The article explores elliptic forms of complex syntactic units in English and Azerbaijani. Depending
upon different situations there appear elliptic forms of complex syntactic units. The author tries to
prove that there are different kinds of elliptic sentences and they appear on the components of the
text and the previous and the following sentences.
Key words: incomplete, elliptic, construction, syntactical unit.

The elliptic forms of complex syntactic units are those complexes which the
missing of either principal or the subordinate clause in transform construction
doesnt seem to be incomplete either structurally or semantically.
Like the simple sentences, here the component undergone by ellipciss is not
needed to be restorated. It should be mentioned that not in all cases the ellipciss
of any component of complex syntactic units happens. On this account A.M.
Mukhin writes: Incomplete sentences are not only those sentences one of which
components is missed/ usually the previous and the following parts of the text can
be reconstructed/ but also are those which have no in reality the missing of the
component but have the colouring of outer content in them [1, p.178].

The elliptic forms of different complex syntactic units happen in different
situation. This difference of form, furthermore, is closely connected with those
constructions and out of which structural forms they have been sourced. The initial
semantico-grammatical characters of structural forms and their ways of expressing
lexically affect on their later development of the transformation process. In some
complex syntactic units the subordinate clause of the first component is parallel
to the predicate of different mood, tense and person paradigms of the second
component. The predicates of these parallel components are expressed by the same
lexical unit. In these constructions the predicate of the principal clause is usually
expressed by the verbs say (tell) in English and in Azerbaijani.
Sometimes they may be expressed by the verbs close in meaning to them. Two
elliptic forms are possible in such kind of complex syntactic units in compared
English and Azerbaijani languages.
I. In the first case consisting of a subordinate clause of object, the first component,
i.e. the principal clause undergoes the ellipciss.
In English
E.g. We are obeyed the order; pull down this building, we pull down, ruin this
street, we ruin, build a new building, we build a new one.
In Azerbaijani
; , , , -
, ,
In the above mentioned examples the predicate of the principal clause can be
expressed by the verbs say (tell), order, command, ask etc. in English and
, , , etc. in Azerbaijani.
But potentially the content of these structural units exist in elliptic constructions
themselves and they are thought to be easily reconstructed.
E.g. 1. We are obeyed the order, they say (order, command, ask) pull down this
building, we pull down, they say ruin this street, we ruin, they say build a new
building, we build a new one.
2. , ( , , ),
, , , , ,
, .
II. In the second case the subordinate clause of the first component which is
parallel to the second component is not used. It should be mentioned that this
case is not found in the English language.
E.g. : , .
: , , , . (.).
Analysing the above mentioned complex syntactic unit, we can see that in the
second component the subordinate object clause isnt used here. This
complex syntactic unit should be sounded like this.
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
E.g. : , , , , .
It should be mentioned that though there is informatic alikeness between
complete and incomplete forms, we cant find the semantic identity between them.
So the semantic shade of colouring in incomplete forms, especially emotional-ex-
pressive shades of colouring shows definite semantic separation. In such kind of
complex syntactic units there are some mixed types which exist not only two pa-
rallel components but more than two and in this case the previous components
remain wholly but the last component undergoes the ellipciss.
E.g. , , , , - ,
. (.).
There are three parallel constructions in the above mentioned complex syntactic
unit. While comparing them in paradigmatic line, we may observe that the principal
clause of the third parallel construction undergoes ellipciss. In comparison with
two previous parallel construction, that component must be reconstructed, like
this: , , .
The ellipciss of the principal clauses happens to be widely used in direct speech.
So using the proverbs and sayings in our speech we usually use before them the
authors words: there is such a saying / proverb, , father said
, they say so etc. and according to those expres-
sions the sentence constructions are used like this.
E.g. 1. There is such a proverb - A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
2. , , .
3. They say so dont look a gift horse in the mouth.
4. etc.
Unlike the English language, in Azerbaijani even both of these stable construc-
tions , are used simultaneously and they perform the function
of homogenous principal clause.
E.g. , : , .
There is a proverb in our language, they say out of sight, out of mind.
Proverbs and sayings are widely used among the creators of that language and
there is no any additional information of showing the source of the expression
and there is no need of using separate sentence structure (the principal clause).
On this account M.Adilov writes: The effect of proverbs is stronger than the
above mentioned principal clauses. It should be mentioned that the quantity of
words used in sentences and the effective feeling of words are non proportionate
[2, p.49]. In reality the missing of that mentioned standard sentence gives the
lightness to the complex syntactic unit and increases its effective force, emotional
shades of colouring.
E.g. 1. Hey, men, a good beginning makes a good ending.
2. , .
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
3. It is your fault, dont halloo till you are out of the wood.
4. , etc.
The predicate of the ellipciss of the principal clause expressed by the verbs say,
is not only connected with the proverbs and sayings, but also the other
constructions are observed in languages of different system.
E.g. 1. Cliff Shes hurt. Are you all right?
Alison Well, does it look it?
Cliff Shes burnt her arm on the iron.
Jimmy Darling, I am sorry
Alison Get out!
Jimmy Im sorry, believe me.
You think, I did it on pur
Alison Clear out of my sight (Modern English plays)
2. .
, (.)
Analysing the semantic interrelationship of the above mentioned complex
syntactic units it is proved that in English sentence the component you say is
abridged: Though they have structural completeness, thats the outer case. Their
wholly informative thought reveals the incompleteness. It is the same about the
Azerbaijani complex syntactic unit. Here in the second sentence the predicate of
the principal clause which is expressed by the verb is abridged.
The fact of ellipciss happens in such complex syntactic units the predicate of
which is expressed by the verb to see in English and in Azerbaijani
principal clauses. Without going into details it should be mentioned that such kind
of principal clauses demands the object subordinate clauses in both compared
languages. The results of investigation prove that in these complex syntactic units
the verbs see and are used in wh questions. And these sentences
express community and abstractness. In such type of complex syntactic units the
content of the question what, should be revealed. Here what, perform
the function of direct object in the sentence: what did we see?, ?.
The following sentence of this question may be either a simple sentence or a
complex syntactic unit. In the second case the object subordinate clause is used.
E.g. 1. Going what did we see?
We saw that she was sitting with her hands on her knees and thinking
2. ? ,
In answering to the verb saw which is used in the principal clause
and repeated twice. The usage and repetition of the verb saw, not only
hinders the speed speech but also restricts the effective and emotional force of the
The frequent usage of the verb to look, is a lot. In such kind of
complex syntactic units the ellipciss of the verbal predicate saw happen
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
and in the relationship of the semantic-grammatical relations of the components
behave strangely. Here the usage of the conjunction that, is not proved
itself. Here the semantic relation of the components is not on the surface but on
the deep structure of the complex syntactic units.
E.g. 1. He looked that the younger guests immediately had put one their skates.
2. , - .
3. Mr.Winkle looked that he was very pleased, but looked rather
4. , - .
In reality double situation happens in such kind of complex syntactic units.
The first one is that the question to what? ? was borne out of the
principal clause and it has more determining character. If we take this item into
consideration, then these complex syntactic units are considered to be the object
subordinate clauses. But we cant agree with this view point. In the second case the
interrelationship of the semantic and grammatical relations is one sided and it is
in outer frame, by means of it the corresponding relationship potentially seems to
be in the principal clause. On this account, it seems to us that those complex
syntactic units should be approached from the second position and they should
be presented as elliptic constructions. The verbs say, and see, -
are widely used in compared English and Azerbaijani languages and they can
easily pass their semantic weight to the other language units which are linked. By
the result of it the predicates expressed by those verbs in the principal clause, they
sometimes miss these verbs and they dont give any harm to the complex syntactic
E.g. 1. Hearing this, one of Mr.Winkles friends immediately lay on the
ground, Im dying.
2. i , - ,
3. One fine winter day Mr.Wardle entered the house that his friends
were staying and waiting for him.
4. ,
Analysing the above mentioned complex syntactic units we can observe that
the first two complexes embraced potentially the meaning of the verb says -
but in the last two complex syntactic units potentially the verbs saw,
existed. From this point of view those complex syntactic units are considered to
be object subordinate clauses. Some scholars dont pay attention to the ellipciss
here and treat these complex syntactic units as adverbial clauses of time. Though
these complex syntactic units are not of the same structure but close in meaning
to them. This view point is widely spread in Azerbaijani.
E.g. , . (When we came the party was organized)
While investigating this complex syntactic unit it is clear that there is no
semantic interrelationship of the components due to the time.
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
It happens when the expression at that time is used within that
complex syntactic unit.
E.g. , .
But in the above complex syntactic unit it is impossible to add the expression
. Here the object relation seems and it is realized with the homogeneous
predicate which underwent the ellipciss.
E.g. , .
(We came and saw that the party was organized)
Unfortunately the fact of ellipciss not always reconstructed resultatively but
also there are some elliptic complex syntactic units which are changed the types
of subordinate clauses by reconstructing them.
E.g. 1. Pilkins slowly stood up: who was that coming at this time?
2. - dn durdu, ?
Analysing the above mentioned complex syntactic units it has been proved
that who was that coming at this time? ? are not connected
with the principal clauses directly by the semantic-grammatical points wholly. The
reason is that in those complex constructions the subordinate clause, in reality, is
closely connected with the abridged expression in the principal clause. This may
be reconstructed by different ways. In the first case we may use the verb thought,
in the principal clause and we may be aware of the completing subor-
dinate clauses. In this case the type of subordinate clauses will be the object subor-
dinate clauses.
E.g. 1. Pilkins slowly stood up and thought who was that coming at this time.
2. - dn durdu , .
But in the second case not only the homogeneous predicate, but also the whole
principal clause which is interrelated with the subordinate clause is reconstructed.
E.g. 1. Pilkins slowly stood up and was in such a mind who was that coming
at this time.
2. dn durdu , .
By the result of this reconstruction the other relation between the components
may appear. Here the thought logical relation is the same but the grammatical
relation is quite different. So, in the second reconstruction the attributive subor-
dinate clauses are formalized.
There are some kinds of elliptic forms which depend upon the components of
the text within and without the previous and following constructions itll be
difficult to make the thought wholly. Such complex syntactic units are widely used
in Azerbaijani.
E.g. - , , ?
Soba, hey Soba, tell me where the geese flew?
- , .
Eat my rye cookey, Ill tell.
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
The girl rejected
- .
At my fathers I dont eat wheat floured cookey.
In the above mentioned dialogue the last complex syntactic unit seems to be
complete but it is in external form. But in reality this complex syntactic unit has
got the elliptic form. If that sentence is used out of the text itll express quite other
, ,
-I dont eat wheat floured cookey at my fathers, you say, Ill eat your rye cookey
This is the construction of concession having the relation in composite
compound sentence but the second component of which is wholly the object subor-
dinate clause. The ellipciss of that component causes the formation of an incomplete
form. So not going into the deep structure of this complex syntactic unit it is difficult
to show its semantic weight and reconstruct the whole structure by approaching
only the outer point.

How can I grab my students attention when discussing academic writing at the
university level? Even I am bored by the sound of the topic, and this is my field. In
fact, students around the world admit to dreading the act of writing. They fear writing
assignments more than a menial job or a strict parent. Sometimes this fear is based on
receiving a critique from a teacher, sometimes this, a response to not being taught the
fundamentals of writing. But how, in this generation who knows technology better than
me and most of my colleagues here and abroad, can I entice you to delight in the writing
process? You text. You twitter. You write announcements in incomplete sentences and
abbreviate phrases such as Oh my God to OMG, abbreviations that drive a writing
professor batty.
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
Perhaps to love writing takes a particular kind of person, but I dont think so. I
believe good writing comes in many forms and from sundry persons. Did you know
that there are academic articles about text messaging? One is titled The Syntactic
Aspects of Text Messaging(Ongonda,), which was written a woman who analyzes
medias influence on language. My students know what critical thinking is. Apply
analysis to text messaging and you have a cool project for an article. Consider Shakespeare
who has been written about for hundreds of years. The man still exists on the printed
page, not only in the classroom where his famous works are read, but also in relation
to academic analysis of literature. Topics of class division, love, jealousy, dysfunction,
and death never tire. To whom do we owe credit? To Shakespeare, of course, but also
to our scholars and their imaginations. Why? Because they thought critically and dared
to imagine a new way of seeing. If I were to give any advice, perhaps my colleagues
would want me to tell you to practice writing, to write an essay four times over, to
make it perfect, to study grammar more, to craft beautiful sentences. They are right.
These are elements of writing that are universal and, without such skills, you will not
be taken seriously as an academic or a specialist in your field. Do I love Chekov because
he wrote about a lady and her dog? Somewhat, yes, but I also love him for the rhythm
of his prose and the confidence in his writers voice, a distinct style that shaped his
adherents writing. My advice, if I were to give any, might be different. I might simply
want to say: dare to imagine, dare to create, and then dont stop working until your
vision is accomplished.
Allow me to use the bridge metaphor, tired yet true: Writing is a bridge to just
about any other field. Articles are published in the sciences, in translation, literature,
and law. Writing connects us to friends and family. We send emails, text messages,
and nowadays, more than ever are reading the words of a person, not the gestures of a
person. Writing has power. What we read in the newspaper affects us. We whisper
news into friends ears; we call each other on the phone. When we read a good piece
of writing, words influence us more than we can understand. We carry words in our
heads. We carry memories of how we felt reading a particularly moving story or even
a well-written article. We remember when someones thoughts challenge our own,
especially when an opinion or idea makes us uncomfortable, and we remember when
someone has written so well, and we take that as a challenge to do better.
Learning to write in the international style that I have introduced to my class is not
only a bridge to other fields, but the international style is a bridge to other cultures
worldwide. Good research distinguishes a strong professor from a weak professor.
Good research sets a student apart from his or her peers not just in the classroom, but
internationally. And, good research connects students and professionals to others with
similar interests. A good researcher challenges what has been accepted and attempts
to shine a new perspective on a subject.
Good research excels you in your chosen field. Qafqaz is the leading university in
research. Perhaps, as young adults, you dont yet realize how impressive this role is
for your university and your future. You are actually part of its growth and expansion,
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2

and I ask you today to take an active role. You are, after all, molding your country by
what you write and by how you write. You have more power than you understand. Use
it, and use it well. Be a representative of Azerbaijan and, specifically, Qafqaz University.

In our study we were able to reinforce the notion that NYC is becoming a more unified speech
community however the NYC department stores are still differentiated in a fixed order based on social
stratification and that those jobs in those places are evaluated by employees in the same order.

In 1962 William Labov studied one of New York Citys (NYC) most salient features
of its stereotyped accent; the r-lessness of its speakers. He believed that the (r) variable
(realized as either [r] or [] ) could mirror the citys social stratification, if any two
sub-groups of NYC speakers are ranked on a scale of social stratification, then they
will be ranked in the same order by their differential use of (r) (Labov 2006: 41).
Because the [r] variant is considered to be the better sounding than its [] counterpart,
it is said to carry overt prestige; Meyerhoff (2006: 37) defines an overtly prestigious
variant as the one, associated with the highest social classes or more powerful speakers
in a community. Labov set out to see if the prestigiousness of the (r) variable would
be related to the social stratification of three department stores and their workers. In
2009, we attempted to duplicate Labovs study to verify whether the same predictable
stratification patterns he observed still remain intact in the social fibers of the speech
community. More specifically, we attempted to investigate whether the workers would
be socially (and linguistically) stratified along similar and predictable lines and if there
would still be a clear correlation between the (r) variable and the status ranking of the
department stores, i.e., the higher the stratification of the store, the more realizations
of (r). Using Labovs Rapid and Anonymous (R+A) survey, we elicited two casually
uttered tokens of fourth floor (pre-consonantal and word-final [r] are unrealized in the
stereotyped pronunciation), and two carefully uttered tokens from the department stores
workers. Like Labov our goal was to engage the sales people in a very simple and quick
speech event. It was also paramount that the exchange be as natural as possible, which
brings up the issue of the Observers Paradox; since [r] is considered to carry overt
prestige, people would theoretically be more likely to pronounce [r] if they were aware
that we were paying attention to their speech. Therefore, the tokens could be misrep-
resentative of natural NYC speech and result in the data possibly being skewed in terms
of overall realizations of [r]. One of the major advantages of Labovs R+A methodology
is that it attempts to limit the effects of the Observers Paradox. As the interviewers
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
we individually approached a random employee and asked them where a particular item
could be found, which elicited the casual response fourth floor. The second exchange
occurred where the interviewer said excuse me? and the employee then more carefully
and emphatically repeated fourth floor. After the conclusion of the speech event,
we recorded the data of the (r) occurrences (the dependent variables) in both the casual
and emphatic speech and also included the same independent variables as Labov: the
store, occupation, floor within the store, sex, race, age [estimated in five year increments],
and any noticeable foreign or regional accent. Our data, consisting of 252 (r) variants
from 63 speakers, reveals that the (r) stratification is still a salient linguistic variable in
NYCs speech community and that the phenomenon still occurs in a pattern that preserves
the social stratification between the three department stores. Most importantly, our data
also suggests that, although the r-less variant is still prevalent, [r] is becoming more
common in NYC. Comparing the data to Labovs, a pattern emerges of an over-all,
though not evenly, increase of r-pronunciation. Our reproduction of Labov's study
reinforces the notion that NYC is a unified speech community and also suggests that
due to the increasing realization of [r], the city's speakers are becoming even more

The essence of good writing is precision and clarity and the use of abbreviations seems an ideal way
to ensure these essentials. An abbreviation is a shortened form of a word or phrase. Usually, but not always
it consists of letters or group of letters taken from the word or phrase. The purpose is to provide readily-
understandable substitutes for groups of words and so aid the reading effort. However there are very few
abbreviations that their forms have been standardised internationally. The phenomenon of abbreviation
reflects perfectly the spirit of our dynamic epoch. We use them frequently to transmit much information
during the shortest period of time.
Abbreviation is a comparatively new linguistic phenomenon. The practice of abbreviating terms became
convenient, because literacy rose, and advances in science and technology brought with them more com-
plicated terms and concepts. Certain abbreviations can mean different things to different people. In some
fields, including chemistry, medicine, computer science, and geographic information systems abbreviations
are used so frequently that the reader can feel lost in an alphabet soup. However, the main purpose for using
these devices is to improve the reading process, fostering fluent readability and efficient comprehension.
Writers overuse abbreviations, not realizing the problems they cause readers. But they should only
use them for the convenience of the reader. We should better to remember what Shakespeare once observed:
Who understands thee not, loves thee not. The main aim of this paper is trying to provide solutions for
eliminating abbreviations.
Key words: abbreviation, acronym, stunt acronym.
An abbreviation (from Latin brevis, meaning short) is a shortened form of a word
or phrase. Usually, but not always, it consists of a letter or group of letters taken from
the word or phrase.
Abbreviation is a popular way of forming words. It is a comparatively new linguistic
phenomenon. The last decade of the 20
century and the 21
century have brought
with them new abbreviations. Not everyone knows how to use them, because many
abbreviations are used in one sphere and we can not use them in other spheres. At first,
abbreviations were sometimes represented with different signs, not only full stops. For
example, er were replaced with , as in mast for master.[3]
Abbreviations are used to save time and space, and to make long names of organi-
zations and long technical terms easier to remember and less boring to refer to repeatedly
in an extended piece of writing such as a newspaper article or textbook.
There are two main types of abbreviations: graphical and lexical.
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
Graphical abbreviations are the result of shortening of words and word-groups only
in written speech while, orally the corresponding full forms are used. They are used for
the economy of space and effort in writing. For instance, sec. - second, D.M.- Doctor
of Medicine. These are English origin. But when we use graphical abbreviations of
Latin origin in the spelling we shorten Latin words, while orally we pronounce English
equivalents in the full form: p.a.-a year (per annum), lb - pound (libra), i. e.-that is (id
est) etc. Initial abbreviations are the bordering case between graphical and lexical
There are three types of initialisms in English:
a) initialisms with alphabetical reading, such as UK, MPA, CND etc.
b) initialisms which are read as if they are words, e.g. : UNESCO, UNO, NATO etc.
c) initialisms which coincide with English words in their sound form, such initialisms
are called acronyms, e.g. CLASS (Computer-based Laboratory for Automated School
We may unite group b and c into one group, which we call acronyms. Some scien-
tists accept it, but others not. All acronyms are abbreviations, but not all abbreviations
are acronyms.
Lexical abbreviations are classified according to the part of the word which is
clipped. E.g.: intro (introduction), copter (helicopter), fanzine (fan magazine), tec
(detective). [4]
The abbreviations are the most intensively developing units of English. There is
the distinctive interest to them in modern linguistics. Abbreviations, the subject of our
analysis, make our life easier. However, when using them, we shouldnt overdo it.
The more we use abbreviations the more our text will be vague to read. We should
introduce an abbreviation only if: 1. the term appear at least three times in each part
of our work; and 2. the term consists of at least three words. There are also some abb-
reviations that are better known than the words they stand for and do not have to be
explained in the text or added to the list of abbreviations. E.g.: AIDS (acquired immu-
nodeficiency syndrome), CD-ROM( compact disk read only memory),PIN(personal
identification number), UNICEF (United Nations Childrens Fund).If an abbreviation
is better known than the spelled-out form, we may give the abbreviation even if the term
is used only once.[2,1]
Some acronyms are truly hidden names. They are spelled out and treated as
ordinary words and follow the capitalization rules. After a while we may even forget
that they were once special creations:
Scuba= Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus
Radar=Radio Detecting And Ranging
Laser=Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation
Not all acronyms are created. Some are discovered by attentive readers. Such false
abbreviations provoke unintended smiles. In the 1970s, Richard Nixons opponents had

