The everyday language of white racism by Jane H Hill( Book )

26 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Everyday Language of White Racism, Jane H. Hill explores the myth that White racism is fading in the western world. Instead she reveals it to be a pervasive and highly adaptive cultural system, one that has endured in various forms for hundreds of years. Hill's incisive analysis of everyday talk and text shows how language that purports to be anti-racist is framed almost entirely by a folk theory of racism, one that continues to contain overt and covert racist discourses, slurs, and epithets. This prominent linguist offers a penetrating summary of critical theories of racism and introduces the concept of "linguistic appropriation," as a new theoretical dimension to the study of language contact and linguistic borrowing. Hill draws on her internationally acclaimed work on "Mock Spanish," and delves into two important new case studies of public debates around racist slurs, providing a fresh and incisive analysis of the relationship between language, race, and culture."--Jacket
The persistence of language : constructing and confronting the past and present in the voices of Jane H. Hill by Jane H Hill( )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In honor of Professor Hill's courageous stand against mock Spanish in a state, Arizona, that has been taking anti-Latino nativism to new extremes, this selection examines Official English laws in light of the Southwest's hidden history of Latino lynching. It posits that suppression of Spanish severs the connection of citizens, especially ones of Mexican descent, with the past. Not only do these laws contribute to cultural ignorance, they leave young Latinos and Latinas without defenses against hateful stereotypes - in effect, a second form of lynching

A grammar of Cupeño by Jane H Hill( Book )

In one of the most thorough studies ever prepared of a California language, Hill's grammar reviews the phonology, morphology, syntax and discourse features of Cupeño, a Uto-Aztecan (takic) language of California. Cupeño exhibits many unusual typological features, including split ergativity, that require linguists to revise our understanding of the development of the Uto-Aztecan family of languages in historical and areal perspective

Ethnographic contributions to the study of endangered languages( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is a feature of the twenty-first century that world languages are displacing local languages at an alarming rate, transforming social rela-tions and complicating cultural transmission in the process. This language shift--the gradual abandonment of minority languages in favor of national or international languages--is often in response to inequalities in power, signaling a pressure to conform to the political and economic structures represented by the newly dominant languages. In its most extreme form, language shift can result in language death and thus the permanent loss of traditional knowledge and lifeways. To combat this, indigenous and scholarly communities around the world have undertaken various efforts, from archiving and lexicography to the creation of educational and cultural programs. What works in one community, however, may not work in another. Indeed, while the causes of language endangerment may be familiar, the responses to it depend on "highly specific local conditions and opportunities." In keeping with this premise, the editors of this volume insist that to understand language endangerment, "researchers and communities must come to understand what is happening to the speakers, not just what is happening to the language." The eleven case studies assembled here strive to fill a gap in the study of endangered languages by providing much-needed sociohistorical and ethnographic context and thus connecting specific language phenomena to larger national and international issues. --- Book Description

Languages on the land : toward an anthropological dialectology by Jane H Hill( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theories of human migration have been invoked to account for the difference between large-scale spread of languages and linguistic elements, as opposed to small-scale local, residual distributions. The field of dialectology understands linguistic elements as distributed across human populations, with migration as only one possible mechanism of such distributions. Anthropological dialectology, grounded in the material circumstances of human populations, can offer an alternative to migration theories. The inherent variability of languages yields tokens that speakers can deploy to make claims on resources, and differentiate localist from distributed sociolinguistic stances toward this variability. People with secure primary claims on essential resources are more likely to favor localist stances, while people who lack adequate primary claims and draw instead on a diverse range of secondary or indirect claims are more likely to favor distributed stances. Distributed stances encourage the spread of sociolinguistic variables, while localist stances inhibit spread. The stances and their effects on distribution of language variation are illustrated by a study of two dialects of the Tohono O Odham (Papago) language. Contains 31 references. (Author)
