Gli hashflag dei mondiali

Mi piace la parola hashflag, che in Twitter identifica gli hashtag che fanno apparire una bandierina colorata (flag) nei tweet se si digita #XYZ, dove XYZ è un codice associato a ciascun paese che partecipa ai mondiali di calcio.

(CA) Vocabulari - Corpus | Portal de la Llengua de Signes Catalana – Institu d'Estudis Catalans

[iframe http://taller.iec.cat/lsc/vocabulari_cat.asp 700 600]...

 

Benvinguts! Aquesta és la pàgina web del projecte pilot de corpus de la llengua de signes catalana (LSC). Aquest projecte pilot té una durada inicial d’un any i servirà per establir les bases del futur projecte del corpus de la LSC.

 

 Un corpus és una col·lecció representativa d’exemples d’una llengua en format llegible per una màquina, que s’utilitza per a estudiar el tipus i la freqüència d’unitats lingüístiques. A més, constitueix una representació àmplia de la llengua i de les seves varietats geogràfiques, de registres i generacionals. Quant als corpus en llengua de signes, es caracteritzen per ser col·leccions de vídeos anotats que contenen material escrit alineat amb les dades principals en llengua de signes. També constitueixen una mostra representativa de la llengua en qüestió.

Evviva l'italiano, più vivo che mai!

Evviva l'italiano, più vivo che mai! | Lexicool.com Web Review | Scoop.it
L’obiettivo di Antonelli non è certo di prendere in castagna i nostri miti del liceo, ma di dimostrarci che “l’italiano” perfetto, immutabile, il riferimento di una fantomatica “bella scrittura” non esiste e non e mai esistito.

“Bisogna farsene una ragione: il purismo alle lingue fa male.”

E per fortuna, perché “solo le lingue morte non cambiano nel tempo”. La nostra, la quarta lingua più studiata nel mondo, “gode oggi di ottima salute. Anzi, per certi versi non è mai stata così in forma.” In forma perché viva, accogliente, mutevole, scritta quotidianamente da milioni di italiani in email, chat e social media.

Les deux corps du bilingue - La République Des Livres par Pierre Assouline | Lexicool.com Web Review | Scoop.it
Le bilingue, du moins celui qui écrit dans une autre langue, est un être bicéphale qui a l’immense privilège de choisir ses parents. Mais dans quelle langue a-t-il mal ? Dans les deux, l’angoisse, puis la douleur, s’adressant à chacune de ces deux âmes. Et dans quelle langue rêve-t-il ? Dans un méli-mélo des deux. C’est le [...]
