The English language in the Renaissance was in many ways a collection of competing Englishes. Paula Blank investigates the representation of alternative vernaculars - the dialects of early modern English - in both linguistic and literary works of the period. Blank argues that Renaissance authors such as Spenser, Shakespeare and Jonson helped to construct the idea of a national language, variously known as 'true' English or 'pure' English or the 'King's English', by distinguishing its dialects - and sometimes by creating those dialects themselves. Broken English reveals how the Renaissance 'invention' of dialect forged modern alliances of language and cultural authority. This book will be of interest to scholars and students of Renaissance studies and Renaissance English literature. It will also make fascinating reading for anyone with an interest in the history of English language.

Book 2 of the Amish-Country Mysteries, Broken English compulsively explores a fascinating culture set purposely apart. In the wooded Amish hill country, a professor at a small college, a local pastor, and the county sheriff are the only ones among the mainstream, or "English," who possess the instincts and skills to work the cases that impact all county residents, no matter their code of conduct or religious creed. David Hawkins came to the quiet town of Millersburg to escape his demons and unexpectedly found salvation in Amish life-until his English daughter is brutally murdered.

DBC Pierre's second novel charts the unlikely meeting between East and West that follows Ludmila Derev's appearance on a Russian brides website. Determined to save her family from starvation in the face of marauding Gnez troops, Ludmila's journey into the world and womanhood is an odyssey of sour wit, even sourer vodka, and a Soviet tractor probably running on goat's piss. Thousands of miles to the West, the Heath twins are separated after 33 years conjoined at the abdomen. Released for the first time from an institution rumoured to have been founded for an illegitimate child of Charles II, they are suddenly plunged into a round-the-clock world churning with opportunity, rowdy with the chatter of freedom, democracy, self-empowerment and sex. A wild and raucous picaresque dripping with flavours of British bacon and nasty Russian vodka, Ludmila's Broken English is a tale of tango-ing twins on a journey into the unknown. A ride so outrageously improbable it just may happen, DBC Pierre's second novel confirms his place in the ranks of today's most original storytellers.

"When I call poetry a form of partiality," writes Heather McHugh, "I mean its economies operate by powers of intimation: glimmering and glints, rather than exhaustible sums. It is a broken language from the beginning, brimming with non-words: all that white welled up to keep the line from surrendering to the margin; all that quiet, to keep the musics marked." In Broken English, McHugh applies her poetic sensibility and formidable critical insight to topics ranging from the poetry of Valery and Rilke to ancient Greek drama and Yoruba folk songs, offering intense, passionate, highly personal readings that are informed and unified by her concern for the relationships among language, culture, and poetry.

Der kurze Sommer der Liebe und Rebellion: Sebastian, Leander und Rieke proben den Aufstand Berlin, im Sommer 2005: Gerhard Schröder hat die Vertrauensfrage gestellt und damit vorgezogene Neuwahlen erzwungen. In den Parks ist das Grillen verboten, und dann geht das Ordnungsamt auch noch gegen Alkoholkonsum in der Öffentlichkeit vor. Das ist zu viel, beschließt eine Gruppe junger Studenten und begehrt auf.Sie alle stecken mitten im Studium, jenseits der Euphorie des Anfangs und noch vor dem Einsetzen der Examenspanik. Hausarbeiten sind ein lästiges Übel, der Stundenplan aber angenehm löchrig, und jetzt sind sowieso Semesterferien. So trifft man sich im Park, am See oder auf Partys – und immer geht es auch um Politik. Besonders Sebastian verfolgt die Parlamentsdebatten, Pressekonferenzen und Diskussionen im Fernsehen, regt sich auf über Heuchelei und Machtpoker, findet aber eigentlich sein Verhältnis mit Rieke viel aufregender.Als die Idee eines Blogs aufkommt, mit dem man eine Gegenposition artikulieren könnte, ist Sebastian noch Feuer und Flamme. Schon mit der Titelfindung geht es aber nicht richtig voran, und währenddessen schmiedet Leander viel radikalere Pläne. Als Rieke plötzlich in ihrer Handtasche eine Pistole mitbringt, die einst Andreas Baader gehört haben soll, eskaliert die Situation. Nur ein Fanal scheint geeignet, die nötige Aufmerksamkeit zu erregen. Und da er auch noch mit Luzie etwas angefangen hat, muss Sebastian dringend eine Entscheidung treffen ...Thilo Bock liefert das schillernde Porträt einer Generation jenseits von Ideologien und Utopien. Die Unzufriedenheit mit den Verhältnissen ist groß, die Angst um die eigene Zukunft noch größer, und ansprechende Alternativen sind eher Mangelware. Trotzdem gibt es eine Bereitschaft zur Radikalisierung, die selbst vor dem Äußersten nicht zurückzuschrecken scheint. Mit großem Gespür für Befindlichkeiten und Sprechweisen erzählt Thilo Bock von Freiheit, Sehnsucht und Verantwortung.

This first volume of Holm's major survey of pidgins and creoles provides an up-to-date and readable introduction to a field of study that has become established only in the past few decades. Written for both students and general readers with a basic knowledge of linguistics, the book's original perspective will also attract specialists in the field seeking a broad overview of the linguistic relationships among these languages. Creolized, or restructured versions of English, French, Spanish, Dutch, Portugese, and other languages arose during European colonial expansion. These resulted in such creoles as Jamaican, Haitian, Papiamentu, and some one hundred others, as well as such semi-creoles as Afrikaans, non-standard Brazilian Portugese, Papiamentu, and American Black English. Scholars have tended to work on particular language varieties in relative isolation, making comparative research into the genesis, development, and structure of creoles difficult. In writing this book, Holm draws on broad studies of many languages to make clear how far-reaching creoles'similarities are and to challenge current linguistic theories on creoles and pidgins. The emphasis of this volume is largely empirical rather than descriptive. Its core is a comparative study of creoles based on European languages in Africa and the Caribbean that demonstrates the striking similarities among the languages in terms of their lexical semantics, phonology, and syntax. A forthcoming volume provides a socio-historic overview of variety development and text examples, with translations, of the restructured languages.

-<I>Broken English-: The Creole Language of Carriacou is the first attempt to document - from a linguistic and anthropological perspective - the variety of Creole English spoken on the island, Carriacou. It is a small island in the Eastern Caribbean between Grenada and St. Vincent, which has long been of interest to anthropologists and musicologists due to its relative isolation and the richness of its African-American cultural traditions. This book contains an extensive ecology of the language, which is followed by a sketch of its major grammatical features. Also included are transcriptions of recorded natural language texts, as well as a lexicon. The focus throughout this work is on the language in its social and cultural context, with the goal that readers will come away with a sense of the richness of Carriacou's language and culture."
