The Theologia Indorum by Dominican friar Domingo de Vico was the first Christian theology written in the Americas. Made available in English translation for the first time, Americas' First Theologies presents a selection of exemplary sections from the Theologia Indorum that illustrate Friar Vico's doctrine of god, cosmogony, moral anthropology, understanding of natural law and biblical history, and constructive engagement with pre-Hispanic Maya religion. Rather than merely condemn the Maya religion, Vico appropriated local terms and images from Maya mythology and rituals that he thought could convey Christianity. His attempt at translating, if not reconfiguring, Christianity for a Maya readership required his mastery of not only numerous Mayan languages but also the highly poetic ceremonial rhetoric of many indigenous Mesoamerican peoples. This book also includes translations of two other pastoral texts and parts of a songbook and a catechism. These texts, written in Highland Mayan languages by fellow Dominicans, demonstrate the wider influence of Vico's ethnographic approach shared by a particular school of Dominicans. Altogether, The Americas' First Theologies provides a rich documentary case example of the translation, reception, and reaction to Christian thought in the indigenous Americas.

"A pedagogical rather than reference grammar, the book is a thorough presentation of the basics of the K'ichee'-Maya language organized around graded grammatical lessons accompanied by drills and exercises. K'ichee'an languages occupy a prominent place among indigenous languages of the Americas, both in speakers and historical significance"--Provided by publisher.

Although thousands of people in Alberta and Montana speak Blackfoot, an Algonquian language, their numbers are diminishing and the survival of Blackfoot is in danger. Blackfoot Grammar, the companion volume to The Blackfoot Dictionary of Stems, Roots and Affixes Third Edition, provides description and analyses of the major features of Blackfoot grammar and language structures. The changes throughout this third edition reflect approaches refined through years of teaching experience. A new appendix, featuring a lengthy Blackfoot text with interlinear English translation has been added, as well as numerous corrections and additions to every chapter. This third edition of Blackfoot Grammar will be a welcome resource not only for those who wish to learn the language, but for all those with an interest in Native Studies and North American linguistics.

"Depuis le début de la colonisation française, sous l'influence des facteurs géographiques, historiques et culturels, le français des Petites Antilles a développé des particularités par rapport à la langue de la Métropole, et le compartiment où ces différences sont très évidentes est le lexique. Le but de cet ouvrage est de contribuer à l'étude des régionalismes lexicaux de l'aire caraïbe, un domaine de la lexicographie francophone peu exploré jusqu'il y a quelques années, à travers un corpus de littérature guadeloupéenne contemporaine. Plusieurs situations sont inventoriées et analysées : la création des mots nouveaux notamment par le procédé de la composition, innovations sémantiques par rapport aux mots du français métropolitain, ou la vivacité des mots du français populaire du XVIIIe siècle et des vocables qui en Métropole sont perçues comme archaïques. Même si la méthode employée par Teodor-Florin Zanoaga est différentielle, la perspective de son étude est globale, car toutes les particularités relevées sont comparées autant que possible avec le lexique français pratiqué dans d'autres espaces francophones dans le but de montrer la richesse lexicale que constituent les régionalismes en francophonie. L'ouvrage s'adresse non seulement aux lexicographes, mais aussi aux passionnés de littérature antillaise, en général, qui trouveront dans ce livre un appui linguistique pour comprendre en profondeur le texte d'un roman agréable, puisé dans l'ethos antillais."--Page 4 of cover.

Drawing on extensive fieldwork in the research community, the book is a focused exploration of discourse patterns of Alto Perene Arawak, with emphasis on conversational structures. The book's methodological scaffold is based on proposals and insights from multiple research fields, such as comparative conversation analysis, sociology, interactional linguistics, documentary linguistics, anthropological linguistics, and prosodic typology. The interactional patterns of a small Arawak language of Peru are shown to share the common infrastructure reported in the organization of conversation across other languages and cultures. Yet the analysis demonstrates a variety of unique nuances in the organization of interactional behavior of Alto Perene Arawak participants. The peculiarities observed are attributed to the language-specific semiotic resources and participants' orientation to the local cultural norms. The book's structured examination of conversational data of a small indigenous language of South America is anticipated to be of utility to linguistic research on understudied non-Western languages.

Engaging Native American Publics considers the increasing influence of Indigenous groups as key audiences, collaborators, and authors with regards to their own linguistic documentation and representation. The chapters critically examine a variety of North American case studies to reflect on the forms and effects of new collaborations between language researchers and Indigenous communities, as well as the types and uses of products that emerge with notions of cultural maintenance and linguistic revitalization in mind. In assessing the nature and degree of change from an early period of "salvage" research to a period of greater Indigenous "self-determination, " the volume addresses whether increased empowerment and accountability has truly transformed the terms of engagement and what the implications for the future might be.

French Creoles: A Comprehensive and Comparative Grammar is the first complete reference to present the morphology, grammar and syntax of a representative selection of French Creoles in one volume. The book is organised to promote a thorough understanding of the grammar of French Creoles and presents its complexities in a concise and readable form. An extensive index, cross-referencing and a generous use of headings provides readers with immediate access to the information they require. The varieties included within the volume provide a representative collection of French Creoles from the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, including: Mauritian Creole, Seychelles Creole, Reunion Creole (where relevant), Haitian Creole, Martinique Creole, Guadeloupe Creole, Guyanese French Creole, Karipuna, St. Lucia Creole, Louisiana Creole and Tayo. By providing a comprehensive description of a range of French Creoles in a clear and non-technical manner, this grammar is the ideal reference for all linguists and researchers with an interest in Creole studies and in French, descriptive and historical linguistics.

A popular approach to the subject, not an academic book. Tomson Highway is not an academic. He is an artist who uses artistic language.Readers are not obliged to read the whole volume. Each page is like an entry in an encyclopedia. All one has to do is leaf through the table of contents, choose an entry, and ignore all the rest or, rather, save it for another more propitious time.Each book description is a snapshot. Not only should the reader's curiosity be piqued to the point where he or she will want to buy the book seen in that snapshot, he will want to read more books written by the same author.Think of this book as "Tomson's Books, " which would be this fascinating collection of writings by Native writers wherein this ridiculous Cree man from northern Manitoba chats warmly about and then, similar to Gilmour's Albums, the popular radio show that ran from 1957 to 1997 on CBC Radio hosted by the amiable Clyde Gilmour.
