Crystal's Adventures in a Cockney Wonderland
By Lewis Carroll, translated into Cockney Rhyming Slang by Charlie Lovett
2015. ISBN 978-1-78201-115-6

Cockney Rhyming Slang, as anyone who has stood at the till in a London souvenir shop could tell you, is a set of slang expressions based on taking the original word (say, “stairs”) and rhyming it with the final word of a short phrase (“apples and pears”), and then, in some cases, shortening the new expression (“apples”). This can lead to a sentence such as: “Careful you don’t slip and fall down the apples”. While the slang is often cited as the “secret language” of the Cockney population of London, many of its expression have entered into general usage, not just in the UK, but throughout the English-speaking world. This is not a translation of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” in the purest sense. It is, rather, the result of a linguistic game—another sort of translation. What Charles Dodgson would have loved most about Cockney Rhyming Slang, and what makes it suited for application to “Alice”, is that it is, as John Ayto writes in his introduction to “The Oxford Dictionary of Rhyming Slang”, “all really part of a giant ongoing word game, whose product is much more droll artefact that linguists’ lexeme”. It is with this idea of Cockney Rhyming Slang as word game, and with the goal of creating “droll artefact”, that this translation has been approached.

“Alice” Condado aos Mais Pequenos
By Lewis Carroll, translated into Portuguese by Rogério Miguel Puga
2015. ISBN 978-1-78201-118-7

“Alice” Contada aos Mais Pequenos destina-se a crianças em idade pré-escolar, “dos zero aos cinco anos”. Com um total de cerca de 7 000 palavras, esta 'versão' é significativamente mais curta do que As Aventuras de Alice no Subsolo (15 500 palavras) e Alice no País das Maravilhas (27 500 palavras). A maior parte da narrativa consiste em interpelações do autor ao jovem ouvinte e em explicações sobre a história através de referências às ilustrações. O efeito dessa estratégia é cativante, sobretudo quando Carroll brinca com aspectos das ilustrações de Tenniel elegantemente coloridas. Curiosamente, nessas obras de arte, o vestido de Alice é amarelo e o avental branco, com um laço azul, mas actualmente a maioria dos artistas pinta o vestido de azul e branco.

The Nursery “Alice”
By Lewis Carroll
2015. Second edition, ISBN 978-1-78201-117-0

The Nursery “Alice” is intended for pre-school children “aged from Nought to Five”. Running to just under 7,000 words, it is considerably shorter than both Alice’s Adventures under Ground (15,500 words) and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (27,500 words). Much of the narrative consists of the author’s addressing the young listener, explaining the story by reference to the illustrations. The effect is rather charming, particularly where Carroll pokes fun at features in Tenniel’s illustrations. These were quite skilfully and attractively coloured. Interestingly, Tenniel coloured Alice’s dress yellow with a blue trim and white apron, whereas nowadays most artists colour the dress in blue and white only.

Balþos Gadedeis Aþalhaidais in Sildaleikalanda
By Lewis Carroll, translated into Gothic by David Alexander Carlton
2015. ISBN 978-1-78201-097-5

Gothic (Gutiska razda or Gutrazda) was a continental Germanic language spoken by the Visigoths and Ostrogoths in many areas (most notably Spain and Italy) throughout antiquity and the early Middle Ages; while Gothic appears to have become functionally extinct sometime in the eighth century, some form of the language may have continued to be spoken in the Crimea until the sixteenth or seventeenth century. The Gothic Bible, translated from a lost Greek exemplar sometime ca. 360 CE by the Gothic bishop Wulfila, represents the earliest substantive text in any Germanic language. Gothic itself remains the only significant representation of the East Germanic branch of languages, which have since died off completely. Other extant works in Gothic include an exegesis of the Gospel of John known as Skeireins, a partial calendar, and some minor fragments. Unfortunately, all extant texts are incomplete, so it remains unknown to what extent the extant fragments are written in idiomatic Gothic, as well as exactly what dialect of Gothic they might represent.

