Term paper4.081 Words / ~14 pages Würzburg Estuary English wird heutzutage viel in den Medien verwendet, z.B. von BBC-Sprechern­. Des Weiteren hat es sich inzwischen durch Pendler und Umzüge weiter bis nach Cambridge im Westen und Norwich im Süden verbreitet. (vgl. Rosewarne, 1994) Zur Zeit wird es in den Medien noch stark diskutiert. Einige lehnen es ab, da es zu sehr dem Cockney ähnelt und somit kein hohes soziales Prestige hat. Andere dagegen begrüßen es, da es den sozialen Status verschleiert. Viele Politiker sprechen es, da sie nicht zu distinguiert und hoch gestellt klingen möchten und dem Volk näher sein wollen. Diese Diskussionen werden wohl noch etwas weitergehen und die Tatsache, dass Estuary English so schlecht zu definieren und einzugrenzen ist, macht die Sache noch kniffliger. 4.

At the beginning those were just gestures or simple sounds but as we evolved so did our communication­. Although we use language automatically every day as a part of normal human behaviour it is a much complex process than one might think and a very powerfull tool. Before J. L. Austin and J. R.

Kontextuelle und funktionsgesc­hicht­lich­e Ebene „Finite and Infinite“ stellt eines der Spätwerke von EBB dar und wurde 1850 veröffentlich­t. Zu dieser Zeit hatte das Sonett als literarische Kunstform schon rund 300 Jahre in England begeistert, vor allem William Shakespeare hatte mit seiner Sonettsammlun­g für eine große Beliebtheit dieser Kunstform gesorgt. „Finite and Infinite“ wurde veröffentlich­t, als Elizabeth zusammen mit ihrem Mann bereits in Italien wohnte und gilt als eines ihrer Spätwerke.

Term paper4.519 Words / ~14 pages Karl-Franzens-Universität Graz - KFU Code-Switchin­g in Bilinguals - Mixture of languages 0 Abstract Code switching in bilinguals Code switching is a language phenomena, applied by bilinguals as a form of interaction. It relates to social-group membership in bilingual and multilingual communities and is the concurrent use of more than one language in conversation. Speakers who practice code-switchin­g, which is a natural product of bilingualism, are fluent in each language. In my paper I will provide a theoretical background on the subject, accompanied by supporting examples. I will give an overview of the relationship between language and cognition, that is the neurological mechanism responsible for switching. Furthermore, I will describe the different types (i.e. intersententi­al/in­tra-­sentential switching) and mechanics of switching. Additionally,­…[show more]

Term paper6.754 Words / ~17 pages KHG, Bamberg With this sarcasm he boosts his statement, because it should show the thoughts of the beating parents. The reader gets an impression how those people think about a judgment like this. With the euphemism in line 17 “Klaps[ens]” he also creates sarcasm by downplaying these acts, what highlights their cruelness even more. “Angeblich selbstverstän­dlic­hen Umgangsformen­” (ll. 35) is irony because with the word alleged he challenges the credibility of this statement. With this sentence Luyken wants to make clear, that also in the past the manners were usually the same and the saying that the youth would be worse than ever. The last often used stylistic device is the personificati­on. In line 6 he writes “der elterliche Geduldsfaden riß“ for visualizing how exhausting children sometimes are. He uses the image of a thread for the…[show more]
Term paper2.148 Words / ~5 pages Freie Universität Berlin - FU On the Politeness Theory of Levinson and Brown. Which are the five politeness strategies a speaker can apply? 1. Introduction Imagine you are in a foreign country, in a city you do not know. A way to a restaurant or a hotel is as unknown to you as the way to the tourist office. But at the latter location you could at least get direction to the former. Immediately you ask the next pedestrian for the way. But what would you say? Would you directly say “Tell me the way to the tourist office!” or would you rather ask “Excuse me sir, do you have a second to tell me the way to the tourist office?”? Obviously the second utterance is perceived as more polite? But what is politeness? Normally one would suggest that research in politeness is a topic for philosophers or psychologist, but Penelope Brown and Stephen C. Levinson approached this topic in their…[show more]

Term paper6.246 Words / ~21 pages Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen - JLU Giessen Literary Reading in EFL classroom - “Clothes” by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni 1. Introduction Dealing with literary texts has many great benefits for teaching English as a foreign language (cf. Diehr and Suhrkamp 2015: 21). For instance, literary texts offer learners various perspectives on the target language as well as on the social and cultural situations of foreign countries (cf. ibid.). They provide opportunities to address concepts of reality and thus contribute to personal development of learners (cf. ibid.). So, literature is an inevitable component of teaching English at secondary schools, and however, the many benefits of literary reading are well-known, the educational policy developments, such as “Bildungsstan­dar­ds für den mittleren Schulabschlus­s“ (BiSta) reveal considerable gaps (cf. ibid.).…[show more]

Term paper6.209 Words / ~18 pages Universität zu Köln They continue their proposal with the demonstration of two major faults in the MLFM account. First they found out that the MLFM model misses the information that this VO order happens only when the lexical VP is governed by a light verb. Code switching between a Spanish lexical verb and a German complement clause, or between a Spanish lexical verb and a German complement DP, it is assumed, does not affect the internal structure of these constituents. Further suspect in the requirements of the ML, arises as it is proved that in (5), the complement of the Spanish verb dijo has the verb final syntax of German clauses. In (6), the complement of the Spanish verb vio has the adjective + noun order of German DPs, not the noun + adjective order of Spanish DPs: (5) a. Juan dijo dass Johannes klug ist. Juan said that Johannes clever is ‘Juan said that…[show more]
Term paper1.267 Words / ~7 pages Karl-Franzens-Universität Graz - KFU The cooperative Principle Table of Contents Introduction This term paper will be concerned with the Cooperative Principle by Paul Grice. The Cooperative Principle is generally about cooperation with one another, thus the name Cooperative Principle. When two people speak, we can assume that they cooperate to bring meaning across. To bring meaning across properly, we have so called maxims of conversations­. These four maxims are the following (I will explain them in greater detail later in my work): Quality Maxim Quantity Maxim Relation Maxim Manner Maxim In the picture below you can see the linguist llama. He is usually a very whimsical guy. If asked whether Grice’s maxims are important, he replies that sandwiches are tasty, which does not really answer the question, does it? 1 Verbal communication­, whether interviews, conversations­…[show more]

Introduction – unaccompanied child immigration “Every child deserves a chance to grow up healthy, learning and safe.”1 Children need societies protection to be able to grow up safely. Yet there are thousands of children crossing the US-Mexican border on their own. These alien minors2 choose to undertake this dangerous journey for several reasons. One of the main reasons is to reunite with their families.
