Language and its Effects

Proceedings from the 31st International Conference of the Croatian Applied Linguistics Society

Edited by Marija Brala Vukanović and Anita Memišević

The effects of language are numerous. Some are known and have been described, other effects are intuitive and are still waiting to be understood, explained and predicted, while – possibly – there might be more effects that we are still unaware of. The book brings together 16 contributions organized into two main sections: The first one relates to the issue of the effects of language in the FL classroom. The second one can, broadly speaking, be subsumed under the heading of sociolinguistics, given that it brings together a number of papers exploring the effects of language on society and/or on the individual. The answers to the questions have been provided by linguists – theoreticians and practitioners - from multiple perspectives. Thus, the conclusions and invitations for further research put forth in the papers collected in this book, should be of use to anyone with an interest in the effects of language, from cognitive scientists to FL teachers.

Mind Embodied

The Evolutionary Origins of Complex Cognitive Abilities in Modern Humans

Jay Seitz

How does the brain function in communion with the body to create complex thought and emotion? Mind Embodied: The Evolutionary Origins of Complex Cognitive Abilities in Modern Humans begins with an investigation of the embodied basis of complex cognitive abilities and sets out a theory of their evolutionary and developmental origins, their autochthonous beginnings in other species, their appearance at the margins of humankind, and their culmination in a panoply of highly elaborated abilities and skills in present-day hominins. This book explores and examines music, aesthetic movement, the visual arts, creative abilities, language and communication, sociality, narrative and conceptual thought, the beginnings of artificial intelligence augmentation, and even the finesse and tastes of an oenophile.

Medium-sized language communities face competition between local and global languages such as Spanish, Russian, French and, above all, English. The various regions of Spain where Catalan is spoken, Denmark, the Czech Republic, and Lithuania show how their medium-sized languages (a term used to distinguish them as much from minority codes as from more widely-spoken codes) coexist alongside or struggle with their big brothers in multilingual families. This comparative analysis offers unique insight into language contact in present-day Europe.

Die Autorin untersucht die Predigten Johannes Taulers in Bezug auf konzeptionelle Mündlichkeit und unter Berücksichtigung der handschriftlichen Überlieferungen seit dem 14. bis zu den Drucken aus dem frühen 17. Jahrhundert. Ihre Ergebnisse zeigen, dass konzeptionelle Schriftlichkeit das Ergebnis prozesshaften Wandels ist. Dieser findet Ausdruck in dem zunehmenden Versuch, durch Sprachverwendung, Text- und Buchgestaltung das situative Defizit von Schrift auszugleichen. So kann die Autorin aufzeigen, dass der Übergang zur Drucklegung im Verschriftlichungsprozess der Predigten Taulers als weiterer Schritt der Ablösung vom sprechenden Körper reflektiert wurde, und dass der Prediger dabei umso stärker auf verschiedenen Ebenen in den Text zurückkehrt.
