Book Excerpt :

Originally published in 1949 and appearing now for the first time in a paperbound edition, Buck's Dictionary remains an indispensable tool for diachronic analysis of the Indo-European languages. Arranged according to the meaning of words, the work contains more than 1,000 groupings of synonyms from the principal Indo-European languages. Buck first tabulates the words describing a particular concept and then discusses their etymological and semantic history, tracing changes in meaning of the root words as well as presenting cases indicating which of the older forms have been replaced by expressions of colloquial or foreign origin.

Book Short Summary:

The Oxford History of Classical Reception in English Literature (OHCREL) is designed to offer a comprehensive investigation of the numerous and diverse ways in which literary texts of the classical world have stimulated responses and refashioning by English writers. Covering the full range of English literature from the early Middle Ages to the present day, OHCREL both synthesizes existing scholarship and presents cutting-edge new research, employing an international team of expert contributors for each of the five volumes. OHCREL endeavours to interrogate, rather than inertly reiterate, conventional assumptions about literary 'periods', the processes of canon-formation, and the relations between literary and non-literary discourse. It conceives of 'reception' as a complex process of dialogic exchange and, rather than offering large cultural generalizations, it engages in close critical analysis of literary texts. It explores in detail the ways in which English writers' engagement with classical literature casts as much light on the classical originals as it does on the English writers' own cultural context. This first volume, and fourth to appear in the series, covers the years c.800-1558, and surveys the reception and transformation of classical literary culture in England from the Anglo-Saxon period up to the Henrician era. Chapters on the classics in the medieval curriculum, the trivium and quadrivium, medieval libraries, and medieval mythography provide context for medieval reception. The reception of specific classical authors and traditions is represented in chapters on Virgil, Ovid, Lucan, Statius, the matter of Troy, Boethius, moral philosophy, historiography, biblical epics, English learning in the twelfth century, and the role of antiquity in medieval alliterative poetry. The medieval section includes coverage of Chaucer, Gower, and Lydgate, while the part of the volume dedicated to the later period explores early English humanism, humanist education, and libraries in the Henrician era, and includes chapters that focus on the classicism of Skelton, Douglas, Wyatt, and Surrey.

Book Short Summary:

This corpus-based study examines the use of support verb constructions in Old English and Old Irish. It determines in how far these constructions can be seen as a means to offer semantic specification of existing verbal expressions. The study further investigates whether support verb constructions may be employed to create periphrastic verbal expressions to denote concepts for which no simple verb exists in the language at that stage. This latter situation may particularly arise as a consequence of contact with new cultural concepts. The approach of the study is both qualitative and quantitative. It compares the use of the Old English constructions to corresponding Old Irish structures as well as to other language varieties, especially Present Day English, which has a considerably more analytic morphological structure than either of the two medieval languages.

Book Short Summary:

Les voyages relatés dans le présent volume sont en effet fortement associés aux dimensions visuelle et scripturale en ce qu'ils se fondent sur, engendrent ou passent par l'écriture et/ou la figuration, que ce soit simultanément ou consécutivement : le voyage vers des contrées mystérieuses et déroutantes de Marco Polo, dans l'hypermonde, une campagne militaire..., le voyage formateur..., celui entrepris pour raisons pratiques ou intellectuelles..., pour s'adonner à une nostalgie improbable ..., au rêve d' une communauté idéale..., ou pour se confronter à l'étrangeté du lieu visité.En considérant les échanges variés et serrés entre les deux modes d'expression, le rapport texte/image apparaît dans la perspective du voyage comme la métaphore de l'expérience même du voyage au sens profond du terme.Cet aspect (trans)formateur du voyage est donc au coeur du présent recueil (...) Comme dans la vie de ces voyageurs, un réseau nouveau, invisible se crée sous l'effet du déplacement entre la lettre et la forme, entre ce qui était au départ inaccessible, ignoré ou impensable et le connu ou convenu...Il ne reste plus qu' à souhaiter qu'en voyageant d'un texte à l'autre, d'une illustration à l'autre, d'une ambiance historique et imaginaire à l'autre, le lecteur saisisse, lui aussi, l'occasion de circuler entre les diverses configurations du dialogue visuel/scriptural... (et) entre l'histoire, l'histoire de la littérature, de l'art, la littérature comparée et l'esthétique graphique.

Book Short Summary:

The study of early drama has undergone a quiet revolution in the last four decades, radically altering critical approaches to form, genre, and canon. Drawing on disciplines from art history to musicology and reception studies, The Routledge Research Companion to Early Drama and Performance reconsiders early "drama" as a mixed mode entertainment best studied not only alongside non-dramatic texts, but also other modes of performance. From performance before the playhouse to the afterlife of medieval drama in the contemporary avant-garde, this stunning collection of essays is divided into four sections: Northern European Playing before the Playhouse; Modes of Production and Reception; Reviewing the Anglophone Tradition; The Long Middle Ages Offering a much needed reassessment of what is generally understood as "English medieval drama", The Routledge Research Companion to Early Drama and Performance provides an invaluable resource for both students and scholars of medieval studies.

