Studies in Language and Capitalism

For those who tire of reading sociobiological explanations of language check out this article by Marnie Holborow.

Putting The Social Back Into Language: Marx, Volosinov and Vygotsky

In other items of interest:

"In a speech, President JF Kennedy said that if only Karl Marx "had remained a foreign correspondent, history might have been different". How wrong he was, argues Christopher Hitchens. Much of Marx's writing during his years as a hack was a passionate defence of the values that were to inform his political philosophy."

At The Seaside

(1)

When I was down beside the sea

A wooden spade they gave to me

To dig the sandy shore.

(2)

The holes were empty like a cup

In every hole the sea camp up,

Till it could come no more.
