Talking Linguistics (4) - A Linguistic Study of Saudi Press Discourse
Full title: A Linguistic Study of Saudi Press Discourse: The Analysis of Conceptual Metaphors in Discourses of Women Presented by: Ms. Fahda Alsheikh King Saud University Abstract: This study investigates the uses of metaphor in Saudi Arabian Press Discourse during the past five months (July-December, 2018) on the topic of women’s work. It examines the emergence of metaphorical language in the articles related to recent women participation in the workforce. The study adopts Lakoff and Johnson’s Conceptual Metaphor Theory as its major theoretical framework and the corpus linguistics methodologies of the established discourse analysts Charteris-Black, Rash, Semino, Alkhammash who adopt the same framework. In addition, a detailed consideration of Semino’s notion of metaphorical creativity will be discussed. This study also employs thematic metaphor analysis to enrich the conceptual metaphor analysis and to identify salient themes to the topic of Saudi Women’s work. Two themes are identified: the representation of women’s work and gender ideologies in relation to women’s work. It builds upon the findings of previous studies on critical metaphor analysis of metaphors employed in other women discourses on the social media and draws attention to the need for more study of metaphors in women discourse.
The Challenge of Globalization in Foreign Language Education
In a recent position paper on teaching foreign languages in an era of globalization, Claire Kramsch wrote: “Through its mobility of people and capital, its global technologies, and its global information networks globalization has changed the conditions under which foreign languages (FLs) are taught, learned, and used. It has destabilized the codes, norms, and conventions that are putting into question the monolingual foundation of FL education and challenging monolingual ideologies at play in our society. These changes call for a more reflective, interpretive, historically grounded and politically engaged pedagogy than was called for by the communicative language teaching of the eighties” (2014, p. 296). In this presentation, Professor Kramsch will update this assessment of the situation by discussing recent developments in applied linguistics: the multilingual turn (May, 2014), the transdisciplinary turn (Douglas Fir Group, 2016), and various trans-perspectives (Hawkins & Mori, forthcoming) that are redefining what it means to learn and use one or several additional languages. She will also discuss two current trends that are challenging the very nature of language and that raise serious ethical questions for collegiate education: the algorithms being developed by the computer industry that strive to establish full translatability across linguistic codes, and the proliferation of purely phatic uses of language in a spectacle society obsessed with social media. Keynote Speaker: Claire Kramsch is Professor Emerita of German and Education at University of California–Berkeley. Her area of research is applied linguistics, with emphasis on social, cultural and stylistic approaches to language study and she has published numerous books, articles, and chapters in these areas. She was, until 2006, founding Director of the Berkeley Language Center, a research and development unit for all foreign language teachers on campus. Among her many awards, she has received UC Berkeley's Distinguished Teaching Award, the Distinguished Service Award from the Modern Language Association, and the Distinguished Scholarship and Service Award from the American Association for Applied Linguistics.

Interview with Sali Tagliamonte
We're really excited to have gotten to interview Sali Tagliamonte at the Linguistic Society of America meeting in January! Dr. Tagliamonte is a full professor at the University of Toronto, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. She's written a bunch of books and articles about sociolinguistics, and how languages shift and vary over time. You can find out more about her and her work at http://individual.utoronto.ca/tagliamonte/ In our interview, we discussed the following topics: - why it's so important to investigate how teens use language, and what facets of adolescent speech she finds most interesting - what differences we can find in spoken vs. online language use - the Toronto English Project, and the changes we see in people's language use over the course of their lives - how language might look in the future - how to better inform people about how language variation works - the role of social media in telling people about linguistics, and in language change ... and more! Thanks again to Dr. Tagliamonte for speaking with us.

Noam Chomsky: On Power and Ideology | The New School
Presented by Haymarket Books and the Schools of Public Engagement (http://www.newschool.edu/public-engagement) at The New School (http://www.newschool.edu), Noam Chomsky discusses the persistent and largely invariant features of U.S. foreign policy — in the words of U.S. planners, "the overall framework of order” — and its intimate relationship with U.S. domestic policy. MIT Institute Professor (emeritus) of linguistics and philosophy Noam Chomsky is widely regarded to be one of the foremost critics of U.S. foreign policy in the world. He has published numerous groundbreaking books, articles, and essays on global politics, history, and linguistics. His recent books include The New York Times bestsellers Hegemony or Survival and Failed States, as well as Hopes and Prospects and Masters of Mankind. Haymarket Books is currently reissuing twelve of his classic books in new editions. Location: John L. Tishman Auditorium, University Center Saturday, September 19, 2015 at 7:00 pm

