Jesus Prom: Life Gets Fun When You Love People ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Do we love people like Jesus loves them? Jesus loved verbs. He loved action words such as live, come, rest, learn, hear, give, go, and even die. Wouldn’t it make sense that the people who claim to follow Jesus would love the same words Jesus loved? Unfortunately, somewhere along the way someone tried to make the word Christian an adjective. So now people speak of "Christian" books and "Christian" music and "Christian" schools. When people use the word Christian as an adjective instead of a noun, the word loses its meaning. Maybe this explains why so many churches have lost their purpose. In Jesus Prom, Jon Weece explains how our goal as Christians is to become increasingly more like Jesus. Jesus loves people, which means we should love people the way Jesus loves them: through action. Live, care, give, go - love the way Jesus does. 1. Language: English. Narrator: E. Timothy Bass.

What is a TEXT?

Seminar paper from the year 2001 in the subject American Studies - Linguistics, grade: 2,5 (B), Dresden Technical University (Institute for Anglistics/American Studies), course: Seminar: Linguistics and Poetics, 12 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Text Linguistics With all the books and writings so manyfolded and spread across the world, has anybody ever wondered what a text is? Early on children start reading and writing. At school they call it text reading or text comprehension, which everybody accepts but nobody ever questions. I did not either, until April 2001. Within the course Linguis-tics and Poetics I chose to talk about the definition of text and suddenly I wondered what that was - four letters forming the one word, TEXT. In this paper I want to go where several scholars have gone before. I want to discuss questions like: What part of linguistics devotes time and effort to text defini-tions? Where lie its origins? What is a text, and last but not least, what do people do with a text? Books to answer these questions are available at large by now and a chosen number of twelve shall help me to uncover the answers to those aforemen-tioned questions as I go along. This paper is to be written within the framework of linguistics, a field analyzing specific language structures such as phonemes, morphemes and words. Apart from those, though, it also covers syntactic (e.g. noun- or verb phrases) and semantic structures (e.g. sememes). When working on textual structures, scholars enter the field of text linguistics. For Teun van Dijk this means: 'any work in language science devoted to the text as the primary object of inquiry.' (De Beaugrande 1981: 14) The origins of text linguistics lie in Ancient Greece and Rome. Back then it was called rhetorics. Its focus was, for instance, on how ideas could be arranged and with which appropriate expressions. In the 1960s, a text was regarded as one unit larger than a sentence, and in the '70s different types of text structures were discovered and classified. Those were the days when only few researchers were familiar with text studies, whereas nowadays a large number of works is available. Today a text is more likely to be seen as something that consists of well-formed sentences in sequence. [...]

Why Time Flies
13,15 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'An insightful meditation on the curious nature of time…A highly illuminating intellectual investigation' (Kirkus Reviews) explaining the sometimes contradictory ways we experience time. 'Time' is the most commonly used noun in the English language; it's always on our minds and it advances through every living moment. But what is time, exactly? Do children experience it the same way adults do? Why does it seem to slow down when we're bored and speed by as we get older? How and why does time fly? 'Erudite and informative, a joy with many small treasures' (Science), this witty and meditative exploration by award-winning author and New Yorker staff writer Alan Burdick—'one of the finest science writers at work today, with an uncanny ability to explain knotty topics, with humanity, and humor' (Publishers Weekly, staff pick, best books of 2016)—takes readers on a personal quest to understand how time gets in us and why we perceive it the way we do. In the company of scientists, he visits the most accurate clock in the world (which exists only on paper); discovers that 'now' actually happened a split-second ago; finds a twenty-fifth hour in the day; lives in the Arctic to lose all sense of time; and, for one fleeting moment in a neuroscientist's lab, even makes time go backward. 'Why Time Flies captures us. Because it opens up a well of fascinating queries and gives us a glimpse of what has become an ever more deepening mystery for humans: the nature of time' (The New York Times Book Review). This 'intellectual adventure renders a hefty topic accessible to the general public' (Richmond Times-Dispatch), is an instant classic, a vivid and intimate examination of the clocks that tick inside us all.

Word Frequencies in Written and Spoken English
68,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Word Frequencies in Written and Spoken English is a landmark volume in the development of vocabulary frequency studies. Whereas previous books have in general given frequency information about the written language only, this book provides information on both speech and writing. It not only gives information about the language as a whole, but also about the differences between spoken and written English, and between different spoken and written varieties of the language. The frequencies are derived from a wide ranging and up-to-date corpus of English: the British National Corpus, which was compiled from over 4,000 written texts and spoken transcriptions representing the present day language in the UK. The book is based on a new version of the corpus (available from 2001) providing more accurate grammatical information, which is essential (for example) for distinguishing words like leaves (noun) and leaves (verb) with different meanings. The book begins with a general introduction, explaining why such information is important and highlighting interesting linguistic findings that emerge from the statistical analysis of the British National Corpus vocabulary. It also contains twenty four 'interest boxes' which highlight and comment on different aspects of frequency - for example, the most common colour words in English in order of frequency, and a comparison of male words (e.g. man) and female words (e.g. woman) in terms of their frequency.

The Kewapi Language of Papua New Guinea
45,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book contains a linguistic account of the Kewapi language of Southern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea (PNG), which is also known as the Kewa language. The language is described and explained in the English language. The book presents a description of phonology, morphology, syntax and semantic structures of the language. The following aspects of language are included: Phonology (sound systems, suprasegmental elements - stress, tone); Word classes and forms (morphosyntactic features); Clause structure (subject, object, case-marking, clause types, transitivity); Noun phrase structures (descriptive, possessive, adverbial phrases); Verb and verb phrase structures (descriptive, possessive, adverbial phrases); Embedded and subordinate clauses (complement, relative, adverbial clauses); Coordinate sentences (coordinate clauses, switch-reference markings); Language typology (a comparison of Kewapi morphosyntactic features with non-Austronesian or Papuan languages of PNG). Books on language and linguistics in PNG, written predominantly by outsiders, are often not written for Papua New Guinean students to read and understand. This is a reference grammar that describes the forms and functions of the Kewapi language. Clearly written and easy to read, this book will be an essential source of information for students of language and linguistics. PNG is rich in languages, over 800 of them. Many of these languages are only spoken orally. So when speakers pass away or use English and/or Tokpisin (the official languages of Papua New Guinea) for socio-economic reasons, their native or mother-tongue languages begin to disappear. This book may be used as a research guide for documenting a language.
