This book shows how the more than one-thousand current loanwords were adopted and demonstrates how the changing relationships between Indians and European settlers can be traced in the rate of loanword borrowing and the kinds of words adopted. Appalachian: from the Appalachian Mountains in the eastern United States, from the Muskogean name of the Apalachee tribe of Florida Moose: Eastern Abenaki mos; Papoose: Narragansett papoos, child; Squash: Narragansett askutasquash; Texas: from a Caddo word, meaning "friends" or "allies."

The activist tradition in American literature has long testified to the power of words to change people and the power of people to change the world, yet in recent years many professional humanists have chosen to distract themselves with a postmodern fundamentalism of indeterminacy and instability rather than engage with social and political issues. Throughout her bold and provocative call to action, Elizabeth Ammons argues that the responsibility now facing humanists is urgent: inside and outside academic settings, they need to revive the liberal arts as a progressive cultural force that offers workable ideas and inspiration in the real-world struggle to achieve social and environmental justice. Brave New Words challenges present and future literary scholars and teachers to look beyond mere literary critique toward the concrete issue of social change and how to achieve it. Calling for a profound realignment of thought and spirit in the service of positive social change, Ammons argues for the continued importance of multiculturalism in the twenty-first century despite attacks on the concept from both right and left. Concentrating on activist U.S. writers—from ecocritics to feminists to those dedicated to exposing race and class biases, from Jim Wallis and Cornel West to Winona LaDuke and Paula Moya and many others—she calls for all humanists to link their work to the progressive literature of the last half century, to insist on activism in the service of positive change as part of their mission, and to teach the power of hope and action to their students. As Ammons clearly demonstrates, much of American literature was written to expose injustice and motivate readers to work for social transformation. She challenges today’s academic humanists to address the issues of hope and purpose by creating a practical activist pedagogy that gives students the knowledge to connect their theoretical learning to the outside world. By relying on the transformative power of literature and replacing nihilism and powerlessness with conviction and faith, the liberal arts can offer practical, useful inspiration to everyone seeking to create a better world.

Brave New Word is three books in one-1) a dictionary, 2) a spelling game, 3) and an visual art book, conceived to be a thinking tool for every age and interest level; it's a new way to see and think about words we often use mindlessly. These are the words we haven't yet discovered-we all have them, we just don't see the value in them yet. It's great fun, wordplay is proof-but I believe that there is an unlimited source of intelligence and adventure yet to be awakened-within each of us.This book offers 101 Brave New Words-selected from thousands-conceived and illustrated by myself-Leonardo Ramirez. I call myself a Lexicon Artist- words are my creative medium, to use my own words-I'm a WordSculptor, a Puntificator, an Interpretortionist; I creating words-to review present word use and to explore and inspire new thoughts and ideas.I believe we can and must reconnect with our natural gifts of thinking and communicating; the acts of seeing, saying, hearing and thinking words are all different experiences, with willingness and an "open mind", I believe the implementing this thinking exercise will help us to begin using-choosing and-"feeling" the words we use. For over twenty years I've been on a voyage-thinking about our thinking-on many levels, literally looking at the words we all learned, effects of the words we use and those words projected upon us through our present day cultures. As simple as the idea of thinking seems, I don't believe we are doing our best thinking yet; I've been told this is more than a book-I've been told that this is-a movement. Somebody will create and determine the future-we just might have the intelligence to have a say in creating a reality that is beneficial to us all. I hope you enjoy the exercise, I look forward to any comments or suggestions that you may have. - Leonardo Ramirez-

RECHOICE-offers 50 Brave New Words chosen from a 50 person survey.Experience a word/thought transformation just by changing a letter or two,watch words evolve as does your thinking about the old and the new word.This book offers a simple-playful mental exercise that will help to developnew attention and focus needed to create fresh new ideas and perceptionsby using and developing all of our integrated senses with new awareness.Book One-Brave New Word/Open Mind Game-offers 101 illustrated newwords, a spelling game and my personal definotions of the words presented.We most often use words "automentally"-without thinking them. It helps tochallenge old perceptions to decide if they still serve our best thinking. I haveno intention of telling people what to think-but to encourage all to stretchexplore and to ignite their passions with the excitement of thinking-anew.People seem puzzled when asked if they have ever stopped to think abouthow and what they think. To make change we must be honest and openour minds to question whether our held beliefs came by indoctrinationor were learned by experience. Just as words have evolved throughouttime, the words we use to express our thoughts also need review for usto stay relevant and evolve if needed- to manifest our heartfelt desires. Little or no attention is given to thinking about the role that our senses play in helping process the constant flow of information we receive to create intelligence from words. To see, hear, think and speak words are all different experiences; learning to FEEL words ignites new thinking, curiosity, develops a conscious understanding of word choices and awakens our higher senses to ignite our personal inner-revolution. I hope you have fun- ReChoicing Words.

It is a department of the University of Oxford and is governed by a group of 15 academics appointed by the Vice-Chancellor known as the Delegates of the Press. They are headed by the Secretary to the Delegates, who serves as OUP's chief executive and as its major representative on other university bodies. Oxford University has used a similar system to oversee the Press since the 17th century. The university became involved in the print trade around 1480, and grew into a major printer of Bibles, prayer books, and scholarly works. Its Press took on the project that became the Oxford English Dictionary in the late 19th century, and expanded to meet the ever-rising costs of the work. As a result, the last hundred years has seen Oxford publish children's books, school text...

Brave New Digital Classroom examines the most effective ways to utilize technology in language learning. The author deftly interweaves the latest results of pedagogical research with descriptions of the most successful computer-assisted language learning (CALL) projects to show how to implement technology in the foreign language curriculum to assist the second language acquisition process. This fully updated second edition includes new chapters on the latest electronic resources, including gaming and social media, and discusses the realities and potential of distance learning for second language acquisition. The author examines the web, CALL applications, and computer-mediated communication (CMC), and suggests how the new technologically assisted curriculum will work for the foreign-language curriculum. Rather than advocating new technologies as a replacement for activities that can be done equally well with traditional processes, the author envisions a radical change as teachers rethink their strategies and develop their competence in the effective use of technology in language teaching and learning. Directed at all language teachers, from the elementary school to postsecondary levels, the book is ideal for graduate-level courses on second language pedagogy. It also serves as an invaluable reference for experienced researchers, CALL developers, department chairs, and administrators.
