Cross-Cultural Communication in Foreign Language Discourse

8007 руб.
The book that Dr. Mohammed Guamguami has completed is impressive in both its scope and its aim. The teaching of English as a foreign language, or any foreign language for that matter, is an especially vexed endeavor. As Dr. Guamguami points out, the need for linking culture to foreign language teaching has been recognized since the 1990s, since language and culture are deeply intertwined, and therefore, teaching a foreign language in a cultural vacuum leaves students with an abstract system of signifiers without an adequate understanding of their signifieds. The difficulty, then, lies in understanding the dynamic of the relationship between language and culture and how to exploit it for teaching foreign language with improved effectiveness. Dr. Guamguami's book investigates this problem and, through extensive research and careful analysis, points to possible solutions. The key to solving this problem, Dr. Guamguami contends, is to recognize the discursive nature of language and culture and to view their interrelatedness in the dialogic sense.

The language contact situation in Nigeria has rubbed off on the languages within the ethnic and tribal groups. The influence of English language is evident in the language situation in Nigeria. Local varieties have been realized as a result of code-mixing and switching of bilinguals within different speech communities in Nigeria. English as the official language in Nigeria has continued to play diverse roles. It is the language of education, government, administration, commerce, journalism, legislative and international deliberations; it lives alongside other Nigerian languages, interacts with them and adapts itself to the Nigerian environment. This interaction with Nigerian languages; Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba etc. led to pidginization, nativization and acculturation of English. Igbo language and culture has also influenced the English language. This book is a purview of the speech behavior of the educated Igbo -bilinguals who may not be able to speak Igbo language without code switching or mixing of English language. The speech behavior of the educated-Igbo bilinguals has raised a lot of criticism.

Contemporary Critical Discourse Studies

3167 руб.
Critical discourse studies is a multifarious field constantly developing different methodological frameworks for dynamically analysing evolving aspects of language in a broad range of socio-political and institutional contexts. This volume is a cutting-edge, interdisciplinary account of these theoretical and empirical developments. It presents an up-to-date survey of critical discourse studies (CDS), covering both the theoretical landscape and the analytical territories that it extends over. It is intended for critical scholars and students who wish to keep abreast of the current state of the art. The book is divided into two parts. In the first part, the chapters are organised around different methodological perspectives for CDS (history, cognition, multimodality and corpora, among others). In the second part, the chapters are organised around particular discourse types and topics investigated in CDS, both traditionally (e.g. issues of racism and gender inequality) and only more recently (e.g. issues of health, public policy, and the environment). This is, altogether, an essential new reference work for all CDS practitioners.

Is Language Getting Unisex?

Back in 1975 Robin Lakoff in her book Language and Woman''s Place (1975, Harper & Row, New York) illustrated the situation of social disparity between sexes reflected in the use of language. She also hoped that once her book would be read by people whose society would have transcended the issues she described. The present investigation is an attempt to prove that our society is, indeed, on its way to transcending social inequality attached to the traditional concepts of femininity and masculinity. The author of the study monitors the process of gender discourse democratization as manifested in such widely-read life-style magazines as Men''s Health and Cosmopolitan. As a final result of her research, the author of the study exposes and classifies the evidence of co-penetration between what is known as ‘traditional'' male and female topics/situations, as well as language choices. This research could be interesting to both researchers of the field and general public due to its fresh outlook on the issue of language and gender as, instead of polarizing male and female discourse, it offers the evidence of unisex character that language appears to be acquiring currently.

We live in a constantly changing global and mobile world, which can be defined as a “melting pot” of different cultures. Communicating with foreigners is inevitable, ranging from large international organizations to work teams or small groups in the academy classrooms with representatives of diverse cultural backgrounds. So it is becoming important to create an understanding and awareness of cultural values and intercultural communication competence. Intercultural communication competence requires not only to recognize and appreciate cultural differences, but also to develop effective interaction skills. The college classroom is a prime unit enabling instructors to teach students this important skill relevant in both professional and personal development.Development of intercultural competence includes the following aspects: empathy; ability to distance themselves from their position (change of perspective), recognition of cultural diversity, tolerance; cultural identity, ethnic identity.To reach the goal of communicating with linguistically and culturally diverse people the students should obtain intercultural communication competence.