Methodology and Citation - The State Of The Art In Linguistics, SOAS University of London
http://www.soas.ac.uk/linguistics/ This seminar titled "Methodology and Citation: The State of the Art in Linguistics" was given by Lauren Gawne as part of the Linguistics Departmental Seminar Series at SOAS University of London on 17 November 2015. Find out more about this event at http://goo.gl/09CRLc The notion of reproducible research has received considerable attention in recent years from physical scientists, life scientists, social and behavioural scientists, and computational scientists. Within linguistics there is growing awareness of the importance of producing a coherent corpus for analysis. Within descriptive linguistics we have been encouraged to consider that data collected with documentary methods should be used to enable verification of descriptive claims based upon them (Himmelmann 1998). The last decade has provided a wealth of literature on good practice in language documentation, including (but no means limited to) Gippert, Himmelmann & Mosel (2006), Bowern (2008), Chelliah & De Reuse (2011) and Thieberger (2012). The result is that linguists in this field are more aware of good methodological practices for data collection than ever. In this paper I present a survey of 271 journal articles, 50 published descriptive grammars and 50 grammar-based dissertations with regard to how explicitly authors discuss their data collection methods, and what kinds of information they include. The publications surveyed are from a ten year period from 2003 to 2012. Journal articles come from nine journals selected for breadth of geography, linguistic subfield, and theoretical approach. While there are some examples of strong methodologically-driven writing, the majority of authors do not include key documentary metadata or methodological information. The result is that it is often difficult or impossible to verify or reproduce descriptive linguistic claims, making descriptive linguistics one of the few social sciences to not require researchers to back up claims with an explicit statement of methodology. This research is part of a larger project to improve the quality of methodological description and citation of primary data in linguistics. This talk offers practical suggestions for researchers at any career stage to improve description of methodology in their own research. I also discuss ways we can improve our practice and expectations as a whole discipline. References Bowern, Claire. 2008. Linguistic fieldwork: a practical guide.

A Systemic Approach to Appraisal: Identifying Opinion and Sentiment in Text
Sentiment analysis aims to identify the subjective content of text: what kinds of opinions are being expressed, and how? This is a relatively new field with many applications in information extraction and natural language processing.    Systemic Functional Linguistics deals explicitly with how we use language to express sentiment, using a set of systems called Appraisal. This talk introduces a framework for extracting Appraisal, based explicitly on this theory and using new and existing computational techniques.   The talk will cover an introduction to SFL and Appraisal, an explanation of the computational processes involved, and present results from recent experiments in using this approach to classify movie and product reviews.

APPLE Lecture: The health and psychological effects of translating emotional experiences into words
http://www.tc.columbia.edu/arts-and-humanities/applied-linguistics-tesol/activities/apple-lecture/ Thirty years ago the first study on expressive writing was published. Almost 50 students were asked to write about either the most traumatic experience of their lives or about superficial topics for four days, 15 minutes a day. Those who wrote about traumas showed improvements in physical and psychological health. Over 400 expressive writing studies later, we are beginning to understand how and why writing about emotional experiences can influence the ways people think, feel, and function. Analysis of expressive writing essays points to the importance of perspective switching and the construction of a narrative. The roles of putting emotional experiences into words in influencing working memory, sleep, and social functioning will be discussed. Speaker: James W. Pennebaker is the Regents Professor of Psychology and Executive Director of a university-wide educational initiative called Project 2021 at the University of Texas at Austin. Pennebaker’s earliest work examined the psychology of physical symptoms. The symptom research ultimately led to his discovery of expressive writing which found that writing about emotional upheavals improved physical health and immune function. More recent studies have explored natural language. He finds that everyday word use is related to personality, deception, status, group dynamics, and emotional states. He is now working with his university’s senior administration to rethink 21st century education models. Author or editor of 10 books and over 300 scientific articles, Pennebaker has received several university and international awards for his research and teaching. His most recent books are The Secret Life of Pronouns: What Our Words Say About Us (Bloomsbury, 2011) and Opening Up by Writing it Down (Guilford, 2016).

How language began | Dan Everett | TEDxSanFrancisco
Dan Everett brings us back in time to the Homo Erectus to share how language began and why it is the ultimate evolutionary tool to share knowledge. Dan Everett was born in Southern California. He completed an undergraduate degree in biblical studies from the Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and his Master’s and ScD in linguistics at the Universidade Estadual de Campinas in Brazil. From 1977, he has regularly conducted research on the Pirahã language of Brazil. He has also conducted research on Tzeltal (Mexico), Selish (USA), Arawan (Brazil), Satere (Brazil), Wari’ (Brazil) among many others. He has published fourteen books and more than 110 articles and has lectured around the world on his research. He converted to Christianity at 17 years of age and was a committed, evangelical Christian until abandoning his faith due to lessons he learned from the Pirahãs (as discussed in Don’t sleep, there are snakes). His most recent books are Dark Matter of the Mind: The Culturally Articulated Unconscious (University of Chicago Press) and How Language Began: The Story of Humanity's Greatest Invention (W.W. Norton/Liveright). This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

