The recent world medical condition (COVID 19) has triggered unimaginable changes to a domain where changes are well thought of long before implementation and where advancements are slow and costly. The domain is none other than education which has found itself deprived of the most basic facilitator: the physical presence of both teachers and pupils...

In the Romanian context, writing is in a paradoxical situation: it is claimed to be important though it is one of the skills that is little invested in and moreover it undergoes strong opposition from the parents who would opt for digitalization as a preventive opportunity for their children in the future. Mistreated by both school and society, wri...

În România, situația scrierii ca disciplină școlară este una paradoxală: deși discursul general o declară importantă, se investește tot mai puțin în această abilitate; în plus, suferă o puternică opoziție din partea părinților, care ar opta pentru competențe de scriere digitale, considerate mai de perspectivă pentru copiii lor. Minată atît de școal...

Mass-media are known for their representation function rather than their statement function as newspapers are means where reporting is the main activity. Yet, reporting presupposes an interpretation of somebody else's doings or statements which is far from being an objective perspective. Influenced by either personal factors (age, gender, education...

Cette recherche vise à gommer les modalités selon lesquelles les médias de masse instancie les attitudes discriminatoires envers les criminels masculins et féminins. Ancré dans les études de genre qui, bien que variées, sont toujours venus à la conclusion que la masculinité est généralement favorisée, la recherche analyse contrastivement l'expositi...
Article

This article is set up to multiple goals which all come around the concept of 'narratives'. Though extensive, the research on narratives in general, especially literary ones, will be sieved through so that essential, relevant information is presented to the support of this article's hypothesis. It firstly postulates the idea that narratives in gene...
Article
Full-text available
This research aims at identifying the linguistic manner in which criminality is rendered for the Romanian newspaper reader. For this purpose, a comprehensive analysis system called 'linguistic criticism' will include various morphologic-syntactic, pragmatic, but mostly semantic and sociolinguistic concepts which will attempt at deciphering a patter...

Pornind de la Lord (2008), care susține că „mulți cercetători studiază efectele L2 asupra limbii materne, dar puțini cercetători analizează efectele limbii materne asupra L2”, am decis să analizez în această lucrare greșelile produse de studenții români atunci cînd traduc propoziții care vizează timpuri verbale din limba română în engleză, pentru a...
Article
Full-text available
Starting from Lord (2008), who claims that ‘many researchers study the effects of L2 on mother tongue, but few researchers analyze the effects of mother tongue on L2’, I have decided to analyze in this piece of research the errors produced by Romanian students when translating tense-based sentences from Romanian into English, in order to establish...
Article
If modernity has provided a number of incredible technical advancements in the domain of gender and social gender representation, they have not succeeded in taking down all the barriers against the rigid social and familial representations of the roles of men and women and, respectively, of husbands and wives. In most societies women are assigned i...
Article
Full-text available
The in-betweenness of my research is the indeterminate space between being a man and talking like one and being a woman and talking like one. The control of that space is power-driven, and it consists of a permanent struggle to impose one’s discourse as a strong marker of one’s gender. Subliminally, gender takes control of one’s discourse, impregna...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Learning technical English may seem a hard-nut-to-crack due mainly to the vocabulary highly specialized for each technical domain. A further difficulty may arise from the polysemous meaning of technical words which may as well vary across or within domains to the point of getting learners confused about the meaning of the word. In translation exerc...
Conference Paper

If modernity has brought along a number of incredible technical advancements, in the domain of gender and social gender representation, though notable, the advancements have not succeeded in taking down all the barriers against the rigid social and familial representations of the roles of men and women, respectively, of husband and wife. In most so...
Presentation

In today’s modern world, technology has taken over all major parts of our lives. From a very young age, children are exposed to devices such as tablets, cell phones, game pads, game consoles, calculators, computers and so on which enables them to develop certain types of skills which haven’t quite been accounted for in traditional schooling. That i...

With the advent of social media, a recurrent theme in literature and psychology has turned into a major concern for psychologists and social scientists due to its blatant mismatch between a person’s real way of being and the one served as real in the social media. ‘Grandiose narcissism’, because this is the topic taken into consideration, has been...

The aim of this paper is to use dynamic mechanical analysis to examine the modifications of the elasto-dynamical properties of a composite made of small waste oak particles of various sizes (0.04 and 1 mm) and a polyester resin (440-M888 POLYLITE), subjected to photo-degradation by UV radiation and thermal degradations induced by temperature variat...
Book
Full-text available
This book is testing the hypothesis which claims that female criminals suffer further demeaning and downgradation due simply to their being women. In order to check my hypothesis I have chosen a comparative approach between a male and a female criminal, which could better emphasize the gender distinctions that are reflected in a Romanian broadsheet...
Article
Miscommunication can be defined as failure of communicating the intended meaning as well as failure of understanding the communicated meaning. Miscommunication can be intra-cultural and inter-cultural which accounts for the fact that it is not necessary for two speakers to belong to different cultures since miscommunication can appear between speak...
