Children's Language in a Bilingual Community in...
74,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book focuses on children s language in a bilingual community in East Java, Indonesia. It has documented Javanese children s language in relation to their proficiency, use and attitudes in a big city, a small town and a village. The questionnaires, tests, observation and interviews were employed. Children s proficiency in Indonesian is higher than in Javanese. They are not able to manipulate Javanese speech levels properly. Most city children reported using Indonesian with their all interlocutors whereas most village children reported using Javanese. This indicates unnatural intergenerational language transmission in the city. Most children showed negative attitudes towards Javanese, their ethnic language. Javanese experiences domain shifting and is incompatible with the emergence of new domains in the modern time. Unless systematic support is forthcoming, Javanese will be abandoned by Javanese children, originated in the city.

Inbetween Place
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book aims to construct the concept of inbetweenplace. The inbetweens are important in architecturaldesign as transitional realms. Architecture of placedominates the environmental design as place-making.However, inbetween domains are not clarified insignificant place-forms for systemic relationshipsbetween nearby places. The book argues that inbetweenplaces present themselves as living forms ofconnectedness, embodied presence, and significantpauses. By a triangulation from threestandpoints-phenomenological, embodied realism, andneo-structuralism-through case studies, the essenceof inbetween modes of place is emerged out ofcomposite presences of: 1) interval containments, 2)active edges of juxtaposition, and 3) associativelayers with adjacent places. Inbetween places becomecritical intermediary domains creating vital andaesthetic links between neighboring places. Development of the theory of inbetween place couldenlighten design potentials for spatial shifting,sequential-making, and presence of embodied layers ofplaces. This book could benefit architecture studentsand lecturers in design and research and designers tocreate the whole experience of place.

Neuroethics and the Scientific Revision of Comm...
82,84 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is focused on the examination of the particular relationship between developments in neuroscience and commonsense concepts, such as free will, personal identity, privacy, etc., which feature prominently in moral discourse. In the book common sense is recast as an ever-shifting repository of theories from many domains, including science. Utilizing this alternative characterization of common sense, the book reexamines the impact of neuroscience on commonsense moral conceptions.Neuroethics is one of the newest, developing branches of Bioethics. Topics often raised include issues of free will, personal identity and the self, the possible ethical implication of memory manipulation, brain imaging and mind-reading, brain stimulation/enhancement and its impacts on personal identity, and brain death.

"Fantastic . . . an honest, beautifully detailed book and an entertaining read."-DIANA GABALDON, THE WASHINGTON POST"A fantastical treat."-PEOPLE"Simultaneously sweeping and intricate . . . Tompkins's amazing debut novel conjures an epic battle for the soul of Ireland. Filled with papal machination and royal intrigue, magic and mayhem, faeries, Vikings, legates, kings and queens, angels and goddesses, this is one wild and breathless ride."-KAREN JOY FOWLER"Plundering the treasure chest of human myths, from mysterious biblical giants to ferocious Celtic faeries, Tompkins has created a fantasy adventure with the shifting perspectives of dreamscape. A novel rich and strange."-GERALDINE BROOKSWhat became of magic in the world? Who needed to do away with it, and for what reasons? Drawing on myth, legend, fairy tales, and Biblical mysteries, The Last Days of Magic brilliantly imagines answers to these questions, sweeping us back to a world where humans and magical beings co-exist as they had for centuries.Aisling, a goddess in human form, was born to rule both domains and-with her twin, Anya-unite the Celts with the powerful faeries of the Middle Kingdom. But within medieval Ireland interests are divided, and far from its shores greater forces are mustering. Both England and Rome have a stake in driving magic from the Emerald Isle. Jordan, the Vatican commander tasked with vanquishing the remnants of otherworldly creatures from a disenchanted Europe, has built a career on such plots. But increasingly he finds himself torn between duty and his desire to understand the magic that has been forbidden.As kings prepare, exorcists gather, and divisions widen between the warring clans of Ireland, Aisling and Jordan must come to terms with powers given and withheld, while a world that can still foster magic hangs in the balance. Loyalties are tested, betrayals sown, and the coming war will have repercussions that ripple centuries later, in today's world-and in particular for a young graduate student named Sara Hill.The Last Days of Magic introduces us to unforgettable characters who grapple with quests for power, human frailty, and the longing for knowledge that has been made taboo. Mark Tompkins has crafted a remarkable tale-a feat of world-building that poses astonishing and resonant answers to epic questions.

ISBN Deep Equality in an Era of Religious Diver...
83,50 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

While religious conflict receives plenty of attention, the everyday negotiation of religious diversity does not. Questions of how to accommodate religious minorities and of the limits of tolerance resonate in a variety of contexts and have become central preoccupations for many Western democracies. What might we see if we turned our attention to the positive narratives and success stories of the everyday working out of religious difference? Rather than 'tolerance'and 'accommodation', and through the stories of ordinary people, this book traces deep equality, which is found in the respect, humour, and friendship of seemingly mundane interactions. Deep Equality in an Era of Religious Diversity shows that the telling of such stories can create an alternativenarrative to that of diversity as a problem to be solved. It explores the non-event, or micro-processes of interaction that constitute the foundation for deep equality and the conditions under which deep equality emerges, exists, and sometimes flourishes.Through a systematic search for and examination of such narratives, Lori G. Beaman demonstrates the possibility of uncovering, revealing, and recovering deep equality-a recovery that is vital to living in an increasingly diverse society. In achieving deep equality, identities are fluid, shifting in importance and structure as social interaction unfolds. Rigid identity imaginings, especially religious identities, block our vision to the complexities of social life and press us into corners thattrap us in identities that we often ourselves do not recognize, want, or know how to escape. Although the focus of this study is deep equality and its existence and persistence in relation to religious difference, deep equality is located beyond the realm of religion. Beaman draws from the work ofthose whose primary focus is not in fact religion, and who are doing their own 'deep equality' work in other domains, illustrating especially why equality matters. By retelling and exploring stories of negotiation it is possible to reshape our social imaginary to better facilitate what works, which varies from place to place and time to time.

Mass Spectrometry of Proteins and Peptides
126,94 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When the last edition of this book was published in 2000, the field of proteomics was in its infancy. At that time, multidimensional liquid chromatographic separations were being introduced as an alternative to traditional gel-based techniques for separating complex protein and peptide mixtures prior to mass spectrometric detection. Today, this approach – referred to as shotgun proteomics – is considered routine for lar- scale global analyses of protein mixtures. Now in its adolescence, proteomics is fundamentally transforming biological and medical research. Much of this transformation can be attributed to technological advancements, particularly in mass spectrometry. Much wider accessibility of hi- resolution and mass measurement accuracy instrumentation in recent years has ini- ated a new revolution in the field by providing more reliable data and shifting the focus from cataloging proteins to precisely quantifying changes in protein abundance over time and in response to stimuli. Advanced mass spectrometers and novel ion d- sociation schemes such as electron transfer/capture dissociation make it possible to venture boldly into the maze of protein posttranslational modifications, which are an integral component of understanding functional proteomics in the spatial and t- poral domains. Another area that has benefited from these advancements is top-down proteomics, an emerging method essential for characterizing various protein variants that has potentially high impact in biomedical research.
