Eurolinguistic Clip on Politeness

Posted by asecoli - April 2, 2012

If you are familiar with German, you might be interested in my latest Eurolinguistic clip, this time I’m talking about politeness strategies.  It is meant to be an appetizer for my book Europas Sprachen und Kulturen im Wandel der Zeit.

If you are also interested in my earlier Eurolinguistic clips, just insert „Eurolinguistischer Clip“ into YouTube’s search line.

Linguistic Edutainment: Foreignish for Freshmen

Posted by asecoli - März 31, 2009

Always in search for new ways of disseminating linguistic knowledge, I tried out a new one last Thursday: linguistic edutainment. I combined lecturing, audience participation (through quizzes) and music for a performance „Ausländisch für Anfänger“ („Foreignish for Freshmen“) at the Volkshochschule Weißenburg. It seemed to have worked as shown by the report in the local newspaper here.

Lecture with David Crystal

Posted by asecoli - Oktober 12, 2008

Last Thursday I attended a lecture given by the renowned and respected linguist David Crystal. The audience was thrilled by his very entertaining, or rather: edutaining, speech. This gives me courage to continue developping ideas for “linguistic edutainment” — also for an expert audience.

Moreover, David Crystal also called for a new kind of Historical English Linguistics, namely Applied Historical English Linguistics. He talked about how he taught Shakespearean pronunciation to a theater group. This is something that I was already asked for a few years ago (however, not for the performance of an entire drama, but for the performance of 2 Shakespearean sonnets). Apart from that, there is more that can be understood under Applied Historical English Linguistics – e.g. teaching knowledge of historical linguistics that teachers need to answer frequent learner questions. This is something I’ve been teaching as a course for several years. The course is also on the English Wikiversity since 2007:
