  • by Hashim H. Noor & Nassir S. Al-Qadi

    A Course in Applied Linguistics for Arab EFL/ESL Students has been developed keeping in view the academic needs of native-Arabic speakers learning English as a second/foreign language. The book in the process of understanding how students acquire second language, sheds some light on how children acquire their first language. It reviews the observations of theorists on Contrastive Analysis, Error Analysis and Interlanguage as main factors that influence learners' performance. Some examples from real performance of Arab EFL/ESL learners are discussed and analyzed. The book reviews the observations of linguists and psychologists on the role of extrinsic and intrinsic non-linguistic factors that affect SLA. The book also gives good consideration of the views of experts on the efficacy of strategy training.At the end of each chapter, there are study questions to provide an opportunity for the readers to test their proficiency. Similarly, projects are also added for the students to practice. A list of references is added at the end of each chapter for further reading.

  • - The Last Romances of William Morris
    by Phillippa Bennett

    William Morris's last romances are strikingly original stories written in his final years, but they remain relatively neglected in both Morris studies and nineteenth-century literary studies. This book provides a full-length critical account of these works and their essential role in promoting the continuing importance of Morris's ideas. Approaching these romances through the concept of wonder, this book provides a new way of understanding their relevance to his writings on art and architecture, nature and the environment, and politics and Socialism. It establishes the integral connection between the romances and Morris's diverse cultural, social and political interests and activities, suggesting ways in which we might understand these tales as a culmination of Morris's thought and practice. Through a comprehensive analysis of these remarkable narratives, this book makes a significant contribution to both work on William Morris and to nineteenth-century studies more generally.

  • - Forms and techniques of film dialogue
    by Paolo Braga

    Words in Action dedicates to the subject of film dialogue a comprehensive exploration. The book analyzes a wide series of examples, perfectly chosen in contemporary American mainstream cinema - from Gladiator to The Devil Wears Prada, from Schindler's List to A Beautiful Mind, from Collateral to The Dark Knight - and, in some cases, also in prime time TV drama - ER, The West Wing, House M.D., John Adams. In a screenplay, the secrets of well written dialogue are hidden in the construction of the scene, where every word should stem from the theme of the story. At the light of this basic assumption, the book explores how Hollywood screenwriters create verbal duels assigning characters different frames of values and making the hero win by reframing what is at stake in the scene. The author elaborates on how Oscar winner authors such as Paul Haggis, Aaron Sorkin and Steven Zaillian create subtext. Finally, the book highlights the screenwriting techniques to cover exposition, an issue which gives the author also the opportunity to concentrate on the differences between dialogues in movies and in TV drama.

  • - The Female Knight-errant ("xia") in Traditional Chinese Narrative
    by Roland Altenburger

  • - International Reception

    This volume maps the reception of New Portuguese Letters in Portugal and abroad, with a mainly feminist approach. The ban on the book, deemed scandalous, and trial of the authors found instant international support abroad. An invaluable contribution to the history of women, the book is still relevant today for its insights on equality and freedom.

  • by Filip Malesevic

    This book presents a critical edition of a collection of liturgical manuscripts that theAugustinian friar Onofrio Panvinio (1530¿1568) assembled in the 1560s for the CardinalAlessandro Farnese as well as for Hans Jakob Fugger in Augsburg. Onofrio Panvinio isprimarily known for his antiquarian studies about ancient Rome and for his editionof Bartolomeo Platinäs Lives of the Popes. His preoccupation with the Roman rite,however, remains until today largely unnoticed by modern scholarship. This editionof Panvinio¿s Vetusti aliquot rituales libri highlights his interests in the developmentof Roman liturgy during the last sessions of the Council of Trent (1545¿1563) by presentingthe various documentary as well as cultural layers of Panvinio¿s collection ofRoman ritual manuscripts.
