Teaching for transfer is important to the authors of this article, four clinical professors and one psychologist. The purpose of this article is to provide an introduction to some of the ...

The Acquisition Of Spanish Pronunciation By Welsh Learners: Transfer From A Regional Variety Of English Into Spanish, Alfredo Herrero De Haro

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers (Archive)

Language teachers agree that the phonetic/phonological distance between a learner’s L1 and L2 is of vital importance in mastering the sounds of the L2; however, no attention is given to the phonetic/phonological distance between the regional variety of the speaker’s L1 and the L2.

This helps to explain positive and negative transfer from this variety of English into Spanish and assists in producing a catalogue of the ...

Most often these thefts involve stealing trade secrets in an intangible form. Current legislation fails to adequately protect intangible trade secrets, leaving them vulnerable to theft. An amendment to the National Stolen Property Act that encompasses intangible trade secrets would close a loophole that currently exists relating to intangible ...
