Don Quixote In Russia In The Early Twentieth Century: The Problem Of Perception And Interpretation, 2018 Marshall University
Don Quixote In Russia In The Early Twentieth Century: The Problem Of Perception And Interpretation, Slav N. Gratchev Phd
Modern Languages Faculty Research
This study logically continues my previous examination of the perception of Don Quixote in Russia throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and how this perception changed over time. In this new article, I will again use a number of materials inaccessible to English-speaking scholars to demonstrate how the perception of Don Quixote by Russian intelligentsia shifted from humorous to complete admiration and even idealization of the hero. Don Quixote was more and more frequently compared with Prometheus, the most powerful and most romanticized personage of Greek methodology. Indeed, “начав юмористический роман, осмеивающий увлечение современников рыцарскими похождениями, Сервантес и не думал ...

French Land, Algerian People: Nineteenth-Century French Discourse On Algeria And Its Consequences, 2018 Chapman University
French Land, Algerian People: Nineteenth-Century French Discourse On Algeria And Its Consequences, Paige Gulley
Language is fundamental in shaping our understanding of the world we live, and as such, studies of discourse are invaluable in providing insight into the worldviews of historical actors. Though much has been written on the depiction of colonized peoples and its Oriental undertones, little has been said about the discourse on a colony itself. In examining the French discourse on Algeria in the nineteenth century, it becomes clear that the French privileged Algeria as a rich and valuable resource for France even as they decried the “backwardness” of the people of Algeria. While ignoring its inhabitants completely or discussing ...
A Longitudinal Study On Language Learning Vocabulary In L2 Spanish, 2018 Iowa State University
A Longitudinal Study On Language Learning Vocabulary In L2 Spanish, Cristina Pardo-Ballester
World Languages and Cultures Conference Papers, Posters and Proceedings
Some learners perform better on listening tests that include visual input instead of audio only (Wagner, 2008) while others have found no difference in the performance of participants in the two test formats (Batty, 2015). These mixed results make it necessary to examine the role of using audio and video in listening comprehension (LC). This study examines the effect of input modality on the learning of new vocabulary with intermediate L2 learners. The study gave four versions of the same text: a baseline in audio format, a baseline in video format, a redundancy-enhanced version in audio format and a redundancy-enhanced ...

Rudolf Laban's Dream: Re-Envisioning And Re-Scoring Ballet, Choreutics, And Simple Functional Movements With Vector Signs For Deflecting Diagonal Inclinations, Jeffrey Scott Longstaff
Journal of Movement Arts Literacy
Several methods of movement notation, forerunners of modern-day Labanotation/Kinetography were published by Rudolf Laban in his 1926 book Choreographie. One of these has been referred to as vector signs because they represent movement as orientations (slopes) of lines through space. This article begins by comparing Labanotation direction symbols with Laban's earlier vector signs by looking at differences when simple sequences are scored in both formats. Concepts of space within the vector signs are examined, particularly Laban's idea of deflecting inclinations where movements are categorized as mixtures of two fundamental contrasting spatial and dynamic tendencies: dimensional stability and ...
Radical Social Ecology As Deep Pragmatism: A Call To The Abolition Of Systemic Dissonance And The Minimization Of Entropic Chaos, Arielle Brender
Student Theses 2015-Present
This paper aims to shed light on the dissonance caused by the superimposition of Dominant Human Systems on Natural Systems. I highlight the synthetic nature of Dominant Human Systems as egoic and linguistic phenomenon manufactured by a mere portion of the human population, which renders them inherently oppressive unto peoples and landscapes whose wisdom were barred from the design process. In pursuing a radical pragmatic approach to mending the simultaneous oppression and destruction of the human being and the earth, I highlight the necessity of minimizing entropic chaos caused by excess energy expenditure, an essential feature of systems that aim ...
From Davao City To Daly City: Examining Translanguaging And Transnationalism In The 1.5-Generation Filipin(A/O) Americans Of Daly City, 2018 The University of San Francisco
From Davao City To Daly City: Examining Translanguaging And Transnationalism In The 1.5-Generation Filipin(A/O) Americans Of Daly City, Rita Ewing
In the field of migration studies, research on transnationalism has been well
established. Applying an intersectional framework of post-colonial narrative and
linguistic anthropology to transnational migration, this research allows us to better
understand how the transnational immigrant deploys language. Through a nostalgia
studies approach, this study is able to analyze how transnational immigrants place value
on their heritage and second languages, and reflexively deploy their language sets to
reflect their unique positionality. This paper is a case study examination of five adult
members of the 1.5-generation of Filipin(a/o) American immigrants, who immigrated to
the US before the ...

Publications and Research
The overall purpose of this research was to show the origin and relationship of the Xhosa language between the Khoi-Khoi People, S.E.K. Mqhayi, and the crew on the S.S Mendi. They all had one thing they suffered from language discrimination. Most important the research also attempts to show how a language can die out when native speakers have no cultural capital.

