In the process of acquiring the first language we learn how to accommodate our articulatory apparatus in order to produce the phonemes, interestingly, when speaking the native language we almost never think how the sounds are articulated. Of course, not all of the languages have the same phonemes; some of which have a direct counterpart or a similar sounding phoneme, while others do not exist in the L2. English language for example has 26 letters and 44 phonemes as compared to Spanish with 29 letters and 24 phonemes and to Russian with 33 letters and 42 phonemes (cite footnote). When learning the L2, learners tend to use the same ‘pronunciation tools’ as in speech production of their mother tongue, therefore distorting the sounds of L2. Thus researches (e.g.
Speakers of different languages are constantly changing registers from their native language to foreign language. This is called “code-switching”. It is used either for expressing something that has not the same meaning as in your native language, for replacing a word or maybe just because we are very familiar with one language that we shift to by accident. Besides, “studies shows that bicultural bilinguals may exibit different verbal behaviors in their two languages and may be perceived differently by their interlocutors depending on the language they use in a particular cotext” . As the writer suggests, for these bilinguals “the two languages may be linked to different linguistic repertoires, cultural scripts, frames or expectation, autobiographic memories, and levels of proficiency and
Led by a natural catastrophe which precipitated death and famine. It also was a result of the conflict between the government of the Xin dynasty and its people. As Joseph Tainter (1988) states, “single-event catastrophes, such things as hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, or major disease epidemics, are enduring favourites for explaining collapse (p. 52).” In other words, a single-event can cause a societal collapse when the event is significant enough to destabilize the structure of a society. Joseph Tainter’s understanding of a catastrophe supports other theories regarding the flood of the Yellow River. In particular, the theory of Michael Loewe and his description of the crisis and conflict that occurred during the reign of Wang Bang in
This kind of deformation is classified as natural disasters and causes destruction through flooding, rifts and collapsing of large buildings in cities. This affects the environment because it creates a negative balance in energy and leads to mass loss of species, habitats and food sources (Nelson, 2016). Earthquakes break up large portions of continents while volcanic activity creates new land; according to(Botkin and Keller (1998), both of these processes disrupt “atmospheric and ocean circulation” as well as the fauna and flora of an area (pg 142).

There are many different ideas to be said the main reasons for the fall of Rome. But in the end, there were many things that contributed to Rome’s collapse. Disasters and diseases, Rome’s emperors, and the Roman military were the primary reasons for the fall of Rome. The first primary reason is diseases and disasters. This was a main source because in the time of the fall, according to Document A, an earthquake struck the Roman Empire, and measles were spread to Rome from Southern Asia, which led to the population dramatically dropping.
Not only did the Taliban negatively affect Amir but the people around him, the environment, and they were the cause of many deaths. As one of the results of the Taliban taking over Kabul, they instigated negative influences among Afghans. One character in particular from The Kite Runner is a prime example of the outcome from the Taliban’s negative influences. As he later became
The first is the one that we have explained above which suggests that a language is best acquired the first years of life to reach native linguistic proficiency. In the second context, CPH is used to describe a decline in neural plasticity that is directly related to age and that decline in plasticity can explain the difficulty of
Natural Disasters are very injurious, have you ever had an experience with a divine act. Disasters can cause lots of destruction, and maybe you'll be involved in one someday. Examples of natural disasters include floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis, and other geologic processes. This natural catastrophe is dire and should take into percussion. In “The Perfect Storm” by Sebastian Junger and “Submerged City” by Jacqueline Adams the topic of natural disasters, brought to attention in a science article and informational excerpt.
“Millions of lives were changed in a day by a cruel and wasteful storm” (George W. Bush). George W. Bush said this quote after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast. Hurricanes are deadly natural disasters that affect people every year. They have a very complex way of forming, and each storm is distinguished by its characteristics. After hurricanes, people and the environment are deeply harmed.
CODE SWITCHING ANALYSIS OF ENRIQUE IGLESIAS´ SONG DUELE EL CORAZÓN In this research, we will analyze the reason why code switching is used in English songs sung by Spanish speakers. In order to do so, we will determine the purpose of the singer in using code switching, the effect of English and Spanish songs in bilingual communities and the social and psychological reasons for code switching. According to Poplack (2001) code switching is the mixing of two or more language in the same linguistic discourse. There are two types of code switching: intersentential and intrasentential code switching. Intersentential code switching is understood as the process where code switching occurs at phrasal, sentence or discourse level from one language
