This can be the 1st finished description of the grammatical constitution of Teribe, a language of Panama, and a member of the Chibchan relations of languages, which covers a large zone starting from Northeastern Honduras, throughout the Atlantic of Nicaragua, such a lot of Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, to the West of Venezuela. Spoken through a few 1,000 humans, Teribe is at the present almost certainly, although now not seriously, endangered. This grammar fills a lacuna in a twofold demeanour: it offers an intensive account of the constitution of Teribe, and in doing so, it reduces the variety of valuable American Chibchan languages being undescribed. This grammar is therefore meant as a contribution to the outline of the language at 3 degrees: a. language-immanent; b. Chibchan comparative grammar; c. documentation of endangered languages, specifically these of the yankee continent. Teribe is either a transparent consultant of the "Central American" beneficial properties of the Chibchan languages (numeral classifiers, restricted contract, no evidentials), and idiosyncratic inside of those languages (having such phenomena as an inverse development and verb serialization). The learn for this booklet was once funded in its entirety by means of the Social Sciences and arts learn Council of Canada.

Marie Cabaud Meaney seems at Simone Weil's Christological interpretations of the Sophoclean Antigone and Electra, the Iliad and Aeschylus' Prometheus sure. except her article at the Iliad, Weil's interpretations should not widely recognized, most likely simply because they're fragmentary and boldly twist the classics, occasionally even contradicting their literal that means. Meaney argues that Weil had an apologetic goal in brain: to the religious ills of ideology and fanaticism in international warfare II she desired to supply a non secular solution, specifically the re-Christianization of Europe to which she (though now not baptized herself) wanted to give a contribution not directly. To the highbrow agnostics of her day she meant to teach via her interpretations that the texts they loved loads might basically be totally understood in gentle of Christ; to the Catholics she sought to bare that Catholicism was once even more common than usually believed, on account that Greek tradition already embodied the Christian spirit - might be to a better volume than the Catholic Church ever had. regardless of or maybe due to this apologetic slant, Weil's readings discover new layers of those accepted texts: Antigone is a Christological determine, struggling with Creon's ideology of the country by way of a folly of affection that leads her to a fondness during which she studies an abandonment just like that of Christ at the move. The Iliad depicts a global as but unredeemed, yet which strains objectively the reign of strength to which either oppressors and oppressed are topic. Prometheus certain turns into the automobile of her theodicy, within which she exhibits that affliction simply is smart in gentle of the go. however the top of the religious existence is defined in Electra which, she believes, displays a magical event - anything Weil herself had skilled by surprise while "Christ himself got here down and took her" in November 1938. in an effort to do justice to Weil's readings, Meaney not just lines her apologetic intentions and explains the style within which she recasts popular Christian recommendations (thereby permitting them to come alive - anything each stable apologist may be capable of do), but additionally situates them between common methods utilized by classicists this present day, thereby displaying that her interpretations really give a contribution whatever new.
