Opis:

Do we like phrasal verbs? Are we afraid of phrasal verbs? Who is “we”? Who is afraid of phrasal verbs? We, the learners of English. For learners of English phrasal verbs (PVs) are reportedly difficult to learn (see e.g. Darwin and Gray 1999) to the extent of being underused or avoided. Why therefore bother? The aim of this book is to verify Kamińska's (2005) study results, indicating that Polish learners of English do not avoid PVs, contrary to other English learners. Why PVs themselves? PVs are extremely common in native speech, and are therefore higly desirable by English non-natives.

Chapter by chapter, PV structure and semantics are discussed and analyses performed. Also, corpus linguistics is called for as the framework, within which the study is performed. Particular attention is paid to the Polish part of the LINDSEI corpus (Louvain International Database of Spoken English Interlanguage), as the source of linguistic evidence. Semantic analysis of the extracted PVs based on the notion of compositionality (see Celce-Murcia and Larsen-Freeman 1999; Armstrong 2004) constitutes the main part of the empirical chapter. The analysis was possible thanks to an important asset of this book, namely the POS-tagged PLINDSEI corpus. POS-tagging enabled the verification of the study by Kamińska (2005) because it automated the process of extraction making it reliable at the same time. It needs to be stressed that for spoken learner data to be POS-tagged with high accuracy, the CLAWS tagger (Garside 1987) needed to be trained. The result is a POS-tagged corpus with 98.5% accuracy. Following the findings, assumptions about the low use of phrasal verbs by learners are pointed to. In order to remedy learners' avoidance of phrasal verbs, a new way of PV presentation in popular English coursebooks is suggested.

The research questions posed are the following:

   Do learners avoid PVs? In the case of avoidance, is it statistically significant?
   Is the proportion of idiomatic (to non-idiomatic) PVs smaller in the learner group in comparison to the native group?
   Is there an observable rising trend of idiomatic compositionality in both speaker groups?
   Are there significant discrepancies in the number of phrasal verb tokens used by individual learners due to variation in exposure to the English language, defined as years studying English in a classroom situation?
   Are there significant discrepancies in the number of phrasal verb tokens used by individual learners due to variation in exposure to the English language, defined as time spent in an English-speaking country?

Wiky the Metal-Punk!: Siemka ^^.
Ostatnio odkupiłam od koleżanki obrożę dwurzędową z ćwiekami typu small spike. Już dawno planowałam zakup obroży, jednak jakoś z reguły plan ten szedł w niepamięć. A tu proszę, taka okazja się nadarzyła ^^. Poniżej wstawiam zdjęcia (Kowalski, opcje!, wybacz mi, że tak długo to trwało :c).

No i dla tych co Fałkę lubią, też została uwieczniona :D.

Autor: Br. Grimm  

Imagine a tiny boy, small as a finger; that’s Tom Thumb! A woodman and his wife have been waiting long for a child and very soon a son is born to them. But as the years pass, Tom grows hardly at all! Tiny he may be, but he has the heart of a lion. Tom decides to go and help with father chop wood and this is where his adventure begins. Follow Tom’s adventures through the forest; he rides on a horse’s ear, is eaten by a cow, swallowed by a wolf as all the while he tries to foil a pair of country robbers! Certainly Tom’s diminutive size has its disadvantages, but it can also be quite useful! Will Tom outsmart the animals’ intent on eating him and robbers determined to use him for their own nefarious ends?

Proving that size does not matter, when you have intelligence and courage, Tom Thumb has delighted generations of children and adults alike.

A cat, smart and cunning, clever and mischievous but very helpful: he is just the sort of friend we’d all like by our sides. The youngest of three orphan brothers is left destitute after his parents’ death. But such an apparently sad situation takes a quite unexpected turn for the better when he inherits what appears at first to be a small, quite ordinary cat. But it turns out to be the greatest inheritance of all! Our cat is not only clever and brave, but he is also a talking cat! And more importantly, what he has to say proves to be wise and very shrewd! Follow the adventures of our two heroes, as together they work to impress the king, win the heart of the princess, and outwit and defeat the evil ogre, with laughs and excitement along the way!

Puss in Boots is a tale of patience, bravery and clever thinking! We see how even the most apparently hopeless situation can be rescued with some thought and smart actions. If only we could all have a puss in boots standing by our side!