great fun pointing to the acronym formed by the initials of the Committee to Re-Elect
the President: CREEP.[1,5]
Stunt acronyms, which are created for a specific, often political purpose can help
groups get attention. For instance, MADD -Mothers Against Drunk Driving. CAVE-
Citizens Against Virtually Everything. These stunt acronyms are not the problem. They
can be useful and even entertaining. Acronyms can be handy. The real problem lies
with initial abbreviations, the greatest destroyer of meaning in modern publications.
Most initial abbreviations are difficult to understand.
Every business, school, laboratory and agency has its own language, which consists
of unique abbreviations. For instance, to the Shipping Department the abbreviation
QA may mean Quick Action, while for the Manufacturing Department, QA
means Quality Assurance. CD may refer to certificate of deposit in Accounting,
coefficient drag in Engineering and Compact disk everywhere else. Whenever
possible we should avoid using abbreviations.
Of course, if you are using a common abbreviation such as PC to mean personal
computer and the context makes this clear, there's no real problem. But if you are using
it for another term, such as: Postal Clerk or Production Control, then such a common
abbreviation can still be a problem. The abbreviation PC means different things to
different groups. In Law: probable cause, physical containment, personally corrupt,
police constable. In Medicine: peripheral clarity, perforated cranium, prostate cancer.
In Military: power converter, production control, pass certified, Peace Corps. Not only
common people, but also inexperienced members of any organization may misunderstand
an abbreviation or acronym. For example the Federal Highway Administration has
a program known as ISTEA (pronounced ice tea). Naturally enough, the acronym
gets spelled as ICE TEA(1,6)
Such confusion shows that these writers dont really understand the term. Because
they clearly dont know what the letters stand for, they only want to sound learned, well-
informed. But in reality, the words forming this acronym is - Intermodal Surface
Transportation Efficiency Act.
To eliminate the problems mentioned above we want to introduce the following
1. We should better avoid abbreviations as many as possible.
2. We may use them only if they are convenient for our readers.
All readers must know exactly what we mean. Spelling abbreviations out may
irritate our readers.
3. Converting abbreviations into words as many as possible is also the effective way.
We should prefer to use the full words - Vice President, not VP.
It would be suitable to use an alternative - computer's memory, not RAM (Random
Access Memory).
4. If it is convenient for the reader to use an abbreviation in a long document, we must
try to spell out its meaning in brackets the first time we use it. For example: CBT
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
(computer-based training).But if the abbreviation is familiar to the reader, there is
no need to spell it out. For example, if we write to a government official, we would
not need to spell out any of the abbreviations in the following sentence: The CIA
has examined FAAs security procedures at US airports.
5. We should better not use periods or stops between letters. The modern trend is to
leave out the periods or stops in abbreviations and acronyms.
For example: U.S.A. or USA. Both of them are true, but lets try to prefer the second
I want to finish the paper with the words of Confucius:
If language is not correct then what is said is not what is meant;
If what is said is not what is meant, then what ought to be done remains undone...

Conforming circumstances every language has transition because of time requirements. So English
language had some changes due to various reasons from the time it was created until today and its lexicon
also changed. It can be considered as an advantage but sometimes entering of new words or coining neo-
logisms in language can be out of control. Then the miserable picture we will get is inevitable. Basically,
the formation history of English language, entering and coining process of new words, pros and cons of
this matter were represented in this article.

Language is not an abstract construction of the learned, or of dictionary-makers, but is something
arising out of the work, needs, ties, joys, affections, tastes, of long generations of humanity, and has its
bases broad and low, close to the ground. Its final decisions are made by the masses, people nearest the
concrete, having most to do with actual land and sea. (Slang in America, Walt Whitman, 1885)
Everyday English consists of non-standard or informal features of the language, especially slangs,
phrases and idioms which are popularly adopted in the U.S., U.K. and other English speaking countries.
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
This research paper contains of some information about idioms, slang, jargons, colloquialism and dialects
that are ingredients of informal language and the usage of them in informal American speech.
Key words: informal, slang, idiom, jargon, colloquialism, dialect.
No living language is simply one set of words which can be used the same way in
all situations. There are an infinite variety of different ways to arrange the elements of
language. It means that we can express the same thing in different ways, depending
where we are, who we are talking to and how we feel. We cant talk to friends mother
in the same manner we would talk to our friend. We cant talk to a bartender the same
way we would talk to a judge. The degree of formality of the situation in which we are
attending, one of the main factor that determine which words and expressions are
appropriate in given case.
As Antrushina stated that informal vocabulary is used in ones immediate circle;
family, relatives or friends and this style is relaxed, free and easy, familiar and unpre-
tentious. ( ; .. , ., ,
.. . 2004; p.31) Informal language is allowed in our everyday life, such
as, while playing sports, while studying with friends, at the party, with close family
members, while shopping etc. Informal English gives us a chance to deliver our thoughts
easily with simple words, idioms, phrases and so on which are away of difficult cons-
Tomasz P.Srynaski gave some peculiar characteristics of informal English (http://
1. Typically used in improvised speech when the speaker is speaking without pre-
paration, as in a conversation (in real life or over the phone). It also occurs in writing
usually when the writer is writing quickly and without editing. eg; in an internet
chat room or in personal e-mails.
2. Sentences are shorter and simpler, eg; Looks like the discounts have actually worked.
3. Informal English contains useful everyday phrases like Here you are. Come again?
4. Phrasal verbs are used frequently. People prefer to say found out instead of disco-
vered, got away instead of escaped.
5. Words and phrases are sometimes pronounced in a shortened and simplified way,
eg; Lemme go! Whassup? Whatch a gonna do?
An informal style approximates the cadence and structure of spoken English while
conforming to the grammatical conventions of written English. "(G.J.Alred, C.T.Brusaw,
and W. E. Oliu, Handbook of Technical Writing, 9th ed. St. Martin's Press, 2008)
Prof. Argenis A.Zapata (2008) stated that vocabulary use of informal English is
somehow liberal and includes lots of cliches, colloquialisms, idioms, phrasal verbs,
proverbs and slang.
Most idioms have a nonliteral meaning. The meanings of words are arbitrarily sti-
pulated in memory. The meanings of phrases and sentences, however, are derived
compositionally from the meanings of their individual words and their syntactic structure.
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
Since the meanings of idioms cannot be derived compositionally by the morpho-syn-
tactic rules of a language (e.g. the meaning of kick the bucket cannot be derived from
the meanings of the words kick, the andbucket), the standard belief is that they too
must be arbitrarily stipulated in memory .(Chomsky, 1980; Cruse, 1986; Fraser, 1970;
Katz 1973).
Most idioms are fixed and its impossible to change the order of its elements. Its
allowed to make substitutions of synonymous words into idioms without loss of their
idiomaticity. For example, in the idiom John gave up the ghost (= John died), we cannot
replace ghost by apparition.
For most idioms, we can establish some relation between their meaning and their
form. In fact, the meanings of an idiom's elements often play a role in the way we use
and understand idiom strings in conversation (Cacciari, 1993; Cacciari & Glucksberg,
1991; Gibbs, 1990; Gibbs & Nayak, 1989; Gibbs et al, 1989 a, b ; Keysar & Bly, 1995,
Most idioms are single items of vocabulary and they are language and culture speci-
fic. So they make sense or meaning mainly to the speakers of a given language or the
members of a given culture and they cant be translated word for word into other lan-
The Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary (2007) defines slang as very informal
words and expressions that are more common in spoken language, especially used by
a particular group of people; for example, children, criminals, soldiers etc.
According to Keith Allan and Kate Burridge: "The most significant characteristic
of slang overlaps with a defining characteristic of jargon: slang is a marker of in-group
solidarity, and so it is a correlate of human groups with shared experiences, such as
being children at a certain school or of a certain age, or being a member of a certain
socially definable group, such as hookers, junkies, jazz musicians, or professional crimi-
nals." (Keith Allan and Kate Burridge, Forbidden Words. Cambridge Univ. Press, 2006)
Carl Sandburg gives more metaphorical definition: "Slang is a language that rolls
up its sleeves, spits on its hands, and goes to work." (Carl Sandburg)
"Slang serves the outs as a weapon against the ins. To use slang is to deny allegiance
to the existing order, either jokingly or in earnest, by refusing even the words which
represent conventions and signal status (James Sledd, "On Not Teaching English Usage."
The English Journal, Nov. 1965)
As we know most people are individuals who desire uniqueness, it stands to reason
that slang has been in existence. Even so the question of why slang develops within a
language has been debated. The Historical Dictionary of American Slang points out
that many groups use slang largely because they lack political power. Its simply a
safe and effective way that people rebel against the establishment.
Besides this, slang can be used for number of reasons like to be picturesque, arresting,
and different from others, to avoid common words, to demonstrate ones spiritual
independence, to sound modern and up to date and so on.

Jargon is similar to slang - it is a specific set of words and phrases which are unique
to a small group of people. Jargon is work-related slang.
"Jargon is the verbal sleight of hand that makes the old hat seem newly fashionable;
it gives an air of novelty and specious profundity to ideas that, if stated directly, would
seem superficial, stale, frivolous, or false." (David Lehman)
Jonathan Guthrie called jargon poetry of modern business: "Jargon is the epic poetry
of modern business. It can turn a bunch of windbags in a meeting room into a 'quick
wins taskforce.' I once asked a handyman toiling in an office doorway whether he was
installing a wheelchair ramp. 'No,' he said solemnly, 'it's a diversity access feature.'"
(Jonathan Guthrie, "Three Cheers for the Epic Poetry of Jargon." Financial Times,
Dec. 13, 2007)
"Generally, when people use jargon not to communicate but to impress their audien-
ces with their importance . . . or use it to announce membership in a group, communi-
cation suffers and the jargon can quickly degenerate into something close to the twitte-
ring of birds."(W. Lutz, "Jargon." Oxford Companion to the English Language, 1992)
Most of the time, jargon evolves because the people in a certain job need to use
certain words and terms which don't mean much to people not working in those areas
or with those machines. However, sometimes you get "corporate jargon" in which large
companies or offices deliberately create slogans which become jargon-these are usually
elaborate ways of saying things which could be said much more simply, and are used
so show that you are a "team player."
K. Allen and K. Burridge states that many people think that jargon should be cen-
sored. However, close examination of jargon shows that, although some of it is vacuous
pretentiousness and its proper use is both necessary and unobjectionable.
Colloquialism would be the language, words and phrases used in casual situations
by the people, as opposed to formal language.
Over the last generation writing has become more informal than it ever was before.
The area of highly formal writing has shrunk considerable, like state papers, articles
in learned publications, legal documents, court decisions and so on. Other writing has
become quite hospitable to so -called colloquialism, it has become more informal,
more relaxed, more familiar, more casual. (Theodore Bernstein, The Careful Writer.
Simon & Schuster, 1995)
A really good example would be to look at the way different people refer to
carbonated drinks - in the United States, we can tell where you are from by how you
ask for your beverage! People in the northeastern and middle states call it "pop," while
people in the western states say "soda." People in the south ask for a "coke" or for "dope!"
According to November publication of Time magazine (1954) The United States
colloquialisms evolve slowly. 'Jag,' 'tops,' 'dude' stayed around for decades before they
began to lose their freshness ("Far-Out Words for Cats" Time magazine, Nov. 8, 1954)
Colloquial language is the low variety language which is popularly used by people
most of the time, so it is an everyday language used at home; with families and friends;
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
at shops etc. but not used at offices, educational institutions, formal conversations, or
Dialect is a regional or social variety of a language distinguished by pronunciation,
grammar, or vocabulary, especially a way of speaking that differs from the standard
variety of the language. The scientific study of dialects is known as dialectology.
"Some people think of dialects as sub-standard varieties of a language, spoken only
by low-status groups--illustrated by such comments as 'He speaks correct English,
without a trace of dialect.' Comments of this kind fail to recognize that standard English
is as much a dialect as any other variety--though a dialect of a rather special kind, because
it is one to which society has given extra prestige. Everyone speaks a dialect-whether
urban or rural, standard or non-standard, upper class or lower class." (D. Crystal, How
Language Works. Overlook, 2006)
This study allowed me to find out information about informal English of America. I
was able to know how people use informal elements like slang, idioms, jargons and
so on in their everyday speech. As we know people prefer changes and being special.
They maintain it in their speech as well and avoid using trite phrases, expressions and
word-combinations. English language is very rich and one can express his or her thoughts
in numerous ways. So people use some idioms, slang, and jargons in their speech in
order to avoid monotonous utterance and such elements of informal language make
speech more vivid. All languages are developing continuously and it creates favorable
condition for invention of new words to make speech more colorful.

The English language is the most widely spoken of the Germanic languages. More than one billion
people use this language as a native or a secondary language. As a matter of fact, such a large number of
people all around the world speak English means that therere many dialects and varieties. No human
language is fixed, uniform, or unvarying; all languages show internal variation. Actual usage varies from
group to group, and speaker to speaker, in terms of the pronunciation of a language, the choice of words
and the meaning of those words. The two major varieties used by people that have English as a native
language are British English and American English. Between British English and American English there
are different variations of vocabulary, spelling and phonology. Probably, the major differences between
these two varieties lies in the choice of vocabulary. This article compares the forms of British and American
English vocabulary in the area of education are mainly reflected on the fields of school, university and some
general terms.
Key words: British English, American English, school, public school, college, student, pupil, professor,
graduate, take an exam.

There is a difference between American and British usage in the word school. In
British usage school by itself refers only to primary and secondary schools and to sixth
forms attached to secondary schools - if one "goes to school", this type of institution
is implied. By contrast an American student at a university may talk of "going to school"
or "being in school". US law students and medical students almost universally speak
in terms of going to "law school" and "med school", respectively.
While comparing school years in British (except Scotland) and American English
we can notice that the secondary school in the United States also includes middle school
or junior high school which is two or three year transitional school between elementary
and high school. Lets pay attention the difference in the definition of public school in
these two countries. It is government-owned and supported by taxpayers in the US,
while in the UK it refers to ill-defined private independent schools funded by students
fees. However, those schools supported by government are called state school in the

The word college is different in its usage too. In the US it refers to a post-high
school institution that grants either associate's or bachelor's degrees, but in the UK it
refers to any post-secondary institution that is not a university. In both the US and UK
college can refer to some division within a university such as the "college of business
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
and economics" though in the UK "faculty" is more often used. Institutions in the US
that offer two to four years of post-high school education often have the word college
as part of their name, while those offering more advanced degrees are called a university.
Among high-school and college students in the United States, the words freshman,
sophomore, junior and senior refer to the first, second, third, and fourth years respectively.
Many institutes in both countries also use the term first-year as a gender-neutral rep-
lacement for freshman, although in the US this is recent usage, formerly referring only
to those in the first year as a graduate student. One exception is the University of
Virginia; since its founding in 1819 the terms "first-year", "second-year", "third-year",
and "fourth-year" have been used to describe undergraduate university students. In the
UK first-year university students are sometimes called freshers early in the academic
year; however, there arent specific names neither for those in other years, nor for
school pupils. Graduate and professional students in the United States are known by
their year of study, such as a "second-year medical student" or a "fifth-year doctoral
In the UK a university student is said to study, to read or informally to do a
subject. In the recent past the expression to read a subject was more common at the
older universities such as Oxford and Cambridge. In the US a student studies or majors
in a subject .To major in something refers to the student's principal course of study; to
study may refer to any class being taken.

At university level in BrE, each module is taught by a lecturer or tutor; professor
is the job-title of a senior academic. In AmE each class is generally taught by a professor
(although some US tertiary educational institutions follow the BrE usage). A British
professor is not exactly equivalent to a US professor, because the latter category divides
into three levels: full professor, associate professor, and assistant professor. In the UK,
the ranks below professor are reader, then senior lecturer (though some universities
treat these grades as equivalent in salary, but different in function), then lecturer.

In the UK, a student is said to sit or take an exam, while in the U.S., a student takes
an exam. The expression he sits for an exam also arises in BrE, but only rarely in AmE.
American lawyers-to-be sit for their bar exams and American master's and doctoral
students may sit for their comprehensive exams, but in nearly all other instances,
Americans take their exams. When preparing for an exam students revise (BrE)/review
(AmE) what they have studied.
In the US anyone who finishes studying at any educational institution by passing
relevant examinations is said to graduate and to be a graduate, but in the UK only
degree and above level students can graduate. These days student itself has a wider
meaning in AmE. It is used more and more for people studying above the primary
school level, but pupil is still used in secondary school contexts as well. Pupil is
understood in AmE, but generally not used - all learners in institutions of education are
students in AmE. Whereas in BrE it tends to be used for people studying at a post-
secondary educational institution and the term pupil is widely used for a young person
at primary or secondary school.

Of two major varieties of English, American English has begun to influence the
English spoken in Europe. Nevertheless, British English is still dominant in the schools
and universities. Furthermore, most teachers speak British English and most educational
material is based on the British English variety.

varabilen byk bir alanda konuulan bir dil ailesidir.Ayrca Altay Kolunda Trk dilleri,
Mool,Manu Tunguz ve Japon ve Kore dilleri bulunur.Trk Dilleri iinde Mool,
Manu, ve Tunguz dillerinin bu soydan geldii kesin olarak kabul edilmekle beraber,
Japon ve Kore dillerinin Altay Dil Ailesine ait olup olmad halen tartmal bir konudur.
Altay Diller Ailesi kendi iinde de gruplara ayrlr:
Ouz,Kpak,uva,Uygur,ve Yakut baca kollardr.Ouz Kolu iinde: Trke,
Azerice ve Trkmence yer alr.
Japon dili ve Kore Dili ise izole dil olarak adlandrlr. Ancak enteresan olan nokta
Trk dili ve Japon dilinin ayn gramatik zellikleri tamasdr.
Trk Dilinin zellikleri unlardr:
1. Sondan eklemeli bir dildir
2. n ek almazlar
3. nl uyumu gzetilir
4. Cinsiyet ayrm yaplmaz
5. Soru eki kullanlr
6. zne Nesne, Yklem uyumu vardr
Yukarda ki bu zellikler aynen Japon dilinde de geerlidir.Bu benzerlikler, Japon
dilinin de Altay Diller Ailesi iinde olduuna dair gl benzerliklerdir.Dil akrabaln
glendiren dnce, biim benzerliidir.Bu akrabalk gnmzde tam olarak kabul
gren bir dnce deildir. Baz aratrmaclar Japon dilini Kore dilinin bir lehesi
olarak kabul ederler, ancak bu fikir de kesin olarak kabul grmemitir.Japon dili ve
Trk dilinin biim ve gramatik benzerlikler dnda dikkat ekici bir nokta da ses ben-
zerliklerinin ve hatta kelime benzerliklerini olmasdr.Buna rnek olarak aagdaki
kelimeleri gsterebiliriz:
Trke Japonca Trke Japonca
Kyotonun Kyotonu Ara Ada
Ankaraya gitti Ankara itta Yukar Agaru

rabal dndren ve aratrmaya iten somut sebeplerden saylabilir.Yalnzca Trk

zellik bulunuyor.Ural-Altay dillerinin en belirgin zellikleri Japon dilinin iinde de
mevcuttur.Altay dillerinin birka zellii unlardr:
1. nl Uyumunun bulunmas
2. Eylem eklerinin okluu
3. Dilsel cinsiyet ayrmnn bulunmamas
4. Adlarda belirli belirsizlik edatlarnn olmamas
5. ntak yerine sontak bulunmas
6. Soru edatlarnn azl
7. balalarn azl
8. Sz banda (r)nsznn bulunmamas
9. Adllarn Hint-Avrupa dillerinden farkl biimde ekimlenmesi
Bu gibi rnekler, Japon dilinin Ural-Altay dil ailesi iinde olduu savn glen-

etkilenmeler olmutur, Trke temasta olduklar bu dillere kelimeler vermi ve baka
dillerden de kelimeler almtr.

In this research paper our purpose is to indicate differences and similarities using of subject as a rheme
in Azerbaijani and English. From the point of view of communicative effective , the important positions
in the clause are the initial and final position. We have examined separately the two structures involved,
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2

which are mapped on to each other. The Theme-Rheme thematic structure and Given-New information
Theme and Rheme is also called Active and Passive Alternative. It means that, the topic/ theme of
the sentence is called Active Alternative , and rheme is called Passive Alternative. In contrast to rheme,
theme gives information about previous talking or life experience to speaker.
We encounter using of subject as a rheme in literature. Logical stress and Intonation helps us to find
out rheme in a sentence . That is why we can understand the rheme in speaking more than writing.
Generally speaking, there some elements which can help us to distinguish Theme from Rheme: word
order, intonation, auxiliary verbs , lexical repetition.
Key word: theme, rheme, intonation, word order, auxiliary verbs.

