Scots: The Mither Tongue is a classic of contemporary Scottish culture and essential reading for those who care about their country's identity in the twenty-first century. It is a passionately written history of how the Scots have come to speak the way they do and has acted as a catalyst for radical changes in attitude towards the language. In this completely revised edition, Kay vigorously renews the social, cultural and political debate on Scotland's linguistic future, and argues convincingly for the necessity to retain and extend Scots if the nation is to hold on to its intrinsic values. Kay places Scots in an international context, comparing and contrasting it with other lesser-used European languages, while at home questioning the Scottish Executive's desire to pay anything more than lip service to this crucial part of our national identity. Language is central to people's existence, and this vivid account celebrates the survival of Scots in its various dialects, its literature and song. The mither tongue is a national treasure that thrives in many parts of the country and underpins the speech of everyone who calls themselves a Scot.

The Big Bumper Book of Troy

The Big Bumper Book of Troy

The northern word for hometown, 'toon', flickers in meaning between 'tune' and 'cartoon'. In Bill Herbert's big bumper book, the title toon is Troy: the first lost home. Exiled to a lighthouse on the River Tyne, the wily Scots maestro has written a book in love with lost and difficult things. Sometimes reflective, sometimes subversively mischievous, he registers or rails against displacement and resettlement, lamenting the passing of relatives, cities, furniture, and the odd lemur.Plugged in to the poetry zeitgeist as ever, Herbert has revived a medieval publishing craze: the Troybook. Painstaking excavation of old comics establishes that the original site of Troytoon is Dundee. Or Madrid. Or possibly St Petersburg. The search for traces of Troy leads to Donegal, Crete, and, at the heart of his grand tour, a vivid verse journal set in post-perestroika Moscow. Dust off your highest brow and fasten your seatbelt, we're flying Economy to Byzantium.The Big Bumper Book of Troy is driven by sudden shifts of register - English to Scots, free verse to antique stanza, page to performance, narrative to lyric. Everything has become a dialect, yet - cheekily borrowing the Russian composer Schnittke's term - Herbert aims at a disrespectful polystylist unity. It is his most unorthodox rebellion yet against the dictatorship of the slim volume. A riot of colourful humour, a revolution in poetic taste.

Le present volume se veut avant tout un hommage de la collection louvaniste Hethitica a la memoire du regrette Professeur Erich Neu, eminent hittitologue, lequel occupa une place importante au sein du Comite de Redaction. Le lecteur decouvrira au debut de l'ouvrage l'evocation de l'oeuvre scientifique considerable d'Erich Neu, ainsi que l'importance de celle-ci. Cette rubrique est suivie de la presentation de la bibliographie complete de l'oeuvre de ce grand savant. Pas moins de dix-sept de ses Collegues, specialistes de renommee internationale dans le domaine des etudes concernant l'Anatolie antique, ont tenu a rendre hommage au savant, a l'humaniste disparu trop tot, par une contribution scientifique de haut niveau. L'unite du volume est constituee par la philologie anatolienne antique comprise au sens le plus large. Ainsi, les domaines hittite (nesite), louvite, palaite et ourarteen sont concernes a travers des etudes soit purement linguistiques et lexicographiques, soit epigraphiques, ou encore par le biais d'une approche de problemes directement lies au fonctionnement de la societe hittite tant au plan politico-institutionnel qu'au niveau culturel et religieux. Les periodes concernees remontent non seulement a l'age du Bronze, mais egalement au debut du premier millenaire avant notre ere (monde neo-louvite et monde ourarteen).
