As a pioneer in computational linguistics, operating within the earliest days of language processing by means of desktop, Margaret Masterman believed that that means, now not grammar, used to be the major to figuring out languages, and that machines may possibly make sure the which means of sentences. This quantity brings jointly Masterman's groundbreaking papers for the 1st time, demonstrating the significance of her paintings within the philosophy of technological know-how and the character of iconic languages.

Useful pedagogical tour of the idiosyncrasies of an Italian Web site. ” “Good to compare material and helps learn work together” The learning experience in 2003 proved more satisfying and more complex than in the previous year. Therefore, the same project structure was maintained in 2004. However, a textbook change was considered desirable as a series of new language textbooks were being developed in Italy for teachers of Italian SLA/FLA adopting input-processing approaches. The textbook chosen for this course changed from Adesso!

Good way of learning lots of vocab” The added dimension in 2003 was greater emphasis upon the communicative aspect of the oral presentation. As their oral performance was formally assessed, learners put more effort into what turned out to be a varied lesson in language and culture to the class as a whole. The standard of the presentations was higher than in 2002, which is perhaps not surprising given the assessment factor. Groups reported enjoyed learning from other groups as well as presenting their own material, thus confirming the relevance of Collis & Moonen’s “contributing student” concept, for example: A further improvement on the previous year proved to be that learners were much more aware of the cultural aspects of the project.

3rd hour: Present your work to the class: each person in the group presents one horoscope.      signposting, scaffolding, evaluation Students are asked to choose between two topics closely associated with themes discussed in class (A-Italian media, B-horoscopes). The information requested is specific, as described above, to avoid learners losing their way in the large amounts of information provided by the Web sites. An indication of time to be spent on each task is given as a self-management cue, and because it is easy for learners to get distracted while exploring Web sites.
