Intercultural Communication for English as a Second Language

Logic Beyond Language

Although philosophy has lately seemed increasingly subjective – which usually means uncertain – this book presents a neat answer to the old philosophical question: “what is truth?†Such an answer stems from the behavior of truth itself by following its most elementary contradictions and further developing their consequences. Then, a set of categories emerge, which proves useful in tackling problems as apparently disparate as the origin of time and space, of public and private institutions, and of economic value: Logic Beyond Language provides “almost-Marxian†alternatives to Marx’s own theories of money, exchange, value, and class struggle, lastly finding socialism to be just a dream, or at least not the end of capital. Additionally, those new categories prove useful also in broadly classifying all tentative solutions to the overwhelmingly long-standing logical “Paradox of the Liar,†so it results in just a form of logic beyond language.

Beyond Language Teaching Towards Language Advising

The growth of language centres and the shift in language learning from a teacher-led to a more learner-centred approach have involved a repositioning of the teacher and a reappraisal of the teacher's skills. In many higher education institutions, it has led to the development of a completely new professional role - the language advisor. This book provides an insight into the emerging profession of language advisers and is a vital source of guidance for all those who need to ensure optimal use of the facilities and resources of a language centre.

Communicating Beyond Language

Everyday Encounters with Diversity

This new book offers a timely and lively appraisal of the concept of communicative repertoires, resources we use to express who we are when in dialogue with others. Each chapter describes and illustrates the communicative resources humans deploy daily, but rarely think about – not only the multiple languages we use, but how we dress or gesture, how we greet each other or tell stories, the nicknames we coin, and the mass media references we make – and how these resources combine in infinitely varied performances of identity. Rymes also discusses how our repertoires shift and grow over the course of a lifetime, as well how a repertoire perspective can lead to a rethinking of cultural diversity and human interaction, from categorizing people’s differences to understanding how our repertoires can expand and overlap with other, thereby helping us to find common ground and communicate in increasingly multicultural schools, workplaces, markets, and social spheres. Rymes affirms the importance of the communicative repertoires concept with highly engaging discussions and contemporary examples from mass media, popular culture, and everyday life. The result is a fresh and exciting work that will resonate with students and scholars in sociolinguistics, intercultural communication, applied linguistics, and education.

Beyond Language Boundaries

Multimodal Use in Multilingual Contexts

In multilingual societies speakers overcome traditional language boundaries. Research on their multilingual and multimodal language use intertwines pragmatics including multimodality with cross-linguistic and transcultural perspectives. This volume links theoretical considerations with empirical evidence from data of spoken language use in Catalan, Croatian, English, German, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish and Spanish as L1, L2 or FL.
