    Tyranny of Words

    The pioneering and still essential text on semantics, urging readers to improve human communication and understanding with precise, concrete language.    In 1938, Stuart Chase revolutionized the study of semantics with his classic text, Tyranny of Words. Decades later, this eminently useful analysis of the way we use words continues to resonate. A contemporary of the economist Thorstein Veblen and the author Upton Sinclair, Chase was a social theorist and writer who despised the imprecision of contemporary communication. Wide-ranging and erudite, this iconic volume was one of the first to condemn the overuse of abstract words and to exhort language users to employ words that make their ideas accurate, complete, and readily understood.   “[A] thoroughly scholarly study of the science of the meaning of words.” —Kirkus Reviews   “When thinking about words, I think about Stuart Chase’s The Tyranny of Words. It is one of those books that never lose its message.” —CounterPunch

    The Story of Hebrew

    A unique history of the Hebrew language from biblical times to the modern Jewish state 
    This book explores the extraordinary hold that Hebrew has had on Jews and Christians, who have invested it with a symbolic power far beyond that of any other language in history. Preserved by the Jews across two millennia, Hebrew endured long after it ceased to be a mother tongue, resulting in one of the most intense textual cultures ever known. It was a bridge to Greek and Arab science. It unlocked the biblical sources for Jerome and the Reformation. Kabbalists and humanists sought philosophical truth in it, and Colonial Americans used it to shape their own Israelite political identity. Today, it is the first language of millions of Israelis. 
    The Story of Hebrew takes readers from the opening verses of Genesis—which seemingly describe the creation of Hebrew itself—to the reincarnation of Hebrew as the everyday language of the Jewish state. Lewis Glinert explains the uses and meanings of Hebrew in ancient Israel and its role as a medium for wisdom and prayer. He describes the early rabbis' preservation of Hebrew following the Babylonian exile, the challenges posed by Arabic, and the prolific use of Hebrew in Diaspora art, spirituality, and science. Glinert looks at the conflicted relationship Christians had with Hebrew from the Renaissance to the Counter-Reformation, the language's fatal rivalry with Yiddish, the dreamers and schemers that made modern Hebrew a reality, and how a lost pre-Holocaust textual ethos is being renewed today by Orthodox Jews. 
    A major work of scholarship, The Story of Hebrew is an unforgettable account of what one language has meant to those possessing it.

  • Rewriting Language - How Literary Texts Can Promote Inclusive Language Use - cover

    Rewriting Language - How...

    Inclusive language remains a hot
      topic. Despite decades of empirical evidence and revisions of formal language
      use, many inclusive adaptations of English and German continue to be ignored
      or contested. But how to convince speakers of the importance of inclusive
      language? Rewriting Language provides
      one possible answer: by engaging readers with the issue, literary texts can
      help to raise awareness and thereby promote wider linguistic change. 
       
    Christiane Luck analyses
    five iconic texts from a literary, linguistic and sociological perspective. She
    shows how Ursula K. Le Guin’s The Left
    Hand of Darkness and Verena Stefan’s Häutungen
    highlight the issues inherent in the linguistic status quo; Marge Piercy’s Woman on the Edge of Time and June
    Arnold’s The Cook and the Carpenter
    explore the possibilities and challenges of linguistic neutrality; and Gerd
    Brantenberg’s Egalias døtre reverses
    linguistic norms to illustrate the link between language and imagination. A
    focus group study provides empirical evidence for the effectiveness of the
    literary approaches and shows how literary texts can sensitise readers to the
    impact of biased language. Particularly in the context of education, Luck
    concludes, literary texts can be a valuable tool to promote inclusive language
    use.
