Tongue-Tied is an anthology that gives voice to millions of people who, on a daily basis, are denied the opportunity to speak in their own language. First-person accounts by Amy Tan, Sherman Alexie, bell hooks, Richard Rodriguez, Maxine Hong Kingston and many other authors open windows onto the lives of linguistic minority students and their experience in coping in school and beyond. Selections from these writers are presented along accessible, abridged scholarly articles that assess the impact of language policies on the experiences and life opportunities of minority-language students. Vivid and unforgettable, the readings in Tongue-Tied are ideal for teaching and learning about American education and for spurring informed debate about the many factors that affect students and their lives.

Angelockt durch eine ungewöhnliche Stellenanzeige kommt Prudencia Prim, eine unabhängige, gebildete, moderne und mit zahlreichen Titeln versehene junge Frau in San Ireneo de Arnois an, um dort »einem höflichen Mann und seinen Büchern als Bibliothekarin zu Seite zu stehen«. Zwar hat Prudencia Prim, die Bücher liebt und selbst auf der Flucht ist vor dem Getöse der Welt, das gute Gefühl, dass dies der Tag ist, auf den sie ihr Leben lang gewartet hat. Doch wie nachhaltig sich ihr Leben verändern wird, weiß sie nicht. Denn in San Ireneo ist nichts, wie es scheint ... Das Erwachen der Señorita Prim erzählt die wundersame Geschichte eines kleinen Dorfes, das der modernen Welt den Rücken gekehrt hat und wieder zu den essentiellen Dingen zurückgekehrt ist. Ein außergewöhnlicher Roman, eine ganz bezaubernde und kluge Geschichte über Zeit und alte Werte, Literatur, Freundschaft und vor allem Liebe.

The volume offers a number of representative papers on cognitive models that are invoked when people deal with questions of social identity, political and economic manipulation, and more general issues such as the genomic discourse. In line with the well-known volume Cultural Models in Language and Thought by Holland and Quinn (1987), the volume shows that Cognitive Linguistics has further explored the idea that we think about social reality in terms of models - 'cognitive/cultural models' or 'folk theories'. As in cultural models, the present volume demonstrates that the technical apparatus of Cognitive Linguistics can be used to analyze the various ways our conception of social reality is shaped by underlying cognitive and/or cultural models or patterns of thought, and also looks into how this is done. The new inroad the volume wants to pursue is the deliberate and explicit orientation towards a cognitive sociolinguistics, or more generally, a cognitive semiotics.

Die Situation der Grundschule in Deutschland ist prekär: In keinem vergleichbaren europäischen Land ist der Zusammenhang zwischen sozialer Herkunft und Bildungschancen so eng wie in Deutschland. Schon am Ende der Grundschulzeit sind die Bildungschancen weitgehend festgelegt - und zwar überwiegend in Abhängigkeit von der sozialen Herkunft der Schülerinnnen und Schüler. Das ist für die Grundschule in einer demokratisch verfassten Gesellschaft ein unerträglicher Zustand. Dieser Band beschreibt vielfältige Versuche, die Krise zu überwinden, und dokumentiert neueste Forschungsvorhaben zu diesem Thema.
