Détails: This unique text draws on the tools of modern linguistics to help the student acquire an effective understanding of learned, specialized, and scientific vocabulary. English Vocabulary Elements (EVE) helps develop familiarity with over 350 Latin and Greek word elements in English, and shows how these roots are the building blocks within thousands of different words. Along the way the authors introduce and illustrate many of the fundamental concepts of linguistics. Offering a thorough approach to the expansion of vocabulary, EVE is an invaluable resource that provides students a deeper understanding of the language. This book will be useful to upper level high school students, undergraduates in English, Linguistics, and Classics departments, ESL students, and anyone interested in building vocabulary skills. This edition is refined and thoroughly updated. It includes updated cultural references, and the authors have revised and improved the pedagogy based on classroom experience. In particular they account for variations in pronunciation among students; clarify when historical details are important or peripheral; and improve the many examples and exercises that form the core of the book.

Détails: Fascination with words-their meanings, origins, pronunciation, usages-is something most of us experience at some point. This book aims both to fuel and to satisfy that fascination. The book is based on a course that each of the authors helped to develop at Stanford University over the past twenty years. The aim of the course was to help students master English vocabulary and to provide the fundamentals for pursuing an interest in English words. To this end, the book offers a detailed but introductory survey of the developments that have given English a uniquely rich vocabulary, taking into account both the changing structure of the language and the historical events that shaped the language as a whole. Anyone who believes that changes in the language are robbing it of its elegance or expressive power will see this view challenged by the developments described here. At the core of the book are a set of several hundred vocabulary elements that English borrowed, directly or indirectly, over the past fifteen hundred years, from Latin and Greek. These elements, introduced gradually chapter by chapter, provide a key to understanding the structure and meaning of much of the learned vocabulary of the language. The chapters trace the history and structure of English words from the sixth century onward, laying out the major influences that are still observable in our vocabulary today. Each chapter ends with a large number of exercises. These offer many different types of practice with the material in the text, making it possible to tailor the work to different sets of needs and interests. Upon finishing this textbook, students will be able to penetrate the structure of an enormous portion of the vocabulary of English, with or without the help of a dictionary, and to understand better how an individual word fits into the system of the language. This second edition incorporates improved and refined text as well as examples and exercises, with thorough revision of pedagogy as a result of their significant classroom-based expertise. The new edition also updates cultural references, accounts for variations in pronunciation among students, and clarifies when historical details are important or peripheral.

Détails: Winner of the Newbery Medal and the National Book Award! This #1 New York Times bestselling, modern classic in which boys are forced to dig holes day in and day out is now available with a splashy new look. Stanley Yelnats is under a curse. A curse that began with his no-good-dirty-rotten-pig-stealing-great-great-grandfather and has since followed generations of Yelnatses. Now Stanley has been unjustly sent to a boys’ detention center, Camp Green Lake, where the boys build character by spending all day, every day digging holes exactly five feet wide and five feet deep. There is no lake at Camp Green Lake. But there are an awful lot of holes. It doesn’t take long for Stanley to realize there’s more than character improvement going on at Camp Green Lake. The boys are digging holes because the warden is looking for something. But what could be buried under a dried-up lake? Stanley tries to dig up the truth in this inventive and darkly humorous tale of crime and punishment—and redemption. Includes a double bonus: an excerpt from Small Steps, the follow-up to Holes, as well as an excerpt from Louis Sachar’s new middle-grade novel, Fuzzy Mud.

Détails: How do we find the right word for the job? Where does that word come from? Why do we spell it like that? And how do we know what it means? Words are all around us - we use them every day to communicate our joys, fears, hopes, opinions, wishes and demands - but we don't often think about them too deeply. In this highly accessible introduction to English words, the reader will discover what the study of words can tell them about the extraordinary richness and complexity of our daily vocabulary and about the nature of language in general. Assuming no prior knowledge of linguistics, the book covers a wide range of topics, including the structure of words, the meaning of words, how their spelling relates to pronunciation, how new words are manufactured or imported from other languages, and how the meaning of words changes with the passage of time. It also investigates how the mind deals with words by highlighting the amazing intellectual feat performed routinely when the right word is retrieved from the mental dictionary. This revised and expanded second edition brings the study of words right up to date with coverage of text messaging and email and includes new material on psycholinguistics and word meaning. With lively examples from a range of sources - encompassing poetry, jokes, journalism, advertising and clichés - and including practical exercises and a fully comprehensive glossary, English Words is an entertaining introduction to the study of words and will be of interest to anyone who uses them.

