Buscou-se neste estudo analisar quantitativamente, por meio de um instrumento de investigação indireto, o Matched Guise, as atitudes de alunos adolescentes de 1as, 2as e 3as séries do ensino médio frente à língua inglesa, utilizando-se fábulas de Esopo. Verificou-se por meio de modelos lineares gerais (GLM) a influência de variáveis como o idioma do texto e a idade do sujeito na atribuição de status e solidariedade. Observou-se que interações entre algumas variáveis, tais como as interações entre o sexo do aluno e o do falante, também exerceram influência nas variáveis dependentes. Investigou-se a correlação entre as atribuições de status e solidariedade ao falante e o desempenho dos sujeitos por meio da análise das notas finais na disciplina inglês. Por fim, questiona-se se é possível atingir a neutralidade preconizada pela Técnica de Matched Guise.; The purpose of this study was to analyze quantitatively, by means of an indirect investigation instrument, the Matched Guise, the attitudes of teenager students in High School grades 09, 10 and 11 towards the English language, using Aesop’s fables. It was found, through the use of general linear models that such variables as language and subject age influenced the rating of status and solidarity. It was observed that interaction among some variables...

O Haiti e a Luisiana são ligados por vários paralelos sociohistóricos. Ambos sofreram colonização francesa e espanhola, sendo mais marcados pela primeira. Nos dois lugares foi implantada a economia plantation na qual a mão-de-obra era de escravos do oeste da África. A organização social e demográfica resultante - isto é, uma população majoritariamente escrava e linguisticamente diversa que tinha contato limitado com os senhores franceses - levou à formação de dois crioulos franceses distintos e estruturalmente parecidos. Contudo, apesar dessas semelhanças do período colonial, atualmente, o crioulo haitiano é o crioulo mais falado do mundo e o crioulo da Luisiana está moribundo. Neste trabalho, examinam-se quais foram os motivos sociohistóricos do período pós-colonial que resultaram nessas duas realidades contrastantes, tratando da política linguística, especificamente a legislação linguística, a padronização e a educação, e de questões acerca de atitudes linguísticas, além de considerações mais práticas - geográficas e socioeconômicas - envolvidas na formação da vitalidade de uma língua.; Haiti and Louisiana are connected via a number of sociohistorical parallels. Both were colonized by the French and the Spanish...

Mother tongue education is said to be best to the child. But what do parents and people involved think about this practice and its consequences? The paper investigates language attitudes towards mother tongue education in Uganda and provides a new perspective on educational language policies in Africa. Using language attitudes as heuristic enables to investigate people’s attitudes towards mother tongue education and argues that some approaches might be considered paternalistic.

L’étude des attitudes linguistiques, entreprise par la sociolinguistique et la psychologie sociale, a permis de confirmer que toutes les variétés linguistiques ne reçoivent pas le même traitement. La langue standard, étant en règle générale la langue du groupe de prestige, bénéficie d’une reconnaissance sociale en comparaison avec les variétés non-standards ou minoritaires, qui, au contraire, suscitent généralement des attitudes plus négatives. Dans ce mémoire, nous analysons les attitudes linguistiques des mexicains à l’égard du slang mexicain. La méthodologie du projet comporte deux parties principales. Dans un premier temps, des conversations spontanées et naturelles entre locuteurs de slang sont enregistrées. Des fragments de ces enregistrements sont ensuite écoutés par un groupe de sujets qui, simultanément, remplit un questionnaire évaluant leurs attitudes linguistiques dirigées envers l’usage du slang ainsi qu’envers les individus qui le parle. L’analyse statistique des résultats permet de faire quelques constats : Il y a une différence très significative entre la façon dont les dimensions de solidarité et de prestige sont jugées, les pointages donnés aux aspects tels que l’intelligence et le succès des locuteurs de slang s’avérant beaucoup plus bas que ceux accordés aux aspects reliés à leur personnalité...

non-peer-reviewed; This thesis looks at the use of child created video as an aid in the learning and retention of the Irish language in an Irish Primary School. It also investigated the effect of using these child created videos on the motivation of children to learn the Irish language. The methodology used in this research utilised a Task Based Language Learning and Teaching model. The study found that the use of child created video was beneficial to children enabling them to develop greater skills in automaticity, fluency and language output in the target language. The study also found that the actual creation of the videos by the children led to greater retention of the language in comparison with vocabulary learned using traditional methods. The new methodology also led to increased levels of motivation to learn the Irish language amongst the children. Many reported they were more positive about learning the language after the introduction of the new methodology. The attitudes and beliefs of children, teachers and parents towards the Irish language were also explored to better understand the current standing of the Irish language in Ireland. The study found that the attitudes of teachers towards the Irish language was primarily positive though many would prefer to see a greater emphasis on oral language development at primary level. Parents were found to have a complex mix of attitudes towards the Irish language. While many could express positive reasons to learn the language a substantial minority made very little effort to speak the actual language.

