Aproximación Teórica A La Evolución Disciplinaria Y Temática En La Historia Del Análisis Del Discurso, David Sánchez-Jiménez
Publications and Research
En este artículo explicativo se llevará a cabo una revisión de las diferentes contribuciones que desde diversas líneas disciplinares han venido completando la transformación de la disciplina del análisis del discurso a lo largo de su historia. Estas aportaciones han permitido modificar el concepto que sobre el mismo se tenía en diversas etapas de su desarrollo con el fin de ampliarlo, teniendo en cuenta en cada una de ellas distintos aspectos de la organización discursiva y retórica de los elementos lingüísticos que conforman los textos orales y escritos, así como las implicaciones cognitivas y pragmáticas del lenguaje en la ...
Mechanisms And Implications Of Identity Hybridization In Online Advertorials, 2017 University of Arkansas, Fayetteville
Mechanisms And Implications Of Identity Hybridization In Online Advertorials, Christopher Lee Borntrager
Theses and Dissertations
This study analyzes the ways corporate-sponsored image advertorials published in online platforms construct identities for their sponsor. By analyzing 6 advertorials from The Guardian Online as well as a user comment thread on the same website using critical linguistic analysis and conversation analysis, respectively, this study suggests that the identities constructed in corporate-sponsored advertorials are a hybridized form, claiming both the goals of a corporation and the social legitimacy of a professional activist. To construct these hybrid identities, the advertorials in this sampling used specific linguistic strategies to demonstrate agency with regard to a specific social issue while seeming to ...

Embodying Rhythm Nation: Multimodal Hip Hop Dance As A Site For Adolescent Social-Emotional And Political Development, 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York
Embodying Rhythm Nation: Multimodal Hip Hop Dance As A Site For Adolescent Social-Emotional And Political Development, Lauren M. Roygardner
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
This exploratory study employed qualitative methodology, specifically values analysis, to learn more about how being involved within Hip hop dance communities positively relates to adolescent development. Adolescence was defined herein as ages 13-23. The study investigated Hip hop dance communities in terms of cultural expertise (i.e. novice, intermediate and advanced/expert) to look specifically at dance narratives (i.e. peak experience narratives and “I dance because” essays) and hip hop dance performances. The primary purpose of this dissertation was to (1) explore how adolescents use multimodal Hip hop dance discourse for social-emotional development and critical consciousness, and to (2 ...
Color-Blind Stancetaking In Racialized Discourse, 2017 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Color-Blind Stancetaking In Racialized Discourse, Abigail Christine Tobias-Lauerman
In this thesis, I examine how language constructs and constrains racialized discourse in post-Jim Crow contemporary America. Drawing on rhetorical and sociolinguistic work set forth by Booth, Shotwell, Bonilla-Silva, Omi and Winant, and others, it is apparent that racial organization— and racial identities and categorization— in the US is reliant upon specific markers that signify racial meaning. Such markers are assimilated into wider, unconscious discourse through what Shotwell and Booth describe as seemingly inherent— yet ultimately constructed— matters of “common sense,” and are expressed through evaluative stance acts. I explore the origins and construction of these markers and the relationship ...
Grassroots Diplomacy And Vernacular Law: The Discourse Of Food Sovereignty In Maine, 2017 University of Maine-Orono
Grassroots Diplomacy And Vernacular Law: The Discourse Of Food Sovereignty In Maine, John Welton
Electronic Theses and Dissertations
This thesis studies the discourse of food sovereignty in Maine, a coalition of small-scale farmers, consumers, and citizens building an alternative food system based on a distributed form of production, processing, selling, purchasing, and consumption. This distribution occurs at the municipal level through the enactment of ordinances. Using critical-rhetorical field methods, I argue that the discourse of food sovereignty in Maine develops a ‘constitutive’ rhetoric that composes rural society through affective relationships. Advocates engage the industrial food system to both expose its systemic bias against small-scale farming and construct their own discourse of belonging. Based upon agrarian values such as ...
