06 tips to learn and remember a new English Vocabulary daily -- Free English Lessons The most important thing about learning vocabulary is to use new words and just reading a list of new words would not help. It is essential to remember the new word learnt so here are some tips that will help you to do so. 1) Use the new word in a sentence: After you have read the word and understood its meaning, use the new word in your own sentence. Try to create sentences in context with your daily life. 2) Look for grammatical Variations: Look for various grammatical forms of the new word that u learns. For example the word entice is a verb where as the adjective form is enticing and the adverb is enticingly. Enticed would be the past and past participle of the word entice. Once you have the different grammatical forms you would end up learning many words just with one word. 3) Learn Associations and Connections: Try to associate and connect the word more with the help of the search engines like Google. Look for its synonyms and antonyms. Again this will help you to learn more words connected to the original word you have learnt. 4) Always carry a notepad with you: Write the word, its meaning and a sentence in a small notepad or your smart phone that you can carry it around. Go though these words in your spare time. This will help you to remember it well. 5) Make Flash Cards: Make little flash cards with each new word on one side and the meaning on the other. Put them on the ground and if the meaning is face up try to think of the word or vice versa. 6) Learn the word again before you forget: Don't just learn or practice a word a day and then forget about it. Its important to remember it. Therefore to remember it reuse the word, keep practicing it till it sticks in your long term memory. These six tips would help you to learn and remember new words and therefore increase your vocabulary which eventually would excel your communication skills.

What is LINGUISTIC LANDSCAPE? What does LINGUISTIC LANDSCAPE mean? LINGUISTIC LANDSCAPE meaning

What is LINGUISTIC LANDSCAPE? What does LINGUISTIC LANDSCAPE mean? LINGUISTIC LANDSCAPE meaning - LINGUISTIC LANDSCAPE definition - LINGUISTIC LANDSCAPE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Linguistic landscape is the "visibility and salience of languages on public and commercial signs in a given territory or region" (Landry and Bourhis 1997:23). Linguistic landscape has been described as being "somewhere at the junction of sociolinguistics, sociology, social psychology, geography, and media studies". It is a concept used in sociolinguistics as scholars study how languages are visually used in multilingual societies. For example, some public signs in Jerusalem are in Hebrew, English, and Arabic (Spolsky and Cooper 1991, Ben-Rafael, Shohamy, Amara, and Trumper-Hecht 2006). Studies of the linguistic landscape have been published from research done around the world. The field of study is relatively recent; "the linguistic landscapes paradigm has evolved rapidly and while it has a number of key names associated with it, it currently has no clear orthodoxy or theoretical core" (Sebba 2010:73). A special issue of the International Journal of Multilingualism (3.1 in 2006) was devoted to the subject. Also, the journal World Englishes published a themed issue of five papers as a "Symposium on World Englishes and Linguistic Landscapes: Five Perspectives" (2012, vol. 31.1). Similarly, an entire issue of the International Journal of the Sociology of Language (228 in 2014) was devoted to the subject, including looking at signs that show influences from one language on another language. In 2015 an academic journal devoted to this topic was launched, titled Linguistic Landscape: An International Journal, from John Benjamins. There is also a series of academic conferences on the study of linguistic landscape. A comprehensive, searchable Linguistic Landscape Bibliography is available. A 2016 special issue of Manusya (22, 2016) begins with a history and summary of the field. Because "the methodologies employed in the collection and categorisation of written signs is still controversial", basic research questions are still being discussed, such as: "do small, hand-made signs count as much as large, commercially made signs?". The original technical scope of "linguistic landscape" involved plural languages, and almost all writers use it in that sense, but Papen has applied the term to the way public writing is used in a monolingual way in a German city and Heyd has applied the term to the ways that English is written, and people's reactions to these ways. The languages used in public signs indicate what languages are locally relevant, or give evidence of what languages are becoming locally relevant (Kasanga 2012). In many multilingual countries, multilingual signs and packaging are taken for granted, especially as merchants try to attract as many customers as possible or people realize that they serve a multilingual community. In other places, it is a matter of law, as in Quebec, where signs cannot be in English only, but must include French (Bill 101, Charte de la langue française). In Texas, some signs are required to be in English and Spanish, such as warning signs about consuming alcohol while pregnant. In some cases, the signs themselves are multilingual signs, reflecting an expected multilingual readership. In other cases, there are monolingual signs in different languages, written in relevant languages found within a multilingual community. Backhaus even points out that some signs are not meant to be understood so much as to appeal to readers via a more prestigious language (2007:58).....

