Linguistics, Style and Writing in the 21st Century - with Steven Pinker
Does writing well matter in an age of instant communication? Drawing on the latest research in linguistics and cognitive science, Steven Pinker replaces the recycled dogma of style guides with reason and evidence. Subscribe for regular science videos: http://bit.ly/RiSubscRibe Watch the Q&A here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rYAnYXIhL0 In this brand-new talk, introduced by Lord Melvyn Bragg, Steven argues that style still matters: in communicating effectively, in enhancing the spread of ideas, in earning a reader’s trust and, not least, in adding beauty to the world. Steven Pinker is an experimental psychologist and one of the world’s foremost writers on language, mind, and human nature. He is Professor in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University and conducts research on language and cognition but also writes for publications such as the New York Times, Time, and is the author of many books, including The Language Instinct and How the Mind Works.

Historical Linguistics | Diachronic Linguistics
Historical Linguistics | Diachronic Linguistics: Historical linguistics, also called diachronic linguistics, is the scientific study of language change over time. Principal concerns of historical linguistics include: 1. to describe and account for observed changes in particular languages 2. to reconstruct the pre-history of languages and to determine their relatedness, grouping them into language families (comparative linguistics) 3. to develop general theories about how and why language changes 4. to describe the history of speech communities 5. to study the history of words, i.e. etymology Initially, all modern linguistics was historical in orientation. Even the study of modern dialects involved looking at their origins. Ferdinand de Saussure's distinction between synchronic and diachronic linguistics is fundamental to the present day organization of the discipline. Primacy is accorded to synchronic linguistics, and diachronic linguistics is defined as the study of successive synchronic stages. Saussure's clear demarcation, however, has had both defenders and critics. In linguistics, a synchronic analysis is one that views linguistic phenomena only at a given time, usually the present, though a synchronic analysis of a historical language form is also possible. This may be distinguished from diachronic, which regards a phenomenon in terms of developments through time. Diachronic analysis is the main concern of historical linguistics; however, most other branches of linguistics are concerned with some form of synchronic analysis. The study of language change offers a valuable insight into the state of linguistic representation, and because all synchronic forms are the result of historically evolving diachronic changes, the ability to explain linguistic constructions necessitates a focus on diachronic processes. In practice, a purely synchronic linguistics is not possible for any period before the invention of the gramophone, as written records always lag behind speech in reflecting linguistic developments. Written records are difficult to date accurately before the development of the modern title page. Often dating must rely on contextual historical evidence such as inscriptions, or, modern technology such as carbon dating can be used to ascertain dates of varying accuracy. Also, the work of sociolinguists on linguistic variation has shown synchronic states are not uniform: the speech habits of older and younger speakers differ in ways that point to language change. Synchronic variation is linguistic change in progress. Thanks for watching. Please subscribe to my channel.
v2 - What Is Linguistics?
1. My t-shirt is from the Centro Cultural Tijuana (CECUT): http://www.cecut.gob.mx/ 2a. On my use of #scientific | #humanistic | #philosophical: I've recently decided that calling linguistics the "_scientific_ study of language" does a huge disservice to the field and enforces a particular way of thinking about inquiry that I no longer support. Linguistics is the _objective_ study of langauge, but that allows many approaches besides the scientific one. 2b. On my use of #form | #meaning | #use: My entire approach to linguistic inquiry circles around this FORM-MEANING-USE trifecta: the form of linguistic elements, the meaning behind linguistic elements, and the use of those elements in context. I don't think we can separate the three -- in fact, I think it's theoretically pernicious to do so -- and I think that any theory that requires the ignorance of one or more of these aspects is doomed to remain in the dark about the true nature of language. For more on linguistic competence and an alternative way of doing linguistic methodology (one that doesn't focus on #use, really): Steven Pinker: Linguistics as a Window to Understanding the Brain https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-B_ONJIEcE 3.

More on double negatives and non-standard grammar: Double negatives, also called Negative Concord in linguistics, are everywhere. If you're an English speaker, negative concord is very likely the default that you acquire with English and only later learn to avoid as a prescriptive rule. Here's a nice map from Yale of who uses Negative Concord: http://microsyntax.sites.yale.edu/negative-concord 10.

On the use of * in linguistics: Most of the time, linguists use * to indicate that the following thing is ungrammatical, or not well-formed, as in: *lfez — which violates the rules of English phonology — or *Donut Jon the ate. — which violates the rules of English syntax. 13.

