Is Your Novel Losing the Plot?
Sometimes we can be too close to a story to see clearly. If you find that you begin to change the plot midway, or struggle to think of one at all, this book deals specifically with keeping you on track to create compelling plot outlines your readers will love.

Tricks Any Writer Can Learn
Arranged simply and effectively, this guide is divided into four concise and easy-to-read sections that will bring about fast results. These are:
The Basics of Making an Outline – considers the flow of ideas, how to present characters effectively against a developing storyline, and the way to refine major schemes & subplots that drive the story forward.
Fiction Outline – practical methods that inspire ideas in different ways, to help the sequencing of events unfold in a story & keep sight of the key points.

Book 2) Character Development: Step-by-Step | Essential Story Character Creation, Character Expression and Character Building Tricks Any Writer Can Learn

Need to Breathe Life into Your Characters?
You may have a great story but if your characters are flat and uninteresting your readers will find your story dull. If your lead protagonist isn’t generating empathy, then no one cares what happens to them. Character Development covers every aspect of character building; from developing charismatic and believable people, to making sure they work holistically to drive the narrative forward in realistic ways.

Know Your Anti-Hero from Your Antagonist
In order to create compelling characters your readers will love, Marsh introduces the reader to 12-character types and explains how and when they are introduced to a story. She demonstrates the importance of instilling flaws to create a balance of human qualities that evolve throughout the novel in captivating ways.

Escrituras de minorías, heterogeneidad y traducción




Spoturno, M. L. (2018). [e-Book]  Escrituras de minorías, heterogeneidad y traducción. Universidad Nacional de La Plata. Facultad de Humanidades y Ciencias de la Educación, 2018

Texto completo


El estudio de las escrituras de minorías, de la llamada literatura poscolonial así como el de la narrativa de la diáspora ha cobrado gran relevancia en el marco de los estudios culturales y literarios. Más recientemente, en el ámbito de los estudios del discurso y de la traductología, surge la necesidad de examinar este tipo de escrituras que se revelan como discursos explícitamente heterogéneos y marcadamente fronterizos. Escrituras de minorías, heterogeneidad y traducción aborda distintos aspectos que atañen a la construcción discursivo-enunciativa de un corpus de textos literarios plurilingüe, conformado por originales y (auto) traducciones, los cuales pertenecen al ámbito de las escrituras de minorías. En efecto, el examen de la operación de desterritorialización, propia de estas escrituras, constituye un interés central de este volumen colectivo, cuyos capítulos exploran el problema de la construcción de la identidad lingüístico-cultural, las diversas manifestaciones de la heterogeneidad enunciativa como signo de la presencia del otro en el propio discurso, los procesos de traducción y negociación culturales y la traducción, no solo entendida como la operación que media entre dos textos escritos en lenguas diferentes sino como estrategia de escritura interna al texto literario.

Actas de las Jornadas Marcel Proust: Literatura y filosofía.


Melamed, A. (2016). [e-Book]  Actas de las Jornadas Marcel Proust: Literatura y filosofía. Buenos Aires, Universidad Nacional de La Plata. Facultad de Humanidades y Ciencias de la Educación

Texto completo


Se publican las actas de las “Jornadas Marcel Proust: Literatura y Filosofía” en cuyas ponencias los investigadores exploran las múltiples conexiones entre filosofía y literatura presentes en el obra de Marcel Proust. En efecto, puesto que En busca del tiempo perdido reconstruye diversas tradiciones literarias, filosóficas y artísticas a la vez que suscita lecturas heterogéneas y divergentes, lo trabajos de las jornadas profundizan algunas de esas relaciones o proponen nuevas posibilidades de lectura. En las ponencias se indaga, en última instancia, sobre cuestiones y concepciones filosóficas inmanentes a los desarrollos ficcionales y las relaciones entre demostración ficcional y demostración filosófica, desde los estudios de género al neopragmatismo, de Merleau Ponty a Benjamin o Sartre.

Comparación de conversaciones en veintiún idiomas – Una primera encuesta


Enfield, N. J., M. Dingemanse, et al. [e-Book]  Huh? What? – A first survey in 21 languages, Cambridge University Press, 2013.

Texto completo


Introduction A comparison of conversation in twenty-one languages from around the world reveals commonalities and differences in the way that people do open-class other-initiation of repair (Schegloff, Jefferson, and Sacks, 1977; Drew, 1997). We find that speakers of all of the spoken languages in the sample make use of a primary interjection strategy (in English it is Huh?), where the phonetic form of the interjection is strikingly similar across the languages: a monosyllable featuring an open non-back vowel [a, æ, ə, ʌ], often nasalized, usually with rising intonation and sometimes an [h-] onset. We also find that most of the languages have another strategy for open-class other-initiation of repair, namely the use of a question word (usually “what”). Here we find significantly more variation across the languages. The phonetic form of the question word involved is completely different from language to language: e.g., English [wɑt] versus Cha’palaa [ti] versus Duna [aki]. Furthermore, the grammatical structure in which the repair-initiating question word can or must be expressed varies within and across languages. In this chapter we present data on these two strategies – primary interjections like Huh? and question words like What? – with discussion of possible reasons for the similarities and differences across the languages. We explore some implications for the notion of repair as a system, in the context of research on the typology of language use. The general outline of this chapter is as follows. We first discuss repair as a system across languages and then introduce the focus of the chapter: open-class other-initiation of repair. A discussion of the main findings follows, where we identify two alternative strategies in the data: an interjection strategy (Huh?) and a question word strategy (What?). Formal features and possible motivations are discussed for the interjection strategy and the question word strategy in order. A final section discusses bodily behavior including posture, eyebrow movements and eye gaze, both in spoken languages and in a sign language.

This book is intended for broad readership. Given the dearth of comprehensive appraisals of the Canadian Benchmark system, it is meant as a basic academic reference for discussion, in the Canadian context, of language policy, linguistic integration of adult migrants, second language teacher education, and taskbased language learning. It is relevant to Canadian researchers, graduate and undergraduate students, policy-makers, and various second language training stakeholders (administrators, instructors, assessors, curriculum and teaching material designers, and others). Finally, the book is of relevance internationally as well, in an ongoing reflection in the community of researchers and political decision-makers concerned with similar products abroad, such as the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) and the ACTFL guidelines.Language is the Key propose un examen du modaale reconnu de formation linguistique en langues officielles offerte aux immigrants adultes qui arrivent au Canada – les niveaux de compétence linguistique canadiens (NCLC), ou Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB).

The alphabetic script is part of the lasting heritage of the ancient Near East.
