The Dialectic Of Second-Language Learning: On Becoming An Asl-English Interpreter, Campbell McDermid 2018 University of North Florida

The Dialectic Of Second-Language Learning: On Becoming An Asl-English Interpreter, Campbell Mcdermid

Showcase of Faculty Scholarly & Creative Activity

A small group of interpreters was interviewed with regard to their view of learning ASL and becoming bicultural. A model of identity was then postulated based on Hegel’s dialectic (Wheat 2012) of thesis (presuppositions, stereotypes, or theories about ASL and the Deaf community), antithesis (conflicting experiences), and synthesis (new understanding and acceptance). Also utilized were various identity constructs from the literature on bilingualism/ biculturalism, which suggests that identity is ascribed or constructed in relation to others and constantly negotiated (Tropp et al. 1999). Evidence was found of a period of thesis or position, during which some interpreters had no ...


Elvish Practitioners Of The 'Secret Vice', Andrew Higgins Dr. 2018 Independent Scholar

Elvish Practitioners Of The 'Secret Vice', Andrew Higgins Dr.

Journal of Tolkien Research

In the course of his life Tolkien explored his thoughts and feelings on the role of language-invention in fiction in two key manifestos – his November 1931 talk 'A Secret Vice' and his 1954 O'Donnell lecture 'English and Welsh'. But Tolkien not only used his mythology to illustrate how these theories and the four key characteristics he felt invented languages should have (sound-sense, structure, link to history/myth) but also embedded in the very narrative and discourse of his mythic texts examples of Elves using and being practitioners of his own theories on language. In this paper I will explore ...

A Study Of The Nature And Impact Of Shona And Chinese Rhyming Words/Phrases, Herbert Mushangwe, Muchinei Musona 2017 University of Zimbabwe, Confucius Institute

A Study Of The Nature And Impact Of Shona And Chinese Rhyming Words/Phrases, Herbert Mushangwe, Muchinei Musona

Chinese Language Teaching Methodology and Technology

Pairs of rhyming words/phrases in Chinese and Shona were investigated in an attempt to bring out the effect of such words to the teaching and learning of Chinese language. The pairs were grouped in accordance to their effects and nature of relationship. The selection of the words was based on samples obtained during classroom teaching. Students’ reaction to Chinese words automatically tells the story of the effect of such rhyming words. For instance, for embarrassing rhyming words learners naturally shy out to pronounce the words or they laugh instead of imitating the teacher. It is clear that the study ...

Producing "Fabulous": Commodification And Ethnicity In Hair Braiding Salons, Sylviane Ngandu-Kalenga Greensword 2017 Louisiana State University

Producing "Fabulous": Commodification And Ethnicity In Hair Braiding Salons, Sylviane Ngandu-Kalenga Greensword

LSU Doctoral Dissertations

Black women wearing fabulous braids are a striking feature of the Afro-diasporic cultural landscape. However, the braiders and salon owners who enable this aesthetic engineering are seldom acknowledged. This dissertation investigates the experience and role of Caribbean and West and Central African women in the hair braiding industry, a rapidly growing business in the U.S. I address the complexity of these women’s multiple social roles and the multiple consciousness (King, 1988) associated with their demographic characteristics (color, ethnicity, gender, nationality, and immigrant status). The commonalities between the braiders and their mostly African American customers contrast vividly with their ...


Melodic Language And Linguistic Melodies: Singing In Tone Languages, Aaron Carter-Enyi 2017 Morehouse College

Melodic Language And Linguistic Melodies: Singing In Tone Languages, Aaron Carter-Enyi

Africana Digital Ethnography Project

Approximately 60% of the world’s languages are tonal, wherein alterations of pitch change the meaning of words. Two-syllable words in Yorùbá can have as many as five separate meanings, and single- syllable words in Mandarin up to four. Among tone-language speakers, acute pitch sensitivity is developed at an early age as part of language acquisition. The result is that speakers of tone languages are generally more sensitive to pitch than stress-language speakers. For speakers of stress languages, it is difficult to conceive of this other aurality, in which sound is perceived in a different way. But music holds the ...

The Quiet Leader, Sandra L. Maloney 2017 Western Oregon University

The Quiet Leader, Sandra L. Maloney

Master of Arts in Interpreting Studies (MAIS) Case Studies

Leaders are thought to be the ones who are bold, do big things, and make big changes. We have made leaders into individuals who ‘change the world’ (Dudley, 2010). The reality is that there are leaders who do not live to have their names in the headlines or seek to do extraordinary, heroic acts. They are those who live in our community with humility. They impact the lives of others by being themselves, fulfilling the task at hand, and showing respect to others. In the field of sign language interpreting, Marian Lage is a leader.
