Family Language Policy

This book explores the question of family language policy in multilingual households. Presenting six case studies which focus on the experiences of parents and children in French-English bilingual contexts, the author draws conclusions about the impact of parental language management on the family as a whole which can be applied to transnational families from other linguistic backgrounds. While many parental guides on bilingual childrearing have been published in recent years, little attention has been paid to the possible impact of such language strategies on the experiences and interrelationships of bilingual family members. This book is unique in focusing in depth on the psychology and experiences of the child, and it will be of interest to readers in fields as diverse as sociolinguistics, language policy and planning, sociology of youth and family, and child psychology.

Language Learning  Discourse and Communication

This volume brings together papers on a wide spectrum of topics within the broad area of language acquisition, stressing the interconnections between applied and theoretical linguistics, as well as language research methodology. These contributions in honor of Professor Jan Majer have been grouped in two sections: language learning, and discourse and communication. The former discusses issues varying from aspects of first, second, and third language acquisition, individual learner differences (i.e. gender, attitudes, learning strategies), and second language research methodology to the analysis of features of learner spoken language, the role of feedback in foreign language instruction, and the position of culture in EFL textbooks. The second part of the volume offers a theoretical counterbalance to the applied nature of the first one. Here, the contributions touch upon spoken and written language analysis, language awareness, and aspects of the English language; also, selected issues of language philosophy are discussed. The wide range of topics covered in the publication, authored by specialists in their respective areas, reflects Professor Majer’s academic interests and corresponds to the complex nature of the general field the volume aims to portray.

Class and State in Ancien Regime France

Class and State in Early Modern France explores the economic, social, ideological and political foundations of French Absolutism. David Parker's challenging interpretation presents French Absolutism as a remarkably successful attempt to preserve the political and ideological structures of the traditional order. This reassessment runs contrary to much revisionist historiography, rejecting the widespread tendency to treat French Absolutism either as an instrument of capitalism or political modernisation. It also discusses a number of contentious issues such as the agrarian foundations of capitalism, the relationship between class and status, as well as the structure and ideology of the absolute state itself. It will be of interest to early modern historians of France, Britain and Europe.

Life on a French Poster

The key to successful “brocante-ing” is, however, to establish friendly relationships with the owners; buy more than one item for “le bon prix” and—that language thing again—speak a little French and understand more.

Life on a French Poster

"Life on a French Poster" is an evocative, informative read for anyone who can relate to escaping to a better life to find that even paradise has its pitfalls. It is about assimilating new cultures (Franglais-American in this case); Breathing new life into a 500-year old French priory (Does one save the torchis? or not?); Developing new skills (like buying property as a foreigner and ironing giant bedcovers); Having a laugh over dinner with visitors from around the world (that's table d'hotes); and Becoming a village sex symbol (by accident via the "love window.") "Life on a French Poster" details aspects of one significant year in the lives of author Patricia Pearson and her husband Dan. It is true account of their restoration of Le Prieure, a 16th century priory in the remote tourist village of Biron, Southwest France. Pearson's skillful description of the transformation of this rambling stone manoir into a luxury bed & breakfast is part adventure, part romance and part travelogue. The book title springs from a 1970s vintage tourist poster with Le Prieure (www.fancyfrance.net) prominently featured at the foot of Chateau Biron. " Life on a French Poster." Is it possible for you?