Mismodeling Indo-European Origins: The Assault On Historical Linguistics | GeoCurrents
Presented by Martin W. Lewis and Asya Pereltsvaig, from http://www.GeoCurrents.info Can language spread be modeled using computational techniques designed to trace the diffusion of viruses? As recently announced in the New York Times, a team of biologists claims to have solved one of the major riddles of human prehistory, the origins of the Indo-European language family, by applying methodologies from epidemiology. In actuality, this research, published in Science, does nothing of the kind. As the talk presented here shows, the assumptions on which it rests are demonstrably false, the data that it uses are woefully incomplete and biased, and the model that it employs generates error at every turn, undermining the knowledge generated by more than two centuries of research in historical linguistics and threatening our understanding of the human past. The talk presented here was originally delivered at Stanford University on December 13, 2012, sponsored by Stanford's Program in History and Philosophy of Science and Technology and co-sponsored by the Department of Linguistics. After a brief introduction by Kären Wigen, chair of the Stanford History Department, the presenters jointly deliver an address that lasts for some 50 minutes. A fifteen- minute period of questions and answers rounds out the video presentation. The talk begins with Martin Lewis providing a brief examination of the media coverage of the issue. As he shows, not only the New York Times but also a number of other major news outlets, including Scientific American and the BBC, unreasonably portrayed the Science article as constituting a major scientific breakthrough. He then moves on to consider the significance of the topic, arguing that Indo-European origins and expansion has long been one of the most ideologically fraught issues of the human past, and that politically charged preconceptions continue to muddle scholarly interpretations. Asya Pereltsvaig subsequently explains the model used by the Science team, and then goes on to outline its linguistic failings, examining matters of vocabulary, grammar, and phonology. Martin Lewis then outlines the geo-historical problems of the Science paper before offering a few observations on the creation of ignorance. Asya Pereltsvaig concludes the presentation with a discussion of the languishing condition of historical linguistics and a warning about the possibility of generating "lodged fallacies" in the public imagination. Further elaborations of the critique of the Science article can be found in a series of articles on the presenters' blog, GeoCurrents, located here: http://geocurrents.info/category/indo-european-origins Abstract of the Bouckaert et al. article: http://www.sciencemag.org/content/337/6097/957.abstract NY Times piece referenced: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/24/science/indo-european-languages-originated-in-anatolia-analysis-suggests.html?smid=pl-share

The Linguistic Miracle of Qur'an & Prophethood of Muhammed (ﷺ) - Hamza Tzortzis
Hamza describes in very rational terms the existence of the prophet, and the claims that he made; that he was the messenger of Allah. Hamza describes the possibilities surrounding this claim, and uses ration to prove that indeed, he was the messenger of Allah. Hamza Tzortzis describes the miracle of Islam, that of the challenge of the Quran. The miracles that the previous prophets had at their disposal left the earth along with them, and it is this one remaining miracle that remains with us today; the linguistic miracle of the Qur'an -- proof of the nature of this book. _________________ ABOUT THE SPEAKER - Hamza Andreas Tzortzis is an international public speaker on Islam. He is a writer with articles, essays and commentaries on political philosophy, the philosophy of religion and society. Hamza is an intellectual activist actively engaging on issues pertaining to religion, social cohesion and politics. Hamza regularly participates in debates and symposiums with leading intellectuals, public speakers and academics on topics concerning western and Islamic philosophy, politics and current affairs. For example he participated in a debate with the editor of the Philosophy Now magazine Rick Lewis, entitled "God: Delusion or Truth?", he participated in a debate with the best selling author, philosophy lecturer and chair of the British Humanist Association's Philosophers Group Peter Cave on "Can We Live Better Lives Without Religion?" More recently Hamza debated the highly acclaimed professor, Simon Blackburn, who is one of the leading atheist and humanist academics in the world. The debates was held in the historic Cambridge University debating chambers. Hamza regularly appears in the media explaining and demystifying Islam and providing unique perspectives on current affairs. He has appeared on the BBC, BBC Arabic, BBC Radio 4, Press TV, Islam Channel, Ummah TV, Iqra TV, TV3 (Malaysia) and National Public Radio of America. Hamza lectures all around the world on topics related to Islam, philosophy and politics. He is one of the main initiators of the contemporary emergence of Muslim public speakers using Islamic and Western philosophy to shed light on Islam and demystify its way of life. _________________ Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/fanarqatar Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/FanarQatar Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/fanarqatar Like DigitalMimbar on Facebook: http://www.fb.com/TheMimbar Follow DigitalMimbar on Twitter: http://twitter.com/DigitalMimbar

