Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The lexicon of Japanese contains a large number of conventional mimetic words which vividly depict sounds, manners of action, states of mind etc. These words are notable for their distinctive syntactic properties, for the strikingly patterned way in which they exploit sound-symbolic correspondences, and for the copiousness of their use in conversation as well as in many written registers of Japanese.

Examples created by the editors are accompanied by thousands of contextualized, referenced examples from published sources to illustrate the alternative meanings of each mimetic form. All examples appear in Japanese orthography, in romanization, and in English translation. Concise information is provided concerning the varieties of syntactic usage appropriate for each mimetic. An extensive English index facilitates comparison of English and Japanese vocabulary.

Book excerpt: The war is over between the neighboring realms of Canderis and Marchmont. But another and perhaps far deadlier battle still rages on. The discovery that Marchmont is home to the Resonants—men and women gifted with the ability to read and control the minds of others—has badly shaken the people of Canderis. For while they value their own Seekers—humans who empathically bond with the catlike ghatti to read truth—they are deathly afraid of the rogue Resonants known as Gleaners. And their fears are well-founded, for one faction of Gleaners has for years preyed upon the innocent and defenseless, transforming those around them into mindless, soulless slaves. And even as Seeker Jenret under takes a mission to find the Resonants of Canderis and bring them to safety, Seeker Doyce is about to embark on a far different path—a ghatti-led journey into the past. For as a new vigilantes’ reign of terror threatens the lives of Seekers and Resonants alike, the secrets of that long-ago time when the first Seeker-ghatti Bond was formed may hold the only hope for the future…

Book The Dragon Pearl Series  Books 1 8

Download or read book The Dragon Pearl Series Books 1 8 written by J F Mehentee and published by P in C Publishing. This book was released on 2023-05-10 with total page 1531 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: One mistake. Five lives. A universe in chaos. Inspired by Asian and Middle Eastern mythologies, The Dragon Pearl Series box set contains six novellas whose interconnected stories determine the fate of a universe in the novels Tamuda Rising and The Four-Day War. Packed with adventure, this complete 1400-page series is perfect for readers of epic fantasy. Book 1 - Hotsuka’s Story Banished from Heaven and no longer a Celestial, Hotsuka must adapt to his new life as the monk, Gaurang. Can he rescue his newborn son who’s destined to change the universe? Not everyone, however, wants change. Book 2 - Barid’s Story Barid, a once-elite warrior turned blacksmith, despised and ridiculed by villagers, waits for Noor: a man whom he’d die for; a man who may already be dead. When Gaurang arrives and promises the villagers a miracle, Barid must decide whether to remain a blacksmith or put his past and Noor behind him. Book 3 - Omid’s Story If he’s to save the Empire, Omid, the emperor’s sickly son, must complete Gaurang’s undertaking: to forge a sword so light and sharp it will cut a falling leaf. With a Dragoness out to sabotage the undertaking, can Omid complete the task in time, or will he plunge the Empire and the Dragonfolk back into endless war? Book 4 - Madhuri’s Story Captured by the nomadic Tamuda, Madhuri receives two gifts from a snake spirit. Thanks to the first gift, she is betrothed to the charismatic Chuluun. As Madhuri settles into her new life, she discovers her presence endangers the entire Tamuda nation. When the spirit’s second gift reveals itself, Madhuri realises she must sacrifice everything, including Chuluun. Book 5 - Babak’s Story Half-human and half-monkey, Babak befriends Kunie, the emperor’s daughter. Infatuated, he wants to be a guardsman and, one day, Kunie’s personal bodyguard. But Babak was born to serve a greater purpose. How will he react when he learns his commitment to Kunie and his destiny are not one and the same thing? Book 6 - Shernaz’s Story Abandoned by her husband, Shernaz is rescued by the Queen of Patalama and given a Dragon pearl. Thanks to the pearl, Shernaz enjoys prolonged youth and the independence she always dreamed of. When the pearl loses its power, obtaining a second carries a dreadful price. Book 7 – Tamuda Rising The Tamuda nation gathers and prepares for war. The Takeo Sura, a cabal of disgruntled Dragons, use deceit, cunning and murder to create chaos before the invading horde reaches the Imperial Fortress. While a desperate group of guardsmen try to hinder the Tamuda’s advance, the Fortress prepares for a siege. The Takeo Sura, however, have other ideas. In Tamuda Rising, the storylines for Gaurang, Barid, Omid, Kunie, Babak and Shernaz converge. Each has a role in determining the fate of the Empire and ultimately the universe. Book 8 – The Four-day War As the Tamuda battle their way into the Imperial Fortress, the Takeo Sura hamper the Empire’s attempts to defend itself. With Gaurang missing and news Babak has sided with the Tamuda, Kunie’s first days as empress are fraught. Meanwhile, Lady Shinju and the Meijin Council arrive on the Dragon Isles. Like Lord Takeo, she’s prepared for a four-day war, the outcome of which will decide the fate of humans, Dragons and gods alike. The Four-Day War is the eighth and final instalment in the Dragon Pearl Series.

