Book Review: The Columbia Guide To American Indian Literatures Of The United States Since 1945, Edited By Eric Cheyfitz. New York: Columbia University Press, Sebastian Braun Dec 2006

Book Review: The Columbia Guide To American Indian Literatures Of The United States Since 1945, Edited By Eric Cheyfitz. New York: Columbia University Press, Sebastian Braun

Sebastian Braun

This newest guide to modern Native American literature is divided in two parts. The first part consists of the editor's introduction to the context of American Indian literatures. The second part has four chapters, one each
providing analysis of literary works in fiction, poetry, drama, and nonfiction and introducing a selection of authors and works in these categories. As I do not wish to critique the selections of writers, nor the biographies of
the selected authors, this review will focus on the book's overall, theoretical approach to Native literatures which defines the text.

Processing Instruction And Meaningful Output-Based Instruction: Effects On Second Language Development, Kara Morgan-Short, Harriet Bowden Feb 2006

Processing Instruction And Meaningful Output-Based Instruction: Effects On Second Language Development, Kara Morgan-Short, Harriet Bowden

Harriet Wood Bowden

This study investigates the effects of meaningful input- and output-based practice on SLA. First-semester Spanish students (n = 45) were assigned to processing instruction, meaningful output-based instruction, or control groups. Experimental groups received the same input in instruction but received meaningful practice that was input or output based. Both experimental groups showed significant gains on immediate and delayed interpretation and production tasks. Repeated-measures analyses of variance showed that overall, for interpretation, both experimental groups outperformed the control group. For production, only the meaningful output-based group outperformed the control group. These results suggest that not only input-based but also output-based instruction can ...

Novela Negra, Modernismo Y Revolución En Sombra De La Sombra, De Paco Ignacio Taibo Ii, Luis Cano Dec 2005

Novela Negra, Modernismo Y Revolución En Sombra De La Sombra, De Paco Ignacio Taibo Ii, Luis Cano

Luis C. Cano

El presente artículo analiza la forma en que Paco Ignacio Taibo II recurre a la novela negra para efectuar un análisis del contexto histórico y cultural en el que se sitúa su obra Sombra de la sombra. Apoyándose en lo que denomina «neopolicíaco», Taibo efectúa una evaluación de conceptos como ética, intelectualidad y aparato estatal, y del impacto que las escrituras del modernismo y de la revolución mexicana tuvieron en la formación del México moderno.

Individual Differences: Age, Sex, Working Memory, And Prior Knowledge, Harriet Bowden, Christina Sanz, C Stafford

Harriet Wood Bowden

Winner of the 2006 Kenneth W. Mildenberger Award from the Modern Language Association How do people learn nonnative languages? Is there one part or function of our brains solely dedicated to language processing, or do we apply our general information-processing abilities when learning a new language? In this book, an interdisciplinary collaboration of scholars and researchers presents an overview of the latter approach to adult second language acquisition and brings together, for the first time, a comprehensive picture of the latest research on this subject.

Clearly organized into four distinct but integrated parts, Mind and Context in Adult Second Language ...

Náhuatl Y Español: Un Caso De Convergencia Sintáctica, Alma Ramirez-Trujillo Dec 2004

Náhuatl Y Español: Un Caso De Convergencia Sintáctica, Alma Ramirez-Trujillo

Alma P Ramirez-Trujillo

Recent research suggests that, when the two languages spoken by bilinguals share certain features, but one of the languages favors the use of a particular structure, possibly due to pragmatic reasons, the two languages may converge in the relevant domain (Hulk and Müller 2000; Müller and Hulk 2001; Sánchez 2003; Sánchez, 2004; Toribio 2001). This in turn may lead to convergence between the two languages in a society where most of the speakers are bilingual, assuming bilinguals and second language learners are often the agents of language change (Winford, 2003). Classical Nahuatl is a polysynthetic language (Baker, 2001) with variable ...


El Hombre Artificial De Horacio Quiroga Y Los Comienzos De La Ciencia Ficción Hispanoamericana, Luis Cano Dec 2004

El Hombre Artificial De Horacio Quiroga Y Los Comienzos De La Ciencia Ficción Hispanoamericana, Luis Cano

Luis C. Cano

Contrary to popular belief, science fiction has had a long tradition in Spanish American letters. Although preceded by the novels Viaje maravilloso del señor Nic-Nac by the Argentine writer Eduardo Holmberg and Desde Júpiter by the Chilean Francisco Miralles, Horacio Quiroga’s El hombre artificial (1910) has a special significance for the genre: it is certainly the first novel to illustrate the tensions among fantasy, esoteric tradition, and SF in Spanish American narrative, while at the same time establishing an explicit dialogue with the British tradition of the genre, especially with Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein.

Testing A Diffusion Of Innovations In Education Model (Diem), Mark K. Warford Dec 2004

Testing A Diffusion Of Innovations In Education Model (Diem), Mark K. Warford

Mark K Warford

Following is a report on a questionnaire study based on the Diffusion of Innovations in Education Model (DIEM), which synthesizes research on educational innovations. The social system under study included foreign language teacher educators in eleven Southeastern states (N=83). Regional foreign language teacher educators were targeted for gathering data regarding the ACTFL (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) Proficiency Guidelines (1986), a language teaching innovation. In analyzing results, inferential statistics tested the weight of some of the DIEM’s predictions about the nature of educational change. In terms of the model’s predictions, state mandates appear to ...