Indo-European migrations | Wikipedia audio article
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Indo-European migrations Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= Indo-European migrations were the migrations of pastoral peoples speaking the Proto-Indo-European language (PIE), who departed from the Yamnaya and related cultures in the Pontic–Caspian steppe, starting at c. 4000 BCE. Their descendants spread throughout Europe and parts of Asia, forming new cultures with the people they met on their way, including the Corded Ware culture in Northern Europe and the Vedic culture in the Indian subcontinent. These migrations ultimately seeded the cultures and languages of most of Europe, Greater Iran, and much of the Indian subcontinent (and subsequently resulted in the largest and most broadly spoken language family in the world). Modern knowledge of these migrations is based on data from linguistics, archaeology, anthropology and genetics. Linguistics describes the similarities between various languages, and the linguistic laws at play in the changes in those languages (see Indo-European studies). Archaeological data describes the spread of the Proto-Indo-European culture and language in several stages: from the Proto-Indo-European homeland (probably situated in the Pontic–Caspian steppe), into Western Europe, Central, South and (very sporadically) Eastern Asia by migrations and by language shift through elite-recruitment as described by anthropological research. Recent genetic research has a growing contribution to the understanding of the historical relations between various historical cultures. The Indo-European languages and cultures spread in various stages. Early migrations from c. 4200–3000 BCE brought archaic proto-Indo-European into the lower Danube valley, Anatolia, and the Altai region.Proto-Celtic and Proto-Italic probably developed in and spread from Central Europe into western Europe after new Yamnaya migrations into the Danube Valley, while Proto-Germanic and Proto-Balto-Slavic may have developed east of the Carpathian mountains, at present-day Ukraine, moving north and spreading with the Corded Ware culture in Middle Europe (third millennium BCE). Alternatively, a European branch of Indo-European dialects, termed "North-west Indo-European" and associated with the Beaker culture, may have been ancestral to not only Celtic and Italic, but also to Germanic and Balto-Slavic.The Indo-Iranian language and culture emerged at the Sintashta culture (c. 2100–1800 BCE), at the eastern border of the Yamnaya horizon and the Corded ware culture, growing into the Andronovo culture (c. 1800–800 BCE). Indo-Aryans moved into the Bactria–Margiana Archaeological Complex (c. 2300–1700 BCE) and spread to the Levant (Mitanni), northern India (Vedic people, c. 1500 BCE), and China (Wusun). The Iranian languages spread throughout the steppes with the Scyths and into Iran with the Medes, Parthians and Persians from ca. 800 BCE.

My attempt to quantify bias in news media | Sophia Lobkowicz | TEDxYouth@ISPrague
In March 2016, still in her first year of high school, Sophia presented the results of her applied linguistics research project to a panel of professional academics at Prague's Charles University. She was curious about the views US media has towards migration, so she analysed the language used in articles on migration in specific US media sources. We often have ‘gut feelings’ about levels of objectivity in the media, but is there some way to verify those intuitions? Through statistical analysis using language databases, Sophia attempts to move one step closer to measuring bias. Sophia Lobkowicz is a high school student with US roots who was born and raised in Prague. Her family heritage includes relatives whose lives were disrupted by tumultuous international events in the last century.

Carl Blyth @ Columbia University - Languaculture: From language-and-culture to language-as-culture
An event of the Columbia Language Resource Center (lrc.columbia.edu), this guest presentation was given at Columbia University on October 30th, 2015 by Professor Carl Blyth of the University of Texas at Austin. Professor Blyth has shared the following summary of his talk: In many approaches to formal instruction, a foreign language is routinely conceptualized as a fixed code of conventionalized form-meaning pairings resembling Saussure’s well known concept of “langue.” In addition, the “language” is represented as a related but separate object with respect to the foreign “culture.” As such, despite the recent 'social turn' in applied linguistics, language study largely ignores the complex relationship between language, culture and thought. In this talk, I will argue that language programs should seek to raise students’ understanding of language use as culturally influenced meaning-making. In keeping with the new complex object of study, I adopt the term ‘languaculture,’ defined as the “cultural aspects of language” (Risager 2006, 2007) or “linguistically mediated cultural meaning and behaviors in interaction” (Diaz 2013). I will exemplify how the concept of languaculture can be applied to classroom teaching with an example of an upper-division French course that employs concept-based instruction (Negueruela 2008, van Compernolle 2014), a pedagogy grounded in sociocultural theory. Finally, I will demonstrate instructional methods and classroom activities that promote languaculture awareness, e.g., metapragmatic discussion, interactional analysis, and student self-reflection. Carl S. Blyth (PhD, Cornell University) is Associate Professor of French Linguistics and Director of the Center of Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (COERLL) at the University of Texas at Austin (USA). His research interests include computer-mediated discourse, cross-cultural and intercultural pragmatics, pedagogical grammar and open educational approaches to language learning. He has published on metalinguistic awareness, the affordances of social reading for L2 literacy development, native and non-native role models for language learning, L2 narrative discourse, online stance taking and interactive frames in L2 discourse. He has authored or co-authored several books and book chapters as well as journal articles in venues such as the Modern Language Journal, CALICO Journal, and Journal of Educational Computing Research. Most recently, he has published a co-edited book with Dale Koike called Dialogue in Multilingual and Multimodal Communities (2015, John Benjamins). He currently serves on the editorial board of Intercultural Pragmatics and Issues in Language Program Direction.

