  • From extra-linguistic pragmatic competence to more complex competences
           among children at an early age

    • Authors: Feten Boubakri
      Pages: 11 - 31
      Abstract: The present research finds it interesting to study first language acquisition at an early age from a pragmatic perspective. This research is based on a longitudinal study of the speech of three Tunisian children from the age of one year to the age of four. Consequently, the different competences and skills acquired throughout this period are classified into different types. Then, a comparison is done to see the time of their manifestations in the speech of each child. Subsequently, these utterances are analyzed in relation to their context. The findings reveal that pragmatic competence starts to appear at an extra-linguistic level from the age of one year, and it starts to appear at a linguistic level from the age of two. This shows that, even before the age of three, children are aware of different aspects of pragmatic competence. It is also shown that at the age of two, children are only able to produce different pragmatic strategies but comprehension is delayed to the age of three. Besides, the present research highlights the tight relationship between the early acquisition of extra-linguistic pragmatic competence and the early appearance of more complex skills and competences later.

  • A Bird’s Eye View of ‘Language and Law’

    • Authors: Vincent M. Chanda
      Pages: 32 - 43
      Abstract: The importance of language to mankind is such that not only all national constitutions have one or more provisions on language but so do all regional and international organizations in their conventions, treaties or similar instruments. The paper explores this fact, using empirical evidence. The relationship between language and law is not only in terms of which language is the official language, or which languages are official languages, but also in terms of how legal texts and lawyers use languages and also what are the linguistic characteristics of legal texts and statements, the study of which is referred to in the paper as ‘legal linguistics’. The paper points out that “legal language is not only used in written legal texts but also in statements made by lawyers as well as in conventions, treaties and similar instruments of regional and international organizations”. The last topic of the paper is linguistic rights. Linguistic rights are human rights but linguistic rights, like any human right, are only binding if they are enshrined in a national constitution or in a convention, treaty or similar instrument of a regional or international organization.

  • The inter-relatedness of Sala and other Bantu Botatwe Languages ( Ila,
           Lenje, Soli and Tonga) in Zambia

    • Authors: Avinat Chitebeta
      Pages: 44 - 52
      Abstract: The inter-relatedness of Sala and other Bantu Botatwe languages in Zambia is a study which involved a lexicostatistical survey on the inter-relatedness of Sala, Lenje, Soli and Tonga. According to Doke (1954), Bantu Botatwe refers to the language group comprising the seven languages of the Tonga group, namely Ila, Lenje, Lundwe, Sala, Soli, Tonga and Twa. The affinity of these languages is generally accepted.  However, no systematic study of the lexicostatistical analysis has been made. The purpose of this study is to make a contribution to the existing knowledge in comparative Bantu linguistics by conducting a lexicostatistical survey on the degree of inter-relatedness of the languages investigated.The study specifically focused on Sala, one of the least documented languages in the Bantu Botatwe Group, to establish its degree of inter-relatedness with Tonga, the language used for initial literacy and as a school subject in Sala-speaking areas. Further, the study included Lenje and Soli, making a total of four languages studied.‘The Swadesh list’ of two hundred (200) vocabulary items, was the basis for comparison. Three informants (Translators) of above forty-five (45) years of age were carefully chosen from each language using purposive sampling.The data collected were analyzed using the lexicostatistical method whose results were presented in tables and graphs.  Established cognates were coded: a plus (+) sign for cognates; a minus sign for non-cognates; a hash (#) sign for the second set of cognates; a caret (^) sign for the third set of cognates. The study employed the tenets from historical and comparative linguistics and lexicostatistics theoretical framework.The study established that Sala’s degree of inter-relatedness with other three languages studied, ranges from 67 percent to 81.5 percent. The highest percentage of inter-relatedness is between Sala and Lenje at 81.5 percent followed by Sala and Tonga at 80 percent, Sala and Ila at 70 percent while Sala and Soli is at 67 percent. The researcher concludes that the speech forms like Sala and Lenje, Sala and Tonga, are dialects of the same language due to a high degree of mutual intelligibility based on the vocabulary and lexicostatically. Sala and Ila, Sala and Soli are distinct languages though their inter-relatedness is 70 and 67 percent respectively.

