Language and social schemata: gender representations in British magazines – Editura Universitatii din Bucureşti (2006) (Nonfiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:32PM
Description: The book endeavours to fill in a niche in contemporary feminist readings of masculinities and femininities, more specifically to shed some light on how Eastern Europeans from an ex-communist country like Romania decipher and assimilate Western constructions of masculinities and femininities. It may also address researchers in ‘community of practice’ approaches to gender and language by providing a local ethnographic study, which also leaves some room for generalisability beyond age and class constraints. In addition, the study may hopefully refine and expand schema theory so as to enhance its utility as an analytical tool. Providing a schema-based analysis of readers’ receptions of a particular text is meant to show that schemata, while being individual mental structures, need to be extrapersonal or shared in order to explain collective interpretations and adoptions of values and beliefs within specific communities of readers, i.e. young Romanian female intellectuals. The instruments devised for this investigation may prove to be flexible and rewarding pedagogical devices, for teachers as well as for designers of instruments working in the field of teaching English as a foreign language.
Pragmatics: some cognitive perpsectives (Nonfiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Mar 29, 2010 04:32PM
Description: This book endeavours to familiarise readers with key notions in the field of pragmatics: speech acts, conversational implicatures, face-threatening acts and politeness strategies while anchoring them in the users’ cognitive knowledge about the world. The ceaseless interaction between linguistic devices, illocutionary force designators and intentions is shown to be deeply rooted in the way humans mentally conceptualise the world as well as in the cultural models they assimilate and disseminate. This book has a twofold purpose: to clarify fundamental concepts tenets of pragmatics both by comparing definitions and approaches set forth by various scholars, and to illustrate them with detailed analyses of a wide array of texts, from sitcom dialogues to excerpts from women's mags or parodies of famous pop songs.

“When you're in a competitive environment, always give out the impression that you don't care. It makes people want you more. If you act desperate, it's over. I think a passive attitude is helpful. It comes naturally because I'm lazy.”

Emma Cline
“That was part of being a girl--you were resigned to whatever feedback you'd get. If you got mad, you were crazy, and if you didn't react, you were a bitch. The only thing you could do was smile from the corner they'd backed you into. Implicate yourself in the joke even if the joke was always on you.”
Emma Cline, The Girls

Kamila Shamsie
“Grief manifested itself in ways that felt like anything but grief; grief obliterated all feelings but grief; grief made a twin wear the same shirt for days on end to preserve the morning on which the dead were still living; grief made a twin peel stars off the ceiling and lie in bed with glowing points adhered to fingertips; grief was bad-tempered, grief was kind; grief saw nothing but itself, grief saw every speck of pain in the world; grief spread its wings large like an eagle, grief huddled small like a porcupine; grief needed company, grief craved solitude; grief wanted to remember, wanted to forget; grief raged, grief whimpered; grief made time compress and contract; grief tasted like hunger, felt like numbness, sounded like silence; grief tasted like bile, felt like blades, sounded like all the noise of the world. Grief was a shape-shifter, and invisible too; grief could be captured as reflection in a twin’s eye. Grief heard its death sentence the morning you both woke up and one was singing and the other caught the song.”
Kamila Shamsie, Home Fire

“Vicarious traumatization. It can happen to those who bear secondary witness to the traumas of others.”
Wally Lamb, The Hour I First Believed

Wally Lamb
“The non-jocks, the readers, the gay kids, the ones starting to stew about social injustice: for these kids, "letting your freak flag fly" is both self discovery and self defense. You cry for this bunch at the mandatory pep assemblies. Huddled together, miserably, in the upper reaches of the bleachers, wearing their oversized raincoats and their secondhand Salvation Army clothes, they stare down at the school-sanctioned celebration of the A list students. They know bullying, these kids--especially the ones who frefuse to exist under the radar. They're tripped in the hallway, shoved against lockers, pelted with Skittles in the lunchroom. For the most part, their tormentors are stealth artists.

The freaks know where there's refuge: I the library, the theater program, art class, creative writing.”
Wally Lamb, The Hour I First Believed

Jeremy I want to apologize for the all the recommendations from me today. I wanted to share the Stoker Award news, and I only pressed the send button once--I'm not sure what happened to create so many messages. Some weird glitch.

Argh...this is terrible...

Again, I'm very sorry.

Jeremy Here’s wishing you a nifty New Year filled with noiseless noses, neato nicknames, noble Nebraskans, gnarly narcoleptic nebulas, and novel novels about nut-eating narwhals and novercaphobic gnats.

P.S.—I’m currently offering autographed/personally-inscribed copies of my novel, Vacation, with free shipping for those in the US. If there’s anything you could do to help me spread the word about this, I’d really appreciate it. Feel free to click here for details:

Daniel Daniela, it is a fact that our writing today evolved from the very first phonetic writing that humans evolved a bit more than five thousand years ago, which is not long considering how long creatures like us have lived on this earth. Even the Egyptian writing didn't have vowels in it. Arabic writing still doesn't need verbs in it. Prepositions are a very late addition to our language. Good luck in your study of languages.
