The linguistic typology of templates
Good, Jeff, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
1. Defining template -- 2. A typological description language for templates -- 3. Typologizing templates: case studies -- 4. Typologizing templates: comparison -- 5. Moving forward.

"This book represents the first comprehensive examination of templatic constructions- namely, linguistic structures involving unexpected linear stipulation - in both morphology and syntax from a typological perspective. It provides a state-of-the-art overview of the previous literature, develops a new typology for categorizing templatic constructions across grammatical domains, and examines their cross-linguistic variation by employing cutting-edge computational methods. It will be of interest to descriptive linguists seeking to gain a better sense of the diversity of the world's templatic constructions, theoretical linguists developing restrictive models of possible templates, and typologists interested in the attested range of patterns of linear stipulation and the application of new kinds of multivariate methods to cross-linguistic data. The new typological framework is illustrated in detail via a number of case studies involving languages of Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Americas, and numerous other templatic constructions are also considered over the course of the book"--

Ka ngaro te reo : Māori language under siege in the nineteenth century
Moon, Paul, author
Dunedin, New Zealand : Otago University Press, 2016
'He taonga tuku iho ngā tūpuna' 1800 -- 'A strange medley': end of eighteenth century to 1814 -- 'E mate ana mātou i te pukapuka kore': 1815 to mid 1830s -- 'A mere language of tradition': mid 1830s to c. 1850 -- 'Forge a way forward': 1850s to 1860s -- Ngā At̄ete: 1870s to 1890s -- Te reo Māori in 1899.

"In 1800, te reo Māori was the only language spoken in New Zealand. By 1899, it was on the verge of disappearing altogether. In "Ka ngaro te reo", Paul Moon traces the spiralling decline of the language during an era of prolonged colonisation that saw political, economic, cultural and linguistic power shifting steadily into the hands of the European core. In this revelatory and hard-hitting account, Moon draws on a vast range of published and archival material, as well as oral histories and contemporary Māori accounts, to chart the tortuous journey of a language under seige in a relentless European campaign to "save the Māori Race". He also chronicles the growing committment among many Māori towards the end of the nineteenth century to ensure that the language would survive"--Back cover.

Roland Barthes : biographie
Samoyault, Tiphaine
Paris : Seuil, [2015]
"Figure centrale de la pensée de son temps, Roland Barthes (1915-1980) était aussi un être à la marge. Un père mort à la Première Guerre, l'amour inaltérable d'une mère, de longues années passées en sanatorium, la découverte précoce de son homosexualité lui donnent très tôt le sentiment de sa différence. Il a vécu à distance les grands événements de l'histoire contemporaine. Pourtant sa vie est prise dans le mouvement précipité, violent et intense de ce siècle qu'il a contribué à rendre intelligible. Fondée sur un matériau inédit jamais exploré jusqu'ici (archives, journaux, agendas), cette biographie de Barthes éclaire d'un jour nouveau ses engagements, ses refus, ses désirs. Elle détaille la quantité des objets dont il a parlé, les auteurs qu'il a défendus, les mythes qu'il a épinglés, les polémiques qui ont fait sa célébrité, l'écoute des langages de son temps. Et sa puissance d'anticipation: si on aime tant le lire encore, c'est qu'il a exploré des territoires originaux et qui sont aujourd'hui les nôtres. Le récit de sa vie donne de la substance et de la cohérence à la trajectoire de Barthes, conduite par le désir, la perspicacité et une extrême sensibilité à la matière du monde. À quoi on peut ajouter une forte réticence à tout discours d'autorité. En faisant reposer la pensée sur le fantasme, il a fait d'elle à la fois un art et une aventure. Entrer dans sa vie, approcher la forme de son existence aident à comprendre comment il fut écrivain et comment il fit de la littérature la vie même."--Page 4 of cover.

Responses to language endangerment : in honor of Mickey Noonan : new directions in language documentation and language revitalization
edited by Elena Mihas, Bernard Perley, Gabriel Rei-Doval, Kathleen Wheatley, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
Amsterdam ; John Benjamins Publishing Company, [2013]
The world's languages in crisis : a 20-year update / Gary F. Simons & M. Paul Lewis -- What can revitalization work teach us about documentation? / Marianne Mithun -- Unanswered questions in language documentation and revitalization : new directions for research and action / Lenore A. Grenoble -- Training as empowering social action : an ethical response to language endangerment / Carol Genetti & Rebekka Siemens -- How to avoid pitfalls in documenting endangered languages / Sarah G. Thomason -- Converb and aspect-marking polysemy in Nar / Kristine Hildebrandt -- Grammatical relations in Mixe and Chimariko : differences and similarities / Carmen Jany -- Having a shinshii/shishii 'master' around makes you speak Japanese! : inadvertent contextualization in gathering Ikema data / Toshihide Nakayama & Tsuyoshi Ono -- Internal and external calls to immigrant language promotion : evaluating the research approach in two cases of community-engaged linguistic research in Eastern North Carolina / Ricard Viñas-De-Puig -- Code-switching in an Erzya-Russian bilingual variety : an 'endangered' transitory phase in a contact situation / Boglárka Janurik -- Colonialism, nationalism and language vitality in Azerbaijan / John M. Clifton -- Revitalizing languages through place-based language curriculum : identity through learning / Joana Jansen, Roger Jacob & Janne Underriner -- Remembering ancestral voices : emergent vitalities and the future of indigenous languages / Bernard Perley.

This volume further complicates and advances the contemporary perspective on language endangerment by examining the outcomes of the most commonly cited responses to language endangerment, i.e. language documentation, language revitalization, and training. The present collection takes stock of many complex and pressing issues, such as the assessment of the degree of language endangerment, the contribution of linguistic scholarship to language revitalization programs, the creation of successful language reclamation programs, the emergence of languages that arise as a result of revitalization efforts after interrupted transmission, the ethics of fieldwork, and the training of field linguists and language educators. The volume's case studies provide detailed personal accounts of fieldworkers and language activists who are grappling with issues of language documentation and revitalization in the concrete physical and socio-cultural settings of native speaker communities in different regions of the world.
