Diseño De Un Curso De Español Para Principiantes Basado En Los Principios De Call, Kerwin A. Livingstone, Kerwin A. Livingstone 2016 University of Guyana

Diseño De Un Curso De Español Para Principiantes Basado En Los Principios De Call, Kerwin A. Livingstone, Kerwin A. Livingstone

Kerwin A. Livingstone

Este trabajo pretende hacer hincapié en que la metodología de CALL, mediante los Módulos de Desarrollo, Implementación y Evaluación, debe explorarse aún más con motivos de presentarles experiencias educativas significativas a los estudiantes de lenguas extranjeras. Se postula, debido al aumento en el uso de aplicaciones multimediales para otros campos de estudio, que la utilidad de esta nueva tecnología para la didáctica de lenguas puede lograr grandes alcances, promocionando así la enseñanza-aprendizaje diversificada. Se intenta mostrar el diseño de un software docente-educativo basado en la metodología de CALL que centra su atención, principalmente, en la expresión oral, una de las ...


The Dark Pastoral: Goethe And Atwood, Heather I. Sullivan 2016 Trinity University

The Dark Pastoral: Goethe And Atwood, Heather I. Sullivan

Modern Languages and Literatures Faculty Research

The Anthropocene challenges the humanities to find means of representing and analysing our fossil-fueled practices that have spread industrial particulates over the entire globe, changed the climate, and reshaped landscapes into a “new nature.” In this essay, I propose the “dark pastoral” as an analytical trope, examining two framing texts from the Anthropocene: Goethe’s landmark 1797 pastoral German epic, Hermann and Dorothea, and Margaret Atwood’s 2003 postapocalyptic novel Oryx and Crake, the first installment of her MaddAddam trilogy which ends with a surprisingly pastoral flourish. At the early phases of the Anthropocene (as it is defined by Paul ...

Fool’S Paradise: The English Language As A Barrier To Adult Second-Language Acquisition, Elizabeth A. McLaughlin, Erin Stackle 2015 Loyola Marymount University

Fool’S Paradise: The English Language As A Barrier To Adult Second-Language Acquisition, Elizabeth A. Mclaughlin, Erin Stackle

Research & Exhibition

The United States of America has never had an official language, yet the majority of its populace speaks only English. This is true even in in cases where a second language is studied in school. While the multilingualism in the United States is mostly explainable due to historical events and geographical isolation, the United Kingdom is experiencing the same shortage of accomplished second-language speakers. Could the modern English language be at fault? English is the most simplified language in modern use, and lacks the grammatical complexity found in most European languages. I propose to study how exactly English is a ...

Linguistic Transfer: Studying Third Language Acquisition In University Context, Jordan E. Rehbock, Rebeca Acevedo 2015 Loyola Marymount University

Linguistic Transfer: Studying Third Language Acquisition In University Context, Jordan E. Rehbock, Rebeca Acevedo

Research & Exhibition

While much past work in linguistics has focused on second language acquisition and the interlanguage that is developed within such an individual, this project would investigate the way that such an interlanguage influences a learner of a third language. Previous studies on third language acquisition (TLA) have largely focused on determining the initial state of L3 interlanguage. To contribute to the discussion on TLA, this study would be concerned specifically with students with experience in the formal classroom setting and gauge interference from an L1 or L2 on the acquisition of an L3. While various forms of interference can be ...

Noblewomen, Memory, And The Invention Of A Fictitious Past, Lynn Lubamersky 2015 Boise State University

Noblewomen, Memory, And The Invention Of A Fictitious Past, Lynn Lubamersky

Lynn Lubamersky

Historians today would call family origin myths like the Radziwiłł family’s origin myth fictitious or a fabrication, but families put a great deal of effort and expense into patronizing artists, architects, authors, printers, and others to create the trappings of noble grandeur to build and sustain a noble family’s reputation in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth of the XVIIIth century. Noblewomen were often the ones who were responsible for organizing not just the pomp and circumstance of banquets, funerals, weddings, and other large gatherings, but also for commissioning genealogies and writing memoirs, which should be grand, delightful, entertaining, and heavily ...


Nonstandard Languages: The Outcasts Of The Language Revitalization Movement, Whitney Snowden 2015 Liberty University

Nonstandard Languages: The Outcasts Of The Language Revitalization Movement, Whitney Snowden

Senior Honors Theses

This thesis compares the failures of the creolization movement with the success of the language revitalization movement and seeks to determine which elements are missing from the former to make it as successful as the latter. Education policy, identity, and language ideology are all examined as contributors to the future success of creole inclusivity in education and society, as well as the potential benefits such a movement would include. Specifically examined are Siegel’s research on creole education and Armstrong’s work on language ideology.


Reflexive And Reciprocal Constructions In Modern Irish, Brian Nolan 2015 Dublin Institute of Technology

Reflexive And Reciprocal Constructions In Modern Irish, Brian Nolan

The ITB Journal

This paper examines reflexive (and reciprocal) constructions in modern Irish, a VSOX language for which the generative analysis using c-command is problematic. Reflexive and reciprocal constructions are best reflected in the inherent VSOX word order. The reflexive occurs in transitive constructions with the reflexive marker féin, which can also be used non-reflexively but emphatically. A continuum is observed with a human/animate participant as the subject argument at the reflexive pole and a nonhuman inanimate at the emphatic end. Motion is an ingredient in reflexivity. Fictive or nontranslational motion are both non-reflexive. Translational motion alone allows reflexivity. Reciprocals are complex ...


Passive Voice Constructions In Modern Irish, Brian Nolan 2015 Dublin Institute of Technology

Passive Voice Constructions In Modern Irish, Brian Nolan

The ITB Journal

This paper is about the passive construction, of which modern Irish (a VSO language) has two primary forms, the personal passive and its variants, and the impersonal. An empirical question is posed as to whether a third passive form exists within the language, that of a functionally defined GET-passive. To deliver a unified analysis of the various passive constructions, a perspective that takes account of the complete event is necessary.


Towards A Study Of Situation Types Of Irish, Brian Nolan 2015 Dublin Institute of Technology

Towards A Study Of Situation Types Of Irish, Brian Nolan

The ITB Journal

In this paper we analyse the structure of situation types as found in Irish. We translate these situation types into a logical metalanguage, giving the logical structure of each type. We do this to differentiate, for Irish, the aktionsarten distinctions of state, activity, achievement and accomplishment as they are found within the language. The motivation of this paper is therefore to describe the aktionsart of modern Irish and to determine the logical structure that underpins these situation types.


A Comparative Analysis On The Skill Acquisition Of Music And Language, Dominique Lopiccolo 2015 Liberty University

A Comparative Analysis On The Skill Acquisition Of Music And Language, Dominique Lopiccolo

The Kabod

The purpose of this paper is to evaluate some of the shared cognitive processes, which seem to underlie both the acquisition of music and language. Since linguists have separated language acquisition studies into one of two major categories, that is, child versus second language acquisition, the following comparative study will predominantly focus on the similarities found between second language acquisition and music acquisition. This is due in large part to the fact that our current understanding of how child language acquisition works is still in its primitive stages, and it most likely follows a more intuitivist paradigm. Second language acquisition ...
