Lingua franca communication by Karlfried Knapp( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lingua francas are languages used for communication between individuals for whom they are not the first language. Based on empirical work throughout, the individual contributions to this volume address lingua franca communication from sociolinguistic as well as from conversation analytic perspectives, or place this form of communication within the wider context of foreign language teaching. The volume as a whole attempts to broaden the traditional view of lingua francas as languages employed by non-native speakers to serve specific, restricted communicative purposes only. Instead, it is demonstrated that lingua francas have gained a number of varied functions, and that they are employed by a heterogeneous group of speakers for whom they do not always have the same status of a second or foreign language. The papers reveal intriguing similarities in form across different lingua francas, but also point at significant differences. As a result, it is proposed that approaches to teach lingua francas as such need to be developed on the basis of empirical evidence

Lehrsequenzen für den Zweitsprachenerwerb : e. komparatives Experiment by Karlfried Knapp( Book )

9 editions published in 1980 in German and Undetermined and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In diesem Buch berichte ich von einem komparativen Experiment zur Lernmate rialkonstruktion, das ich an Schulen in den Kreisen Konstanz, Paderborn und Detmold durchfUhren konnte. Ohne die geduldige, manchmal auch begei sterte und begeisternde Mitarbeit der SchUler, die UnterstUtzung ihrer Leh rer und das Verstandnis der Schulleiter der Realschulen in Konstanz, Radolf zell, Singen, Gottmadingen, SchloB Neuhaus und Detmold ware diese Arbeit unmoglich gewesen. Profitiert habe ich bei meinem Vorhaben auch von Anregungen, Ratschlagen und Kritik von Freunden und Kollegen, vor allem von Annelie Knapp-Potthoff, Gotz Wienold, Aldo di Luzio und Eberhard Pause. Ihnen allen gilt mein Dank, ebenso auch Karl-Heinz Kischkl, der mir die Computerprogramme schrieb, so wie Armin von Stechow und Peter Hartmann fUr die Aufnahme meines Buches in diese Reihe. Das Experiment wurde im FrUhjahr 1975 durchgefUhrt, das Manuskript im FrUh jahr 1977 abgeschlossen. Spatere Literatur konnte nur in Ausnahmefallen bei der Drucklegung noch berUcksichtigt werden.

Handbook of second language assessment by Dina Tsagari( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Second language assessment is ubiquitous. It has found its way from education into questions about access to professions and migration. This volume focuses on the main debates and research advances in second language assessment in the last fifty years or so, showing the influence of linguistics, politics, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and psychometrics. There are four parts which, when taken together, address the principles and practices of second language assessment while considering its impact on society. Read separately, each part addresses a different aspect of the field. Part I deals with the conceptual foundations of second language assessment with chapters on the purposes of assessment, and standards and frameworks, as well as matters of scoring, quality assurance, and test validation. Part II addresses the theory and practice of assessing different second language skills including aspects like intercultural competence and fluency. Part III examines the challenges and opportunities of second language assessment in a range of contexts. In addition to chapters on second language assessment on a national scale, there are chapters on learning-oriented assessment, as well as the uses of second language assessment in the workplace and for migration. Part IV examines a selection of important issues in the field that deserve attention. These include the alignment of language examinations to external frameworks, the increasing use of technology to both deliver and score second language tests, the responsibilities associated with assessing test takers with special needs, the concept of 'voice' in second language assessment, and assessment literacy for teachers and other test and score users

Handbook of second and foreign language writing by Rosa Manchón( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Handbook of Second and Foreign Language Writing is an authoritative reference compendium of the theory and research on second and foreign language writing that can be of value to researchers, professionals, and graduate students. It is intended both as a retrospective critical reflection that can situate research on L2 writing in its historical context and provide a state of the art view of past achievements, and as a prospective critical analysis of what lies ahead in terms of theory, research, and applications. Accordingly, the Handbook aims to provide (i) foundational information on the emergence and subsequent evolution of the field, (ii) state-of-the-art surveys of available theoretical and research (basic and applied) insights, (iii) overviews of research methods in L2 writing research, (iv) critical reflections on future developments, and (iv) explorations of existing and emerging disciplinary interfaces with other fields of inquiry
Sprachmitteln : zur Erforschung des Dolmetschens im Alltag by Karlfried Knapp( Book )

4 editions published in 1986 in German and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English in Europe today : sociocultural and educational perspectives( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume discusses several facets of English in today's multilingual Europe. It emphasizes the interdependence between cultures, languages and situations that influence its use. This interdependence is particularly relevant to European settings where English is being learned as a second language. Such learning situations constitute the core focus of the book. The volume is unique in bringing together empirical studies examining factors that promote the learning of English in Europe. Rather than assuming that English is a threat to linguistic diversity and cultural independence, these studies discuss psycholinguistic factors such as the input, and sociolinguistic factors such as the type of English that is targeted in learning. The contributing authors are well-established specialists who have worked on multilingualism, English as a Lingua Franca and second language acquisition. The book will be of interest to applied linguists, sociolinguists and teachers of English as a foreign language
Handbooks of applied linguistics : communication competence, language and communication problems, practical solutions( )

in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Handbooks of Applied Linguistics series is based on an understanding of Applied Linguistics as field of academic enquiry that deals with the theoretical and empirical investigation of real world problems in which language and communication are a central issue. Applied Linguistics is not interpreted as a reduction of (theoretical) linguistics, nor as simply applying linguistic theories and methodologies. Rather, the assumption is that Applied Linguistics is a problem-oriented and problem-solving activity. As such, it is actively involved in the development of innovative theoretical approaches as well as practical solutions, drawing on insights from linguistics, but also from neighbouring disciplines such as psychology, anthropology, sociology, pedagogy, computer science, etc
Strategies in translation a comparison of the Helen Lowe-Porter and David Luke translations of Thomas Mann's Tonio Kröger, Tristan and Der Tod in Venedig within the context of contemporary translation theory by John R. M Gledhill( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Manns drei Geschichten Tonio Kröger, Tristan und Der Tod in Venedig werden mit deren Übersetzungen von Helen Lowe-Porter und David Luke verglichen. Aus dem Vergleich lässt sich feststellen, dass Lowe-Porters Übersetzungen gravierende Fehler aufzeigen, während die von Luke im Grunde genommen zuverlässig sind. Auch die Lukeschen Übersetzungen scheitern aber, wenn sie mit den poetischen, philosophischen und humoristischen Aspekten Thomas Manns Prosa konfrontiert sind. Anhand vieler Beispiele werden alternative literarische Übersetzungsstrategien diskutiert, die zu einer neuen Übersetzungstheorie führen: dem strategischen Ansatz. Auf Wittgensteins Sprachspieltheorie basierend wird der Begriff Treue (wortgetreu) neu definiert. Bei diesem Ansatz spielt die Übersetzung dasselbe Sprachspiel wie bei dem Ausgangstext
