Carl Blyth @ Columbia University - Languaculture: From language-and-culture to language-as-culture
An event of the Columbia Language Resource Center (lrc.columbia.edu), this guest presentation was given at Columbia University on October 30th, 2015 by Professor Carl Blyth of the University of Texas at Austin. Professor Blyth has shared the following summary of his talk: In many approaches to formal instruction, a foreign language is routinely conceptualized as a fixed code of conventionalized form-meaning pairings resembling Saussure’s well known concept of “langue.” In addition, the “language” is represented as a related but separate object with respect to the foreign “culture.” As such, despite the recent 'social turn' in applied linguistics, language study largely ignores the complex relationship between language, culture and thought. In this talk, I will argue that language programs should seek to raise students’ understanding of language use as culturally influenced meaning-making. In keeping with the new complex object of study, I adopt the term ‘languaculture,’ defined as the “cultural aspects of language” (Risager 2006, 2007) or “linguistically mediated cultural meaning and behaviors in interaction” (Diaz 2013). I will exemplify how the concept of languaculture can be applied to classroom teaching with an example of an upper-division French course that employs concept-based instruction (Negueruela 2008, van Compernolle 2014), a pedagogy grounded in sociocultural theory. Finally, I will demonstrate instructional methods and classroom activities that promote languaculture awareness, e.g., metapragmatic discussion, interactional analysis, and student self-reflection. Carl S. Blyth (PhD, Cornell University) is Associate Professor of French Linguistics and Director of the Center of Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (COERLL) at the University of Texas at Austin (USA). His research interests include computer-mediated discourse, cross-cultural and intercultural pragmatics, pedagogical grammar and open educational approaches to language learning. He has published on metalinguistic awareness, the affordances of social reading for L2 literacy development, native and non-native role models for language learning, L2 narrative discourse, online stance taking and interactive frames in L2 discourse. He has authored or co-authored several books and book chapters as well as journal articles in venues such as the Modern Language Journal, CALICO Journal, and Journal of Educational Computing Research. Most recently, he has published a co-edited book with Dale Koike called Dialogue in Multilingual and Multimodal Communities (2015, John Benjamins). He currently serves on the editorial board of Intercultural Pragmatics and Issues in Language Program Direction.

How language shapes the way we think | Lera Boroditsky
There are about 7,000 languages spoken around the world -- and they all have different sounds, vocabularies and structures. But do they shape the way we think? Cognitive scientist Lera Boroditsky shares examples of language -- from an Aboriginal community in Australia that uses cardinal directions instead of left and right to the multiple words for blue in Russian -- that suggest the answer is a resounding yes. "The beauty of linguistic diversity is that it reveals to us just how ingenious and how flexible the human mind is," Boroditsky says. "Human minds have invented not one cognitive universe, but 7,000."

The surprising pattern behind color names around the world
Why so many languages invented words for colors in the same order. Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjO In 1969, two Berkeley researchers, Paul Kay and Brent Berlin, published a book on a pretty groundbreaking idea: that every culture in history, when they developed their languages, invented words for colors in the exact same order. They claimed to know this based off of a simple color identification test, where 20 respondents identified 330 colored chips by name. If a language had six words, they were always black, white, red, green, yellow, and blue. If it had four terms, they were always black, white, red, and then either green or yellow. If it had only three, they were always black, white, and red , and so on. The theory was revolutionary — and it shaped our understanding of how color terminologies emerge.

