It Just Doesn’T Add Up: Grammatical Number In Spanish And English, Amy S. Orf Jul 2017

It Just Doesn’T Add Up: Grammatical Number In Spanish And English, Amy S. Orf

Conference Presentations

This presentation examines the differences in grammatical number between Spanish and English, with respect to both the lexicon and agreement. These differences result in common errors by English-speaking students, such as yo pedí el camarón (“I ordered the shrimp”), tengo muchas ropas (“I have a lot of clothes”), mi postre favorito es las galletas (“my favorite dessert is cookies”), and me gustan cantar y bailar (“singing and dancing please me”). By highlighting the differences between Spanish and English, instructors can help their students avoid these pitfalls.

Dalgish Studies, Teaches The Complexities Of Languages., Aldemaro Romero Jr. May 2017

Dalgish Studies, Teaches The Complexities Of Languages., Aldemaro Romero Jr.

Publications and Research

“I tell my students that if they want to see the world, they might consider studying linguistics, because that is how I got my start,” says Dr. Gerard Dalgish, a professor of English at Baruch College. “I went to many different countries, and if you have that sort of background, you can live for a while working part-time or something like that if you like the particular place you’re visiting.”

These compelling words come from someone who has specialized in teaching English as a second language or ESL, as it is also known.


The Legend Of Cyborg Zelda: Linking Bodies, Linking Worlds, Elizabeth A. Hobbs May 2017

The Legend Of Cyborg Zelda: Linking Bodies, Linking Worlds, Elizabeth A. Hobbs

Honors Theses AY 16/17

Are you a cyborg? Am I a cyborg? Has our technology turned us into cyborgs, anti-cyborgs, or pro-humans? This paper analyzes the role of Donna Haraway's notion of the "cyborg myth" in Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. It investigates the main characters and storyline as a message about cyborgs, probes the medium of video games as they create or discourage becoming a cyborg, and determines the player's role in the question of what and who is human. Whether or not we as the players have become post-human remains yet to be seen as we look ...


Re-Writing English Identity: Medieval Historians Of Anglo-Norman Britain, Teresa Marie Lopez May 2017

Re-Writing English Identity: Medieval Historians Of Anglo-Norman Britain, Teresa Marie Lopez

Doctoral Dissertations

My dissertation uses post-colonial and narrative theories to examine the historiographic tradition of twelfth-century England. This investigation explores the idea of nationhood in pre-modern England and the relationship between history and romance in post-Conquest historical writings. I analyze how Geoffrey of Monmouth, Henry of Huntingdon Geffrei Gaimar, and Laʒamon imagine and narrate the explicit changes to the ruling elite in twelfth-century England, and how this process constructs their idea of “Englishness.”

Bilingual (Spanish-English) Marketing As A Catalyst For Cultural Awareness: The Effect On Parents In The Toy Market, Margo K. Bailey May 2017

Bilingual (Spanish-English) Marketing As A Catalyst For Cultural Awareness: The Effect On Parents In The Toy Market, Margo K. Bailey

Honors Scholar Theses

Due to globalization, multinational companies are increasingly cognizant of the language used in marketing materials. The growing Hispanic population in the U.S. and the increasing desire to learn and consume English in Spain makes marketers think twice about how they use language. This research is multi-method, using in-depth interviews and an experiment to learn more about how languages are used in advertisements to target monolingual and bilingual consumers within a country, and how consumers respond to monolingual and bilinguals advertisements.

I started by interviewing two marketing managers with experience in bilingual advertising in various media to better understand their ...


Illiteracy As Immanent: The (Re)Writing Of Rhetoric's Nature, Michael Kennedy May 2017

Illiteracy As Immanent: The (Re)Writing Of Rhetoric's Nature, Michael Kennedy

Honors College

Literacy is often thought of as a skill-set, that is, an ability to read and write in the dominant language of one’s socio-historical milieu. Illiteracy, on the other hand, is often thought of as a lack – an absence of a necessary skill-set that influences how well one can work and communicate (via reading and writing) within their dominant language and their society. In other words, illiteracy seems to have been defined by its relationship to the definition of literacy, that is, as a “negative-literacy” or a “not-literacy” that creates a lacuna of meaning when attempting to define illiteracy as ...


Requiem, Jacob K. Lee May 2017

Requiem, Jacob K. Lee

Student Research, Creative Activity, and Performance - School of Music

Traditionally, the requiem form began as a Catholic mass to honor the dead. Today, the requiem is generally composed conveying messages of solace to troubled hearts. Many composers, such as Britten and Rutter, choose to abandon some of the orthodox text of the mass to provide an added measure of connection for the audience. The result of these later requiems is often a baring of the composer’s soul – something profoundly personal shared in the hope of inspiring others. This latter process is my aim in creating my Requiem. I approach this end in several ways, compositionally: There is a ...

Spread Newspapers Around: Students Acting! The Invaluable Role Of Modern Theater Class In A Stem Environment, Leah Kind

Leah Kind

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players. This line of William Shakespeare’s, itself often redrawn and refashioned to suit different intended purposes, perhaps never rings as poignantly as during high school. Students speak of trying on a particular personality or character, as they desperately seek for what TRUE player dwells behind the mask. The years between junior high and secondary education exist for many students as their own personal time of remaking. Students exit one wing in adolescence, rush behind the curtain as they take up or cast off whatever masks and ...