The purpose of this paper is to show the colorful sides of English language. Every time we learn the
grammar, tense forms, sentence structure and etc. Sometimes it can be boring during the learning process.
The exactness and expressiveness of the speech is dependent on using naturally words and expressions.
We build our speech on the basis definite grammatical rules. Like words, stable compounds, idioms also
play a role in the enrichment of language. The theme which I will talk in my research article is about Idioms
of English language, especially about the Color idioms. These idioms make the language more meaningful
and useful. In our daily life while conversation we can not use the formal language. Mostly we use informal
language and the different types of idioms make our speech impressive. By this way we can express our
feelings much more clearly. Also we must know the exact meaning of idioms. When we use the idiom
to drink till all's blue about a person who never tasted the alcohol of course you will be in a comic
situation. From the name of Colour Idioms we can find some amusing sides but when we enter to the deeps
of a topic we see that it is not possible as we imagine. It also have a great relation with grammar. Foreign
students or a person who is English is not their native language can learn this relation from books linguists
wrote about it.
Key words: English language, Colour idioms, formal and informal language.

Idiom is a Greek word-means special feature, special phrasing. It is an expression,
word, or phrase that has a figurative meaning that is comprehended in regard to a
common use of that expression that is separate from the literal meaning or definition
of the words of which it is made .There are estimated to be at least 25,000 idiomatic
expressions in the English language. In linguistics, idioms are usually presumed to be
figures of speech contradicting the principle of compositionality; yet the matter
remains debated. In phraseology, they are defined in a similar way as a sub-type of
phrase whose meaning is not the regular sum of the meanings of its components. English
idioms differ from others for their difference and richness. The translation of these
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
idioms to other languages is important and difficult issue in linguistics. The main
reason of wrong translation of idioms is the choosing it wrongly from the context,
other reason is the wrong understanding of translator. John Saied defines an "idiom"
as words collocated that became affixed to each other until metamorphosing into a
fossilised term .This collocationwords commonly used in a groupredefines each
component word in the word-group and becomes an idiomatic expression. Moreover,
an idiom is an expression, word, or phrase whose sense means something different
from what the words literally imply. The idiom "beating around the bush" means to
hint or discuss obliquely; nobody is literally beating any person or thing, and the bush
is a metaphor. When a speaker uses an idiom, the listener might mistake its actual
meaning, if he or she has not heard this figure of speech before. Idioms usually do not
translate well; in some cases, when an idiom is translated into another language, either
its meaning is changed or it is meaningless. As defined by The New International
Websters College Dictionary, an idiom is an expression not readily analyzable from
its grammatical construction or from the meaning of its component parts. It is the part
of the distinctive form or construction of a particular language that has a specific form
or style present only in that language. Random House Websters College Dictionary
seems to agree with this definition, even expanding it further, stating that an idiom is
an expression whose meaning is not predictable from the usual grammatical rules of a
language or from the usual meanings of its constituent elements. There are idioms
which mention different colours and people will recognize them as translations of their
own language, but often enough other words are used in the different languages. Some
of the common ones use the colours blue, green and red and are groups of words that
combine a preposition with the colour such as "out of the blue" or a verb and a prepo-
sition such as "He saw red." Since the idiom is supposed to give you a meaning which
is far from the meaning of the key word or object that creates it, new learners have
difficulties being able to image that colours have anything to do with something that
is not a refection of a light wave frequency. When the student sees that he "sees red"
in his language that is often a good beginning point for the person to see that there
may be other similar idioms. In the meantime he will likely absorb other idioms and
their the end of my speech I want to say that there are other idioms he
may know from popular English songs which uses "feel blue," for example. if the learner
has a musical ear he might take advantage of his ability to perceive other idioms in
the future. he can also learn that colours have been associated to certain emotions, as
blue is associated with sadness and red with anger. green with envy and white with
fear as in "white as a ghost." Others like yellow may be just stated in a simple sentence
with the present of be, as in "you're yellow," mean you are a coward. Here I want to
show some colour idioms and their translations.

The conversion is the process of the definite word
transition from some parts of speech to other
ones without any word-building means. This process occurs in 2 stages: 1) at the first stage, a word loses
original grammatical categories. This is a grammatical conversion and this transition comes true in 2 ways:
syntactic and morphological-syntactic; 2) at the second stage, a word absolutely turning into other gram-
matical category accepts it
all lexical-semantic meaning, morphological-syntactic markers and as a new
independent unit forms a part of vocabulary. This stage is called as semantic conversion. There are two
types of the conversion in the linguistics: a) Semantic-syntactic and b) semantic.
In this paper the syntactic and morphological-syntactic conversions in Azerbaijani poetry are considered.
It should be noted that the morphological-syntactic conversion in comparison with syntactic conversion
is more extend and the conversion
degree is higher.
Key words: conversion, syntactic, syntactic, Azerbaijani poetry.

All languages have words. Vocabulary learning and teaching is urgent matter in the learning new
word or in the second language acquisition. The coining of new words never stops. Even there are some
words that are not active, we never use them in our communication process. A word is more complex
phenomenon and it has different functions- grammatical functions. One word may have a variety of
overlapping meanings. Also the word can have the same or similar meaning but be used in different situation.
Therefore language teachers looks for different techniques such as visual, aural and verbal techniques. In
order to improve vocabulary miming, jesting and role-play are efficient activities.They are related to body
language and facial expressions. Learning vocabulary through body language and facial expression helps
to learners easy remembering this word when they need. Nonverbal activities can develop learners com-
prehension in language because of the fact that the use of language and physical action.
Key words: teaching vocabulary, techniques, body language, facial expression.

Language learning is a difficult task which requires a long period of time and effort
to understand and produce. With the advent of communicative language techniques,
learners communicating in the target language became as the focal point in language
classrooms. However, it should not be neglected that the learner has to have sufficient
vocabulary knowledge as well as structural and cultural knowledge in order to comprehend
the message and in order to express himself. Therefore, vocabulary teaching has a sig-
nificant value in language teaching. Without grammar very little can be conveyed, but
without vocabulary nothing can be conveyed. Nevertheless, memorizing long lists of
words is not the best way to develop and to enlarge vocabulary knowledge because of
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
the fact that it is not a natural way of learning and students are not able to internalize
the subject matter.
Consequently, communicative techniques such as games and drama activities that
give students an opportunity of using the words in meaningful learning conditions can
be helpful. Vocabulary cannot be taught. It can be presented, explained, included in all
kind of activities, but it must be learned by the individual. The vocabulary we understand
and the vocabulary we can use varies in nature and in quantity from one person to
another even in our native language. Consequently, teachers can help their students by
giving them ideas on how to learn vocabulary and some guidance on what to learn. It
should also be stressed that passive vocabulary knowledge of learners as well as active
vocabulary knowledge should be taken into consideration. Not all of the words a learner
hears during an instructional period need become a part of active vocabulary. Some
words in the target language will possibly remain passive; that is, we will be able to
understand them when we hear or read but will not use them in speaking or writing.
Vocabulary, as a subsystem of language, followed grammar during the days when the
structural linguists and video-lingualism were at their most popular days. In video-lingual
method depended on the idea that learners should concentrate on mastering the basic
sentence patterns of the language and when they mastered all these patterns, they could
use new vocabulary.

Vocabulary teaching is one of the most important key concepts in English language
teaching classes. Nevertheless, in previous years, language teaching programs were
prepared to teach basically the grammar. It was believed that after the students had
mastered the grammar, they should be taught most words. Therefore, language teachers
gave little attention to techniques for helping students learn vocabulary. And the language
study was done as a word memorization with long lists of words. Lots of strategies are
used to teach vocabulary today. A teacher may use them in an integrated way according
to his students` needs, abilities and levels.
The model which has been used in teaching process is based on the principles of
John Dewey`s Learning by doing
. The aim of this study is to increase the vocabulary
success level of the students. The objectives of teaching process and activities can be
summarized as follows:
1. Increasing vocabulary comprehension and vocabulary retention of the students
through the use of body language and facial expressions.
2. Activating students abilities in the classroom through physical activities such as
miming and role-play and increasing their motivation and acquisition level
through learning by doing principle.
3. Encouraging students to take part actively in their own learning process.
4. Encouraging students to use and to practice the words which they have been
Miming and the play have provided more permanent learning because of the fact
they have been able to do and to see while learning.

We have different terms to define colours; e.g: hue. Hue is somewhat synonymous to what we usually
refer to as "colors". Red, green, blue, yellow, and orange are a few examples of different hues.
So we differentiate them within Berlin and Kays eleven basic color categories white, black, red,
yellow, green, blue, brown, grey, purple, pink, orange. If a language has only two colors and all languages
have at least two colors they are always white and black; if a language has three colours, the one added
is red; if a fourth is added, it will be either green or yellow; when a fifth is added, it will then include both
green and yellow; the sixth added is blue; the seventh added is brown; and if an eighth or more terms are
added, it or they will be purple, pink, orange, or gray (Brown 1991: 13-14). The basic colors are black and
white, plus the primary colours, red, blue, yellow and green. But the value is a measurement of the brightness
of a colour. The brighter a color is, the higher is its value. For example, a vivid yellow is brighter than
dark blue, therefore its value is higher than that of the blue.
These are terms to describe how a color varies from its original hue. If white is added, the lighter
version of the color is called a tint of the color. On the other hand, if black is added the, darker version of
the color is called a shade of the color.
Key terms: basic colour terms, hue, value, tint and shade
Today every natural language that has words for colors is considered to have from
two to twelve basic color terms. All other colors are considered by most speakers of
that language to be variants of these basic color terms. Italian and Russian have twelve,
distinguishing blue and azure(goy). That doesn't mean English speakers cannot describe
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
the difference of the two colors, of course; however, in English, azure is not a basic
color term because one can say bright sky blue instead, while pink is basic because
speakers do not say light red.
Color words in a language can also be divided into abstract color words and des-
criptive color words. Abstract color words are words that only refer to a color. In
English white, black, red, yellow, green, blue, brown, and gray are abstract color words.
These words also happen to be 'basic color terms' in English as described above, but
colors like maroon(tund qirmiz) and magenta(moruq rengi0 are also abstract though
they may not be considered 'basic color terms', either because they are considered by
native speakers to be too rare, too specific. Descriptive color words are words that are
secondarily used to describe a color but primarily used to refer to an object or pheno-
menon. "Salmon", "rose", "saffron", and "lilac" are descriptive color words in English.
Colors in some languages may be denoted by descriptive color words even though other
languages may use an abstract color word for the same color. The word "orange" is
difficult to categorize as abstract or descriptive because both its uses, as a color word
and as a word for an object, are very common and it is difficult to distinguish which
of the two is primary.
The study shows that many color terms due to economical and cultural changes
were borrowed from French and Latin. Much of the color vocabulary of a particular
language is to a considerable degree the product of culture (McNeill 1972: 24, Lyons
1999:55). Different cultures have different terms for colors. Cultural color associations
can differ widely. Western brides consider a white dress to be traditional, and in Anglo-
American culture, wearing "something blue" is equally traditional. In some Asia/Pacific
countries, however, it is customary for brides to wear red. We wear black to funerals;
in India it is common to wear white.. Christians think of heaven as white or blue in
the Koran, the term for "greenness" is found as inhabitants of paradise. For the Chinese,
the color red is strongly associated with good luck, an association most Westerners
don't have. Not only does the mother tongue determine how we see, observe, notice,
and classify colors, but also the state of technology, industryColors are used in very
different ways in different color idioms across languages. Let's just take green as an
example. In English alone, "he is green" can mean, depending on the context: 1. He is
inexperienced 2. He is envious 3. He is environmentally aware.
A comprehensive list of such color idioms used in English and many other languages
has been compiled..E,g:
in the black - successful or profitable
once in a blue moon - to occur extremely rarely or only once in a life-time.
The world we live in is a world of color. Our eyes can perceive everything. At last I
can say that colour terms are in everywhere.

As in some ancient and modern languages compounds play the very important role in English language
system. In the investigation we have found new definitions that have been given to compounds, their models
arising on the basis of ancient, middle and new time and the most productive compound words have been
grouped for their different peculiarities.
Investigated literature linguistics shows that, the issue of existing compound word in languages and
its composition part was one of the problems of linguistics involving the attention of the linguists even
before century. Here we have also showed the place of stress in compound words belonging to modern
time and their way of using. The unfinished full formation theory that was based on the origin of the
compound words has been involved to the investigation in Modern Times.
Key words: Old English, Middle English, Modern English, compounds.

When we say the origin of compound words it is usually intended the expanding
and enriching of language vocabulary system. Of course, the creation of the new words
is the main function of compound words.
Though the formation of compounds in the language system is connected with
following stage of the mentality, there is no any information about exact history of
compounds in literature linguistics. But it doesnt mean that the linguists didnt pay
attention to the issue of the formation of compound words, on the contrary to it, this
subject has been analyzed by linguists in different times. The subject of the formation
of compounds has been investigated not only by English linguists but also German,
Russian and other linguists.
In English linguistics L.V. Arnold, O. Jespersen, H. Marchland, H. Sweet, B. Ilyish,
V. Vinogradov and others made different investigations on the origin of compounds
and their way of using. Let us look through the thoughts of some linguists.
A prominent English linguist H. Sweet in his book A new English Grammar,
Logical and Historical he mentioned detailed information about compounds. He wrote
that Compounds or complex words consist of joining of the two words and for their
form and logic they are equal to simple words [1.24]
H. Sweet also mentioned that If the complex words dont have special meaning,
it is impossible to distinguish them from word-combination. In complex words structural
parts are more closely connected to each other than in word-combinations. [1.26]
V.Vinogradov mentioned 2 methods of forming compound words: I - turning the
word to the word-combination and II compound words forming on the word-building
models affermed in the language system. Vinogradov calls the first method as sin-
tactical method and the second one as Syntactic morphological method.[2.13]
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
In German linguistics different theories on compounds were mentioned by Y. Grimm
and he devided compond word into 2 parts as common and proper compounds. He
writes that, there is no relation between the components of compound words and thats
why compouunds are not same with word-combinations.
In his book A course in modern English Lexicology R.S.Ginsburg the following
classifications of compounds and changing on their formation:
First, from Phonetic side he mentions that, the place of stress in compound words
is changable. Two words have their own stress, but when they combine the place of
stress changes.
Second, from Structural side Ginsburg shows that, there is special row and suc-
cession in complex words. Thus from the combination of two words there form copmlex
words belonging to different parts of speech.
Finally, from Graphic side he shows the correct way of writing of complex words.
Complex words can be written with a hyphen and joint.[3.141-142]
A Russian linguist A.I.Smirnitski analyzed the subject of compounds under the
fullformation theory. But his exploration remained incompleted. The full formation
theory has internal and external elements such as phonetic, morphological and
orphographic elements.
According to our researches, we have found that the history of English is divided
into 3 periods: The first is Old English (it encompasses V-XI centuries). It also calls
Anglo Saxon Period. The second is Middle English (it encompasses XI-XV centuries)
and finally, Mordern English (it suurounds from XV time up to now). Let us analyze
the formation of compounds according to above mentioned periods.
Compounds belonging to Old English include itself compund nouns, compound
adjectives and compound verbs. Compound nouns were formed from the following
1. Noun stem+noun stem: raindrop, heartache, rainbow, zod-sunu, winte-tid
2. Adjective +noun stem: holiday, sweetmeat, mid-night OE, neah-br
3. Verb stem+noun stem: bc-hs, writ-bred
Formation of compound adjectives :
1. substantives+adjective: wn-sd OE/ satied with wine ME
2. adjectives+substansives: zld-mod OE/ glad-minde ME
3. adjective+adjective: wid-cp OE/ widely-knownME
Formationof compoud verbs:
1. Noun stem+verb stem: dl-niman OE/ take part ME
2. Adjective stem+verb stem: fiu-fyllan
There is also auxilary compounds in English word stock: OE rdes-man councillor,
MidE man of advice ,man ModE
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
I.A.Arnold showed 2 kinds of formation of compounds: Endocentric (looking-glass,
sunbeam) and excocentric (pickpocket, dare-devil) [5.108]
As we mentioned above, the Modern Period of English begins from XVth century.
Compounds in Modern English formed in the folling ways:
Substantive compounds:
1. Final determinative compounds: air-pilot, gas-light, air-force
2. Initial determinative compounds: tiptoe
3. Copulative Compounds: Schlesrving-Holstein
4. Appositional Compounds: maid-servant, servant-girl
5. Bahuvrihi Compounds: red-coat
String compounds: Here the first element is a complex word: moonlight nights,
biy-girl attitude. The compounds used with andare also included here: debtor and
creditor fashion, a cat and a dog life etc.
And the final is Clipped Compounds. In compoarison with String Compounds
here the first element is independent: foot-and-mouth= foot and moth disease, Steinway
=Stain Way Piano etc.
In Modern English some compounds were formed with the help of inner syntax.
Here the stucture of the words reminds the structure of sentences and phrases. Such as:
well-to-do, well-meaning, out-of-way.
The Modern Linguist Rochelle Lieber divided compounds into 2 part for their
productivity: Root compounds (the second element is not a verb (textile mill, towel
rack, prince consort)) and synthetic compounds (the second element is a verb (truck
driver, meat eating, waste diposal etc. [4.15]
According to our survey, some compounds in Modern English are fully idiomatic:
blackmail-getting money or some other profit from other person by threats, bluestocking-
a woman affecting literary tastes and learning etc. Some simple words existing in
Modern English are formed from the compounds belonging to OE and they are called
Hidden Compouds: OE windaga = wind + aga / window ModE
Fianally, as a result of our research, we have come to conclusion that, though it is
possible to define some general criterias of compounds, there is no given full definition
of compounds. According to our research, it is easy to find examples compunds in Old
and Modern English in comparison with Middle English. Besides it, we have come to
a conclusion that, many copmound words formed in Old English were also used in
Modern English.

In my research, there are scores of definitions that researchers and scholars use to define non-verbal
communication. Non-verbal communication consists of all the messages other than words that are used in
communication. In oral communication, these symbolic messages are transferred by means of intonation,
tone of voice, vocally produced noises, body bearing, body gestures, facial expressions or pauses. When
individuals speak, they normally do not imprison themselves to the mere discharge of words. A great deal
of meaning is conveying by non-verbal means which always accompany oral discourse intended or not.
In other words, a spoken message is always sent on two levels at the same time, verbal and non-verbal.
Key words: Verbal, Non-verbal communication, eye movement, neurophysiologic aspects.

In this research paper, I introduce means of non-verbal communication. It is quite
usual to forget about many aspects of non-verbal communication when hearing this
notion. In fact, what come to mind immediately are body gestures or facial expressions.
However, there are many more aspects. People assume that non-verbal actions do not
lie and therefore they tend to believe the non-verbal message when a verbal message
contradicts it. This was proven in tests in which subjects were asked to react to sentences
that appeared friendly and inviting when reading them but were spoken angrily. In short,
people try to make sense of the non-verbal behavior of others by attaching meaning to
what they observe them doing. Consequently, these symbolic messages help the hearer
to interpret the speakers intention and this indicates the importance of non-verbal
communication in the field of interpretation.
When we dont know someone, we use their body language to get first impressions
of them. In most cases, the impressions we make are wrong, as a positive form of body
language may mean something negative about them. For example, someone who moves
around a lot may be seen as energetic and efficient. In some cases, this may be correct,
but it can mean that they are uncomfortable in the situation and also nervous.
Intonation is the way that the senders pitch of voice rises and falls when speaking.
For example, it shows the interpreter whether the speaker expresses his or her message
in the form of a question or statement. In the first case, the voice rises at the end of the
phrase or the sentence and in the second case, it falls. At the same time, intonation in-
dicates the end of an entity of information, which-in written communication -is shown

by means of a comma, semicolon, point, exclamation mark or question mark. Another
function of intonation is to lay emphasis on a particular word or idea, a detail that the
interpreter must not fail to be aware of.
Tone of voice
The tone of voice is a means by which the speaker implies his or her attitude to
the message. It is also a means by which he seeks a reaction from the hearer. In a po-
litical debate, for instance, the tone of voice is likely to be rousing, whereas on television
the daily news is communicated in a more factual tone. Other examples of tone of voice
are: aggressive, critical, nervous, disappointed, monotonous, friendly, enthusiastic,
vivid, persuasive, etc.
Vocally produced noises
Spoken discourse can be accompanied by vocally produced noises that are not
regarded as part of language, though they help in communication for the expression
of attitude or feeling. Such non-lexical expressions differ in important respects from
language: They are much more similar in form and meaning, i.e. Universal, as a whole
in contrast to the great diversity of language.
Vocally produced noises include laughter, shouts, screams of joy, fear, pain, as
well as conventional expressions of disgust, triumph, etc., traditionally spelled ugh!,
ha ha!
Body posture
Body posture is the bearing or the position of the speakers body. It is a more or
less stable state and thus not to be confused with body gestures which are movements.
Body posture can be characteristic and assumed for a special purpose or it can corres-
pond to the normal expectations in the context of a particular situation. Obviously one
can be lying down, seating, or standing. Normally, these are not the elements of posture
that convey messages.
Facial expressions and eye movement
Facial expressions are dynamic features which communicate the speakers attitude,
emotions, intentions, and so on. The face is the primary source of emotions. During oral
communication, facial expressions change continually and are constantly monitored
and interpreted by the receiver. Examples are: a smile, frown, raised eyebrow, yawn or
A pause can have two different functions:
1. It can be a brief suspension of the voice to indicate the limits and relations of sen-
tences and their parts. A pause then assumes a similar function in oral discourse to
2. It can consist of a temporary vocal inaction revealing the speakers uncertainty,
hesitation, tension or uneasiness. In this context, a pause can also be judgmental

by indicating favor or disfavor, agreement or disagreement. Consequently, the non-
verbal cue of a pause can give rise to problems when interpreting it because its
meaning can vary considerably. It can have a positive or negative influence on the
process of communication.(
According to the Alison Doyles ideas its better to do these points during the
1. Make eye contact with the interviewer for a few seconds at a time.
2. Smile and nod (at appropriate times) when the interviewer is talking, but, don't
overdo it.
3. Don't laugh unless the interviewer does first.
4. Be polite and keep an even tone to your speech. Don't be too loud or too quiet..
Don't slouch.
5. Do relax and lean forward a little towards the interviewer so you appear interested
and engaged.
6. Don't lean back. You will look too casual and relaxed.
7. Keep your feet on the floor and your back against the lower back of the chair.
8. Pay attention, be attentive and interested.
9. Listen.
10. Don't interrupt.
11. Stay calm. Even if you had a bad experience at a previous position or were fired,
keep your emotions to yourself and do not show anger or frown.
12. Not sure what to do with your hands? Hold a pen and your notepad or rest an arm
on the chair or on your lap, so you look comfortable. Don't let your arms fly around
the room when you're making a point. (
Non-verbal communication does not only play a role in face-to-face situations. It
is also important in mediated communication, for example, as this is the case for tele-
phone interpreting, where the interpreter does not see the speaker.
Non-verbal communication is emotionally expressive as people from all cultures
smile, cry, caress, or then repress their emotions through body or facial action. Many
emotional expressions seem to be displayed universally. However, non-verbal behavior
varies from culture to culture, which means it is specific to each culture and may be
interpreted differently.
Non-verbal communication is not only crucial in a plain daily communication si-
tuation but also for the interpreter. Non-verbal communication can take various forms,
each of which illustrates or replaces a certain part of the verbal communication. It includes
many more elements than one might think at first. Whether non-verbal communication
supports the interpreters in their task or presents a difficulty, it will always play an
important role.

