  1. Literacy, Strategy, And Identity In Interaction: Vietnamese And Mexican Immigrant Students In Urban Catholic Schooling

    Leblanc, Robert
    This year-long interactional ethnography of four first- and second-generation Vietnamese and Mexican immigrant youth enrolled in an urban Catholic school traced how participants used a series of literacy-focused interactional strategies to negotiate the complexities of the contemporary Catholic school landscape. Urban US Catholic schools have undergone a radical transformation in the last 40 years, from overenrolled neighborhood parochial schools serving largely white Catholic students (Walch, 2003), to contracting decentralized schools serving Catholic immigrants from Asia and Latin American alongside large numbers of non-Catholic African American students (Hunt & Walch, 2010; Irving & Fosters, 1996; Louie & Holdaway, 2009; NCEA, 2014)....

  2. Realizing Morphemes In The Icelandic Noun Phrase

    Ingason, Anton Karl
    This dissertation defends a strong version of the view that linguistic surface complexity is the product of interactions between deep syntactic mechanisms and shallow interface-specific mechanisms. I argue that current developments in the theory of locality in Distributed Morphology (Embick 2010, Marantz 2013) impose boundaries on syntactic analysis and that morphemes cannot be identified and analyzed without studying their realization at the interfaces of syntax with both phonology and interpretation. The empirical focus is on a series of phenomena which are attested in Icelandic noun phrases and involve the realization of roots, category-defining heads, inflection morphemes, and definite articles, all...

  3. Imagining Convivial Multilingualism: Practices, Ideologies And Strategies In Diidxaz�/ Isthmus Zapotec Indigenous Language Education

    De Korne, Haley
    This study documents practices relating to the use of Isthmus Zapotec or Diidxaz�, an Indigenous language of Oaxaca, Mexico, in formal and non-formal education. Drawing on ethnographic monitoring and ethnography of language policy methodologies, I document, interpret, and ultimately engage in Isthmus Zapotec education with the aim of countering social inequalities produced through language hierarchies. Within the historical and socio-political context of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec where Isthmus Zapotec is spoken, I describe and categorize the actors, practices, and socio-political processes that currently constitute the educational language ecology. I draw on participant observation, interviews, photographs and documents collected during 17 months...

  4. Crowded Voice: Speech, Music And Community In Milan, 1955-1974

    Casadei, Delia
    This thesis explores the relationship of voice, language, and politics in Italian musical history. I do this through a double geographical and chronological lens: first, the city of Milan, a powerful political and cultural interface between Italy and Central Europe; secondly, the years 1955-1974, key decades in the constitution of Italy’s first democratic government and years of vertiginous anthropological changes across the peninsula.Across the four chapters of my thesis, I sketch a heterogeneous and thickly populated network of musical activities—ranging from high-modernist tape music to opera, neofolk records, to pop hits. I argue the musical production for voice of this...

  5. Change And Standardization In Anyang: Writing And Culture In Bronze Age China

    Anderson, Matthew Mccutchen
    This dissertation is particularly concerned with various changes that occurred over roughly the last two centuries of the Shang period, that is, during the Anyang period, which stretches from approximately 1250 BCE to approximately 1050 BCE. This period, which begins just before the earliest evidence for writing in what is now China and stretches until the fall of the last Shang king, contains the entirety of the recorded history of the Shang dynasty. After discussing the dating of Shang oracle-bone inscriptions, I first address changes in Shang writing, demonstrating that it becomes increasingly regularized over the period. The earliest examples...

  6. Cycles And Stability In Linguistic Signaling

    Ahern, Christopher Andrew
    This dissertation advances our understanding of the roles played by pragmatic and grammatical competence in theories of language change by using mathematical and statistical methods to analyze the cross-linguistic change in the expression of negation known as Jespersen's cycle. In the history of Middle English this change is characterized by two transitions: from pre-verbal ne to an initially emphatic embracing ne...not; from embracing ne...not to post-verbal not. This description conflates two often related process: the formal cycle describes changes in the forms of negation available and consists of the transitions from pre-verbal to embracing to post-verbal negation; the functional cycle...

  7. La descripción y la especificación de los niveles del Marco común europeo para las lenguas: ¿Aportes para una nueva dinámica?

    riba, patrick
    Algunos de los documentos realizados por o con la colaboración del Consejo de Europa han jugado un papel decisivo en la enseñanza de las lenguas extranjeras, contribuyendo por ejemplo a la introducción del enfoque comunicativo en los años 70, potencialmente más adaptado para favorecer la apropiación operacional de las lenguas y favorecer así mismo la libre circulación de las personas y de las ideas.En esta perspectiva se creó, bajo el liderazgo de John Trim, director del proyecto entre 1975 y 1997, un programa de referencialización para definir las necesidades lingüísticas de los diferentes grupos de aprendices (turistas, inmigrantes, comerciantes…) del...

  9. [en] PART OF SPEECH - FROM ANCIENT GREECE TO GOOGLE: A STUDY MOTIVATED BY TAGSET CONVERSION

    LUIZA FRIZZO TRUGO
    [pt] A dissertação Classes de palavras — da Grécia Antiga ao Google: um estudo motivado pela conversão de tagsets consiste em um estudo linguístico sobre classes gramaticais. A pesquisa tem como motivação uma tarefa específica da Linguística Computacional: a anotação de classes gramaticais (POS, do inglês part of speech ). Especificamente, a dissertação relata desafios e opções linguísticas decorrentes da tarefa de alinhamento entre dois tagsets: o tagset utilizado na anotação do corpus Mac-Morpho, um corpus brasileiro de 1.1 milhão de palavras, e o tagset proposto por uma equipe dos laboratórios Google e que vem sendo utilizado no âmbito do projeto Universal Dependencies (UD). A dissertação tem como metodologia a...