"What's wrong with them?" Exploring Preferred Gender Pronouns in the Media | ULAB 2016
Presentation at the Undergraduate Linguistics Association of Britain (ULAB) conference held at Aberdeen University 8-10th April 2016 Abstract: As choosing preferred gender pronouns becomes a more widely accepted choice in social settings and official documentation, how is this issue considered and discussed in the media? Does the way this topic is presented affect the opinions and attitudes of the audience? Approximately 641, 000 people in the UK identify as being gender nonconforming in some way (GIRES.ORG: 2015). Many of these individuals do not feel they fit within the binary social constructions of gender and that therefore the ‘standard’ gendered personal pronouns do not accurately convey their identities. Due to a lack of previous research within the field, with exceptions to Baron (1986) and Curzan (2003), this study aims to investigate preferred gender pronouns and their representation in mainstream media. This study uses data analysis of online newspaper articles looking at recent events which are relevant to LGBT+ issues, such as the introduction of the gender neutral pronoun ‘hen’ to the official dictionary of the Swedish language, and the controversy around universities allowing students to select their preferred gender pronouns on institutional registers. This paper uses critical discourse analysis to examine both the text presented in the articles and the social contexts by which they are surrounded, as a method of working towards social justice. Ultimately, this leads to a conclusion that the concept of preferred gender pronouns is portrayed as new and strange, and is therefore surrounded by a certain level of confusion. As the discourse on this topic continues, it will inevitably affect the mind-sets, opinions, and levels of acceptance of the wider public. References Baron, D. (1986). Grammar and gender.

J.R.R. Tolkien's imaginary languages - by Edward Vajda, WWU Linguistics Program director
J.R.R. Tolkien, wildly popular for his authorship of the fantasy trilogy "The Lord of the Rings," was by profession an unprepossessing Medievalist and historical linguist. In this lecture, delivered at Western Washington University Nov. 14, 2012, Edward Vajda, a professor in the Modern and Classical Languages Department at Western, discusses "Tolkien's Imaginary Languages." Tolkien's extensive knowledge of world languages both ancient and modern lent itself to his creation of the artificial languages that add so much realistic depth to his fictional writing. Vajda's presentation will describe the languages Tolkien created for his Middle Earth by revealing their connection with the actual spoken languages he studied during his academic career. Watch this lecture to explore the ingenious sound symbolism and etymological connotations employed by this master storyteller—and learn a great many things about the real languages of Eurasia along the way.

2016 International TESOL Conference: TBLT, by Dr. Jonathan Newton
Dr Jonathan Newton is a Senior Lecturer and Director of the B.Ed. (TESOL) Programme at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. He has worked in language teaching and teacher education for more than 25 years in New Zealand, Malaysia and China. His research focuses on five broad areas of classroom language teaching and learning: teaching L2 listening and speaking, L2 vocabulary learning, task-based language teaching (TBLT), intercultural language teaching and learning (ICLT), and communication training for the multicultural workplace. He has published more than 45 book chapters and articles in leading applied linguistics journals and has co-authored two books, one with Paul Nation, Teaching ESL/EFL Listening and Speaking (2009), and a second with Nicky Riddiford, Workplace Talk in Action: An ESOL Resource (2010). He is currently working on a co-authored book, Teaching English Language Learners in Colleges and Universities: Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening, due for publication in early 2017. Task-based language teaching: Joining the dots between teachers, classrooms and scholarship Abstract A growing strand of scholarship in task-based language teaching (TBLT) explores the ways in which teachers mediate the practice of TBLT (e.g., East, 2012; Edwards & Willis, 2005; Erlam, 2016; Newton & Trang, forthcoming; Van der Braden, 2006). This research highlights alignments and misalignments between teacher cognition (the beliefs, perceptions and interpretations that teachers bring to their understanding of tasks), teaching practices, and advocacy for TBLT in the research literature. In this talk I first survey key themes and insights from this research of relevance to teachers seeking to refine their practice of teaching with tasks. I then present findings from recent research which investigates how teachers are making sense of task-based teaching in a variety of countries and teaching contexts. I discuss key challenges faced by these teachers when teaching through tasks and the innovative practices they have adopted to address these challenges. A common theme emerging from this research concerns the affordances and constraints offered by the textbooks teachers are often required to use. I conclude by considering the implications of this research for materials design, for classroom teaching and for English teacher education and professional learning.