This thesis investigates sociolinguistic variation in the Fijian village of Waitabu. The aim is to investigate how particular uses, functions and varieties of language relate to social patterns and modes of interaction. ·The investigation focuses on the various ways of speaking which characterise the Waitabu repertoire, and attempts to explicate basic sociolinguistic principles and norms for contextually appropriate behaviour.The general purpose is to explicate what the outsider needs to know to communicate appropriately in Waitabu community. Chapter one discusses relevant literature and the theoretical perspective of the thesis. I also detail the fieldwork setting, problems and restrictions, and thesis plan. Chapter two provides the necessary background information to this study, describing the geographical, demographical and sociohistorical setting. Description is given of the contemporary language situation, structure of Fijian (Bouma dialect), and Waitabu social structure and organisation. In Chapter 3, the kinship system which lies at the heart of Waitabu social organisation, and kin-based sociolinguistic roles are analysed. This chapter gives detailed description of the kin categories and the established modes of sociolinguistic behaviour which are associated with various kin-based social identities. Chapter 4 focuses on discourse of everyday life...

This study involves the examination of the attitudes of a group of Mexican American students towards learning English as a second language in a structured immersion program. It also analyzes the extent to which these attitudes differ in relation to the variables of gender and performance in English. Participants were 110 students (girls, n = 56, boys, n = 54) in grades 8-12 in the Compton Unified School District (California, USA). One noteworthy finding of this study is the appearance of a general factor that defines the homogeneous structure of the instruments used in the assessment of student attitudes toward second language learning. In addition, a further factor, which the authors have termed ???pressure to learn English??? was also identified. This factor is manifested in a high average correlation of all variables. It reveals the motivation to learn a second language in the context of vital necessity where learning English is a key element for the integration in a territory in which the use of Spanish is prohibited by law.

Approved for public release, distribution unlimited; The prestige of the Russian language has changed since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Nicholas Ostler, a linguist and language historian, categorized four reasons why an imperial language would remain after the colonizing power leaves. He applied this theory to Russian in the states of the former Soviet Union. He found that only Belarus maintains a significant enough number of Russian speakers to fall into one of his categories. I find that the Russian language is prestigious in all fourteen former Soviet Union states because of its use regionally as a lingua franca. I begin with a review of language policy from Tsarist times through today's Russia. I follow this with a demographic survey of the major languages in each of the 14 former Soviet states, as well as a linguistic comparison of Russian with each republic's titular language. Next, using census data and language attitudes revealed through surveys and polls, I show how Russian is still a prestigious language in all FSU states, despite a decrease in the number of speakers, especially in younger generations. I conclude with a review of Ostler's four categories and reasons why I call Russian a dying regional lingua franca.; US Air Force (USAF) author.

The purpose of this research was to investigate the nature of listeners' attitudes toward foreign-accented speech and the manner in which those attitudes are formed. This study measured 165 participants' implicit and explicit attitudes toward US- and foreign-accented audio stimuli. Implicit attitudes were measured with an audio Implicit Association Test. The use of audio stimuli as repeated tokens for their phonological attributes represents an innovation in IAT methodology. Explicit attitudes were elicited through self-report. The explicit task was contextualized as a fictional medical malpractice trial; participants heard the recorded audio testimony of two actors (one US-accented and one Korean-accented) portraying opposing expert witnesses. Four test conditions counterbalanced across participants were created from the recordings. Participants rated the experts on fourteen dependent variables ('traits'): believability, credibility, judgment, knowledge, competence, trustworthiness, likeability, friendliness, expertise, intelligence, warmth, persuasiveness, presentation style, and clarity of presentation. Participants were also asked for their attitudes toward the speakers relative to each other (i.e., Which doctor would you side with in this dispute?). The question of speaker preference was posed as a binary choice...

