Can learner dictionaries help to build vocabulary? What are the preconditions for transforming learner dictionaries into teaching dictionaries? The study draws on the related disciplines of vocabulary didactics and learning psychology to examine the usefulness of learner dictionaries for systematic vocabulary acquisition. It goes on to test its hypotheses using eye-tracking studies.

Cognitive Lexicography

A New Approach to Lexicography Making Use of Cognitive Semantics

Author: Carolin Ostermann

English lexicography and linguistics have always shared close ties, yet the potential of cognitive linguistics for lexicography has only been hesitantly acknowledged in the literature. This is what cognitive lexicography attempts to change by using insights gained in cognitive semantic research for the development of new dictionary features. After a short survey of the history and practice of English monolingual learner lexicography, as well as an outline of the relationship between linguistics and lexicography, three new dictionary features are developed. They cover three different cognitive semantic theories as well as three different parts of the monolingual dictionary entry, each time for a new set of lexemes. Frame semantics, conceptual metaphor theory, as well as cognitive conceptions of polysemy, are used to create a new example section for agentive nouns, a new defining structure for emotion terms and a new microstructural arrangement for particle entries. Dictionary analyses on all, as well as user studies on two of the features, complement these suggestions. The monograph thus presents a new approach to lexicography that incorporates into its description of lexical items how humans perceive and conceptualise language.

The Bloomsbury Companion to Lexicography offers the definitive guide to a key area of linguistic study. Each companion is a comprehensive reference resource featuring an overview of key topics, research areas, new directions and a manageable guide to beginning or developing research in the field. Lexicography, as the practice of compiling dictionaries, has a long tradition that has been, for much of the time, largely independent of linguistics. The direct influence of linguistics on lexicography goes back around 50 years, though longer in the case of learners' dictionaries. The present volume aims to reflect on the research that has been and is being done in lexicography and to point the way forward. It tackles, among other topics, the critique of dictionaries in the electronic medium, the future of historical lexicography in the electronic mode with special reference to the online Oxford English Dictionary, and e-lexicography in general.

Hier wachsen drei Kinder auf: Rosemary, ihre ungestüme Schwester Fern und ihr großer Bruder Lowell. Sie könnten eine ganz normale Familie sein. Wäre ihr Vater nicht Wissenschaftler, und wäre Fern nicht ein ganz besonderes kleines Mädchen, das Wachsmalstifte verspeist, den perfekten Rückwärtssalto beherrscht und lacht wie eine Säge. Jahre nach Ferns Verschwinden erzählt Rosemary nun deren Geschichte. Denn erzählen war das Einzige, was Fern nie konnte. »Die wundersame Reise ins Herz einer Familie.

The Three Waves of Globalization

Winds of Change in Professional, Institutional and Academic Genres

Globalization, i.e. the spatio-temporal processes of change leading to a transformation in the organization of human affairs, is said to have started as long ago as the end of the 15th century. This first wave of globalization was subsequently followed by two others. The third wave of globalization, which began after 2000, has made the world noticeably smaller. In fact, technological innovations have sharply increased the availability of new modes and channels of communication. As a result, the sharing of knowledge and information all around the world has substantially increased and this has prompted the emergence of new ‘globalizing genres’. In addition, it has led to the implementation of a series of adaptations to the existing genres, in an attempt to guarantee their success and survival in an era which celebrates the need for a ‘global reach’. In order to investigate these ‘winds of change’ in generic studies, the present volume combines a historical perspective with a detailed survey of different contemporary discourses and genres situated in an array of contexts of interaction. Accordingly, the empirically informed analyses of discourses and genres do not only focus on the textual, intertextual and interdiscursive features, but also on the institutional, organizational, professional and socio-cultural settings, i.e. all those aspects which show how genres reflect changing disciplinary and professional cultures. As a consequence, and in line with the multi-faceted nature of genre, different reading paths can be followed in the present volume. On the one hand, it is possible to make a distinction between professional, institutional and academic contexts. On the other hand, the concept of change will also be investigated by focusing on oral, written and web-mediated genres. Throughout the volume, the different reading paths aim at highlighting the influence of the three waves of globalization on genre evolution, thus contributing to providing evidence in favour of the homogenization or fragmentation hypotheses, which claim new ‘global genres’ are outnumbering, or are outnumbered by, the proliferation of a myriad of new, customized genres.

