'The media are ruining English'; 'Some languages are harder than others'; 'Children can't speak or write properly anymore. Such pieces of 'cultural wisdom' are often expressed in newspapers and on radio and television. Rarely is there a response from experts in the fields of language and language development. In this book Laurie Bauer and Peter Trudgill have invited nineteen respected linguists from all over the world to address these 'language myths' -- showing that they vary from the misconceived to the downright wrong. With essays ranging from 'Women Talk Too Much' and 'In the Appalachians They Speak Like Shakespeare' to 'Italian Is Beautiful, German Is Ugly' and 'They Speak Really Bad English Down South and in New York City, ' Language Myths is a collection that is wide-ranging, entertaining, and authoritative.

Classical architecture is a visual 'language' and like any other language has its own grammatical rules. Classical buildings as widely spaced in time as a Roman temple, an Italian Renaissance palace and a Regency house all show an awareness of these rules even if they vary them, break them or poetically contradict them. Sir Christopher Wren described them as the 'Latin' of architecture and the analogy is almost exact. There is the difference, however, that whereas the learning of Latin is a slow and difficult business, the language of classical architecture is relatively simple. It is still, to a great extent, the mode of expression of our urban surroundings, since classical architecture was the common language of the western world till comparatively recent times. Anybody to whom architecture makes a strong appeal has probably already discovered something of its grammar for himself.in this book, the author's purpose is to set out as simply and vividly as possible the exact grammatical workings of this architectural language. He is less concerned with its development in Greece and Rome than with its expansion and use in the centuries since the Renaissance. He explains the vigorous discipline of 'the orders' and the scope of 'rustication'; the dramatic deviations of the Baroque and, in the last chapter, the relationship between the classical tradition and the 'modern' architecture of today. The book is intended for anybody who cares for architecture but more specifically for students beginning a course in the history of architecture, to whom a guide to the classical rules will be an essential companion.

A masterpiece of linguistics scholarship, at once erudite and entertaining, confronts the thorny question of howand whetherculture shapes language and language, cultureLinguistic s has long shied away from claiming any link between a language and the culture of its speakers: too much simplistic (even bigoted) chatter about the romance of Italian and the goose-stepping orderliness of German has made serious thinkers wary of the entire subject. But now, acclaimed linguist Guy Deutscher has dared to reopen the issue. Can culture influence languageand vice versa? Can different languages lead their speakers to different thoughts? Could our experience of the world depend on whether our language has a word for 'blue'? Challenging the consensus that the fundaments of language are hard-wired in our genes and thus universal, Deutscher argues that the answer to all these questions isyes. In thrilling fashion, he takes us from Homer to Darwin, from Yale to the Amazon, from how to name the rainbow to why Russian watera 'she'becomes a 'he' once you dip a tea bag into her, demonstrating that language does in fact reflect culture in ways that are anything but trivial. Audacious, delightful, and field-changing, Through the Language Glass is a classic of intellectual discovery. Less

The primary sources in this volume have been carefully selected and organized to complement the secondary texts in Paula Findlen’s The Italian Renaissance: Essential Readings (Blackwell Publishing, 2002). Key canonical texts, such as Petrarch’s letter on his ascent of Mount Ventoux, are reproduced, but the book also includes lesser known material that has only recently been translated or never before appeared in the English language. All short works are represented in their entirety, while distinct sections are extracted from longer works. Selections address topical issues, such as the family strategies of women, attitudes towards non-Italians, and women as patrons of art. Genres represented include correspondence, poetry, the story, dialogue, oratory, and autobiography. Taken together, the sources in this volume open a window onto the ways that women and men in Renaissance Italy sought to communicate their beliefs, desires, fears, and hopes, both about their own lives and about the dynamic culture they helped to shape.

