Language And Society In South Asia

by Michael C. Shapiro, Language And Society In South Asia Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Language And Society In South Asia books, During the past two decades there has been a significant amount of research and publication concerning the sociolinguistics of South Asian languages. Language and Society in South Asia is the first major attempt to assess the impact of this new literature. It exposits the methodological and theoretical assumptions of sociolinguistic descriptions of south Asian languages, and contrasts them with the assumptions of earlier characterizations of these languages. An important feature of this book is its detailed examination of numerous schools of linguistic analysis within which most past descriptive work on South Asian languages has been carried out. This is done in language accessible both to the professional linguist and to non-linguists interested in social aspects of language use in South Asia. Among the topics treated in this book are traditional taxonomies of South Asian languages, South Asia as a linguistic area, social dialectology, bi- and multilingualism in South Asia, pidginization, creolization, and South Asian English, ethnographic semantics, and the ethnography of speaking. The work also contains an extensive bibliography of the scholarly literature pertinent to the study of South Asian languages in their social contexts.

Genetic Linguistic And Archaeological Perspectives On Human Diversity In Southeast Asia

by Li Jin, Genetic Linguistic And Archaeological Perspectives On Human Diversity In Southeast Asia Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Genetic Linguistic And Archaeological Perspectives On Human Diversity In Southeast Asia books, Southeast Asia is regarded as one of the birthplaces of modern humans. Recent genetic evidence shows that it was probably the entry point of modern humans from Africa into East Asia and Oceania. With the help of new markers X mostly from the Y-chromosome and mtDNA X several recent efforts have been made to study the populations of Southeast Asia, which have been somewhat neglected in the past. A new picture of the origin and migrations of modern humans in this region is quickly emerging. In this book, the leading researchers in the studies of Southeast Asian, East Asian, and Oceanian populations present the most up-to-date results of their research. Contents: Prehistory of Human Populations: Archaelogical, Linguistic and Paleontological Perspectives: Prehistory, Language and Human Biology: Is There a Consensus in East and Southeast Asia? (C F W Higham); Human Diversity and Language Diversity (W S-Y Wang); Before the Neolithic: HunterBGatherer Societies in Central Thailand (R Thosarat); The Peopling of Southeast Asia: The Case for an African Rather Than an Asian Origin of the Human Y-Chromosome YAP Insertion (P A Underhill & C C Roseman); Genetic History of Ethnic Populations in Southwestern China (B Su et al.); Y-Chromosomal Variation in Uxorilocal and Patrilocal Populations in Thailand (M Srikummool et al.); Genetic Relationships Among 16 Ethnic Groups from Malaysia and Southeast Asia (S G Tan); The Peopling of East Asia: Chinese Human Genome Diversity Project: A Synopsis (J Chu); Origins and Prehistoric Migrations of Modern Humans in East Asia (B Su & L Jin); The Peopling of Oceania: The Genetic Trail from Southeast Asia to the Pacific (R Deka et al.); The Colonization of Remote Oceania and the Drowning of Sundaland (J K Lum).