This special and remarkablebook, The Seventh-day Sabbath and its Redemptive Function in Gods Everlasting Covenant of Grace by A.M. Simataa addresses topical issues in the Bible quite pertinent to the 21st Century Christianity. The author takes a defensive approach of the gospel and brings to the surface some of the least understood teachings of the Bible. Although written from a Seventh-day Adventists perspective, people of differing religious background and persuasions will fi nd this book very instructive. If you have been looking for a book that pains takingly discusses the Gospel seriously and biblically this is the book you have been searching for. Some of the topics featured in the book include: The Truth about the Bible Sabbath The Judgment of the Living Heavenly New Jerusalem; The Marriage Supper of the Lamband the Rapture The Remnant Church in the Parables Mr A.M. Simataa teaches at a High School in Windhoek, Namibia. He likes sharing the Gospel with others and spends some of his spare time witnessing to others. The central role of the Seventh-day Sabbath in the Redemption of our race is the least understood topic in the Bible today. Most believers have even dismissed its relevance to todays Christianity. However, the truth is that the Sabbath is at the heart of Christs work to save human beings in accordance with Gods plan. The Sabbath is so central to the work of atonement that Christ is referred to in the Bible as the Lord of the Sabbath. The issue of the Sabbath will become pertinent as we near the End, and every human being will be required to take a stand in the confl ict involving the Sabbath question. This book will plant your feet on a solid foundation.

Wer bin ich, wenn ich online bin...

Wie beeinflusst sie Körper und Geist? Heute schon gegoogelt? Im Durchschnitt sind die Deutschen etwa zweieinhalb Stunden täglich online. Neuesten Studien zufolge, so zeigt Bestsellerautor und IT-Experte Nicholas Carr, bewirkt bereits eine Onlinestunde am Tag erstaunliche neurologische Prägungen in unserem Gehirn. Wer das Internet nach Informationen, sozialen Kontakten oder Unterhaltung durchforstet, verwendet, anders als beim Buch- oder Zeitunglesen, einen Großteil seiner geistigen Energie auf die Beherrschung des Mediums selbst. Und macht sich um die Inhalte, buchstäblich, keinen Kopf. Die Folge: Im Internetzeitalter lesen wir oberflächlicher, lernen wir schlechter, erinnern wir uns schwächer denn je. Von den Anpassungsleistungen unseres Gehirns profitieren nicht wir, sondern die Konzerne, die mit Klickzahlen Kasse machen. In seinem neuen Buch verbindet Carr, zwanzig Jahre nach Entstehung des World Wide Web, seine medienkritische Bilanz mit einer erhellenden Zeitreise durch Philosophie-, Technologie- und Wissenschaftsgeschichte – von Sokrates’ Skepsis gegenüber der Schrift, dem Menschen als Uhrwerk und Nietzsches Schreibmaschine bis zum User als Gegenstand aktueller Debatten und Studien. Und er vermittelt – jenseits von vagem Kulturpessimismus – anhand greifbarer Untersuchungen und Experimente, wie das Internet unser Denken verändert.

Why are quotations in academic papers taken from only secondary sources problematic?

Responsibility and science in a globalized world

Essay from the year 2016 in the subject Philosophy - Practical (Ethics, Aesthetics, Culture, Nature, Right, ...), grade: 1,3, Leuphana Universität Lüneburg (Wissenschaftsethik), language: English, abstract: To find out whereas quotations in academic articles and/or monographs solely out of secondary and not primary sources are problematic from the perspective of academic ethics in general and business ethics in particular one will first have a closer look on the key terms. An academic article is a scientific text published in a scientific journal and supervised by other scientists. A monograph is a scientific text about a single subject by one author. Sources are distinguished in primary and secondary sources; primary sources are scientific research results which are published at first hand containing. Secondary sources refer to a primary source which was published by another author and not collected by the author himself. For an evaluation of the use of the sources in a business or academic environment ethical standards and moralities are used. Within academic ethics sscientists have the duty to act responsibly and to define moralities for their practice and the way they do research and publish their results. On the other hand the business ethics defines right or wrong behaviour in a business context. To discuss whereas the use of secondary sources is problematic one will analyse the involved parties which are the users of the sources, the author of the primary source, the author of the secondary source and the scientific community. Within all parties involved in the problem there is always a least privileged party according to John Rawls. On the one hand using solely sources could be interpreted as one kind of plagiarism even if the source is cited correctly. Further the readers do not make an own effort into research because she takes the easy way out using solely secondary sources. The readers have to wonder whether it is legitimate to rely on the author of the secondary source that he summarized, analysed etc. the primary source correctly. It would have a massive negative impact on academic and business ethics if the author of the secondary source made a mistake in summarizing, analysing or wrong conclusion drawing. As a result, wrong information would be used for following work in business areas or research in academic areas. On the other hand the access to primary sources may be difficult or even not possible, so the use of a secondary source is the only way to use the information. Further one has to wonder whether it is it legal to intervene to solely use secondary sources as it violates the copyright law.

"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.
