#2050. Knowles の英語史概説書の目次 [historiography][hel_education][toc]

 「#2007. Gramley の英語史概説書の目次」 ([2014-10-25-1]),「#2038. Fennell の英語史概説書の目次」 ([2014-11-25-1]) に続き,社会言語学的な観点を多分に含んだもう1つの読みやすい英語史書,Gerry Knowles 著 A Cultural History of the English Language の目次を掲げる.歴史社会言語学的な立場からの英語史概説書を紹介する機会が多いが,個人的には今や古典といってよい,筋金入りの構造主義路線をいく Strang や特異な言語史観をもつ Görlach なども本当は好きである.それでも個別言語史は話者(集団)の歴史,いわゆる外面史とともに記述するのが原則だろうとは思っている.
 Knowles の章節のタイトルを見ていくと,Jespersen の Growth and Structure of the English Language を彷彿させるところがある.社会史としての英語史の流れが簡潔にとらえられる目次だ.Knowles に言及した過去の記事も参照されたい.

#2038. Fennell の英語史概説書の目次 [historiography][hel_education][toc][flash]

 「#2007. Gramley の英語史概説書の目次」 ([2014-10-25-1]) に続き,英語史概説書の目次を挙げて,英語史 (a history of English) を数分で俯瞰するというシリーズの第2弾.Fennell (2001) は,本ブログでもたびたび参照してきた英語史概説書であり,歴史社会言語学的なアプローチに特徴がある.ある書評を読むと,"A Sociolinguistic Approach" という副題の割には,とりわけ古い時代における社会言語学的な扱いは弱く,体系的でもないという.一方で,最後の3章,後期近代英語以降の各章では社会言語学的な洞察が光っており,読むに値するという評価がある.私もおよそこの評価に同意する.新しい洞察がどれだけあるかといえば必ずしも多くはないかもしれないが,近代以前の時代についても社会言語学的に興味深い話題をいくつか提供しており,社会言語学的に英語史を眺めるとどうなるかという試みとしてはよいのではないかと好意的に見ている.社会言語学寄りとはいえ伝統的な構造言語学的な記述も多いので,その他の定評のある英語史概説書を1, 2冊読んだ上で読むのに適するのではないか.ノードの開閉もできる Flash 版ももどうぞ.

 近年の英語史概説書におよそ共有される特徴ではあるが,近現代の英語を巡る社会言語学的な記述や論考が目立つ.Gramley では,英語の諸変種(ピジン語やクレオール語を含め)について多くの紙幅が割かれており,とりわけ12--13章においてその内容が充実しているように思われる.また,ENL, ESL, ELF/EFL の区別にかかわらず英語が "identitarian role" を担っているという指摘が繰り返されている辺り,21世紀的な英語観が感じられる.社会言語学的な色彩の濃い英語史概説書として,Fennell と並んでお勧めしたい.

#1993. Hickey による言語外的要因への慎重論 [causation][contact][language_change][history_of_linguistics][toc]

 昨日の記事「#1992. Milroy による言語外的要因への擁護」 ([2014-10-10-1]) を含め,ここ2週間余のあいだに言語接触や言語変化における言語外的要因の重要性について複数の記事を書いてきた (cf. [2014-09-25-1], [2014-09-26-1], [2014-10-04-1]) .今回は,視点のバランスを取るために,言語外的要因に対する慎重論もみておきたい.Hickey (195) は,自らが言語接触の入門書を編んでいるほどの論客だが,"Language Change" と題する文章で,言語接触による言語変化の説明について冷静な見解を示している.