  • Pdf File: etymologisches-wörterbuch-des-althochdeutschen-band-5.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Band V des »Etymologischen Wörterbuchs des Althochdeutschen« enthält die Artikelstrecken I, J, K und L. Dieser Band legt für zahlreiche althochdeutsche Wörter, die nicht bis in die Gegenwartssprache fortleben, erstmals eine fundierte Etymologie vor. Aber auch für bis ins Neuhochdeutsche fortgesetzte Wörter, deren Herkunft in den vorhandenen Werken zur Etymologie des Deutschen als »unklar« oder »unsicher« bezeichnet wird, schlägt er plausible Lösungen vor. Außerdem bietet das Wörterbuch eine solide Grundlage für detaillierte Untersuchungen zum althochdeutschen Lehnwortschatz. Aufgrund seiner Anlage ist es auch für Untersuchungen zum Wortschatz anderer altgermanischer und indogermanischer Sprachen, für die bislang keine ausführlichen oder nur veraltete Herkunftswörterbücher zur Verfügung stehen, unentbehrlich. Da Methoden der modernen Indogermanistik und Germanistik Anwendung finden, stellt das Wörterbuch die germanistische und indogermanistische Wortforschung auf eine sichere Basis und erweist sich als ein Arbeitsmittel, das auch für andere sprachwissenschaftliche Disziplinen wie Dialektologie, Wortfeldforschung, Semantikforschung gewinnbringend eingesetzt werden kann.

Book Short Summary:

В книге исследуется история славян того периода, когда они составляли этническое и языковое единство. Труд охватывает значительный промежуток времени – от I тыс. до н.э., когда славяне, выйдя из древнеевропейской общности, начали самостоятельный путь развития, до раннего средневековья включительно, когда славянское единство в условиях широкого расселения и метисации с иными народами распалось, стали формироваться отдельные славянские этносы и языки. В изучении проблемы происхождения и ранней истории славян автор делает упор на междисциплинарный подход, канву же изложения образуют материалы археологии и истории.

Book Short Summary:

In der bisherigen Forschung ist wiederholt die Frage aufgeworfen worden, ob die Paradiesgefilde des Ódáinsakr und der Glæsisvellir der mittelalterlichen isländischen Mythologie auf keltische Einflüsse zurückgehen, und wie genau diese Einflüsse zu fassen und sozial und historisch einzuordnen sind. Um diese Fragen zu beantworten, arbeitet das Buch die nordischen Zeugnisse vollständig auf; neben literarischen werden dabei auch folkloristische Quellen und archäologische Befunde berücksichtigt. Nach der Analyse dieses Materials wendet sich die Studie dem keltischen Vergleichsmaterial zu: der arthurischen Literatur, der irischen Literatur und antiken keltischen Zeugnissen. Die vergleichende Analyse dieses breit gestreuten Materials zeigt, dass der Ódáinsakr/Glæsisvellir-Komplex in der Tat von keltischen Überlieferungen nicht zu trennen ist. Die unmittelbare Quelle für die zugrundeliegenden Einflüsse ist dabei wohl nicht in der arthurischen Literatur oder gar der keltischen Antike, sondern in der volkssprachlichen Überlieferung des wikingerzeitlichen Irland zu suchen. Von dort scheint der Motivkomplex während der Landnahmezeit nach Island gelangt zu sein.

Book Short Summary:

Während der keltische Wortschatz in der Gallia Transalpina bereits mehrfach in sprachhistorischen Arbeiten beleuchtet wurde, ist den keltischen Appellativa in der Cisalpina nicht die gleiche Aufmerksamkeit gewidmet worden. Die vorliegende Arbeit sammelt nach einer kurzen Erörterung der vermuteten Substrate in (cis)alpinen Regionen zunächst alle in der Fachliteratur verzeichneten westromanischen Wörter, die mutmaßlich keltischen Ursprungs sind, und unterzieht diese einer kritischen etymologischen Diskussion unter Berücksichtigung eines Katalogs aus fünf Kriterien; dabei wird die Wichtigkeit der semantischen Perspektive hervorgehoben. Es wird zwischen genuin keltischen und diakeltischen sowie in loco tradierten und gewanderten Reliktwörtern unterschieden. Aus der Studie wird mit den Mitteln der Dialektometrie ersichtlich, daß es innerhalb der Cisalpina zum einen ein deutliches West-Ost-Gefälle der Verbreitung keltischer Reliktwörter gibt (das sich mit den archäologischen, historischen und toponomastischen Ergebnissen deckt), zum anderen ein weniger deutliches Nord-Süd-Gefälle. Dabei erstaunt, daß das Etikett "agallicitàacelticità" lexikalisch eher auf das Emilianische und das Romagnolische zutrifft als auf die Idiome des Veneto und Graubündens. Für die Klassifikation romanischer Mundarten auf der Basis der Substrate müssen die rätoromanischen Idiome sicher zusammen mit den oberitalienischen Dialekten als eine Einheit betrachtet werden.

