Book Description
Questions related to the origin and history of the Basque language spark considerable interest, since it is the only surviving pre-Indo-European language in western Europe. However, until now, there was no readily available source in English providing answers to these questions or giving an overview of past and current research in this area. This book is intended to partly fill this void. The book contains both state-of-the-art papers which summarize our knowledge about particular areas of Basque historical linguistics, and articles presenting new hypotheses and points of view based on hard evidence and careful analysis. All contributors to this volume have demonstrated expertise in the topic within Basque historical linguistics that their chapter addresses. Two classical articles by the late Luis Michelena are included in English translation. In addition, the book includes studies on diachronic phonology, morphology and syntax. The relation of Basque to other languages is also investigated in a couple of chapters.

Book Description
Nine specialists give us their analyses and diagnoses of the legal status of language planning and of the current situation of the Basque language in its homeland and abroad. Articles detail contemporary legal cases, laws, government policies and programs both in Euskal Herria and in the Basque diaspora that hinder or help the living Basque language, Euskara. Language coexistence in Canada is highlighted as a comparative reference.

Book Description
This regional dossier aims to provide concise, descriptive information and basic educational statistics about minority language education in a specific region of the European Union--the Basque country of northern Spain. Aspects that are addressed include features of the education system, recent educational policies, main actors, legal arrangements, and support structures, as well as quantitative aspects, such as the number of schools, teachers, pupils, and financial investments. This kind of information can serve several purposes and can be relevant for policymakers, researchers, teachers, students, and journalists. They can also use this Regional dossier as a first orientation towards further research or as a source of ideas for improving educational provisions in their own region. The subject of this dossier is Basque or "euskara," a non-Indo-European isolate language. The area where Basque has traditionally been spoken is called "Euskal Herria," the Basque Country. Since the late nineteenth century this name has been applied to an area comprising seven historical provinces: four in Spain (Araba/Alava, Bizkaia/Vizcaya (in English, Biscay), Gipuzkoa/Guipuzcoa and Nafarroa/Navarra (in English, Navarre)) sometimes collectively called "Hegoalde," the southern Basque Country, and three in France (Lapurdi/Labourd, Nafarroa Beherea/Basse Navarre and Zuberoa/Soule), collectively "Iparralde," the North Basque Country. This dossier discusses the situation in the southern or peninsular Basque Country. "Hegoalde" occupies about 17,800 km in northern Spain on the Bay of Biscay. A separate dossier discusses the situation of Basque in education in the French or continental part of the Basque Country ("The Basque language in education in France, Mercator-Education, 1998"). a glossary is included. (Contains 8 tables and 7 endnotes.) [Additional funding for this paper was provided by the Province of Fryslan and the municipality of Leeuwarden. For 2000 edition, "Basque: The Basque Language in Education in Spain. Regional Dossiers Series," see ed452720.].

Book Description
As the only surviving pre-Indo-European language of western Europe, Basque has often attracted the interest of linguists. Whereas, traditionally, descriptive work on Basque has primarily focused on morphological features, including its complex system of verb-argument agreement and its strict ergative pattern of inflection, during the last two decades a new generation of Basque linguists has produced very sophisticated, theoretically-informed work on many aspects of the syntax, morphology and phonology of the language, revealing, for instance, a process of focalization with many interesting properties and the existence in some dialects of an accentual system strikingly similar to that of standard Japanese. The book, bringing together this accumulated knowledge on the structure of Basque, is considerably more complete than any other existing grammar of the language. Another interesting feature of this grammar is that the description is illustrated with fully-glossed examples extracted from a great number of written sources. Although the focus is the modern standard language, dialectal features are considered in detail and examples are taken from all dialects and periods.

They can also use this Regional dossier as a first orientation towards further research or as a source of ideas for improving educational provisions in their own region. The subject of this dossier is Basque, or "Euskara," a language completely surrounded by Indo-European languages and yet it is totally different. Nowadays, the area where Basque is spoken is called "Euskal Herri" or Basque Country. This area comprises seven historical provinces, four in Spain (Araba/Alava, Bizkaia/Vizcaya, Gipuzkoa/Guipuzcoa and Nafarroa/Navarra) called Southern Basque country or Hegoalde, and three in France (Lapurdi/Labourd, Nafarroa Beherea/Basse Navarre and Zuberoa/Soule). This dossier discusses the situation of the Northern Basque country or Iparralde. Iparralde occupies about two fifths (3,060 km) of the French "departement" Pyrenees-Atlantiques. (Contains 2 tables and 7 endnotes.) [Additional funding for this paper was provided by the Province of Fryslan and the municipality of Leeuwarden.
