Aspects of Arbitration Discourse: an Insight into China’s Arbitration Law
- Gotti, Maurizio
The formulation of legal norms is greatly conditioned not only by different juridical systems and drafting traditions, but also by specific linguistic features and socio-cultural aspects. The paper investigates this issue by taking into consideration provisions concerning commercial arbitration in an Asian country. The text selected for our analysis is The People’s Republic of China Arbitration Law 1994 (PRCAL, for short). This law can be considered a highly important step in the development of Chinese legislation in this field as it has had a great impact on international arbitration carried out by Chinese companies.

How Common is the Common Law? Some Differences and Similarities in British and American Superior Court Decisions
- Del-Bove, Marion Charret; Francoz-Terminal, Laurence
American law and English law belong to the same legal tradition, the common law, characterized by a case-law system based on judicial decisions and the rule of precedent. There are indeed common features between the American and the English common law systems. There is a common language with close expressions, but also similar concepts, principles and procedures. But how common are in fact the American and British legal systems? This paper aims at finding some possible answers through a legal and linguistic analysis of some US and UK superior court decisions.
The Fallacy of Informed Consent: Linguistic Markers of Assent and Contractual Design in Some E-User Agreements
- Brunon-Ernst, Anne
Orthodox contract law theory assumes that parties agree to the terms of a contract before entering into an agreement. However, recent factual evidence points towards the fact that consumers do not systematically read, and thus become informed of, the terms of a contract. Academics are asking for mandatory frameworks to ensure that informed consent is indeed sought and given by parties to a contract. The present study looks into the user agreements of four online companies that provide a marketplace for the sale of goods or free provision of services by other sellers and/or users (Ebay, Tripadvisor, YouTube and Amazon)....
Materialidad poética: arquitectura suiza en el entorno de los Grisones 1992-2004
- Alonso de los Ríos, Silvia
El entorno alpino de los Grisones ha sido un laboratorio donde experimentar un método arquitectónico procedente de diversas fuentes durante los años 70 en la ETHZ. Este método ha producido durante las últimas tres décadas un discurso teórico propiamente suizo alemán. La tradición continúa siendo un valor cultural para la comunidad alpina de los Grisones, que apuesta por seguir relacionando la arquitectura con su historia y su paisaje. La especificidad de cada entorno suizo alemán es un hecho obvio pero, por encima de sus rasgos característicos, hay un denominador común que les da unidad en silencio: se trata de una...

The Basic Ideas of the Sinogram-Based Theory by Tongqiang Xu
- Hongyi SHEN
The Sinogram-based theory by Tongqiang Xu is the most prominent achievement of Chinese language studies in recent years. The theory emphasizes that the Chinese language studies must be based on the linguistic facts from Chinese instead of Indo-European languages. The sinograms are the basic structural units of Chinese, just as words are that of Indo-European languages. As the coding system of reality, Chinese adopts the mode of taking sinograms but not words as the basic units, and this is the ultimate reason for the fundamental difference between Chinese and Indo-European languages. The controversial theory is still non-mainstream because of the...

A Study of the Generation of English Jokes From Cognitive Metonymy
- Xiaoyu HE
English jokes improve human relations and enliven the communicative atmosphere in daily communication. How to generate English jokes has long been of interest to numerous researchers, such as philosophers, psychologists and linguists. In the linguistic field, the scholars at home and abroad have been discussing English jokes from angles of rhetoric, phonetics, semantics, pragmatics and cognitive linguistics. Few researchers study the generation of English jokes from cognitive linguistics. Therefore, this study implements a qualitative cognitive linguistic exploration into English jokes and proposes that the change of metonymy generates English jokes through the change of ICM (Idealized Cognitive Model). Then a...
A Corpus-Based Analysis of N-Grams in English Texts Written by Chinese Learners
- Zhiyuan LIN
Recent linguistic studies have shown that proper use of multi-word expressions, or n-grams, is quite essential in foreign language acquisition. By contrast of the different types of n-grams from native corpus and Chinese learners’ corpus, the present article is devoted to discussing distinctive features of n-grams use in English texts written by Chinese learners. Generally, Chinese learners have not developed a strong awareness of distinguishing written style from spoken style of English texts. Also they tend to produce various n-grams which reflect the Chinese social development. Besides, they usually overuse n-grams of “a personal pronoun + a modal or...
Interaction of Demonstratives With Nominal Spine in Haili Arabic
- Eisa Sneitan Alrasheedi
This research addresses the syntactic behaviour and distribution of demonstratives in Haili Arabic, less-investigated Arabic variety. It precisely looks at how demonstratives interact with other DP components. To this end, the recent advancements of the Minimalist Program (Chomsky 1995 and subsequent work) are adopted. Following the cross-linguistic assumption that demonstratives are heads of a dedicated projection, DemP, the study argues that demonstratives in Haili Arabic are endowed with a set of uninterpretable Φ-features. Demonstratives function as a probe, and the head noun is the goal valuing their Φ-features. A by-product of this value is the morphological form of the given...

Large Shareholder’s Identity With Linguistic World and Stock Price Synchronicity: Evidence From a MENA Market and the Way Languages Affect Them
- Tamadur Sulayman Al-Shamileh
I investigate the association between large shareholder’s identity and stock price synchronicity in a country where investor applying for languages is really lows protection is weak. My results show that stock prices in Jordan have synchronous behavior especially when the firm is large, consistent with previous empirical evidence on stock price behavior in low per capita GDP countries. Most of the public corporations are owned and controlled by families thus language exchanges such as speaking, reading and listening. In most of the family-controlled firms, the controlling family is also involved in firm’s management leading to loose separation between ownership and...
Interpretation of Dialogism in Alice Walker’s The Color Purple
- Xiamei PENG
On the basis of Bakhtin’s dialogic theory, this paper discusses the phenomenon of double-voicedness in Alice Walker’s novel, The Color Purple, in terms of its language (dialect and standard English), narration (two narrators and the relationship between narrators, characters and the reader) and reporting speech representation. After careful analysis of the discourse in the novel, the author thus draws the conclusion that the novel is dialogic and that different voices interact, contend and influence on one another, resulting in a multi-voiced effect in the novel. By means of using a linguistic theory to interpret a novel, the author tries to...
The Construction of Controlled English Writing Based on Register Theory
- Xiaoxia CHEN
It’s believed that language is produced in the situation by systemic-functional linguists. Language varies with situations, which produce different registers. By analyzing different situations, register theory describes and interprets linguistic changes and varieties. As a significant output activity, English writing comprehensively reflects English proficiency of EFL (English as a Foreign Language) learners, for it is not only associated with vocabulary, grammar and sentences, but also English thinking pattern and situations, etc. Register theory is of guiding significance for English writing. The paper puts forward the controlled English writing mode as both intelligent and feasible solutions from the perspectives of register...