Non-Native vs Native English Teachers: CULTURE and Language
Website: http://www.virtuallynative.com/blog/culture-language Books: http://www.virtuallynative.com/books Courses: http://www.virtuallynative.com/courses Native speakers are preferred because of their knowledge about their own culture. First of all, I’m not at all sold on the idea of language and culture having strong relationship, the belief that language is influenced by culture, especially when talking about wide-spread languages like Spanish, Russian, French, Arabic and English A native speaker of Spanish from Barcelona and one from La Paz There will most certainly be vocabulary differences related to business and technology but the core language is still Spanish, as a tool of communication is still Spanish, whereas the culture is vastly different. We could probably make a similar comparison between North and Sound Korean language How about a native English speaker from Miami Florida and one from Dublin Ireland I’m really fuzzy on the relationship between culture and language, but for the sake of argument let us agree that they are closely related, to teach a foreign language you need knowledge of the culture. My first question is: who is that English language teacher who would be so bold to say that he or she knows Anglophone culture. An English teacher from Buffalo New York telling you he knows American culture, America, this melting pot, the most multicultural country in the world. Really you know American culture? You speak on behalf of 320 million people What does an ESL teacher born in Canada to Indian parents know about Canadian culture? What is Canadian culture? Even I, born and raised in a small country, would not presume to say that I know Bulgarian culture, stereotype people one way or another, make sweeping generalizations about what Bulgarians are like My second question: is that the job of a language teacher, explaining culture? If you want to know about American or British culture just read books written by experts on the subject, don’t listen to some guy from Birmingham England, save yourself some time and money and buy an online course for instance Or just google it, meanings of idiomatic expressions, etymology of words and so on and so forth. Dictionaries, Wikipedia, forums, it’s all there, for free The last point I want to make is that by becoming the only true global language, English belongs to nobody culturally, socially or any other way Nobody can make cultural, social, ethnic claims on the English language, it belongs to the world now. This culture and native speaker argument is such a ridiculous one, you won’t find anything about culture in my book Virtually Native, but you know what you are going to find, you will find how to use movies to learn English. The truth of the matter is that to master a foreign language you need to listen to a lot of native and non-native speech and the best and most fun way to do that is through movies and TV shows, you practice your listening and learn about culture, Movies are the best way to learn about a culture. In the chapter on Listening I talk a lot about learning English through movies, something native speakers know nothing about

Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Cultural identity is the identity or feeling of belonging to a group. It is part of a person's self-conception and self-perception and is related to nationality, ethnicity, religion, social class, generation, locality or any kind of social group that has its own distinct culture. In this way, cultural identity is both characteristic of the individual but also of the culturally identical group of members sharing the same cultural identity. Various modern cultural studies and social theories have investigated cultural identity. In recent decades, a new form of identification has emerged which breaks down the understanding of the individual as a coherent whole subject into a collection of various cultural identifiers. These cultural identifiers may be the result of various conditions including: location, gender, race, history, nationality, language, sexuality, religious beliefs, ethnicity, aesthetics, and even food. As one author writes, recognizing both coherence and fragmentation: “ categorizations about identity, even when codified and hardened into clear typologies by processes of colonization, state formation or general modernizing processes, are always full of tensions and contradictions. Sometimes these contradictions are destructive, but they can also be creative and positive. ” The divisions between cultures can be very fine in some parts of the world, especially in rapidly changing cities where the population is ethnically diverse and social unity is based primarily on locational contiguity. As a "historical reservoir," culture is an important factor in shaping identity. Since one of the main characteristics of a culture is its "historical reservoir," many if not all groups entertain revisions, either consciously or unconsciously, in their historical record in order to either bolster the strength of their cultural identity or to forge one which gives them precedent for actual reform or change. Some critics of cultural identity argue that the preservation of cultural identity, being based upon difference, is a divisive force in society, and that cosmopolitanism gives individuals a greater sense of shared citizenship. When considering practical association in international society, states may share an inherent part of their 'make up' that gives common ground and an alternative means of identifying with each other. Nations provide the framework for culture identities called external cultural reality, which influences the unique internal cultural realities of the individuals within the nation. Also of interest is the interplay between cultural identity and new media. Rather than necessarily representing an individual's interaction within a certain group, cultural identity may be defined by the social network of people imitating and following the social norms as presented by the media. Accordingly, instead of learning behaviour and knowledge from cultural/religious groups, individuals may be learning these social norms from the media to build on their cultural identity. A range of cultural complexities structure the way individuals operate with the cultural realities in their lives. Nation is a large factor of the cultural complexity, as it constructs the foundation for individual’s identity but it may contrast with ones cultural reality. Cultural identities are influenced by several different factors such as ones religion, ancestry, skin colour, language, class, education, profession, skill, family and political attitudes. These factors contribute to the development of one's identity.

