Colonização linguística e outros escritos representa um longo caminho de pesquisas que realizei e publiquei nos últimos 15 anos sobre os destinos da língua portuguesa em alguns territórios colonizados por Portugal. O livro como um todo traz resultados desse percurso marcado, sobretudo, por uma questão central: quais os sentidos de língua portuguesa como língua de colonização e, posteriormente, de descolonização? Ao longo do livro, ao estabelecer os sentidos para língua portuguesa em nações colonizadas, percebe-se o apagamento da diversidade linguística bem como o silenciamento da heterogeneidade constitutiva das próprias línguas de colonização. Tanto durante a colonização linguística, como durante os processos políticos de descolonização, nos países assumidamente multilíngues, a gramatização com base em gramáticas e dicionários não resultou simplesmente em uma descrição das línguas para dotá-las de instrumentos linguísticos necessários ao seu ensino e aprendizado. Ao contrário, se o processo de gramatização produziu no Ocidente, durante as grandes descobertas, formas de conhecimento linguístico e, consequentemente, de domínio sobre as línguas e culturas das terras desconhecidas, gramatizar línguas línguas autóctones no século XX em países que se encontram em processo de descolonização pode ser, mais uma vez, dividir sociedades e excluir sujeitos com base na língua que falam. A originalidade de Colonização linguística está na produção do conceito de colonização linguística e na divulgação de textos históricos, alguns ainda inéditos sobre a colonização brasileira e moçambicana.

Dieser Band ist ein Plädoyer für die Anerkennung der biologischen Realität, die der Translation als menschlicher Handlung zu Grunde liegt. Die Autorinnen stellen konventionelle Axiome des translationswissenchaftlichen Kanons in Frage und gleichzeitig eine neue Definition von Translation vor. Aus der Synthese vermeintlicher Dichotomien wie Biologie oder Kultur, emotional oder rational, Denken oder Fühlen entstehen neue Begrifflichkeiten, welche die Translation in ein neues Licht rücken. Der biokulturelle Ansatz der Autorinnen verankert Sprache, Kommunikation und Kognition fest in der Spontaneität des Lebens und erklärt diese als dynamische bio-logische Prozesse.

The Non-Surviving Preterite-Present Verbs in English

The Demise of *dugan, munan, *-nugan, *þurfan, and unnan

Series:

Anna Wojtyś

Based on four historical corpora, the book is a comprehensive study of the demise of five preterite-present verbs in English. It offers a detailed description of their distribution in Old and Middle English. The subsequent comparison of the forms and uses of the preterite-presents in the two periods allows the author to suggest the reasons for their elimination from the language. The discussion focuses on phonological and morphological changes the verbs underwent as well as on the syntactic structures they appeared in. Yet, the study does not ignore factors of extra-linguistic nature such as genres in which the verbs were frequently found and the potential rivalry with other items of native and foreign origin.

The ubiquity of mobile devices has opened the way to extending learning environments far beyond the constraints of the traditional foreign language classroom. This book seeks to advance the knowledge about effective learning and teaching of English for Medical Purposes supported by mobile environments. The author investigates the effectiveness of the use of a mobile version of a flashcard spaced-repetition learning platform. In conclusion, she presents core principles of an educational solution that supports the ongoing and situated learning of English for Medical Purposes by designing a mobile spaced-repetition medical vocabulary tutor («Mobile Medical English Companion»).

The book explores possibilities for happening in education. It outlines characteristics for happening which are viewed in relation to educational discourses to determine how learners and teachers might be involved. In connection with this, the author considers critical pedagogy, teaching as a liminal practice, creative pedagogy and multiple intelligences. The book also provides details of a participatory research strategy, based upon bricolage and the rhizome, implemented for an inquiry into happening and EFL teaching in a Polish school. The author suggests there may be resistance to the use of happening in schools due to the dominance of transmission-based teaching and unfavourable attitudes towards creativity.

Exemplarisches Valenz- und Konstruktionswörterbuch deutscher Verben

Die Differenzierung und Klassifizierung der Begleiter des deutschen Verbs und ihre lexikographische Umsetzung in neuer Konzeption

Series:

Hans-Jörg Schwenk

Mit dem Buch und dem darin vorgestellten exemplarischen Valenz- und Konstruktionswörterbuch deutscher Verben wird ein völlig neues Kapitel in der valenzorientierten Lexikographie aufgeschlagen. Die Neuerung besteht vor allem darin, dass die valenzgebundenen Begleiter des Verbs nicht mehr nur wie bisher in obligatorische und fakultative Ergänzungen gespalten, sondern erstmals die syntaktisch nicht notwendigen Aktanten ihrerseits wiederum nach den Kriterien der semantischen Impliziertheit sowie der Redundanz in optionale und fakultative Mitgaben, ohnehin nur optionale Beigaben und die ebenfalls ausschließlich durch das Merkmal der Optionalität geprägten Zugaben geschieden und hinsichtlich ihres Status entsprechend gekennzeichnet werden.

Das Buch lässt die Problematik der Gliederung des syntaktischen Umfelds des deutschen Verbs in einem völlig neuen Licht erscheinen. Der Autor weist nach, dass das bislang im Bereich der Differenzierung und Klassifizierung der Begleiter des Verbs angenommene Gerüst, das sich auf die Dichotomie bestehend aus Ergänzungen und Angaben stützt, nicht trägt. Dieses Gerüst ist daher aufzugeben und durch ein quaternäres System, das sich in die Bestandteile der Mitgaben, Beigaben, Zugaben und Angaben verzweigt, zu ersetzen. Der Autor zeigt darüber hinaus, wie sich das dort erarbeitete und neu erstellte theoretische Konzept lexikographisch aufbereiten und im Rahmen eines Valenz- und Konstruktionswörterbuchs verwerten lässt.

This book explores two strands of Audiovisual Translation referred to as «research» and «use». As their points of convergence as well as divergence are brought to light, the contributors show that the two tend to overlap and cross-pollinate. The volume’s inquiries of linguistic, cultural, sociological, computational, educational and historical nature give a comprehensive up-to-date account of AVT as an expanding and heterogeneous, yet internally coherent, field of scientific and professional endeavour.

«The book offers a good balance of chapters dealing with new topics and chapters dealing with more established AVT topics from new angles. It is a must read for TS students and academics but also for practitioners and for translators from other domains, given the increased prominence and diversity of AVT modes both in TS research and translation practice.»