Somali Refugees In Buffalo: The Impact Of Language Barrier On The Health Care Access, 2018 State University of New York College at Buffalo - Buffalo State College
Somali Refugees In Buffalo: The Impact Of Language Barrier On The Health Care Access, Khadar Maow
Public Administration Master’s Projects
Over the course of the last decade, the United States of America has resettled many refugees from different parts of the world as part of its yearly refugee intake; upon settling to United States, refugees face challenges as they adjust to their new communities and new environments. The impacts of language barriers and health disparities among immigrant groups and refugees in the country have become increasingly unquestionable and clear. Due to inability to speak and communicate in English, current refugees in the U.S are facing problems when accessing healthcare facilities. The U.S. government and healthcare providers are trying ...
Classical Literature And The Retroaction Of Socialist Ideology—The Sovietization Of A Medieval Georgian Epic Poem And Its Mysterious Author, Diego Benning Wang
Madison Historical Review
Shota Rustaveli, presumed author of the medieval Georgian epic poem vepkhistqaosani (The Knight in the Panther's Skin), was one of the most celebrated cultural and historical figures in Soviet Georgia. However, not much is known about Rustaveli apart from his work. In this essay, I argue that a series of policies under the Soviet government transformed Rustaveli into a national symbol of Georgia, but the celebration of Rustaveli and his poem scarcely deviated from the ideological guidelines of the Soviet state. In discussing the impact and legacy of the Soviet promotion of Rustaveli, I purport to highlight the "national ...
What Did God Say? A Critical Analysis Of Dynamic Equivalence Theory, 2018 Cedarville University
What Did God Say? A Critical Analysis Of Dynamic Equivalence Theory, Katelyn R. Fisher
Linguistics Senior Research Projects
This paper is a critical analysis of Eugene A. Nida’s theory of dynamic equivalence as it relates to Bible translation, largely through a comparative study of select passages from the biblical genres of poetry, proverbs, and Pauline epistles. In addition, a brief survey distributed to 72 students at Cedarville University provides both qualitative and quantitative data regarding which English Bible version they prefer and why. Identifying Nida’s contributions to translation studies and analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of his theory in practice serves to provide implications for believers who are seeking to discern which English version is the ...
The Process Of Professional Translation, 2018 Northwestern College, Iowa
The Process Of Professional Translation, Veronica Chavez, Sophia Hold, Suresh Portillo, Alejandra Pulgarin, Makayla Tjernagel
Celebration of Research
The process of translating this dental document for a local children’s dentist’s clinic in Sioux Center is time-consuming and very researched-based. The critical element of this research involves researching specific dental and medical terms from Spanish-speaking sources, be it dental offices in Latin America and Spain or from professional translation sites. As a Translation 3 class, we were approached by a Northwestern alumnus who is practicing dentistry and opening her own dental clinic to request that we translate her dental clinic’s policies and agreements for her Hispanic patients. As a class, we undertook the task of translating ...
The Speech-Language Pathologist's Role In Family-Centered Bilingual Pre-Literacy Development, 2018 St Cloud State University
The Speech-Language Pathologist's Role In Family-Centered Bilingual Pre-Literacy Development, Kaitlyn Gohman, Megan Unterberger, Theresa L. Estrem
Award for "Best Our Husky Compact Reflection: Seek and Apply Knowledge".
Language development in bilingual children has been a debated topic among professionals and parents alike - deciphering whether it is a benefit or a hindrance to the child's language acquisition. It has been recently found that, "Learning another language will not cause or worsen speech or language problems. Bilingual children develop language skills just as other children do." (American Speech-Language-Hearing Association). Agreeing with this evidence-base, we are confident providing pre-literacy intervention in a language-rich bilingual environment. This project has allowed us to share our viewpoint with other educators ...
I Am A Magic Carpet: Life In A Liminal Space, 2018 University of Colorado, Boulder
I Am A Magic Carpet: Life In A Liminal Space, Yasmin Mazloom
Art Practices MFA Theses
The life of immigrants is discussed in two chapters: living in the country of origin and living abroad. The space that exists in between these two countries and places, is diminished and not discussed because it is not physical but more of a mental space that is rarely recognized unless it is experienced firsthand. Even though only a minority of people will understand this liminal space, it is important to be aware of its existence. Those who reside in this space need to recognize they are not alone, even if their liminal space is different from others, so that they ...
Cross-Cultural Analysis Of Turn-Taking Practices In English And Spanish Conversations, 2018 University of Alabama
Cross-Cultural Analysis Of Turn-Taking Practices In English And Spanish Conversations, Claudia B. Martínez
Vernacular: New Connections in Language, Literature, & Culture
Conversation analysis is primarily concerned with the tacit rules of turn-taking in standard systems of conversation—that is, with how people maneuver through spoken conversations to make themselves heard, while still allowing for dialogue to take place. Sacks, Schegloff & Jefferson had largely influenced the groundwork for this field in the late 1970s by setting forth certain proprieties of speech that deem overlaps, or interruptions, generally untoward and counterproductive. My goal here is to rethink this theory, however, to illuminate certain culturally specific instances of overlapping that do indeed lend themselves to the flow of the conversation. I compare such instances ...
