Language matters : a guide to everyday questions about language by Donna Jo Napoli( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is Ebonics really a dialect or simply bad English? Do women and men speak differently? Will computers ever really learn human language? Does offensive language harm children? These are only a few of the issues surrounding language that crop up every day. Most of us have very definite opinions on these questions one way or another. Yet as linguists Donna Jo Napoli and Vera Lee-Schoenfeld point out in this short and thoroughly readable volume, many of our most deeply held ideas about the nature of language and its role in our lives are either misconceived or influenced by myths and stereotypes" "Language Matters provides a highly informative tour of the world of language, examining these and other vexing and controversial language-related questions. Throughout, Napoli and Lee-Schoenfeld encourage and lead the reader to use common sense and everyday experience rather than preconceived notions or technical linguistic expertise. Both their questions and their conclusions are surprising, sometimes provocative, and always entertaining." "This thoroughly revised second edition updates the book with a new coauthor and includes new chapters on language and power, language extinction, and what it is linguists actually do. Language Matters is sure to engage both general readers and students of language and linguistics at any level."--Jacket
Beyond coherence : the syntax of opacity in German by Vera Lee-Schoenfeld( Book )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and German and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The overarching theme of this volume is one of the central concerns of syntactic theory: How local is syntax, and what are the measures of syntactic locality? It is argued here that movement and anaphoric relations are governed by a unified concept of locality: the phase. On an empirical level, Beyond Coherence brings together three strands of research on German syntax: 'coherence', the study of (reduced) infinitive constructions; the possessor dative construction, with a dative nominal playing the dual role of possessor and affectee; and binding, the distribution of anaphors and pronominals

The impact of EFL teacher motivational strategies on student motivation to learn english in Costa Rica by Madeline Asher Jones( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper explores the relationship between EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teacher motivational strategies and student motivation. Previous research has shown a positive relationship between EFL student motivation and student acquisition of the target language; however, little work has been done to explore what EFL teachers can do to generate, foster, and maintain the motivation of their students. The present study uses the MOLT scheme (as developed by Guilloteaux and Dornyei, 2008) in middle and high school classrooms in Costa Rica. Student self-reported questionnaire data was compared to student and teacher classroom observations. The study found strong positive correlations between student motivation and all aspects of the teacher's motivational practice, except "teacher discourse," suggesting that a teacher who speaks too frequently in the EFL classroom may impede student motivation
