Meine geliebte Welt

Author: Sonia Sotomayor
Publisher: C.H.Beck
ISBN: 9783406659485
Release Date: 2014-07-30
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Aufgewachsen in der Bronx, Puertoricanerin, die Kindheit prekär, der Vater Alkoholiker, die Mutter überfordert – Sonia Sotomayor war es nicht gerade in die Wiege gelegt, eines Tages Richterin am höchsten Gericht der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika zu werden. Mit einem großen Herzen und viel Humor erzählt diese Ausnahmefrau von ihrem Weg, aber nicht um sich dabei auf die Schulter zu klopfen, sondern um anderen Menschen mit ihrer eigenen Geschichte Mut zu machen. Ein hinreißendes, ansteckendes Buch über das Trotzdem und über die – wirklich wichtigen – Dinge des Lebens. „’Nach der Lektüre werden mich die Leser nach menschlichen Kriterien beurteilen’, schreibt Sonia Sotomayor. Wir, die wir in diesem Fall die Jury sind, finden sie einfach unwiderstehlich.“ Washingtonian „Überwältigende und stark geschriebene Memoiren zum Thema Identität und Persönlichkeitsfindung ... Offenherzig, scharf beobachtet und vor allem tief empfunden.“ The New York Times „Eine Frau, die weiß, wo sie herkommt und die die Kraft hat, uns dorthin mitzunehmen.“ The New York Times Book Review

Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781134691418
Release Date: 2014-09-19
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

This book provides a comprehensive overview of Hispanic applied linguistics, allowing students to understand the field from a variety of perspectives and offering insight into the ever-growing number of professional opportunies afforded to Spanish language program graduates. The goal of this book is to re-contextualize the notion of applied linguistics as simply the application of theoretical linguistic concepts to practical settings and to consider it as its own field that addresses language-based issues and problems in a real-world context. The book is organized into five parts: 1) perspectives on learning Spanish 2) issues and environments in Spanish teaching 3) Spanish in the professions 4) the discourses of Spanish and 5) social and political contexts for Spanish. The book’s all-inclusive coverage gives students the theoretical and sociocultural context for study in Hispanic applied linguistics while offering practical information on its application in the professional sector.

Language Ideologies and the Globalization of Standard Spanish

Author: Darren Paffey
Publisher: A&C Black
ISBN: 9781441110978
Release Date: 2012-09-06
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

This book examines how language ideologies are manifested in newspaper media. Using the Spanish press as a case study it considers how media discourse both from and about the Real Academia Española constitutes a set of 'language ideological debates' in which the institution represents a vision of what the Spanish language is and what it should be like. Paffey adopts a Critical Discourse Analysis approach to a large corpus of texts from Spain's best-selling daily newspapers, El País and ABC. More generally, the book sheds light on how institutions produce and maintain visions of 'standard language' in the contemporary context. A global language, such as Spanish, is by nature more widely used outside of the nation state in question than in it. The book covers recent research on language ideologies, standardization and CDA and considers the application of these to three core discursive themes: language unity and a concept of a 'panhispanic' speech community; the RAE's construction of its authority; and institutional ideologies and management of language on a global scale.

Don Quijote

Author: Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
Publisher: BoD – Books on Demand
ISBN: 9783734782695
Release Date: 2015-04-07
Genre: Fiction

Don Quijote ist die allgemeinsprachliche Bezeichnung für den Roman "El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quixote de la Mancha" von Miguel de Cervantes, übersetzt "Der sinnreiche Junker Don Quijote von der Mancha", und gleichzeitig der Name des Protagonisten. Der erste Teil wurde 1605, der zweite 1615 veröffentlicht. Beide Romane erschienen in spanischer Sprache. Die erste deutsche Übersetzung wurde 1621 von Pahsch Basteln von der Sohle angefertigt. Sie erschien jedoch erst 1648 und umfasste nur die ersten 23 Kapitel. Die 1799–1801 herausgegebene Übersetzung von Ludwig Tieck ist wohl bis heute die bekannteste deutsche Übersetzung, und die 50 Jahre später von Ludwig Braunfels gefertigte galt lange als die sprachtreueste und kenntnisreichste. 2008 erschien das Werk in einer von Susanne Lange neu übersetzten, zweibändigen deutschen Fassung, welche von der Literaturkritik hoch gelobt wurde und deren sprachliche Dimension im Deutschen mit derjenigen des Originals verglichen wurde. 2002 wählten – organisiert vom Osloer Nobelinstitut – 100 bekannte Schriftsteller Don Quijote zum „besten Buch der Welt“.

Hispanic New York

Author: Claudio Iván Remeseira
Publisher: Columbia University Press
ISBN: 9780231519779
Release Date: 2010-06-11
Genre: Social Science

Over the past few decades, a wave of immigration has turned New York into a microcosm of the Americas and enhanced its role as the crossroads of the English- and Spanish-speaking worlds. Yet far from being an alien group within a "mainstream" and supposedly pure "Anglo" America, people referred to as Hispanics or Latinos have been part and parcel of New York since the beginning of the city's history. They represent what Walt Whitman once celebrated as "the Spanish element of our nationality." Hispanic New York is the first anthology to offer a comprehensive view of this multifaceted heritage. Combining familiar materials with other selections that are either out of print or not easily accessible, Claudio Iván Remeseira makes a compelling case for New York as a paradigm of the country's Latinoization. His anthology mixes primary sources with scholarly and journalistic essays on history, demography, racial and ethnic studies, music, art history, literature, linguistics, and religion, and the authors range from historical figures, such as José Martí, Bernardo Vega, or Whitman himself, to contemporary writers, such as Paul Berman, Ed Morales, Virginia Sánchez Korrol, Roberto Suro, and Ana Celia Zentella. This unique volume treats the reader to both the New York and the American experience, as reflected and transformed by its Hispanic and Latino components.
