John Benjamins Publishing presents a new book:

Speaking in Other Voices. An ethnography of Walloon puppet theaters.
Joan GROSS (Oregon State University)

Pragmatics & Beyond NS 91
2001. xxviii, 341 pp. Hardcover

Rest of world: 90 272 5110 X / EUR 98.00

Linking actual instances of language use with structures of social power in 
francophone Belgium, Gross outlines the history and contemporary 
configuration of rod puppetry in Li�ge. The analysis of this working class 
performance art moves between what occurs on and off stage. As puppeteers 
speak in other voices, sometimes in Walloon and sometimes in French, they 
create a sociolinguistic model based on 19th century renditions of medieval 
texts, the voices of past puppeteers, and the language that surrounds them. 
The high level of linguistic reflexivity created by the regional language 
movement has led to frequent metalinguistic and metapragmatic commentaries 
within the puppet shows. This complex speech genre embedded in social 
context shows the influence of identity struggles: from local class 
oppositions to imperial designs abroad. Keeping a tight focus on language, 
"Speaking in Other Voices" examines the process of entextualization and 
recontextualization as stories of war and religion are transmitted to 
succeeding generations.
