An Anthology of French and Francophone Singers from A to Z

Author: Michaël Abecassis
Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
ISBN: 9781527512054
Release Date: 2018-06-11
Genre: Music

Every musical form has had an impact on the linguistic practices of our society. French song is a vector of cultural, social, and stylistic values. Throughout the world, songs in the French language are used in the teaching of French: professors incorporate songs into the curriculum in order to illustrate differences of register and linguistic variation, as well as to raise lexical or grammatical questions. As a form of popular expression, song is a genre that has, in recent years, become the focus of serious academic scholarship and criticism. However, few linguists have paid attention to French song and its linguistic uses. This richly illustrated mini-dictionary about French singers fills this gap by offering a collection of portraits of the greatest singers of the French language and how they have constructed the musical landscape in both France and the larger francophone community and the world as a whole. Through (re)discovering these classic and contemporary artists who contribute to the creation of the sonorous universe of the 20th and 21st centuries, the volume determines how these musical genres influence the French language and nourish our collective imagination. By plunging into francophone song, one can achieve a better understanding of the culture and the language of its speakers.

Cheerful with Insufficient Reason

Author: John Norrington-Davies
Publisher: Lulu.com
ISBN: 9781446635728
Release Date: 2010-10
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Within this book lies the story of a London-Welsh Grammar Schoolboy who attended the Edmonton County School in North London between 1938 and 1943. Devoted to extra-mural activities he became practised in the art of damage limitation when required by the teaching staff to account for his manifold shortcomings. There was no irrelevance too great that was not pursued with vigour in preference to that of academic attainment. Bombed and strafed by the enemy a fertile imagination turned to deeds of derring-do yet to come; heroic deeds to be engaged upon, varying over time, according to the film of the week. The schoolboy analyst examines, in relation to those times, family, war, education, religion, agriculture and personalities; even sex is touched upon, but tastefully!
