Political Organization And Texts: Legislative Developments In Ecuador, Nicholas Limerick Apr 2011

Political Organization And Texts: Legislative Developments In Ecuador, Nicholas Limerick

Working Papers in Educational Linguistics (WPEL)

A recent rewriting of the Constitution in Ecuador resulted in the naming of Quichua as an official language of intercultural communication. This paper examines the social processes that produced such an update, as well as how these historical developments affected the co-text of crafting this legislative piece. I also consider how wordings of the document itself comment on the history of its production, as well as how this text artifact mediates future discourses about it. Through understanding this event as one point in an extended history of efforts by Indigenous groups, I consider how this updated draft of a constitution ...

Kanji Acquisition Among Language Minority Students In Japan: A Comparative Study Of Japanese-As-A-Second-Language Students Born In Japan, Yuko G. Butler Apr 2011

Kanji Acquisition Among Language Minority Students In Japan: A Comparative Study Of Japanese-As-A-Second-Language Students Born In Japan, Yuko G. Butler

Working Papers in Educational Linguistics (WPEL)

Although Japan has an increasing number of children who are learning Japanese as their second language (JSL students), relatively little is understood with regards to their acquisition of the Japanese language. Since acquisition of kanji (i.e., Chinese characters used in Japanese) is considered a critical skill for academic success at school in Japan, this study examined the reading and writing of kanji among JSL students, focusing on students who were born in Japan but raised in non-Japanese speaking homes. A set of kanji reading and writing tests were administered to 27 4th grade JSL students, and their performance was ...


Orthographic Policy And Planning In Sénégal/Senegaal: The Détournement Of Orthographic Stereotypes, Cécile Evers Apr 2011

Orthographic Policy And Planning In Sénégal/Senegaal: The Détournement Of Orthographic Stereotypes, Cécile Evers

Working Papers in Educational Linguistics (WPEL)

This paper examines the interlocking nature of corpus policy and cultivation planning through a case study of the Wolof orthography and its changing role in the Senegalese educational landscape. Until recently, local language orthographies have been the purview of a very limited slice of Senegalese society. Absent, as they were, from formal education in the post-independence period, Wolof orthographies were practiced only by a small group of leftist Senegalese intellectuals, and later by the informal education movement. I trace how the various orthographies of Wolof (viz., French, indigenous, and standard orthographies of Wolof) have been taken up by (often) unexpected ...
