An Experimental Study Of Early L3 Development: Age, Bilinguialism And Classroom Exposure, Catherine Stafford, Chrstina Stanz, Harriet Bowden 2011 University of Wisconsin - Madison

An Experimental Study Of Early L3 Development: Age, Bilinguialism And Classroom Exposure, Catherine Stafford, Chrstina Stanz, Harriet Bowden

Harriet Wood Bowden

This research investigated Spanish–English bilingual adults' initial learning of a third language (L3), Latin, comparing the learning processes and outcomes of early- and late-onset bilinguals. Thirty-three participants were classified as Early or Late Bilinguals according to their age of arrival to the USA, and they were introduced to Latin by means of an interactive computer programme that provided grammar explanation, input-based practice and explicit feedback. Results indicated that (1) overall, the two groups garnered similar benefits from the instructional treatment; (2) the Late Bilinguals maintained improvements in accurately marking noun case morphology in L3 production somewhat better than Early ...

The second is to explore the incorporation and subversion of the notion of merengue as a symbol of "barbarism" in the works of the Dominican writer Ramón Marrero Aristy.

Poeta Portugués Y Clásico Castellano, Luís Vaz De Camões (C.1524-1580): Edición Con Introducción Y Notas De Sus Sonetos Castellanos, Rose M. Sevillano 2011 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Poeta Portugués Y Clásico Castellano, Luís Vaz De Camões (C.1524-1580): Edición Con Introducción Y Notas De Sus Sonetos Castellanos, Rose M. Sevillano

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

This dissertation concerns the Castilian sonnets of Luís de Camões, a sixteenth century Portuguese poet known for his epic work Os Lusíadas (1572). Camões’ sonnets comprise the greater part of his minor works. I present those written in Castilian, which have not been fully explored. The study commences by focusing on its historical-literary context, revealing the background for the tradition of the lyric in the Iberian Peninsula, and incorporates a section dedicated to the history of the sonnet. In later chapters, I analyze the sonnets, and include endnotes that explicate the poetic language. Camões follows Petrarch, although stylistic factors betray ...

Mass Culture As Domination Or Resistance In Latin American Narratives, Tim Robbins 2011 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Mass Culture As Domination Or Resistance In Latin American Narratives, Tim Robbins

Theses, Dissertations, Student Research: Modern Languages and Literatures

Since the introduction of radio to Latin America in the 1930’s and later television in the 1950’s, mass culture has become an important and even contentious part of Latin American identity, and as such has also become an important part of Latin American narratives. In looking at the issue of mass culture, two basic approaches emerge: one can see mass culture as a force of domination or one can see it as a force of resistance. It is possible to trace these approaches through different time periods and geopolitical situations. The Mexican Onda writers, for instance, utilize the ...


Inherently Russian And Inherently Roman: Tolstoy’S Miniature Masterpiece “Alyosha The Pot”, Radha Balasubramanian, Thomas Nelson Winter 2011 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Inherently Russian And Inherently Roman: Tolstoy’S Miniature Masterpiece “Alyosha The Pot”, Radha Balasubramanian, Thomas Nelson Winter

Russian Language and Literature Papers

Leo Tolstoy’s short story, "Alyosha the Pot" is considered a masterpiece in miniature, which “completely fulfills Tolstoy’s prescription of ‘universal art.”1 In order to explain this universal appeal, we looked closely at its structure and found that there was a paradox in the way it was laid out: i.e., while the story was inherently Russian, it read as inherently Roman! This fusion of two great literary traditions becomes apparent in our article by examining the story within some of its Russian literary convention and showing the existence and use of Roman patterns in the chain of ...


Reading From The Periphery: Ricardo Piglia And The Liberal Arts, Roy Ketchum 2011 College of Saint Benedict/Saint John's University

Reading From The Periphery: Ricardo Piglia And The Liberal Arts, Roy Ketchum

Hispanic Studies Faculty Publications

"At colleges and universities in the United States, the liberal arts are seen as a worthy complement to focused learning in a discipline. A discipline is expected to offer specialization in preparation for further study, for careers and for professions. The liberal arts are charged with providing a broad intellectual background. The liberal arts can also serve as an entry point, a first exposure, to the range of disciplines. This is a special relationship promising balance between depth and breadth. Many of the arguments put forth in favor of a strong liberal arts education also emphasize the practical value of ...

Italianization Of Emigration To Canada: Or, What Is The Role Of The Italies Outside Of Italy?, Eveljn Ferraro

Modern Languages & Literature

In Migrancy, Culture, Identity Iain Chambers observes that present-day critical thought frequently adopts metaphors of movement, migration, maps, travel, and sometimes tourism to describe and explain the encounter with people and cultures that the European rationale is no longer able to domesticate in an era of increasing globalization. Chambers himself uses the metaphor of journey to represent this encounter and, taking on Said' s reflections on exile and his idea that homes are always provisional, 1 he states that the questions we meet en route displace our terms of reference, which are the certainty of the point of departure and ...

A Response To Campbell, Edward J. Vajda 2011 Western Washington University

A Response To Campbell, Edward J. Vajda

Modern & Classical Languages

The Dene–Yeniseian (DY) hypothesis argues that Athabaskan-Eyak-Tlingit (NaDene) is related to the Siberian family Yeniseian, which consists of Ket and several extinct relatives. The strongest evidence comes from the verb-internal tense–mood system, action nominal (gerund, infinitive) morphology, and sound correspondences based on cognates in basic vocabulary. Shared words for ‘conifer needles’, ‘conifer pitch’, ‘rump, leg’, ‘liver’, and others reveal that phonemic tones arose separately in Yeniseian and Athabaskan from an earlier distinction involving coda glottalization, the original glottal articulation surviving in Tlingit and Eyak. Proponents of the DY hypothesis regard such evidence as indicative of genealogical affinity.
