Composición del inglés


Sirc, G. (2002). [e-Book]  English Composition As A Happening. Utah, Utah State University Press, 2002.

Texto completo


What happened to the bold, kicky promise of writing instruction in the 1960s? The current conservative trend in composition is analyzed allegorically by Geoffrey Sirc in this book-length homage to Charles Deemer’s 1967 article, in which the theories and practices of Happenings artists (multi-disciplinary performance pioneers) were used to invigorate college writing. Sirc takes up Deemer’s inquiry, moving through the material and theoretical concerns of such pre- and post-Happenings influences as Duchamp and Pollock, situationists and punks, as well as many of the Happenings artists proper. With this book, already a cult classic, began a neo-avant-garde for composition studies.Winner of the Ross W. Winterowd Award for most outstanding book in composition theory.

Las lenguas del patrimonio germánico en América del Norte: adquisición, desgaste y cambio



Janne Bondi, J. and C. S. Joseph (2015). [e-Book]  Germanic Heritage Languages in North America: Acquisition, attrition and change. Amsterdam, John Benjamins Publishing Company

Texto completo


This book presents new empirical findings about Germanic heritage varieties spoken in North America: Dutch, German, Pennsylvania Dutch, Icelandic, Norwegian, Swedish, West Frisian and Yiddish, and varieties of English spoken both by heritage speakers and in communities after language shift. The volume focuses on three critical issues underlying the notion of ‘heritage language’: acquisition, attrition and change. The book offers theoretically-informed discussions of heritage language processes across phonetics and phonology, morphology, syntax and semantics and the lexicon, in addition to work on sociolinguistics, historical linguistics and contact settings. With this, the volume also includes a variety of frameworks and approaches, synchronic and diachronic. Most European Germanic languages share some central linguistic features, such as V2, gender and agreement in the nominal system, and verb inflection. As minority languages faced with a majority language like English, similarities and differences emerge in patterns of variation and change in these heritage languages. These empirical findings shed new light on mechanisms and processes.

Aprendizaje del idioma inglés y tecnología: conferencias sobre lingüística aplicada en la era de la tecnología de la información y la comunicación.


Carol, A. C. (2003). [e-Book]  English Language Learning and Technology: Lectures on applied linguistics in the age of information and communication technology. John Benjamins Publishing Company Texto completo: https://www.doabooks.org/doab?func=fulltext&uiLanguage=en&rid=25143


This book explores implications for applied linguistics of recent developments in technologies used in second language teaching and assessment, language analysis, and language use. Focusing primarily on English language learning, the book identifies significant areas of interplay between technology and applied linguistics, and it explores current perspectives on perennial questions such as how theory and research on second language acquisition can help to inform technology-based language learning practices, how the multifaceted learning accomplished through technology can be evaluated, and how theoretical perspectives can offer insight on data obtained from research on interaction with and through technology. The book illustrates how the interplay between technology and applied linguistics can amplify and expand applied linguists’ understanding of fundamental issues in the field. Through discussion of computer-assisted approaches for investigating second language learning tasks and assessment, it illustrates how technology can be used as a tool for applied linguistics research.

ENGLISH COMMUNICATION FOR INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS II is the second book of a collection oftwo addressed to those students involved in learning English to communicate in business contexts. As the previous one, the book is conceived as self-learning material which includes the keys to most activities although the support ofthe instructor in the classroom becomes necessary for some of them. This book is content-based, trying to emphasise the written and oral communicative necessities of the international business world. The book is organised in six units which deal with some types ofbusiness written and oral communication, such as meetings and negotiations, international trade procedures related to Incoterms, packing, delivery and insurance, methods of payment and their corresponding documents, orders, and complaints. All units deal with reading, writing, and listening skills, as well as translation. The CD provided with the book is higWy useful for the listening activities. Speaking and interaction can also be worked in all units although always with the teacher’s guidance. Each unit starts with a general explanation of the topic, followed by reading comprehension and vocabulary activities. Along the unit, several specific explanations can be found including examples of the documents and of the written and spoken communicative events involved. Students are then required to produce their own documents and effective pieces of communication. At the end of each unit, two communicative situations have been included, asking students to solve a business problem. After the situations, each unit is provided with references for further reading either in books or in websites. As a complement to the units in both volumes, a series of seventeen case studies have been created. These case studies reproduce real situations in a company, such as launching a new product, hiring a new employee, strategies to sell a product, reacting to claims, negotiating staff reduction, etc.

