Quantitative approaches to linguistic diversity : commemorating the centenary of the birth of Morris Swadesh by Søren Wichmann( )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 932 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quantitative methods in linguistics, which the protean American structuralist linguist Morris Swadesh introduced in the 1950s, have become increasingly popular and have opened the world of languages to interdisciplinary approaches. The papers collected here are the work not only of descriptive and historical linguists, but also statisticians, physicists and computer scientists. They demonstrate the application of quantitative methods to the elucidation of linguistic prehistory on an unprecedented world-wide scale, providing cutting-edge insights into issues of the linguistic correlates of subsistence strategies, rates of birth and extinction of languages, lexical borrowability, the identification of language family homelands, the assessment of genealogical relationships, and the development of new phylogenetic methods appropriate for linguistic data.

"Every language has been influenced in some way by other languages. In many cases, this is reflected in words which have been absorbed from other languages as the names for newer items or ideas, such as perestroika, manga or intifada (from Russian, Japanese and Arabic respectively). In other cases, the influence of other languages goes further, and includes the addition of new sounds, grammatical forms and idioms to the pre-existing language. English's structure has been shaped in such a way by the effects of Norse, French, Latin and Celtic. English is not alone in its openness to these influences. Potentially any features can be transferred from one language to another if the sociolinguistic and structural circumstances are right. New languages -pidgins, creoles and mixed languages- can come into being as the result of language contact. This book examines the various forms of contact-induced linguistic change and the levels of language which have provided instances of these influences. In addition it provides accounts of how language contact has affected some twenty languages, spoken and signed, from all parts of the world. Each chapter is written by experts, in many cases native speakers of the language in question, each with many years of studying and analysing the field. Drawing on the most up-to-date work on relevant language an themes, this book is an invaluable account of the possibilities and products of contact-induced linguistic change"--

Karankawa Linguistic Materials by Anthony P Grant( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents, in a compact and usable form, the body of known material on the diverse dialectical forms of the Karankawa Indians of coastal Texas, who have been extinct since the last of their number perished in the 1850s. John Reed Swanton (1940) published 5 of the 6 main sources in a Karankawa-English vocabulary, but his works omitted the most extensive vocabulary, collected by Rafael Chowell in 1828-29. The material includes a phonetic key, an English-Karankawa vocabulary list of several hundred words and expressions, authentic Karankawa texts and sentences, notes on Karankawa personal names, and an analysis of Joseph H. Greenberg's use of Karankawa in his book "Language in the Americas" (1987). Contains 30 references. (Mdm)
