Michael Halliday - Language evolving: Some systemic functional reflections on the history of meaning
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, and hosted by the Department of Language and Literacy Education and the Faculty of Education as part of the plenary session at the 37th International Systemic Functional Congress, Halliday poses the evolution of language seems a simple enough concept: it arose in the work of scholars studying the history of linguistic forms (phonology, morphology, some syntax). But a language is a semiotic system; more importantly a semogenic, or meaning-creating, system; and meaning also has a history - a highly complex one. Every language has, in Sapir's term, a "certain cut", its own (constantly evolving) ways of meaning; yet most of its features are shared with other languages. We seek out the history of meaning along various routes: in the history of the form of language, in the history of the people that speak it, in the history of the locale where it is spoken, and in the history of its varied cultural contexts. Consider English and Chinese, as two widely spoken and widely-documented languages. The history of meaning in English includes changes that took place in ancient Greek and in ancient and medieval Latin, even though English is not "descended from" these languages; Chinese has undergone somewhat less upheaval, but the history of Mandarin involved contact with ways of meaning derived from Sanskrit and from Mongolian, both also "unrelated" to Chinese. I think that, to study the history of meaning, we take account of both child language development and the emergence of learned forms of discourse; we maintain a trinocular perspective; and we seek systemic and functional (especially metafunctional) explanations of semiotic patterns in discourse.

Peterson has made it his profession. In addition to creating "Dothraki" and "High Valyrian" for the popular TV series Game of Thrones®, he has designed languages for Defiance, The Shannara Chronicles, The 100, and Emerald City. In his lecture, "New Media Linguistics: Developing Languages for Game of Thrones," Peterson will provide a rare glimpse into the fascinating process of language creation for fictional purposes, and will review the cultural, historical, linguistic, and aesthetic aspects that are involved in it. With degrees in linguistics from Berkeley and UC San Diego, Peterson has closely studied the structures of languages world-wide and offers information and advice about creating naturalistic languages as an artform. His 2014 book Living Language Dothraki teaches fans how to speak this nomadic tongue, and in The Art of Language Invention (2015) he offers a rigorous manual of linguistic principles for would-be "conlangers.” Sponsored by the Humanities Project along with the Neilly Lecture Series, River Campus Libraries, and the Sara Nainzadeh Fund.

What does STRUCTURAL LINGUISTICS mean? STRUCTURAL LINGUISTICS meaning - STRUCTURAL LINGUISTICS definition - STRUCTURAL LINGUISTICS explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Structural linguistics is an approach to linguistics originating from the work of Swiss linguist Ferdinand de Saussure and is part of the overall approach of structuralism. De Saussure's Course in General Linguistics, published posthumously in 1916, stressed examining language as a static system of interconnected units. He is thus known as a father of modern linguistics for bringing about the shift from diachronic (historical) to synchronic (non-historical) analysis, as well as for introducing several basic dimensions of semiotic analysis that are still important today, such as syntagmatic and paradigmatic analysis (or 'associations' as Saussure was still calling them). Structural linguistics involves collecting a corpus of utterances and then attempting to classify all of the elements of the corpus at their different linguistic levels: the phonemes, morphemes, lexical categories, noun phrases, verb phrases, and sentence types. Two of Saussure's key methods were syntagmatic and paradigmatic analysis, which define units syntactically and lexically, respectively, according to their contrast with the other units in the system. The foundation of structural linguistics is a sign, which in turn has two components: a "signified" is an idea or concept, while the "signifier" is a means of expressing the signified. The "sign" is thus the combined association of signifier and signified. Signs can be defined only by being placed in contrast with other signs, which forms the basis of what later became the paradigmatic dimension of semiotic organization (i.e., collections of terms/entities that stand in opposition). This idea contrasted drastically with the idea that signs can be examined in isolation from a language and stressed Saussure's point that linguistics must treat language synchronically. Paradigmatic relations hold among sets of units that (in the early Saussurian renditions) exist in the mind, such as the set distinguished phonologically by variation in their initial sound cat, bat, hat, mat, fat, or the morphologically distinguished set ran, run, running. The units of a set must have something in common with one another, but they must contrast too, otherwise they could not be distinguished from each other and would collapse into a single unit, which could not constitute a set on its own, since a set always consists of more than one unit. Syntagmatic relations, in contrast, are concerned with how units, once selected from their paradigmatic sets of oppositions, are 'chained' together into structural wholes. One further common confusion here is that syntagmatic relations, assumed to occur in time, are anchored in speech and are considered either diachronic (confusing syntagmatic with historical) or are part of parole ("everyday speech": confusing syntagmatic with performance and behaviour and divorcing it from the linguistic system), or both.

