Story of English MICHAEL O´MARA BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"The Story of English" illustrates the compelling history of how the relatively obscure dialects spoken by tribes from what are now Denmark, the Low Countries and northern Germany, became the most widely spoken language in the world, and of how that language evolved during the last two millennia. Chronologically ordered and divided into six main sections covering pre-Roman and Latin influences, the ascent of Old English, and the succession of Middle English, Early Modern and then Late Modern English to today's global language, this fascinating book also explores such factors as the history of the printing press, the works of Chaucer, the evolution of "The American Dictionary of the English Language" - commonly known as Webster's - and the magisterial "Oxford English Dictionary", to the use of slang in today's speech and the coming of electronic messaging: language for a post-modern world. "The Story of English" is the perfect gift for any lover not just of English, but of the history and development of language.

English - One Tongue, Many Voices PALGRAVE MACMILLAN

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is the fully revised and expanded second edition of English - One Tongue, Many Voices, a book by three internationally distinguished English language scholars who tell the fascinating, improbable saga of English in time and space. Chapters trace the history of the language from its obscure beginnings over 1500 years ago as a collection of dialects spoken by marauding, illiterate tribes. They show how the geographical spread of the language in its increasing diversity has made English into an international language of unprecedented range and variety. The authors examine the present state of English as a global language and the problems, pressures and uncertainties of its future, online and offline. They argue that, in spite of the amazing variety and plurality of English, it remains a single language. §

English Spelling Book Worth Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The English Spelling Book by William Fordyce Mavor was original published in 1801. Numerous editions followed including this enchanting version, profusely illustrated by Kate Greenaway and representing a high point in the creation of early pictorial ABCs. The story of the English language - and how the written word, vocabulary and spelling mutated through a maelstrom of politics, economics, and accident - presents a fascinating journey. Emerging from the Dark Ages, spelling evolved through the Norman domination, absorbed the language of Geoffrey Chaucer, was illuminated by medieval monks and explored in William Tyndale's modern English Bible in 1525. Some words saw curious changes at the hands of early printers and not until the birth of the dictionary under the painstaking custody of Samuel Johnson in 1755 were any English spellings fixed - and then they would be rididly maintained despite sweeping reforms elsewhere. Few other languages proffer as many inconsistencies: learning to read became quite a challenge. Educational aids included the hornbook, gingerbread leters, folded card battledores, primers, readers, spellers, Biblical texts and stories with a moral message. There might be notes on pronunciation, advise to young persons and lists of English royalty. During the later 1800s, ABC books became more widely written and published, as books for young children grew ever more popular and available. These included stories and pictorial elements to add to the fun. Certainly Kate Greenaway's illustrations injected gentle humour and affection into a learning process that the culmination of history and change had made so very complicated.

Dictionary of Modern English Usage Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

'What grammarians say should be has perhaps less influence on what shall be than even the more modest of them realize ...' No book had more influence on twentieth-century attitudes to the English language in Britain than Henry Fowler's Dictionary of Modern English Usage. It rapidly became the standard work of reference for the correct use of English in terms of choice of words, grammar, and style. Much loved for his firm opinions, passion, and dry humour, Fowler has stood the test of time and is still considered the best arbiter of good practice. In this new edition of the original Dictionary, David Crystal goes beyond the popular mythology surrounding Fowler's reputation to retrace his method and arrive at a fresh evaluation of his place in the history of linguistic thought. With a wealth of entertaining examples he looks at Fowler's stated principles and the tensions between his prescriptive and descriptive temperaments. He shows that the Dictionary does a great more than make normative recommendations and express private opinion. In addition he offers a modern perspective on some 300 entries, in which he shows how English has changed since the 1920s. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Doing Business in the Global Environment: Corporate Social Responsibility as an Organization's Core Business Strategy? GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Scholarly Research Paper from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - Business Ethics, Corporate Ethics, printed single-sided, grade: 1,7, University of Cooperative Education (International Business Administration), course: -, 30 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In recent years, a great concern about the broad impacts of business on society has evolved. As a result, this concern has transformed into the responsibility business has to society. Accordingly, companies see their actions more and more monitored by the public, on both national and international level. Thus, their role within society is gaining importance, being considered a creative and institutional one, instead of only existential. Apart from that, this results in a growing interaction between the government, business and the stakeholder. In the past, business primary concern was the economic situation, whereas today, business has to consider the legal, ethical, moral and social impact of its decisions as well. This leads to the assumption that in the near future, it will not be possible to conduct business without acting socially responsible.This development is closely connected to the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility, which is the subject of this paper. Concerning the selection of secondary literature, apart from both English and German books, several articles from business magazines have been included in the research. At first, this paper will provide an overview of the current emergence of CSR as an essential part of daily business. However, the focus lies on the effects of CSR on an organization s core business. In Germany, for instance, while acknowledging their social responsibility, companies are still far away from making CSR part of their core business strategy. This paper will discuss the possibility of how embedding CSR in a firm s strategy can lead to business success. In addition, a potential link between competitive advantage and CSR will be outlined, before some major arguments of critics will be illustrated. Finally, as a conclusion, the main arguments and results of the research will be summarized and a short outlook will be provided.

