Country called Somalia: Culture, Language and Society of a Vanishing State

De
Publié par

This book comprises papers dealing with a number of subjects that can provide a comprehensive picture of a life-time project and concern. In particular, Section I is concerned with "Linguistic investigations and comparative issues": the link between naming system and social organization, the semantic values of the imperfective aspect, the morphosyntactic properties of relative clauses and determiners, phonological analysis and related theoretical considerations. The authors of Section II ("Essays on society and culture"), on the other hand, concentrate on diverse subjects, such as children's games, law and tradition, the social role of Somali women with respect to feminist values and immigration problems, teaching and transcultural drawbacks.

Qalinkaa wax suureeya Kugu sima halkaad doonto, Saaxiib kal furan weeye, Sunto fara ku hayntiisa, Weligaa ha sii deynin. “Sahra” – M. I. W. Hadraawi This volume is not simply a collection of papers that happen to be published together on the occasion of a Festschrift. This work is the outcome of a real desire: the desire to celebrate Annarita Puglielli for what she means as a linguist, as a project leader and, most of all, as a person. For years I have nurtured this plan in my heart, and I could not even imagine that such a volume might not exist one day. So here it is and, I must say, its production was really a pleasure for me. It was a pleasure to picture it in my mind: its title, sections, format, cover, colours, everything. In this respect, it was a privilege to work with Elisa Pelizzari and the L’Harmattan publishing company. She liked my project, supported it from the very beginning and helped me with her invaluable suggestions. My greatest thanks go to her. It was a pleasure to contact the (prospect) contributors, selected from those friends I have in common with Annarita in the ‘Somali project’. People I knew who had met Annarita at different times and places, studying with her, working with her, sharing projects and dreams, travelling together around the world. It was a joy for me to receive their enthusiastic accept-ance, even their gratitude. Eleven contributors – quite a few, one might say. Of necessity a strict selection for which I am fully responsible, I must confess. They have all been friendly, collaborative and (mostly!) punctual in submitting their papers. I thank them all! 9
Annarita’s interest for Somalia and the Somali people has ranged over different aspects of social life and linguistic inves-tigation. This is the reason whyA Country Called Somalia: the Culture, Language and Society of a Vanishing Statecomprises papers dealing with a number of subjects that can provide a comprehensive picture of a life-time project and concern. In particular, Section I is concerned with «Linguistic investiga-tions and comparative issues»: the link between naming sys-tem and social organization (Roberto Ajello), the semantic val-ues of the imperfective aspect (Lucyna Gebert), the mor-phosyntactic properties of relative clauses and determiners (Giorgio Banti, John Saeed), phonological analysis and related theoretical considerations (Marco Svolacchia). The authors of Section II («Essays on society and culture»), on the other hand, concentrate on diverse subjects, such as children’s games (Barbara Turchetta), law and tradition (Abdalla Omar Mansur), the social role of Somali women with respect to feminist val-ues (Cristina Ali Farah) and immigration problems (Gianfranco Tarsitani with Abdulaziz Sharif Aden, Halima Mohamed Nur and Ranieri Guerra), teaching and transcultural drawbacks (Milena Bandiera, Massimo Squillacciotti), also making specific reference to Annarita’s personal engagement and activity in Somalia. Other people also contributed to this volume, in different ways. I’m referring here to Peter Douglas and Giorgio Testa, who checked the English of authors who asked me to, and to Francesca Ramaglia who read the papers checking for typos, cross-references and formatting. Their help was invaluable to me. Thanks, my friends! A special mention in this foreword must go to the Director of theCentro Linguistico di Ateneo(‘Language Centre’) of Roma Tre, Professor Vincenzo Zeno Zencovich, who sponsored this volume. It was delightful to have his appreciation of my initia-tive and obtain his immediate positive answer to my request. I truly and deeply thank him (and the Institution he represents). Finally, I wish to thank Annarita for having filled my heart 10