Forensic Linguistic Profiling & What Your Language Reveals About You | Harry Bradford | TEDxStoke
How a forensic analysis of language reveals features of idiolect which can be used to identify criminals and terrorists online. Filmed Dec 2016 at The City of Stoke-on-Trent Sixth Form College. [Cameras (Staffs Uni): Oluseyi A Oluyinka; Giorgia Perini; Bob Straw; Tom Andrews; Ed Walker] [Editor (Staffs Uni): Carl Maddox] Born in Newcastle under Lyme, Harry Bradford was educated at Stoke on Trent Sixth Form College before studying English Literature and Language at Bangor University where he then specialised in Forensic Linguistics for his MSc. He currently works as a freelance Forensic Linguistic Consultant. This involves work on legal cases where the true identity or emotional state of a writer need to be determined. This often involves decoding texts or online posts to work out who wrote them and what their state of mind was at the time. Harry's talk considers the duality of online anonymity and the role that the field of Forensic Linguistics and linguistic profiling can play in shaping the future of the relationship between online discourse and surveillance.

In this unit, I go through the historical development of the field of Applied Linguistics, and its major definitions and purposes.
What is SOCIOLINGUISTICS? What does SOCIOLINGUISTICS mean? SOCIOLINGUISTICS meaning - SOCIOLINGUISTICS pronunciation - SOCIOLINGUISTICS definition - explanation - How to pronounce SOCIOLINGUISTICS? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Sociolinguistics is the descriptive study of the effect of any and all aspects of society, including cultural norms, expectations, and context, on the way language is used, and the effects of language use on society. Sociolinguistics differs from sociology of language in that the focus of sociology of language is the effect of language on the society, while sociolinguistics focuses on the society's effect on language. Sociolinguistics overlaps to a considerable degree with pragmatics. It is historically closely related to linguistic anthropology and the distinction between the two fields has even been questioned recently. It also studies how language varieties differ between groups separated by certain social variables (e.g., ethnicity, religion, status, gender, level of education, age, etc.) and how creation and adherence to these rules is used to categorize individuals in social or socioeconomic classes. As the usage of a language varies from place to place, language usage also varies among social classes, and it is these sociolects that sociolinguistics studies. The social aspects of language were in the modern sense first studied by Indian and Japanese linguists in the 1930s, and also by Louis Gauchat in Switzerland in the early 1900s, but none received much attention in the West until much later. The study of the social motivation of language change, on the other hand, has its foundation in the wave model of the late 19th century. The first attested use of the term sociolinguistics was by Thomas Callan Hodson in the title of his 1939 article "Sociolinguistics in India" published in Man in India. Sociolinguistics in the West first appeared in the 1960s and was pioneered by linguists such as William Labov in the US and Basil Bernstein in the UK. In the 1960s, William Stewart and Heinz Kloss introduced the basic concepts for the sociolinguistic theory of pluricentric languages, which describes how standard language varieties differ between nations.

Variety (linguistics)
In sociolinguistics a variety, also called a lect, is a specific form of a language or language cluster. This may include languages, dialects, registers, styles or other forms of language, as well as a standard variety. The use of the word "variety" to refer to these different forms avoids the use of the term language, which many people associate only with the standard language, and the term dialect, which is often associated with non-standard varieties thought of as less prestigious or "correct" than the standard. Linguists speak of both standard and non-standard varieties. "Lect" avoids the problem in ambiguous cases of deciding whether or not two varieties are distinct languages or dialects of a single language. Variation at the level of the lexicon, such as slang and argot, is often considered in relation to particular styles or levels of formality, but such uses are sometimes discussed as varieties themselves.

Note: Recent Research has disputed the effectiveness of learning styles: The idea of this video is to take Gardner's Multiple Intelligences and use them as student learning styles, although Gardner specifically says learning styles are NOT multiple intelligences Get your Learning Styles Classroom Posters at TPT Store: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Learning-Styles-Classroom-Posters-Multiple-Intelligences-3557244 Student learning styles and multiple intelligences are described and explored in this video. Seven different learning styles are described in detail and explained fully for teachers and educators in all grade levels and disciplines. This video gives credit to howard gardner and his work on multiple intelligences. The video also explains why multiple intelligences are so important to classroom teachers. The first learning style mentioned is the interpersonal learner also known as the social learner. That is followed by the opposite type of learner, which is the intrapersonal learner, sometimes called the solitary learner. Other learning styles included are kinesthetic (physical), verbal or linguistic, auditory or aural, logical or mathematical, and visual. Definition and theory surrounding multiples intelligences are provided throughout along with with suggestions that educators can make to improve their instruction for these students. Other videos in teachings in education playlists are designed for classroom teachers to learn as much as they can, grow as a teacher, and advance in their career of education.

