Přednáška v Brně III: Prof. Chiu-lan Chern (English Department, NTNU, Taiwan), 6. února, 2015

  I See Taiwan from its People and Culture   Abstract The five elements of Taiwan’s soft power, according to Taiwan’s former vice president Annette Lu, are human rights, democracy, peace, love and high technology. Adopting the term used for the 2014 final countdown fireworks at the tallest building of Taiwan, Taipei 101, and its sponsor, iSee Taiwan Foundation, I will lead the audience to see Taiwan from the hospitality of its people and the development of its cultural and technological industries. Some examples from university programs will be cited to support this angle of cultural development. Místo: Místnost C14, Filozofická fakulta, Masarykovy univerzity Čas: 6. 2. 2015,...

Hlavní přednáška konference: Prof. Chiu-lan Chern (English Department, NTNU, Taiwan), 6. února, 2015

  Konference: 10th Brno International Conference of English, American and Canadian Studies–Creating, Shaping, Signifying (5.–7. 2. 2015) Texts and other sites of meaning – verbal, visual, multimodal – are the common ground in the various disciplines of Anglophone studies. There are multiple agents involved in the production of meaning: authors/speakers, recipients/audiences, and the scholar. Each of these actors is involved in the process of creating, shaping, and signifying in their own, specific manner. This conference seeks to explore the manifestations of these processes in diverse contexts and from various perspectives. Program konference zde. Keynote Speech: The Impact of Globalization on English Education in Taiwan Abstract Globalization has brought us opportunities...

  Dr. Alvin Chen (National Changhua University of Education): “Corpus linguistics and the study of Chinese“   Abstract: In this talk, I will talk about the general background of corpus linguistics as a sub-discipline in linguistics. I will be mainly concerned with two fundamental questions: what is a corpus and what is a corpus for. Basic principles of corpus design and construction will be briefly introduced in connection to its possible applications on the studies of Mandarin. A case study on prosodic phrasing of conversational Mandarin will be briefly introduced. Místo: Palackého univerzita, Třída Svobody, 3. patro, místnost 3.40 Čas: 13:15-14:45   Tato přednáška je sponzorována projektem CHINET, který je financován Evropským strukturálním...

  Prof. Hsiang Jieh (Research Center for Digital Humanities and Department of Computer Science, National Taiwan University) Reindexing the Chinese Recorder Index Místo: Trida Svobody 26, Olomouc, Místnost 3.40 Čas: 11:30–13:00   Abstrakt: Chinese Recorder (CR) is a monthly English journal published by Protestant missionaries in China between 1867 and 1941.  During those seventy four years, CR recorded events took place in China through the eyes of the missionaries, from the various wars with foreign powers to the founding of the republic to the beginning of the Pacific War.  Being based in China and written by the missionaries for their fellow missionaries, CR presents a view of China unlike the others of that tumultuous yet exciting era.  Although one cannot say that...

  Prof. Huang Chu-ren (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University): Corpus-based Grammar: How to make sense of widely distributed data in the use of Chinese Venue: Trida Svobody 26, Olomouc, Room 3.45 Time: 10:00 – 11:30   Abstrakt: When learners of Chinese as a second language are told to learn Chinese grammar by reading a good grammar or by following good examples; their complaints are typically that they cannot find a good comprehensive grammar; or that they do not know how to find the good examples or how to infer grammar generalizations from these examples. I will try to address these issues in my talk. I will first introduce a new Chinese Reference Grammar to be published by the Cambridge University Press; outlining its content as well as the criteria we followed to write...

  Dr. Alvin Chen (National Changhua University of Education): “Geometry and conceptual symmetry: A cross-linguistic corpus-based study on spatial particles in Mandarin and English”   Abstract: Geometrically speaking, the space we live in comes with symmetrical dimensions, such as the horizontal axis with FRONT and BACK. However, it remains unclear whether human beings conceptualize spatial dimensions on a symmetrical basis. This is a niche, where corpus data may be of great help in shedding light on the connection between geometric and conceptual symmetries. The aim of the present study is to show how corpus-based analyses may contribute to a better understanding of our conceptualization of the spatial relations, or in general, of other complex abstract constructs....

  Prof. Chu-ren Huang (Hong Kong Polytech University): “How to Make Sense of Chinese Characters? From practical knowledge of the world to language as a system of knowledge”   Místo: Zasedací místnost, Budova C, Filozofická fakulta, MU (Arne Nováka 1) Čas: 10:50   Abstrakt: One of the most fascinating elements of the Chinese language and culture is the Chinese character writing system. On one hand, these Chinese characters are so difficult to learn to read and write. On the other hand, the character system is also so robust such that it allows modern Chinese people to read text from more than two thousand years ago without much difficulty and allow unrelated and mutually unintelligible languages to use the same writing system and understand each other...
