The emergence of the modern language sciences : studies on the transition from historical-comparative to structural linguistics in honour of E.F.K. Koerner by Sheila M Embleton( Book )

19 editions published in 1999 in English and Spanish and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Alongside considerable continuity, 20th-century diachronic linguistics has seen substantial shifts in outlook and procedure from the 19th-century paradigm. Our understanding of what is really new and what is recycled owes a great debt to E.F.K. Koerner's minutely researched interpretations of the work of the field's founders and key transitional figures. At the cusp of the 21st century, some of the best known scholars in the field explore how these methodological shifts have been and continue to be played out in historical Romance, Germanic and Indo-European linguistics, as well as in work o

The emergence of the modern language sciences : studies on the transition from historical-comparative to structural linguistics in honour of E.F.K. Koerner by Sheila M Embleton( Book )

16 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although it is widely thought that structural linguistics began abruptly with the publication of Saussure's 'revolutionary' Course in General Linguistics, the work of E.F.K. Koerner has demonstrated that Saussure, for all his originality, remained true to the basic tenets of his 19th-century predecessors. In this volume, the development of modern linguistics before, during and after Saussure is traced in 20 studies honouring the scholar who has done more than anyone else to professionalize linguistic historiography during the last quarter century. Among the wide range of topics covered are

Comparing international student and institutional objectives and institutional objectives : Implications for institutional strategy by Rod Skinkle( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalisation of higher education is critical to achieving many of higher education's highest goals. This paper analyses the results of a survey of over 5000 Indian private high-school students (Skinkle and Embleton, 2011) revealing that 21% are seriously considering international education (IE). Those considering IE often stated their motivations as including improving leadership skills, meeting new people and giving back to society. There is however little research concerning the goals (and practices) of higher education institutions in relation to the aspirations of IE students. A primary motivation for many institutions is financial. The authors integrate the results of the survey with an empirical study of 65 Canadian professorial and administrative leaders at both colleges and universities, from 54 diverse institutions across Canada, to provide critical analyses of perceived benefits, threats and desired outcomes of IE in higher education. Strategic imperatives for IE management are presented

Comments at Symposium "Against Multilateral Comparisons." by Sheila M Embleton( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The comments presented here were made after the presentation of four papers and commentary by two other symposium participants. They address issues in language comparison and classification. First, comments are made on the papers ("An African Test Case in Comparative Methodology,""The Mathematics of Multilateral Comparison,""Testing a Basic Evaluation Metric," and "Multilateral Comparison and Linguistic Geography"), then more general comments are made on the utility of statistical tests, and of mathematical or probabilistic techniques in general, in linguistics. Issues discussed include sampling, true independence of variables, validity of underlying assumptions, inter-group differences, and error types associated with null hypotheses. Following this, factors supporting use of statistical methods are reviewed. A number of quotations and pieces of information seen as useful in a discussion of these issues is appended to the text. Contains six references. (Mse)
