Charles Willeford Omnibus 2 from the Author: Charles Willeford. Charles Willeford's varied, colourful life informs his tongue-in-cheek attitude towards the violence, treachery and plain craziness evident in his four novels in this second omnibus. The Woman Chaser allows its hero, Richard Hudson, womaniser and used car salesman, to play skilfully on all the vulnerabilities of men and women . . . but not without a comeuppance. Cockfighter is the least likely pulp novel of these: it is a masterpiece, a portrait of silent, passionate masculinity set against the underbelly of the rural South of the early 1960s. The Burnt Orange Heresy is a long satire on art, art criticism and collecting, and reflects Willeford's favourite pastime. The Machine in Ward Eleven collects six stories that display the madness that lies at the heart of politics, as Willeford lays bare the American Dream.

Dictionary Of Louisiana French from the Author: Albert Valdman. The Dictionary of Louisiana French (DLF) provides the richest inventory of French vocabulary in Louisiana and reflects precisely the speech of the period from 1930 to the present. This dictionary describes the current usage of French-speaking peoples in the five broad regions of South Louisiana: the coastal marshes, the banks of the Mississippi River, the central area, the north, and the western prairie. Data were collected during interviews from at least five persons in each of twenty-four areas in these regions. In addition to the data collected from fieldwork, the dictionary contains material compiled from existing lexical inventories, from texts published after 1930, and from archival recordings. The new authoritative resource, the DLF not only contains the largest number of words and expressions but also provides the most complete information available for each entry. Entries include the word in the conventional French spelling, the pronunciation (including attested variants), the part of speech classification, the English equivalent, and the word's use in common phrases. The DLF features a wealth of illustrative examples derived from fieldwork and textual sources and identification of the parish where the entry was collected or the source from which it was compiled. An English-to-Louisiana French index enables readers to find out how particular notions would be expressed in la Louisiane .

Love Sex And Marriage from the Author: Julie Coleman. If the language we use influences and reflects the way that we see the world, then the fields of LOVE, SEX, and MARRIAGE, will show how speakers of English view their closest social and emotional relationships. Love, Sex, and Marriageprovides a classification of English terms for these three fields from the earliest written records of the language until the present day. This volume makes it possible to trace changing attitudes towards social and sexual ties, and to understand those ties as earlier speakers of English did, through the language they used. The terms are arranged by meaning, and are listed chronologically within semantic fields, with their dates of usage. Notes on individual terms provide further information about their connotations and development. Language does not exist in isolation from the people who speak it, so background information about changes in social conditions, religious beliefs, and medical advancements is also included. A brief introduction to basic semantic terminology explains the principles behind the classification, and an alphabetical index facilitates the location of individual terms.