   Already in 19th century Indo-European studies contact appears as an explanation for change though by and large mainstream Indo-Europeanists preferred language-internal accounts. One should stress that strictly speaking contact is not so much an explanation for language change as a suggestion for the source of a change, that is, it does not say why a change took place but rather where it came from. For instance, a language such as Irish or Welsh may have VSO as a result of early contact with languages also showing this word order. However, this does not explain how VSO arose in the first place (assuming that it is not an original word order for any language). The upshot of this is that contact accounts frequently just push back the quest for explanation a stage further.
   Considerable criticism has been levelled at contact accounts because scholars have often been all too ready to accept contact as a source, to the neglect of internal factors or inherited features within a language. This readiness to accept contact, particularly when other possibilities have not been given due consideration, has led to much criticism of contact accounts in the 1970s and 1980s . . . . However, a certain swing around can be seen from the 1990s onwards, a re-valorisation of language contact when considered from an objective and linguistically acceptable point of view as demanded by Thomason & Kaufman (1988) . . . .

 上に引用した Hickey の "Language Change" は,限られた紙幅ながらも,言語変化理論を手際よくまとめた良質の解説文である.以下,参考までに節の目次を挙げておく.

Issues in language change
   Internal and external factors
   Simplicity and symmetry
   Iconicity and indexicality
   Markedness and naturalness
   Telic changes and epiphenomena
   Mergers and distinctions
   Possible changes
   Unidirectionality of change
   Ebb and flow
Change and levels of language
   Phonological change
   Morphological change
   Syntactic change

   The principles and parameters model
Semantic change
Pragmatic change
   Comparative method
   Internal reconstruction

#1975. 文法化研究の発展と拡大 (2) [grammaticalisation][unidirectionality][pragmatics][subjectification][invisible_hand][teleology][drift][reanalysis][iconicity][exaptation][terminology][toc]

 昨日の記事「#1974. 文法化研究の発展と拡大 (1)」 ([2014-09-22-1]) を受けて,文法化 (grammaticalisation) 研究の守備範囲の広さについて補足する.Bussmann (196--97) によると,文法化がとりわけ関心をもつ疑問には次のようなものがある.

(a) Is the change of meaning that is inherent to grammaticalization a process of desemanticization, or is it rather a case (at least in the early stages of grammaticalization) of a semantic and pragmatic concentration?
(b) What productive parts do metaphors and metonyms play in grammaticalization?
(c) What role does pragmatics play in grammaticalization?
(d) Are there any universal principles for the direction of grammaticalization, and, if so, what are they? Suggestions for such 'directed' principles include: (i) increasing schematicization; (ii) increasing generalization; (iii) increasing speaker-related meaning; and (iv) increasing conceptual subjectivity.

 昨日記した守備範囲と合わせて,文法化研究の潜在的なカバレッジの広さと波及効果の大きさを感じることができる.また,秋元 (vii) の目次より文法化理論に関連する用語を拾い出すだけでも,この分野が言語研究の根幹に関わる諸問題を含む大項目であることがわかるだろう.

第1章 文法化
1.1 序
1.2 文法化とそのメカニズム
1.2.1 語用論的推論 (Pragmatic inferencing)
1.2.2 漂白化 (Bleaching)
1.3 一方向性 (Unidirectionality)
1.3.1 一般化 (Generalization)
1.3.2 脱範疇化 (Decategorialization)
1.3.3 重層化 (Layering)
1.3.4 保持化 (Persistence)
1.3.5 分岐化 (Divergence)
1.3.6 特殊化 (Specialization)
1.3.7 再新化 (Renewal)
1.4 主観化 (Subjectification)
1.5 再分析 (Reanalysis)
1.6 クラインと文法化連鎖 (Grammaticalization chains)
1.7 文法化とアイコン性 (Iconicity)
1.8 文法化と外適応 (Exaptation)
1.9 文法化と「見えざる手」 (Invisible hand) 理論
1.10 文法化と「偏流」 (Drift) 論

 文法化は,主として言語の通時態に焦点を当てているが,一方で主として共時的な認知文法 (cognitive grammar) や機能文法 (functional grammar) とも親和性があり,通時態と共時態の交差点に立っている.そこが,何よりも魅力である.
