The Enigma of the Polish form król and Jakobson’s Explanation of Slavic *tort forms
Audio-Visual

Description

Discusses the problematic issue of length reflexes in the o vowel of Polish *tort forms. Jakobson had assumed that the vowel o was a generalization of shortness, but this cannot explain the form król. Andersen’s theory of the relative chronology of short a > o is presented, along with a new proposal for a variable treatment of long o either as a single segment or a sequence of two shorts, accounting for the different *tort reflexes in Lekhitic-Sorbian and East Slavic.

In 1990, the Department of Education established the first Language Resource Centers (LRCs) at U.S. universities in response to the growing national need for expertise and competence in foreign languages. Now, twenty-five years later, Title VI of the Higher Education Act supports sixteen LRCs, creating a national network of resources to promote and improve the teaching and learning of foreign languages.

LRCs create language learning and teaching materials, offer professional development opportunities for language instructors, and conduct and disseminate research on foreign language learning. All LRCs engage in efforts that enable U.S. citizens to better work, serve, and lead.

8 Areas of Focus

Each LRC has a unique story and mission, but all LRC work is organized around eight basic areas:
  • Research
  • Teaching materials
  • Digital tools and resources
  • Assessment
  • Professional development
  • Less commonly taught languages initiatives
  • K-12 initiatives
  • Outreach and dissemination