LSA 2017 - Michel DeGraff - Public Lecture July 14th
Lecture Title: Revolutions Across Space and Time As a Haitian linguist, my Forum Lecture scheduled on France’s Bastille Day, soon after the celebration of U.S. Independence Day, makes me think of “revolutions across space and time.” Indeed, underlying one of my current projects is the urgent need for a “revolution” in linguistics. What I have in mind is the need to bridge one gap between our core universalist-egalitarian assumptions in linguistics and the power-knowledge hierarchies at the root and, still, at the core of Creole studies and the consequences thereof in the lives of Creole speakers. Think of the “Pidgin-to-Creole” dogma in most of our introduction-to-linguistics textbooks and what such dogma implies for the status of Creole languages and their speakers in the “real world” beyond academia. My revolutionary struggle (a tall order, it seems, even among well meaning “progressive” and “liberal” colleagues) is to inspire a new sort of linguistics whereby our academic research can help make the world better by bringing about the sort of linguistic equality that is a precondition for socio-economic and political equity. In this Forum Lecture, I’ll share some of my research agenda where linguistics drives on-the-ground projects (such as the MIT-Haiti Initiative: http://haiti.mit.edu) that engage technology, pedagogy and local languages—such as my native Haitian Creole (“Kreyòl”) as a full-fledged normal language that belies the “Pidgin-to-Creole” dogma and its problematic theoretical, empirical and sociological corollaries. The ultimate goal is to enlist research and education for sustainable development and equal opportunity for all. The benefits of such “revolution” will span space and time as well, keeping in mind the too many communities (some 40% of the world’s population according to UNESCO) whose native languages are still excluded in classrooms—these are the very languages that we linguists so love studying in our field work, research labs and journal articles.

What is MEDIATED STYLISTICS? What does MEDIATED STYLISTICS mean? MEDIATED STYLISTICS meaning - MEDIATED STYLISTICS definition - MEDIATED STYLISTICS explanation. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Mediated stylistics is a new and still emerging approach to the analysis of media texts (e.g. news programs, newspaper articles). Its aims are twofold: first, to take seriously the idea that media texts (e.g. news programs, newspaper articles) involve 'the construction of stories by other means'; and second to take seriously the idea that in an age marked by digital connectivity, media texts are inherently interactive phenomena. To meet these aims, mediated stylistics has brought together the analytic toolkits of discursive psychology—which is finely attuned to the contextual specificities of interaction—and stylistics—which is finely attuned to the grammatical/rhetorical/narratorial specificities of texts as texts. Recent research in which mediated stylistics has been put to work, for instance, has shown that and how mediated representation of issues like sexism, sexualisation, alleged rape and violence against women can differ, and differ in rhetorically consequential ways, from the original un-mediated source material. As a broadly ethnomethodological approach, mediated stylistics is strongly influenced by discursive psychology (DP), as well as the sociology of scientific knowledge (SSK), membership categorization analysis (MCA) and the work of stylisticians like Mick Short, Paul Simpson and Lesley Jeffries in which the analytic utility of stylistics to and for an understanding of data other than strictly 'literary' texts becomes immediately apparent. What unites these approaches is their rejection of a particularly widespread understanding of language in which words-in-here-on-a-page name things-out-there-in-the-world. Because this understanding assumes a natural link between descriptions and the events so described it also assumes a non-linguistic sense of the world as the final arbiter of the in/accuracy of descriptions. For DP, SSK and MCA, however, there can be no socially meaningful sense of the non-linguistic without the founding, constitutive force of language. Although language might not be all there is in the world, it is, nevertheless, all there is in the world that allows for the world to become accountable and knowable to ourselves and others. And once you reject—as these approaches reject—the possibility of some non-linguistic arbiter of accuracy, it follows that all descriptions (whether those we decide to treat as accurate or those we do not) have to be understood as the products of particular, locally specific contexts. The issue is no longer whether mediated texts transmit in/accurate in-formation, but how they act as "vehicles for action", where such actions might include defending someone, accusing someone, confessing to something, or any number of other things besides. It is here that we see how an ethnomethodological approach to language opens the possibility for a mediated stylistics; that is, for analytical tools traditionally associated with stylistics to be adopted for use within media studies. A journalist writing a news article about 'real events' and a novelist constructing a believably-real-yet-imaginary-world may well be working with different materials, but they are both engaged in essentially the same kind of literary task: building descriptive vehicles with the potential to pull off a certain set of contextually specific actions such as detailing, characterizing, informing, confessing, defending, accusing, and so on, in what constitutes an infinitely extendable list of other such social actions.

