The linguists( Visual )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[The film] joins David Harrison and Gregory Anderson, scientists racing to document languages on the verge of extinction. In Siberia, India and Bolivia, David and Greg's resolve is tested by the very forces stifling languages: institutionalized racism and violent economic unrest. The scientists must overcome their own fears and preconceived notions to draw speakers from decades of silence. Their journey takes them deep into the heart of the cultures, knowledge, and communities at stake"--Container
Second language acquisition & foreign language teaching by Rosario C Gingras( Book )

8 editions published between 1978 and 1996 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume presents two papers synthesizing current research in second-language acquisition and reactions to these papers from the point of view of researchers in foreign language learning. The introduction by Rosario Gingras provides an overview of the research in second-language acquisition as it applies to foreign language teaching. A distinction between "second language" and "foreign language" is proposed: in a second-language context, the target language is spoken by the community outside the classroom; in a foreign language context, the target language is generally limited to classroom study. The following papers appear in the collection: (1) "The Monitor Model for Second-Language Acquisition," by S. Krashen; (2) "The Acculturation Model for Second-Language Acquisition," J.H. Schumann; (3) "The Monitor Model and Monitoring in Foreign Language Speech Communication," by K. Sajavaara; (4) "Implications of Research on Adult Second-Language Acquisition for Teaching Foreign Languages to Children," by M. Saville-Troike; (5) "Implications of Current Research on Second-Language Acquisition for the Teaching of Foreign Languages in the United States," by A. Valdman; and (6) "Second-Language Acquisition and Foreign Language Teaching," by R. Gingras. A comprehensive bibliography concludes the volume. (Amh)

The tape recordings used in this study are available from the center for applied linguistics and are free, spontaneous conversations recorded in a special "sound studio" installed in a low-income neighborhood of washington. The passages selected from the recordings for transcription are conversations between members of a family group and neighborhood children. A modified standard orthography was used for the transcription with prosodic aspects transcribed in a modified trager-smith system. The language data contained in these texts will serve as the basis for further linguistic and anthropological studies. Copies of this book are also available for $4.00 from the center for applied linguistics, 1717 massachusetts avenue, N.W., washington, D.C., 20036. (jd)
