The results of the research have shown that young people use a large number of the elements of the language of new media in their mutual communication, but it is much less than in their written communication.</em> 2019-03-15T11:54:38+01:00 Copyright (c) 2019 The International Human Sciences Review https://journals.epistemopolis.org/humanities/article/view/1741 Drug Nicknaming in Western Algeria 2019-10-31T11:07:09+01:00 Zohra Labed zohralabed28@gmail.com <p>Illegal drug consumption is a long-run issue with a worldwide apprehension. Drug abusers identify themselves differently to remain far from public appearance and escape court institutions. Nicknaming drugs and their different types and forms constitute one way of drug abusing concealment and disguisement. Nicknaming involves a variety of practices that acquire full of positive and/ or negative connotations in society over time. Social practices carry cultural values that shape the nickname giver’s perception of the nickname bearer, a fact that can be reflected in the way the nickname is chosen within various fields. Nickname givers are alone responsible for allocating the exclusionary or inclusionary character to the nickname bearer. The present paper seeks to examine and analyse the various nicknames attributed to diverse types of such psychotropic substances by the Algerians with special reference to the west of multilingual and diglossic Algerian speech community. More particularly, how are drugs nicknamed in western Algeria? Which language varieties are involved in such nicknaming? Why are illegal drugs nicknamed at all? The findings at hand assign nicknames to physicality, mannerism, experience and/ or linguistic adjustments. Drug nicknaming nomenclature under study makes up importantly drug consumers’ secret language in the present setting.</p> 2019-03-19T15:51:07+01:00 Copyright (c) 2019 The International Human Sciences Review https://journals.epistemopolis.org/humanities/article/view/1901 A Hermeneutical reading of Postcolonial Literature: Fusion of Horizons in E.M. Forster's A Passage to India and Tayeb Salih's Season of Migration to the North 2019-10-31T11:07:09+01:00 Laila Bouziane bouziane.laila@gmail.com <p>Hans-Georg Gadamer has consistently advocated the idea of understanding as a form of “fusion of horizons” that implies the important and active role of each part of a cross-cultural encounter. This paper proposes philosophical hermeneutics as an alternative way of reading of postcolonial literature. E.M. Foster’s <em>A Passage to India</em> and Tayeb Salih’s <em>Season of Migration to the North</em>, are postcolonial literary examples of diversity and otherness which are analyzed in the light of the hermeneutical concept of “fusion of horizons”. These texts include a range of contexts and circumstances in which communication is challenged by the characters’ different cultural backgrounds, and understanding is only to be achieved through the process of “fusion” of horizons which helps rework prejudices in order to reach a clearer vision. In this context, the hermeneutical “fusion of horizons” represents an alternative to traditional ways of “knowing” and understanding.</p> 2019-03-19T15:51:15+01:00 Copyright (c) 2019 The International Human Sciences Review https://journals.epistemopolis.org/humanities/article/view/1943 Embodiment of Transformation from Scholasticism to Worldliness: Geoffrey Chaucer's the Canterbury Tales 2019-10-31T11:07:09+01:00 Tarik Ziyad Gulcu tarikzgulcu@yahoo.com <p>Although the medieval period is well-known for its otherworldly scholastic view of life, people’s gradual prioritization of material interests is arguably an embodiment of a transformation from scholastic to anthropocentric outlook on life and people. Along with common people’s interest in material gains, the ecclesiastical people’s interest in luxury and ostentation as well as acquisition of material profit are representations of the new paradigm in social area. The growing interest in worldly profits among the clergy and their indulgence in ostentation is the particular point of satire in Geoffrey Chaucer’s <em>The Canterbury Tales</em>. In this work, while Chaucer reflects the traits of an ideal person in the knight’s description in “General Prologue”, he deals with clerical corruption in “Reeve’s Tale”, the monk, the nun and the summoner’s depictions in “General Prologue”. While criticising the problematic aspects of the ecclesiastical class in medieval context, Chaucer transgresses the borders of his period and favours the expression of female individuality in “Wife of Bath’s Tale”. Hence, <em>The Canterbury Tales</em> invites reading in relation to Chaucer’s anxieties concerning medieval view of life and his position as a pioneer of a new anthropocentric social paradigm in literary context. </p> 2019-10-31T11:03:02+01:00 Copyright (c) 2019 The International Human Sciences Review https://journals.epistemopolis.org/humanities/article/view/2003 Natural Approach or Cognitive Approach. Learning or Acquiring a Foreign Language? Research Study at Centro de Lenguas de la Universidad Autónoma de Ciudad Juárez 2019-10-31T11:07:09+01:00 Enriqueta Claudia Serrano Romero enriqueta.serrano@uacj.mx <span>There is a big dilemma among instructors teaching English as a foreign language. Competence and teaching grammar rules are the primary pedagogical concern. Competence is directly related to the ability of proper grammar use of a language. However, methodological discussions end up accepting that grammatical rules are neither sufficient nor demonstrating the acquisition of the language. Learner students may have correctly learned grammatical rules, but some studies disagree on teaching only grammar because it will not be enough for students to speak forcefully. These circumstances lead to the discussion on the English Teaching method used at the Autonomous University of Ciudad Juárez (UACJ). This study aims to answer 1.) Which of the following approaches are more suitable to teach a second language, Natural Approach vs. Cognitive Approach? 2.) As to what extent should we emphasis grammar rules on teaching a second language to obtain the most benefit? Lastly, a sizable neurolinguistics portion of information is added to help us understand how the brain responds to learning a foreign language.</span> 2019-10-31T11:06:40+01:00 Copyright (c) 2019 The International Human Sciences Review