Alice’s Adventchers in Wunderland
By Lewis Carroll, translated into Scouse by Marvin R. Sumner
2015. ISBN 978-1-78201-107-1

“Scouse” is the name of the unique dialect of English spoken in Liverpool. It is a relatively new dialect, dating to the 19th century, showing some influence of speakers from England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland. The Beatles are perhaps the most famous speakers of Scouse, or at least the first speakers who came to public prominence outside the Liverpool region. This book contains a brief sketch of the orthographic principles used in presenting the Liver­pudlian dialect in this edition. The Scouse translation was first prepared by Marvin R. Sumner in 1990, and is now published for the first time in anticipation of the “Alice 150” celebra­tions being held this year.

Nosy Neighbours: Stories in Mennonite Low German and English
Nieschieaje Nohbasch: Jeschichte opp Plautdietsch enn Enjlisch

By Jack Thiessen.
2014. ISBN 978-1-78201-108-8

In addition to being the Samuel Johnson of Low German, a linguist nonpareil, and connoisseur of fine art and fine food, Jack Thiessen is a raconteur the way Mozart and John Driedger were musicians. The stories are simply there, and as they mature within him, he draws them up and releases them. Naturally they surface in the Low German dialect, and come garnished with humour. Like halvah and all fine things, they are best savoured slowly. – Jack Thiessen ess nich blooß dee mennischa Samuel Johnson, een Lexigraph sondajlitje, oba uck een resserietenda Feinschmatja enn Sache Konst enn goodet Äte, uck Latjabätjess jenannt.

Pride and Prejudice
By Jane Austen, with illustrations by Hugh Johnson
2015. ISBN 978-1-78201-094-4

Pride and Prejudice is the best known of Jane Austen’s six novels, and was first published in 1813. It is highly regarded for the acute description of its characters and because of its ironic style. The novel tells about the relation­ship which ensues when Elizabeth Bennet meets Mr Darcy. There are many notable characters in the novel, in particular beautiful and affectionate Jane, Elizabeth’s older sister; Mrs Bennet, their foolish mother; and their wild and unruly younger sister Lydia. The other memorable actors in the story include gentle and amiable Mr Bingley; Mr Wickam, the plausible scoundrel; William Collins, the ridiculous clergyman; and his appalling patronness, Lady Catherine de Bourgh.

In Perendinum Aevum: Carmina Latina
By Stephen Coombs
2015. ISBN 978-1-78201-106-4

Classical Latin poetry is capable of a beauty all its own. Its structure, derived from Greek precedents, is an orderly patterning of long and short syllables, sometimes quite simple, sometimes more complex. Across these metrical patterns the words scatter a play of varied phonetic stress and fall in place with a freedom, facilitated by the inflexional nature of the language, that can convey fine nuances of emphasis. As late as the sixth century Latin poets could still feel free to present new metrical arrangements of this kind. Later we find them either (as in the Middle Ages) adopting the rhyme and the stressed-based or syllable-counting rhythms to which we are used in the verse of modern European languages or (especially from the Renaissance onwards) aiming at fidelity to a restricted number of ancient models. In his flowingly expressive Latin poetry Stephen Coombs adheres to classical principles while often once again introducing novel metrical forms. With the vocabulary and imagery of Latin's history at its disposal his voice is nonetheless contemporary and driven by personal experience and conviction. The title of this collection means "into the era of the day after tomorrow".

Elucidating Alice: A Textual Commentary on Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
By Lewis Carroll, with an introduction and Notes by Selwyn Goodacre
2015. ISBN 978-1-78201-105-7

This textual commentary looks at Alice's Adventures in Wonderland quite simply, as a children’s novel, investigating the book’s narrative structure, analysing how Carroll successfully constructed a pioneer­ing book for children that was to stand the test of time, remaining remarkably relevant to the present day. There are many depths and subtleties in this book that can only be properly appreciated by examining the text line by line. The writing is supremely skilful, and will stand the closest scrutiny-even virtually to every line of the narrative. Most books would crumble under such close analysis. It is testimony to the strength, depth, and quality of Alice that the book comes through such intense examination and survives triumphantly. Selwyn Goodacre has a large Lewis Carroll collection includ­ing over 2000 copies of the Alice books. He is a past chair­man of the Lewis Carroll Society, and edited the Society journal from 1974-1997. For years he has pursued a special interest in the text of the Alice books, which has led to his current commentary on, and analysis of, the way they were written.

