1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scrolls of Testimony is a profoundly moving chronicle of the Holocaust. The author, award-winning Israeli writer Abba Kovner, intended this book as a quasi-liturgical account of the greatest tragedy to befall the Jewish people, and he wrote it in the Jewish tradition of megillot, or scrolls. Taken together, the pages are reminiscent of the Talmud, with the central text surrounded by notes and excerpts of poetry and prose."

Aspects of Lexical Simplification in the Speech and Writing of AdvancedAdult Learners. the Notions of Simplification, Interlanguages andPidgins and Their Relation to Second Language Pedagogy. Actes Du 5EmeColloque De Linguistique Appliquee De Neuchatel (Acts of the FifthNeuchatel Colloquium on Applied Linguistics) by Edward A Levenston( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper discusses the meaning of the term "lexical simplification" in the context of second language acquisition. It is suggested that simplification be viewed as a universal feature of language use which may be manifested in a number of linguistic contexts, including the creation of a learner's interlanguage. It is further suggested that studies of lexical simplification should concentrate on the process rather than its end product. A small-scale empirical investigation was conducted to examine a few selected aspects of the process of lexical simplification, especially those strategies which play a role in the formation of a learner's interlanguage and its subsequent fossilization. Eighty native speakers of Hebrew and 83 learners of Hebrew, on the university level, were given a set of 20 sentences containing missing words which the subjects were asked to provide. The learners were then asked to translate 30 Hebrew words and phrases into their mother tongue. The first instrument sought to measure lexical control in learners as compared to native speakers, while the second was intended to measure learners' ability to recognize lexical items as opposed to their ability to produce them. Results support the hypothesis of lexical simplification in language learners, as well as that of interlanguage fossilization. Test sentences used in the first part of the experiment are appended, in Hebrew with English translation. (Am)