This qualitative study was guided by the framework of Intercultural Communicative Competence (ICC). In Canada, although researchers recognize that learning French through a cultural context will promote understanding and acceptance of cultural diversity, as well as the learning of the target language, there is little evidence to support the ways in which this methodology may influence the learning of elementary Core French students. The purpose of this study was to investigate the ways in which a group of Grade 4 students, from an English community, perceived their peers from a French community, and to describe any changes in their attitudes toward learning French as a Second Language in response to the opportunity to learn through a cultural context. This action research study used a questionnaire, an observation checklist of task-related behaviour, and semi-structured group photo-interviews to explore 15 Grade 4 students’ perceptions and attitudes in response to a new research-based teaching approach. As the cultural exchange unfolded, I sought evidence of the three savoirs (that according to the ICC model, primary students have the ability to develop), in order to promote interculturality: savoir être (related to students’ attitudes towards the other students)...

Cette thèse vise à mieux comprendre les tensions ethniques. Ceci est fait en explorant, dans une étude en quatre parties, l'une de ses caractéristiques les plus importantes mais sévèrement négligées: la langue. S’inspirant des traditions de recherche de la sociolinguistique, de la psychologie sociale et de la science politique, cette thèse fournit une analyse en profondeur de l'influence de la langue sur les relations intergroupes. Elle le fait, spécifiquement, en se concentrant sur l'influence que la vitalité linguistique, la santé sociale d'une langue, a sur les tensions sociales. Cette thèse propose un cadre théorique dans lequel le niveau de vitalité linguistique contribue à générer des griefs culturels qui ont une incidence par la suite sur les relations intergroupes. Le premier article explore la relation macro entre la vitalité linguistique et l'intensité des conflits intergroupes. Les résultats, dérivés de données de l'Atlas UNESCO des langues en danger dans le monde et du projet Minorities at Risk (MAR), démontrent une relation curvilinéaire où les niveaux bas et élevé de vitalité linguistique génèrent une intensité inférieure au niveau modéré de vitalité. Ces résultats confirment que la vitalité linguistique est un déterminant important des tensions ethniques fondées sur la langue d'une manière générale...

Este trabalho tem como objetivo depreender as crenças, valores, e atitudes sobre a língua de uma comunidade afrodescendente a partir de duas perspectivas: dos próprios moradores da fazenda bem como dos moradores da sede do município, com base em um corpus constituído de entrevistas estruturadas e semi-estruturadas aliado a outros mecanismos de coleta de dados. A comunidade denominada Fazenda Maracujá está situada no Município de Conceição do Coité, na região sisaleira do semi-árido baiano. Os estudos são desenvolvidos a partir dos pressupostos metodológicos da sociolingüística que estuda a língua não só no seu aspecto lingüístico, mas também na sua relação com questões sociais, portanto no extralingüístico. Assim, considerando-se que as atitudes lingüísticas e, portanto, as representações da língua e de suas variantes fazem parte do objeto da sociolingüística, acrescenta-se à concepção teórica mencionada a abordagem das representações sociais, segundo a qual uma atitude advém das representações que se fazem de um objeto (a língua). Desse modo, são essas teorias que, através das noções de conflito e contradição, dão suporte para justificar as crenças e julgamentos, nos discursos dos informantes a respeito da variante local.

This paper is based on a survey into perspectives on the English language conducted in a MA in TEFL program in a Croatian University. In the study we examine non-native student-teachers' attitudes towards English and explore four key issues: a) which varieties of English are preferred, b) how the notion of English as an International Language is conceptualized, c) how attitudes about English inform teaching and learning, and d) to what extent the sociocultural context informs attitudes about English. In the English department, there is no articulated policy toward English, yet there appears to be a strong attachment to native-speaker norms. However, with the internationalization of English and the changing ownership of the language, in recent years, much debate has arisen over the native-speaker ideal (HOLLIDAY, 2005; MCKAY, 2002). The English language is used primarily by non-native speakers to communicate with non-native speakers but it appears that this notion has had little impact on teaching and learning (see JENKINS, 2007). We see this gap as an important, and relatively underexplored issue, which merits more interest in English studies. We conclude that, in this context, perceptions of English are still formed by native-speaker norms...