  • La Migration Peule Et Ses Conséquences En Afrique Sub-Saharienne :
           Quelques Réflexions Sur La Brousse Ardente De Cyprian Ekwensi

    • Authors: Umar Muhammad Dogondaji
      Pages: 53 - 68
      Abstract: Cyprian Ekwensi s’est véritablement signale à la critique en 1954 lors de la publication de son premier grand roman People of the City, suivi de Jagua Nana en 1961, et Burning Grass en 1962. Le roman est traduit de l’anglais au français sous le titre de La Brousse Ardente en 1978. Dans ses huit grands romans, Ekwensi ne cesse de questionner l’Afrique aux plans sociaux, politiques et culturels. Cet engagement inscrit au cœur de ses préoccupations, fait de sa production romanesque une critique d’une Afrique en perpétuel mouvement dans un monde en plein mutation. Le roman est donc une création artistique de l’auteur entre le réel et l’imaginaire. Il est un récit d’une société pastorale du nord du Nigeria. La Brousse Ardente d’Ekwensi sous forme d’un conte remue les expériences personnelles du vieux Mai Sunsaye et celle de ses gardiens de troupeaux. Dans cette société, lorsqu’on brule l’herbe dans les pleins, les bergers – Fulani descendent avec leurs troupeaux vers le sud du pays où se trouve les Rivers du  fleuve  Niger. Le vieux Mai Sunsaye, un père de famille, héros de l’histoire, souffre du Sokugo, la maladie d’errance. Affectée par ce sort, Mai Sunsaye quitte sa famille un jour, à l’insu de tout le monde en poursuivant un pigeon. Au cours de ses errances, il retrouve Fatimeh qui grâce à sa connaissance des herbes et des médicaments traditionnels guérît ce dernier. Le roman nous laisse donc à réfléchir sur les courants des migrations en Afrique sub-saharien en général et la migration  de la société peule en particulier. Nos réflexions à travers ce conte nous permettront évidement de tirer des leçons. Par ce fait, ce conte peut contribuer directement à amener des solutions liées à l’insécurité dans la sous-région ou aux d’autres problèmes relatifs à la migration. Ce conte pourrait même être un tremplin pour le développement de la région de Tahoua et celle du nord du Nigeria où la menace de Boko Haram est trop accentuée. Malheureusement, Malgré sa noblesse et ses adhérences aux principes du Pulaaku le code moral de la société peulh, la société est soupçonné d’être impliquée dans les multiples problèmes de l’insécurité entre le Nigeria et ses pays voisins : le Niger, le Cameroun, et le Tchad. Cette communication s’articule donc autour de ces quatre axes : les parcours littéraires de l’auteur, la forme et le fond dudit roman, les personnages importants du roman et les conséquences de leurs déplacements, la signification de cette œuvre aussi bien que la vision du monde de cet auteur populaire Nigérian dont les œuvres romanesques traduites de l’anglais en français circulent dans l’Espace francophone en Afrique de l’ouest.

  • Pratiques langagières « des enfants de la rue » en Côte d’Ivoire :
           une analyse morpho-lexicale et syntaxique du cas nouchi

    • Authors: Sia Modeste Gnato
      Pages: 69 - 84
      Abstract: Le groupe nominal « les jeunes de la rue » désigne des locuteurs composés de badauds et de jeunes déscolarisés à hétérogénéité linguistiques qui prennent la rue comme lieu de prédilection. La nécessité d’intercompréhension de ces jeunes qui ne maîtrisent pas la langue française va générer le « langage de rue » dénommé le «  nouchi ». C’est une sorte de « pidgin » qui connaît un essor et qui se glisse subtilement dans la communication de la quasi-totalité de la population ivoirienne. La présente contribution se focalise sur les conditions d’émergence de ce « langage de ghetto », son procédé d’enrichissement lexical, sa syntaxe et se fonctions socio-communicationnelles.