El devenir docente de una profesora de Lengua inglesa en Secundaria


Romero Buiza, E. (2012). [e-Book]  El devenir docente de una profesora de Lengua inglesa en Secundaria : Un estudio narrativo a partir de la inmersión reflexiva en la propia práctica en tiempos de cambio educativo, Barcelona: Universitat de Barcelona, 2012

Texto completo


«Toda tesis» me parece en estos momentos un referente demasiado ambicioso, pero sigo reconociéndome en este pensamiento de partida sobre lo que representa realizar una tesis doctoral: el inicio de un viaje, de un partir en dos sentidos paralelos, simultáneos y dinámicos, hacia fuera y hacia dentro, hacia dentro y hacia fuera. Sentidos inevitablemente presentes en la mayoría de los procesos de investigación que pretenden concluir con la escritura de una tesis doctoral. Este estudio, gestado en la diversidad de experiencias vividas y compartidas en el entorno profesional durante cuatro años, nace, crece, se desarrolla y concluye entre los múltiples espacios de nuestros centros, siendo el eje central del mismo la experiencia profesional y personal vivida. A lo largo de este estudio narrativo y desvelando mi práctica docente, actitudes, hábitos y percepciones, me propongo reflexionar sobre cómo se ha ido construyendo mi ser profesora, un devenir profesional a partir del espejo interpretativo de la propia mirada. Parto de mi práctica, una práctica, que como tantas otras, es en última instancia personal y contextualizada en un aula y un centro. De esta manera, la historia de la presente tesis está unida a la historia de mis intentos por trabajar en mi contexto de la manera que estimaba más coherente con lo que creía, sabía, aprendía, pretendía y sentía. El presente estudio emerge como instrumento de comunicación mediador entre quien escribe y quien lee, entre mi palabra y vuestra escucha. Conforma un proceso basado en las vivencias profesionales y personales, personales y profesionales, entre los cursos escolares 1996 y 2000. Experiencias recopiladas e interpretadas a través de un continuado diálogo interior y exterior que busca ahondar comprensivamente dentro y fuera de mi lugar de trabajo: un centro de enseñanza secundaria.

Gramática inglesa para Dummies



Woods, G. (2010). [e-Book]  English Grammar for Dummies. London, Wiley Publishing, 2010.

Texto completo



When you’re a grammarian, people react to you in interesting — and sometimes downright strange — ways. When the first edition of English Grammar For Dummies came out in 2001, an elderly man asked me about something that had puzzled him for eight decades:  Why did his church, St. Paul’s, include an apostrophe in its name? (For the answer, turn to Chapter 11.) My nephew called to inquire whether his company’s sign in Times Square should include a semicolon. I said no, though the notion of a two-story-tall neon semicolon was tempting. Lots of people became tonguetied, sure that I was judging their choice of who or whom. They worried needlessly, because I consider myself off-duty when I’m not teaching or writing. In this second edition of English Grammar For Dummies, I explain  modern, upto-the-minute usage. Grammar does change, though usually an elderly snail moves faster than a grammarian pondering whether to drop a comma. As the world is now texting, tweeting, and PowerPointing all over the place, this edition of English Grammar For Dummies shows you how to handle all sorts of electronic communications, with special attention to business situations. In the current fragile economy, you need every possible edge, and proper grammar is always an advantage. Besides, you don’t want to sit around deciding how to create a grammatically correct bullet point when you could be lobbying the boss for a raise.
