Why is it that after we "fall in love," so many of us get hurt? Because we "fell!" But love feels light, energizing! So it would be more fitting to say "I've ascended in love!" and not set ourselves up for a fall.Johnston will have you laughing out loud as you learn the unconscious ways we disempower ourselves with the words and phrases we've been taught to use. You can even write yourself an emancipation proclamation when you finish reading this book!

Between The Languages Code Switching In Bilingual Communication

This book is about the use of two languages in everyday life. Bilingualism is a facet of nearly every country in the world and code-switching is a widespread characteristic of bilingual speech. An obvious and at the same time interesting aspect is that bilinguals will, of course, stay within one language when talking to monolinguals. However, when talking to other bilinguals, they will probably use both languages. Thus, in bilingual conversations, they often switch from one language to another and frequently even within an utterance. Such kinds of switches call for a special competence of the two languages involved. But how well the bilinguals have to know each of the languages is a justifiable question. These switches are not arbitrary since they may depend on the situation of the conversation, the topic of the conversation, the emotional aspects involved, the language preference of the speaker and the need to express the own identity. The goal of this book is to look in detail at code-switching in bilingual communication with the help of the present study on Russian-German bilinguals.

Code Choice In The Language Classroom

Author : Prof. Glenn S. Levine

Code Choice in the Language Classroom argues that the foreign language classroom is and should be regarded as a multilingual community of practice rather than as a perpetually deficient imitator of an exclusive second-language environment. From a sociocultural and ecological perspective, Levine guides the reader through a theoretical, empirical, and pedagogical treatment of the important roles of the first language, and of code-switching practices, in the language classroom. Intended for SLA researchers, language teachers, language program directors, and graduate students of foreign languages and literatures, the book develops a framework for thinking about all aspects of code choice in the language classroom and offers concrete proposals for designing and carrying out instruction in a multilingual classroom community of practice.

How does writing relate to speech? What impact does it have on social organisation and development? How do unwritten languages differ from those that have a written form and tradition? This book is a general account of the place of writing in society. Drawing on contemporary and historical examples, from clay tablets to touchscreen displays, the book explores the functions of writing and written language, analysing its consequences for language, society, economy and politics. It examines the social causes of illiteracy, demonstrating that institutions of central importance to modern society are built upon writing and written texts, and are characterised by specific forms of communication. It explores the social dimensions of spelling and writing reform, as well as of digital literacy, a new mode of expression and communication posing novel challenges to the student of language in society.

Wat de boekdrukkunst gedaan heeft voor het woord, dat heeft de camera gedaan voor het beeld. Het beeld uit de camera is in meer dan één opzicht een concurrent geworden van het woord. Niet omdat de beeldmedia het einde schijnen in te luiden van een leescultuur, maar omdat fotografie, film, televisie en video ons op een heel andere manier aanspreken dan boek en blad. Onderwerp van dit essay is dan ook niet de inhoud van de beeldmedia, maar de invloed die de vorm van het mediale beeld uitoefent op ons kijken en voelen, onze verbeelding en ons denken.

This book can be downloaded as a PDF file from here. I started writing this topic on an experimental basis in UkResident com around 2005. There were a lot of unconnected strings of thoughts in my mind, which did connect to an idea that there is some kind of inner code links that exist behind our physical reality. Moreover, I had been making solitary researches and observations on the codes in languages, right since my childhood. This also seemed to connect heavily with the physical world. If fact, in my book: March of the Evil Empires; English versus the Feudal Languages I did hint at this connection in the last chapter. Later my thought processes went on to connect even to an idea that human body and life processes were all connected to some codes. In later years, I was to observe the efficacy of homeopathy, which I discerned as the medical side of this understanding. For, I had more or less predicted in my mind that if the human body was controlled and designed by a software code, then there should be a medical system that can rectify human body errors through a software approach. I am making my earlier writings into a book. This is that book. However, this book is not the final word on the subject. For, a few years back I was to write my first serious book on the subject of the codes of Reality: Codes of Reality! What is Language? However, if you were to go through this book, which you are now reading, you will see the route through which my thought process developed. These writings are no longer visible in UkResident site, for it changed direction and became an immigration site with business interests in filling Britain with immigrants. I feel that the management has changed. Not sure. However, these writings have been reposted in my own Ved’s Writings Pages. Yet, over the years, many persons have read my writings from both sites. No one has cared to comment on them or even to expand the ideas. Currently I do get a feeling that at least some persons have endeavoured to write these ideas as their own. Of this also, I am not sure. It is just a gut feeling that I get when I do some online searches. Yet, it is possible that others also may have come up with these ideas on their own. The only issue is that my thought process developed by seeing the differing ways in which the codes in the different kinds of languages reacted with the reality codes. For this my understandings on feudal language codes versus the codes in English was required. Currently my information on this theme is much more developed. I have done experiments and have had observations that do confirm that human mind can connect to other minds. That there is something of the extraordinary and powerful in sexual exhilaration. That not only sexual energy, but even such things as addictions and such, are connected to powerful value changes in certain life software codes. That just by means of achieving corrections or changes to these values, human energy levels can be increased. It is quite possible to use mind to stimulate sexual desire in others. Or at least make them feel that an attempt at seduction by means of mental code work is being done.