Racismo Y Lenguaje, 2017 University of Connecticut - Storrs
Racismo Y Lenguaje, Michele Back, Virgina Zavala
Faculty Published Works
Este libro busca contribuir al estudio de los procesos de racialización y de la construcción discursiva de nuevas identidades en el Perú contemporáneo. En lugar de abordar el racismo desde una dimensión cognitiva, se interesa por el rol que las prácticas lingüísticas cumplen en su constitución. Las diez contribuciones que integran este volumen examinan los discursos y las prácticas del racismo en ámbitos diversos y discuten las sutiles formas en las que se construye a un «otro» desde un criterio aparentemente no racial, pero bajo retóricas raciales de modo subyacente. Todos los artículos abordan la forma en que la raza ...
Linguistic And Sociological Dimensions Of The Illusive Concept Of Jamʿ, 2017 Northern Arizona University
Linguistic And Sociological Dimensions Of The Illusive Concept Of Jamʿ, Mohamed Mohamed
SouthEast Coastal Conference on Languages & Literatures (SECCLL)
The Linguistic and Sociological Dimensions of the Illusive Concept of Jamʿ
Unlike ijmāʿ, which means consensus, jamʿ refers to mere collection, gathering or grouping. In other words, if ijmāʿ is grounded in reason, indicates a choice between two opposites, and represents a reified construction, jamʿ, on the contrary, avoids reason, (con) fuses opposites, and survives on ambiguity. Jamʿ neither dialectically integrates opposites, nor post-modernly juxtaposes them as collage. The secret of jamʿ is an epistemology of truth that is never complete, and always mixed with falsehood. This epistemology is rooted in Islamic theology, where the Truth is neither incarnated, nor ...
Revision Crítica Del Concepto De Género En El Discurso Escrito Y Su Aplicación Didáctica A La Enseñanza De Las Lenguas Con Propósitos Específicos.

Critical Review Of The Genre Concept In Written Discourse And Its Pedagogical Application To Language Teaching For Specific Purposes, David Sánchez-Jiménez
Publications and Research
This paper provides a theoretical review of how the concept of academic and professional discursive genres has evolved, from a linguistic perspective when it first emerged to its current sociocognitive perspective. The stage it has reached is due to intertextuality and interdiscursivity processes caused by the contact between different disciplines. Similarly, the paper discusses some of the most current didactic recommendations on genre teaching proposed by the languages for specific purposes (lps) approach. The discursive genre has been regularly used in lps since learning how to develop the typical genres of a discourse community is a fundamental requirement to succeed ...
Apologies For Cross-Posting: Composing Disciplinary Affects And Conflicts On The Wpa Listserv, 2017 University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Apologies For Cross-Posting: Composing Disciplinary Affects And Conflicts On The Wpa Listserv, Zachary Beare
Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research: Department of English
Drawing on theories of counterpublics, online communication, and affect, this dissertation argues that the Writing Program Administrators Listserv (WPA-L) functions as an important site of disciplinary knowledge-making and theory-building for the field of Composition and Rhetoric. The dissertation examines the WPA-L as a discursive space in which members of the discipline build community, debate pressing issues, and strategize how best to advocate for their individual and collective interests. At the same time that these qualities reveal how the listserv functions as counterpublic space for the discipline at large, the dissertation argues that sub-disciplinary counterpublics made up of individuals marginalized within ...

Contesting Victimhood: A Linguistic And Legal Anthropological Analysis Of Defendant Experiences In New York’S Human Trafficking Intervention Courts, Mark T. Romig
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
Human Trafficking Intervention Courts (HTICs) have been operating in New York City in an effort to connect victims of human trafficking to treatment programs. Unfortunately, the net that the courts cast was too wide and people who did not identify as victims of human trafficking were coerced into treatment programs that they did not need or want. Through textual discourse analysis and ethnographic observation, this paper explores the contestation of victimhood in HTICs by focusing on the experiences of defendants and how they are perceived by the police, judges, and other agents of the HTICs. Before entering the HTICs, defendants ...

