In the forum, the various speakers considered the notion of borders in different ways. Each presenter gave a short talk of minutes, and after the presentations there was an interactive question and answer session in which audience members were invited to comment on and talk with the presenters about their topics.
In this paper a summary of each talk is given in 6 short sections in order to document the event in the proceedings of the conference. Poetry in Motion — Revamping Literary Recitals.

Speech and recital contests are not rare in the language learning landscape of Japan and elsewher However, preparations often neglect important aspects of a good delivery. Too often, student recitals are delivered either in a monotonous fashion with too little attention being paid to segmental phonology and prosody, or highlighting measures like pitch or volume are overused or inappropriately applied.
At Aichi Prefectural University a special class has been developed in order to tackle this problem. Students are thoroughly familiarised with what is a successful spoken performance. Students are practically introduced to basic aspects of drama pedagogy, phonation, voice coaching, and to simplified concepts of target language TL prosody. Further, a strong emphasis is placed on identifying one's audience and adjusting the delivery accordingly. Presentations offer good opportunities for language learners to try out their speaking skills.
The scaffolding effect of scripting is here of particular interest. Especially, in the context of teaching in Japan. Scripting is here to be understood as the careful and deliberate preparation of both content and language side of the delivery. The performance side of a scripted presentation, however, is the crucial litmus test. Mere monotonous reading out aloud cannot be the goal. After all, few of us are professional speakers or actors, skilled in presenting canned text well.

Literally clinging to the text in the shape of paper notes, also pre-empts any deliberate usage of gestures to enhance accessibility of the content presented. Students can scripts, prepare their pictures and present individually or in groups. On top of that, "Mexican" refers to a nationality whereas "black person" refers to above mentioned pigmentation. I can see this thread has dramatically deteriorated.
I can only hope Doris sees it and puts it out of its misery. Die Schlussfolgerung von lonelobo ist gar nicht so abwegig!

Comment Gillespie, du musst die Meinungen hier akzeptieren. Comment OK Good night folks;. Comment Oh, for heaven's sake. Lonelobo and Gillespie: Personal insults, especially in offensive language, are not acceptable in this forum. Please think before you write. You both owe all of us an apology. But since I had already typed all this while you were acting like year-olds But if you mean the US, up to the end of the 20th century, Spanish was not widely spoken for at least two centuries.
Or French, for that matter, which was once spoken in some areas. Before that, Spanish was a language of colonization too, and only for a century or two. So if we were going to return to some sort of pristine linguistic Garden of Eden, we would all have to speak a bunch of different American Indian languages. Many of which are indeed threatened with extinction, BTW. English is indeed the de facto national language in the US. As dude says, in fact, most Hispanic immigrants historically have learned English very quickly and well by the second generation, even in predominantly Spanish-speaking neighborhoods in Florida, South Texas, and Southern California.
Third and later generations might not even speak much Spanish, though many learn it in school. Only in the last 15 or 20 years, with sharp increases in both illegal immigration and in national Spanish-language broadcasting, has such a significant underclass grown up of people who speak only Spanish and very little English. But even it is still a minority. I don't want to send those people back home or forbid them to speak Spanish.
But, not unlike judex, I do tend to think it would be better for the US as a whole to promote English more intentionally as our primary language, and to work harder to help immigrants learn it and become citizens, rather than either ghettoizing Spanish speakers as a kind of second-class society, or idealizing Latinos as somehow independent from other Americans. We've tried 'separate but equal' before; it's not fair, and more to the point, it's never really true. To get back to the original topic: I think it's reasonable to require all kids in Ireland to learn at least a year or two of Irish, but I don't know if it would be worth it for more than that in comparison to a more widely spoken language.
Basically, it depends on what the majority of the Irish want -- if they want to hear, read, and use Irish officially and publicly, then kids will have to study it longer. It is actually possible to revive half-dead languages if you have enough speakers. Isn't that pretty much what the Israelis did when they made Hebrew into a modern language again?
The interesting thing about that is that it's bound to change the language a lot, just because of the need to add new concepts that didn't exist in the ancient language. Someone in the forum a few months ago was talking about Icelandic in that respect, the effort to intentionally create new words from Icelandic roots rather than just importing foreign words.
Germany had a movement like that back in the 19th century, didn't it? I would be curious whether Irish Gaelic constructs many new words or just imports English words. The really sad languages are the ones that only have a tiny handful of speakers left alive. There was an interesting little documentary on PBS this year about linguists who travel the world recording audio samples and interviewing elderly speakers of near-extinct languages, taking notes on grammar and vocabulary. That seemed like a good, if perhaps quixotic, thing to do.
I kind of hate to see any language die, just like it's sad when an animal species becomes extinct. Comment I kind of hate to see any language die, just like it's sad when an animal species becomes extinct. Fortunately, this happens all the time. It's called progress, evolution, change, whatever you want to call it.
It would be sad if it didn't happen. Imagine dinosaurs still roaming around today; imagine the whole world speaking only whatever the first humans at Olduvai Gorge might have spoken Languages, for the most parts, are dialects: French, Spanish, Romanian, Italian, and several other languages are nothing more than dialects of Latin that have evolved to such a degree that they are considered to be separate languages.

Or they are amalgamations of a number of different other languages spoken by people who came and conquered, like English. But they are products of change, and as such, they are destined to either change or to die out eventually. Comment Just a quick point of fact: Texas has no official language. Many states do not. English is the defacto "Amtssprache", but not officially. Comment I would be curious whether Irish Gaelic constructs many new words or just imports English words. Es ist der typische Effekt - war mal nicht toll in einer Generation, aber die Kinder dieser Generation finden es wieder cool.
Und vielleicht haben sie die Unterrichtsmethoden verbessert. Was ich bei Briten eher weniger erlebt habe. Sorry an alle mitlesenden Briten. Der erste Satz ist das irische Pendant zu "Darf ich austreten?
Comment In Israel hat die Reanimation einer bereits toten Sprache recht gut geklappt. Comment 86 I think it's an amusing but ultimately tragic irony in discussing simultaneously the teaching of Gaelic to establish national identity and the insistence upon English for the United States. Why is it that Gaelic needs to be resurrected again? Ah, right, because some imperialists crushed it - because the English didn't want the Irish learning a language that they could communicate with one another in, and because they wanted to suppress national identity.

But it's OK to do that in the US, then? I'm from Canada, where we had reservation schools where American Indians were beaten for speaking their native language - all in the name of integration. You don't think these sorts of moves breed resentment and loathing? A good number of Americans are presumably not native English speakers - are they then not "true Americans? People are individuals, and they're best understood that way.