8 Cultural Differences between Native Speakers and English Learners
Culture has a big role to play in the way we speak. It dictates not only which language we use, but also the way we express ourselves with different people. For example, how direct and honest people are generally varies by region. Because of these differences, it is just as important to master culture as it is language. This lesson will help you understand how native speakers think. You will learn how to improve your communication skills depending on whom you are speaking with no matter where you go in the world! Take the quiz on this lesson at http://www.engvid.com/8-cultural-differences-between-native-speakers-and-english-learners/ TRANSCRIPT Hmm. Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo. Hi. James from engVid. I've often said that learning language, a foreign language is great. In this case, you're learning English, so congratulations. But a lot of students, they learn the language, and they kind of forget about the culture, like it doesn't really matter. Being an English speaker, I was born in England, and the culture from England is very different from the culture from Canada, even though they are closely related. So if you can imagine the cultural difference between someone from, say, China and Canada, that would be fantastically different. Well, as they say, as much as we're different, we're the same. But in this case, I want to do a lesson on eight differences in culture that if you're learning the language, which would be important. Now, what I've done is shown the difference between the East and the West, because frankly, you may be from the Middle East or Asia, and you want to do business with Canadians or Americans or British people, and you should see what we think are important. And as well, this helps out English-speaking people about how we should communicate with you when we're trying to teach you English. You like that? Let's go to the board. We have Mr. E, here. He wants to eat his... Let's see. What should he eat? I'm going to suggest that he has a pizza, because that's easy to draw, and anybody who knows me knows I'm a terrible drawer. There you go. Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo. He's having a piz-... Pepperoni pizza. What would you suggest he eat with? A knife or a fork, or chopsticks? Well, it seems obvious: Use your hands. See, when you understand, you can manipulate or use things to your advantage. Let's go to the board. We'll start out with the West, which is where we are. All right? In the West, we say "respect is earned". That means I cannot give you respect or look up to you until you have done something to show me that you deserve my respect or I should give it to you. Just because you say: "Hello, my name is" doesn't mean anything. You have to say: "Hello, my name is, and I have done these things." Because of that and if you do something that helps me, I will give you my respect. Okay? In the East, it's a little different. In the East, what we say is: "respect is due to hierarchy". Hierarchy? Well, just like the word says, think "high", okay? The higher you are-okay?-the higher position you have. So if I come in and say: "I am Generalissimo Kareer." You go: "Oh, I must give you great respect", in the East, just because I am the General. I don't have to be a good General; I just have to be a General. You must give me respect. Well, in the West, you'd have to be a good General that's done a lot of good things. Okay, number two: open debate is encouraged. If you're going: "What is open debate?" Open debate is conversation, but it's more conversation where two ideas are conflicting or they don't go together. You think A, they think B. So you don't both agree necessarily. Maybe you think: "I don't agree with this person, or I don't like everything they say", so you have a debate, which is a conversation to try and change each other's mind. Okay? Open debate in the West is encouraged. If you don't like my idea, I'll say: "Why? What's wrong with it? Why don't you come up with something? Tell me what you think, or tell me what's wrong with my ideas." The challenge, we think, brings a greater result. In other words, if you talk to me and we have a really good open debate, things should be better at the end of the debate. Let's look at the East. In the East, open debate and confrontation is avoided. Partly, this is because in the East... Remember we talked about hierarchy? There's a level or layers? Well, if you question someone and they are on a higher level, you are not showing them the respect they deserve, so it is almost better to do your debate... Or, not even debate, but questions in a less public area. So it is not open debate; more of a private thing with you and that person, and even then, you shouldn't really question them, but ask questions of them. Okay? That's number two. Number three, let's look at individual success and material success. In the West, they matter, it's important. Yes, who I am is important, but it's who I am, just myself. Have I done well in school? Have I made a lot of money?

Using technology in ELT to integrate language and culture: ICC in Brazil and beyond
This is a video presentation at the 5th International Second Language Pedagogies Conference on May 12, 2016 at the University of São Paulo. Abstract: While many English programs in Brazil, and in other countries, rightly focus on language teaching, little about the link between language and culture is explored. Without a doubt, cultural dimensions are, even if implicitly, prevalent in textbooks, teacher discourse, and the media. However, cultural references in English Language Teaching (ELT) are often regarded as being American or British, and the culture of speakers of English from many other countries, including Brazil, is underexplored. In the past few decades, ELT has shifted from language teaching only to include cultural learning, giving way to the concept of communicative competence which relies both on language and intercultural awareness (Celce-Murcia, 2007). The use of technology, more specifically video projects, has been helpful to cross geographical barriers, allowing contact with different cultures easily accessible (Cummins & Early, 2010; Darvin & Norton, 2014; Lotherington & Jenson, 2011; Galante, 2014; Galante, 2015; Toohey, Dagenais, & Schulze, 2012). In this sense, implementing intercultural communicative competence (ICC) in ELT through technology allows learners to engage in meaningful discussions about cultural views while using English for communication. In this paper, I will first introduce the role of culture in communicative competence. Then, I will present one model of intercultural competence (Byram’s 1997) that can be used in language learning. Finally, I will present three video projects that can be used in the English classroom to promote ICC. Benefits and challenges for the implementation of these projects will be discussed. This presentation was based on my article published at the BELT Journal: Galante, A. (2015). Intercultural communicative competence in English language teaching: Towards validation of student identity. Brazilian English Language Teaching Journal, 6(1), 29–39.