Détails: As a citizen of a non-English speaking country, I was not fluent enough in English 10 years back. I attended a few classes but not for a longer period of time as I thought the teaching was not helping me much in improving my communication. I did a lot of research and followed some of the good English speakers in the world and after intensively digging on the internet, media and my surroundings, I came to know that what is being taught in the classroom to improve English has nothing or a very little to do with the real Spoken-English. I am not against English teachers neither I dislike classroom training I am just putting in words what I have experienced during my journey in becoming a fluent English speaker. What is more astonishing and surprising is that, most of the English learners are fully aware of the grammar and that is exactly what is being taught to them in the classrooms. Almost every English learner understands the usage of grammar but when it comes to speaking for about 5 minutes on any topic they fumble, they are unable to collect words in their mind to express themselves. These people understand simple English, if someone is speaking to them in English they are able to understand but cannot speak on their own. Some people can speak on few topics but when it comes to narrate or tell something which has the usage of specific words, they start finding the words but in the absence of an appropriate word they make a sentence in a way that looks lengthy and unprofessional. There are so many specific words which denote the specific expression or meaning. You look great while speaking in English if you use the words perfectly and have vocabulary if not for everything but on the common topics. People read newspapers, watch movies to improve their vocabulary and some of them even try to memorize the words. All of these methods are nice but the problem is, suppose today you learned some words to explain the beauty of a girl and tomorrow something else. People are not consistent in reading neither these materials will ensure to give you vocabulary on everything. There comes the need of writing this book. I have struggled to accumulate different sets of vocabulary during my journey to become a fluent speaker and my mission is that no one should struggle as much as I did. I have put my entire 10 years of experience in this book and arranged words for 80 most common situations. If you read a chapter daily within a span of 80 days you will have a vocabulary

Détails: The use of phones in the classroom is a controversial topic that receives a variety of reactions and can have political ramifications. In various school districts across different states, as well as in some countries, cell phone usage has been banned in the classroom to combat what administrators say is a distracted student population. However, research demonstrates that cell phones can have a positive effect on learning and engagement. Instead of banning cell phones, some teachers have found ways to incorporate educational apps, gaming apps, and social media into course materials. Although much research has emerged involving the integration of technology and digital literacies in English language arts (ELA) classrooms, mobile phone use as a discrete construct has not been explored widely. Affordances and Constraints of Mobile Phone Use in English Language Arts Classrooms aims to shine a light on the controversial topic of mobile phones in the English language arts classroom, focusing on comparing the opportunities that they afford students, as well as the negative effects they can have on learning. The chapters within this book examine learning outcomes, best practices, and practical applications for using mobile phones in ELA and adds to the body of literature on mobile phone use in secondary classrooms in general, standing as a unique resource on mobile phones in the language arts curriculum. While highlighting topics that include gaming applications, online learning, student engagement, and classroom management, this book is ideally designed for inservice and preservice teachers, administrators, teacher educators, practitioners, stakeholders, researchers, academicians, and students who are interested in learning more about the pluses and minuses of mobile phone use in ELA.

Détails: This book is at the very heart of linguistics. It provides the theoretical and methodological framework needed to create a successful linguistic project. Potential applications of descriptive linguistics include spell-checkers, intelligent search engines, information extractors and annotators, automatic summary producers, automatic translators, and more. These applications have considerable economic potential, and it is therefore important for linguists to make use of these technologies and to be able to contribute to them. The author provides linguists with tools to help them formalize natural languages and aid in the building of software able to automatically process texts written in natural language (Natural Language Processing, or NLP). Computers are a vital tool for this, as characterizing a phenomenon using mathematical rules leads to its formalization. NooJ – a linguistic development environment software developed by the author – is described and practically applied to examples of NLP.

Détails: This book explains and celebrates the richness of English churches and cathedrals, which have a major place in medieval architecture. The English Gothic style developed somewhat later than in France, but rapidly developed its own architectural and ornamental codes. The author, John Shannon Hendrix, classifies English Gothic architecture in four principal stages: the early English Gothic, the decorated, the curvilinear, and the perpendicular Gothic. Several photographs of these architectural testimonies allow us to understand the whole originality of Britain during the Gothic era: in Canterbury, Wells, Lincoln, York, and Salisbury. The English Gothic architecture is a poetic one, speaking both to the senses and spirit.

Détails: This extensively revised and expanded edition of the bestselling text and teaching resource incorporates the newest research in vocabulary learning and instruction into a complete and balanced program for all K–12 students, from those who struggle in school to those who excel. Literacy expert Michael Graves presents a four-pronged vocabulary program that he has developed and honed for over 30 years. The program has the following four components: Frequent, Varied, and Extensive Language Experiences; Teaching Individual Words; Teaching Word Learning Strategies; and Fostering Word Consciousness. The text includes theory, research-based strategies, vocabulary interventions, classroom examples, advice for working with English learners, discussion of next-generation standards, and more. The Vocabulary Book, Second Edition will appeal to reading and subject-area teachers, teacher educators, and school, district, and state leaders. New for the Second Edition: Instructional approaches developed and classroom-tested since the release of the first edition. A chapter specifically on teaching vocabulary to English learners. A chapter specifically on selecting vocabulary words to teach. Curricular and instructional elements designed to meet and exceed Common Core State Standards. An emphasis on vocabulary as a vital resource for all students in our increasingly diverse society. “If you believe vocabulary instruction is vital to reading, writing, and thinking, then Michael Graves’ Second Edition of The Vocabulary Book will give you the tools for powerful instruction, as many teachers discovered with the First Edition. This book will shift your perspective and you will reap the benefits of placing vocabulary at the center of your instruction.” —Peter Dewitz, district level reading consultant, Mary Baldwin College “Now that ‘vocabulary’ is included on the Nation’s Report Card, teachers will want to know how to help students increase their word power. Graves’s advice will be invaluable in what to do—and what not to do.” —Robert Calfee, professor emeritus, Stanford University “This book is an excellent resource for practitioners interested in developing a comprehensive program for building vocabulary in children. It is also of great value for researchers who wish to design and test vocabulary interventions.” —Diane August, senior research scientist, Center for Applied Linguistics
