Intelligibility, Oral Communication, And The Teaching Of Pronunciation, John M. Levis Sep 2018

Intelligibility, Oral Communication, And The Teaching Of Pronunciation, John M. Levis

English Books

A proper understanding of intelligibility is at the heart of effective pronunciation teaching, and with it, successful teaching of speaking and listening. Far from being an optional 'add-it-on-if-we-have-time' language feature, pronunciation is essential because of its tremendous impact on speech intelligibility. Pronunciation dramatically affects the ability of language learners to make themselves understood and to understand the speech of others. But not all elements of pronunciation are equally important. Some affect intelligibility a great deal, while others do not. With a strong emphasis on classroom practice and how pronunciation teaching can be more effectively approached in different teaching contexts, this ...

Citizens Of Memory: Affect, Representation, And Human Rights In Postdictatorship Argentina, Silvia Tandeciarz Nov 2017

Citizens Of Memory: Affect, Representation, And Human Rights In Postdictatorship Argentina, Silvia Tandeciarz

Arts & Sciences Books

Citizens of Memory explores efforts at recollection in post-dictatorship Argentina and the hoped-for futures they set in motion. The material, visual, narrative, and pedagogical interventions it analyzes address the dark years of state repression (1976-1983) while engaging ongoing debates about how this traumatic past should be transmitted to future generations. Two theoretical principles structure the book’s approach to cultural recall: the first follows from an understanding of memory as a social construct that is always as much about the past as it is of the present; the second from the observation that what distinguishes memory from history is affect ...


The Disperata, From Medieval Italy To Renaissance France, Gabriella Scarlatta Aug 2017

The Disperata, From Medieval Italy To Renaissance France, Gabriella Scarlatta

Research in Medieval and Early Modern Culture

Rich with morose invectives, the Italian lyric genre of the disperata builds toward a crescendo of despair, with the speakers damning and condemning their beloved, their enemy, their destiny, Fortune, Love, and often themselves. Although Petrarch and Petrarchism have been amply analyzed as fertile sources for late Renaissance poets in France, the influence of the Italian disperata in this context has yet to receive proper scholarly attention. This study explores how the language and themes of the disperata - including hopelessness, death, suicide, doomed love, collective trauma, and damnations - are creatively adopted by several generations of poets from its beginning in ...

Glocalizing Democracy Through A Reception Of The Classics In Equatorial Guinean Theatre: The Case Of Morgades’ Antígona, Elisa G. Rizo Sep 2016

Glocalizing Democracy Through A Reception Of The Classics In Equatorial Guinean Theatre: The Case Of Morgades’ Antígona, Elisa G. Rizo

World Languages and Cultures Books

Born in 1931, Equatorial Guinean academic and intellectual Trinidad Morgades1 has seen the transition of her country from a Spanish colony to an independent nation. She has witnessed the emergence of postcolonial regimes and the transformation of her country's economy from one based on cacao and timber production under the Spanish colonial administration to one centered on a booming oil industry in postcolonial times.2 Her only published literary work, Antigona (1991), a drama referencing Sophocles's famous tragedy, is concerned with a crucial national process that she has observed: the failure of the democratic efforts in her nation.


Receptions Of The Classics In The African Diaspora Of The Hispanophone And Lusophone Worlds, Elisa G. Rizo, Madeleine M. Henry Sep 2016

Receptions Of The Classics In The African Diaspora Of The Hispanophone And Lusophone Worlds, Elisa G. Rizo, Madeleine M. Henry

World Languages and Cultures Books

Atlantis Otherwise expands the study of the African diaspora by focusing on postcolonial literary expressions from Latin America and Africa. The book studies the presence of classical references in texts written by writers (black and non-black) who are committed to the articulation of the fragmented history of the African experience from the Middle Passage to the present outside of Euro-centric views. Consequently, this book addresses the silencing of the African Diaspora within the official discourses of Latin America and Hispanic Africa, as well as the limitations that linguistic and geographic boundaries have imposed upon scholarship. The contributors address questions related ...

A Person Is Born: Stalinist Myth Of The Great Family In Film Genres Of The Thaw, Alexander V. Prokhorov Jan 2005

A Person Is Born: Stalinist Myth Of The Great Family In Film Genres Of The Thaw, Alexander V. Prokhorov

Arts & Sciences Book Chapters

Метафоры социального и кровного родства стали в последнее время едва ли не господствующей формой концептуанализации политического, экономического и культурного развития: от "ельцинской Семьи" до "питерского клана", от "Солдатских матерей" до "батяни-комбата", от "солнцевской братвы" до "дедовщины", наконец, от "Моей семьи" до кинодилогии о "Брате". Используя обширный исторический, социологический и культурологический материал, статьи, собранные в этой книге, пытаются объяснить привлекательность родственных связей и семейных уз. В первом томе сборника исследуются идеологические контексты существования семей, способы формирования семейных союзов, а также разнообразные бытовые тактики и половые стратегии семейной жизни. Во второй том вошли статьи, посвященные различным типам семейного воспитания детей, проблемам жизни ...


Race And The Rise Of Standard American, Thomas Paul Bonfiglio Jan 2002

Race And The Rise Of Standard American, Thomas Paul Bonfiglio

Bookshelf

This study examines the effect of race-consciousness upon the pronunciation of American English and upon the ideology of standardization in the twentieth century. It shows how the discourses of prescriptivist pronunciation, the xenophobic reaction against immigration to the eastern metropolises - especially New York - and the closing of the western frontier together constructed an image of the American West and Midwest as the locus of proper speech and ethnicity. This study is of interest to scholars and students in linguistics, American studies, cultural studies, Jewish studies, and studies in race, class, and gender.