Download or read book The Novels of the Jaran written by Kate Elliott and published by Open Road Media. This book was released on 2013-11-18 with total page 2903 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: All four novels in the saga of a young woman caught between a rebellious nomadic people and their alien oppressors: “Truly an epic masterpiece” (SF Site). In Jaran, the Earth of the future is just one of the planets ruled by the vast Chapalii empire. The volatility of these alien overlords is something with which Tess Soerensen is all too familiar. Her brother, Charles, rebelled against them and was rewarded by being elevated into their interstellar system. Struggling to find her place in the world, Tess sneaks aboard a shuttle bound for Rhui, one of her brother’s planets. On the ground, she joins up with the native jaran people, becoming immersed in their nomadic society and customs. As she grows ever closer to the charismatic jaran ruler, Ilya—who is inflamed by an urgent mission of his own—Tess must choose between her feelings for him and her loyalty to her brother. In An Earthly Crown, the nomadic tribes of the jaran are uniting the settled cities of their homeland one by one. Their charismatic leader, Ilya Bakhtiian, has his loyal wife by his side, but there is something about her he doesn’t know: Tess Soerensen is a human. Back home, her brother, Charles, led an unsuccessful revolt against the all-powerful Chapalii empire. Charles’s insistence that Tess join him is as strong as Ilya’s reluctance to part with his beloved wife—and neither considers that Tess may have her own plans for the future. As three fiercely independent spirits struggle for a solution, the fates of both the human race and the jaran hang in the balance. In His Conquering Sword, the jaran have been taking over towns and bending all non-jaran to the law of their rule. With Ilya Bakhtiian in charge, the nomadic fighters are now preparing an assault on the royal city of Karkand. But within the campaign, another struggle looms. Charles, the brother of Ilya’s wife, Tess, is still driven by thoughts of revolt. Charles travels to Rhui for key information about the past, hoping to bring back his sister—his only heir. And in The Law of Becoming, Charles Soerensen’s revolutionary inclinations have been reignited. In this final book, the story of Tess, Ilya, and Charles comes to its stunning conclusion as new generations get involved in the intrigue, Earth’s exiled jaran people resurface, and the Chapalii overlords make one last, unexpected move.

Book Politics and Constitutions in Southeast Asia

Download or read book Politics and Constitutions in Southeast Asia written by Marco Bünte and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-07-15 with total page 342 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In recent years the constitutional landscape of Southeast Asia has changed tremendously. Against a worldwide background of liberalization, globalization, and democratization, states in the region have begun to alter their constitutions, reinforcing human rights provisions, and putting in place institutional safeguards, such as constitutional courts and human rights commissions. On closer examination, however, the picture is very complex, with constitutional developments differing greatly between states. This book explores a range of current constitutional developments in the different states of Southeast Asia through a distinct political lens. Drawing on comparative and single case studies, it considers various constitutional areas, including constitution drafting, human rights, legal safeguards and the continuing role of the military, sets constitutional developments in the wider political and historical context of each country, and makes comparisons both with Western democracies and with other developing regions. The book concludes by assessing overall how far constitutional practices and trajectories are converging towards a liberal Western model or towards a distinctly Southeast Asian model.
