Close your eyes. The world of dreams is calling. Forget about today’s problems, you will think about them tomorrow. After all everything that you want to tell about is already in the past. It is a grain of sand in a scale of our universe. Just close your eyes… And let Lu do his job. This cute dream carrier is ready to sell his soul to the devil for a ward’s satisfaction… but at the same time he will buy it back once his personal dream gets at stake.


"This volume is respectfully dedicated to Professor Tadeusz Majda, a renowned scholar in the fields of Oriental Studies and Art History. His numerous publications attest to his preeminent scholarly standing. But it is not the high number of his books and articles that alone mark him as a true teacher and a man of knowledge. It is the position he holds among his learned colleagues; the intense interest in his works shown by his disciples and students; the respect that he has earned among the public; and his values, wisdom, and gentle sense of humour that have all made him a true scholar, one to be followed. And of course there is his admirable elegance and charm. The scholarly fields represented by Professor Majda, Oriental Studies with a special focus on Turkology and the history of Oriental Art — mainly the art of the Middle East — are disciplines which require skills in multiple languages, a knowledge of history, a love of literature, a taste for the arts, an interest in Asia and many other traits and qualities, all of which have been acquired by Professor Majda.

The Council of Lithuanian Jews (Lithuanian Vaad) was the central representative organ of the Jews in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. It operated for nearly one and a half centuries (1623-1764), touching all spheres of the Jewish community's life. It undertook important initiatives for the benefit of its constituency at diets and dietines (legislative assemblies of the nobility), at the courts of the King and important magnates, and in non-Jewish courts of law. This book discusses the Council's activities in the context of processes and phenomena present in Jewish society of the time, illustrating the life of Lithuanian Jewry as a separate estate guided by a common sense of identity transcending local affiliation.

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?

Cudowna powieść o potędze książek, rodziny i magii

Simon Watson, młody bibliotekarz, mieszka samotnie w domu, który powoli osuwa się do zatoki Long Island. Jego matka utonęła w jej wodach, a młodsza siostra Simona, Enola, uciekła do cyrku.

Pewnego czerwcowego dnia, Simon dostaje tajemniczą starą księgę – uszkodzony przez wodę i nadwątlony przez czas dziennik właściciela wędrownego cyrku z końca osiemnastego wieku. Odnotowano w nim dziwne, magiczne zdarzenia – w tym utonięcie cyrkowej syreny. Od tego czasu w każdym pokoleniu w rodzinie Simona tonie „syrena”. Zawsze dwudziestego czwartego lipca. Ten dzień zbliża się wielkimi  krokami…

Czy nad rodziną Simona ciąży klątwa i co to ma wspólnego z księgą? Czy Simonowi uda się rozwiązać zagadkę na czas i uratować Enolę?

Erika Swyler, absolwentka New York University, pisarka i autorka sztuk, publikuje w periodykach literackich i antologiach. Urodziła się i wychowała na północnym wybrzeżu Long Island. Prowadzi kulinarny blog na platformie Tumblr Cookie Dough & Regret: Baking and Shame (ieatbutter.tumblr.com). Księga wieszczb jest jej pierwszą powieścią.

Oszałamiający debiut. Ta ekscentryczna, niecodzienna i urzekająca powieść wciągnęła mnie od pierwszej strony.

Sara Gruen, autorka U brzegu i Woda dla słoni

Wiky the Metal-Punk!: Siemanko :D.
Tercji przypadły do gustu moje zawodowe. Kiedy jednak zabrałam ją na polski, doświadczyła lekkiego szoku. Akurat mamy tematy związane z II wojną światową. Zapytałam się jej, czy chce się o tym uczyć. Powiedziała, że mimo, iż to straszne co działo się w Auschwitz chce wiedzieć więcej. Postanowiła też poczytać Opowiadania Borowskiego oraz lekcję z podręcznika, by dogłębniej zrozumieć temat. Nadal nie może pojąć tego jak ludzie potrafią być okrutni wobec innych...

A tak przy okazji jakieś dwa dni temu (16.02.2016r.) nasz kot, Maniek wytarzał się na dworze w jakimś, za przeproszeniem, gównie i śmierdział jak stary cap... Przylazł do domu cały mokry i normalnie takim mułem dawał... Nie pozostało nic innego jak wykąpać go. A wiecie jak większość kotów reaguje na wodę. Biedny... No ale przynajmniej teraz już nie śmierdzi :D.

Sabaton - "To Hell And Back". Cholernie polecam! :D.
  • awatar pнanтaѕмagoria.: Biedny kot... no ale sam sobie winien :D
  • awatar Wiky the Metal-Punk!: @pнanтaѕмagoria.: No niestety... Mógł nie próbować nowych "perfum". Nie przypadły nam do gustu xD.
  • awatar Mian: Trecja niech się kształci :D Ale cudowny kociak <3 Biedaczek. Hah, zwrot "cholernie polecam" do Sabatona jest najbardziej trafiony :D
