Marriage in the Eighteenth Century English Novel

By Sarup Singh

Manohar Publishers & Distributors, 1995. Hardcover. New. During the Restoration the Institution of Marriage in England was greatly devalued, and Women were the greatest sufferers. The eighteenth century novelists discussed in this book, make an attempt to redress the Balance so that marriage could again become viable. In the opening essay, The Author examines Reflections Upon Marriage by Mary Astell which reflects eighteenth century thinking on the subject at its best. The novelists discussed in this book, including Defoe whose women have to wage a hard struggle for sheer Physical survival, emphasize the importance of a stable relationship. The heroines of Richardson and Fanny Burney also uphold the same values. Almost all of Jane Austen’s heroines achieve companionate marriages and though in her Juvenile work we have examples of women who, in panic, accept any kind of marriage, broadly speaking, in her mature work, the marriages of her heroines are based on ‘mutual esteem and steadfast companionship.’ Printed Pages: 238.

Multilingual Education Works: From the Periphery to the Centre

By K. Heugh & Tove Skutnabb-Kangas (eds)

Orient BlackSwan Pvt. Ltd., 2009. Softcover. New. 15 x 24 cm. For the last century or more, Western and Northern models of education have dominated countries of the South/South-East. These have seldom borne fruit in Africa, South America, South and South-East Asia because linguistic diversity and indigenous or organically developed educational practices have been largely overlooked. Such models have not met the needs of linguistically diverse communities on the margins. This volume responds to that challenge. It demonstrates successful practices in multilingual education, responsive to local conditions and with community participation, in low-income countries, even within limited budgetary investment. The examples in this volume foreground the systematic use of the mother tongue/local language, alongside an international language of wider communication and possibly a third language with regional or national significance. The case studies identify what works, as well as the risks and vulnerabilities. The West and North have much to learn from the practices presented and what the research contributes towards current theories in linguistics and education. Printed Pages: 376. NA

By Rajendra Singh

Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd., 1998. 5th or later edition. Hardcover. New. 15 x 23 cm. This book raises some important questions about formal linguistics and functionalist sociolinguistics when they encompass the same subject matter, linguistic borrowing and code-switching/mixing. These questions arise in the context of formalist and functionalist accounts of language contact and are tested here against some interesting Hindustani-English contact facts from India. The test reveals what these paradigms contribute to our understanding of language contact (and language in general) and precisely where they seem to go wrong. Printed Pages: 157.

Semantics (Second Edition)

By F.R. Palmer

Cambridge University Press, 1990. 2nd edition. Softcover. New. When the first edition of Semantics appeared in 1976, the developments in this aspect of language study were exciting interest not only among linguists, but among philosophers, psychologists and logicians. Professor Palmer`s straightforward and comprehensive book was immediately welcomed as one of the best introductions to the subject. Interest in Semantics has been further stimulated recently by a number of significant, and often contriversial, theoretical advances; and the publication of this second edition has enabled Professor Palmer to bring his survey thoroughly up to date. There is also an important new chapter on `Semantics and logic`, showing clearly and simply the influence that logical models have had on the study of meaning. Professor Palmer always illustrates his argument with helpful examples, and his non-technical explanations will be readily intelligible to the interested layman as well as to beginning students of language and linguistics.

A Sanskrit Reader: Text And Vocabulary And Notes

By Charles Rockwell Lanman

Cosmo Publications, 2004. First edition. Hardcover. New. The results of comparative philology are now so generally in corporated into our modern classical grammars, lexicons, and text/books, that even a slight knowledge of Sanskrit, if it be accurate so far as it goes, is of great service to the classical teacher in making his instruction interesting and effective. As independent disciplines, moreover, Sanskrit and comparative philology, and the literatures and religions of India, are constantly gaining in importance. The design of this work is twofold. In the first place, it is to serve as an introduction to these subjects for the students of our colleges and universities. What the beginner needs is an elementary work comprehending both text and vocabulary in a single volume. And accordingly the reader is meant to furnish ample material for about fifty weeks reading, in a course of three hours a week, and, with the text, the appropriate lexical apparatus. This Reader is designed, in the second place, to render a knowledge of Sanskrit accessible to the classical teaches of high schools, academies, and colleges. These teachers, if they pursue this study at all, usually do so without the aid of an instructor. And it is especially the requirements of unaided private study that the author has taken constant pains to meet. Printed Pages: 425.