“Ours in writing”: Reclaiming access to Lakota texts at Standing Rock, SOAS University of London
This seminar titled "“Ours in writing”: Reclaiming access to Lakota texts at Standing Rock" was given by Elliot Bannister (Standing Rock Sioux Tribe) on 3 October 2017 at the Department of Linguistics, School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics, SOAS University of London. You can find out more about this event at https://goo.gl/739Ru6 and more about the Department of Linguistics, School of Languages, Cultures and Linguistics at https://www.soas.ac.uk/linguistics/ The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is home to a flourishing movement to protect and revitalize Lakota, a language it shares with several other sovereign nations. Current efforts include documentation projects with fluent Elders, a total immersion school, language and culture instruction in grade schools, and year-round training for language teachers. Lakota has been written in various forms for centuries and community attitudes towards writing the language are nuanced but generally positive. Major contributors to written Lakota literature include George Bushotter, George Sword and Thomas Tyon, who produced thousands of pages of text around the turn of the twentieth century; Ella Deloria, a Native anthropologist, who transcribed hundreds of narratives and traditional stories in the mid twentieth century; and the Lakota Country Times, which in recent decades has carried regular articles and essays by dozens of fluent speakers. As our fluent Elders gradually journey onwards, these texts are becoming an increasingly vital trove of cultural knowledge and authentic language. However, most remain unpublished, and often the original manuscripts sit in museums, libraries and private collections thousands of miles away from Lakota Country. This seminar gives an insight into the ongoing campaign to repatriate the texts to the community, build them into college curriculum, and adapt them for radio, stage, and animation. About the speaker Elliot Bannister is the Language Specialist for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. Elliot graduated in 2014 from SOAS, University of London with a degree in Arabic and Persian, and now lives in Fort Yates, North Dakota, the world’s number one destination for cloud-gazing.
LangDev2015: Srikant Sarangi | Plenary - Mind the Gap
Mind the Gap: ‘Communicative Vulnerability’ and the Mediation of Linguistic/ Cultural Diversity in Healthcare Delivery The landscape of multilingualism/multiculturalism in the developed and developing countries is a consequence of the ever-increasing migration flows, globally and locally. A unique institutional/ professional site of interest is the complexly mediated healthcare delivery system characterised by the linguistic and cultural diversities of not only patients and their families but also of healthcare professionals. Such diversities, however, are not reciprocated by adequate communicative resources within the healthcare sector, thus resulting in instances of ‘communicative vulnerability’ At a general level, the gap between the needs/expectations of the patient populations and the affordances in terms of financial and human resources of healthcare institutions and professionals is widening at a faster rate over the years. More commonly understood as the prevalence of ‘health inequalities,’ such an upward looking trajectory is easily noticeable across the divide of developed and developing countries. Among other socio-economic determinants, poor levels of health literacy (constitutive of linguistic and communicative competencies) are often argued to be a contributing factor, with the consequences of increased adverse events in terms of patient safety, morbidity and even mortality. In countries like India, as in many other developing countries, linguistic and cultural diversities are taken as ‘facts of life’ and, by extension, there is a widespread assumption that such diversities do not necessarily impede routine healthcare practice. However, in the developing world there is very little applied linguistic and communication/discourse- oriented research addressing ‘the everyday facts of life and death,’ especially in the context of mediated healthcare encounters. In acknowledging the current knowledge gap, in this presentation I set out an agenda for future research on the focal theme of healthcare delivery in multicultural/multilingual societies. As part of this agenda-setting exercise, I characterise the above scenario as a case of displacement-cum-engagement and draw particular attention to the interplay of linguistic advantages and communicative vulnerabilities in differentially mediated healthcare delivery in multicultural societies. Focusing on the delivery and receipt of healthcare, I draw upon my recent and ongoing work cross-cutting the developed and the developing worlds to reassess the nature of the contribution applied linguists and communication/discourse researchers can make to reduce the identified gaps in knowledge-cum-practice in the domain of global and just healthcare.

Evolution of Language | Curious Questions with Answers | Educational Videos by Mocomi Kids
https://mocomi.com/ presents: Evolution of Language Language developed as the human species evolved. Development of language sets us apart from our closest relatives, the chimpanzees. No other natural communication system is like human language. Human language can express thoughts, convey information, ask questions and give orders. In contrast, animal can only communicate immediate issues such as food, danger, threat, or reconciliation. So how did language begin? Did a bunch of cavemen hold a conference and decide to make up language? Obviously not. One theory is that hominids (our human ancestors) started by grunting, hooting and crying out, and this gradually developed into the language we use today. But apes could grunt and hoot as well. Why did their grunting not evolve into a ‘language’? Because 6 million years ago the hominid and chimpanzee lines diverged. The size of the hominid brain increased and developed over time, while chimpanzee brain remained the same. Another theory is that language began as sign language and then switched to the vocal modality Did languages develop simultaneously all over the world? Some have argued that language evolved independently in different parts of the world. While a recent study shows that all languages in the world evolved from one prehistoric language first spoken in Africa tens of thousands of years ago. And it spread across the world with the migration of our ancestors when they left Africa 70,000 years ago. Do languages stay the same over the generations? Languages change as they are handed down from generation to generation due to change in culture and influence of other languages. That is why the English spoken in the Elizabethan Era is way different from the English we speak today. The subject of language and its evolution is still undergoing lively investigation among linguists, psychologists, and biologists.

Tracing the nations back to Babel (Creation Magazine LIVE! 3-12)
Extra-Biblical historical records testify to the ancient nations beginning as family units from Noah's descendants. This powerfully supports the Bible's history, especially the reality of the world's population 'restarting' after the Flood of Noah. The Creation Magazine LIVE! TV program is a ministry of Creation Ministries International. With offices in seven countries and more PhD scientists than any Christian organization this program features cutting edge science that supports the Bible delivered in a non-technical, visually-rich, discussion-based format.