Genre across Languages and Cultures

Revision with unchanged content. Traditional contrastive rhetoric research is often restricted to the tex­tual level of analysis. By providing both a textual and contextual view of genre across languages and cultures, this book presents a frame­work for contrastive rhetoric research which moves beyond the text into the context of production and interpretation of the text. The book examines the textual patterning of Australian and Chinese commen­taries and interpersonal and intertextual features of the texts, as well as considers possible contextual factors which might contribute to the formation of the newspaper commentaries in the two different languages and cultures. This analysis contributes towards answering the questions: How do writers in different languages and cultures position themselves in relation to the topics that they write about? How do they manipulate the topic and address their readers by the use of various linguistic strategies and devices? How do the roles of the press and opinion discourses mediate and influence constructions of the Chinese and English commentaries? How do discourses of terrorism in these two settings relate to textual and intertextual practices? The book is addressed to researchers in contrastive rhetoric and discourse research. It is also directed towards scholars in intercultural communi­cation and translation.

The book extends the concept of language in Lev Vygotsky’s Sociocultural Theory to the cognitive differences between second language acquisiton(SLA) and foreign language learning(FLL), and succeeds in filling the gap between FLL and SLA in constructing instructional interaction for FLL by the adoption of the Zone of Proximal Development and Scaffolding. It is not just intended to promote a particular approach to instructional interaction development in online FLL, but is an attempt to highlight the existence of the differences between FLL and SLA, and to underline the necessity to attend to them on a more than SLA theoretical basis.

Pink Floyd: Between Syd And The Dark Side

1859 руб.
Pink Floyd had already come a long way from their bines roots when main creative force Syd Barett sadly drifted away from the band in a haze of drug inducec nonchalance, bought on by one too many bad trips. Syd had led the Floyd into the absolute core оf the London underground's psychedelic movement but as his mental health failed the reins of the band were taken up by Roger Waterslind Dave Gilmour. Under their direction, the move towards prog-rock experimentalism took shape via the albums and soundtracks they completed in the post-Syd, pre-Dark Side era. With the Floyd's "Meddle" now seen as the real start of the journey that would result in masterpieces such as "Dark Side of the Moon", "Wish You Were Here" and "The Wall" this era is crying out for reassessment. This extraordinary documentary film reviews this time in detail and considers again the band's live performances and studio recordings, as well as their lives and career generally, across the 1968 - 1973 period, and in so doing sheds fresh light on how Pink Floyd became one of the biggest bands ever. Includes archive interviews with the group plus rare and studio performance footage, contributions and insight from luminaries including Floyd producer Norman Smith, friend and colleague Peter Banks from Yes, touring bassist Hugh Hopper and other friends colleague and associates, along with Pink Floyd biographer Mark Blake, Wire magazine's David Stubbs and ambient author Mark Prendergast, this film lifts the lid on this pivotal period in Pink Floyd's exceptional career.

Chinua Achebe is considered the father of African literature in English, the writer who 'opened the magic casements of African fiction' for an international readership. Following the 50th anniversary of the publication of his ground-breaking Things Fall Apart, Everyman republish Achebe's first and most famous novel alongside No Longer at Ease and Arrow of God, under the collective title The African Trilogy. In Things Fall Apart the individual tragedy of Okonkwo, 'strong man' and tribal elder in the Nigeria of the 1890s is intertwined with the transformation of traditional Igbo society under the impact of Christianity and colonialism. In No Longer at Ease, Okonkwo's grandson, Obi, educated in England, returns to a civil-service job in colonial Lagos, only to clash with the ruling elite to which he now believes he belongs. Arrow of God is set in the 1920s and explores the conflict from the two points of view - often, but not always, opposing - ofEzuelu, an Igbo priest, and Captain Winterbottom, a British district officer. In spare and lucid prose,Achebe tellsa universal tale of personal and moral struggle in a changing world which continues to resonate in Africa today and has captured the imaginations of readers everywhere.