M. Fuzuli one of the nice presented poets - polyglots of the Azerbaijan people which successfully
wrote and created in three languages of the east-on Azerbaijan, persian and on arabian languages.
M. Fuzuli's creativity had deep influence on development medieval a Turkic literary language in
general. M. Fuzuli's creativity has ennobled level of the Azerbaijan literary language on high boundaries.
M. Fuzuli has created literary school which has exemplified and others turkic peoples.
Key words: Days, time, harm, joyful, separation, equal, to rebuke, to upbraid.

Development of Azerbaijan literary language and he has played the strong part in
the history of development of the mother tongued poem. It is necessary to say that he
occurs from necessity of to reimburse definite demand of each word in the dictionary
structure of the language and it is used from him.
Research of a literary language of valuable monuments of verbal art of Azerbaijan
XVI centuries allows a rich material to find out history, specificity of formation of
dictionary fund (3,465), lexical structure of literary Azerbaijan language, to track process
of assimilation of loans.
During glance at the vocabulary of modern literary language we see loanwords
adjoining with own national words. So events in the lexicography informing that people
gets the economic and cultural relations between other nations.
The turkic Divan of Fuzuli most valuable treasury literary-art language of XVI
The analysis of language of products of M. Fuzuli, in particular their dictionary
structure and character of use of loans in a context of dictionary language gives an
interesting material for reflexions. Specificity of use by the poet of loans, originality
of its approach to this problem is found out. Some of words used in Divan by Fuzuli
are not existing in modern literary and peoples languages. So that, some of these words
are met in written monuments before and after XVI century.
The poet it is masterful used polysemantism, having given to a verse additional
expressiveness and beauty. For the products the poet always preferred words, earn the
citizenship right in native Azerbaijan language (5,12).
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2

In M. Fuzuli's language of means poetic graphics, being used in the primary value,
or being enriched by additional value, serve deepening of understanding of all verse in
its part. For example: Ruzigarm xo keirdi ka Kim dvran dnb, Oldu hvalm xrab,
ol ruzigarm qalmad (Days I perfectly spent, it is a pity, time has changed, the Harm
became me, alas, days of that of a trace does not remain.)
Words ruzigar are meant by""life", but speaking Ruzigarm xo keirdi the
enamoured means days of meetings, appointments to a beloved. The bitterness of
separation expressed here a combination ol ruzigarm qalmad , that is, a trace of
those days does not remain, deepens the information that former joyful days are not
present more (1,142).
In "Divan" of Fuzuli the word "ten" in modern literary Azerbaijan language is used
already in two values: "beraber" - "equal" and "danlamaq", "mezemmet etmek" - "re-
bukes", to "reproach" (2,400). For example: Let urub qalibi-fersudemi geh hebs qlr,
Geh serasimev ryan buraxr sehraye (I.267). (That I smother tired to me breaking
off, it captivates, poor, naked, in desert it expels). A word "ryan" in "Divan" XVI
centuries it is used by the poet in value "naked", "nude". In a modern literary language
it is used not independently, and in a combination to an auxiliary word "lt" also with
value "naked" in shape "lt-ryan".
Researches show, that M.Fuzuli's literary influence took place also on creativity
of national writers which were engaged in record of folklore genres of time. M.Fuzuli's
huge influence and on ghuzname which has been written down in the end of XVI
- the beginning of XVII centuries is observed in this connection by us is revealed some
parallels about which speech will go.
Parallel nouns: dush (dream), iye//issi (owner), tanuq (witness), n (voice).
Parallel verbs: nmk//nlmk (to recover, become better), saqnmaq (to be protec-
ted, preserve itself), savmaq (to be given), sgritmk (to dance, force to dance).
Lexical parallels in "Divan" and in ghuzname show M. Fuzuli, that these words
were active lexical units in public Azerbaijan language of XVI century. As show re-
searches, great M.Fuzuli as national sings, in the poetic creativity attached huge signi-
ficance to the words full from live national language. Communication of these parallels
that guzname, a folklore genre, also contained numerous national elements. For
this reason the use of lexical parallels in "Divan" of M.Fuzuli and in ghuzname is
a natural case.

None of language is developed under the glass cover. Environment always influences the language
and traces it in every step. (..,
, . 1968., .11) Ch.X.Bakayev showed that process of the development of human society, nations
and their languages always contact each others. It is impossible to describe a nation who quite isolates from
other nations. Loanwords are words adopted by the speakers of one language from a different language
(the source language). A loan word, borrowed word or borrowing is a word taken over from another
language and modified in phonemic shape, spelling, paradigm or meaning according to the standards of
the English language. The English language has vast debts. 70% of the entries are borrowed (I. V. Arnold,
lexicology of English). Languages of Turkic peoples left numerous traces in different languages, including
the English language. Turkic borrowings, which belong to the social and political vocabulary, are
generally used in special literature and in the historical and ethnographical works, which relate to the life
of Turkic and Muslim peoples. The ethnographical words are generally used in the scientific literature,
and in the historical and ethnographical texts.
Key words: borrowing, loan words, acquire, trace, penetrate.

The adoption of Indian words, among which there were some Turkic borrowings,
became one of the ways for the words of the Turkic origin to penetrate English. Addi-
tionally, several words of Turkic origin penetrated English through East European
languages like Russian and Polish. German, Latin, Spanish, Italian, French, Hungarian
and Serbo-Croatian were also intermediary languages for the Turkic words to penetrate
English, as well as containing numerous Turkic loanwords themselves (e.g. Serbo-
Croatian contains around 5,000 Turkic loanwords, primarily from Turkish).
In the nineteenth century, Turkic loanwords, generally of Turkish origin, began to
penetrate not only through the writings of the travelers, diplomats and merchants, and
through the ethnographical and historical works, but also through the press. In 1847,
there were two English-language newspapers in Istanbul The Levant Herald and The
Levant Times, seven newspapers in French, one in German and 37 in Turkish. Turkish
contributed the largest share of the Turkic loans, which penetrated into the English
directly. This can be explained by the fact that Turkey had the most intensive and wide
connections with England. Nevertheless, there are many Turkic loans in English, which
were borrowed by its contacts with other peoples Azerbaijanis, Tatars, Uzbeks,
Kazakhs and Kirghiz.
Most of the Turkic loans in English carry exotic or ethnographical connotations.
They do not have equivalents in English, do not have synonymic relations with pri-
mordial words, and generally are used to describe the fauna, flora, life customs, political
and social life, and an administrative-territorial structure of Turkic regions. But there
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
are many Turkic loans, which are still part of the frequently used vocabulary. Some
Turkic loans have acquired new meanings, unrelated to their etymology.
To conclude, the words of the Turkic origin began penetrating English as early as
the Middle Ages, the Turkic loanwords found their way into English through other
languages, most frequently through French. Since the 16c, beginning from the time of
the establishment of the direct contacts between England and Turkey, and Russia, in
English appeared new direct borrowings from Turkic languages. German, Polish,
Russian, Serbo-Croatian, French, Arabic, Armenian, Afrikaans, Hungarian, Yiddish,
Indian, Spanish, Italian, Latin, Malayan, to a different extent, took part in the process
of the transfer of the Turkic words into English. The main language from which the
borrowings were made, was Turkish. Lets look many examples, which words entered
English from Turkish.
Altilik-from Turkish altlk. A coin, originally of silver and equivalent to 6
piasters, formerly used in Turkey
Araba-from Russian arba, which is from Turkish araba. A carriage used in Tur-
key and neighboring countries.

Modal verb differs from auxiliary and modal (defective) verbs. An auxiliary verb has no independent
meaning of its own but helps to build up the analytical forms of the English verb. The verbs can, may, must,
ought, shall, will, need and dare are called modal verbs. Modal verben ist sollen, mssen, knnen, mgen,
durfen, mchten, wollen. In Azerbaijan language modal words differ from in English and German languages:
modal words announce with affirimation, modal words announce with supposition an doubt, modal words
announce with result and generalizing, modal words announce with source of the thought and so on...
Keywords: Modal verbs, used three languages, meaning.

There are so many ways of expanding the general vocabulary. Affixation, compounding and conversion
are the major sources of the great expansion of the vocabulary in the late modern period, but there are also a
number of minor ways in which words have been acquired. [ 2 ]
One of the minor sources of word-formation in the late modern period is to create common nouns
from the names of people or places. This way of word formation is termed as eponym. An eponym is the
name of a person or thing, whether real or fictitious, after which a particular place, tribe, era, discovery,
or other item is named or thought to be named. Most eponyms originate from a person's surname: ampere,
for instance, from the French physicist Andr Mari Amper. Many eponymous words come from literary,
biblical or mythological sources: scrooge (a miser) - from Dickens's "A Christmas Carol"; cereal- from
Roman goddess of grain and agriculture, Ceres; as old as Methuselah, from the age of the Old Testament
petriarch.[ 2 ]
Created about a century ago, the term eponym is a coinage from two Greek words, epi, "on" or "upon",
and onama, "a name". One who is referred to as eponymous is someone who gives his or her name to
something. Some eponymous words are still capitalized like a proper noun, so those not capitalized are
most clearly eponyms. The important, defining property is that the word does not refer exclusively to the
person or place named by the proper noun, as does Marxism or Christian, but is used to refer to a general
category, as do quisling, boycott and fuchsias. [ 1 ]
Key words: eponym, eponymous, name, proper noun, place.

There are thousands of eponyms in everyday use in English today. Studying of them
develops an interesting insight into the rich heritage of the worlds most popular language
and its development. The greater part of these eponyms comes from world history and
Eponyms are roughly divided into 5 groups :
1. Product eponyms: These eponyms include brand names which has fallen into
general use. The commonplace products and services of today become the household
word of tomorrow. Kleenex, for example, is a brand of facial tissues, yet the word is
used today to refer to facial tissues of any brand. Xerox is a brand of photocopy machine;
that word, too, has been since adopted to refer to any brand of photocopy machine and,
moreover, also employed as a verb to describe the act of photocopying. More surprising
examples include escalator, heroin, and zipper. In the United Kingdom (but not in the
United States), biro and hoover are eponymous terms for pens and vacuum cleaners,
respectively. In Azerbaijani language, for instance, pampers has become an eponym
for diaper.[ ]
2. Historical and Geographical Eponyms: Common nouns deriving from geog-
raphical names describing names where certain things were found, produced, sold, are
sometimes called geographical eponyms. For instance, angora - 1. fabric or wool from
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
the hair of the angora goat or rabbit; 2. long-haired variety of cat, goat, or rabbit. (An-
gora (= Ankara) in Turkey) [ 4 ]
Historical figures lend their names to ideas associated with them: The words boycott,
chauvinism, quisling, and sandwich all derive from personal names. For instance,
chauvinism -super patriotism of the fanatically mindless sort, lately expanded to include
blind loyalty to or a blinkered view of any group or issue. Named for Nicolas Chauvin, a
French soldier wounded seventeen times while serving under Napoleon. Retired with
honors, Chauvin did not stop singing Napoleon's praises and the glories of France, and
he was ridiculed for his unbridled boasting. [ 1 ]
Famous people have also been associated with items or components of clothing,
or material, for example, bloomer, cardigan, raglan, etc. Cardigan - James Thomas
Brudenell (1797-1863), who became the seventh Earl of Cardigan upon his father's
death, and for whom the cardigan sweater was named because he was frequently seen
wearing that collarless sweater with buttons down the front, was the sole heir to a for-
tune and a famous English name. [ 1 ]
Various groups of people are associated with proper names for locations. These
include bohemian, lesbian, and philistine. Lesbianism is the practice of homosexuality
by females. On the island of Lesbos in the Aegean Sea during the earlier half of the
sixth century lived the Greek poet Sappho. She became the leader of a group of women
whose behavior was characterized by strong homosexual feelings. Hence from the name
given this manifestation we have sapphism, an eponymous derivative from her name,
and lesbianism, an eponymous derivative from her birthplace. [ 1 ]
3. Literary Eponyms: Fictional characters often evoke such strong qualities that
their names are assigned to those qualities. People who exhibit qualities of literary
characters are associated to them by being called for instance, a Casanova, a Romeo,
or a Svengali,etc. Azerbaijani language is also rich in such kind of literary eponyms.
For example, Majnun from " Leyli and Majnun " is an eponym for someone who has
deep affection.Other examples include Koroglu, Haji Gara and so on.
Storytellers with a noticeable quality have given their names to literary criticism
for the purposes of analogy, as in Dickensian (suggesting melodramatic poverty,
eccentric characters, or joyfulness), Homeric (epic), and Proustian (effecting personal
4. Scientific Eponyms: In science and technology, discoveries and innovations
are often named after the discoverer or popularizers as in the cases of Rudolf Diesel,
Alessandro Volta, Alzheimers disease and James Watt. For example, Celsius is a
scale and unit of measurement for temperature. It is named after the Swedish astronomer
Anders Celsius (17011744), who developed a similar temperature scale two years
before his death. Eponyms role is great in fixing the names of discoverers and inventors
in history. []
5. Mythological Eponyms: One of the sources inspiring eponyms is mythological
characters. For instance, fauna - all animals taken together. This word has been taken
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
from the name of Faunus, the Roman god of pastures and forests. [http://www. alpha-]
It is always interesting to study the origin of words. By defining the origin of words
it is possible to get much information not only about the language but also about its

In the world everything changes with time. Human society changes, too. Language as a social phe-
nomenon - the most important means by which people communicate with each other - changes, too. But
language changes rather slowly. From year to year, even from generation to generation, we may hardly
notice any change in any language at all. All living languages change with time. It is fortunate that they do so
rather slowly compared to the human life span. Many language changes are revealed in written records.
All languages are continually changing their sounds, their syntax and their meaning. This gradual
alteration is mostly unnoticed by the speakers of a language. English has undergone great, fundamental
changes in its development. A speaker of Modern English would find Old English unintelligible, because
it is quite different from what he speaks. The works of Chaucer or Shakespeare shows how much English
has changed in short time. Old English did not look like Standard English of today.
Key words: Old English, Middle English, Modern English, period, change.

The division of English into Old English (119-1066), Middle English (1065-1500)
and Modern English (1500-present) is marked by the dates or events in the English
history which profoundly influenced the English language. This division is really some
what arbitrary. So, according to Victoria Fromkin, the history of English and the changes

Old English was the language spoken by Saxons, Angles, and Jutes after they settled
on the British Islands. They came to the islands and brought with them their dialects
of the Germanic language. Since then they considered themselves as Englishmen. These
tribes set up seven kingdoms called the Anglo-Saxon Heptarchy that included: Mercia,
Northumbria, Kent, Wessex, Sussex, Essex, and East Anglia. Four dialects were spoken
in these kingdoms: West Saxon, Kentish, Mercian and Northumbrian. So, the Old English
period began with several different dialects.
Old English is a West Germanic language and is closely related to Old Frisian.
According to Adrian Akmajian, Old English grammar was similar in some ways to
Classical Latin and much closer to modern German. It was fully inflected with two
grammatical numbers (singular and plural), five grammatical cases (nominative, dative,
genitive, accusative and instrumental) and three grammatical genders (masculine, fe-
minine and neuter). The most famous surviving work of the Old English period is the
epic poem Beowulf epic composed by an unknown poet.
The period of Middle English started with the Norman Conquest of England by
Northmen under the leadership of William the Conqueror. William invaded England,
and killed King Harold I at the battle of Hastings in 1066. The French occupation of
England continued for over four centuries, and was followed by the Modern English
Period. Middle English was influenced by both Anglo-Norman and, later, Anglo-French.
During this period the changes may be noted in every aspect of the language; its sounds,
words and the nature of its word stock. Many Old English words were replaced by
French ones. The most famous writer of the Middle English period was Geoffrey
Chaucer, and his best-known work is The Canterbury Tales.
The Modern English period probably started in 1500. This period is related to that of
Middle English by the Renaissance, which began in Italy in the fourteenth century but
reached England in the late fifteenth century. During this period there were the greater
and more important phonological, lexical, semantic and syntactic changes in the language.
According to Victoria Fromkin, The Great Vowel Shift had great influence on the
phonological system of English. The Great Vowel Shift took place mainly during the
15th century and was completed in the early period of Modern English. By the time
of William Shakespeare, the language had become clearly recognizable as Modern
English. Late Modern English has many more words, arising from two principal factors:

firstly, the Industrial Revolution and technology created a need for new words; secondly,
the British Empire at its height covered one quarter of the Earth's surface, and the English
language adopted foreign words from many countries. Since the seventeenth century
with the policy of expansionism and colonialism carried out by the British colonialists.
English was widely spread to many parts of the world, such as America, Canada,
Australia, New Zealand and some other countries. English in the post-Renaissance
period has become a world language.

It is clear that, there are a lot of significant differences between all languages. They can be differing
typologically or genesically.For example: from morphological structure the Azerbaijan language included to
agglutinative groups but English included to analytical groups.
So when Azerbaijan students know degrees of comparison they can easily acquire English language.
The main purpose in my researching paper is to present you that how degrees of adjective is made,
what is the distinctive and similaritive qualities between them, also to show you that how Azerbaijani
students acquire or learn degrees of adjective in English language.
Key words: degrees of adjective, similaritive and distinctive qualities.

The modern world is overwhelmed with information. Nowadays we are not concerned with the process
of getting the information as much as we are concerned with filtering the available information. The modern
world is indeed intertwined and interconnected. It is difficult to overestimate the role of communication
in our contemporary life. We express ourselves as individuals through communication. Being limited in
the ability to communicate can be compared to imprisonment. During the process of teaching, the aim of
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2

the educator should not be teaching a system of a language, but rather a speech activity in its productive
form, not by itself, but as a means of interpersonal and intercultural communication.The process of teaching
languages should be built on the process of forming communicative competence in people.
Key words: communication, speech, teaching, language.