Participant Perspectives And Critical Reflections On Language Teacher Education By Distance, 2017 Macquarie University, Australia
Participant Perspectives And Critical Reflections On Language Teacher Education By Distance, John S. Knox
Australian Journal of Teacher Education
Language teaching is a profession which is international in character. Language teachers often work and study in foreign countries, and distance education has become very important in the education of language teachers. Drawing on two international surveys, this paper explores language teacher education by distance from the perspective of students (i.e. trainee or practicing language teachers) and teacher-educators in such distance programs. There are significant educational advantages for language teachers who choose to study by distance, and e-learning technologies have enhanced these benefits. This paper also includes an in-depth analysis of the qualitative survey responses from two individual students ...
On The Verbless Or Nominal Clause In Biblical Hebrew: A Synthesis Of Andersen And Joüon/Muraoka, 2017 Ouachita Baptist University
On The Verbless Or Nominal Clause In Biblical Hebrew: A Synthesis Of Andersen And Joüon/Muraoka, Libby Hillard
The purpose of this paper is to briefly compare and more fully contrast the methodology, conclusions, and taxonomy used by Francis Andersen in his work The Hebrew Verbless Clause in the Pentateuch and by Paul Joüon and Takamitsu Muraoka in A Grammar of Biblical Hebrew, regarding the verbless or nominal clause in Biblical Hebrew. As Muraoka’s additions to Joüon’s work often acknowledge Andersen’s conclusions, there is naturally much agreement. There are, however, differences of varying degree concerning terminology (such as “verbless” and “nominal”), the treatment of היה , and most notably, word order.
The Reflection And Reification Of Racialized Language In Popular Media, 2017 University of Kentucky
The Reflection And Reification Of Racialized Language In Popular Media, Kelly E. Wright
Theses and Dissertations--Linguistics
This work highlights specific lexical items that have become racialized in specific contextual applications and tests how these words are cognitively processed. This work presents the results of a visual world (Huettig et al 2011) eye-tracking study designed to determine the perception and application of racialized (Coates 2011) adjectives. To objectively select the racialized adjectives used, I developed a corpus comprised of popular media sources, designed specifically to suit my research question. I collected publications from digital media sources such as Sports Illustrated, USA Today, and Fortune by scraping articles featuring specific search terms from their websites. This experiment seeks ...
Language, Rhetoric, And Politics In A Global Context: A Decolonial Critical Discourse Perspective On Nigeria’S 2015 Presidential Campaign, 2017 Michigan Technological University
Language, Rhetoric, And Politics In A Global Context: A Decolonial Critical Discourse Perspective On Nigeria’S 2015 Presidential Campaign, Yunana Ahmed
Dissertations, Master's Theses and Master's Reports
In this dissertation, I conceptualize a rhetorical and linguistic analysis of politics from a decolonial framework (Mignolo, 2011; Smith, 2012). My analysis draws on classical rhetoric (Aristotle, 2007), cultural rhetoric (Mao, 2014; Powell, et al., 2014; Yankah, 1995), and linguistics (Chilton, 2004) to reveal the different ways ideological and hegemonic struggles are discursively constructed in Nigerian political campaign discourse. The data for this study come from two speeches delivered by former President of Nigeria Goodluck Jonathan during the 2015 electoral campaign. This includes his declaration-of-intent speech and his speech marking the commencement of his formal campaign activities. My research demonstrates ...
If It Looks Like A *Uck: A Provocation On B*D Words, 2016 University of Akron
If It Looks Like A *Uck: A Provocation On B*D Words, Jodi Kearns, Brian C. O'Connor
Proceedings from the Document Academy
For some decades, we’ve been considering (and using) “b*d” words. Such a large part of the document space is made up of words; it seems necessary, upon occasion, to explore the crooked little paths and messy gutters occupied by some words. We invite your company on such a little exploration now.
