Traslaci n agresi n y trasgresi n

Author: Juan José Calvo García de Leonardo
Publisher: Universitat de València
ISBN: 9788437099491
Release Date: 2015
Genre: Literary Criticism

La agresión física contra rivales y la cópula por instinto son consubstanciales a la especie. Las prácticas sexuales se regularizarían con el Neolítico, mientras que la actividad bélica tardaría milenios en sujetarse a normas de comportamiento. La presente obra trata de esa guerra, aquí la Primera y la Segunda Guerra Mundial, en la piel de sus peones; y de dos ejemplos de sexualidad heterodoxa y des-aforada: el intercambio abierto de parejas entre matrimonios, que surge por vez primera a mediados del siglo pasado en los Estados Unidos, y el incesto/pederastia paterno-filial, que ha pervivido desde los albores de la civilización occidental como el tabú sexual por excelencia. Lo hace tomando tres extractos de cada una de cuatro novelas norteamericanas del siglo XX, y catalogando y analizando, desde la traductología, sus primeras versiones al español.

L xico vitivin cola tradicional de la D O Toro

Genre: Reference

En la D.O. Toro se ha cul­­tivado la vid y se ha elaborado vino desde, al me­nos, mil años atrás. A lo largo de los siglos, se ha desarrollado en esta región un conjunto de usos y costumbres en tor­no al cultivo de la vid y a la elaboración del vi­no, junto con un len­gua­je es­pe­­cífico para referirse a ellos, que han permanecido vigentes desde la Edad Media hasta mediados del siglo pasado, y que cons­­­tituyen una ver­­dadera cultura. Me he ocupado de esta cultura de la vid y el vino en la D.O. Toro en un estudio etnograficolingüístico titulado precisamente La cultura de la vid y el vino en Toro (en prensa en el momento de redactar estas líneas), del que este Léxico vitivinícola tradicional de la D.O. Toro constituye un complemento. En aquel trabajo describo los usos y costumbres vitivinícolas de la D.O. Toro, y recojo casi 3000 unidades léxicas asociadas a ellos, con sus correspondientes adscripciones geográfico-históricas, pero por razones de carácter práctico, y, en concreto, para no hacer aún más extensa de lo que ya es aquella publicación, no incluyo las documentaciones que justifican la filiación geográfico-histórica establecida para cada unidad. En este Léxico vitivinícola tradicional de la D.O. Toro se presentan aquellas mismas 3000 unidades léxicas, con su significado, localidades de la D.O. Toro en que se usan, así como con sus respectivas adscripciones geográfico-históricas, pero añadiendo, además, las documentaciones en que se basan dichas adscripciones; el propósito es que el lector de la La cultura de la vid y el vino en Toro que quiera profundizar en pormenores filológicos que faltan en esta obra pueda hacerlo en el Léxico vitivinícola tradicional de la D.O. Toro, y también que quien esté interesado únicamente en los aspectos léxicos, pero no en los etnográficos, pueda igualmente acceder a esta información sin tener que considerar contenidos ajenos a su interés.

Colour and colour naming crosslinguistic approaches

Author: João Paulo Silvestre

Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

The Colour and Colour Naming conference, held in 2015 at the University of Lisbon, offered a chance to explore colour naming processes from a cross-linguistic approach. The conference was an initiative of the working group Lexicography And Lexicology from a Pan-European Perspective, itself part of the COST action European Network of Lexicography. The working group investigates the various ways by which vocabularies of European languages can be represented in dictionaries and how existing information from single language dictionaries can be displayed and interlinked to better communicate their common European heritage. The proceedings gather together a selection of studies originally presented at the conference. The first section of the volume outlines a Pan-European perspective of colour names; the second section is devoted to the categorisation and lexicographic description of colour terms.

Todo lo contrario, es un proceso líquido sin forma que fluye y ocupa un lugar; toma la forma de cada organización (pública o privada) y de cada una de las relaciones con los clientes, los empleados o los ciudadanos inundándolas con un nuevo lenguaje, con nuevas voces y conversaciones que antes no se escuchaban.

The Generative Lexicon

Author: James Pustejovsky
Publisher: MIT Press
ISBN: 0262661403
Release Date: 1998-01
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

The Generative Lexicon presents a novel and exciting theory of lexical semantics that addresses the problem of the "multiplicity of word meaning"; that is, how we are able to give an infinite number of senses to words with finite means. The first formally elaborated theory of a generative approach to word meaning, it lays the foundation for an implemented computational treatment of word meaning that connects explicitly to a compositional semantics. In contrast to the static view of word meaning (where each word is characterized by a predetermined number of word senses) that imposes a tremendous bottleneck on the performance capability of any natural language processing system, Pustejovsky proposes that the lexicon becomes an active -- and central -- component in the linguistic description. The essence of his theory is that the lexicon functions generatively, first by providing a rich and expressive vocabulary for characterizing lexical information; then, by developing a framework for manipulating fine-grained distinctions in word descriptions; and finally, by formalizing a set of mechanisms for specialized composition of aspects of such descriptions of words, as they occur in context, extended and novel senses are generated. The subjects covered include semantics of nominals (figure/ground nominals, relational nominals, and other event nominals); the semantics of causation (in particular, how causation is lexicalized in language, including causative/unaccusatives, aspectual predicates, experiencer predicates, and modal causatives); how semantic types constrain syntactic expression (such as the behavior of type shifting and type coercion operations); a formal treatment of event semantics with subevents); and a general treatment of the problem of polysemy.

A Worlde of Wordes

Author: John Florio
Publisher: University of Toronto Press
ISBN: 9781442645806
Release Date: 2013
Genre: Foreign Language Study

A Worlde of Wordes, the first-ever comprehensive Italian-English dictionary, was published in 1598 by John Florio. One of the most prominent linguists and educators in Elizabethan England, Florio was greatly responsible for the spreading of Italian letters and culture throughout educated English society. Especially important was Florio's dictionary, which – thanks to its exuberant wealth of English definitions – made it initially possible for English readers to access Italy's rich Renaissance literary and scientific culture. Award-winning author Hermann W. Haller has prepared the first critical edition of A Worlde of Wordes, which features 46,000 Italian entries – among them dialect forms, erotic terminology, colloquial phrases, and proverbs of the Italian language. Haller reveals Florio as a brilliant English translator and creative writer, as well as a grammarian and language teacher. His helpful critical commentary highlights Florio's love of words and his life-long dedication to promoting Italian language and culture abroad.

Language Ideology Policy and Planning in Peru

Author: Serafín M. Coronel-Molina
Publisher: Multilingual Matters
ISBN: 9781783094264
Release Date: 2015-09-14
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

This book explores the role of language academies in preserving and revitalizing minority or endangered languages. The author studies the controversial High Academy of the Quechua Language (HAQL) in Peru, the efficacy of which has been questioned by some experts. The book delves into the positions, attitudes, ideologies and practices of the HAQL and the role it has played in language policy and planning in the Andean region. The author uses ethnographic fieldwork to support what was previously only anecdotal evidence from individuals viewing the Academy from the outside. This book would appeal to anyone studying the sociolinguistics of the Quechua language, as well as to those studying broader issues of Indigenous language policy and planning, maintenance and revitalization.