Crime, Language & Forensics Decoded with Jim Fitzgerald & Dr. Natalie Schilling
 
39:27
Explore how language is used in forensic investigations from the anthrax mailings, to voice line-ups, and the investigation of the murder of Daniel Pearl, with Dr. Natalie Schilling and James Fitzgerald. We break down the rape case against Eric Frimpong, and examine how witnesses can misinterpret language to shocking ends, as well as shed light on the misunderstood science of linguistics and the very real impact that it has on crime investigation, in this Crime Time episode hosted by Allison Hope Weiner. GUEST BIO: Dr. Natalie Schilling is an internationally-renowned linguist and an Associate Professor of Linguistics at Georgetown University. She is recognized for her research on language variation across cultural groups and is especially well-known for her work on individual language style and stylistic variation. She is an expert on American English dialect variation, has extensive knowledge of variation in World Englishes, and also conducts research on variation in Spanish. Dr. Schilling is currently conducting research on authorial attribution and author profiling. She teaches Forensic Linguistics and Sociolinguistics (Language and Society) at Georgetown University and was a regular instructor in the FBI’s Forensic Linguistic Workshop for Law Enforcement Practitioners, designed and led by AGI Practitioner James R. Fitzgerald. Dr. Schilling also presents on and teaches Forensic Linguistics in various venues in Spain. She has given more than 100 presentations at U.S. and international academic conferences, universities, and training workshops, and has authored numerous academic articles and book chapters. She is co-author of a definitive textbook, American English, and co-editor of the authoritative Handbook of Language Variation and Change. James R. Fitzgerald was the Program Manager of Threat Assessment/Forensic Linguistics at the Behavioral Analysis Unit 1 of the FBI. Fitzgerald knew little about profiling or linguistics when he joined the FBI in 1987. But, while assigned to the field office in New York City, he worked cases involving stalking or threatening letters sent to Jane Pauley, Bryant Gumbel, Don Imus, Donald Trump, and Rush Limbaugh, among others. In 1995, Fitzgerald became a profiler at the FBI Academy at Quantico, Va. As part of Fitzgerald’s profiler training, he learned about analyzing communications. He later obtained a Master’s degree in linguistics from Georgetown University. (This was his second MS. His first was in Organizational Psychology at Villanova University.) As he has at his present company, The Academy Group, Fitzgerald created a linguistic-oriented database of threatening and/or suspicious letters, similar to one the Secret Service maintains.Fitzgerald now works for the Academy Group in Manassas, Va., which provides profiling services for private industry as well as a university instructor, author, and technical advisor for television programs (Criminal Minds) involving the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Australia Group- Academic Summary Jocular Mockery
 
05:29
In the article Mock impoliteness, jocular mockery and jocular abuse in Australian and British English (Haugh & Bousfield, 2012), the authors begin by establishing some definitions. While on the surface, social interactions can be understood as either polite, impolite, or neutral, they can be pragmatically understood on a spectrum. This spectrum includes mock impoliteness, non-politeness, jocular mockery, and jocular abuse, as well as understandings that are completely consistent with their surface meanings. Mock impoliteness can be defined as “the exploitation of jocular/humorous insults or ‘banter’ to display or create solidarity and refer to instances where a speaker says something which is obviously ‘‘untrue’’ and ‘‘impolite’’ in order to convey by implicature something which is true” (Leech, 1983). In other words, mock impoliteness has the curious ability of hurting the esteem of a group member, while somehow improving group unity and the member’s status within the community. This is not to be confuse with ironic politeness, as the “mock” impoliteness is a still a force that can cause discomfort for the subject and imply that he is “taking himself too seriously”, a grievous social more in Australia and Northwest England. Jocular mockery and jocular abuse are both subcategories of mock impoliteness. Jocular mockery involves insulting an activity or action of a group member, while jocular abuse involves directly attacking an individual’s character. This article includes several examples of both jocular abuse and jocular mockery. In one example reenacted in the video, two Australian housemates are talking about a recent experience one of them had with a flirtatious bartender. The storyteller explains how the bartender was flirting instead of working hard. He adds unnecessary emphasis by claiming it’s “poor work ethic”. His friend then says that he should “threaten his life”. This is impolite, as it implies that the narrator is a murderous person without morals. However, both understand that he would never kill someone, and they laugh it off as jocular mockery. This has strengthened their relationship and reminded the storyteller that he needs to “not take himself too seriously”. While the subjects were different between the two cultures did differ, the overall goal of non-impoliteness was the same. It reinforced the relationship, and it caused a slight amount of pain for the person being “mocked”, bringing him back into line with acceptable social standards. The paper mentioned that this occurs in the United States as well, and indeed, we as a group could think of several different instances in which we’ve seen this non-impoliteness in our own lives. We therefore agree with this paper in its broad claim, that jocular mockery is an important and widespread part of Anglocentric culture. It’s not uncommon for Americans to joke and tease each other in such a way that maintains the social order. However, the paper had a masculine focus. While this does seem to be a more common phenomenon in men, it would hardly be a waste of time to collect data from women as well. Our culture is currently undergoing a major redefinition of gender and what it means to be “masculine” or “feminine”. It’s possible that non-impoliteness may be a primarily masculine thing, but that it’s diffusing into popular use among both genders. It could say a lot about how American culture is currently changing. It’s also interesting that the paper focused on Australia and Northwest England. As we’ve already mentioned, it seems like this phenomenon is much more widespread than the paper’s scope. It would be an interesting analysis to expand the focus to include other inner circle Englishes. In fact, it would be very interesting to research whether or not non-impoliteness is also present in outer and expanding circle Englishes, perhaps including some analyses of whether use goes up or down between English and the native language. What we might be observing here may actually be common to all speakers of English worldwide, and could provide some interesting discoveries in the diffusion of English pragmatics along with the language.

