Lateinische Oralit t

Author: Thomas Haye
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter
ISBN: 3110185695
Release Date: 2005
Genre: Literary Criticism

This book investigates the use and function of Latin as a medium of oral communication in the Middle Ages- the occasions for Latin conversational interaction, the content of learned oral communication, and the way that spoken Latin was taught and learned. Alongside a reconstruction of the standard communicative situations in which Latin was spoken, the book also deals with the norms of oral communication. Historical case studies are presented to show in which contexts and by what speakers Latin was used for oral communication, and what level of Latin competence the speakers commanded.

Reviving Catalan at School

Author: Prof. Joaquim Arnau
Publisher: Multilingual Matters
ISBN: 9781783090273
Release Date: 2013-09-05
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

This book presents a comprehensive picture of languages and schools in Catalan-speaking countries, making much of the information available in English for the first time.

Non dominant Varieties of Pluricentric Languages

Author: Rudolf Muhr
Publisher: Peter Lang Gmbh, Internationaler Verlag Der Wissenschaften
ISBN: 3631620241
Release Date: 2012
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

This volume comprises 28 papers presented at the 1<SUP>st International Conference on Non-Dominant Varieties of Pluricentric Languages in Graz (Austria) in July 2011. The conference was also held in memory of Michael Clyne - eminent linguist, scholar, language enthusiast and advocate of multilingualism who died in October 2010. The volume pays homage to his important contributions in many fields of linguistics and in the theory of pluricentric languages. The conference in Graz was the first international event to document the situation of non-dominant varieties world-wide in order to identify common or diverging features. It provided substantial insights into the codification and in corpus and status planning of non-dominant varieties. The volume deals with 18 languages and 31 different national and other varieties in 29 countries of the world.

Language Migration and Identity

Author: Zane Goebel
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781139490832
Release Date: 2010-07-29
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

While much scholarship has been devoted to the interplay between language, identity and social relationships, we know less about how this plays out interactionally in diverse transient settings. Based on research in Indonesia, this book examines how talk plays an important role in mediating social relations in two urban spaces where linguistic and cultural diversity is the norm and where distinctions between newcomers and old timers changes regularly. How do people who do not share expectations about how they should behave build new expectations through participating in conversation? Starting from a view of language-society dynamics as enregisterment, Zane Goebel uses interactional sociolinguistics and the ethnography of communication to explore how language is used in this contact setting to build and present identities, expectations and social relations. It will be welcomed by researchers and students working in the fields of linguistic anthropology, sociolinguistics, the anthropology of migration and Asian studies.

Sustaining Language Diversity in Europe

Author: G. Williams
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9780230514683
Release Date: 2005-11-10
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

Adopting a post-structuralist approach in analyzing the Euromosaic data about European minority language groups, Glyn Williams argues that different states construct minority language groups and speakers in different ways. This leads to an argument about the nature of democracy and how the current changes in governmental discourses accommodate linguistic and cultural diversity.

Genre: Technology & Engineering

The field of knowledge-based systems (KBS) has expanded enormously during the last years, and many important techniques and tools are currently available. Applications of KBS range from medicine to engineering and aerospace. This book provides a selected set of state-of-the-art contributions that present advanced techniques, tools and applications. These contributions have been prepared by a group of eminent researchers and professionals in the field. The theoretical topics covered include: knowledge acquisition, machine learning, genetic algorithms, knowledge management and processing under uncertainty, conflict detection and resolution, structured knowledge architectures, and natural language-based man-machine communication. The Applications include: Real-time decision support, system fault diagnosis, quality assessment, manufacturing production, robotic assembly, and robotic welding. The reader can save considerable time in searching the scattered literature in the field, and can find here a powerful set of how-to-do issues and results.

Knowledge Discovery for Counterterrorism and Law Enforcement

Author: David Skillicorn
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: 1420074008
Release Date: 2008-11-13
Genre: Computers

Most of the research aimed at counterterrorism, fraud detection, or other forensic applications assumes that this is a specialized application domain for mainstream knowledge discovery. Unfortunately, knowledge discovery changes completely when the datasets being used have been manipulated in order to conceal some underlying activity. Knowledge Discovery for Counterterrorism and Law Enforcement operates from the premise that detection algorithms must be rethought to be effective in this domain, and presents a new approach based on cutting-edge analysis for use in adversarial settings. Reveals How Criminals Conceal Information This volume focuses on four main forms of knowledge discovery: prediction, clustering, relationship discovery, and textual analysis. For each of these application areas, the author discusses opportunities for concealment that are available to criminals and reveals some of the tactics that can aid in detecting them. He reviews what is known about the different technologies for each area and evaluates their effectiveness. The book also supplies a preview of technologies currently under development and describes how they will fit in to existing approaches to knowledge discovery. Provides Proactive Formulas for Staying One Step Ahead of Adversaries While all knowledge-discovery systems are susceptible to manipulation, designers and users of algorithmic systems who are armed with the knowledge of these subversive tactics are better able to create systems to avoid these vulnerabilities. This book delineates an effective process for integrating knowledge-discovery tools, provides a unique understanding of the limits of the technology, and contains a clear presentation of the upsides and pitfalls of data collection. It is a powerful weapon in the arsenal of anyone confronting the increasingly sophisticated tactics employed by lawbreakers and other unsavory individuals.

Inspired by today's world of increasingly available knowledge and rapidly changing access to it, this book examines the challenges of decision making when knowledge expands faster than we can learn, analyzes how knowledge changes shape depending on who owns it, and reveals how knowledge disappears in its own volatility. Offering a truly comprehensive exploration of the topic, this guide also instructs how to generate, select, measure, manage, network, protect, sell, and respect knowledge.
