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 ...

Beauty In Bastardy? Breytenbach On Afrikaans And The Afrikaners, Brian G. Kennelly Jul 2005

Beauty In Bastardy? Breytenbach On Afrikaans And The Afrikaners, Brian G. Kennelly

World Languages and Cultures

Throughout the twentieth century activists in South Africa for the Afrikaans language struggled with, yet never resolved, the language/people, Afrikaans/Afrikaner issue, as Hermann Giliomee points out in his recent ‘biography’ of the Afrikaners (2003, 389). Was the Afrikaner community a racial or linguistic one? Was the push to promote Afrikaans subordinate to the entrenchment of a white supremacist government and ruling party? Was there a hegemonic or counter-hegemonic relationship between language and ethnicity? If the social identity of the Afrikaner was to be shaped by the acceptance of Afrikaans as a public language on equal footing with English ...

Prominence In Singapore And American English: Evidence From Reading Aloud, John M. Levis Jan 2005

Prominence In Singapore And American English: Evidence From Reading Aloud, John M. Levis

English Publications

English has spread far beyond the boundaries of the traditional L1 varieties (eg British, American, Australian English). Not only is English a leading foreign language throughout the world, it is also a central language for many multilingual communities throughout the world. The speakers of these new Englishes are not yet fully seen as ‘native speakers’ by many speakers from the traditional L1 varieties but cannot be called ‘non‐native speakers’ in any meaningful sense of the word. Kachru (1990) calls these new varieties ‘outer circle’ Englishes, a contrast to the ‘inner circle’ native speaker varieties and the ‘expanding circle’ foreign ...

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.