It is difficult to overestimate the role of communication in our contemporary life.
We express ourselves as individuals through communication. Being limited in ability
to communicate can be compared to imprisonment.
Modern science defines communication as a process of intellectual and emotional
exchange, in which the information is collected, redistributed, and interpersonal contact
is established.
It should be noted that, unfortunately, in the process of language teaching,
communication is not specifically taught. This negligence even applies to the process
of learning the mother tongue. As a result, many people remain dissatisfied with the
results of conversationafter the act of communication. Some walk away feeling that
they said a wrong thing, others are not happy with the tone of voice they used, some
feel that they did not say enough, and some regret that they did not have enough time
to fully unveil their thoughts through speech; the list can go on and on. In order to teach
a person to speaking a given language, the instructor must train the person the skills
of communication.
Communication has various forms:
- Performance of one person to a large audience - presentation at a meeting,
reading, lectures, etc., similar to a monologue;
- Exchange of information between two people, this communication takes place in
the form of a dialogue;
- Multilateral exchange of views in a group, it is called polylogue;
It is common to divide communication into the following sub-groups based on the
nature of speech:
1. companionship - the participants are in equal positions. Such communication can
flow evenly, efficiently, and rationally;
2. pre-conditioned communication - each party complies with certain roles in accord
to their social statute;
3. authoritarian communication- one party dictates the terms, occupying a dominant
4. conflicting communication - parties cannot come together in a single opinion. This
form of communication is often filled with manipulations; each side defends its own
position and interests. With such communication failures occur frequently, jumping
from one problem to another, sometimes without any reason, simply for the sake
of protecting the taken side on the issue.
While exploring the main problems with communication, it is appropriate to dwell
on the nature of a modern man. A modern man, by virtue of continuous growth and
availability of information is no longer able to simply listen and accept what he/she is
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
told by a companion. In general, there are few people who have the ability to actually
listen. According to various sources, only 4-10% of us have the talent of a good listener.
With faster pace of life our attention span has shortened. To dedicate 7-9 minutes to a
short video, presentation, or article on the internet is now considered an enormous
amount of time, so generously dedicated.
During the process of teaching communication, teachers should be considered is
the inability of people to listen well and absorb information. Lectures and lessons must
be exciting and intriguing to the students; they must be interactive. Statistics show that
traditional views on the process of communication are distant from reality. For example,
according to some studies, only 7% of the information is transmitted by means of words
during the interpersonal communication.
38% of the content of the message is trans-
mitted by various means of intonation. The remaining 55% of the speech is transferred
through facial expressions, gestures, and various body movements. Clearly, these indi-
cators of the communication process must be taken into account in process of teachinga
The success of learning the skills of communication is dependent on the teachers
pedagogical skills. The communication process must be emotionally comfortable, and
personally-enriching. Only through such a teaching approach can the students gain
confidence in their communicative competence. It is no accident that modern methodo-
logical literature stresses creativity, which is manifested through cooperation of teachers
and students, and not the old authoritarian approaches that fail to engage the students
and therefore fail to educate them.
In general, to ensure successful communication, it is necessary to pay attention to
the following provisions:
- Any communication should start with a smile, and in a good mood;
- Everyone needs to learn to listen to others. No wonder they say that those who
know how to listen have more friends;
- Students should not be ashamed of their mistakes and mistakes of their peers
- It is important to experiment with speech, using nice words, good manners of
communication observed in other people.
Most of us simply want to be heard and understood being understood is happiness.
In order to make people happy you must teach them to communicate. The process of
teaching languages should be built on the process of forming communicative competence
in people. This requirement applies equally to the process of learning the mother tongue
and foreign languages.
Language is the primary means of communication between people. It is hard to
imagine a society without a language, however, the problems of formation and develop-
ment of communication skills, in the process of learning a language, is given a special
attention only recently.
Modern linguistics define language as an opportunity, speech as a product, and
communication as an activity. Therefore, when teaching a language, including mother
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2

tongue,it is important to teach the skills of using all opportunities that the language can
offer; while the process of teaching should be built on the process of teaching the skill
of communication.
The objectives of language teaching have evolved in the recent decades and can
be presented in the chronological order:
- Learning the language, i.e. grammatical structure of a given language;
- Training of speech - ability to speak in different situations with a variety of topics;
- Learning to communicate the ability to verbally react to the surrounding reality
and express ones opinion on a given subject.

Nowadays, the system of language teaching has experienced positive changes due
to the widespread introduction of new pedagogical and information technologies.
The ongoing changes in the education system must concentrate on the ultimate goal
of language teaching. Therefore, the aim of language teaching should not be a system
of a language, but rather a speech activity in its productive form, not by itself, but as a
means of interpersonal and intercultural communication.
A person studying any language, eventually turns into a linguistic individual. His
main indicators may take the form of communicative skills. Given that these qualities
can vary in different people, we can present them as the following indicators.
1. Linguistic skills related to compliance with the rules of grammar, orthopedic and
stylistic norms of the language.
2. Social indicators of native speakers are shown in communication with different
interlocutors. In this case, it is necessary to choose the right words, tone, intonation
and other language features; depending on where and with whom communication
is taking place.
3. The physical situation in which communication is taking place dictates its own terms:
limited time, the presence of various types of interference (noise, long distance
between the speakers, presence of outsiders), make their impact on the result of
communication and require the speakers to choose the most appropriate language,
and sometimes non-verbal communication.
4. National and cultural indicators of ability to communicate in the target language
is manifested in a variety of compliance requirements associated with the traditions
and customs of the carriers of the language. This indicator, when applied to the
native language, can be manifested in the form of high tone. With respect to the
second language, it may be satisfactory in exceptional cases. It should be noted
that lacking the possession of the national-cultural level of language often leads to
confusion when there is a dialogue between speakers of two different languages.
5. A person fluent in the language must know not only the lexical meaning of words,
but also plunge into the "world" of these words. This means that a good native
speaker needs to know a number of words meaning the same notion, and all of the
concepts expressed in one word.

April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
In conclusion, I would like to say that a person possessing the above indicators, in
the process of communication; can be considered a linguistically free person. Raising
such a person should be set as the core purpose of language teaching.

This paper considers the Azeri translation of English nominal clauses with subordinate wh interrogative
clauses in complex sentences. Moreover, in this research, infinitive wh clauses have been studied.
Nominal clauses (clauses approximating in function noun phrases) fall into six major categories: That
clause or subordinate declarative clauses, Subordinate interrogative clauses, Subordinate exclamative
clauses, Nominal relative clauses, To - infinitive clauses and Ing clauses. An infinitive wh clause can
be formed with all wh words. The infinitive clause has an obligational sense .In this paper, the data are
drawn from studies based on the English Azeri translated texts. Based on the results of the present study,
78% of these sentences in Azeri, translated as simple sentences involving verb combinations, 12% translated
as simple sentences without verb combinations, 6% translated as complex sentences and 4% translated as
compound sentences. Regarding the structures involving infinitive construction, the findings indicate that
68% translated as simple sentences consisting verb combinations, and 32% translated as complex sentences.
It can be said that, in Azeri, there is a tendency of using simple sentences instead of compound or complex
ones. The results of this research also show that there are some mistranslations regarding the nominal
clauses involving both wh interrogative and infinitive constructions, due to ignoring of the "obligational
sense of these clauses in Azeri translation, the percentage of these mistranslations is 86%. In this research,
the most frequent wh interrogative word used in original texts, is "what" in 32 sentences and the least one,
is "whom" in 7 sentences, in addition, the most frequent wh interrogative word used in subordinates in-

volving both wh words and infinitive construction in original texts is "how" with the percentage of 53%
and the least one is "where" with the percentage 11%.
Key words: Translation, Translator, Linguistics, Complex Sentences, Nominal Clauses.

Translation is an activity of increasingly vital importance in the educational, political,
economic and cultural fields of human endeavors. Translation is a complex process
beset by several difficulties and many problems, yet at the same time it has a wide scope
with almost unlimited applications and prospects. Newmark defines translation as the
attempt to produce approximate equivalence or respectable synonymy between two
chunks of different languages on various levels of which two main ones are thought
and linguistic form. Newmark adds that translation is partly an exercise in the art of
writing as well as a field of comparative applied linguistics (1988,p.26). Newmark
believes that grammatical meaning is more significant, less precise, more general and
sometimes more elusive than lexical meaning (ibid). Basically, it will have attained
this fact that syntactic differences existing among languages may cause problem in
translation. Here it seems necessary to mention some characteristics of the Azeri lan-
guage generally, which differ from English and should be considered in order to produce
an acceptable translation. The Azeri language which is also known as Azeri, Azeri
Turkish and Azerbaijani, is the Republic of Azerbaijan's official language, though some
dialects of the language are spoken in several parts of Iran. The Azeri language can be
heard in parts of eastern turkey, northern Iraq, and in southeastern area of the Republic
of Georgia. Worldwide, there are about 27 million native speakers of this language.
The Azeri language is derived from the Oghuz family of language and linguistically,
it is most closely related to Turkish, Persian and Arabic. As part of the Oghuz family
of languages, it was brought from central Asia by Seljuk Turks and in the Middle East
it was greatly influenced by the vocabulary and grammar of Persian and Arabic.
Eventually, it replaced Tat, old Azeri and Middle Persian in Iran and became the most
dominant language in a multi lingual area by the 1500s. Regarding the grammar of
Azeri, it can be said that it is an agglutinative language and frequently used affixes and
specifically suffixes - Most of them indicate the grammatical function of the word.
Word order in Azeri is generally subject object verb as in Korean and Latin but
unlike English. In more complex sentences, the basic rule is that the qualifier precedes
the qualified; this principle includes, as an important special case, the participial mo-
difiers. The definite precedes the indefinite. It is possible to alter the word order to
stress the importance of a certain word or phrase. The main rule is that the word before
the verb has the stress without exception. Moreover as Azeri is a prodrop language,
the subject may not be mentioned in the sentence. This research focuses on the analyzing
of English complex sentences with nominal subordinate clauses which involve both
wh interrogative clauses and infinitive construction and their translation in Azeri
language. The importance of this research is showing some methods for translating of
these sentences into Azeri language, due to existing syntactic peculiarities and differ-
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
rences between languages which may cause some problems in the process of translating.
The underlying assumption of this research is that the translator must have enough
knowledge and information about the structures of English and Azeri while translating
these sentences in order to translate effectively. Since Azeri language does not have
such complexity-packaged constructions, Azeri learners, and translators find it difficult
to cope with these structures which are widely used in English writing. To this end
English fictions are studied to identify those structures in English and their Azeri
equivalents. In this relation the following research questions have been formulated:
How are English nominal clauses involving subordinate wh interrogative clauses
translated into Azeri?How are English nominal clauses involving both subordinate wh
interrogative clause and infinitive construction translated into Azeri? Are these struc-
tures translated as complex sentences in Azeri language? What are the most frequent
wh interrogative words found in original texts?
Translation and Translator
Translation deals with language. As language is a means of communication, so
does the function of translation. Nida (1981, p.12) states that translation means com-
munication because it has three essential elements to form a process of communication.
The three essential elements are source, message and the receptor, and these elements
must be found in all communication activities. So, it can be said that translation is the
medium of the source language and target language. We transform the meaning in
source language in the form of target language by translation, so the renders in the
target language understand the meaning in the source language. Successful translating
involves one of the most complex intellectual challenges known to mankind. Moreover,
in our present world, the need for extensive, accurate and effective communication
between those using different languages, gives the translator a position of new and
strategic importance (Nida, 1964, p. 155). Therefore translating from one language into
another language is a complicated task. There are many factors that should be considered
in the process of translation in order to make translation result be appropriate to be
comprehended. Based on Catford's idea (1965) translation is the replacement of textual
material in one language (source language) by equivalent textual material in another
language (target language). Larson (1984) believes that translation consists of studying
the lexicon, grammatical structure which appropriate in the receptor language and its
cultural context,i.e."translating consists of reproducing in the receptor language. The
closest natural equivalent of the source language message, first interms of meaning and
secondly interms of style". Newmark says that translation is rendering the meaning of
a text into another language in the way that the author intended the text (1988, p.73).
In translation, the translator possesses a satisfactory knowledge of the source lan-
guage. He must understand not only obvious content of message but also, the subtleties
of the meaning, the significant emotive values of words, and stylistic features which
determine the flavor of the message. Even more important that knowledge of the resources
of the language is a control of the receptor language. (Nida, 1964, p.150).
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
Therefore, a translator must have reliable knowledge and experience in this field.
As a communicator, moreover, the knowledge and skills related to all communicators
have to possessed. He has to access the target language knowledge, text type knowledge,
source language knowledge, subject area (real world) knowledge and cultural knowledge
(Bell, 1991, p.36).
Generally, in translating, it is important to ensure the surface meaning of the two
languages in translation, are approximately similar and at the same time to ensure that
the structure of the source language preserved as well as possible but not so closely
that the target language structures will be seriously distorted.
Many researchers have still doubts about the importance of linguistics in translations
studies which is also reflected in the majority of scholarly papers devoted to the subject.
The linguistic relevance of information structure in the case of translation is even more
evident if Azeri and a language such as English are involved. Azeri is a free word order
language, as mentioned in introduction, in which grammatical structure is largely
determined by the articulation in theme (logical subject) and rheme (logical predictate),
whereas English does not permit much variation in word order, and syntactic structure
is defined in terms of grammatical subject and grammatical predicate. This fact alone
has important consequences for the theory and practice of translation. In addition, some
word order variation in Azeri language is due to a second type of articulation (which
may, but need not coincide with the first one), which concerns information structure
proper, i.e. distribution of known and new information in the sentence and its structural
consequences. So linguistics plays an important role in the investigation of the joint
functioning of two languages, i.e. "the translational behavior of languages". Dynamic
contrasts are differences in encoding strategies characteristic of different languages;
which become manifest only when these languages clash in the process of translation
and also, information structure is one such domain where drastic dynamic contrasts in
encoding may be encountered. The linguistic description of contrasting structures is
indespensable for adequate translation. Regarding the recognition of the importance
of context, it is quite clear that we normally do not translate sentences in isolation but
sentences which are part of a larger text or discourse. Klaudy points out research into
the translational behavior of languages and the decision making and problem solving
strategies behind translational operations may result in a systemic translation oriented
description of various language pairs. It is an adequate description of the linguistic
structure of languages. In addition to descriptive and theoretical linguistics, translation
studies may also profit from insights gained in sociolinguistics and psycholinguistics.
klaudy (1981) argues that the translator mediates not only between two languages but
also between two cultures. He must thus have certain ideas about the source language
society and the target language society, which need not always be very explicit. Socio-
linguistics attempts to reveal the relationship between language and society independently
of translation and provide scientifically well founded descriptions of this relationship.
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
In this way, sociolinguistics may contribute to the clarification of the basis of the trans-
lators' decisions. Psycholinguistics may offer an explanation of how the translation
process works. Klaudy reports, among other things, on experiments which have tried
to find out whether or not it is possible to listen and speak simultaneously. Some of the
results seem to indicate that simultaneous interpreters do not listen and speak at the same
time, but they alternate between these two activities, using the pauses of the speaker
as well as their own pauses (ibid).
In sum, then, socio and psycholinguistics, too, are important branches of research
for translation studies. As translators, we must not only know what we are doing but
also why we are doing something in the way we are doing it (ibid).
Therefore, the importance of linguistics in translation studies is obvious and clear.
Complex Sentence
Complex sentences are widely used in English writing and specially literary works.
Since in literary work the writer expresses himself in many kinds of sentences and
making complex sentences is more challenging of the very large variety of clauses
signals to choose from many combinations.
Complex sentences can be used to judge whether a work is written in a good way
or not. By which, the accuracy and variety of the work can be known. Complex sentences
are the best means of eliminating choppy sentences and giving accuracy of literary
work. It will not be satisfied until he has at down the number of simple or compound
sentences and increase the number of complex sentences. (Fauzanah, 2009, p.15).
To make his writing more accurate and everything equal, a writer will build his
main idea into part of the sentence and tuck the detail into clause, in other words, he
writes more complex sentences. Moreover, the using of more complex sentences in
work, does not show the dullness of the sentences because of the variety of the sentences
in its paragraphs and subordinate clauses, on the other hand, expresses the relations of
the writer's ideas.
Complex Sentences in English
In English, sentences are either simple or multiple. A simple sentence consists of
a single independent clause. A Multiple sentences contains one or more clauses as its
immediate constituents. Multiple sentence are either compound or complex. In a com-
pound sentence the immediate constituents are two or more coordinate clauses therefore,
the clauses of a compound sentence provide classic instances of a paratactic relationship
that is they have equivalent function. (Quirk et al, 1985, p.987). In a complex sentence,
one or more of its element, such as direct object, adverbial and etc are realized by a
subordinate clause. A complex sentence is like a simple sentence in which it consists
of only one main clause, but unlike a simple sentence, it has one or more subordinate
clauses functioning as element of the sentence. Subordination is an asymmetrical relation:
the sentence and its subordinate clauses are in a hypotactic relationship that is they form
a hierarchy in which the subordinate clause is a consistent of the sentence as a whole

On the basis of their potential functions, several major categories of subordinate
clauses are distinguished: Nominal, Relative, Adverbial and Comparative.
Since the study of subordinate wh interrogative clauses is the aim of this research
which are subcategorized in nominal clauses, here the syntactic and semantic function
of nominal clauses are mentioned briefly.
Nominal clauses (clauses approximating in function noun phrases) fall into six
major categories: That clause or subordinate declarative clauses, Subordinate inter-
rogative clauses, Subordinate exclamative clauses, Nominal relative clauses, To
infinitive clauses and Ing clauses. (Quirk et al, 1985, p.1049).
Subordinate wh interrogative Clauses
Subordinate wh-interrogative clauses occur in the whole range of functons available
to the nominal that clause and in addition may function as prepositional complement:
for example:
How the book will sell depends on the reviewers.
I can't imagine what they want with your address.
direct object
The problem is who will water my plants when I am away.
subject complement
Your original question, why he did not report it to the police earlier, has not
yet been answered.
I am not sure which she prefers.
adjectival complementation
They did not consult us on whose names should be put forward.
prepositional complement
These subordinate clauses resemble wh questions semantically in that they leave
a gap of unknown information, represented by the wh element. An infinitive wh
clause can be formed with all wh words, though instances with "why" are rare. The
infinitive clause has an obligational sense (ibid). For example:
I don't know what to say: what I should say
I'm wondering where to put my coat: where I should put my coat.
As mentioned, in this research, English subordinate wh interrogative and infinitive
wh clauses have been investigated.
Complex Sentences in Azeri
In Azeri, a sentence can be either simple or complex by its structure. (Habibli, 2008,
p.241). Simple sentences are divided into four types according to their purpose and
intonation: Narrative sentences, Imperative sentences, Interrogative sentences and ex-
clamatory sentences. The sentence that consists of two or more sentences is called a
complex sentence. In Azeri, there are two types of the complex sentences: compound
sentence (Tbesiz Mrkkb cml) and complex sentence with one or more subordinate
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
clauses (Tabeli Mrkkb cml). Like English, in Azeri also, there is one main clause
(Ba cml) and one or more dependent or subordinate clauses (Budaq cml). For
example: Mn bilmirmki, o sizin suallnza nec cavab verdi.
I do not know how he answered your
Semantically,based on the meaning of wh words used in subordinate clauses, the
are categorized; such as; time subordinate clauses (zaman budaq cml) or reason su-
bordinate clauses (sbb budaq cml) and etc.
It is necessary to mention that in Azeri instead of wh interrogative words used in
subordinations, some words and combinations are used and called connective words
Syntactically connectives classified into two groups: coordinate connectives (Ta-
besiz balayclar) and subordinate connectives (Tabeli balayclar). In contrast to
compound sentences, in which coordinate connectives are used like v (and), ya (or),
Lakin (but) and so on, in complex sentences subordinate connectives are used, such as
hara (where), nec (why), kimi/ kim (whom), kim (who) and etc. Therefore, in subor-
dinate wh interrogative clauses, in Azeri, wh words, are replaced by subordinate
connectives or tabeli baglayclar (Rosta mova, 2010).
Research Method
The purpose of this study is to investigate and analyze Azeri translations of English
subordinate wh interrogative clauses and infinitive wh clauses. This research deals
with the analysis of data in order to study Azeri translations of English complex sen-
tences, subordinate wh interrogative clauses, wh words used in subordinate clauses,
infinitive used in subordinate wh interrogative clauses. Moreover, finding the most
frequent "wh words" used in these two types of structures in original texts.
The material chosen for analysis are English fictions which involve the novels of
"For whom the Bell Tolls" written by Hemingway, "400 subjects in English" written
by vitalyevna, "Life essays" written by Gurbanov, "The Alchemist" and "By the River
Piedra I Sat Down and Wept", written by Coelho and Joyce's Dubliners (short stories).
200 subordinate wh interrogative clauses, which 100 sentences involving infinitive
constructions, along with their translations into Azeri taken from Hajiyev (2006), vi-
talyevna (2006), Gambarov (2010), Qojabayli (2006), Aslanl (2011) and Nijat (2011)
have been analyzed.
The data classified into two main categories: subordinate wh interrogative clauses
and infinitive wh clauses.
Subordinate wh interrogative clauses translated as simple sentences
involving verb combinations.

