3. Bondo [2017]

Book
111 pages ; 22 cm
Bondo is Menna Elfyn's latest collection in Welsh and English. Her title means eaves in Welsh, referring to poems about getting close to language as sanctuary. Other poems were written episodically over a number of years. These meditative poems began simply as a personal engagement with the grief of Aberfan, expressing solidarity with a nation's wound. Bondo is also the voice which echoes the role of the Welsh bard as remembrancer. Menna Elfyn is the best-known, most travelled and most translated of all Welsh-language poets. The extraordinary international range of her subjects, breathtaking inventiveness and generosity of vision place her among Europe's leading poets. Like her previous Bloodaxe titles, Bondo is a bilingual Welsh-English edition. Again, the facing English translations are by leading Welsh poets, in this case Elin ap Hywel, Gillian Clarke, Damian Walford Davies and Robert Minhinnick. It is her first new book since Perfect Blemish: New & Selected Poems / Perffaith Nam: Dau Ddetholiad & Cherddi Newydd 1995-2007 and the later collection Murmur (2012), a Poetry Book Society Recommended Translation.

"Au Bourg de Batz (Batz-sur-mer), dernier bastion brittophone de la presqu'île guérandaise, le breton s'est éteint vers les années 1970, ce qui n'est pas si vieux. Un des derniers brittophones, Jean-Marie Cavalin, a pu être enregistré en 1959. Partant des travaux d'Emile Ernault, François Cadic, Pierre Le Roux, Gildas Buron, Paulin Benoît, etc., l'auteur nous offre l'ouvrage le plus complet édité à ce jour sur le breton parlé de ce territoire de Loire-Atlantique. Non seulement il a fait une synthèse de tout ce qui avait été écrit sur le sujet, mais il l'a considérablement augmenté en fouillant les archives de Nantes, de Rennes et de Loire-Atlantique. On trouvera dans cet ouvrage une étude historique et linguistique sur le breton guérandais, un dictionnaire, de la grammaire et de la syntaxe, une étude sur la prononciation et comparaison avec le breton vannetais et même une recherche sur les quelques traces de ce breton que le gallo "mitaw" (région de Guéméné-Penfao) a conservé jusqu'à nos jours."--Page 4 of cover.

`Some part of me believed I would become a more complete person if I spoke Irish, more in tune with my roots, my identity, my very being.' `I was one of the 1.8 million people who claimed to speak Irish ... but like most of that cohort I was faking it.' `I was about to turn 50 ... The future had arrived. My idea of personal ambition had shifted ... The Irish language, normally meandering around the edges of my consciousness, suddenly demanded my full attention.' This is the story of Michael McCaughan's journey around Ireland and the Irish language. From a surreal start involving dedicated listening to Raidio na Gaeltachta's death notices, to rediscovering the soul of the language through immersing himself in Phil Lynott's music - all without becoming a Gaelbore - Coming Home will make you want to follow in his footsteps and strike out in search of the gra. `A hugely enjoyable linguistic travelogue that is also a sort of love story: full of passion, lightness, but, also, commitment. McCaughan's engaging prose is a joy to read. Discover the Sex Pistols' connection with Cuil Aodha and many another startling fact about the Irish language. This journey towards a homecoming will touch many hearts.' Joseph O'Connor.

The Mabinogi, a classic of Welsh literature, is a suite of four stories in Middle Welsh. They were composed, or at least put into their current form-it is hard to say which, because we do not know who the author was-in the late eleventh or early twelfth century, and they survive in two fourteenth-century manuscripts and two thirteenth-century fragments. Set in a primal past, the Mabinogi bridges many genres; it is part pre-Christian myth, part fairytale, part guide to how nobles should act, and part dramatization of political and social issues.First translated in parts by William Owen Pughe (d. 1835), the Four Branches of the Mabinogi did not become widely available in English until the mid nineteenth century, with Lady Charlotte Guest's translation of "the Mabinogion." (The word mabinogion, a plural form that occurs only once in the manuscripts, has been repurposed to refer collectively to the Mabinogi and seven other prose tales.) This new translation is by a Celtic Studies scholar working with a contemporary American playwright; its primary purpose is to make the text accessible and engaging for twenty-first-century readers (and especially, undergraduate students).One significant way in which that philosophy is expressed is in the treatment of Welsh names. For example, the protagonist of the First Branch is named Pwyll, Prince of Dyfed. The University of Wales dictionary, Geiriadur Prifysgol Cymru, lists the following possible meanings for pwyll: "deliberation, consideration, care, caution; discretion, prudence, wisdom, patience, understanding, intelligence, perception, judgment, mind, wit(s), reason, (common) sense, sanity." It is one of the hardest names in the text for North Americans to pronounce, since it contains the notoriously difficult voiceless lateral ll. Calling the character Prince Sage, as this translation does, is a way of addressing both issues. (In general, transparently meaningful names have been rendered in English; all other names have been left in modernized Welsh spelling, with a note on pronunciation when they first occur.)The editor has also included a number of background materials that help place the Mabinogi in the context of medieval Welsh history and culture.

Popular opinion has long assumed that learning a foreign language requires not only traditional classroom instruction but also immersion among native speakers of the language. This opinion is so strongly held that students who study through immersion are believed to become more proficient than those who do not. Study Abroad Contexts for Enhanced Foreign Language Learning is a critical scholarly publication that explores the importance and efficacy of international travel in the learning of a second or additional language. Including various topics such as auditory-orthographic training, grammatical ability, and learner autonomy, this book is geared toward academicians, students, and professionals seeking current and relevant research on language acquisition through immersion and its value.

What is the relationship between phonetics and phonology? Are phonological features innate and universal, and do they have fixed phonetic correlates? These questions have recently received renewed prominence in theoretical debates, and this book explores them from a modular, substance-free perspective. This in-depth analysis of Breton serves not only to introduce previously underused data into the theoretical landscape but also to demonstrate the viability of a modular framework for phonology. The book introduces a minimalist system of phonological representations built up on a language-specific basis, without regard to the phonetic realisation of phonological objects, and integrates it with a fully-fledged computational framework and a stratal interface between phonology and morphosyntax, showcasing the numerous empirical and conceptual advantages of a substance free view of phonology.

Irish-language theatre has at times been on the fringes of Ireland's cultural landscape - invisible and underground - but its influence can be seen all over the island of Ireland. An Underground Theatre is the first full-length study of playwrights working in the Irish language in the pivotal 1930-80 period. In this landmark volume Philip O'Leary analyses the works of Mairead Ni Ghrada, Seamus O Neill, Eoghan O Tuairisc, Sean O Tuama, and Criostoir O Floinn and discusses the production history of their plays and the critical reception of first productions and major revivals. O'Leary also outlines the beginnings of drama in Irish in the early twentieth century and provides important historical context. The developments in Irish-language theatre since 1980 are also discussed in this important contribution to Irish theatre studies. Using a wide range of sources, O'Leary gives a thorough evaluation of five of the most significant Irish-language playwrights and charts the monumental influence and reach of their work.

A pioneering work for the study of Welsh phonology and related typological implications. The authors resolve long-discussed contradictory assumptions and also convincingly decline claims of vowel contrast.
