The Loom of Language: A Guide to Foreign Languages for the Home Student

Hugely, hugely, hugely recommended.

this could be the top booklet i've got obvious for the layman or starting linguist on language acquisition. the writer has a valid case to make during this book--for the institution of a global language--but this can be the point of interest of a truly small portion of this e-book. realizing his aim is sooner or later, the majority of Bodmer's publication specializes in the similarities and transformations among Teutonic and Romance languages that ease the educational of a number of languages. ahead of introducing thematically prepared poly-lingual wordlists, Bodmer info the sound shifts and morphological alterations within the languages in super transparent language.

Here is the assessment that led me to this text:
http://ielanguages. com/blog/the-loom-of-language-an-approach-to-the-mastery-of-many-languages/

The Loom of Language: An method of the Mastery of Many Languages through Frederick Bodmer has constantly been my favourite booklet approximately studying languages. I first found it on F. X. Micheloud’s studying Languages website approximately nine or 10 years in the past whilst i used to be nonetheless an undergrad and masses extra attracted to studying languages alone instead of taking uninteresting sessions at collage. i wished to profit worthwhile vocabulary and concentration extra on realizing and talking the language whereas my sessions sought after me to research Zola or Sand with very restricted wisdom of French. Or my periods have been cancelled simply because now not adequate scholars signed up for German or simply because there have been no lecturers on hand for Italian. My language books (all 500 of them) and later the net grew to become the most assets I utilized in learning, yet I constantly went again to The Loom of Language since it defined every little thing so well.

It is the single publication that really teaches languages rather than easily instructing the right way to research languages. There are a number of books and assets on hand for that already. i used to be in particular searching for anything that in comparison ecu languages and gave me the principles and phrases had to study the languages – to not know about the languages. initially written within the 1940′s, it's evidently superseded in a few components – the quote “1,800 million humans in this globe converse nearly 1,500 varied languages” is so very unsuitable this present day – yet it’s nonetheless the simplest publication for multilingual beginners to get an summary of Latin and Germanic grammar and vocabulary.

The first a part of the booklet begins with the heritage of human language and alphabets and leads into morphology and syntax of a number of languages, and ends with the category of languages during the international. the second one half makes a speciality of studying vocabulary (from the given lists) benefiting from similarities between languages and sound shifts that reason predictable adjustments from one language to a different. What I consistently chanced on most crucial, notwithstanding, was once the statement for you to research definite phrases first, reminiscent of own pronouns, auxiliary verbs, demonstratives, prepositions, conjunctions, and so on. (essentially functionality phrases) simply because they're the most typical and least recognizable once they swap cases.

Many nouns, adjectives and verbs should still come after the functionality phrases simply because they're prone to be famous due to universal affixes between comparable languages and “international” phrases equivalent to mobile or taxi, and likewise simply because those concrete phrases are hugely depending on the placement. Bodmer’s instance of a Dane who learns the note rabbit in a single of his first English classes yet who may well by no means speak about rodents of any variety for 10 years relatively illustrates the necessity to examine the functionality and summary phrases first, or no less than to concentration instantly at the phrases that you'll want looking on why you're studying the language.

Bodmer additionally encourages inexperienced persons to “get a bird’s-eye view of the grammatical peculiarities of a language earlier than attempting to memorize anything” and not to waste time on memorizing case endings of nouns or adjectives until eventually a examining wisdom of the language is accomplished. so much textbooks don’t consider this as they introduce instances and declensions early on in order that scholars are meant to memorize the endings prior to they even research many nouns or adjectives. Bodmer’s procedure is predicated on attractiveness and enter of invaluable vocabulary first, and later in depth analyzing and writing to excellent the grammar, which looks the other of yes books.

He additionally states “If you study basically ten new phrases of the gang including debris, pronouns, and pointer phrases each day for a fortnight, you may have at your disposal at the least 25 in line with cent of the whole variety of phrases you employ if you happen to write a letter. in case you have performed this, you will need to have a small vocabulary of crucial nouns, adjectives, and verbs prepared to be used. ” All of this crucial vocabulary he's concerning is integrated behind the publication in different lists that evaluate English, French, Spanish, Portuguese & Italian and English, Swedish, Danish, Dutch & German. Sound time-honored? those “basic vocabularies” have been the foundation for developing my very own multilingual lists and result in the Romance and Germanic Vocabulary & Verbs pages that i'm nonetheless operating on.

The 3rd a part of the booklet supplies info on different languages in additional aspect, together with non-Indo-European and developed languages and leads right into a dialogue on language making plans and a “true Interlingua” that may be “a passport to a much wider foreign tradition. ” The final paragraph continues to be proper at the present time, even though written in the course of WWII.

“Of itself, no such switch can carry the age-long calamity of struggle to an finish; and it's a risky blunders to conceive that it may possibly accomplish that. we won't wish to arrive a therapy for the language stumbling blocks to overseas co-operation on a democratic footing, whereas predatory finance capital, intrigues or armament brands, and the vested curiosity of a rentier category within the distress of colonial peoples proceed to stifle the impulse to a world-wide company for the typical wealth of mankind. No language reform can abolish conflict, whereas social enterprises way more robust than mere linguistic misunderstandings provide clean celebration for it. What clever language making plans can do is to forge a brand new device for human collaboration on a planetary scale, whilst social associations propitious to overseas strife now not thwart the optimistic job of making plans healthiness, relaxation and many for all. ”

Language, tradition and politics continually were hooked up and doubtless constantly can be. the govt. of Belgium simply collapsed (again! ) due to tensions among French and Flemish audio system and the French-English tensions in Quebec has an extended background to boot. Hispanics within the US are discriminated opposed to simply because they don't converse English good sufficient or by no means although the USA has no reliable language. Montenegro calls its language Montenegrin notwithstanding it really is really one other dialect of the now defunct Serbo-Croatian language that still comprises Croatian, Bosnian and Serbian as the Balkan states should have their very own “standardized” language so one can be eligible for european membership.

Interestingly, WWII and the Balkan wars within the 90′s have been what inspired me to begin studying languages within the first position. i needed to learn the unique files and journals and newspapers and check out to appreciate why wars occur and the place the hatred for different people comes from. There are nonetheless a number of armed conflicts occurring around the world, and the racist propaganda opposed to immigrants in numerous international locations, together with either my domestic and followed nations, is what retains me studying languages – in order that sooner or later i will be able to aid these immigrants, and particularly refugees, comply with their new lives and struggle opposed to the discrimination. possibly i'm a bleeding-heart liberal by way of the underprivileged (especially the terrible who tend to be immigrants) yet rampant inequality between teams of individuals is heart-breaking to me; or even even though it sounds trite and clichéd, I nonetheless think that studying overseas languages performs a wide half in making the realm a greater position.
