A Response To Campbell, Edward J. Vajda 2011 Western Washington University

A Response To Campbell, Edward J. Vajda

Modern & Classical Languages

The Dene–Yeniseian (DY) hypothesis argues that Athabaskan-Eyak-Tlingit (NaDene) is related to the Siberian family Yeniseian, which consists of Ket and several extinct relatives. The strongest evidence comes from the verb-internal tense–mood system, action nominal (gerund, infinitive) morphology, and sound correspondences based on cognates in basic vocabulary. Shared words for ‘conifer needles’, ‘conifer pitch’, ‘rump, leg’, ‘liver’, and others reveal that phonemic tones arose separately in Yeniseian and Athabaskan from an earlier distinction involving coda glottalization, the original glottal articulation surviving in Tlingit and Eyak. Proponents of the DY hypothesis regard such evidence as indicative of genealogical affinity.

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

Dos obras de teatro de los años noventa del siglo XX, representativas de dos países, España y México, proporcionan espacios privilegiados para un estudio comparativo de la masculinidad. Esta tesis explora el género y la identidad masculina, y específicamente, la hipermasculinidad en las obras de teatro Yonquis y yanquis (1996), del español José Luis Alonso de Santos y Entre Villa y una mujer desnuda (1993), de la mexicana Sabina Berman. Para llevar a cabo este análisis se aborda primeramente lo polisémico que significa ser hombre en varios contextos socio-culturales, la hipermasculinidad, y también los términos que se conocen popularmente como ...

In the 1970s, the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center at the University of Connecticut acquired the vast collection of Spanish periodicals accumulated by the bibliophile, Juan Perez de Guzman y Boza (1852-1934), Duque de T'Serclaes in the Spanish province of Badajoz. The periodicals and newspapers, mainly from southern Spain, date from the eighteenth to the early twentieth century, with a majority of the materials from the nineteenth century. The collection as a whole covers a wide variety of topics including politics, literature, science, business, art, and music; as such, it aptly reflects the complex history of Spain of this ...


Performing Violence In Rotrou’S Theater, Nina Ekstein 2011 Trinity University

Performing Violence In Rotrou’S Theater, Nina Ekstein

Modern Languages and Literatures Faculty Research

Violence has a significant and varied role in the theater of Jean Rotrou. Discord and strife are natural to the stage and violence is one of the ways such conflict may be expressed. The inherently spectacular nature of violence makes it particularly theatrical. At the same time, violence pleasingly tantalizes audiences. In this examination of Rotrou’s entire theatrical corpus, I first consider the use of “real” violence, both on stage and off. More interesting and even more common is potential violence, which includes threats of all sorts, as well as fortuitous interruptions. Potential violence avoids the serious difficulties that ...