Di Avantures fun Alis in Vunderland
By Lewis Carroll, translated into Yiddish by Joan Braman
2015. ISBN 978-1-78201-063-0

The translator has avoided the temptation to make this translation a "Yiddishized" one, in which the characters live, move, and have their being in a now-vanished traditional Eastern European Jewish world. To do so would be an exercise in nostalgia and would, perhaps, deprive the original of its ageless, fairytale charm. For Alice's world is that of proper, middle class Victorian England, with its manners, morals, prejudices, and idiosyncrasies, and the world she visits is that same world turned on its head, so to speak. In the transliteration from Hebrew to Latin letters, this book makes use of the standardized spelling adopted in 1936 at a conference in Vilna sponsored by the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. Although there are no capital letters in Yiddish print or script, they are naturally required in a Romanization.

Ahlice’s Adveenturs in Wunderlaant
By Lewis Carroll, translated into Border Scots by Cameron Halfpenny
2015. ISBN 978-1-78201-087-6

This is the first translation into the Border Scots dialect of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Scots was at its peak as a European language of scholars in the 16th century, but its scope and influence has declined since English became Scotland's formal written language in the 17th century. Border Scots has subsequently become primarily an oral dialect, spoken by more than 100,000 people at home, work and play, but not regularly committed to paper for use in a formal context. Recognizing the oral nature of the dialect was an important step in deciding how this first translation of Alice was to be carried out. Border Scots differs from other Scots dialects in terms of its anglicized and unusual flat vowel pronunciations, earning it the moniker of the “yow an mei” dialect. There was an opportunity to echo this sound in the very name of Ahlice, where the drawn out and flattened first syllable acts as an aural clue to the deep timbre this dialect emits in its spoken form. To further achieve this aural effect the common Scots custom of dropping consonants at the end of words and syllables has also been deployed. In particular, applying it to the progressive participle ending -ing to make it -in flattens the sound to a more authentic Borders’ pitch. Elliot Cowan Smith observed nearly a century ago that the Borders dialect will “pass gradually into oblivion” if its spirit is allowed to be lost. It is hoped that the publication of Ahlice’s Adveenturs in Wunderlaant will kindle the spirit and confidence to record the dialect in print more widely, and establish a future role for it in the development of Borders life.

A Wreck upon the Ocean: Cornish Folklore in the Age of the Industrial Revolution
By Brendan McMahon.
2015. ISBN 978-1-78201-098-2

In the nineteenth century the small nation of Cornwall underwent profound social and economic change. It became one of the first European regions to industrialize, and exported tin and copper to the world, along with the engineers and miners who extracted them. But bust followed boom, and emigration became high. Mortality rates and famine took their toll on a small community which had recently lost its language and was struggling to maintain its identity in the face of growing encroachment from across the Tamar. In the 1840s, driven by a growing sense that modernity was driving out the old folkways and beliefs, two Cornish scholars, Robert Hunt and William Bottrell, began to collect the ancient Celtic stories of pisgies, mermaids, and giants which had been passed down by generations of fisherfolk and tinners since time immemorial in the far west. Though many stories must have been lost with the passing of the Cornish language, those that survived enabled the community to articulate its sense of loss, and its anxieties about identity.