Literacy Crisis, Then and Now /  Part1
 
30:17
Literacy Crises, Then and Now: The Multimodal, Multilingual Past, Present, and Future of English Studies Working to historicize contemporary conversations about multimodality and globalization in English studies, Palmeri revisits past moments in the field (such as the turn of the 70s) when English scholars and teachers confronted profound shifts in communication technologies and college student demographics. On the one hand, a look back at previous "literacy crises" can remind us to be wary of how hyperbolic narratives of technological and cultural change can be employed to reinforce oppressive power structures and to sediment narrowly alphabetic and Eurocentric epistemologies. On the other hand, a look back at past times of "crisis" can also uncover transformative moments of possibility—moments when English scholars and teachers embraced and began to enact a radically multimodal, multilingual vision of the field. By reclaiming and remixing our field's past engagements with multimodal and linguistic diversity, Palmeri ultimately seeks to outline a capacious, activist vision for the Department of Englishes in the twenty-first century. Jason Palmeri is Assistant Professor of English and affiliate faculty in Interactive Media Studies at Miami University, where he also serves as the Director of the Composition Program and Co-Coordinator of Digital Writing Collaborative. Palmeri is author of Remixing Composition: A History of Multimodal Writing Pedagogy (SIUP 2012) as well as numerous articles on digital pedagogy in journals such as Computers and Composition and Technical Communication Quarterly.

International English
 
20:38
International English is the concept of the English language as a global means of communication in numerous dialects, and also the movement towards an international standard for the language. It is also referred to as Global English, World English, Common English, Continental English, General English, Engas, or Globish. Sometimes, these terms refer simply to the array of varieties of English spoken throughout the world. Sometimes, "international English" and the related terms above refer to a desired standardisation, i.e. Standard English; however, there is no consensus on the path to this goal. There have been many proposals for making International English more accessible to people from different nationalities. Basic English is an example, but it failed to make progress. More recently, there have been proposals for English as a lingua franca. It has also been argued that International English is held back by its traditional spelling. There has been slow progress in adopting alternate spellings. This video is targeted to blind users. Attribution: Article text available under CC-BY-SA Creative Commons image source in video

English as a lingua franca
 
25:41
English as a lingua franca is the use of the English language as a Koiné language, "a common means of communication for speakers of different first languages". ELF is also "defined functionally by its use in intercultural communication rather than formally by its reference to native-speaker norms" whereas English as a foreign language aims at meeting native speaker norms and gives prominence to native speaker cultural aspects. While lingua francas have been used for centuries, what makes ELF a novel phenomenon is the extent to which it is used – both functionally and geographically. A typical ELF conversation might involve an Italian and a Dane chatting at a coffee break of an international conference held in Brussels, a Spanish tourist asking a local for the way in Berlin, or a Punjabi Indian negotiating with a Tamil Indian salesperson at Chennai.

