Il est dit que "les mots sont le miroir du cœur" et sont aussi le reflet de mes pensées. Ainsi, si je veux avoir un langage rempli de Liberté, de Sagesse et d'Amour, il y a des mots ou du moins une certaine forme de langage dont je dois tenir compte. Ce livre se veut un outil pratique. Il me donne la connaissance de certains mots reliés à des principes spirituels qui peuvent convenir dans mon langage courant avec ma famille, mes amis, mes relations de travail, de même que lorsque je m'adresse en public. …

Living and Dying in a Virtual World: Digital Kinships, Nostalgia, and Mourning in Second Life

Living and Dying in a Virtual World: Digital Kinships, Nostalgia, and Mourning in Second Life by Margaret Gibson
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 160 Pages | ISBN : 331976098X | 8.05 MB

This book takes readers into stories of love, loss, grief and mourning and reveals the emotional attachments and digital kinships of the virtual 3D social world of Second Life. At fourteen years old, Second Life can no longer be perceived as the young, cutting-edge environment it once was, and yet it endures as a place of belonging, fun, role-play and social experimentation. In this volume, the authors argue that far from facing an impending death, Second Life has undergone a transition to maturity and holds a new type of significance. As people increasingly explore and co-create a sense of self and ways of belonging through avatars and computer screens, the question of where and how people live and die becomes increasingly more important to understand. This book shows how a virtual world can change lives and create forms of memory, nostalgia and mourning for both real and avatar based lives.

Private Education in China: Achievement and Challenge

Private Education in China: Achievement and Challenge by Haitao Zhou
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 232 Pages | ISBN : 9811044082 | 7.97 MB

This book takes an in-depth look at the development of the private education sector in modern China. Readers will find valuable data and materials never before presented in such an accessible and transparent way, together with analyses of the major changes and challenges in the course of this development. The book is organized both chronologically and by topic: it employs a past-present-future order that unites the general arrangement; at the same time, each specific subject is approached historically, not only to show the origins of the problem, but also to link it with the historical-comparative context, in which the evaluation of alternative policy choices become highly viable.

Utility and Application of Language Corpora

Utility and Application of Language Corpora by Niladri Sekhar Dash
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 (2019 Edition) | 308 Pages | ISBN : 981131800X | 11.95 MB

This book discusses some of the basic issues relating to corpus generation and the methods normally used to generate a corpus. Since corpus-related research goes beyond corpus generation, the book also addresses other major topics connected with the use and application of language corpora, namely, corpus readiness in the context of corpus sanitation and pre-editing of corpus texts; the application of statistical methods; and various text processing techniques. Importantly, it explores how corpora can be used as a primary or secondary resource in English language teaching, in creating dictionaries, in word sense disambiguation, in various language technologies, and in other branches of linguistics. Lastly, the book sheds light on the status quo of corpus generation in Indian languages and identifies current and future needs.