Alice’s Ventures in Wunderland
By Lewis Carroll, translated into Cornu-English by Alan M. Kent
2015. ISBN 978-1-78201-102-6

Cornu-English is that form of English spoken by the majority of native residents in Cornwall. It has also spread overseas to be spoken in areas of the world where Cornish migrants lived and worked-in such diverse locations as Australia, the United States of America, New Zealand, Mexico and South Africa. It may be said to be one of three major linguistic groups operating within Cornwall, a Celtic territory in the west of the island of the Britain. The three are Cornish, English and Cornu-English. Within Cornu-English, it is necessary to point out that although the broad vocabulary and grammar remain the same there are some variations in accent. These can be graded from east to west, and from north to south. In general, the accent in the west of Cornwall (in West Penwith, in particular) has remained quite distinctive, with some observers believing this is because of the later persistence of the Cornish language there. This edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is translated with a nod towards the Cornu-English accent of mid Cornwall; in particular that found in the working-class china-clay mining villages to the north of St Austell. This accent and locate remain interesting because for many years there were perceived as not being as picturesque as others parts of Cornwall, and so received less immigration and loss of Cornu-English speakers.

By Lewis Carroll, Illustrated by John Tenniel
2014. ISBN 978-1-78201-083-8

The International Phonetic Alphabet is a system of phonetic notation based primarily on the Latin alphabet. It was devised by the International Phonetic Association as a standardized represen­tation of the sounds of spoken language. The IPA is used by lexicographers, foreign language students and teachers, linguists, speech-language pathologists, singers, actors, constructed language creators, and translators. This edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is written entirely in that same alphabet, with fonts specially designed by Michael Everson.

An Fhondúireacht
By Isaac Asimov, translated into Irish by Panu Petteri Höglund, with illustrations by Mathew Staunton.
2012. ISBN 978-1-78201-080-7

Is é Hari Seldon an matamaiticeoir is mó le rá ar fud Bhealach na Bó Finne, agus é tar éis an mhatamaitic, an tsíceolaíocht agus an scríobh staire a chumasc in aon bhrainse réabhlóideach eolaíochta - an tSíceastaraíocht, a cheadaíos dó todhchaí an chine dhaonna a oibriú amach roimh ré. Is é is toradh dá chuid taighde, áfach, go bhfuil Impireacht na Bó Finne, an impireacht shaibhir shíochánta a chuimsíos an réaltra go léir, le titim as a chéile roimh i bhfad, agus cogaí beaga suaracha idir ríthe cúigiúla agus tiarnaí áitiúla le teacht in áit na sean-bhuansíochána. Caithfidh Seldon Fondúireacht a bhunú ag ceann an réaltra le hoidhreacht na heolaíochta a thabhairt slán trí chéadta bliain na barbarthachta. Tháinig na scéalta faoi Phlean Seldon agus faoin bhFondúireacht i gcló an chéad uair sna 1940idí ar an iris Astounding Science Fiction, agus foilsíodh faoi chlúdach leabhair iad sna 1950idí. Fuair a lán scríbhneoirí ficsin eolaíochta inspioráid ó na scéalta seo ó shin i leith, agus is cuid de dhúshraith an tseánra iad inniu. Mar sin tá sé thar am iad a chur ar fáil as Gaeilge.

Alison’s Jants in Ferlieland
By Lewis Carroll, translated into West-Central Scots by James Andrew Begg
2014. ISBN 978-1-78201-084-5

Lewis Carroll is the pen-name o Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, the screiver o Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, an a lecturer in Mathematics at Christ Church, Oxford. Dodgson stertit his famous bairns’ tale on 4 July 1862, when, on a bonny simmer’s efternuin, he tuik a lang jant in a rowin boat on the Thames Watter in Oxford, alangside his freen the Reverend Robinson Duckworth, Alice Liddell (ten year-auld) the dochter o the Dean o Christ Church, an her twae sisters, Lorina (aged thirteen), an Edith (juist aicht). Frae the poem at the stert o the buik, it’s plain that thae three wee lassies threipt on at puir Mr Dodgson tae tell thaim a tale. Tho sweirt at the stert, he wycely gied in, an by the en o their day oot, he had gethert thegither the makins o an awfy guid splore aboot a steirin wee lass caad Alice. Spreid richt throu the feenishd wark, furst-published in 1865, are a wheen hauf-hidden references tae the five folk on that boat on that happy day.

