Language Creativity: A Sociolinguistic Reading Of Linguistic Change In Lebanon, Sawsan Tohme Jan 2020

Language Creativity: A Sociolinguistic Reading Of Linguistic Change In Lebanon, Sawsan Tohme

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

Language creativity in incorporated in everyday conversations and language behaviour. It is present in everyday expression although it might sometimes be invisible, looked down on or disdained. Regardless of whether we are in favour of or against this creativity, it is worth being recognised. As far as Lebanon is concerned, Arabic (i.e. Standard Arabic) is the official language, while Lebanese Arabic, along with English and French, are the main languages used by the Lebanese. This language diversity can be explained in the light of a number of factors and sociolinguistic functions. The language use in Lebanon has many creative ...

Creativity In Language: Reflections On Polysemy, Metaphors, Idioms, Collocations…And The Like, Adel Sakakini, Diana Hadi

BAU Journal - Society, Culture and Human Behavior

According to Ronald Carter (2011), Creativity is such a complex and protean term to define. It involves inventiveness, imagination, novelty, originality and a myriad of other aspects. In language, in particular, creativity manifests itself in humans’ ability to produce an infinite number of sentences never spoken before and understand sentences never heard before or what Chomsky calls “creative aspect” of language use (Fromkin and Rodman, 1993.) It is of two types: rule-bound creativity and rule-breaking creativity. The researchers explore creativity employed in different language discourse such as slips of the pen, slips of the tongue, oxymoron, paradox, collocation, blends, anomaly ...

Evaluation Of Phenolic Content, Antiradical And Antibacterial Activities Of Orange And Carrot Pomace Extracts, Dina Cheaib, Karim Raafat, Nada El Darra

BAU Journal - Health and Wellbeing

Orange and carrot pomace are considered as food wastes, despite their high content in beneficial health compounds. The comparison of phenolic extracts from orange and carrot pomace, showed higher values for Orange pomace, with a polyphenols concentration (130 mg/L), flavonoids (8.67 mg/L) and tannins (2.5 mg/L). A higher antiradical activity was also noted for orange pomace. However, carrot pomace presented a higher anti-bacterial activity. The beneficial activities of these extracts were owed to their high content in phenolic acids. Our study exhibited that orange and carrot pomace might be utilized as natural preservatives for many ...

Epicenter: An Investigation Of Interior Design's Influence Of The American Suburban Situation, Lindsay Meyer Jan 2020

Epicenter: An Investigation Of Interior Design's Influence Of The American Suburban Situation, Lindsay Meyer

Honors Theses, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The suburbs cause isolation and poor physical and mental health for a variety of individuals, including parents, teenagers, and the elderly. Neighborhood design rarely considers marginalized teenagers and elderly, but instead focuses on the automobile. Teenagers show higher rates of anxiety, depression, and substance abuse in suburban areas than in urban areas. Millennial desire for suburbs that are engaging and elderly desire to remain in their homes longer demands reconsideration of the current suburban model. Big-box store blight ravages suburban communities damaging local economies and diminishing community curb-appeal. Closing box stores compounds the suburban dweller’s reliance on the automobile ...

Simplified Technique For Removal Of Prefabricated Threaded Posts, Mohammad M. Rayyan, Ammar M. Alwaely Jan 2020

Simplified Technique For Removal Of Prefabricated Threaded Posts, Mohammad M. Rayyan, Ammar M. Alwaely

BAU Journal - Creative Sustainable Development

This paper describes a time-saving procedure for the removal of prefabricated threaded posts. In this technique, a slit is prepared in the head of the post to-be-removed so that it can be engaged by a jewelers’ precision stainless steel flat-blade screwdriver which would drive it out when rotated counterclockwise. This simple technique spares the clinician valuable time and effort during removal, requires minimal or no loss of valuable tooth structure compared to other techniques. It is also conservative in the sense that it does not expose dental tissue to thermal insults from use of ultrasound.
