In the everyday, but unspoken give-and-take of human relationships, the "silent language" plays a vitally important role. Here, a leading American anthropologist has analyzed the many qays in which people "talk" to one another without the use of words.The pecking order in a chicken yard, the fierce competition in a school playground, every unwitting gesture and action-this is the vocabulary of the "silent language." According to Dr. Hall, the concepts of space and time are tools with which all human beings may transmit messages. Space, for example, is the outgrowth of an animal's instinctive defense of his lair and is reflected in human society by the office worker's jealous defense of his desk, or the guarded, walled patio of a Latin-American home. Similarly, the concept of time, varying from Western precision to Easter vagueness, is revealed by the businessman who pointedly keeps a client waiting, or the South Pacific islander who murders his neighbor for an injustice suffered twenty years ago."THE SILENT LANGUAGE shows how cultural factors influence the individual behind his back, wihtout his knowledge." -Erich Fromm

Laughing Stock
35,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Laughing Stock was Talk Talk's fifth and final studio album. Released in 1991, it was the only album the band released on the jazz-based Verve Records, after acrimoniously leaving EMI. Like its predecessor, Spirit of Eden, the album featured improvised instrumentation from a large ensemble of musicians, including as many as seven violists on occasion. The recording sessions have attained near-mythical status among underground music fans, Tape Op magazine ran an extensive article detailing the demanding recording sessions, marked by Mark Hollis' perfectionist tendencies, and his use of candles and incense to set the mood. Original bassist Paul Webb had left the band prior to recording.Reviews of the album were generally good, many tended to emphasise the fact that it spanned several genres, with some noting a stylistic kinship with Miles Davis' contemplative In a Silent Way album. Like Spirit of Eden, the lyrical themes are often religious.

The Order (Group)
35,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Order, also known as the Brüder Schweigen or Silent Brotherhood, was an organization active in the United States between 1983 and 1984. The Order described themselves as a white nationalist revolutionary group, and are probably best known for the 1984 murder of radio talk show host Alan Berg. The Order was founded by Robert Jay Mathews in late September 1983 at Mathews' farm near Metaline Falls, Washington. A fundamental goal of The Order was revolution against the government of the United States, which was seen by members of The Order and other white supremacist groups as being controlled by a cabal of prominent Jews. The group was partly modeled on, and was named after, a fictional group in William Luther Pierce's novel The Turner Diaries. The Order's goals included the establishment of a homeland (now the Northwest Territorial Imperative) where Jews and non-whites would be barred.

Julia Kristeva's Theorization of Subjectivity
60,70 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Toni Morrison is the prominent figure in African-American literature whose novels consider the dark side of slaves lives, and its mental, physical effects. As the black people were invisible in American history, Morrison tries to give voice to black people by writing novels about them. With her novels, the black people are not silent anymore, but they become speaking subjects. In Beloved, Seth starts to talk about her experience as a slave, and she uses language to express her inner feelings. As Julia Kristeva, the French critic, mentions the speaking subject (Sujet Parlant) as the one who uses language and gains a sense of identity through language, Beloved becomes a proper study case for the thesis. In The Bluest Eye, Pecola Breedlove is the subject of the culture s beauty standard. As she cannot express herself through language, she becomes melancholic and has a sense of loss. This book intends to apply Kristeva s theories about speaking subject, and melancholia to Morrison s Beloved and The Bluest Eye. In addition, the objection is to show how show how semiotic and symbolic.

Gender Differences in SMS Language
51,30 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Text messaging is a popular way of communicating with friends and family. Short messages with limited character space, sending text messages (or SMS) is revolutionizing the way people spell and altering the linguistic landscape.The author has argued that text messaging is changing the way in which men and women have traditionally communicated. Analyzing gender-defined messages , he found that women are writing longer messages, using more emoticons and abbreviations."In the linguistic marketplace there have always been different values associated with standard and non-standard language, and here we have found results that are paradoxical, that are the opposite of the recognized socio-linguistic gender patterns."Research has established that traditionally, women use standard language more than men, perhaps because it is seen as a way to acquire upward mobility: "Women have historically used standard language when they are social aspirers, or want to be perceived as above their station," Herring said. Men tend to talk more in public moreover, whereas women typically stay silent and are more polite.
