 Article Title :: Intonation: An Essential Element of the American English Accent
Intonation in English.Intonation, the “music” of a language, is perhaps the most important element of a correct accent. Many people think that pronunciation is what makes up an accent. It may be that pronunciation is very important for an understandable accent. But it is intonation that gives the final touch that makes an accent correct or native. Often we hear someone speaking with perfect grammar, and perfect formation of the sounds of English but with a little something that gives her away as not being a native speaker.Therefore, it is necessary to realize that there are three components to an accent, pronunciation, intonation, and linking  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Crossing the Rubicon
Did you ever wonder where a common phrase came from? Crossing the Rubicon is such a phrase. This is what it means today: You have taken a step too far. You are at great risk and you can’t go back.Under ancient Roman law it was forbidden for any general to cross the Rubicon River and enter Italy proper with a standing army. That was treason.The Rubicon wasn’t much of a river. It was a small stream but to cross over with an army was a dangerous step. Immediate civil war was the result.In January 49 BC, Caesar crossed the tiny stream. This is what he said, “Let us go where the omens of the Gods and the crimes of our enemies summon us! THE DIE IS NOW CAST!”  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Your Children Know More Latin Than You
The beautiful language of Latin has been undergoing an incredible revival of interest lately. Why has this formerly moldy language acquired a new luster? What constitutes a "revival of interest"?

 Article Title :: Japanese Verb Myths: Part 1
The road to understanding Japanese in littered with lies. These lies aren't intended to harm. The fact is, in the beginning the lies seem natural and helpful. They help make the language 'feel' closer to our native language (English, most likely). Unfortunately, the more knowledge you try to pile on the top of these lies, the more your house of learning resembles a home built on a foundation of sponges. Instead of helping, these myths only make life harder.At points, they can make you wonder: "Why can't I understand Japanese?" "What's wrong with me?" "I must just be stupid." When I started taking a formal Japanese class a few months ago, I realized   (read full article)

 Article Title :: The Wonder That is Sanskrit
“Sanskrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure; more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin and more exquisitely refined than either.”These remarkable words of Sir William Jones (1746-1794) are important as the 18th century European enlightenment’s view of an ancient language of Asia.He had founded Asiatic Society in 1784.

 Article Title :: Conquering Japanese Verb Myths - Part 2 - Verbs in Costume
Quick question: Is tabemasu a verb? If you said yes: congratulations - you're about to defeat your second myth of learning Japanese Verbs.I bet, if you're anything like me, you probably started out learning all kinds of Japanese 'verbs' like the above tabemasu.One of the first sentances I learned in Japanese was: Nani o tabemasu ka? What are you eating?At the time, I figured (logically) that tabemasu was the verb in the sentence. Worse, to an extent, it is the verb of that sentence. It does everything a verb should. It creates action in the sentence. It shows 'what' someone or something is doing. So why does believing that tabemasu is  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Second Language Acquisition
As we saw in our previous mini-article, children acquire language through a subconscious process during which they are unaware of grammatical rules.Their interaction with the environment (i.e. primarily parents and people they have constant contact with) added to their innate capacity to acquire language results in a perfect or almost perfect mastery of their native tongue in a relatively short period of time.In other words, their need to communicate added to their innate capacity plus the exposure they get from their environment drive their language acquisition process.In short, it is through interaction and meaningful communication that they acquire the language.  (read full article)