Connecting Languages and Cultures Through Interpretation
Professionals working with newcomers rely on verbal and nonverbal communication as the primary tool for forming relationships with newcomers as well as obtaining information from them. However, language and cultural barriers can lead to miscommunication, which can further lead to frustration and act as an additional barrier to accessing needed and appropriate services. Using a professional interpreter can be essential to bridging the divide between communication barriers and interacting effectively with newcomers. Not every interaction involving an interpreter is the same. The role of the individual utilizing the interpreter can vary depending on the setting (in-person, telephone, and group), language (spoken or signed language) and context of the interpretation. This webinar discussed the following: • Issues regarding confidentiality and privacy when using an interpreter • Using interpreters when working with clients who have experienced trauma • Using Interpreters in a medical setting • The logistics of utilizing a spoken or signed language interpreter • How factors such as culture and gender can influence interpretation and communication • Working with interpreters in various settings This webinar featured the following speakers: 1. Annette Floyd, RN(c), MPH, Clinical Coordinator, Bridge Clinic 2. Bryan Corry, Registered ASL-English Interpreter and Accredited Medical Interpreter 3. Mariana Martinez Vieyra, Med, RCC, Provincial Refugee Mental Health Coordinator, Vancouver Association of Survivors of Torture (VAST) 4. Michael Radano, Executive Director, Society of Translators and Interpreters of BC (STIBC) 5. Yolanda Salazar Hobrough, Head of School, Vancouver School of Interpreting and Translation 6.

Local Liberty: Immigration, Language and Culture in the United States.
Shane Goodrich form Local Liberty addresses some common misconceptions regarding 1st generation immigrants (now and historically in the U.S) in regards to learning English and adapting to our cultural norms. The bottom line? There is nothing to worry about. The kids and grandkids of those 1st generation folks will grow up speaking English with native fluency and thus follow the historical pattern (which we have clearly seen for years regarding Latin American countries and the influx from those countries) in regards to assimilation. In the case of Willimantic a phenomenon that demonstrates this language acquisition pattern can easily be observed by spending any significant about of time in the area. You will see little kids helping their parents and/or grandparents with communication (this is also seen in the home, kids will be explaining ideas in terms of English to their elders). They are able to translate for their elders. This allows older monolingual Spanish folks to shop and participate in the wider community, which only serves to further integrate them. .

Kate Hennessy - Repatriation, Digital Media, and Culture in the Virtual Museum
Webcast sponsored by the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre and hosted by the School of Library, Archival, and Information Studies (SLAIS). Many Canadian First Nations and Aboriginal organizations are using digital media to revitalize their languages and assert control over the representation of their cultures. At the same time, museums, academic institutions, and individuals are digitizing their ethnographic collections to make them accessible to originating communities. In this presentation I will explore how the term "virtual repatriation" is being applied to the digitization and return of heritage to Aboriginal communities, and draw attention to the opportunities, challenges, and critiques associated with digitization, circulation, and remix of Aboriginal cultural heritage. I will discuss recent projects including the collaborative production of a Virtual Museum of Canada exhibit with the Doig River First Nation, a Dane-zaa community in northeastern British Columbia, and a current collaborative production of a virtual exhibit with members of the Inuvialuit community in the western Arctic and curators at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. I will show that while access to cultural heritage in digital collections can facilitate the articulation of intellectual property rights to digital cultural heritage----including the right to restrict circulation----it also amplifies the difficulty of enforcing those rights. Kate Hennessy is an Assistant Professor specializing in Media at Simon Fraser University's School of Interactive Arts and Technology (SIAT). She has a PhD in Anthropology from the University of British Columbia and an MA in the Anthropology of Media from the University of London, School of Oriental and African Studies. As the director of the Making Culture Lab at SIAT, her research explores the role of digital technology in the documentation and safeguarding of cultural heritage, and in the mediation of culture, history, objects, and subjects in new forms. Her video and multimedia works investigate documentary methodologies to address Indigenous and settler histories of place and space. She is a founding member of the Ethnographic Terminalia Curatorial Collective, an international group exploring the borders of anthropological, curatorial, and artistic practice (http://ethnographicterminalia.org). As assistant editor of the journal Visual Anthropology Review, she designed its first multimedia volume. Her work has been published in journals such as American Indian Quarterly, Museum Anthropology Review, and Visual Anthropology Review. She was a Trudeau Foundation Scholar from 2006-2010, a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada Graduate Scholar from 2005-2009, a Canadian Polar Commission Scholar in 2006-2007, and a Commonwealth Scholar in 2001-2002.

