Chapter 2
The Mother Tongue

The making of English is the story of three invasions and a cultural revolution. In the simplest terms, the language was brought to Britain by Germanic tribes, the Angles, Saxons, and Jutes, influenced by Latin and Greek when St Augustine and his followers converted England to Christianity, subtly enriched by the Danes, and finally transformed by the French‑speaking Normans.

From the beginning, English was a crafty hybrid, made in war and peace. It was, in the words of Daniel Defoe, ‘your Roman‑Saxon‑Danish‑Norman English’. In the course of one thousand years, a series of violent and dramatic events created a new language which, by the time of Geoffrey Chaucer, was intelligible to modern eyes and ears without the aid of subtitles.

The English have always accepted the mixed blood of their language. There was a vague understanding that they were part of a European language family, but it was not until the eighteenth century that a careful investigation by a gifted amateur linguist began to decipher the true extent of this common heritage.
The Common Source

In the early days of the Raj, Sir William Jones, a British judge stationed in India, presented a remarkable address to the Asiatick Society in Calcutta, the fruits of his investigations into ancient Sanskrit. A keen lawyer, Jones had originally intended to familiarize himself with India’s native law codes. To his surprise, he discovered that Sanskrit bore a striking resemblance to two other ancient languages of his acquaintance, Latin and Greek. The Sanskrit word for father, transliterated from its exotic alphabet, emerged as pitar, astonishingly similar, he observed, to the Greek and Latin pater. The Sanskrit for mother was matar; in the Latin of his school days, it was mater. Investigating further, he discovered dozens of similar correspondences. Though he was not the first to notice these similarities, no one before Sir William Jones had studied them systematically. The Sanskrit language, he announced to the Asiatick Society on that evening of 2 February 1786, shared with Greek and Latin a stronger affinity … than could possibly have been produced by accident; so strong, indeed, that no philologer could examine them all three, without believing them to have sprung from some common source, which, perhaps, no longer exists

GAR0242 BOEK: ‘de Megalietenbouwers’, Francis HITCHING

 'de Megalietenbouwers', Francis HITCHING
DESCRIPTION: DE MEGALIETENBOUWERS Verspreid langs de kusten van Europa bevinden zich tal van overblijfselen uit ons verre verleden. Daar verheffen zich even geheimzinnig als spookachtig de door hoge stenen gevormde cirkels, de dolmens en de grafheuvels, die ons herinneren aan een tijdperk van ver voor het ontstaan van het wiel, meer dan vijfduizend jaar geleden. Met welk doel vele van deze monumenten door de Europese megalitische mens werden opgericht is een der grootste mysteries, een mysterie dat nog altijd een bron vormt van eindeloze en vaak hoog oplaaiende discussies onder archeologen, historici, para-psychologen en zelfs onder religieuze fanatici.
Op fascinerende wijze onderwerpt Francis Hitching de vele argumenten van de elkaar bestrijdende partijen aan een eerlijk en openhartig onderzoek. Hij voegt die argumenten aaneen tot ze in elkaar passen als de stukken van een gigantische legpuzzel en versterkt daarbij gaandeweg het geloof in de thans veld winnende opvatting, dat de mensen die duizend jaar voor het ontstaan van de piramiden de aarde bevolkten beslist niet de barbaren waren voor wie wij hen eeuwen lang hebben gehouden. Integendeel, in dit boek wordt onthuld dat zij, hoewel onbekend met de geschreven taal, een beschaving bezaten van bijzonder hoog peil en dat zij in welhaast volkomen harmonie leefden met de aarde en haar geheimen.
In Amerika werd De megalietenbouwers door de Book-of” the-Month Club gekozen tot keuzeboek van de maand. Francis Hitching Is zowel lid van het Royal lnstitute of Archaeology als van de Prehistorie Society in Engeland.

Jan van TOORN - Design beyond Design
DESCRIPTION:
Jan van Toorn (Ed.)
Design beyond design. Critical reflection and the practice of visual communication
English — 192 pp — 170 x 245 mm — colour and b&w illustrations
ISBN 90-6617-224-x
Out of print
Design beyond design. Critical reflection and the practice of visual communication is devoted to the discrepancy between the socio-economic and symbolic reality of the worldwide information and consumer culture and the prospects for a democratisation of the media. More, in particular, it deals with the role of practical intellectuals as visual producers in this development. It concentrates on a communication design that deliberately aims at ‘abolishing the boundaries between the everyday and aesthetic experience’ and puts the strategies and forms of expression of the operational and reflexive traditions on the table for discussion. Initiatives in areas outside the preserve of official design are discussed, as well as dialogic forms of visual communication within design aimed at the formation of independent opinion and participation.

Editorial Reviews
“Lippard skillfully shows the ‘primal urge’ is a core issue in ‘post-modernist’ art. . . it is invaluable as an insider’s synthesis capturing the consciousness of vanguard art in the recent past.” — Village Voice

“Lucy Lippard has skillfully blended sun, moon, myth, and ritual in a search for the meaning and social function of art.” — Gerald Hawkins, author of Stonehenge Decoded and Mindsteps to the Cosmos

“The book’s strength lies in the depth of the author’s commitment–her dual loyalty to tradition and modernity and her effort to restore the broken connection between the two.” — New York Times Book Review

She has authored twenty-three books, has curated more than fifty major exhibitions, and holds nine honorary doctorates of fine arts.