Data Findings
In this research there are two main categories, namely, subordinate wh interro-
gative clauses and subordinate involving both wh words and infinitive. Analyzing
100 data related to the Azeri translation of English subordinate wh-interrogative clauses
shows that most of them in Azeri are translated as simple sentences involving verb
combinations with the percentage of 78% and some translated as simple sentences
without verb combinations with the percentage of 12%.
Moreover, these structures, in Azeri, have been translated as complex sentence with
the percentage of 6% and as compound sentences with the percentage of 4% (Table 1).
According to table (2), it has been cleared that 68% English subordinates involving
both wh words and infinitive translated as simple sentences involving verb combi-
nations and 32% translated as complex sentences. Table (3) indicates the percentage
of errors of the mistranslation of English subordinates involving both wh-words and
infinitive in Azeri, that is 86% .
Based on table (4), it will be understood that the most frequent wh word found
in subordinate wh-interrogative clauses of original texts is "what" with the percentage
of 32% and the least one is "whom" with the percentage of 7%.
According to findings of this research, the most frequent wh-word used in subor-
dinates involving both wh-words and infinitive construction in original texts, is "how"
with the percentage of 53% and wh word "where" with the least one, 11%.
Discussion and Conclusion
Based on 200 data, it has been cleared that in Azeri, English subordinate wh
interrogative clauses and subordinates involving both wh words and infinitive cons-
truction, are translated as simple sentences consisting verb combinations.
Here it seems necessary to mention that verb combinations in Azeri, are generally
three types: verb conjunctions (Feli balama) which are some suffixes added to the verb
and semantically expressing notions like time, manner, reason and etc. For example,
"Drgy atanda gstrrsn".
anda = feli balama
Some verb conjunctions' suffixes are anda, nd, araq, rk, dqda, dikd, and so
on. Another verb combination is participle (Feli Sift), which involve some suffixes
added to the verb, functioning both like verb and adjective.
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
Suffixes like acaq, ck, dq, dik, duq, dk, acaq, ck , are a number of participle
making suffixes. In the sentence, "Dyd zm nec aparacam bilmirm".
aca in "aparacam" named as participle making suffix. The word regarded as
particple or Feli sift.
The last verb combination is verb noun combinations.
They are also made by adding some suffixes such as
- a-a- , --, -ar, iyi, and ets. These combinations functioning both as the verb and
noun, such as: cavan olann ona dediyi eyi baa drd".

verb - noun
It should be noted that "participle" (Feli sifat) is the most frequent construction
found in Azeri translation of subordinate wh interrogative clauses and subordinates
consisting both wh words and infinitive construction. Generally it can be concluded
that these complex sentences are translated as simple sentences and there is a tendency
in Azeri, that is using of simple sentences involving verb combinations.
These structures are used for translating of majority of English sentences such as
complex sentences. Regarding the subordinates involving both wh-words and infinitive
construction, which have the obligational sense, it should be said that in Azeri translation
of these structures, the meaning of them has not been considered and majority of transla-
ted sentences do not express the obligational sense. For example the sentence "I learned
how to care for sheep" translated as "Qoyunlara baxma bilirm", which should be
translated as " Qoyunlara nec baxmaliyniy, bilirm", because the suffix "mal" in the
verb "baxmaliyniy" shows the obligation sense in Azeri. Another important point in
Azeri translation of these complex sentences, is that unlike English, subordinate clauses
come before main clause and the verb of subordinate clauses translated as verb com-
bination and the verb of main clause regarded as the main verb of the sentence. In
addition, the infinitive construction is not translated as infinitive in Azeri. Based on
findings of this research, it has been translated as verb combinations specially verb
conjunctions form (Feli balama).
As mentioned earlier, in translation, translator is transferring meaning of the source
language in the form of target language. Moreover paying attention to the structure of
the source language is necessary, and should be preserved as well as possible but not
so closely that target language structures will be seriously distorted. Therefore trans-
lation is always more than simply writing in the sense of putting words to paper. It is
suggested that in the literature of translation studies, in translation classrooms even in
language learning classes, students and learners compare and contrast translation with
their originals. It is useful for language learning, translation, education, lexicography,
finding equivalents for source language expressions, terms, structures and so on. It is
hoped that the results of the research may be used as additional information for the
teachers, especially in teaching English grammar and translation courses. Also, the results
may help Azerbaijanian translators, English learners and translator trainees for being
able to provide the translation of English subordinate wh- interrogative clauses and
subordinate involving both wh- clause and infinitive construction.

We observe that many linguists carried out researches about the etymology of English words. The
vocabulary of English language, as well as any other language in the world, has a lot of borrowed words.
In fact native words comprise only 30% of the total number of words and 70% of them are borrowed ones.
Usually most of the borrowed words belong to a specific semantic group which enables us to understand
its origin: names of fruits and vegetables; people, objects and ideas associated with church and religious
rituals are mainly from Latin origin. Numerous terms of everyday life were borrowed from French. Edu-
cational, military, legal and administrative words are from Norman-French origin. Especially the researches
on the structural features to understand the origin of words attracts the attention. Above mentioned article
deals with the ways to recognize the origin of English words due to its affixes. Affixation has always been
one of the productive and long lasting word building processes in English. In some words affixes are so
assimilated to a word that it is quite impossible to separate them from the stem of a word. The article
examines such affixes and their derivation. Moreover, the list of some affixes, the original language that
they belong to, as well as example words are given to make the purpose clear.
Key words: Etymology, affixation, suffixes, prefixes, origin of words and affixes.

Etymology - is the study of the origin of words, including an account of their ori-
ginal meaning, form and subsequent linguistic history. The word etymology is derived
from a Greek word etymologia: etymon-truth and logos-word, science. [5,101]
There is no language in the world that its word-stock would have consisted only
of purely native words. Etymologically the vocabulary of English language is far from
being homogenous. It consists of two layers - the native stock of words and the borrowed
stock of words. The words that have been inherited from the language, or dialects, of
the Anglo-Saxon invaders of Great Britain in the fifth century A.D. are called native

words and are to be distinguished from borrowed words, those that have entered English
vocabulary from other sources, such as Latin and Greek. [1, 21] Borrowed words or
loanwords are words taken from another language and modified according to the patterns
of the receiving language. The number of the borrowings in the vocabulary of the lan-
guage and the role played by them is determined by the historical development of the
nation speaking the language. In English vocabulary the borrowed stock of words is
considerably larger than the native stock of words. In fact native words comprise only
30% of the total number of words
and 70% of them are borrowed ones. [6]
English itself belongs to the German languages group and it has borrowed a lot
of words from Roman and Greek languages groups. When analyzing borrowed words
one should distinguish between two terms - source of borrowing and origin of borrowing.
There is certain confusion between these two terms. So when describing the words as
Latin, French or Scandinavian borrowings we point out their source but not their origin.
The term origin of the word should be applied to the language the word may be traced
to. Thus the French borrowing table is Latin by origin. (Latin tabula). The Latin
borrowing school came into Latin from the Greek language (Greek schola), so it
is described as Greek by origin.
In many cases a borrowed word, especially one borrowed long ago is practically
indistinguishable from a native word without a thorough etymological analysis. But
there are certain structural features which enable us to identify some words as borro-
wings and even to determine the source language. For example, it is already established
that the use of sk (sc) group in a word, usually indicates Scandinavian origin: sky, skill,
skin, ski, skirt, to scowl, to scare, to bask. [3, 38], [4, 117]. Another way of distinguishing
a borrowed word is through analyzing the affixes in it.
Affixation has been one of the most productive ways of word-building throughout
the history of English. It consists in adding an affix to the stem of a definite part of
speech. Affixation is divided into suffixation and prefixation.
French affixes
The suffix -ance arrogance, endurance, hindrance, etc.
The suffix -ence consequence, intelligence, patience, etc.
The suffix -ment appointment, development, experiment, etc.
The suffix -age courage, marriage, passage, village, etc.
The suffix -ess tigress, lioness, actress, adventuress, etc.
Adjectives The suffix -ous curious, dangerous, joyous, serious, etc.
Verbs The prefix en- enable, endear, enact, enfold, enslave, etc.

The suffix -ion communion, legion, opinion, session, union, etc.
The suffix -tion relation, revolution, starvation, temptation, unification, etc.
The suffix -ate [eit] appreciate, create, congratulate, etc.
The suffix -ute [ju:t] attribute, contribute, constitute, distribute, etc.
The remnant suffix -ct act, conduct, collect, connect, etc.
The remnant suffix -d(e) applaud, divide, exclude, include, etc.
The prefix dis- disable, distract, disown, disagree, etc.
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
The suffix -able detestable, curable, etc.
The suffix -ate [it] accurate, desperate, graduate, etc.
The suffix -ant arrogant, constant, important, etc.
The suffix -ent absent, convenient, decent, evident, etc.
The suffix -or major, minor, junior, senior, etc.
The suffix -al cordial, final, fraternal, maternal, etc.
The suffix -ar lunar, solar, familiar, etc.
Suffixation: The main function of suffixes in Modern English is to form one part
of speech from another, the secondary function is to change the lexical meaning of the
same part of speech, e.g. educate v educatee n, journal n-journalist n.
Prefixation: Prefixation is the formation of words by means of adding a prefix to
the stem. In English it is characteristic for forming verbs. The main function of prefixes
in English is to change the lexical meaning of the same part of speech, e.g. happy-
unhappy, head overhead.
We can recognize words of Latin and French origin by certain suffixes, prefixes
or endings. The two tables below will help us in this
Here is a list of some more affixes origin:
Origin of suffixes:
a. Native (Germanic): -er teacher, -ful careful, -less painless, -ly swiftly, -dom freedom,
-ed educated, -en shorten, -hood priesthood, childhood, -ing king (O.E. word),
meeting, -ish childish, -ness darkness, -ship friendship, -teen seventeen, -ty ninety, -
ward upward;
b. Romanic: -tion attention, -ment development, -able/-ible terrible, moveable, -age
package, -ance/ence reference, attendance, -ate cultivate;
c. Greek: -ist taxist, -ism capitalism, -ize organize;
Origin of prefixes:
a. Native (Germanic): un- unable, unrest, unhappy, over- over-nice, over-time, over-
feed, under- underestimate, to underlie, to undergo, to understand, undercoat, with-

This article deals with the relationship between cohesion and coherence and its importance in discource.
An awareness of cohesion and coherence in all texts is a very important skill for language learners, students
to develop.
A text is cohesive if its elements are linked together. Cohesion can be thought of as all the grammatical
and lexical links that link one part of a text to another. Cohesive devices also include transitional words
and phrases ,repetition of key words and use of reference words. It means that for language learners it is
too important to understand cohesitive devices in a text. Otherwise in some occasions we can see some
misunderstanding .
A text is coherent if it makes sense. When sentences, ideas, and details fit together clearly, discourse
can be understood easily and it will be coherent. It should be clear that cohesion and coherent are not the
same things. However, a text may be cohesive (linked together), but incoherent and this incoherentness
can lead some misunderstanding. The problem here is not so much that we cannot understand what is being
said but we cannot see the point of saying it.
The general point to be made is that no matter how many cohesive devices are used or the extent to
which it is interpreted as coherent, discource will always depend on contextual realities that readers are
familiar with in the particular socio-cultural world they live in. That is why in written discourse ,writers
should always keep their readers in mind.
Key words: discourse ,textual connections, cohesion, coherence, contextual realities.

An awareness of cohesion and coherence in all texts is a very important skill for
language learners,students to develop.
Text processing has always occupied a prominent place in discourse research. On
the one hand ,text researchers are interested in the mechanism of textual cohesion. On
the other hand, they propose hypothesis to explain assumptions of coherence in the
mind of the reader. Text discusses cohesion as the setting up of meaning relations across
sentences by means of a set of linguistic devices which links sentences together.[2,10]
Cohesion is the glue that holds a piece of discourse together. In other words, if a
paper is cohesive, it sticks together from sentence to sentence and from paragraph to
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2

paragraph.Cohesion can be thought of as all the grammatical and lexical links that link
one part of a text to another. This includes use of synonyms, lexical sets, pronouns,
verb tenses, time references, grammatical reference, etc. For example, 'it', 'neither' and
'this' all refer to an idea previously mentioned. 'First of all', 'then' and 'after that' help
to sequence a text. 'However', 'in addition' and 'for instance' link ideas and arguments
in a text.
Cohesive devices also include transitional words and phrases, such as therefore,
furthermore, or for instance, that clarify for readers the relationships among ideas in a
piece of writing. However, transitions aren't enough to make discourse cohesive. Re-
petition of key words and use of reference words are also needed for cohesion. For
Tony Blair was on his way to BucharestThe Prime Minister astonished his ad-
visers by suddenly announcing on the airplane that he was going to promise Romania
early membership of the European Union in return for its continued asking.[4,43]
Here he is identified as having a referential link to The Prime Minister and Tony
Blair. Lets consider another pronoun ,its, as it occurs in the second part of this text. Its
encodes the semantic features of singular and non-human and these features are to be
found in Romania, the European Union ,and even in memberhip of the European Union,
so it could be linked linguistically to any of these three. Here the cohesive devices helps
us. The appropriate connection corresponds most closely with the readers contextual
knowledge of the world. The identification of connections that are linguistically sig-
nalled, like these between a pronoun and a noun phrase, enables us to recognize the
cohesion of a text.
It means that for language learners it is too important to understand cohesion con-
nections in a text. Otherwise in some occasions when writers use minimal pro-norms,
we can see some misunderstanding:
Unfortunately in the weeks to come autumn leaves will create a dangerous hazard,
especially to the elderly when they fall and become a soggy mess on the pavement.
Here the pronoun they copies only the semantic feature of plurality. There are two
plural noun phrases in the text which are linguistic candidates for co-textual linkage;
autumn leaves and the elderly. Here if we do not think about cohesion not paying
attention to the previous mention one-autumn leaves, we can call up a fanciful,comic
context which sets up an anaphoric connection with the pronoun and the elderly,so
that it is they who fall and become a soggy mess on the pavement.
As we have seen, how far texts are made cohesive depends on the judgement of the
producers of the texts about what meanings they can assume .Cohesive devices are only
aids to understanding and can only be effective to the extent that they enable readers
to construct meaning that makes contextual sense to them.In other words to the extent
that the cohesion in the text enables them to derive a coherent discourse from it.
Coherence can be thought of as how meanings and sequences of ideas relate to
each other. Typical examples would be general>particular; statement>example; problem
> solution; question> answer; claim> counter-claim.[1,29]
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
When sentences, ideas, and details fit together clearly, readers can follow along
easily, and the writing is coherent. The ideas tie together smoothly and clearly. The
cohesive devices link parts of a text together. It is important to note ,however they link
parts of the texts together so that new content is understood in relation to the context
that has been established in the readers mind by what has been said before .
The process may seem complicated but actually it is not really, so long as you
prepare things in advance and know what has to be done in what order. Some of the
things you need you may already have but others, of course, you may need to get. They
are not always readily available and when they are they can be quite expensive. But the
find result will make all the effort and cost worthwhile. [78,5]
It follows from this that it is possible for a text to be cohesive but incoherent. Here
we have a text that is co-textually well connected with cohesive devices.The trouble is
that the reader cannot key the text into a context so as to make sense of it.We cannot
tell what this text is supposed to be .The problem here is not so much that we cannot
understand what is being said but we cannot see the point of saying it and so we find
it incoherent as discourse , though it is as text.
Good writers are able to "keep their reader in mind". Keeping your reader in mind
does not guarantee coherence, but it would seem to be a prerequisite because discourse
will always depend on how far it can be related to contextual realities.
So, finally, we can come to such kind of conclusion that for texts being cohesive
and coherent is very important. Inspite of the fact that we can have such texts that lack
of cohesion or coherence, they are not considered well organized.

English today is one of the most hybrid and rapidly changing languages in the world. New users of the
language are not just passively absorbing, but actively shaping it, breeding a variety of regional Englishes,

as well as pidgins and English-lexified creoles. Also, as in an increasing number of countries English is
becoming an element of core education, a near-universal basic skill, native-speaker norms are losing both in
relevance and in reverence. This unique linguistic phenomenon has immediate consequences for the lan-
guage classroom which is the subject of this present paper.
Keywords: English, power, status, diversity, young.

Historically, English originated from the fusion of languages and dialects, now
collectively termed Old English which were brought to the eastern coast of Great Britain
by Germanic (Anglo-Saxon) settlers by the 5th century with the word English being
derived from the name of the Angles. A significant number of English words are cons-
tructed based on roots from Latin, because Latin in some form was the lingua franca
of the Christian Church and of European intellectual life. The language was further
influenced by the Old Norse language due to Viking invasions in the 8th and 9th centuries.
Today the spread of English so unprecedented that the "non-native English-speakers"
worldwide outnumber native ones 3 to 1. In Asia alone, the number of English users
has topped 350 million - roughly the combined populations of the United States, the
UK and Canada. There are more Chinese children studying English - about 100 million -
than there are Britons (that's nearly twice as many) Some scholars maintain that you
cannot actually count the number of words in the language because it is impossible to
say exactly what a word is, talking rather of memes and other linguistic constructs, are
afraid that Global English is just another form of cultural Imperialism. One possibility
of its phenomenal growth could the plethora of localized lishes, such as Chinglish,
Hinglish (a Hindi-English hybrid) and Spanglish (an English-Spanish hybrid) branching
from English, they become mutually unintelligible tongues sharing a common root,
much as Latin did in Medieval Europe.
Many linguists agree that if the lishes splinter, Hinglish will likely become the most
prominent offshoot by virtue of sheer numbers, giving Indian primary ownership of the
GLM (Global Language Monitor) take the classic view of the language as understood
in Elizabethan England, where a word was a thing spoken or an idea spoken. Others
say that English is undergoing a rebirth unlike any seen since the time of Shakespeare,
when English was emerging as the modern tongue known to us today. (Shakespeare,
himself, added about 1700 words to the Codex.) English has emerged as the lingua
franca of the planet, the primary communications vehicle of the Internet, high technology,
international commerce, entertainment, and the like.
There are different ways in which English as a means of communication is evolving,
developing into literally separate languages, yet which are still understandable by those
who speak any version of English. The beauty of English is that from the earliest times it
has been able to incorporate and adapt words from other languages," said Jeremy But-
terfield, editor-in-chief of Collins Dictionaries. "Already we probably can't get through
the day without using words derived from Indian languages. At least 26 new words of
joint Hindi and English derivation - have found their way into the dictionary.

The new English-speakers aren't just passively absorbing the language-they're
shaping it. New Englishes are mushrooming the globe over, ranging from "Englog," the
Tagalog-infused English spoken in the Philippines, to "Japlish," the cryptic English
poetry beloved of Japanese copywriters ("Your health and loveliness is our best wish,"
reads a candy wrapper. "Give us a chance to realize it"), to "Hinglish," the mix of Hindi
and English that now crops up everywhere from fast-food ads to South Asian college
campuses. The great number of Hindi speakers in the United Kingdom has produced
a strain of the language unlike that spoken on the Indian subcontinent where it began.
This has given rise to Hindlish, also known as Hinglish, an informal term for the mixture
of Hindi and English that includes such phrases as city kotwali or "city police station."
Hinglish is not considered a full-blown diaspora language but it appears to be developing
into one. Nevertheless, the abundance of new words and phrases, unlikely as this may
seem, can and will impact Global English as it evolves through the twenty-first century.
As a language with many originsRomance, Germanic, Norse, Celtic and so on
English was bound to be a mess. But its elasticity makes it messier, as well as stronger.
When it comes to new words, English puts up few barriers to entry. Every year publi-
shers bring out new dictionaries listing neologisms galore. The past decade, for instance,
has produced not just a host of Internettery, computerese and phonebabble (browsers,
downloading, texting and so on) but quantities of teenspeak (fave, fit, pants,
phat, sad). All are readily received by English, however much some fogies may
resist them.
All languages are works in progress. But English's globalization, unprecedented
in the history of languages, will revolutionize it in ways we can only begin to imagine.
In the future, there could be a tri-English world, one in which you could speak a local
English-based dialect at home, a national variety at work or school, and international
Standard English to talk to foreigners.
With native speakers a shrinking minority of the world's Anglophones, there's a
growing sense that students should stop trying to emulate Brighton or Boston English,
and embrace their own local versions. Researchers are starting to study non-native
speakers' "mistakes" - "She look very sad," for example - as structured grammars. In a
generation's time, teachers might no longer be correcting students for saying "a book
who" or "a person which."
Linguist Jennifer Jenkins, an expert in world Englishes at King's College London,
asks why some Asians, who have trouble pronouncing the "th" sound, should spend
hours trying to say "thing" instead of "sing" or "ting." International pilots, she points out,
already pronounce the word "three" as "tree" in radio dispatches, since "tree" is more
widely comprehensible.
English has become the common linguistic denominator. Whether you're an Indian
executive on business in Shanghai, a German Eurocrat hammering out laws in Brussels
or a Brazilian biochemist at a conference in Sweden, you're probably speaking English.
And as the world adopts an international brand of English, it's native speakers who
have the most to lose. Cambridge dons who insist on speaking the Queen's English

could be met with giggles - or blank stares. British or American business execs who
jabber on in their own idiomatic patois, without understanding how English is used by
non-natives, might lose out on deals.
Technology also plays a huge role in English's global triumph. Eighty percent of
the electronically stored information in the world is in English; 66 percent of the world's
scientists read in it, according to the British Council. "It's very important to learn English
because [computer] books are only in English," say many Gujarati students, learning
English in coaching classes. New technologies are helping people pick up the language,
too: students can get English-usage tips on their mobile phones. English-language
teachers point to the rise of Microsoft English, where computer users are drafting letters
advised by the Windows spell check and pop-up style guides
The world is changing. Inevitably, so are our words. Ten years ago, no one had
heard of H1N1, Web 2.0, n00b, or talked about de-friending someone on
Twitter or Face book. Now these are part of peoples everyday vocabulary. The
English language is going through an explosion of word creation. New words are coined
some, like n00b, may not even look like words; old words take on new meanings
twitter today bears little relation to the Middle English twiteren. According to the
Global Language Monitor (GLM), in 2009 the English language tipped the scales with
a vocabulary of one million words. .
GLM, the San Diego-based language watcher, publishes annual lists of top words
and phrases by tracking words in the global print and electronic media, the Internet,
blogs, and social media such as Twitter and YouTube. Each years list reflects major
concerns and changes taking place that year. For instance, from the 2009 list, we have
to acknowledge the fact that technology is reshaping our ways of living (twitter, web
2.0). We need to face up to the after-effects of a financial tsunami (stimulus, forec-
losure), a pandemic (H1N1), the death of revered pop icon (MJ, King of Pop) and the
debates over healthcare reform and climate change that mark the year.
The extinction of most languages is probably unstoppable. Television and radio,
both blamed for homogenisation, may, paradoxically, prolong the life of some by narrow-
casting in minority tongues. And though many languages may die, more people may
also be able to speak several languages: multilingualism, a commonplace among the
least educated peoples of Africa, is now the norm among Dutch, Scandinavians and,
increasingly, almost everyone else. Native English-speakers, however, are becoming
less competent at other languages: only nine students graduated in Arabic from uni-
versities in the United States last year, and the British are the most monoglot of all the
peoples of the EU. Thus the triumph of English not only destroys the tongues of others;
it also isolates native English-speakers from the literature, history and ideas of other
peoples. It is, in short, a thoroughly dubious triumph. But then who's for Esperanto?
Not the staff of this newspaper, that's for sure.