Indo-European migrations | Wikipedia audio article
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Indo-European migrations Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= Indo-European migrations were the migrations of pastoral peoples speaking the Proto-Indo-European language (PIE), who departed from the Yamnaya and related cultures in the Pontic–Caspian steppe, starting at c. 4000 BCE. Their descendants spread throughout Europe and parts of Asia, forming new cultures with the people they met on their way, including the Corded Ware culture in Northern Europe and the Vedic culture in the Indian subcontinent. These migrations ultimately seeded the cultures and languages of most of Europe, Greater Iran, and much of the Indian subcontinent (and subsequently resulted in the largest and most broadly spoken language family in the world). Modern knowledge of these migrations is based on data from linguistics, archaeology, anthropology and genetics. Linguistics describes the similarities between various languages, and the linguistic laws at play in the changes in those languages (see Indo-European studies). Archaeological data describes the spread of the Proto-Indo-European culture and language in several stages: from the Proto-Indo-European homeland (probably situated in the Pontic–Caspian steppe), into Western Europe, Central, South and (very sporadically) Eastern Asia by migrations and by language shift through elite-recruitment as described by anthropological research. Recent genetic research has a growing contribution to the understanding of the historical relations between various historical cultures. The Indo-European languages and cultures spread in various stages. Early migrations from c. 4200–3000 BCE brought archaic proto-Indo-European into the lower Danube valley, Anatolia, and the Altai region.Proto-Celtic and Proto-Italic probably developed in and spread from Central Europe into western Europe after new Yamnaya migrations into the Danube Valley, while Proto-Germanic and Proto-Balto-Slavic may have developed east of the Carpathian mountains, at present-day Ukraine, moving north and spreading with the Corded Ware culture in Middle Europe (third millennium BCE). Alternatively, a European branch of Indo-European dialects, termed "North-west Indo-European" and associated with the Beaker culture, may have been ancestral to not only Celtic and Italic, but also to Germanic and Balto-Slavic.The Indo-Iranian language and culture emerged at the Sintashta culture (c. 2100–1800 BCE), at the eastern border of the Yamnaya horizon and the Corded ware culture, growing into the Andronovo culture (c. 1800–800 BCE). Indo-Aryans moved into the Bactria–Margiana Archaeological Complex (c. 2300–1700 BCE) and spread to the Levant (Mitanni), northern India (Vedic people, c. 1500 BCE), and China (Wusun). The Iranian languages spread throughout the steppes with the Scyths and into Iran with the Medes, Parthians and Persians from ca. 800 BCE.

[RANT] Different Languages and Culture Identity
Welcome to my rant, mature and grown up. Today's rant is about language of cultures. People are dense about what language one should speak and the dying crisis of someones language becoming non existent. Heritage is often connected with language but people shouldn't view language as that. Language is to communicate ideas through discourse or media via technology such as the internet. The problem is it should not matter what language you speak, for example one hundred percent of the population speaking English being a concern for minority groups but it does not matter what language you speak in the first place. If you have the capability to converse that is all that should matter. Certain populations act proud about what they speak and try to preserve that. The reality is that the language can only be spoke upon the local populace. Humans are social beings and in today's world will require communication in the international language of English. Cultures maintain their useless native tongues to talk with themselves and they never grow. They will not benefit from technological advances if they are in their own puny country or become a problem if the culture is in a majority country such as Natives in conquered lands. To end my rant about cultures inferior languages, you speak because you need to socialize, live and exchange ideas and not because of your culture. When your language becomes obsolete you need to spend time adapting to change instead of keeping things the same.