David Peterson - Design Principles Behind Authentic Language Creation​
From shows like HBO's Game of Thrones and movies like Avatar, you may have heard of conlanging: the intentional construction of language. Designing a language can seem like a daunting task, but creating a functional language is rather simple, albeit time consuming. The languages created for Game of Thrones and other shows like The 100, Defiance, and Bright go beyond mere functionality, though. In this talk David Peterson will describe his process of authentic language creation, and detail how it applies both to spoken and written language invention. David Peterson is a language creator and author. He received a BA in English and a BA in Linguistics from UC Berkeley in 2003, and an MA in Linguistics from UC San Diego in 2005. Starting with HBO's Game of Thrones in 2009, David has been a professional language creator for almost ten years, and has created languages for almost 20 television shows, movies, and video games, including the CW's The 100, Marvel's Doctor Strange, and Netflix's Bright. In 2015 he released The Art of Language Invention with Penguin Books, a detailed guide to creating an authentic constructed language.

The comparative method may be contrasted with the method of internal reconstruction, in which the internal development of a single language is inferred by the analysis of features within that language. Ordinarily both methods are used together to reconstruct prehistoric phases of languages, to fill in gaps in the historical record of a language, to discover the development of phonological, morphological, and other linguistic systems, and to confirm or refute hypothesised relationships between languages. The comparative method was developed over the 19th century. Key contributions were made by the Danish scholars Rasmus Rask and Karl Verner and the German scholar Jacob Grimm. The first linguist to offer reconstructed forms from a proto-language was August Schleicher, in his Compendium der vergleichenden Grammatik der indogermanischen Sprachen, originally published in 1861. Here is Schleicher's explanation of why he offered reconstructed forms: In the present work an attempt is made to set forth the inferred Indo-European original language side by side with its really existent derived languages. Besides the advantages offered by such a plan, in setting immediately before the eyes of the student the final results of the investigation in a more concrete form, and thereby rendering easier his insight into the nature of particular Indo-European languages, there is, I think, another of no less importance gained by it, namely that it shows the baselessness of the assumption that the non-Indian Indo-European languages were derived from Old-Indian (Sanskrit).

Is ‘global’ English a neoimperialist project?
On Wednesday 15 February 2017, 13.15-14.45 Robert Phillipson and Tove Skutnabb-Kangas held a lecture entitled: "Is ‘global’ English compatible with local language ecologies and principles of language rights, or a neoimperialist project?" at the Centre for Languages and Literature (SOL, room H339). The lecture was jointly organised by the Centre for Languages and Literature and SASNET at Lund University. Abstract: The forces behind ‘global’ English and its increased use at all levels of education in many countries need critical scrutiny. English is fraudulently marketed by the British and American governments, with World Bank complicity, as though it is a universal ‘basic skill’. It conflates English with development, and in reality aims at consolidating Anglo-American power. There are clear examples of this in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. This contemporary surge represents a variant of worldwide efforts to eliminate the languages of Indigenous peoples and linguistic minorities. Such policies can be seen as a crime against humanity and constituting linguistic genocide. Creating a balance between dominant languages, nationally and internationally, and maintaining the vitality of local, minority and Indigenous language ecologies and principles of linguistic human rights is a major challenge, in South Asian countries as elsewhere.

