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.

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

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 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.

Noam Chomsky 2017 | Talks at Google
For the past forty years Noam Chomsky's writings on politics and language have established him as a preeminent public intellectual and as one of the most original and wide-ranging political and social critics of our time. Among the seminal figures in linguistic theory over the past century, since the 1960s Chomsky has also secured a place as perhaps the leading dissident voice in the United States. In this talk from Google Cambridge in May of 2017 Professor Chomsky discusses wide ranging topics from the development of his personal political views to the control of information and media with Googler Hasan Khalil.

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

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.

Evolution of Language | Mocomi Kids
http://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.

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

The surprising pattern behind color names around the world
Why so many languages invented words for colors in the same order. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO In 1969, two Berkeley researchers, Paul Kay and Brent Berlin, published a book on a pretty groundbreaking idea: that every culture in history, when they developed their languages, invented words for colors in the exact same order. They claimed to know this based off of a simple color identification test, where 20 respondents identified 330 colored chips by name. If a language had six words, they were always black, white, red, green, yellow, and blue. If it had four terms, they were always black, white, red, and then either green or yellow. If it had only three, they were always black, white, and red , and so on. The theory was revolutionary — and it shaped our understanding of how color terminologies emerge.

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. Srikant Sarangi says ‘I am currently Professor in Humanities and Medicine and Director of the Danish Institute of Humanities and Medicine (DIHM) at Aalborg University, Denmark. I am Honorary Professor at Cardiff University and Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences, UK.

"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.

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.

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.

Greek Grammar Beyond Basics Video Lectures - The Article, Part 1, Lecture 2 by Daniel B. Wallace
Buy the video lectures: Amazon http://amzn.to/2knC7F4 CBD http://bit.ly/2jYvzfH Selected from Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics Video Lectures, this video presents all material from the lecture, The Article, Part 1, Lecture 2 by Daniel B. Wallace. Check out an online course for independent learners based on Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics Video Lectures and the corresponding textbook, http://bit.ly/2jNqnZG About Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics Video Lectures: For seminary students, pastors, and others seeking to learn biblical Greek, the goal of studying Greek grammar is accurate exegesis of biblical texts. Sound exegesis requires that a student consider grammar within a larger framework including context, lexeme, and other linguistic features. While the trend of some grammarians has been to take a purely grammatical approach to language learning, Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics Video Lectures, together with its accompanying textbooks, integrates the technical requirements for proper Greek interpretation with the actual interests and needs of Bible students. Systematically linking syntax and exegesis of the New Testament for second-year Greek students, professor and textual critic Daniel B. Wallace explores numerous syntactical categories, some of which are not covered in other Greek studies. These video lectures and accompanying textbooks equip students with the skills they need to do exegesis of biblical texts in a way that is faithful to their intended meaning. A companion to the widely used textbooks Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics and The Basics of New Testament Syntax, by Daniel B. Wallace, the lectures feature the author teaching through the main sections in the textbooks. Designed with the student in mind, each lecture is approximately 30 to 45 minutes in length. Useful for traditional students, students in distance and online courses, and independent learners alike, these lectures introduce second-year Greek students to syntax and exegesis of the Greek New Testament.

Title: Semantic information infrastructures and their value to data intensive services Abstract: Data is world’s greatest natural resource. Data is the world’s great new natural resource. What steam power was to the 18th century, electromagnetism to the 19th and fossil fuels to the 20th… data will be to the 21st.” Ginni Rometty, President and Chief Executive Officer of IBM. Dealing with heterogeneous data sources and extracting value from them is one of the most important challenges in recent years. From business information delivery, through human resources management, life sciences and Industry 4.0 to earth observation to be able to consume data it is necessary to provide with information infrastructures that allow reliable collection, storage, analytics and visualization of the data – e.g. the realization of the full cycle of the so called data value chain. Semantic technologies start playing crucial role in these endeavours. The present talk will discuss the nature of semantic information infrastructures, their advantages and drawbacks, and will show the trend of their adoption by big industrial companies along with examples of applications based on semantic information infrastructures produced by Mozaika.

