Bilingualism across the lifespan : factors moderating language proficiency / edited by Elena Nicoladis, Simona Montanari. - Berlin : De Gruyter Mouton ; Washington (D.C.) : American Psychological Association, c2018

This book pioneers the study of bilingualism across the lifespan and in all its diverse forms. In framing the newest research within a lifespan perspective, the editors highlight the importance of considering an individual's age in researching how bilingualism affects language acquisition and cognitive development. A key theme is the variability among bilinguals, which may be due to a host of individual and sociocultural factors, including the degree to which bilingualism is valued within a particular context.Thus, this book is a call for language researchers, psychologists, and educators to pursue a better understanding of bilingualism in our increasingly global society.

Cultura cinese : segno, scrittura e civiltà / Alessandra C.Lavagnino, Silvia Pozzi. - Roma : Carocci, 2013

Avvicinarsi al mondo cinese e scoprire il patrimonio della sua tradizione. Ripercorrere l'evoluzione di una civiltà millenaria, squarciando il velo dell'"altro da noi". Per dipanare il groviglio di saperi lontani e di semplificazioni pronte all'uso attraverso cui la Cina ci appare abitualmente, il volume propone di seguire il filo prezioso della sua scrittura. I caratteri cinesi costituiscono infatti la materia viva con cui il tessuto culturale che abbiamo di fronte è stato pazientemente costruito. Il segno scritto, magico e pragmatico al contempo, dà forma a un ricchissimo pensiero poetico, storico, filosofico e religioso, e arriva a impregnare persino la cultura materiale del popolo. Il libro costituisce pertanto un itinerario che attraversa i grandi generi e le forme della creazione letteraria e artistica, elementi fondanti dell'identità culturale della Cina di ieri e di oggi.

Event structure metaphors through the body : translation from English to American sign language / Daniel R. Roush. - Amsterdam ; Philadelphia : Benjamin, 2018

How do the experiences of people who have different bodies (deaf versus hearing) shape their thoughts and metaphors? Do different linguistic modes of expression (signed versus spoken) have a shaping force as well? This book investigates the metaphorical production of culturally-Deaf translators who work from English to American Sign Language (ASL). It describes how Event Structure Metaphors are handled across languages of two different modalities. Through the use of corpus-based evidence, several specific questions are addressed: are the main branches of Event Structure Metaphors – the Location and Object branches – exhibited in ASL? Are these two branches adequate to explain the event-related linguistic metaphors identified in the translation corpus? To what extent do translators maintain, shift, add, and omit expressions of these metaphors? While answering these specific questions, this book makes a significant elaboration to the two-branch theory of Event Structure Metaphors.

Identity and dialect performance : a study of communities and dialects / editad by Reem Bassiouney. - London ; New York : Routledge, 2018

Identity and Dialect Performance discusses the relationship between identity and dialects. It starts from the assumption that the use of dialect is not just a product of social and demographic factors, but can also be an intentional performance of identity. Dialect performance is related to identity construction and in a highly globalised world, the linguistic repertoire has increased rapidly, thereby changing our conventional assumptions about dialects and their usage.The key outstanding feature of this particular book is that it spans an extensive range of communities and dialects; Italy, Hong Kong, Morocco, Egypt, Syria, Japan, Germany, The Sudan, The Netherlands, Nigeria, Spain, US, UK, French Guiana, Colombia,and Libya.