Indianized kingdom | Wikipedia audio article
 
57:32
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Indianized kingdom 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 In case you don't find one that you were looking for, put a comment. This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= The term Greater India is most commonly used to encompass the historical and geographic extent of all political entities of the Indian subcontinent, and the regions which are culturally linked to India or received significant Indian cultural influence. These countries have to varying degrees been transformed by the acceptance and induction of cultural and institutional elements of India. Since around 500 BCE, Asia's expanding land and maritime trade had resulted in prolonged socio-economic and cultural stimulation and diffusion of Hindu and Buddhist beliefs into the region's cosmology, in particular in Southeast Asia and Sri Lanka. In Central Asia, transmission of ideas were predominantly of a religious nature.By the early centuries of the common era most of the principalities of Southeast Asia had effectively absorbed defining aspects of Hindu culture, religion and administration. The notion of divine god-kingship was introduced by the concept of Harihara, Sanskrit and other Indian epigraphic systems were declared official, like those of the south Indian Pallava dynasty and Chalukya dynasty. These Indianized Kingdoms, a term coined by George Cœdès in his work Histoire ancienne des états hindouisés d'Extrême-Orient, were characterized by surprising resilience, political integrity and administrative stability.To the north, Indian religious ideas were accepted into the cosmology of Himalayan peoples, most profoundly in Tibet and Bhutan. Buddhist monasticism extended into Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and other parts of Central Asia, and Buddhist texts and ideas were readily accepted in China and Japan in the east. To the west, Indian culture converged with Greater Persia via the Hindukush and the Pamir Mountains.

Code-mixing
 
09:54
Code-mixing refers to the mixing of two or more languages or language varieties in speech. Some scholars use the terms "code-mixing" and "code-switching" interchangeably, especially in studies of syntax, morphology, and other formal aspects of language. Others assume more specific definitions of code-mixing, but these specific definitions may be different in different subfields of linguistics, education theory, communications etc. This video is targeted to blind users.

Tonal language | Wikipedia audio article

This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= Tone is the use of pitch in language to distinguish lexical or grammatical meaning – that is, to distinguish or to inflect words. All verbal languages use pitch to express emotional and other paralinguistic information and to convey emphasis, contrast, and other such features in what is called intonation, but not all languages use tones to distinguish words or their inflections, analogously to consonants and vowels. Languages that do have this feature are called tonal languages; the distinctive tone patterns of such a language are sometimes called tonemes, by analogy with phoneme. Tonal languages are common in East and Southeast Asia, the Pacific, Africa, and the Americas; as many as seventy percent of world languages may be tonal.In many tonal African languages, such as most Bantu languages, tones are distinguished by their pitch level relative to each other, known as a register tone system. In multisyllable words, a single tone may be carried by the entire word rather than a different tone on each syllable. Often, grammatical information, such as past versus present, "I" versus "you", or positive versus negative, is conveyed solely by tone. In the most widely spoken tonal language, Mandarin Chinese, tones are distinguished by their distinctive shape, known as contour, with each tone having a different internal pattern of rising and falling pitch. Many words, especially monosyllabic ones, are differentiated solely by tone. In a multisyllabic word, each syllable often carries its own tone. Unlike in Bantu systems, tone plays little role in the grammar of modern standard Chinese, though the tones descend from features in Old Chinese that had morphological significance (such as changing a verb to a noun or vice versa). Contour systems are typical of languages of the Mainland Southeast Asia linguistic area, including Kra–Dai, Vietic and Sino-Tibetan languages. The Afroasiatic, Khoisan, Niger-Congo and Nilo-Saharan languages spoken in Africa are dominated by register systems. Some languages combine both systems, such as Cantonese, which produces three varieties of contour tone at three different pitch levels, and the Omotic (Afroasiatic) language Bench, which employs five level tones and one or two rising tones across levels.Many languages use tone in a more limited way. In Japanese, fewer than half of the words have a drop in pitch; words contrast according to which syllable this drop follows. Such minimal systems are sometimes called pitch accent since they are reminiscent of stress accent languages, which typically allow one principal stressed syllable per word. However, there is debate over the definition of pitch accent and whether a coherent definition is even possible.

4-10 Engaging International Students through CLAC
 
49:55
CAS Event Tuesday, April 10, 2018; 5 p.m. HUMN 1B80, CU Boulder The increase in international student enrollments on U.S. campuses during the last decade challenges faculty, staff and administrators to think about strategies for developing welcoming environments for this diverse population. A logical place to begin thinking about international student well-being and academic success is to consider ways faculty can leverage students' language and cultural knowledge to support their academic goals and increase a sense of belonging and contribution in the classroom. After a brief overview of CLAC's philosophical approach to learning, Gonzalez will provide an in-depth case study of international students' experiences in Binghamton University's CLAC program, which she directed for more than 15 years. Currently she is chair of the CLAC Consortium, and also Director of the University of Rochester ONCAMPUS Center.
