Berestnev G.
Vestnik Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University , 2013,
Abstract: This article reconstructs the image of a woman as presented in Russian modern chanson. The author identifies two female images – the mother and the lover. The image of the mother has hardly changed over the last seventy years. The image of the lover has inversed: earlier, she played with the man, now she is his plaything. Female images are analysed from the perspective of C. G. Jung’s analytical psychology.

Abstract: Language development is the crucial part of the human cognitive nature, understanding language development is important aspect to understand the base and to recall its various components of linguistics. Language development is a process starting early in human life, when a person begins to acquire language by learning it as it is spoken and by mimicry. Scholars share the conviction that key aspects of personality and ability including linguistic and communication ability, are formulated in the earliest stages of life. But they are divided on the role of human intuition on one hand and heredity or environment has in childhood development of knowledge, aptitude and skill. Equally they are divided on how skills emerge and develop. A number of different theories have been advanced that are meant to explain language acquisition. This paper therefore examines the acquisition and theories based on the language development.
Identity and the meaning of style in subculture  [PDF]
Bo?ilovi? Nikola
Filozofija i Dru?tvo , 2006, DOI: 10.2298/fid0630233b
Abstract: The author of this article advances the thesis that many forms of identity (primarily national and personal identity) are today connected with subcultures. Subcultures are the core of the alternative cultural life; they represent particular enclaves in which identities are shaped. The author postulates, explains and defines the subcultural identity as a special kind of identity, based on the meaning of style. For that purpose, he constructs the triad: subculture - style - identity. By analyzing the stated relation he discovers the cultural patterns of the minority groups gathered round the following elements: views on the world, strategies of thinking, symbolic representation, values, beliefs, moods, tastes, specific sensibility and language distinctiveness. Sociological analysis shows that these elements are tightly connected with belonging to classes, layers and informal social groups. Of course, every identifying characteristic does not have its social equivalent - identities in subcultures are, in the first place, the matter of one’s own choice in the process of personalization; they are the best manifestation of cultural diversity, resistance and alternative.
English language and the language of development: A Malaysian perspective
Mohd Faisal b. Hanapiah
Jurnal Kemanusiaan , 2004,
Abstract: English language is the main international language. It is also said that English is the language of progress and development. In this age of Internet and globalization, the use of English has increased tremendously. In Malaysia, English has an impact in certain major developmental areas. This paper investigates, analyzes and further explains the interrelationships between English and the process of development in the country. Discussion includes specific parts of interest: the historical background of English in Malaysia, English and the concept of development communication, functions of English in Malaysia, English and Information Communication Technology (ICT), and roles of English in development. The writer also intends to share with readers the reality and challenges in the use of English in non-native English speaking countries like Malaysia and expresses his ideas on possible recommendation to the issues.
The English Language and Sustainable Development in Nigeria  [PDF]
Ifeyinwa Obiegbu
Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2015.52009
Abstract: Language is the only sustainable weapon that can bind a multilingual nation like Nigeria together. The English language occupies a very significant role in the formation of national values and integration of the Nigerian nation. More than a decade after decolonization of Nigeria, English continues to enjoy its primacy in our educational system as a medium of instruction. Economically, English language is crucial for economic growth. The fragile unity that we still enjoy in Nigeria would have been herculean without the English language. This paper pointedly exposes us to the various ways in which the English language acts as a veritable tool for sustainable development in Nigeria.
The possibility of translation as the criterion of language development
Khukhuni G.,Mazirka I.
Vestnik Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University , 2013,
Abstract: The present paper deals with some aspects connected with the notion of language development. It is mentioned that among the criteria, defining its level, the possibility of rendering foreign texts (both literal ad special) is often used. In connection with this problem some views of Russian and foreign authors are analyzed. It is postulated that the possibility of any given language to function as a target language depends mainly not on the factors of pure linguistic but rather extralinguistic character. The subjective moment (the competence of translators) plays an important role as well.
Programming Language and Artificial Intelligence Development.  [PDF]
Mrs. Rekha Purohit,Prof. Prabhat Mathur
International Journal of Engineering Sciences & Research Technology , 2013,
Abstract: The term language means communication tool which is used to write Computer program and develop application, scripts, or other set of instructions for a computer to execute. Computer programming languages are used to write programs that define the behavior of a computer system. They are based on certain syntactic and semantic rules, which define the meaning of each of the programming language constructs. The syntactic and the semantic rules of every programming language define the language implementation. Programming languagesprovide computer programmers with the means to express computer algorithms. A programming language is a notation for writing programs, which are specifications of a computation or algorithm. [1] In computer technology, a set of conventions in which instructions for the machine are written called programming language. [2] Artificial Intelligence is a branch of Science which deals with helping machines finds solutions to complex problems in a more human-like fashion. This generally involves borrowing characteristics from human intelligence, and applying them as algorithms in a computer friendly way. A more or less flexible or efficient approach can be taken depending on the requirements established, which influences how artificial the intelligent behaviour appears. [1] AI is generally associated with Computer Science, but it has many important links with other fields such as Maths, Psychology, Cognition, Biology and Philosophy, among many others. Our ability to combine knowledge from all these fields will ultimately benefit our progress in the quest of creating an intelligent artificial being. [2] The Present work is to identify relationship between programming language and AI development. The main objective of the work is to study the Application of Programming language, role of Programming language in AI development, The Languages Used for AI Programming and computer programming from Machine language to Artificial intelligence (AI) or future perspective of AI. This work will help the researchers to understand the concept, application, role and types of programming languages which is used in development of AI.
On religion and language evolutions seen through mathematical and agent based models  [PDF]
M. Ausloos
Physics , 2011,
Abstract: (shortened version) Religions and languages are social variables, like age, sex, wealth or political opinions, to be studied like any other organizational parameter. In fact, religiosity is one of the most important sociological aspects of populations. Languages are also a characteristics of the human kind. New religions, new languages appear though others disappear. All religions and languages evolve when they adapt to the society developments. On the other hand, the number of adherents of a given religion, the number of persons speaking a language is not fixed. Several questions can be raised. E.g. from a macroscopic point of view : How many religions/languages exist at a given time? What is their distribution? What is their life time? How do they evolve?. From a microscopic view point: can one invent agent based models to describe macroscopic aspects? Does it exist simple evolution equations? It is intuitively accepted, but also found through from statistical analysis of the frequency distribution that an attachment process is the primary cause of the distribution evolution : usually the initial religion/language is that of the mother. Later on, changes can occur either due to heterogeneous agent interaction processes or due to external field constraints, - or both. Such cases can be illustrated with historical facts and data. It is stressed that characteristic time scales are different, and recalled that external fields are very relevant in the case of religions, rending the study more interesting within a mechanistic approach
