 Article Title :: The Oxford Dictionary Creation and The Future of Language
 
Have you ever read the encyclopedia? Well, I guess you are not a; know it all, after all? Have you ever read the dictionary? It seems like a boring thing to do but you really should read it, as it is quite good actually. In my life I have read two dictionaries; an abridged Oxford dictionary and a regular dictionary.It is amazing how the language changes over the years in each society and in each new generation. If you ever want to read a book on the subject, then I recommend; “The Meaning of Everything; The story of the Oxford English Dictionary” by Simon Winchester.What will the future of the English language be?

 Article Title :: What Do You Call Someone Who Causes Commotion? English Language Needs a New Word
 
What you call someone who is causally and constantly causing chaos, controversy and commotion? I call that person a commoter! Many people believe it is not fair for me to make up new words and invent-a-words. Yet if you think about it there is no word for someone that causes commotion in the English language. We need to have such a word for these people who were constantly causing problems.A commoter to a lesser degree is someone that promotes doom and gloom and is always telling you that the world will end and that everything that is going on, well they say it is so very critical and everything that someone says negatively turns into gossip. Bill O’Riley and Ann Coulter could   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Hurricanes and Language
 
We know that cataclysmic evolution can wipe out an entire tribe in Indonesia such as a major catastrophic event like a Volcano, Tsunami or a Major Typhoon. If an island tribe had its own language and dialect then that language may have died due to the last few inhabitants escaping to another island and perhaps joining a different tribe.Over time eventually they would die and no one would be left with knowledge of that language. The major category hurricanes in the Atlantic can cause the same issues and may well have in the past eliminated island dialects and languages. For those that study language of the human species they know all too well that cataclysmic evolution has in fact   (read full article)

 Article Title :: Esperanto: A Language For Everyone-How It Can Benefit You, How It Can Benefit The World
 
The Esperanto language was developed by Dr. L. L. Zamenhof in Europe over a hundred years ago. No one knows exactly how many people speak any language fluently. Some estimates put the speakers of Esperanto at more than a million. They live everywhere in the world. Zamenhof`s idea came from his experience in European communities which were made up of separate groups who gathered together because they spoke the same language. Next door to them was another enclave of people who spoke only their own language. There may have been ten or more different groups clustered near each other, yet they could not communicate outside their little language zones.This led to great difficulties in t  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Mind Mapping - How To Use Mind Maps To Teach Difficult Grammar Points
 
If you are a language teacher, you probably already use mind maps to help your students learn vocabulary. These mind maps are sometimes referred to as “vocabulary networks” or “word maps”. One popular use of such mind maps is organising vocabulary groups, e.g. your central theme is “food” and your sub-themes are “meat”, “fruit”, “vegetables” etc. Another way might be to associate the various nouns, adjectives and verbs with your central theme, e.g. television, programme, film, switch on, watch, interesting, boring...But have you considered using mind maps for teaching grammar points?