  10. Neurophysiological Vocal Source Modeling for Biomarkers of Disease

    Ciccarelli, Gregory A.; Quatieri, Thomas F.; Ghosh, Satrajit S.
    Speech is potentially a rich source of biomarkers for detecting and monitoring neuropsychological disorders. Current biomarkers typically comprise acoustic descriptors extracted from behavioral measures of source, filter, prosodic and linguistic cues. In contrast, in this paper, we extract vocal features based on a neurocomputational model of speech production, reflecting latent or internal motor control parameters that may be more sensitive to individual variation under neuropsychological disease. These features, which are constrained by neurophysiology, may be resilient to artifacts and provide an articulatory complement to acoustic features. Our features represent a mapping from a low-dimensional acoustics-based feature space to a high-dimensional...

  11. An approach to Language Tourism

    MOHEDANO CAMACHO, NURIA
    Language Tourism, linguistic tourism, edu-tourism, language vacation, or educational trips. Many definitions try to explain how it must be called this kind of tourism, that nowadays prompts the displacement of thousands of travellers motivated by the desire of learning languages. Discussing many aspects, such as its historical background and its cultural, and promotional impacts. A questionnaire study through a group of international students, demonstrate that it may be considerer a new branch within the tourism industry and for the most of the participants, the main motivation for travelling was learning the language. Their preferences gives data for its implementation and mejora. Economic analysis, shows that this new branch...

  12. La teoría de las inteligencias múltiples aplicada a la enseñanza del inglés como lengua extranjera

    García de Celis, Gema
    La teoría de las Inteligencias Múltiples de Gardner ha supuesto una revolución en el ámbito de las teorías sobre la mente aportando importantes descubrimientos sobre el carácter de la misma que tienen gran importancia a la hora de entender el modo en el que el aprendizaje tiene lugar. Por este motivo la teoría puede ser inspiradora para los educadores a la hora de diseñar programas de enseñanza acordes con una visión acertada y realista en cuanto a los distintos modos de presentar los contenidos, de forma que estos modos sintonicen con las distintas inteligencias de sus estudiantes y se les...

  14. Percepción de la (des)cortesía de los actos exhortativos en la adquisición del español por dicentes de E/LE

    Caldero Cornejo, Juan Antonio
    As it is known (Haverkate 1994, Bravo 1996; 1998, Hernández 2002) in Spanish, interlocutors prefer to choose a more direct and assertive way of saying things, while in English the opposite, i.e. less direct and less assertive seems to be the norm. Therefore, from a cross-cultural perspective, there are direct speech acts that may be considered polite in peninsular Spanish while being considered impolite by members of another cultural group. This thesis presents some answers that might help learners of E/LE, within a British educational context, to avoid misunderstandings in communicative exchange. More specifically, this work studies learners’ perceptions of...

  15. Análisis del tratamiento de la descripción escrita en libros de texto de 1º y de 3º de educación secundaria obligatoria, en el bloque temático de geografía, y su proyección en la formación del profesorado

    Mateo Girona, María Teresa
    Enseñar a escribir en cualquier contexto de la sociedad del conocimiento es una tarea de los profesores del siglo XXI. Este planteamiento encierra un nuevo concepto de alfabetización. Aprender a escribir, hoy día, supone algo más que el dominio del código lingüístico; requiere desarrollar la capacidad de expresarse adecuadamente en cualquier ámbito de la sociedad presente. Asimismo, esta tarea se propone como una responsabilidad para todos los profesores de las distintas materias, no como una tarea solo de los docentes dedicados a las áreas lingüísticas. El enfoque que subyace en esta idea se relaciona con una enseñanza que concibe la...

  16. La composición narrativa de la identidad docente de (futuros) profesores de inglés: desear, apasionarse, imaginar, transitar…

    Sarasa, María Cristina
    En este artículo se relatan experiencias narrativas espontáneas en el aula de una asignatura del Área de Habilidades Lingüísticas del Profesorado de Inglés, carrera en la que ejerzo la docencia desde hace muchos años en nuestra Facultad de Humanidades (Universidad Nacional de Mar del Plata). Luego de explorar representaciones heroicas en tres films durante una unidad sobre estudios irlandeses del plan de trabajo docente (Michael Collins, Jordan, 1996; El viento que acaricia el prado, Loach, 2006; El guardián, McDonagh, 2011), tres pequeñas cohortes de estudiantes en 2011, 2012 y 2013 voluntariamente relataron acerca de las vidas de personas comunes que,...

  17. La literatura, desde una postura postcolonial, para el desarrollo de la sensibilidad intercultural en el nivel superior

    Saubidet Oyhamburu, Stella Maris; Polastri, Vanesa
    Nuestra experiencia didáctica se lleva a cabo en la cátedra de Lengua y Cultura 1, del 1er año del Profesorado de Inglés, en el ISFD y T No 41 de Almirante Brown. Esta institución es de gestión estatal y es casa de estudios de otras ocho carreras de formación docente. En lo particular, hemos visto que los alumnos de 1er año poseen un dominio heterogéneo de la LE (lengua extranjera), mayormente limitado al desarrollo de la competencia gramatical, dejando de lado otras dimensiones del aprendizaje del inglés. Entre estos podríamos mencionar aquellos aspectos relacionados con la literatura, el discurso, los...
