Captioned Media in Foreign Language Learning and Teaching

Author: Robert Vanderplank

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

This book brings together current thinking on informal language learning and the findings of over 30 years of research on captions (same language subtitles for the deaf and hard-of-hearing) to present a new model of language learning from captioned viewing and a future roadmap for research and practice in this field. Language learners may have normal hearing but they are ‘hard-of-listening’ and find it difficult to follow the rapid or unclear speech in many films and TV programmes. Vanderplank considers whether watching with captions not only enables learners to understand and enjoy foreign language television and films but also helps them to improve their foreign language skills. Captioned Media in Foreign Language Learning and Teaching will be of interest to students and researchers involved in second language acquisition teaching and research, as well as practising language teachers and teacher trainers.

Gender in Film and the Media

Authored by an international team of academics, Gender in Film and the Media responds to continuing debates about representation and gender in cinema and other media, with a particular concentration on the ways in which they may relate to the Central European context since 1989. The emphasis of these essays, on the intersections between social and cultural formations and practices of gender, represents an attempt to move beyond the abstractions of the founding texts in this field, and to ground theoretical reflection in close textual and contextual analysis. This book thus also represents the expansion of cultural exchange between East and West since 1989, which has created new and challenging opportunities to rethink the imaging of gender in national and international frameworks.

LY Or Zero Suffix?

Author: Lise Opdahl

View: 559

A study in linguistic variation, this work deals with those much discussed but little researched adverbs which in present-day English sometimes occur with the suffix -ly and sometimes not, e.g. direct/directly and wrong/wrongly. The forms studied are 20 de-adjectival adverbial pairs which occur fairly regularly as verb modifiers without displaying well-established and clear semantic differences between the two forms. The present work (in two volumes) first investigates which factors have been mentioned previously as explanatory for the choice of form and then tests to what extent these factors seem to apply. Both British and American material is analysed, collected from machine-readable corpora and through elicitation. The results show, contrary to some claims, that no one parameter seems to influence the choice of form and that the adverbial lexemes vary considerably in their profiles in this respect. The lexemes can be grouped in various ways, which may be useful e. g. in the teaching of English. Some findings indicate instability, suggesting potential language change.

Learner Autonomy in Language Learning

Author: Sara Cotterall

Publisher: Peter Lang Pub Incorporated

ISBN:

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 184

View: 990

This book is a collection of papers that explores the notion of learner autonomy and the problem of helping language learners to manage their learning effectively. The first part of the book deals with issues of definition: what is the cognitive base for autonomous learning behaviour and how is this mediated by social and cultural expectations of a learner's role? The second part reports on experiences of working with learners and with teachers to promote learner autonomy. In working with learners, the focus is on language learning strategies and how strategic learning might be developed through strategy training, materials design, reflection and counselling. In working with teachers, the focus is on bringing about change in traditional perspectives on the roles of learners and teachers within education systems.