What is Applied Linguistics? | Definition & History of Applied Linguistics
What is Applied Linguistics? | Definition & History of Applied Linguistics? : Applied linguistics is an interdisciplinary field of linguistics that identifies, investigates, and offers solutions to language-related real-life problems. Some of the academic fields related to applied linguistics are education, psychology, communication research, anthropology, and sociology. The tradition of applied linguistics established itself in part as a response to the narrowing of focus in linguistics with the advent in the late 1950s of generative linguistics, and has always maintained a socially-accountable role, demonstrated by its central interest in language problems. Although the field of applied linguistics started from Europe and the United States, the field rapidly flourished in the international context. Applied linguistics first concerned itself with principles and practices on the basis of linguistics. In the early days, applied linguistics was thought as “linguistics-applied” at least from the outside of the field. In the 1960s, however, applied linguistics was expanded to include language assessment, language policy, and second language acquisition. As early as the 1970s, applied linguistics became a problem-driven field rather than theoretical linguistics, including the solution of language-related problems in the real world. By the 1990s, applied linguistics had broadened including critical studies and multilingualism. Research in applied linguistics was shifted to "the theoretical and empirical investigation of real world problems in which language is a central issue." In the United States, applied linguistics also began narrowly as the application of insights from structural linguistics—first to the teaching of English in schools and subsequently to second and foreign language teaching. The linguistics applied approach to language teaching was promulgated most strenuously by Leonard Bloomfield, who developed the foundation for the Army Specialized Training Program, and by Charles C. Fries, who established the English Language Institute (ELI) at the University of Michigan in 1941. In 1948, the Research Club at Michigan established Language Learning: A Journal of Applied Linguistics, the first journal to bear the term applied linguistics. In the late 1960s, applied linguistics began to establish its own identity as an interdisciplinary field of linguistics concerned with real-world language issues. The new identity was solidified by the creation of the American Association for Applied Linguistics in 1977. ................................................................................................

What is COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS? What does COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS mean? COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS meaning - COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS definition - COMPUTATIONAL LINGUISTICS explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Computational linguistics is an interdisciplinary field concerned with the statistical or rule-based modeling of natural language from a computational perspective. Traditionally, computational linguistics was usually performed by computer scientists who had specialized in the application of computers to the processing of a natural language. Computational linguists often work as members of interdisciplinary teams, including linguists (specifically trained in linguistics), language experts (persons with some level of ability in the languages relevant to a given project), and computer scientists. In general, computational linguistics draws upon the involvement of linguists, computer scientists, experts in artificial intelligence, mathematicians, logicians, philosophers, cognitive scientists, cognitive psychologists, psycholinguists, anthropologists and neuroscientists, among others. Computational linguistics has theoretical and applied components, where theoretical computational linguistics takes up issues in theoretical linguistics and cognitive science, and applied computational linguistics focuses on the practical outcome of modeling human language use.

Top Ten Most Effective Martial Arts
In this video I share my personal opinion on the top ten martial arts in order of effectiveness. NOTE: When I say "traditional" karate, I actually ment "Sport" karate, I apologise for this linguistic imprecision. I have practiced two styles of Karate (Shotokan, Kyokushin), Taekwondo, and Wushu Kun Fu, so although I'm not an expert I do have first hand experience of martial arts and the martial world. Ofcourse I do realise there are many factors to keep into consideration and martial arts like Karate and Kung Fu have many different styles which have variations, but in this video we want to have an interesting opportunity to share out opinions as martial arts lovers.

"Spanglish" is a hybrid style of speaking that combines grammar and vocabulary from both English and Spanish. Contrary to popular belief, Spanglish doesn't reflect poor knowledge of either language. Instaed, Spanglish speakers generally command both individual languages and an additional set of rules governing how, when, and why to switch between the two. Linguists call this "code-switching." Spanglish reflects the complex mixture of identities that characterize Latino life in America. Excerpt from the documentary "Spanish Voices" Available on DVD: https://languageandlife.org/documentaries/spanish-voices -------------------------------------------- ABOUT SPANISH VOICES The unprecedented growth of the Spanish-speaking populations in the Southeastern US has led to major language issues about the co-existence of English and Spanish. Spanish Voices tells the story of those who have participated in this change- through interviews with recent immigrants, long-term residents, musicians, dancers, language instructors, and students. Their narratives show how their experiences are unique to the Southeast as well as common to language contact situations worldwide.
