La Guerra Civil Española Y Sus Trece Rosas: The Spanish Civil War And Their Thirteen Roses, Rachel Williams 2017 Duquesne University

La Guerra Civil Española Y Sus Trece Rosas: The Spanish Civil War And Their Thirteen Roses, Rachel Williams

Undergraduate Research and Scholarship Symposium

The Spanish Civil War, which took place from 1936 to 1939, had a deep and lasting impact on Spain. During this hard time of the nation's history, when the country was divided by The Nationalists (Los Nacionalistas) and The Republicans (Los Republicanos), emerged a group of young women who, against all odds, decided to fight against their oppressors. This courageous group, many still teenagers, started a fight against the right-wing party, Los Nacionalistas. Rooted in opposition to what would become a long-lasting military dictatorship, each woman brought a unique perspective to the fight. In fact, for almost four decades ...

Another Adelaida: Dostoevsky’S The Idiot In Nabokov’S Ada, Victor Fet, Slav N. Gratchev 2017 Marshall University

Another Adelaida: Dostoevsky’S The Idiot In Nabokov’S Ada, Victor Fet, Slav N. Gratchev

Victor Fet

It appears…that Ada scholars have overlooked the only Adelaida existing in major Russian literature. It is Adelaida Yepanchina, the middle daughter of General Yepanchin in Dostoevsky's The Idiot (1868). All three daughters have names starting with "A": Alexandra, Adelaida, Aglaya (compare this to Nabokov's Anya-Ada-Asya).


Wh-Interrogatives In Early L1 Greek: Comprehension Vs. Production, Evangelia K. Asproudi 2017 Dublin Institute of Technology

Wh-Interrogatives In Early L1 Greek: Comprehension Vs. Production, Evangelia K. Asproudi

The ITB Journal

This paper examines the comprehension and production of wh-interrogatives in early L1 Greek. Specifically, children’s performance is explored at both levels with regard to argument/adjunct extraction and presence/absence of negation. In order to test the predicted lead of comprehension over production, a group of ninety four-to-seven-year old Greek children participated in elicitation tasks that were designed mainly along the methodological principles of Crain and Thornton (1998). On the whole, the results were in line with the initial expectation. That is, the Greek children performed better in question comprehension compared to question production, with individual findings suggesting that ...


Skopos Theory As An Extension Of Rhetoric, Isabelle Collombat 2017 Université Sorbonne Nouvelle – Paris 3 (ESIT)

Skopos Theory As An Extension Of Rhetoric, Isabelle Collombat

Poroi

This essay, which pertains to translation studies, presents a reflection aiming at defining intersections between the areas covered respectively by rhetoric and by skopos theory, which, in the field of translation studies, is one of the most frequently used theoretical frameworks that structures practice, and therefore teaching. It aims to lay the foundations of a translatorial theoretical framework based on an extension of the skopos model including the stylistic elements of classical rhetoric, and perhaps also on an extension of the rhetorical model to embrace a wide range of text types.


The Transcoding Of “Women Empowerment” As “Empoderamiento De La Mujer”: A Post-Colonial Translation Theory For Transnational Feminist Rhetorics, Cristina Sanchez-Martin 2017 Illinois State University

The Transcoding Of “Women Empowerment” As “Empoderamiento De La Mujer”: A Post-Colonial Translation Theory For Transnational Feminist Rhetorics, Cristina Sanchez-Martin

Poroi

In the work of transnational feminist scholars, there is a share interest in investigating the colonial practices that affect women’s lives around the globe. In “Under Western Eyes: Feminist Scholarship and Colonial Discourses” (1986) Mohanty claims that scholars in the field should “detect (…) colonialist move(s) in the case of a hegemonic first-third world connection in scholarship” (349) in order to recognize the peculiarities of the cultures whose discourses are being created and thus, avoid the universalization and “homogenization of class, race, religious, cultural and historical specificities of the lives of women” (348). In this regard, Dingo touches upon ...