A Textual History of the King James Bible Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

David Norton re-edited the King James Bible for Cambridge, and this 2005 book arose from his intensive work on that project. Here he shows how the text of the most important Bible in the English language was made, and how, for better and for worse, it changed in the hands of printers and editors until, in 1769, it became the text we know today. Using evidence as diverse as the manuscript work of the original translators, and the results of extensive computer collation of electronically held texts, Norton has produced a scholarly edition of the King James Bible for the new century that will restore the authority of the 1611 translation. This book describes this fascinating background, explains Norton's editorial principles and provides substantial lists and tables of variant readings. It will be indispensable to scholars of the English Bible, literature, and publishing history.

Essay from the year 2009 in the subject Communications - Movies and Television, printed single-sided, grade: 4,0 = 2,0 (vgl. Anm.), University of Helsinki (Communications), course: Introduction to Media and Global Communication, language: English, abstract: This essay addresses the topic of format adaption. The definition of a format, the development history as well as the role of format adaption in the global and local media landscape will be examined. The main focus will lay on the question if and how format adaption has influenced the media world and why formats are so successful. These questions will be linked to the cultural imperialism and globalisation discourse. The theoretical construct will be complemented by the example of Big Brother to clarify the most important aspects of the argumentation. A discussion of this topic is valuable because the arguments raised in the positioning of format adaption reflect the general point in the media imperialism (critique) and globalisation debate.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Investment and Finance, grade: 1,3, University of applied sciences, Munich, course: International Finance & Accounting, language: English, abstract: During the Financial Crisis 2007-2010, which was the result of housing bubble in theUnited States in 2006, commercial banks rapidly decreased the amount of commerciallending worldwide. So called subprime credits made the assets of commercial banksless worth during a short period. It was the cause for the credit crunch in manyeconomies. Because many enterprises have to rely on debt capital, which they lend fromcommercial banks to finance their investments, the credit crunch hit such enterprisesvery hard. The outcome is that the whole economy suffers. Many governmentselaborated the bad bank concept to solve the problem of decreased commercial lending,also Germany. It means, that banks will be allowed to start special purpose vehicles(SPV) for holding the subprime credits and to bring such subprime credits out of thebalance sheet of the bank. In Anglo-Saxon countries there are two other terms in use forSPV: (loan) recovery agency and asset management company. According to Homoelle,Ruff and Tuerr1 in theory and praxis there are many variants of bad bank modelsexisting. Until now the question which model is most successful, became insufficientexploration.German government adopted two different models of bad banks and proposed theFinancial Market Stabilisation Act (FMStFG), which became effective on July 22th2009.2 After that some banks used this opportunity and transferred their subprime assetsto such SPV.The scope of the work is first to evaluate why exactly commercial banks decreased thecommercial lending, second to analyse German bad bank concept and then to work outthe incentives of this concept for more commercial lending by commercial banks and toshow some examples of implementation of bad bank concept by German banks. At the end the answer on the question, whether the bad bank concept increases the ability andwillingness of German commercial banks to make more commercial credits available ornot, will be given in this term paper.

Champagne: How the World's Most Glamorous Wine Triumphed Over War and Hard Times Perennial

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Throughout history, waves of invaders have coveted the northeast corner of France: Attila the Hun in the fifth century, the English in the Hundred Years War, the Prussians in the nineteenth century. Yet this region - which historians say has suffered more battles and wars than any other place on earth - is also the birthplace of one thing the entire world equates with good times, friendship and celebration: champagne. Champagne is the story of the world's favourite wine. It tells how a sparkling beverage that became the toast of society during the Belle Epoque emerged after World War I as a global icon of fine taste and good living. The book celebrates the gutsy, larger-than-life characters whose proud determination nurtured and preserved the land and its grapes throughout centuries of conflict.

AustroPop - a transcultural style and a product of cultural contact GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1, 0, University of Vienna (Anglistik/Amerikanistik), course: CSI: Vienna, language: English, abstract: In this paper, I have tried to describe what a cultural transformation can be, using Austropop as a specifically Austrian example. For that, I first have rethought articles by Erward Larkey, Richard Wagnleitner and Gerd Gemünden. Their contributions and the critical class debates were necessary in order to understand cultural exchanges in a German speaking context. Going back in history and reconsidering the roots of certain developments can shed light on the reasons for their existence, as in the case of Austropop. Therefore, I have added a short history of Austropop that focuses more on the how and why than on its actors. In chapter three, I have analyzed a particular Austropop artist and compared him to his American 'counterpart' and pointed out the differences, similarities and especially novelties that came to life through a cultural exchange.