Explorations in the semantics and pragmatics of discourse. London: Longman, 1977, Strategies of Discourse Comprehension. with Walter Kintsch. New York: Academic Press, 1983, News as Discourse. Hillsdale, NJ: Erlbaum, 1988. Annotation: In this lecture I'll tell about the progress of my new book Discourse and Knowledge by summarizing some results of the respective chapters of this multidiscpliinary study. I propose a new, relativist and naturalistic approach to knowledge defined as beliefs shared and justfied by the criteria of an epistemic community. I summarize how knowledge is involved in the cognitive processes of discourse production and comprehension, and how knowledge as a form of social cognition, just like attitudes and ideologies is shared in a sociocultural epistemic community or in specific social groups, for instance through epistemic institutions such as schools and the mass media. Since knowledge depends on the criteria of epistemic communities, an anthropological approach studies the cultural variation of knowledge(s) across the world. Finally, the linguistic and discourse analytical approach to knowledge goes beyond the usual study of the expression or presupposition of knowledge in sentences -- as is the case for the study of topic and focus, evidentials, modalities or presuppositions -- and details how knowledge is managed in discourse for the establishment of global (discursive) topic and focus, local and global coherence, various kinds of description, granularity, and many other properties of knowledge based on the expression of semantic situation models controlled by pragmatic context models.

ELT | Role of Reform Movement in the History  Language Teaching | Bengali Lecture | PRC Foundation
Reform stands for making a change, improvement, repairing or rectification and movement means going opposite to or reaction against an established idea or rule due to its drawbacks or monopolies. In the second half of 19th century, GTM was to face criticism due to its insufficient techniques and outputs for second language development. As a result, a “Reform Movement” was a must for language teaching and it happened and came into being with certain principles. The principles of ‘Reform Movement’ have been playing a vital role in the history of language teaching with a triumph march since its birth.

"The Programming Language Called Classical Chinese" by David Branner
In this talk I present some of the ideas of context-free grammars and type systems, using Classical Chinese (the written language of common East Asian tradition) for the examples. Why Classical Chinese? Because you can fully describe the syntax of Classical Chinese using simple cases of these bedrock programming-language principles. What an astonishing and beautiful fact! As I introduce the principles I will illustrate them with actual examples, so that the discussion stays concrete. But you will need no prior exposure to Chinese; I will supplement Chinese script with tokens that monolingual English speakers can read. This talk comes out of a long gestation — years of working to make Classical Chinese accessible to learners in their early stages, and then coming to grips with theoretical computer science for myself. My aims are for the listener to observe how to apply basic ideas of context-free grammar and type systems to a highly unusual subject — and in the process to learn the outline of the elegant logical system at the core of Classical Chinese. David Branner David Branner is a student of Chinese language in its many forms and time-periods. After an academic career in the subject, he retired very early from his university and eventually found a more satisfying way to prosecute this quest by working as a coder. While following this path he spent the better part of two years at the Recurse Center in New York.

