
    • Abstract: <p>By Sergio F. Romero</p> Honorific address is one of the most appropriate sites to investigate the relationship between grammar and culture. Honorific registers are “systems of linguistic signs linked by their users to stereotypes of honor or respect” (Agha 2002:21). They involve culturally accepted models of linguistic behavior consisting of gesture and demeanor norms as well as a linguistic repertoire, that is, a stereotyped set of concatenated content and function words. The linguistic expression of rank, authority, and deference in languages with honorific registers conjoins intricate syntactic and morphological patterns, on the one hand, and cultural values and social hierarchy, on the other. What distinguishes honorific registers ... <a href="">Read More</a>

  • Language in the Constitution of Kinship
    • Abstract: <p>By Ian Keen</p> Kinship has been an “essentially contested concept” (Gaille 1955–56:167) in cultural and social anthropology. Not only has the topic moved away from center stage since the 1970s, but there has been a shift from analyses in terms of seemingly universal types of institution toward a focus on “practice” (Carsten 2000:2). Doubt has been cast on the validity of classifying types of society in terms of kinship (as in “matrilineal societies”), on the cultural salience of kinship as a category, and on its utility in crosscultural translation (e.g., Schneider 1984; Needham 1971). Connections resulting in enduring relations have been found to be far more diverse than “biological” relations (Godelier 2011; Sahlins 2012). Not ... <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>
