The Mom Egg     

2013 Vol. 11

MOTHER TONGUE

In this issue The Mom Egg explores the nuances of Mother Tongue. Mothers are emissaries and guardians of language. A mother murmurs to her infant son. Mother’s words hold power to hurt or heal. A new immigrant struggles to learn English, later generations, to cling to remnants of language and culture. Mother Tongue speaks out. Mother Tongue has been silenced—and freed. Mother Tongue names. Mother Tongue tastes and plays. A must-read for mothers and lovers of language, this collection will challenge, delight and inspire.