How to prepare for CBSE NET in Linguistics- Interview with Avinash, JRF Topper from JNU
How to prepare for CBSE NET in Linguistics WWW.GETJRF.COM PROVIDES YOU ALL WHAT IS NEEDED FOR THE PREPARATION OF UGC NET EXAM FROM MATERIALS, PAPERS, QUESTION PAPERS AND TUTORIALS Transcript Q. About myself. A. Well, I was born and brought up in Faizabad, U.P. in a family where education is of utmost importance. After completing my secondary education in science, I got admission in History (Honors) in Zakir Husain Delhi College, University of Delhi. While studying History, I realized that there are many interdisciplinary courses which might help us understand some ‘untouched’ but important concepts of ‘traditional’ subjects like History, Sociology, Philosophy, Economics and Polity etc. In fact, these interdisciplinary subjects emerged only because of certain needs of these traditional subjects. And this is how and why I landed up in Linguistics. Now, I am about to complete my M.A. in Linguistics from JNU and I am determined to prove the relevance of Linguistics in traditional subjects after I get into M.Phil/Ph.D. Q. 1st paper. A. According to my perception, it is the first paper of UGC which decides whether you are going to get only NET or JRF as well. In short, first paper draws a line between NET and JRF. As far reading materials are concerned, I did not take help of any specific books as this paper consist of questions of general knowledge, aptitude, general reasoning, elementary mathematics and current affairs and I believe newspapers are sufficient to answer most of GK questions. Other questions have their answer in themselves as questions from passages, statistics, reasoning and mathematics require no rocket science and a little practice for few weeks will do it. One can always skip some questions you don’t like as you need to answer only 50 questions out of 60 and I suggest everyone to use this ‘life line’ wisely. Q. 2nd paper A. 2nd paper consists of basic concepts and principles of respective disciplines. In Linguistics, questions are asked from core courses like Morphology, Phonology, introductory psycholinguistics, introductory sociolinguistics etc. In this paper there are certain questions about the development of the discipline, like on a timeline. Thus it is always helpful to read about eminent scholars of respective field i.e. about Linguists in my case and their important concepts. It will be good if one could remember some of the path breaking books in Linguistics and their significance. Victoria Fromkin’s An Introduction to Language is certainly helpful for both- paper 2 and paper3. Q. 3rd paper A. For 3rd paper one requires even deeper knowledge of discipline. Advanced level of courses like psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, syntax, computational linguistics, stylistics, typology, historical linguistics etc. constitute significant proportion of questions in this paper. Unfortunately, there is no specific book available which could cover all these section. Hence, one needs to look for different online as well as offline sources for different sub disciplines. George Yule’s A Study of Language will be helpful for this paper. Q. Internet. A. As I said, electronic media is very important especially in my discipline, one cannot avoid e-help. Apart from Wikipedia, there are other useful websites especially Stanford University’s site where one can look for help. Different online quizzes are also available. Q. Mock test. A. Though, I didn’t get any model paper anywhere, previous years’ question paper available on UGC’s site helped me a lot as one may grasp the idea of question formation as well as current trend of paper setting from these papers. Q. Strategy A. With a right strategy, I guess three weeks are more than enough to get JRF in linguistics but one should have utilized his/her class studies accordingly for this purpose. Selection of proper reading materials is also very important. Well organized and well planned study will be fruitful. Q. Hours A. I would say it doesn’t matter at all as there was no fixed time-table or schedule for me. I prefer ‘smart work’ over ‘hard work’. But this is my personal opinion and people are free to disagree. Q. Pattern A. I believe that a certain number of descriptive questions can improve the quality of this exam. I also believe that objective type of questions can check our factual knowledge only and it cannot look into our understanding of the concepts and our opinions as we have to select from four fixed options and one may have a totally different but equally correct fifth approach or opinion. For some discipline, I believe, Descriptive pattern is a necessity. Q. what I learnt A. If you don’t wanna be part of crowd then you need to be different. My success lies in this difference as I had a different and may be a better and convenient approach

Christian Matthiessen --  Language evolving: Notes towards a semiotic history of humanity
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, and hosted by the Department of Language and Literacy Education and the Faculty of Education as part of the plenary session at the 37th International Systemic Functional Congress, Matthiessen poses the theme that is "language evolving". This can be interpreted either very generally or more technically. (1) Taken very generally, this could mean language changing in any of the three time-frames that have been explored in systemic functional linguistics phylogenetic change (language changing in the human species, or in human societies, over a long period of time ranging from generations to history of the human species), ontogenetic change (language changing in human individuals [seen as organisms or as persons] in the course of a lifetime, or logogenetic change (language changing in the course of the unfolding of text). (2) Taken more technically (i.e. with "evolution" in the technical sense introduced by Darwin), this means language changing phylogenetically language evolving as part of the evolution of the human species (in biological terms) and as part of the evolution of human groups (in social terms), these two being complementary aspects of human evolution. However, Matthiesson focuses on the narrower, technical sense of "language evolving". More specifically, he explores the "big history" of humans - a deep time view of human evolution in linguistic, or more generally in semiotic terms, starting with the emergence of the human line and moving up to the present.