This article contributes to the study of the category of negation and its explicit and implicit components
by providing linguistic evidence. Explicit negation denotes direct and clear denial while implicit negation
conveys indirect and confidential absence, lack and objection. Though the category of negation was learned
over and again in the history of linguistics implicit negation has not still been well investigated in com-
parison with explicit one. Therefore , the aim of this article is to give full description of implicit negation, its
usage, components and lexical, semantical, morphological, phraseological and syntactical characteristics. In
other words, implicit negation is analyzed as a syntax-morphology, lexic-semantical interface phenomenon.
Key words: negation, implicit negation, negative constituents.

Nb, whose real name was Joseph, was born in Urfa in 1642. In his early twenties he went to Istanbul,
the scientific and cultural center of the Ottoman Empire, and participated in discussions on science where at
the same time he was given a chance to meet the sultan and his viziers. Nb wrote several appraisals to the
rulers of the Empire, and consequently became famous soon and was recognized by the most significant
poets of the age.
One of the most important works of Nb, who was also considered to be the founder of "hikem ekol"
that aimed at making people use their thinking and reasoning skills, was the Turkish Divan. Nb was using
Hikemi style, especially much in Ghazals.

eserler yazlmtr. Her ne kadar belli dnemlerde deiik evreler tarafndan ktle-
mek maksadyla adna Saray Edebiyat ya da Yksek Zmre Edebiyat eklinde
adlandrlp sadece belli bir zmreye ait gibi gsterilmi olsa da herkesin faydalanaca
tarzda byk bir marifet ve sanat zellii tayan eserler kaleme alnmtr. Nasl ki
Halk edebiyatnn kendine has baz zellikleri varsa, Divan edebiyatnn da kendine
has zellikleri bulunmaktadr. XIII. yzyldan balayarak XIX. yzyln ortalarna kadar
uzun bir zaman dilimi ierisinde stanbul merkezli olarak zellikle Anadolu toprakla-
rnda gelien Divan edebiyatnda manzum olarak yazlan mesnevi, gazel, kaside, rubi,
tuyu, terkib-i bend gibi nazm eitlerinin yannda tarihler, hikyeler, tercmeler ve
biyografik eserler de mevcuttur. Bu denli geni bir alanda eserler yazlan bu edebiyat
sadece sarayda yaayan belli bir zmreye aitmi gibi gstermek doru olmaz.
Divan edebiyatndaki airlerin mesleklerine ve makamlarna baktmzda padiah-
lardan, vezirlerden, eyalet valilerinden tutun da demircilere, ipekilere, kunduraclara
kadar deiik kademelerden insanlarn olduunu grmekteyiz. Yani halkn en alt taba-
kasndan devletin en st kademesine kadar deiik meslek gruplarndan airler olmutur.
Divan airleri sadece saraylarda deil kahvehanelerde, meyhanelerde, uara mec-
lislerinde bir araya gelerek hnerlerini gsterirlerdi. XVI. yzyln mehur airlerinden
olan Ztnin meslei remilcilikti. Ayn zamanda iir yazarak da para kazanyordu.
Beyazt camisinin avlusunda at dkkn ise airler iin urak yeri olmutu. Yine
XV. yzyl airlerinden Enver okuma-yazma bilmeyen Divan edebiyat airidir. Yni
Divan edebiyat sadece belli kesime has, anlalmayan, yksek zmreye hitap eden bir
edebiyat deil; genel olarak o dnemde toplumun her kesimini iine alan geni bir alana
yaylm bir edebiyat tr olma zelliini gstermektedir.
Halk edebiyatnda iirler hece vezni ile yazlrken, Divan edebiyatnda aruz vez-
niyle yazlmtr. Tabi ki sanat yapma anlay n planda olduu iin Arapa ve Farsa
kelime ve terkipler daha fazla kullanlm, ssl ve mecazl ifadelere daha fazla yer
verilmitir. Ayrca Divan edebiyatnn teekkl ettii dnemde Arapa bilim dili, Farsa
ise kltr ve sanat dili olarak kullanlmaktayd. Medreselerde Arapa ve Farsa re-
tiliyordu. Yazlan eserlerde edeb sanata ve mnya nem veriliyor, daha nce kullanl-
mam orijinal ifadeler kullanlmaya gayret ediliyordu. Edeb sanat yapma gayesi n
plana knca yazlan eserler halkn konuma dilinden uzak kalyordu.

Nb dneminde yaz dilinde kullanlan alfabe Arap alfabesine birka harf eklenerek

mak kolayd. Uzatlarak okunmas gereken harflerin yanna uzatma harfleri konularak
bu harflerin uzun okunmas salanyordu. Trkiye Cumhuriyeti kurulduktan sonra 1928
ylnda Arap alfabesinden Latin alfabesine geildiinde Arap ve Fars kkenli kelime-

tii vurgulanmaktadr.
Gnmz Trkiye Trkesinde dzeltme iaretinin kullanlmamas anlam kark-
lna sebebiyet vermiyorsa yazda kullanlmamaktadr. Fakat kelime seslendirilirken

zeltme iareti varm gibi telaffuz edilir.
Trkler ve Farslar tarihin ok eski devirlerinden beri siyas, meden ve iktisad

kenli kelimenin Trkeye gemesinde etkili olmutur.

The article deals with the richness and complexity of American novel and of Oriental theme which
binds some major elements together in the unity of an American culture. The research on American Novel
and the Orient by the scholar Nigar Isgandarova is a valuable contribution to the comparative study of
Literature in Azerbaijan.
The value of this critical monographical research is presumably in its realistic approach to the above
mentioned theme. And the most impressive feature of the book is the way that the author expresses her
thoughts and arguments in a well-built style.
All the possibilities that Nigar Isgandarova explores, might be regarded as formulating her criticism
on intercultural relations.
Key words: American nowel, Oriental theme, relations.

Dame Iris Murdoch (15 July 1918-8 February1999) an Irish-born British novelist philosopher and
poet,. one of the most famous and respected writers of the XX century, the author of 28 fiction, 5 philosophy
works, 6 plays and two poetry collections. She is the winner of the Booker Prize and other prestigious
literary awards, honorary member of the Royal Literary Society, a nominee for the Nobel Prize. The Times
named her among their list of The 50 Greatest British Writers Since 1945. She was made a Dame
Commander of the British Empire She became a classic during her lifetime.
Murdoch defines a novel as a picture and a comment of human existence. She is a supporter of the
philosophy of the novel, which restores a sense of fullness and complexity of human life. The novel should
include a "tragic discovery." Iris Murdoch said that the literature has assumed some of the tasks previously
carried out by philosophy. The novel requires eloquence and reasoning. However, the truly philosophical
can only be the novel, where the man isnt theorizes, but represents the unique human personality. Roman
must tell the truth about the man. The writer appreciates romance, dreams and rebellion in a man and his

desire for spiritual values. E. Dipple points out: One of Murdoch s primary aims as a novelist is to convince
her reader of the unpredictable, uncontrollable nature of real people in the real world .. . .

Key words: Iris Murdoch, prestigious literary awards, Philosophy, novel, human personality,

Vladimir Nabokov was a Russian-born writer who wrote both in russian and, after emigrating to
America, in english, and is one of the great literary figures of the 20th century. He was known to be a great
chess problemist,he wrote several books containing chess references,most notably The Luzhin Defence,
the story of a chess genius descent into madness,which was adapted in a movie in 2000. In 1929, he wrote
Luzhins Defense which was published in 1930 in Berlin. The plot concerns Aleksandr Ivanovich Luzhin
who learns how to play chess and becomes a world class player. He is later paired against Turati ,a world
class player from Italy, to determine who would face the current world champion. Before and during the
game, Luzhin has a mental breakdown.He later climbs out a window and falls to his death, committing
suicide.The character of Luzhin is based on Curt von Bardeleben,who committed suicide by jumping out
a window in Berlin on January 31, 1924.
I want to analyse this novel not only as a ordinary reader, because Luzhin Defense attracted me as
a chessplayer.So, Luzhin is the main character of novel and he is chessplayer.Chess is the game ,but it
becomes the real life of Luzhin. In my opinion, Luzhin is weak willed person and feels himself so alone in
real life, therefore he wants to live in chess life. Even he comprehends the world as a chessboard. Furthermore,
he can not understand that it is possible to lose the game, but to lose in your real life is horrible. The writer
describes two Luzhin-real lifes Luzhin (Aleksandr Ivanovich) and chess worlds Luzhin. Beauty, cruelty
and time is the main idea of novel. The last line of the novel reads: The door was burst in. 'Aleksandr
Ivanovich, Aleksandr Ivanovich,' roared several voices. But there was no Aleksandr Ivanovich. It shows
that death was the only way for Luzhin to save himself .

(On the basis of Shakespeares Tempest and Merchant of Venice)
Aziz Chankaya
Qafqaz University
Shakespeare's uses the themes of Justice and Mercy in the Tempest and the Merchant of Venice in
order to focus the attention of audience on justice and mercy. He wants to define what they are and
expect the audience to take their lesson from them.Sheakespeare correlates the similar endings in both
Key Words. Justice , Mercy ,Tempest , Merchant of Venice .

In Renaissance period of plays Merchant and The Tempest, Shakespeare proposes
ideas of justice and mercy that hold true in both plays. In order to understand that they
mean we should look up dictionaries but in order to judge if something is merciful, one
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
must look to see if it fulfills the qualifications of mercy in the Holy Books especially
the New Testament. Now that we have firm definitions on what mercy and justice are
in the context of Shakespeare's time, it is possible to see how each of these played a
role in these plays.(1)
In The Merchant of Venice, mercy and justice play an important role in determining
the results of it. It would be fair to say that mercy was given to Antonio and not Shylock.
For Antonio, the other cheek was turned and he was able to be spared the loss of his
life, even though he had entered into a contract in which he put this on the line. On the
other hand, money was not given to Shylock who was also harmed by being forced to
convert. However, when looking at why mercy was given to one and not the other, we
must look at how justice was applied. In Antonio's case, he is a Catholic merchant from
Europe, unlike the prince of Morocco. However, even though Shylock was also a Euro-
pean, he was not a Christian , justice did not apply. However, in context, was justice
served? Of course it was served, for not only was the spirit of it upheld but it was also
carried out how it was meant to be carried out. (2)
In The Tempest, Shakespeare again uses the concepts of justice and mercy in order
to have his audience think about what just and merciful actions were taken. At the end
of the play, when Prospero releases Caliban from his bondage, this action, by definition,
is merciful, but in no way is it just. By releasing Caliban from his control, Prospero has
taken a love thy neighbor as yourself mentality and, this, is merciful. However, when
determining if these actions are just, they are only just if Prospero wanted to give up
his control. In lines 163 - 175 of act four, scene one, Prospero gives up his control over
nature. In these lines we see that Prospero is troubled and in general just worn out, but
we do not see if he wants to do it. (3)When he arrived on the island and imprisoned
Caliban, this was just because Prospero was doing what he wanted to do and was not
harming any other Catholic European in the process. However, this behavior of mentally
imprisoning someone else is and was not merciful. In this play, Shakespeare's views
of justice and mercy again come into conflict when dealing with Prospero and Caliban.
(4)However, by applying the same idea of mercy in this play, as he did in Merchant,
Shakespeare is able to correlate a merciful end in both plays.

William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in
the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and
the "Bard of Avon". Amazingly, we know very little about Shakespeares life. Even though he is the worlds
most famous and popular playwright, historians have had to fill in the gaps between the handful of surviving
records from Elizabethan times. So, Shakespeare was born and brought up in Stratford-upon-Avon. At the
age of 18, he married Anne Hathaway, with whom he had three children: Susanna, and twins Hamnet and
Judith. Between 1585 and 1592, he began a successful career in London as an aactor, writer, and part owner
of a playing company called the Lord Chamberlain's Men, later known as the King's Men. He appears to
have retired to Stratford around 1613 at age 49, where he died three years later.
Key Words: Creativity , Globe , Plays.

Shakespeare produced most of his known work between 1589 and 1613.His early
plays were mainly comedies and histories, genres he raised to the peak of sophistication
and artistry by the end of the 16th century. He then wrote mainly tragedies until about
1608, including Hamlet, King Lear, Othello, and Macbeth, considered some of the finest
works in the English language. In his last phase, he wrote tragicomedies, also known
as romances, and collaborated with other playwrights. Many of his plays were published
in editions of varying quality and accuracy during his lifetime. In 1623, two of his former
theatrical colleagues published the First Folio, a collected edition of his dramatic works
that included all but two of the plays now recognised as Shakespeare's.
Shakespeare was a respected poet and playwright in his own day. In the 20th century,
his work was repeatedly adopted and rediscovered by new movements in scholarship
and performance. His plays remain highly popular today and are constantly studied,
performed, and reinterpreted in diverse cultural and political contexts throughout the
world. His surviving works, including some collaborations, consist of about 38 plays,
154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been
translated into every major living language and are performed more often than those
of any other playwright.
Shakespeare's dramatic career falls naturally into four successive divisions of in-
creasing maturity. The first of the four periods thus disclosed is that of experiment and
preparation, from about 1588 to about 1593, when Shakespeare tried his hand at virtually
every current kind of dramatic work. Its most important product is 'Richard III,' a me-
lodramatic chronicle-history play, largely imitative of Marlowe and yet showing striking
power. At the end of this period Shakespeare issued two rather long narrative poems
on classical subjects, 'Venus and Adonis,' and 'The Rape of Lucrece,' dedicating them
both to the young Earl of Southampton, who thus appears as his patron. Both display

great fluency in the most luxuriant and sensuous Renaissance manner. Probably at about
the end of his first period, also, he began the composition of his sonnets, of which we
have already spoken.
The second period of Shakespeare's work, extending from about 1594 to about 1601,
is occupied chiefly with chronicle-history plays and happy comedies. The chronicle-
history plays begin with the subtile and fascinating, though not yet absolutely masterful
study of contrasting characters in 'Richard II'; continue through the two parts of 'Henry
IV,' where the realistic comedy action of Falstaff and his group makes history familiarly
vivid; and end with the epic glorification of a typical English hero-king in 'Henry V.'
The comedies include the charmingly fantastic 'Midsummer Night's Dream'; 'The
Merchant of Venice,' where a story of tragic sternness is strikingly contrasted with the
most poetical idealizing romance and yet is harmoniously blended into it; 'Much Ado
About Nothing,' a magnificent example of high comedy of character and wit; 'As You
Like It,' the supreme delightful achievement of Elizabethan and all English pastoral
romance; and 'Twelfth Night,' where again charming romantic sentiment is made beli-
evable by combination with a story of comic realism. Even in the one, unique, tragedy
of the period, 'Romeo and Juliet,' the main impression is not that of the predestined
tragedy, but that of ideal youthful love, too gloriously radiant to be viewed with sorrow
even in its fatal outcome.
The third period, extending from about 1601 to about 1609, includes Shakespeare's
great tragedies and certain cynical plays, which formal classification mis-names comedies.
In these plays as a group Shakespeare sets himself to grapple with the deepest and
darkest problems of human character and life; but it is only very uncertain inference
that he was himself passing at this time through a period of bitterness and disillusion.
The theory persistently advocated during the last half century that Shakespeare's
works were really written not by himself but by Francis Bacon or some other person
can never gain credence with any competent judge. Our knowledge of Shakespeare's
life, slight as it is, is really at least as great as that which has been preserved of almost
any dramatist of the period; for dramatists were not then looked on as persons of per-
manent importance. No poet bending his energies to the composition of such master-
pieces as Shakespeare's could. Second, the cipher systems are absolutely arbitrary and
unscientific, applied to any writings whatever can be made to 'prove' anything that one
likes. Third, it has been demonstrated more than once that the verbal coincidences on which
the cipher systems rest are no more numerous than the law of mathematical probabilities
requires. Aside from actually vicious pursuits, there can be no more melancholy waste
of time than the effort to demonstrate that Shakespeare is not the real author of his
reputed works.
In the scientific area his creative works have been used by great pleasure in abstracts,
course works, articles, diplomas up today. Because of modern life his plays are being
reviving in the films. Especially the youngs love his masterpiece Romeo and Juliet that
deals with love. The thousand of centures had been already passed and after this will
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
be passed, but Shakespeare' s valuable and irreplaceable creativity will be read, lived,
preserved by the world proudly.

Wars and revolutions has dramatically changed the lives of human beings since the earth was created,
so has World War II. In England postwar period caused to rise the movement of Angry Young Men.
Angry Young Men became the voice of desperate generation of England. Kingsley Amis, John Osborne,
Arnold Wesker and John Braine can be counted as the pioneers of this movement. In this essay, it is aimed
to examine the postwar situation and its effetcs in England by giving the biography of John Osborne who
played a far-reaching role in pushing many young dramatists along sociopolitical paths by his play Look
Back in Anger.
Keywords: Angry Young Men, John Osborne, Look Back in Anger.

Society is a human community, usually with a relatively fixed territorial location,
sharing a common culture and common activities. There is cultural and institutional
interdependence between members of the society and they are, to some extent, from
other communities and groups
. Sharing a common culture and common activities so-
ciety can be easily affected and changed by the convulsive events such as world wars
and revolutions. After World War II all European countries included England faced
innumerable predicaments and shifts. Labour Party which governed England during the

1950s did not meet peoples demands. Having lost the domination on its colonies such
as India and Burma inequality, unemployment, class consiousness still existed in their
governing period. All these conditions which can be seen as predicament for society
caused desperation, unwillingness on new generations minds which led them dissa-
tisfaction. The plans for postwar secondary education in Britain aimed to remove the
inequalities which remained in the system. The proportion of 'free places' at grammar
schools in England and Wales increased from almost a third to almost half between
1913 and 1937. However, when poorer children were offered free places, parents often
had to turn them down owing to the extra costs involved
. The Education Act which
was aimed to bring equality for lower class people did not work out. Graduated from
universities the youth was unemployed.
Angry young men movement
In this gloomy atmosphere British theatre became a mirror reflecting sociopolitical
events and changes which means societys attraction on sociopolitical events got more
deeper than before because after postwar period a new sociocultural movement was
born in England Angry Young Men. It was based on the disaffection and anger that
a group of writers felt towards society. John Osborne, Arnold Wesker, John Braine,
Kingsley Amis were the pioneers of the Angry Young Men. One could say that John
Osbornes play Look Back in Anger first produced in 1956 started the Anger move-
ment. Both the Angries and their protagonists exhibited the need to voice the ills of
society, to tell the truth at all costs. Angry Young Men became the voice of dissappointed
generation and minority who was aware of hypocrisy of the society. Their main cha-
racters shared really similar characteristics as rebelliousness, criticism and contempt
towards the society in which they lived and also they describe the monotony, mediocrity
and injustice of their lives.
John Osborne
The man who turned anger into art ,John Osborne, changed the face of British
Theatre. His play Look Back in Anger was the turning point in postwar British theatre.
He was an 'Angry Young Man' who spent his happiest years in Shropshire
. John James
Osborne was born in London, England in 1929 to Thomas Osborne, an advertisement
writer, and Nellie Beatrice, a barmaid. His father died in 1941, leaving Osborne an insu-
rance settlement which he used to finance a boarding school education at Belmont Col-
lege in Devon. Osborne was expelled after only a few years for striking the headmaster.
After coming back home, Osborne worked several jobs before he found a niche in
the theatre. He began working with Anthony Creighton's provincial touring company
where he was a stage hand, actor, and writer. Look Back in Anger was written in a short
period and was finally accepted by George Devine for production with his failing Royal
Court Theatre. Both Osborne and the Royal Court Theatre were struggling to survive
financially and both saw the production of Look Back in Anger as a risk. After opening
night, the play received mixed reviews, however, Osborne was soon pronounced to be
one of the most promising young playwright's in British theatre.

