The Cam­bridge Hand­book of Romance Lin­guis­tics
BuchcoverThe Romance lan­guages and dialects con­sti­tute a trea­sure trove of lin­guis­tic data of pro­found inter­est and sig­nif­i­cance. Data from the Romance lan­guages have con­tributed exten­sive­ly to our cur­rent empir­i­cal and the­o­ret­i­cal under­stand­ing of pho­net­ics, phonol­o­gy, mor­phol­o­gy, syn­tax, seman­tics, prag­mat­ics, soci­olin­guis­tics, and his­tor­i­cal lin­guis­tics. Writ­ten by a team of world-renowned schol­ars, this Hand­book explores what we can learn about lin­guis­tics from the study of Romance lan­guages, and how the body of com­par­a­tive and his­tor­i­cal data tak­en from them can be applied to lin­guis­tic study. It also offers insights into the diatopic and diachron­ic vari­a­tion exhib­it­ed by the Romance fam­i­ly of lan­guages, of a kind unpar­al­leled for any oth­er West­ern lan­guages. By ask­ing what Romance lan­guages can do for lin­guis­tics, this Hand­book is essen­tial read­ing for all lin­guists inter­est­ed in the insights that a knowl­edge of the Romance evi­dence can pro­vide for gen­er­al issues in lin­guis­tic the­o­ry.

Lit­er­ary slum­ming: slang and class in nine­teenth-cen­tu­ry France
BuchcoverLit­er­ary Slum­ming: Slang and Class in Nine­teenth-Cen­tu­ry France applies a soci­olin­guis­tic approach to the rep­re­sen­ta­tion of slang in French lit­er­a­ture and dic­tio­nar­ies to reveal the ways in which upper-class writ­ers, lex­i­cog­ra­phers, lit­er­ary crit­ics, and bour­geois read­ers par­tic­i­pat­ed in a soci­olin­guis­tic con­cept the author refers to as “lit­er­ary slum­ming”, or the appro­pri­a­tion of low­er-class and crim­i­nal lan­guage and cul­ture. Through an analy­sis of spo­ken and embod­ied man­i­fes­ta­tions of the anti-lan­guage of slang in the works of Eugène François Vidocq, Hon­oré de Balzac, Eugène Sue, Vic­tor Hugo, the Goncourt Broth­ers, and Émile Zola, Lit­er­ary Slum­ming argues that the nine­teenth-cen­tu­ry French lit­er­ary dis­course on slang led to the emer­gence of this soci­olin­guis­tic phe­nom­e­non that pri­or­i­tized low­er-class and crim­i­nal life and cul­ture in a way that ulti­mate­ly expand­ed class bound­aries and increased vis­i­bil­i­ty and agency for minori­ties with­in the pub­lic sphere.
