Sociolinguistics from the Periphery

By Sari Pietikäinen, Alexandra Jaffe, Helen Kelly-Holmes, Nik Coupland

Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users"

Summary:   A WHILE AGO I POSTED A QUERY ASKING ABOUT BILINGUAL PUNS, WHICH I LOOSELY
DEFINED AS 'PUNS BASED ON SIMILAR SOUNDING WORDS ACROSS TWO LANGUAGES.'
THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR THE GREAT EXAMPLES THAT YOU SENT ME.
I HAVE LEFT THE REPLIES UNEDITED (EXCEPT FOR SOME MINOR CHANGES IN
LAYOUT). I HAVE SIMPLY ORDERED THEM ALPHABETICALLY ACCORDING TO LANGUAGE
PAIRS INVOLVED, AND II HAVE ALSO ORDERED THE NAMES OF THE LANGUAGES IN EACH
PAIR ALPHABETICALLY. I'M NOT SURE IF THIS IS THE BEST WAY TO DO IT, BUT
IT'S THE BEST I COULD THINK OF.
I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE AS MUCH FUN WITH THESE EXAMPLES AS I DID.