Blending elements of Laurie Halse Anderson’s Speak and Gary Paulsen’s Hatchet, this gripping story from Kathryn Holmes was deemed “a page turner” by author Richard Peck and “an intense story of survival” by ALA Booklist in its starred review. Sophomore Hallie Calhoun has just endured the most excruciating six months of her life. Once the rumors about her and the preacher’s son, Luke, made their way around school, her friends abandoned her, and as a result, Hallie has completely withdrawn. Now on a hiking trip in the Smoky Mountains with the same people who have relentlessly taunted her, Hallie is pushed to her limit. Then Hallie, outgoing newcomer Rachel, and Jonah—Hallie’s former friend—get separated from the rest of the group. As days go by without rescue, their struggle for survival turns deadly. Stranded in the wilderness, the three have no choice but to trust one another in order to stay alive…and for Hallie, that means opening up about what really happened that night with Luke. From the catty atmosphere of high school to the unpredictable terrain of the mountains, this novel is a poignant, raw journey about finding yourself after having been lost for so long.

The Years & Between the Acts

194 руб.
This volume brings together Virginia Woolf's last two novels, "The Years" (1937) which traces the lives of members of a dispersed middle-class family between 1880 and 1937, and "Between the Acts" (1941), an account of a village pageant in the summer preceding the Second World War which successfully interweaves comedy, satire and disturbing observation. Rewriting the traditional family saga and the pageant, these unsettling novels provide extraordinary critiques of Englishness and English identity while pursuing compelling existentialist and psychological themes such as the nature of time, memory, personal relationships and sexual desire. Their tightly constructed narratives enable the reader to experience the fragmented lives of their characters and the difficulties that they have in communicating with each other and even understanding themselves. Read together, these novels illuminate each other in ways that will engage both the student and the general reader.

This book aims at investigating the ways in which deixis are identified in Standard English and Standard Arabic. It is an attempt to show the similarities and differences existing between them on the syntactic and semantic levels. They are realized by the same grammatical elements, like personal pronouns, demonstratives, some adverbs of place and time and tenses of the verb. The conclusions revealed that two are some points of similarity and difference within the above languages regarding person, number, gender and case distinctions. The comparison manifested a great similarity between the two compared languages and this result supports to a great extent the concept of universalism.

Bluets

1732 руб.
Bluets winds its way through depression, divinity, alcohol, and desire, visiting along the way with famous blue figures, including Joni Mitchell, Billie Holiday, Yves Klein, Leonard Cohen and Andy Warhol. While its narrator sets out to construct a sort of ‘pillow book’ about her lifelong obsession with the colour blue, she ends up facing down both the painful end of an affair and the grievous injury of a dear friend. The combination produces a raw, cerebral work devoted to the inextricability of pleasure and pain, and to the question of what role, if any, aesthetic beauty can play in times of great heartache or grief. Much like Roland Barthes’s A Lover’s Discourse, Bluets has passed between lovers in the ecstasy of new love, and been pressed into the hands of the heartbroken. Visceral, learned, and acutely lucid, Bluets is a slim feat of literary innovation and grace, never before published in the UK.

T. Omay Energy consumption and economic growth: Evidence from nonlinear panel cointegration and causality tests

79.9 руб.
In this paper, we examine nonlinear interrelationship between energy consumption and output level for a panel of G7 countries. For this purpose, we propose a nonlinear cointegration test in heterogeneous panels for testing the presence of a cointegrating relationship that follows a globally stationary exponential smooth transition (ESTR) process, and apply our test for investigating long-run relationship between energy use and economic growth in the case of the G7 countries. Our results suggest the presence of a long-run relationship between these two variables whereas adjustment to the equilibrium is inherently nonlinear. After establishing long-run relationship between energy consumption and output, we estimate a Panel Smooth Transition Vector Error Correction Model and apply nonlinear Granger causality tests in order to analyze the direction of the causality between these variables. We find that the causality between energy consumption and output level is dependent on the phases of business cycle. Our results highlight importance of taking account of possible nonlinearities in analysing output-energy causality nexus and designing energy policies.

Translation is the art of reproducing an utterance or a part of discourse from source language (SL) into target language (TL). A part of discourse can be consisting of a paragraph, a phrase, a sentence, and a neologism. Newmark (1988) stated that neologisms could be defined as newly coined lexical units or existing lexical units that acquire a new sense. The case of this study is subtitle of Avatar film (2009) whose 92 new words in English language (SL) and their counterparts in Persian language (TL) have been extracted, recorded and surveyed on the basis of suggested strategies of Silvia`s (2001) model for creation of neologisms and Newmark`s (1988) theoretical framework for neologisms` translation. In this qualitative, descriptive study, Avatar film has been watched and the data have been probed and analyzed in content of text via subtitles.
