Cultures and Languages in Transition

by Margit Grieb, Yves-Antoine Clemmen, and Will Lehman


The essays in this anthology probe and comment on the "space/time/issue between" in aesthetic or linguistic productions in a variety of cultures. For over three decades the Southeast Conference on Foreign Languages, Literatures, and Film (SCFLLF), which convenes biennially, has been and continues to be a showcase for scholarship in the Humanities with a special emphasis on non-English language area studies. In 2018, at the 23rd SCFLLF, fifty-three national and international scholars presented their research on linguistics, literature, film, culture, and language pedagogy. The essays we selected to showcase all probe and comment on the “space/time/issue between” in aesthetic or linguistic productions in a variety of cultures. We have organized these contributions in three parts entitled...

Spanish Abbreviations 1500-1700

by A. Roberta Carlin


Puzzle Pieces of the Past: Spanish Abbreviations 1500-1700 is a contextual presentation of hundreds of abbreviations found in the handwritten documents of the Spanish colonial period. Abbreviation examples include but are not limited to abreviaturas eclesiásticas, nexos, por signos convenciales, superposición, por enclace, por apócope, síncopa y por sigla. All the abbreviations and phrases were scanned from photocopies of extant Spanish documents written between 1500 and 1700 and are presented in the original handwriting. Each abbreviation is presented with a phrase showing context and source reference. Together with each abbreviation and phrase is a printed display of the letters represented, the full spelling of the word or words in early modern Spanish, and the current Spanish ...

by Sarah McNicol (editor)


Forbidden Fruit: The Censorship of Literature and Information for Young People was a two day conference held in Southport, UK in June 2008. This collection of papers from the conference will be of interest to teachers, school and public librarians, publishers, and other professionals involved in the provision of literature and information resources for young people, as well as to researchers and students. The proceedings draw together some of the latest research in this area from a number of fields, including librarianship, education, literature, and linguistics. The topics covered include translations and adaptations, pre-censorship by authors, publishers and editors, LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and trans) materials, and the views of young people themselves. The papers included in t...

A Model for the Linguistic Specification and the Computational Management of Man-Machine Dialogues Following Commands Issued in Spoken Natural Language

Un modelo para la especificación lingüística y la gestión computacional de diálogos hombre-máquina mediante instrucciones expresadas en lenguaje natural

by Gabriela Fernández-Díaz


This thesis dissertation, written in Spanish, presents a new model for the linguistic specification and the computational management of man-machine dialogues following commands issued in spoken natural language. Our aim is to design and implement a conversational system for the automatic telephone task scenario, namely Delfos. Voice dialing represents a current trend in research, the purpose of which is to provide functional systems for products ranging from domestic appliances such as a video or a washing machine to more sophisticated environments such as a complete house, with an interface in spoken natural language. Our system, Delfos, represents a challenge for the fields of Language Engineering and Computational Linguistics as it implies the integration of different technologies such...

The 'Other's' Gaze

The Discursive Construction of Journalists' Professional Identity across Italy and the U.S.

by Davide Mazzi


The book combines the tools of corpus linguistics and discourse analysis in the attempt to investigate the discursive construction of professional identity on the part of journalists from Italy and the United States of America. More specifically, the ultimate objective of the study is to examine the discursive resources enabling journalists to construct their professional persona as experts exerting their authority in a community of practice, while they gaze at the 'other'. The analysis thus focuses on news articles from quality papers from Italy and the United States where each other's country is represented. With this primary aim in mind, the volume addresses the following leading questions: • How is the ‘other’ (Italy in the US and the US in Italy) represented? • How do jour...

Contemporary Approaches to World Languages and Cultures

Selected Proceedings of the 21st Southeast Conference on Foreign Languages, Literatures, and Film

by Margit Grieb, Will Lehman, and Yves-Antoine Clemmen (editors)


The biennial Southeast Conference on Foreign Languages, Literatures, and Film (SCFLLF), supported by a generous grant from the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of South Florida and the administrative support of the USF Department of World Languages, convened for the 21st time on February 21-22, 2014. The conference, which has been held in various locations throughout Florida since 1983, featured 60 speakers from the US and abroad who shared their research on various topics related to literature, film, culture, language learning, and linguistics. The conference did not feature a specific theme in order to encourage the sharing of a wide array of topics, interests, investigations, and formats that stimulate productive conversations and discussions among divergent fields, langua...

Classifiers in Kam-Tai Languages

A Cognitive and Cultural Perspective

by Tian-Qiao Lu


This monograph describes and analyzes the syntax of classifiers and cultural taxonomy in more than 20 major languages in southern China and Southeast Asia. It provides comprehensive and in-depth data for professional linguists and rudimental knowledge for postgraduate or undergraduate majors or minors engaged in linguistics. Readers will learn how nouns are categorized in syntax and what cultural factors are involved in such a classification process. This is the first book on Kam-Tai classifiers from both syntactic and sociocultural aspects.

We Will Not Be Stopped

Evangelical Persecution, Catholicism and Zapatismo in Chiapas, Mexico

by Arthur Bonner


The power of the Bible to transform lives and societies has seldom been demonstrated more vividly than in Chiapas in southern Mexico. Beginning in the early 1940s, young men and women of the Summer Institute of Linguistics devised written scripts and then translated the Bible into the languages of the most neglected and most oppressed of indigenous peoples: the Tzeltals, Tzotzils, Chols and Tojolabals. A major part of this book is the narrations of indigenous people who experienced the Bible's power to heal bodies and create loving families. They became apostles, seeding new congregations. They refused to accept what they saw as idols made by human hands and rejected the cults of village saints. For this, they were, like the first Christians, persecuted and dr...

by Michael A. Stokes


This book presents a new model of vowel perception and production derived from visual cues identified in waveform displays. In addition to describing waveform displays of vowels beyond previous descriptions, included in the book are descriptions of experimental evidence supporting near 100% vowel identification accuracy across 20 male talkers using the concepts in the model. The book content will be of interest to several academic fields including Cognitive Science, Psychology, Linguistics, Speech and Hearing, Language Acquisition, Neurolinguistics, Phonetics, and areas within Physics and Mathematics. Beyond these academic fields, the new model of vowel perception presented here could possibly be used to improve accuracy and speed within existing speech recognition systems, or it could be ...

A Paleographic Guide to Spanish Abbreviations 1500-1700

Una Guía Paleográfica de Abbreviaturas Españolas 1500-1700

by A. Roberta Carlin


A Paleographic Guide to Spanish Abbreviations 1500-1700 is a powerful tool for correctly identifying hundreds of abbreviations found in the hand written documents of the Spanish colonial period. The Guide is concise, easy to use and of a very manageable size. All of the abbreviations were scanned from photo copies of extant Spanish documents written between the years 1500 and 1700 and are presented in their original handwriting. Together with each abbreviation is a printed display of the letters represented, the full spelling of the word or words in early modern Spanish and the current Spanish spelling. Over one thousand abbreviations from a wide variety of sources demonstrate the various handwriting styles of the period. The format of the Guide was planned to assist a variety of u...
