9782503507705: Spoken and Written Language: Relations Between Latin and the Vernacular Languages in the Earlier Middle Ages (Utrecht Studies in Medieval Literacy)

The linguistic situation of the Medieval West has sometimes been characterized as one of diglossia: one learned language was used for religion, law and documents - Latin, the father tongue - while the various vernaculars would have been the mother tongue. In Romance-speaking areas, however, the relevance of the term diglossia has been contested, and the date of the divergence between written or spoken Latin and Romance is a subject of energetic debate. How can one characterize the interaction between Latin and the various vernaculars? Between the various vernaculars and one another? To what extent could speakers from separate linguistic worlds communicate? These questions are fundamental for anyone concerned with almost any aspect of communication, the transmission of learning, literary history, and cultural interaction in the Middle Ages.To approach the question in its broadest context, one must consider many categories of evidence: glossaries, colloquies, glossed texts and vernacular translations, grammars, and anecdotes in narrative sources about the study of foreign languages. The background to the relationship between Latin and the vernaculars in the early medieval West is the choice of Latin as the language of the Western Roman Empire and the Roman Church. A choice which entailed the possibility of a shared literary culture and heritage across Europe, but which also had consequences for access to that heritage. This volume contains contributions by historians, cultural historians and students of texts, language, and linguistics, addressing these questions from their various perspectives. It hopes to overcome familiar disciplinary divisions.

Book Description Brepols N.V., Belgium, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: French,German,English . Brand New Book. The linguistic situation of medieval Europe has sometimes been characterized as one of diglossia: one learned language, Latin, was used for religion, law, and documents, while the various vernaculars were used in other linguistic registers. Informing the relationship between Latin and the vernaculars was the choice of Latin as the language of the Western Roman Empire and the Roman Church. This choice entailed the possibility of a shared literary culture and heritage across Europe, but also had consequences for access to that heritage. Scholarship on the Romance languages has contested the relevance of the term diglossia, and the divergence between written or spoken Latin and Romance is a subject of energetic debate. In other linguistic areas, too, questions have been voiced. How can one characterize the interaction between Latin and the various vernaculars, and between the various vernaculars themselves? To what extent could speakers from separate linguistic worlds communicate? These questions are fundamental for anyone concerned with communication, the transmission of learning, literary history, and cultural interaction in the Middle Ages. This volume contains contributions by historians, cultural historians, and students of texts, language, and linguistics, addressing the subject from their various perspectives but at the same time trying to overcome familiar disciplinary divisions.