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. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Comparative Literature -- Its Current Situation and Theoretical Perplexities
Professor Saussy has a range of scholarly interests, including Chinese poetry, literature, aesthetics and culture. His published articles explore a wide variety of topics such as Chinese musicology, the history of the idea of oral literature, Haitian literature, health care for the poor and contemporary art. In his first book, The Problem of a Chinese Aesthetic, he applied a new model of comparative literature. In his book, Great Walls of Discourse and Other Adventures in Cultural China, he examines the ways that assumptions and consensus within a discipline affect collective thinking about the object of study. We talk with Professor Saussy about comparative literature -- its current situation and theoretical perplexities.

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. Sponsored by the WWU Linguistics Club.
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.

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.

Dmitry Orlov: Trump, Russia and the Economy
Russian-American author Dmitry Orlov discusses the new Trump presidency and what it may mean for the next stage of the Global Financial Crisis and the New Cold War. He also discusses his concerns regarding the threat of GMOs and Russia's recent prohibition on genetically engineered crops, which could lead to a global ban. Dmitry Orlov Website https://cluborlov.blogspot.com About Dmitry Orlov Dmitry Orlov is a Russian-American engineer and a writer on subjects related to "potential economic, ecological and political decline and collapse in the United States," something he has called “permanent crisis”. Orlov believes collapse will be the result of huge military budgets, government deficits, an unresponsive political system and declining oil production. Orlov was born in Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg) and moved to the United States at the age of 12. He has a BS in Computer Engineering and an MA in Applied Linguistics. He was an eyewitness to the collapse of the Soviet Union over several extended visits to his Russian homeland between the late 1980s and mid-1990s. In 2005 and 2006 Orlov wrote a number of articles comparing the collapse-preparedness of the U.S. and the Soviet Union published on small Peak Oil related sites. Orlov’s article "Closing the 'Collapse Gap': the USSR was better prepared for collapse than the US" was very popular at EnergyBulletin.Net. Orlov’s book Reinventing Collapse:The Soviet Example and American Prospects, published in 2008, further details his views. Discussing the book in 2009, in a piece in The New Yorker, Ben McGrath wrote that Orlov describes "superpower collapse soup" common to both the U.S. and the Soviet Union: “a severe shortfall in the production of crude oil, a worsening foreign-trade deficit, an oversized military budget, and crippling foreign debt.” Orlov told interviewer McGrath that in recent months financial professionals had begun to make up more of his audience, joining "back-to-the-land types," "peak oilers," and those sometimes derisively called “doomers”. In his review of the book, commentator Thom Hartmann writes that Orlov holds that the Soviet Union hit a “soft crash” because of centralized planning in: housing, agriculture, and transportation left an infrastructure private citizens could co-opt so that no one had to pay rent or go homeless and people showed up for work, even when they were not paid. He writes that Orlov believes the U.S. will have a hard crash, more like Germany’s Weimar Republic of the 1920s.

Welcome to Glotters
Hi! I am Sissi. I am a translator, language teacher and a PhD candidate in Byzantine studies and I graduated in Turkology. I study languages in general and my special field is Turkic linguistics. Why did I start? As a student, I often had difficulty understanding what my teachers were explaining. And it may surprise you, but I hated languages and linguistics in school! But somehow I happened to become a language teacher after university. I didn’t want to bore my students and disappoint them or make them hate languages. That’s why I decided to create funny materials for them. I started telling them interesting, funny stories. In this way, I created my method of teaching. I apply the same method to explain difficult linguistic definitions and concepts with the aim of making the linguistics available and easily comprehensive to everyone. I tell colorful stories which contain fantastic elements. My stories are remarkable and that’s why they are easy to remember. Beyond the definitions, I deal with current linguistic issues and I review interesting articles and books that help people to understand certain topics more deeply. How did I start? Well, I had to prepare a short presentation of a linguistic definition for a course in the university (it was the definition of loanword). I had only 3 minutes to explain what loanword means in a way that would be clear to everyone. This is how the idea was born. After some time, I made my very first video of the same definition. After that the second came, the third, the fourth and so on. My belief. My goal: I love creating videos about linguistic topics because linguistics is my passion. I love it because I love linguistics and I love creativity. I believe what I am doing, has a particular value. I believe that somebody will appreciate it. I believe that I can contribute to a better understanding of linguistic topics and issues with my videos.