Alice’s Mishanters in e Land o Farlies
By Lewis Carroll, translated into Caithness Scots by Catherine Byrne
2014. ISBN 978-1-78201-060-9

To tackle a translation of the first book into the Caithness dialect of Scots was a challenge. Catherine Byrne met it by imagining how her mother, reading the book aloud, would have sounded—“hearing my mother’s voice in my head”, as she put it in an e-mail to this writer. The result is engaging and amusing, and those familiar with the Caithness accent will recognize the achievement at once. James Miller has outlined the history and the main characteristics of the dialect in the essay written for Jon Lindseth’s accompanying volume on translations. Suffice it to say here that Caithness dialect is a form of Scots but has some unique features that reflect the cultural and political geography of the north of Scotland in the Middle Ages when the county was a frontier zone, the area where Norse and Gaelic societies met.This conjunction has left its mark on place-names and on the common speech of the inhabitants. .

Fluttering their way into my head: An introduction to Haiku for young people
By Gabriel Rosenstock, translated into English by Gabriel Rosenstock and Mícheál Ó hAodha, and illustrated by Mathew Staunton.
2014. ISBN 978-1-78201-088-3

What do we allow into our hearts and heads? - "fluttering their way / into my head... / plum blossoms" - The great haiku master Issa wrote over 20,000 haiku, little masterpieces of kindness, wonderful caring observations of the natural world around him. Birds, frogs, butterflies, fleas, insects, snow, all entered his heart and head from season to season: - "The small crow / is snubbed / geese in the rice field" - There's fun to be found here and excitement- in the littlest things. Open your heart and open your head to the incredible world of haiku.

A Book of Cookery for dressing of Several Dishes of Meat and making of Several Sauces and Seasoning for Meat or Fowl
By Hannah Alexander
2014. ISBN 978-1-78201-074-6

Almost forgotten at the back of a drawer for generations, Hannah Alexander’s Book of Cookery—which was first penned in Dublin in the late seventeenth century—has finally made it into print.

This recipe book is more than just a delightful foray into the dining habits of the Irish of times gone by. It is an important social history docu­ment that provides an abundance of information about Ireland’s import trade, the Irish culinary imagination, and one of the few ways in which the increasing number of literate women of the time expressed themselves: by writing about the foods, special treats, drinks, and home remedies they prepared for their families and friends.

Las Aventuras de Alisia en el Paiz de las Maraviyas
By Lewis Carroll, translated into Ladino by Avner Perez
2014. ISBN 978-1-78201-061-6

Lewis Carroll es un psevdonimo: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson era el nombre real del autor i el era profesor de matematika en Christ Church, Oxford. Dodgson empeso el kuento el 4 de djulio de 1862, kuando viajo en una barka de remos en el rio Thames en Oxford djunto kon el reverendo Robinson Duckworth, kon Alice Liddell (diez anyos de edad) la ija del dekano de Christ Church, i kon sus dos ermanas, Lorina (tredje anyos de edad), i Edith (ocho anyos de edad). Komo lo vemos klaramene en el poema al prinsipio del livro, las tres djovenas pidieron a Dodgson ke les kontara un kuento; i sin gana, al prinsipio, este empeso a kontarles la primera version del kuento. En el livro ke finalmente fue publikado en 1865, existen munchas referensias a estos sinko personajes, ke aparesen medio-eskondidas a lo largo de todo el teksto.

By Lewis Carroll, Illustrated by John Tenniel, Foreword by John H. Jenkins
2014. ISBN 978-1-78201-064-7

The Deseret alphabet was developed in the mid-19th century by the board of regents of the University of Deseret (later the University of Utah) under the direction of Brigham Young, second president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It was intended to help make learning to write English easier. This wasn’t very successful, though the alphabet does have interesting phonemic features, as well as being a fascinating part of Mormon history. This edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland is written entirely in that same alphabet, with fonts specially designed by John H. Jenkins and Michael Everson.
