The eleven contributions to this volume, written by expert corpus linguists, tackle corpora from a wide range of perspectives and aim to shed light on the numerous linguistic and pedagogical uses to which corpora can be put. They present cutting-edge research in the authors’ respective domain of expertise and suggest directions for future research. The main focus of the book is on learner corpora, but it also includes reflections on the role of other types of corpora, such as native corpora, expert users corpora, parallel corpora or corpora of New Englishes. For readers who are already familiar with corpora, this volume offers an informed account of the key role that corpus data play in applied linguistics today. As for readers who are new to corpus linguistics, the overview of approaches, methods and domains of applications presented will undoubtedly help them develop their own taste for corpora. This volume has been edited in honour of Sylviane Granger, who has been one of the pioneers of learner corpus research.

Grammar for Teachers

A Guide to American English for Native and Non-Native Speakers

Author: Andrea DeCapua

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 3319339168

Category: Education

Page: 439

View: 2059

Updated and revised with more examples and expanded discussions, this second edition continues the aim of providing teachers with a solid understanding of the use and function of grammatical structures in American English. The book avoids jargon and presents essential grammatical structures clearly and concisely. Dr. DeCapua approaches grammar from a descriptive rather than a prescriptive standpoint, discussing differences between formal and informal language, and spoken and written English. The text draws examples from a wide variety of authentic materials to illustrate grammatical concepts. The many activities throughout the book engage users in exploring the different elements of grammar and in considering how these elements work together to form meaning. Users are encouraged to tap into their own, often subconscious, knowledge of grammar to consciously apply their knowledge to their own varied teaching settings. The text also emphasizes the importance of understanding grammar from the perspective of English language learners, an approach that allows teachers to better appreciate the difficulties these learners face. Specific areas of difficulties for learners of English are highlighted throughout.

Das Herz der Finsternis

ISBN: 3954182076

Category: Fiction

Page: 144

View: 5123

"Mit der Erzählung »Herz der Finsternis« gelangte Joseph Conrad zu Weltruhm. Der ungewöhnlich symbolreiche Text wird seit Erscheinen immer wieder aufs Neue interpretiert. Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts, der Flussdampferkapitän Marlow reist im Auftrag einer belgischen Handelskompanie tief in den Kongo. Auf seiner Reise erlebt er unverständliche Wirrnisse, Sinnlosigkeit und eine unvorstellbare Ausbeutung der Einheimischen. Die Reise auf dem Fluss entwickelt sich immer mehr zur Reise in sein eigenes Unterbewusstsein, in ein finsteres Labyrinth von Lüge und Schuld. Marlow trifft auf den berüchtigten Elfenbeinhändler Kurtz. Dieser hat aus seinem Handelsposten ein Zentrum des Bösen gemacht und sich so eine machtvolle Position erschaffen, von der aus er scheinbar frei schalten und walten darf. »Herz der Finsternis« hat von Anfang an Leser und Interpreten fasziniert und hat bis heute nichts von seiner Aktualität eingebüßt. Der Stoff diente als Vorlage mehrerer Verfilmungen. Am bekanntesten: »Apocalypse Now« von Francis Ford Coppola mit Marlon Brando in der Rolle des charismatischen und geheimnisvollen Ausbeuters (diesmal) asiatischer Einheimischer während des Vietnamkrieges und »Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes« von Herzog mit Klaus Kinski als wahnsinnigen Eroberer und Vollstrecker eines ausbeuterischen, europäischen Kolonialismus in Süd-Amerika. 1. Auflage, ISBN 978-3-95418-207-7 Umfang: 149 Normseiten bzw. 144 Buchseiten Null Papier Verlag - www.null-papier.de"

Wörter im Kopf

eine Einführung in das mentale Lexikon

Author: Jean Aitchison

Publisher: N.A

ISBN: N.A

Category: Lexicology

Page: 367

View: 1600

Das Buch behandelt den menschlichen Wortspeicher, das "mentale Lexikon," und damit die Frage, wie wir Worter lernen, verstehen, produzieren, speichern und finden. Im Mittelpunkt des Originals "Words in the Mind - An Introduction to the Mental Lexicon" (Blackwells: 2. Auflage 1994) steht die Betrachtung und Erforschung der englischen Sprache; die deutsche Fassung enthalt jedoch auch zahlreiche Beispiele aus dem Deutschen. Das Buch ist einfach und verstandlich geschrieben und gibt einen ausfuhrlichen Uberblick uber die Forschung zum mentalen Lexikon. Es richtet sich vor allem an Studierende der Linguistik und Psychologie, doch auch an Dozenten, Padagogen und interessierte Laien.
