  • The Linguistic Expression of Quality in Tongan: Evidence for Radiality

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In previous work, I have investigated various other semantic domains, or ontological primes, in Tongan, such as space, time, possession, and kinship and other social relationships, arguing that a cultural model I call radiality (Bennardo 2009) is a fundamental element of Tongan cognition. In the present article, I turn to the domain of quality—specifically, quality of things (or Objects, by which I mean anything that exists, whether concrete or abstract), rather than of events and situations. The methodology of the investigation reflects my view that linguistic behavior instantiates cognitive preferences. As I adopt Cultural Model Theory as a program for the investigation of culture (Bennardo 2018), these ... Read More

  • Urban Pidgin and Bedouin L2 in the Hijaz: A Depidginization Continuum'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: It is well known that Saudi Arabia hosts many immigrant workers, most of them coming from South and Southeast Asia. The lack of a common language has led to the emergence of a pidgin language, a reduced linguistic system spoken by these laborers during daily interaction with Arabic speakers, and with other laborers who come from different linguistic backgrounds. It is worth noting that pidgins constitute part of the Arabic linguistic tradition; other examples include Sudanic and Romanian Arabic pidgins and creoles (Tosco 1995:423; Avram 2010; Owens 2014).A number of studies concentrate on what is known in the literature as Gulf Pidgin Arabic (GPA). One of the earliest studies, by J. R. Smart (1990), provides a ... Read More

  • The Language Warrior's Manifesto: How to Keep Our Languages Alive No
           Matter the Odds by Anton Treuer (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: "Language loss is self-perpetuating. All that's necessary for most languages to die is for us to do too little or nothing" (p. 44), writes Anton Treuer, in what is perhaps his most personal book to date. Equal parts motivational self-help guide for language workers and gripping narrative of his own language-learning journey to reclaim Ojibwe, the title of Treuer's monograph is well-chosen. The book does exactly what it says it will do on the cover.Lucid and refreshingly free of footnotes and jargon, Treuer opens the book by situating language as integral to all aspects of culture and well-being. The first chapter answers many of the implicit and prejudiced questions that continue to be asked about the value of ... Read More

  • Denominal Verbs in Algonquian: Verbs of Acquiring

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Mathieu (2013) proposes that several types of denominal verbs found widely in languages of the Algonquian family are derived by a syntactic process of incorporation.1 The stems of these verbs consist of a denominal base plus a verbalizing suffix. Mathieu suggests that the suffix is itself a verb in abstract syntactic structure, while the base is syntactically a noun that serves as a complement to this verb. Incorporation creates the stem by combining the two into a single complex. I argue that a syntactic analysis of this kind faces a number of empirical difficulties and that the verbs in question are better analyzed as ordinary derived words, formed in the lexicon by processes of derivational morphology, not ...

  • Participial Ordinal Numbers in Menominee

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Menominee, an Algonquian language of Wisconsin, is one of the better documented Native languages of North America, due in large part to the extraordinary work of Leonard Bloomfield (e.g., 1928, 1962, 1975). One gap in his documentation, however, was ordinal numbers, for which he gave only the two forms in (1a) and (1b).(1a) nqtam 'first'(1b) s–nianan 'fifth' (cf. nianan 'five')Speakers with whom I have worked knew the word for 'first' but were unfamiliar with 'fifth', so it was not possible to recover a full set through elicitation.A somewhat earlier attestation of ordinal formation in Menominee is found in Hoffman's 1896 vocabulary, which has the following entry: "äs [s], placed before the cardinal numbers it ...