Book Short Summary:

“Gamkrelidze and Ivanov’s wide-ranging and interdisciplinary work, superbly translated from Russian, is a must for every student of Indo-European prehistory. Its erudition is unsurpassed, and its unorthodox conclusions are a continuing challenge.” Prof. Dr. Martin Haspelmath, Max-Planck-Institut für Evolutionäre Anthropologie The authors propose a revision of views on a number of central issues of Indo-European studies. Based on findings of typology, they suggest a new analysis of the phonological system of Proto-Indo-European (the ‘Glottalic Theory’); they offer novel assumptions about the relative chronology of changes in PIE vowels and laryngeals. Their conclusions are compared with data from Proto-Kartvelian. In the second part of the book, semantically organized presentation of material from the lexicon is combined with analyses of the use of forms and formulae in a broadly defined cultural context. Again similarities with properties of primarily Kartvelian and Semitic are described , and extended close contacts with these language families are postulated. This necessarily leads to a proposal to place the hypothetical Urheimat of the Indo-Europeans in the region south of the Caucasus. Volume and II of the original Russian edition have been combined in the English version as Part I; the Bibliography and Indexes are published as Part II.

Book Short Summary:

This book brings together new and original work by forty two of the world's leading scholars of Indo-European comparative philology and linguistics from around the world. It shows the breadth and the continuing liveliness of enquiry in an area which over the last century and a half has opened many unique windows on the civilizations of the ancient world. The volume is a tribute to Anna Morpurgo Davies to mark her retirement as the Diebold Professor of Comparative Philology at the University of Oxford.

Book Short Summary:

Epigraphy, or the study of inscriptions, is critical for anyone seeking to understand the Roman world, whether they regard themselves as literary scholars, historians, archaeologists, anthropologists, religious scholars or work in a field that touches on the Roman world from c. 500 BCE to 500 CE and beyond. The Oxford Handbook of Roman Epigraphy is the fullest collection of scholarship on the study and history of Latin epigraphy produced to date. Rather that just a collection of inscriptions, however, this volume seeks to show why inscriptions matter and demonstrate to classicists and ancient historians how to work with the sources. To that end, the 35 chapters, written by senior and rising scholars in Roman history, classics, and epigraphy, cover everything from typograph to the importance of inscriptions for understanding many aspects of Roman culture, from Roman public life, to slavery, to the roles and lives of women, to the military, and to life in the provinces. Students and scholars alike will find the Handbook a crritical tool for expanding their knowledge of the Roman world.

Book Short Summary:

First written down in the eighth century AD, these early Irish stories depict a far older world - part myth, part legend and part history. Rich with magic and achingly beautiful, they speak of a land of heroic battles, intense love and warrior ideals, in which the otherworld is explored and men mingle freely with the gods. From the vivid adventures of the great Celtic hero Cu Chulaind, to the stunning 'Exile of the Sons of Uisliu' - a tale of treachery, honour and romance - these are masterpieces of passion and vitality, and form the foundation for the Irish literary tradition: a mythic legacy that was a powerful influence on the work of Yeats, Synge and Joyce.

Book Short Summary:

Old Irish is the language of Ireland in the period from the 8th to the 10th century AD, and is the oldest Celtic language well enough attested for adequate grammatical study. The book provides the only available detailed linguistic analysis of the syntactic structure of the Old Irish sentence. The basic form of the simple sentence, with the usual order of elements, verb-subject-object, is unproblematic from a synchronic viewpoint, but certain sentence types show more complex patterns of syntax, which have important implications for the typological, diachronic and comparative-historical analysis of Old Irish in particular, and Celtic and Indo-European languages in general. Sentence types which contain obligatory cataphoric pronouns referring to elements later in the same sentence are examined in detail, as well as constructions with marked initial topics, and the focussing construction of the cleft sentence. The approach is functional and typological, on the basis of a text corpus from the glosses on the Pauline epistles at Würzburg, with further material from Old Irish legal texts. The emphasis is on the communicative content and intent of the sentences of the corpus. The book is a newly edited version of MacCoisdealbha's Bochum dissertation of 1974, previously unpublished due to the author's death in 1976, and includes textual notes by the editor indicating progress, and indeed lack of progress, in the meantime, in areas covered by the book.
