About this title

Synopsis:

Die grosse Bedeutung kontaktsprachlicher Idiome für die Erforschung allgemeiner sprachtheoretischer Zusammenhänge wurde selbst im 20. Jahrhundert lange Zeit unterbewertet. Obwohl in der neueren Sprachbetrachtung eine starke Akzentverlagerung von der Literatursprache auf die Vulgär- und Umgangssprachen zu erkennen ist, wurden Pidginsprachen nicht zuletzt in der europäischen Anglistik bisher recht stiefmütterlich behandelt. In der vorliegenden Studie wird versucht, die linguistische Sonderstellung des melanesischen und chinesischen Pidgin (MPE und CPE), nach sprachlichen Gesichtspunkten gegliedert, aufzuzeigen und die diesen Verkehrsidiomen eigene Problematik darzulegen, wobei stets die Ähnlichkeiten bzw. Unterschiede hinsichtlich des Standardenglischen im Auge behalten wurden.

Store Description

Triple G Books is owned and operated by an emeritus professor of linguistics, who was also an ardent book collector over the period 1954 to 2007. Books for sale range from linguistics, pidgin & creole languages, sociolinguistics, anthropology, education, and comparative religion through modern first editions and German and Scandinavian books. A number of the books are valuable and hard to find, as for example a 1/2-leather-bound first edition of Alfred Russell Wallace's The Malay Archipelago (2 vols.), recently sold for presentation to the Mayor of London on his visit to Malaysia, and a first edition of H. G. Wells' The Time Machine, a novel of the 19th century pointing to a scary future, a continuing revelation to me. Triple G Books stands back of its books in every way.