  • Acculturation of Halal Food to Chinese Food Culture through the Ancient
           Silk Road and Hui Minority Nationality

    • Authors: Abdelhadi Halawa
      Pages: 85 - 105
      Abstract:  This meta-analysis study examined the acculturation of halal food to the Chinese food culture. Acculturation is a sociocultural transition through which a group of people or an individual assimilates to a different dominant culture or a country by adopting a set of linguistic skills, social traits, and dietary practices of the host culture. Consuming halal food prepared according to certain Islamic regulations is a mandatory religious dietary obligation required of all Muslims irrespective of where they live or travel to. The word “halal food” in Arabic denotes food that is legal and permissible to consume. Among other dietary requirements, Islamic tenets require the consumption of meat obtained only from animals that have been slaughtered according to strict rules, prohibiting consuming porcine food products, meat from beasts, dead animal meat, animal blood, and any quantity of alcohol. Islam and halal food traditions were introduced to China in the early 7th century through the Central Asian, Arab, and Persian merchants, soldiers, and missionaries who trekked the treacherous ancient overland and maritime Silk Road trade routes. Throughout its history, China has been a non-Muslim country hitherto halal food practice has been securely acculturated and even has been flourishing as a seminal constituent of the contemporaneous Chinese food culture. This paper discusses the three key factors that have contributed to the effective acculturation of halal food to the Chinese food culture. First, the role of the Chinese Hui Minority Nationality that has been living, practicing Islam and halal food consumption uninterruptedly in China for nearly 14 centuries. Second, the existence of the ancient Silk Road that then served as a gateway to northwestern China for the migratory Muslim progenitors of the modern-day Hui people. Third, the open-mindedness of the Chinese people that enabled them to readily accept non-traditional Chinese food ingredient imports from foreign cultures, which has led to the relative facilitation of the natural acculturation of halal to the Chinese food culture. This paper further investigates the current economic impact of halal food on the burgeoning halal products market that has the potential of positioning China on the global halal food map as one of major producer and exporter in the international halal products economy that is valued at approximately $2.3 trillion.

  • Audio visual Translation: a Case of Subtitled Cartoons

    • Authors: Hooshang Khoshsima, MasoumehYazdani Moghadam
      Pages: 106 - 116
      Abstract: Audiovisual products in different languages are now widely distributed throughout the world, and subtitling as a branch of audiovisual translation is of considerable importance today. Subtitling of foreign cartoon movies into Persian is a new event in our country and it needs to be studied thoroughly. The aim of the study was to find  the most common strategies adopted in animated movies subtitled from English to Persian based on Gottlieb( 1994)’s strategies. To achieve this goal, three subtitled cartoon movies namely Merry Madagascar, Up and Cloudy with the Chance of Meatball were selected and fifteen sentences of them were chosen at random. Then, these sentences were compared with their Persian subtitle. The results indicated that transfer strategy was applied with the highest frequency in the Persian subtitle.

  • Saint Veneration and Nature Symbolism in North Africa

    • Authors: Tamaki Kitagawa
      Pages: 117 - 139
      Abstract: In spite of the recent rise of fundamentalism within Islam, Muslims have continued to engage in religious activities involving the veneration of natural objects, usually in connection with the veneration of saints. These practices represent the modification of the pre-Islamic beliefs into saint veneration rituals, enabling them to exist within monotheism. This paper aims to demonstrate how saint veneration is connected with natural objects and how saint-associated natural objects obtain their symbolic function at certain sanctuaries along the border between Arab and Amazigh villages in South Tunisia. It is discovered that at the sanctuaries of established saints, the veneration of natural objects is explained as originating from saints’ actions and preferences during their lifetimes. Such explanations are valid for villagers in places where human saints have a major presence. On the other hand, in places where archaic Amazigh traditions are well preserved, more importance is attached to the natural objects and the ancestral or spiritual saints than to the historical figures. It is assumed that the elements of indigenous animism have survived the pressure by Islam under Arabization, and it have been transformed into something acceptable within Islam, namely, belief in saints, or jinn used by saints.

  • Britain and British Muslims: A Long- Lasting Relation of Assimilation and
           Pro-action between East and West

    • Authors: Abdelhak Mejri
      Pages: 169 - 188
      Abstract: The current relation between Britain and its British Muslim citizens has been continuously a relation of assimilation and pro-action. This paper seeks to show whether the  effects of British colonialism in the Indian sub-continent may by themselves account for the subsequent conflictual relation between a Western exclusive consensus and an Eastern insular one. It is an attempt to examine if,    under some other ample impacts of changing local and global times and politics, other local and global circumstances need to be considered in the apprehension of the ongoing relation between East and West, currently termed North and South. Excluding some vital individual needs, the present assimilation-pro-action theme seems to have penetrated different minds and spaces despite the hindrances of distances and frontiers.

