Edited by Joanna Pitura and Shannon Sauro

This book investigates various aspects of Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL) that address the challenges arising due to increasing learner and teacher mobility. The chapters deal with two broad areas, i.e. mobile technology for teacher and translator education and technology for mobile language learning. The authors allow for insights into how mobile learning activities can be used in educational settings by providing research on classroom practice. This book aims at helping readers gain a better understanding of the function and implementation of mobile technologies in local classroom contexts to support mobility, professional development, and language and culture learning.

Etnicidade Linguística em Movimento

Os Processos de Transculturalidade Revelados nos Brasileirítalos do Eixo Rio de Janeiro-Juiz de Fora

Series:

Mario L. M. Gaio

Este trabalho discute língua, cultura e sociedade. Interessa à sociolinguística, mas também a outros campos do saber nas ciências sociais. A composição multiétnica da população brasileira é profundamente marcada por traços culturais de diversos povos, entre os quais o italiano. A imigração italiana deixou marcas culturais importantes em seus descendentes, tornando-os sujeitos transculturais. O aporte teórico se fundamenta em estudos de Contato de Línguas, Redes Sociais, Comunidades de Prática, Identidade, «Belonging» e Transculturalidade. A metodologia utilizada constitui-se de aplicação de entrevistas semiestruturadas a descendentes de italianos analisadas sob a perspectiva da Ecolinguística. O ecossistema cultural desses indivíduos revela a manifestação da etnicidade em movimento.

‹Speaking› Quotation Marks

Toward a Multimodal Analysis of Quoting Verbatim in English

Martina Lampert

This book offers in-depth qualitative case studies of 70 acts of quoting verbatim performed by 16 US speakers across a range of public settings. While their written versions unequivocally index the other voice via quotation marks, the video data drawn from the internet largely lack any non-verbal cues. Contrary to expectation, the quotations’ verbatimness is hardly ever translated into the gradient media: It neither stands out by vocal parameters (pauses, pitch, or intensity) when analyzed acoustically with Praat; nor are (manual) gestures, shift of gaze or body posture called on to serve as regular discriminating quoting practices. In general, the other voice is effectively found backgrounded, if not suppressed, in its oral performance, unless explicitly introduced by a digital quotative.

Language in Research and Teaching

Proceedings from the CALS Conference 2016

Edited by Marija Brala Vukanović and Anita Memišević

This book aims at bridging language research and language teaching and contains four sections. It opens with two papers which relate language to literature: one exploring childlike language, the second investigating the distinction between literary and non-literary text categorization principles. Next are the papers on multicultural and sociolinguistic topics, including a paper on English as an international language, and two papers on the perception of bilingualism in education. The third thematic section explores semantics, with two papers on prefixes and one on metaphor. The final thematic section is dedicated to syntax, with one paper on complex predicates, one on syntactic complexity in spontaneous spoken language and one of Croatian null and overt subject pronouns.

Numeral constructions in Polish are known for their complex morpho-syntax: in particular, depending on the type, case and syntactic context, the numeral may show properties of the adjective or the noun. This volume presents a comprehensive analysis of these constructions set in the current generative-minimalist model of grammar, with elements of nano-syntax. The authors pay particular attention to a feature-based derivation of the numeral construction in its different versions, including complex multiplicative numerals, as well as its distribution in the clause. Numerals in the subject position, with their peculiar case and agreement features become a focal point of attention. Their properties receive a principled account through the use of the case projection sequence and disciplined movements within it.

Le présent ouvrage se consacre à la question de la définition lexicographique des unités lexicales adjectivales, à travers l’analyse de plus de 80 adjectifs du français et de leurs définitions et la proposition subséquente d’un modèle de paraphrasage, au niveau lexicographique, de ce type d’unité lexicale. Il se distingue en cela des études antérieures, qui se sont principalement focalisées sur des questions générales concernant l’adjectif, comme par exemple son positionnement par rapport au nom (antéposition ou postposition), son rôle d’attribut ou d’épithète, ou encore ses propriétés morphologiques, syntaxiques et sémantiques.

Nos réflexions se concentreront, dans un premier temps, sur le traitement lexicographique de l’adjectif, dans les définitions offertes par les dictionnaires traditionnels. Cela nous permettra, par la suite, d’en proposer une normalisation : pour ce faire, nous nous inspirerons des principes fournis par la Lexicologie Explicative et Combinatoire.

Opérateurs discursifs du français, 2

Eléments de description sémantique et pragmatique

Series:

Edited by Jean-Claude Anscombre, Pierre Patrick Haillet and María Luisa Donaire Fernández

Cet ouvrage fait suite à un premier volume (publié en 2013) consacré à la description de plusieurs opérateurs discursifs – entités linguistiques dont l’emploi a pour effet de mettre en place une stratégie discursive spécifique. Leur fonctionnement est appréhendé à travers les propriétés morphosyntaxiques, sémantiques et pragmatiques qui caractérisent ces entités. Chaque opérateur est présenté de la même façon : propriétés linguistiques, structure polyphonique, brève notice diachronique et tableau récapitulatif des propriétés, l’objectif étant de faire apparaître tant la spécificité de chacune des entités analysées que les liens qu'elle entretient avec d'autres opérateurs auxquels elle s'apparente sémantiquement. Les descriptions proposées sont illustrées par de nombreux exemples authentiques. Un texte théorique complète le volume, précisant la notion de polyphonie comme outil descriptif, et venant développer le texte à ce propos contenu dans le premier volume.

Rethinking Community

Discourse, Identity and Citizenship in the European Union

Series:

Giuditta Caliendo

Despite the undeniably impressive achievements of the EU, forms of resistance to the European integration process remain strong in numerous quarters. Drawing upon a theoretical framework centred on the dimension of discourse as social practice, this book takes the literature on EU discourse a step further by integrating insights from discourse studies with key models derived from the domain of political science. The aim is to explore how recent socio-political transformations have affected the way in which the EU discursively represents itself as a legitimate political entity. The idea behind this cross-disciplinary approach is that discourse theory can contribute to a critical renewal of EU studies by drawing attention to the rhetorical aspects that are constitutive of social structures and identities. The analytical parts of this corpus-assisted study explore the evolution of discursive practices in various EU genres at two disruptive moments in the recent history of European integration: the rejection of the draft EU Constitutional Treaty in France and the Netherlands and the UK referendum on EU membership.

The volume deals with the topic of illocutionary shell nouns in English, i.e. nouns that encapsulate a content that is usually expressed in a complement or in a separate sentence or clause, and report or characterize it as a specific speech act. The book reports a usage-based study of the complementation patterns in a corpus of 335 illocutionary nouns distributed across the five Searlean classes of assertive, commissive, directive, expressive, and declarative nouns. The investigation aims to verify the association between the meaning of these nouns and their complementation patterns, and between their semantic similarity and the similarity in the distribution of complementation patterns.
