LiBRI: The Dynamism of Free Combinations Concerning a Part of Speech: The Adjective in French

This paper is related to peculiar aspects of French grammar, namely the adjectival behaviour along its evolution from free combinations. The analysis starts from the status of the adjective as modifier of a noun to the one of being a modifier of itself (nominalization), to verbal modifier. The author of this paper, Daniela Bordea, provides linguists and grammarians with a careful study of the values of the adjective, from the so called free combinations to free forms. Also, there is defined and explained the adjectival release process followed by the analysis of the characteristics and values of the adjectival release placed in contrast with those of the adjective in free combination.

    Nadia-Nicoleta Morărașu and Luminița Drugă acknowledge not only the importance and utility of technical translation, but also the risks that this transfer of meaning imply if the translation is not accurate. The two authors aim at clearly establishing the hazards implied by an excessive usage of technical jargon, the evaluation of specific risks and the proposal of certain precaution measures. Risk-assessment is considered to belong both to technical jargon and business speak and it is identified as a five-stage process including: identifying the hazards; identifying who may be harmed and the type of harms; evaluating the risks and deciding on…

    A novel such as “Nineteen Eighty-Four” has determined critics to never stop analysing in as many angles as possible this masterpiece, so as to reveal the most profound meanings that George Orwell wanted to transmit at that time. Besides the first literary layer that may be observed by readers, namely the political one, the two authors of this article, Nabil A. Jalil and Arbaayah Ali Termizi, discover a hidden side of this great novel: the philosophical one. The actions of Winston, the main character, follow a similar path that Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus developed in their philosophical discourse concerning…

    The explanation of the relationship between metacognitive strategies, learner characteristics and willingness to communicate is a highly important aspect when speaking about foreign language teaching and learning processes. Considering this, Gholam-Reza Abbasian and Bahareh Hoodin Shad, carried out a study concerning the interaction between these elements and their possible influence in teaching and learning English as a foreign language. First to be discussed are the learning strategies as they are placed at the basis of a successful learning and, according to O’Malley and Chamot they are divided into three main categories: cognitive, metacognitive and social/affective.

LiBRI: Risk-Assessment for Stylistic Problems in Writing and Translating Technical Texts

Nadia-Nicoleta Morărașu and Luminița Drugă acknowledge not only the importance and utility of technical translation, but also the risks that this transfer of meaning imply if the translation is not accurate. The two authors aim at clearly establishing the hazards implied by an excessive usage of technical jargon, the evaluation of specific risks and the proposal of certain precaution measures.

Risk-assessment is considered to belong both to technical jargon and business speak and it is identified as a five-stage process including: identifying the hazards; identifying who may be harmed and the type of harms; evaluating the risks and deciding on precautions; recording findings and implementing them; reviewing assessment and updating if necessary. Then, the two professors attempt to transfer these concepts into the field of language studies so as to perform a reliable risk-assessment for technical writing and, subsequently, for technical translation.

    BRAIN journal has recently published its latest volume Brain Functors: A mathematical model of intentional perception and action by David Ellerman. Classification hypothesis has foundational significance since it gives applied lenses to describe what is essential and widespread in arithmetic - with adjunctions being the essential lens. On the off chance that adjunctions are so critical in arithmetic, then maybe they will confine ideas of some significance in the observational sciences. In any case, the uses of adjunctions have been hampered by an excessively prohibitive plan that maintains a strategic distance from heteromorphisms or hets. By reformulating an adjunction utilizing…
