This publication constitutes a selection of papers presented at the 6 th International Symposium on the Acquisition of Second Language Speech, New Sounds 2010, held in Poznań, Poland. It consists of two volumes, presenting state-of-the-art achievements and perspectives for future research related to the acquisition of second language phonetics and phonology. The key issues include the development of explanatory frameworks of phonological SLA, the expanded scope of domains under investigation, modern methods applied in phonological research, and a new take on the causal variables related to ultimate proficiency in L2 speech. This second volume contains a selection of 26 articles that cover a wide variety of themes including L2 speech perception and production, segmental and prosodic features, as well as factors related to individual variability and foreign accent.

, de traslación, representado en el film d’art francés o en el cine histórico italiano. Naturalmente, la experimentación y la creación de lenguajes continúa, no en el tipo de cine francés que era simplemente teatro filmado, pero sí en Griffith, en los italianos y en los nórdicos.

Ince en América, la de los italianos, la de los suecos Sjöstrom o Stiller y, ya en los años veinte, la de Eisenstein y otros soviéticos es propiamente clásica en varios sentidos: está cercana a la época formativa, elabora a menudo mitos recientes, y se convierte

been translated into Chinese (2013: 119–133). 4.1.1  Mailer in Europe and The Balkans Throughout Europe, Mailer is widely considered one of the most important American authors of the twentieth century, particularly in the former Republic of Yugoslavia. Mailer’s popularity and critical reception in Europe cannot be explained only due to his good connections or, for example, that he was in Europe with his first wife studying at the Sorbonne in Paris when his first novel was published on May 6, 1948. The Naked and the Dead received excellent reviews also from European

, America, Africa, South America and the tropics. Writing in ‘modern’ times, as nation-states emerged and Britain expanded its empire, and reflecting her contemporaries’ engagement with the world beyond national borders, Landon has her English characters busily cross national borders and tests their prejudices in encounters with the ‘foreign’ Other(s) and with different points of view. Their travels to Italy and Spain are not just a diversion but a thematically and discursively integral part of the novel. They also develop through travel and experience of the world, à la

Those who would later join the cult of childhood were no doubt influenced by the challenges to a strictly materialistic worldview posed not only by the Inklings but also by other proponents of the supernatural and the paranormal such as Colin Wilson, author of The Occult and Beyond the Occult, and Louis Pawles and Jacques Bergier who co-authored the widely read (largely unreliable) Morning

They opposed the taking of life, even in battle or the execution of murderers, and always made a nuisance of themselves on such occasions…The Christians, it was well known, were all mad, and no one took them seriously” (Christopher The Prince in Waiting 109