Morphology (linguistics) | Wikipedia audio article
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Morphology (linguistics) Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= In linguistics, morphology () is the study of words, how they are formed, and their relationship to other words in the same language. It analyzes the structure of words and parts of words, such as stems, root words, prefixes, and suffixes. Morphology also looks at parts of speech, intonation and stress, and the ways context can change a word's pronunciation and meaning. Morphology differs from morphological typology, which is the classification of languages based on their use of words, and lexicology, which is the study of words and how they make up a language's vocabulary.While words, along with clitics, are generally accepted as being the smallest units of syntax, in most languages, if not all, many words can be related to other words by rules that collectively describe the grammar for that language. For example, English speakers recognize that the words dog and dogs are closely related, differentiated only by the plurality morpheme "-s", only found bound to noun phrases. Speakers of English, a fusional language, recognize these relations from their innate knowledge of English's rules of word formation. They infer intuitively that dog is to dogs as cat is to cats; and, in similar fashion, dog is to dog catcher as dish is to dishwasher. By contrast, Classical Chinese has very little morphology, using almost exclusively unbound morphemes ("free" morphemes) and depending on word order to convey meaning. (Most words in modern Standard Chinese ["Mandarin"], however, are compounds and most roots are bound.) These are understood as grammars that represent the morphology of the language. The rules understood by a speaker reflect specific patterns or regularities in the way words are formed from smaller units in the language they are using, and how those smaller units interact in speech. In this way, morphology is the branch of linguistics that studies patterns of word formation within and across languages and attempts to formulate rules that model the knowledge of the speakers of those languages. Phonological and orthographic modifications between a base word and its origin may be partial to literacy skills. Studies have indicated that the presence of modification in phonology and orthography makes morphologically complex words harder to understand and that the absence of modification between a base word and its origin makes morphologically complex words easier to understand. Morphologically complex words are easier to comprehend when they include a base word.Polysynthetic languages, such as Chukchi, have words composed of many morphemes. The Chukchi word "təmeyŋəlevtpəγtərkən", for example, meaning "I have a fierce headache", is composed of eight morphemes t-ə-meyŋ-ə-levt-pəγt-ə-rkən that may be glossed. The morphology of such languages allows for each consonant and vowel to be understood as morphemes, while the grammar of the language indicates the usage and understanding of each morpheme. The discipline that deals specifically with the sound changes occurring within morphemes is morphophonology.

Because PIE was not written, linguists must rely on the evidence of its earliest attested descendants, such as Hittite, Sanskrit, Ancient Greek, and Latin, to reconstruct its phonology. The reconstruction of abstract units of PIE phonological systems (i.e. segments, or phonemes in traditional phonology) is mostly uncontroversial, although areas of dispute remain. Their phonetic interpretation is harder to establish; this pertains especially to the vowels, the so-called laryngeals, and the voiced stops.

Linguistic Sloppiness (made with Spreaker)
Source: https://www.spreaker.com/user/10559666/linguistic-sloppiness Linguistic Sloppiness As my regular readers will know, I am fascinated by languages, so I have noticed a strange shift in the BBC's reporting. When I was a student of the USSR and Russian in the seventies, we talked about THE Ukraine, THE Caucasus et cetera. Now, as a Russian language speaker, I know that Russian does not have articles (a, an the), so when I heard them dropped in reference to the recent troubles there, it was a surprise more than a shock. However, last night, I heard a UK BBC reporter refer to THE United Kingdom as 'United Kingdom'. Is this a new trend or just sloppiness? To my mind, WE, in English, have articles, if you want to be taken seriously, bloody well use them, plonkers! ** Update: I just heard a reporter referring to 'Muslim Brotherhood' not 'THE Muslim Brotherhood', yet he used articles correctly elsewhere in his report. It's catching on! ** ∞ On a different subject, I want to promote the advertising power of this website, I cannot believe that so few people have picked up on it. Anyway, 90% of readers are American, that means 70k page views a month, and the next best are UK at 17,788 and France at 17,648 per month. Today, the sixteenth, Google has sniffed around 3,846 times and the average for a human visitor has been 359 secs a visit, which is high. It translates to 22.34 pages a visit. Handsome! ∞ I was just talking to 'my daughter', sorry, I still don't know what to call her even after ten years, although I've heard she calls me 'Dad' generally, but Owen to my face. We will iron that one out tomorrow. Anyway, I told her that her English was worse than it had ever been even after three years in university. She said that the reason was that she was scared of making mistakes and people laughing at her now that she was older. This is the root cause of intelligent Thais not getting on - it's a national tragedy! They are scared that people will laugh at them. It reveals a high level of national insecurity. ∞ 'Asian Shorts' is now 100% full and I have pencilled in 'Paranormal Shorts' for next month, so if you have a story for it, send it as soon as you like, or start writing one if you haven't. Get a free copy of the Asian Shorts audiobook here: Asian Shorts free audiobook All the best, Owen PS: if you like linguistics, listen to this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05tl3jm Podcast: Linguistic Sloppiness