The subject of this dissertation is the awareness of linguistic diversity in the Hebrew Bible—that is, the recognition evident in certain biblical texts that the world’s languages differ from one another. Given the frequent role of language in conceptions of identity, the biblical authors’ reflections on language are important to examine. Of the biblical texts that explicitly address the subject of linguistic diversity, some are specific, as in references to particular languages (e.g., “Aramaic”), while others refer to linguistic multiplicity generally, as in the Tower of Babel episode (Gen 11:1–9). Linguistic difference is also indicated implicitly, as when the speech of Laban in Gen 29–31 exhibits Aramaic-like features that emphasize his foreignness. Building on previous studies of limited scope, my approach is to collect and analyse the evidence for awareness of linguistic diversity in the biblical books comprehensively. Drawing on concepts from sociolinguistics, including style-switching, code-switching, and language ideology, I categorize such evidence and explain its significance with respect to its literary and historical contexts. I thus contribute to wider debates on the sociolinguistics of ancient Hebrew...

Since the 1960s, sociolinguists have been examining the social factors that influence language variation and the attitudes speakers have towards those variations. In this study, the language attitudes about the perceived Spanish dialects in Mexico are analyzed using a maptask. A group of Mexican immigrants in the U.S. was asked to draw on a map of Mexico where they felt that people speak Spanish differently. They were then asked to explain/elaborate on the divisions that they drew. These maps and interviews were used to determine the perceived major dialects of Mexican Spanish according to the majority of participants. Perceptions of dialects are measured via reoccurring themes that were brought up by a majority of interviewees. Salient themes include language contact, such as influence of English or indigenous languages, and whether a dialect was deemed urban or rural.; Percepciones de los inmigrantes mexicanos de los dialectos del español de México: un estudio de actitudes lingüísticas. Desde los años 60, los sociolingüistas han estudiado los factores sociales que influyen en la variación lingüística y las actitudes de los hablantes hacia esa variación. En este estudio, se analizan, usando una técnica de mapeo...

In the field of social psychology, a wide range of implicit attitude measures have recently been developed. These measures have hardly been used in linguistic attitude research so far. This paper presents a case study exploring the potential of one of these social psychological measures, the Personalized Implicit Association Test, in order to find out whether it can be useful for the study of language attitudes. In the case study, the Personalized Implicit Association Test is applied to measure attitudes towards regional varieties of Dutch in Belgium and Standard Belgian Dutch.

AbstractThe study investigates English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course learners’ motivation within the L2 Motivational Self System Framework (cf. DÖRNYEI; CLÉMENT, 2001; DÖRNYEI, 2005; CSIZÉR; DÖRNYEI, 2005b) and their achievement. The framework consists of three components, of which the ideal L2 self is the most important in the maintenance of motivation.  Brazilian learners of EAP, students of a federal university in Belo Horizonte, participated in the study. The data was collected by means of questionnaires about attitude and motivation towards the L2, L2 learning and EAP, and also the ethnicity and socioeconomic backgrounds of learners. The EAP course as a program component of a broader, federal Brazilian policy with both national and international stakeholders was also examined. The results suggest that the learners possess a well-established ideal L2 self.  The variables measured in this project presented a positive tendency towards L2 motivation. This confirms that the participants were motivated to learn the L2 language, in this case English.  The socioeconomic and ethnic variables indicate that whites from a middle-class background are the majority group on campus. Recommendations for further research in L2 motivation and policy studies conclude the paper.Keywords: EAP. Educational policy. International education. L2 motivational self system.

This study examined the effects of two types of Multimedia Instruction (MI) and learners' second language (L2) proficiency on language learning attitudes. During four weeks, university learners of French received MI on the distinctive use of the perfective and the imperfective past in one of the four following conditions: learners with low L2 proficiency level exposed to MI with (n=17) or without language awareness tasks (n=17), and learners with intermediate L2 proficiency level exposed to MI with (n=14) or without language awareness tasks (n=28). Before and after the experiment, participants completed the Attitude/Motivation Test Battery (AMTB). Non-parametric analyses revealed a positive enhancement of classroom-related attitudes only among intermediate learners exposed to MI without Language Awareness Tasks. Nevertheless, the results showed similar as well as stable attitudes towards language learning in all the experimental conditions.
