  • Selecting ESP reading materials

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Vuković-Stamatović; Milica; Bratić, Vesna
      Abstract: Bearing in mind that teachers often find themselves in a position where they have to produce their own teaching materials for English for Specific Purposes (ESP) classes, vocabulary profiling studies of certain genres may be of help in such situations. English for Science is an ESP field commonly taught around the world; however, despite this, the teaching resources for it are not as plentiful as the ESP teachers would like them to be.

  • Challenges of Written Response to Student Writing: Praise, Over-Commenting
           and Appropriation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Sokolov; Cvetka
      Abstract: Teachers’ marginal and end comments are an essential part of teaching and evaluating students’ written work. However, the method can backfire when teachers resort to insincere formulaic praise, fall into the trap of over-commenting, and lose sight of the actual author of the text, appropriating it in the process. The challenges of providing effective written feedback require an examination of students’ attitudes toward it, both to reassure teachers that they are doing better than they think they are, but also to make them aware that there is much room for improvement.

  • The Suffix -ation in English

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: ten Hacken; Pius; Panocová, Renáta
      Abstract: This paper analyses the role of the suffix -ation in English, based on data from the OED. The suffix forms deverbal nouns. Its origin can be traced back to Latin, but French had an important part in it, too. For the analysis, nouns in -ation and their corresponding verbs were retrieved from the OED. The purpose of the analysis was to characterize the position of -ation in the mental lexicon of current speakers of English and to assess the role of the word formation rule in the history of the formation of nouns in -ation.

  • The Perception of Leonard Cohen in Slovenia as a Singer-Songwriter and a
           Literary Figure

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Trupej; Janko
      Abstract: For the majority of his long career, Leonard Cohen may have been somewhat underappreciated in the United States of America, but he has achieved considerable renown and commercial success in other parts of the world, for instance in his native Canada and in many European countries. The present paper endeavours to establish the extent to which the latter is also true for Cohen’s status in Slovenia – a small country in Central Europe, which until 1991 formed part of socialist Yugoslavia.

  • The Situation of Discourse: Evidence from Discourse Markers

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Heine; Bernd; Kaltenböck, Gunther
      Abstract: One of the main problems associated with research on discourse markers concerns their meaning. A large body of rich analyses has been presented, based on a range of different frameworks, such as conversation analysis, relevance theory, cognitive linguistics, or grammaticalization theory, to deal with the complexity of functions that discourse markers exhibit. The goal of the present paper is restricted in scope.

  • Voices Lost with Femininity and Masculinity in The Beet Queen

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Chen; Qianqian; Tan, Joan Qionglin
      Abstract: This article examines lost voices in Louise Erdrich’s novel The Beet Queen. Impacted by the white-male-elite values, white woman Sita Kozka and Native American man Russell Kashpaw, in their endeavor to forge ultimate femininity and masculinity, experience downward trajectory phases marked by loud voices, objectification, oppression, voice loss, and death. By comparing Sita’s death and Russell’s rebirth, it unfolds that the pursuit of femininity and masculinity, within the patriarchal and racial conceptual framework, results in voicelessness and disempowerment.
