Le français, langue la plus parlée du monde en 2050 ? | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it
Malgré toute la bonne volonté du monde, les langues étrangères et vous, cela ne marche pas ? Rassurez-vous : plus que quarante ans à tenir et le français devrait devenir l'une des langues les plus parlées du monde.
Charles Tiayon's insight:

Et si le français était en passe de devenir plus populaire que l'anglais et le mandarin ? C'est en tout cas ce qu'affirme une étude de la banque d'investissement Natixis. Intitulé "La francophonie, une opportunité de marché majeure" le document souligne le potentiel du marché francophone pour l'industrie médiatique française. En conclusion, la banque d'investissement précise que "le français pourrait être en 2050 la langue la plus parlée du monde, devant l'anglais et le mandarin". Mais avant de crier cocorico, il convient de remettre ces affirmations en perspective...

Bilingualism: Impact on your Personality?

Bilingualism: Impact on your Personality? | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it
Bilingualism: Does Your Personality Change According to the Language You Speak? Studies suggest this is the case.
Charles Tiayon's insight:

Many issues are considered.  For example, being able to speak another language is generally linked to a more flexible brain.  This, coupled with cultural influences amongst languages may have an impact. For example, some speakers reported a difference in speaking style.  These differences ranged from level of perceived rudeness to frequency of interrupting another speaker.  Reasons cited for these characteristics included cultural differences in the acceptance of more rude language to the structural differences between the languages spoken.  Word order may have an impact.  If the meaning of the sentence is revealed earlier in one language, interrupting in that language may reduce the risk of misunderstanding the speaker if the significant word or words have already been uttered.

A simpler way to teach writing: the one trait rubric -

A simpler way to teach writing: the one trait rubric - | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it
I used to spend hours grading students essays and felt extremely frustrated by the subjectiveness of my system. It was very difficult to think about all six traits of effective writing–ideas/content, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, and conventions–at one time while grading. I’d often get sidetracked by mistakes in one area, such as spelling or …
Charles Tiayon's insight:

Using a straightforward rubric with only 3 or 4 criteria makes it clear to students and parents why an assignment earned the grade it did. It also prevents the teacher from downgrading a paper by weighting one aspect of good writing too heavily. Concentrating on only one trait makes it easier for the teacher to fairly assess a student’s skills in a particular trait.

Passeport pour les langues - Les événements - Ficep | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it

STARTING LAST SPRING, a new figure began popping up everywhere on British television and radio and in newspaper pages, berating his audience for their grammar abuses: a spry, white-haired Latin and English grammar tutor named N.M. (or Nevile) Gwynne. His claim to fame was a short polemical guidebook, “Gwynne’s Grammar,” which brings a bewitching zeal—and a defiantly old-fashioned approach—to the study of English grammar and usage. “What I maintain is that our ancestors created this language, which is one of the three best languages in history,” Gwynne said (he considers the other two to be Latin and classical Greek). “And we know how they passed that on from generation to generation....The children were jolly well made to learn it exactly.”

Comment naissent les mots nouveaux?

Comment naissent les mots nouveaux? | Metaglossia: The Translation World | Scoop.it
C'est un chiffre presque incroyable. "Près de la moitié du lexique français général, évalué à 60 000 mots, a été renouvelé depuis un demi-siècle !" assure Xavier North, le délégué général à la langue française et aux langues de France. Mais comment naissent donc ces nouveaux mots?
Charles Tiayon's insight:

Des termes anciens ont pris un nouveau sens (souris, en informatique). D'autres ont été créés de toutes pièces par le recours à des préfixes (bioénergie), des suffixes (traçabilité), des sigles (sida), des compositions (lave-vaisselle) ou des langues étrangères (tag). Cette création est souvent spontanée. Jeunes, romanciers, journalistes et publicitaires en inventent tous les jours, par jeu ou par nécessité. "Au Robert, nous repérons chaque année plusieurs milliers de vocables nouveaux, relève Alain Rey, mais nous n'en gardons que 150 environ." Le tri est en partie subjectif : "Les membres de l'équipe se demandent si le mot est souvent employé autour d'eux, observent sa fréquence d'utilisation sur Google et s'interrogent sur sa pérennité." Malgré son succès actuel, "zlataner" n'a pas eu droit aux honneurs du dictionnaire : son usage devrait régresser après le départ à la retraite du footballeur.