           Christian Worship in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania

    • Authors: Kassomo Mkallyah
      Pages: 201 - 217
      Abstract: This paper discusses delineates how indigenous music traditions were introduced and eventually became the main staple of Dar es Salaam-based Christian churches in Tanzania. It argues that cultural revivalism of indigenous forms of music in church helped to transform Christian worship, shape people’s experiences and spread the church in general. It begins by establishing the functions of music in traditional pre-colonial contact African societies and during the introduction of Western Christian faith. Moreover, it shows how the new Christian faith, in turn, also shapes the music traditions in contemporary Christian worship in Tanzania. Finally, the paper discusses the extent to which this music brings new changes in contemporary Christian churches in Dar es Salaam.

  • Death as an Overarching Signifier in Don Delillo’s White Noise

    • Authors: Hassen Sakaama
      Pages: 232 - 244
      Abstract: Delillo’s continuous philosophical and intellectual brooding gravitates around the perplexing theme of death which seems to represent the binding thread that conjoins his numerous novels. Admittedly, many of his novels end with the death of one of his lead characters after having been assailed for a long time by both fears and dangers. Accordingly, death in Don Delillo’s fiction is not merely a theme he unwittingly approaches; it is, instead, a sensible quintessential representation of the spirit of the age in which he writes and an aesthetic reflection on what it means to exist in America in the second half of the previous century. Although death is essentially an intimate matter that is interwoven into the texture of our private everyday lives and a personal experience we go through unaccompanied, Delillo was able to transform it into an aesthetic concern by conjoining both its apocalyptic and its ordinary aspects (James 120). He diffused it in his fiction and reflected the ways in which it is interspersed in the fabric of contemporary American culture and consciousness.The aim of this paper is to explore the theme of death in Don Delillo’s White Noise through the different ways the characters respond to their existential crises and fears in a society that is extensively dominated by technology, the media and consumption. This paper represents an endeavor to analyze the significance of this leitmotif and the meanings related to it by focusing especially on the major character Jack Gladney in his strenuous journey towards recognition and self-awareness.

    • Authors: Kufre Usanga
      Pages: 245 - 257
      Abstract: Gabriel Okara, J. P. Clark and a number of poets from the Niger Delta region of Nigeria have engaged with the ecological devastation of the oil-rich Delta in their poetry. However, Tanure Ojaide appears to be the most prolific and activistic of contemporary poets of the region; his poetic aesthetic charts a different approach to understanding the unabated ecocide in the Niger Delta. This paper examines Ojaide’s poetics of fusing two aesthetic practices: oral traditions — native to Urhobo people of the Niger Delta region — and the modern scribal form to evoke a peculiar petro-lore in the collection Songs of Myself1. How does folkloric tradition frame Ojaide’s poetry' How does his engagement with folklore engender an aesthetic of petro-lore particular to the Delta'  This essay will draw on ecocritical theories to examine these questions as well as analyze the poet’s eco-concerns in Songs of Myself, in order to demonstrate the poet’s unflinching engagement with environmental entanglements and tensions.

  • The Warning Messages of DuPrau’s Novel The City of Ember and Kenan’s
           Film Adaptation with Reference to the Theory of Conspiracy

    • Authors: Mayada Zuhair, Ansam Yaroub
      Pages: 260 - 276
      Abstract: The city of Ember is a very interesting novel that is although intended for young readers, have so many layers and messages that are misunderstood. In this research, both the novel and the film adaptation are studied with the intent to decode the warning messages that the novelist and the director tried to introduce to the audience. The research studies four vital messages; the first message is that history repeats itself for the novel has many allusions to the history of Jews and their painful holocaust and even goes back in history to the days of Moses and the Exodus, the second message tackles the conspiracy theory that states nothing happens by accident and that everything is planned by thesecret societies the Freemasons hence comes the third message of the New World Conspiracy incarnated in the film adaptation of the novel. Finally, the fourth messages come as a rather dark omen, Man's internal fear of the end whether the religious end represented by the apocalypse or the scientific end and the expiry of the earth. Since the novel is for young readers, the author provided a silver lining at the final message stating people always find a solution for all their problems in spite of the chronic fear.