The first volume ever to systematically investigate and record anti-Italian discrimination in the U.S.A.'Wop! Mick! Spic! Bohunk!... objectively the language of hate; set i out in the open so its full ugliness shows and maybe you'll shame the nation out of meanness'. Life Magazine. Stereotyping, defamation, and caricaturing have been visited on virtually every ethnic group to enter the U.S.A., thereby confirming a paradox in human relations. A nation that rightly boasts of its welcoming record of newcomers from all over the globe also hosts divisive elements that denigrates new arrivals. This clearly has been the case for Italian immigrants and their issue even before the onset of mass immigration in the late nineteenth century. As the largest nationality group among the new immigrants' and as the second largest immigrant group on record, Italians have been subject to some of the most blatant, brutal, and course forms of discrimination to affect any peoples. Although partially known, the full accounts has never been presented in a detailed in-depth and comprehensive recounting of the phenomenon until the publication of this volume (originally in 1973).

Type and Image The Language of Graphic Design Philip B. Meggs What is the essence of graphic design? How do graphic designers solve problems, organize space, and imbue their work with those visual and symbolic qualities that enable it to convey visual and verbal information with expression and clarity? The extraordinary flowering of graphic design in our time, as a potent means for communication and a major component of our visual culture, increases the need for designers, clients, and students to comprehend its nature. In this lively and lavishly illustrated book, the author reveals the very essence of graphic design. The elements that combine to form a design sings, symbols, words, pictures, and supporting formsare analyzed and explained. Graphic designs ability to function as language, and the innovative ways that designers combine words and pictures, are discussed. While all visual arts share common spatial properties, the author demonstrates that graphic space has unique characteristics that are determined by its communicative function. Graphic designs can have visual and symbolic properties which empower them to communicate with deep expression and meaning. The author defines this property as graphic resonance and explains how it occurs. After defining design as a problem-solving process, a model for this process is developed and illustrated by an in-depth analysis of actual case histories. This book will provide insight and inspiration for everyone who is interested or involved in graphic communications. While most materials about form and meaning in design have a European origin, this volume is based on the dynamic and expressive graphic design of America. The reader will find inspiration, hundreds of exciting examples by many of Americas outstanding graphic designers, and keen insights in Type and Image. Less

Programming Languages: Concepts and Constructs, Second Edition retains the 'character' of the original, emphasizing concepts and how they work together. This classic book has been thoroughly revised to provide readable coverage of the major programming paradigms. Dr. Sethi's treatment of the core concepts of imperative programming in languages like Pascal and C flows smoothly into object-oriented programming in C++ and Smalltalk. The charm of functional languages is illustrated by programs in Standard ML and the Scheme dialect of Lisp. Logic programming is introduced using Prolog. Novices, who have been introduced to programming in some language, will learn from this book how related concepts work together while designers and implementers will be exposed to the major programming paradigms.

The new fifth edition of Language Disorders offers a comprehensive discussion of language disorders in terms of clinical practice, emphasizing classroom application and evidence-based practice. The text first presents a foundation of important models and disorders and then asks students to apply new skills to learning assessment and intervention. Language Disorders takes a functional, environmental, and conversational approach, teaching students to use a child's natural environment and conversational partners to their advantage. Unlike other language disorders texts that have a disorder- specific focus, this book takes a more logical traverse from assessment through intervention across disorders, focusing on family- and classroom- centered interventions.   While continuing to build a theoretical background for students and teaching specific techniques for specific language issues, the revised fifth edition is also completely updated with current trends and developments in the field and offers an array of practical ideas and useful suggestions for students and speech-language pathologists. The book provides future speech-language pathologists with concrete guidelines and procedures for the assessment and training of children.   New Features: An expanded chapter on literacy impairments addresses reading and writing as well as the role of the speech-language pathologist in tackling these disorders. A new emphasis on evidence-based practice helps students understand how and why the tactics and methods in assessment and intervention were developed. An even larger variety of language impairments are discussed, including the newest findings and latest research in the field. Concise and comprehensive writing improves text readability and helps students clearly understand every theme, concept and chapter. Robert E. Owens, Jr. , Ph.D. is a professor of speech-language pathology and director of the graduate program in speech pathology at the State University of New York at Geneseo. He is the author of a number of textbooks, book chapters, and articles, including Language Development: An Introduction (Allyn & Bacon, 2007), and the Program for Acquisition of Language with the Severely Impaired (PALS) . He has presented more than 150 professional papers and workshops in both the U.S. and abroad. Less