In the late 1950s, Osborne was persuaded by Lawrence Olivier, the famous actor,
about writing a play for him. Osborne wrote The Entertainer, a play that metaphorically
explores the decline of the British Empire through the eyes of a failing music hall.
Olivier played the lead role in the production and the play received critical praise. Os-
borne would continue to write for the stage through the 1960s. He produced a number of
critical and commercially successful works including Luther, a play based on the life
of Martin Luther. In 1963, Osborne won an Academy Award for his screen adaptation
of Tom Jones.
Osborne continued to work in the artistic and entertainment worlds through the
1970s and 80s. He wrote plays, but also turned into writing screenplays, television
adaptations, and autobiography. Osborne made several appearances as an actor during
this period. He starred in several popular Hollywood films including Get Carter and
Flash Gordon. Later in life, he received considerable awards for his work including a
Lifetime Achievement Award from the Writer's Guild in Britain. Osborne died at the
age of 65 from complications related to diabetes.
To sum up, before Osborne arrived on the theatrical scene, the British theatre just
composed of melodramas and middle class drawing-room comedies. But in 1956, Os-
borne's play Look Back in Anger shocked audiences and "wiped the smugness off the
frivolous face of English theatre," as John Lahr put it in a New York Times Book Review
article. Osborne's protagonist, Jimmy Porter, caught the angry and rebellious nature of
the postwar generation, a dispossessed people who were clearly unhappy with things
as they were in the decades following World War II. Jimmy Porter came to represent
an entire generation of Angry Young Men. Look Back in Anger established Osborne,
the struggling actor and playwright, as a leading writer for theatre, television and film.
It also had a profound effect on British culture. The play threw cold water in the face
of a sleepy popular culture. All manner of writers, actors, artists, and musicians (inclu-
ding the Beatles) soon reflected the influence of Osborne's Angry Young Man.

West. from which side, which point of view to analyze West? Lets see ,not impressive side-
technology for nowadays, look to the literature from the past bevel. Lived in Victorian and Elizabethan
period, carrying the West conception form and thoughts of his epoch, without any restrictions but some-
times as they are, sometimes with exaggerating to the literature was eminent writer Shakespeare. From
centuries he was recalled, proved himself and precious works which he left behind, have difficulties in
understanding but stating sayings, imagery beauty are inestimable in his work. So, I wont to cite you about
the person who had such kind of values.
Key words: Eminent Shakespeare ,West conception form ,difficult language ,personal precious.

One of eminent writers of worlds literature , who was recalled mostly with his
name, who tried to quote West mans sentiment to the humanity accurately was forceful
pen user Shakespeare. Born in England, was neither a genius nor a superman with
special powers. Just born in the village but actually started robust words and could use
precious thoughts. He was an important nominee of words literature. In his time the
globe was under the pressure of his writings. Saying efficiency, we mean that, actually
W. Shakespeare indicated such kind of points that life truths could find like their
shadows in the literature. And this was the most striking feature of Shakespeare .(1)
The English language has changed a great deal over the last few hundred years,
and it is still changing like other languages. Several words in use during those periods
either have different meanings today or have been nearly forgotten. Also Elizabethan
dialect differs slightly from Modern English, but the principles are generally the same.
On those times there were no dictionaries. Although especially grammar issues organized
but they would not appear until the 1700 s. So Shakespeare as a youth would have no
more systematically studied his own language. But he was well educated conversa-
tionalist in the language from inside . Shakespeare could use words where they fitted.
Maybe that is why Shakespeare is as relevant today as he was in his own time? The best
answer for this question is that: From my point of view he is relevant and important
person for all ages because people die, but words never die. If he left memorable and
unforgettable sayings behind himself, so he would never die. But actually for many
people today, reading Shakespeares language is a problem but it is a problem that can
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
be solved. 2 In Shakespeares works there are many wordplay, also compressions,
omissions that readers must recognize and understand. But for this we-Modern readers
need to develop the skills for understanding this writing. But really in Shakespeares
works there are many unusual sentence structures which can bored reader from beginning
and may have trouble with Shakespeares words. Because most of his immense voca-
bulary is still in use, but a few of his words are not, worse, some of them now have
meaning quite different from they were in 16 and 17 centuries. Thats why as a litera-
ture learner I can say that, if readers of Shakespeare want understand him it is essential
Solving Shakespeares puzzle in his thoughts and get the message behind his words.
In the words of Louis Marder: Shakespeare was so facile in employing words that he
was able to use over 7.000 of them-more than occur in the whole King James version
of the Bible-only once and never again From my point of view, it is evidence that
Shakespeare was master of his work. As we said before, in Shakespeares plays we can
face with sentences which very difficult to understand. For ex: Wherefore dost than
leave? Like a foreign language, yes? That is why we must know all words in sentences
otherwise we cant solve puzzle. Shakespeare used in his works certain words which
created as if William Shakespeares Glossary. Today we can find them from different
sources. For ex: especially from internet or from library. Lets see some examples
Shakespeares diction.

bewray reveal ( King Lear )

wot know (Romeo and Juliet)
thee you When will I see thee next?
thou you Thou art a villain
thy your Thy name is more hateful than thy face
hark listen Hark to the owl(3)
In the theatre sometimes most of these difficulties are solved for us by actors who
study the language and articulate it for us so that the essential meaning is heard or,
when combined with stage action, is at least felt. When reading on ones own, one must
do what each actor does; go over the lines until the puzzles are solved and the characters
speak in words and phrases that are, suddenly, rewarding and wonderfully memorable.
Also the New Folger Library Shakespeare editions of Shakespeares plays and poems
offer readers assistance in understanding Shakespeares language with notes and images
placed beside the play text.
They also include essays on how Shakespeare uses language in each work. Also
Shakespeare is known for his prolific use of figurative language. He used many metaphor,
smile, personification, alliteration and allusion. Thats why for Shakespeares readers
it is hard to get the message behind his words. Below are examples where Shakespeare,
used these literature devices.
My bounty is as boundless as the sea,
My love as deep, the more I give to thee,
The More I have, for both are infinite.
(Romeo and Juliet) (4)
So, Shakespeare was famous man of letters over the world. But he gained with
friends more enemies, too. Even some of his enemies claimed that Shakespeare didnt
exist or his works, plays were written by different unknown people. 5 As we said about
Shakespeare there are different points of view. Plus, in another claim they said Shakespeare
gave some religion points in his works. Last but not least, I think Shakespeare was a
great writer. He could use his world outlook in better form. Also maybe sometimes he
was able to appear a cultural shock with his writings but Shakespeares plays inesti-
mable of course. Thats why we say Shakespeare as relevant for today as he was in his
time. 6

the book and their brightness have survived four hundred years until today. And, the common similarities
of the characters are crimes and the revenge sense to enemy. All these features, characteristic of the macabre
killings and revenge sense is shown the writers famous tragedy by the character of Hamlet. The topic of
the tragedy was created Hamlets entering to Denmark from Germany where he got University education,
knowing his fathers enemy by his fathers ghost and revenge on his uncle.
Key words: hamlet, revenge, human nature.

Richard Knolless (?1550-1610) The General History of the Turks (1603) was much appreciated
by Samuel Johnson, the most eminent Literary figure of the XVIII century. He took from the history of
the Turks the plot for his verse tragedy Irene. They say that Samuel Johnson was disappointed by the
plays mixed reception. The oriental colouring much affected the XIX century Romanticists, especially
the inspiration of the Oriental history made the poets write their some works on that theme.
So it was a magnetic theme that appeared in Medieval Ages and further on periods of Literature.
The article presents the characteristic elements of Oriental conception that appeared through-out
various periods of English culture and literature.
Key words: Orientalism, oriental colouring, Medieval Literature, complex identities, the history of

The work deals with the Ottoman poetry in British criticism based on some serious researches. It is
important to note that study of Ottoman poetry within the frame of British orientalism is nearly a profound
view to the history of Ottoman Literature. The ideas of some critics such as, Sir Philip Sidney and George
Puttenham on Ottoman poetry are analyzed and reviewed in the report. E.J. Gibb noted in the preface of
his research A History of Ottoman Poetry that he had endeavoured to trace the successive phases through
which Ottoman poetry has passed, to discover the influences which have brought these about, and in this
way to present as it were a panorama of the rise and progress of this poetry. So we can say that research
of Ottoman poetry which had been carried by E.J. Gibb is of great value. The author of the article concerning
the conclusion states that the Turks had no literature was a shock for some scholars. So the author of the
article presents his commentaries on Ottoman poetry which was mainly composed in mesnevi form.
Key words: Ottoman poetry, British criticism, Turkey, orientalist.

As antique Greek poetry and the works by Greek philosophers as well as poems
of Ottoman and of an ancient East literature had a vast influence on English literature
and scientific circles. So in British criticism different investigations have been made
on Ottoman poetry and scientific explanations have been rendered in English.
While thinking about investigation of Ottoman poetry, we feel under obligation of
mentioning the names of critics, Sir Philip Sidney (1554-1586) and George Puttenham
(?1529-1591) who wrote some sharp statements on poetry problems. Those critics faced
with the decline in the English poetry. The Arte of English Poesie by Puttenham

(1589) and The Defence of Poesie(1595) by Sidney
attracts attentions as the charac-
teristic of arguments and trials to return back to poetic traditions of the ancient English
poetry. From this point of view it is important to mention the logical scientific discourses
of Sidney against those are of the opinion that poetry is unnecessary. He wrote:
neither Phylosopher nor Histoririographer could at the first have entered into the gates
of popular judgements, if they had not taken a great Passport of Poetry, which in all
Nations at this day, where learning florisheth not, is plaine to be seene, in all which they
have some feeling of Poetry.

After such kind of judgments Philip Sidney remind the way that the poetry was
created and developed in Turkey. H noted: ... in benighted Turkey besides their lawe
giving Divines they have no other Writers but Poets.

It is not coincidence that Philip Sidney who created the first scientific work of cri-
ticism in the English literature mentioned such kind of judgments. The extraordinary
poetic samples of literature touched the cords of hearts of people not only in Turkey
but also in other parts of the world.
Prof. Hamid Arasl noted one sided characteristic of works written about Turkic
as well as Eastern poets by European orientalists: Generally European orientalists
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
couldnt go beyond regulating scientific information about oriental poets. Instead of
giving scientific analysis of the poets they were under impacts of memoirs.

Naturally the demands of considerations, praise and writing peculiar for that period
by Indian, Persian and Turk memoirs experts reveal the limitations and one sidedness
in their memoirs. And Western Europe scholars and literary figures had to follow the
same way and they avoided presenting detailed analysis.

Some people thinks that fate is something that directs their life and they can do nothing to change it
because the order of things is determined beforehand. That`s why we have to live what we are meant to
have. Despite this, others believe that coincidence is the only explanation for the way their lives turn out.
Great English novelist Thomas Hardy portrays chance and coincidence as having very significant role in
Tess of the d`Urbervilles. In this novel three such coincidences had a great impact on Tess`s future. The
first being that Tess Durbeyfield`s father knew that their family came from the oldest and the wealthiest
family in England. Another one occurs when Tess slips a letter of confession underneath both her lover`s
door and the carpet which is resulted with him losing sight of it. The last coincidence would be the death
of Tess`s father which leaves the whole family in a state of disappointment, and after this Tess had to step
up and take care of the family. Each of these coincidences were the beginning of Tess`s further misfortune
and changed her life. Of course, she had not chosen this fate, this fate had chosen her.
Key words: coincidence, consequence, fate, change.

Tess Durbeyfield and her family which belonged to a middle class lived in the town
of Marlott in a state of destitution. Her father`s, John Durbeyfield`s rank was above the
farm laborers. He does not put much interest in working and instead spends time drinking.
One evening his meeting a man upon returning to his home was the first coincidence
in Tess`s life. This man named Parson Tringham makes him aware about the fact that
the Durbeyfield family is the lineal representative of the ancient and knightly family
of the d`Urbervilles who came from Normandy with William the Conqueror.(1,18)
This news suddenly changes Durbeyfield`s view on his family`s lifestyle and decides
that they should be living as their noble ancestors once did. If all the things had gone
as they planned, they should have lived in prosperity and wealth. But the events tended
to other direction.
Being aware of this news John`s wife Joan Durbeyfield says that a man by the name
of d`Urberville lives not far from their home and considers that he might be able to help
them in their hard times. After the death of their only horse, the Durbeyfield family
have to do something to earn for living, but Mr. Durbeyfield refuses to sell the horse
due to his newfound d` Urberville pride. Because this knightly family never sold their
chargers for cat`s meat. (1,45) So, the family decides to send their eldest daughter,
Tess to see if the d` Urberville family would help them, with hopes of Tess marrying
a gentleman and restoring their family`s status. This egoist decision of sending Tess to
the d`Urberville would be the change in her life that would lead to so many other events
for her and would be the beginning of her life`s destruction. Had Tess not been sent to
the d`Urberville home, she would not have met Alec nor would bore his child and her
life would have been completely different.
With hopes of finding work at a diary called Talbothay`s Tess left her birthplace
of Marlott after her son`s death. The people there was unaware of her past because he
told nothing to them about it. After much time, Tess would accept the marriage proposal
of a co-worker named Angel Clare, who was in love with her. She decides to tell him
everything about herself to Angel before getting married him. But she couldn`t tell it
face to face that is why she sat down and wrote a succinct narrative of those events and
put it into an envelope. Despite this letter, Tess`s confession did not reach Angel Clare.
By chance, her letter was not only slipped underneath his door, but also slipped under-
neath his carpet, where he could not see it. Tess did not discover this until her wedding
day, when she decided to tear up the letter and not let him know of her past.
Tess`s life again had been changed by another coincidence. Writing a letter and
putting it under Angel`s door, Tess felt much ease knowing that he would know all of
her past. Now she hoped that despite of every disaster happened to her Angel would
still love her as much as he did before.
Little after their marriage, Tess confesses to Angel of her past. Angel goes to Brasil
to find land where he might be able to start a farm and also think about Tess`s confession
and decide which step to take next. Soon after Angel`s leaving, she decides to leave
Marlott and find work. But due to the time of year, she was forced to go to Flintcomb-
Ash, where she works to death.Tess struggles through the work and finds the courage

to ask her father-in law for help because of bad condition and lack of money. All this
time there was not any information of Angel, even he did not write any letter to her.
On her way back to the farm, Tess mets Alec who persues her for some time trying to
persuade her in his love. Remember, my lady, I was your master once! I will be your
master again. If you are any man`s wife you are mine! (2) The main coincidence is
that during the time d`Urberville is pursuing her, Tess`s mother becomes ill and her
father soon dies.
After the death of Tess`s father, the Durbeyfield family loses its the only shelter.
So, D`Urberville gets great opportunity to move in on Tess. He convinced Tess that
Angel would never come back and by this way he had Tess to get marry him. He then
gives her family a home and money, and he himself lives with them. All of these events
happens just in time because he does return, but it is too late and Tess had already
married.This coincidence of Tess`s father dying at just the right moment for Alec to
marry her and Angel returning only a little after, leads to the murder of Alec. If her
father had not died and Angel had not returned at just the right moment, she would not
have killed Alec and would not have been sentenced to an execution for her crimes.
All of these coincidences had a great impact on Tess`s life and changed it drama-
tically. Each event that occurred by chance left Tess in a predicament where she was
compelled to take control and do something to improve the situation.

In the article we endeavored to reveal style diversity in new Azerbaijani prose. It is undeniable that
the prose of 60s or a new prose literature is recorded in our history as a new stage not only for its subject,
content, heroes, characters, but also for its genre-style quest diversity. Thereby, one of the facts drawing
attention in exploration of new prose is its style quantity. Certainly, it is not reasonless. Changing atoms-
phere and environment required new approach and style. Although new Azerbaijani prose styles have passed
a rather short period, their development is profoundly rich as far as context is concerned. New prose rep-
resentatives apply mostly traditions of the previous centuries writers (J. Mammadguluzada, A. Hagver-
diyev etc). Creative styles of new prose are as follows: intellectual style, analytic style, psychological style,
dramatic style, lyric-psychological style, publicist style. Usage of psychological analysis as a manifestation
form of style happens to be one of the most important incentives familiarizing us with the prose of 60s.
Though, we consider that the usage of psychological analysis in Azerbaijani literature is not in appropriate
Key words: style, psychological analysis, Azerbaijani prose.

James Joyce was an Irish novelist and poet. Joyces major works are the short-story collection Dub-
liners (1914); novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegans Wake (1932). But
at the top of his creative activity stands his best known work Ulysses (1922), which the episodes of ancient
Greek writers Homers Odyssey are paralleled with the contrasting literary styles. With the appearance
of the Ulysses (also T.S Eliots poem The Waste Land) 1922 was a key year in the history of English
language literary modernism. Stream of consciousness technique, careful structuring, and experimental
prose-full of puns, parodies and allusion, as well as its characterization and broad humor, made this book
a highly regarded novel in the modernist grade. In 1988 the Modern literary, ranked Ulysses first on its
list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20
Key words: James Joyce, Ulysses, Homers Odyssey, modernist grade.

James Joyce Augustine Aloysius was an Irish novelist and poet, regarded to be one
of the most effective and influential writers in modernist grade of the early 20
He was born to a middle class family in Dublin, where he studied as a student at
the Jesuit schools Clongowes and Belvedere, then at University College Dublin. From
his early ages, Joyce emigrated to the different parts of Europe, lived in Trieste, Paris
and Zurich. Though Joyces fictional creative activity was not beyond Dublin, most of
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
his characters resemble family members, enemies, friends from there. As he claimed:
For myself, I always write about Dublin, because if I can get to the heart of Dublin I
can get to the heart of all cities of the world. (Elman,p505.Citing power, From an Old
Waterford House(London,n.d)p-63-64)
Joyces major works are the short- story collection Dubliners (1914); novels A
Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Finnegans Wake (1932).But at the
top of his creative activity stands his best known work Ulysses (1922), which the
episodes of ancient Greek writers-Homers Odyssey are paralleled with the contras-
ting literary styles. With the appearance of the Ulysses (also T.S Eliots poem The
Waste Land) 1922 was a key year in the history of English language-literary moder-
nism. In Ulysses, Joyce employs stream of consciousness which is the base of moder-
nism according Sigmund Freud.
Joyce also used in this novel parody, jokes, and virtually other literary technique
to present his characters. The action of the novel, which takes place in a single day, 16
June 1904, sets the characters and incidents of the Odyssey of Homer in modern Dublin.
And Joyce presented Homers characters Odysseus, Penelope and Telemachus in the
image of Leopold Bloom, his wife Molly Bloom and Stephan Dedalus, parodically
contracted with their lofty models. In this novel we can come across various areas of
Dublin life. Ulysses is a book of privacies and subjectivities, a remarkable number of
its scenes are set in public space-library, museum, bar, cemetery, and, most of all, the
street ( classics). So, the book is
also detailed study of the city. Joyce said that if Dublin were to be destroyed, in some
catastrophe it would be rebuilt, brick by brick, using his work as a model.
The book consists 18 chapters, each covering about one hour of the day, beginning
around 8a.m and ending some time after 2a.m the following morning. But at first glance
much of the book may appear unstructured and chaotic. Joyce once said that he had put
in so many puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what
I meant which would earn the novel immortality. (Hefferman, James A.W. (2011)
Joyces Ulysses Chantilly,VA.The teaching company)Each chapter employs its own
literary style and parodies a specific episode in Homers Odyssey.
The book is also unusual in the history of modernism for its suggestion that there
need be no conflict between bohemian and bourgeois. At its climax the ad-canvasser
Bloom invites the poet Dedalus home with him for conversation and cocoa. In recording
the dailiest day possible, Joyce teaches us much about the world: how to cope with
grief and loss; how to tell a joke and how not to tell a joke; how to be frank about death
in the age of its denial; how to walk and think at the same time; how to purge sex of
possessiveness; how the way people eat food can tell us who they really are. (Kebard
Declan (2009-06-16)Ulysses modernisms most sociable masterpieceLondon Guar- june 28,2011)
Before Joyce, no writer of fiction had so foregrounded the process of thinking. The
soliloquists of Shakespeare and the nineteenth-century novel were aristocrats conside-

ring ultimate questions of death or suicide. Joyce offers the stream-of-consciousness
of an ordinary citizen as prelude to nothing more portentous than the drinking of a cup
of tea.(Kebard Declan(2009-06-16)Ulysses modernisms most sociable masterpiece
London june 28,2011).
Stream of consciousness technique, careful structuring, and experimental prose-full
of puns, parodies and allusion, as well as its characterization and broad humor, made
this book a highly regarded novel in the modernist grade. In 1988 the Modern literary,

At the end I want to finish by Joyces own words: "If Ulysses isn't fit to read."
replied its author, "then life isn't fit to live". But he never took his extraordinary celeb-
ration of the ordinary over-seriously. When a fan asked to kiss the hand that wrote
Ulysses, Joyce laughed and said "no-that hand has done a lot of other things as well".

Henry David Thoreau says: Dreams are the touchstones of our character. The American Dream is
one of the most familiar and resonant phrases in American national lexicon, so familiar that they seldom
pause to ask its origin, its history, or what it actually means. The American Dream, or rather the several
American Dreams have both reflected and shaped American identity from the Pilgrims to the present. The
United States, unlike most other nations, defines itself not on the facts of blood, religion, language, geog-
raphy, or shared history, but on a set of ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence. The American
dream is conceived of in terms of success and of material success in particular; getting rich quick is what
it is all about. It was to go to the WEST and become a millionaire. All American literature- like all of
American life- it often about the American dream and Scott Fitzgerald has been identified with the American
dream. It was his subject of matter and it was a subject that had come to fascinate readers everywhere. His
masterpiece The Great Gatsby is an exploration of the American dream as it exists in a corrupt period and it
is an attempt to determine that concealed boundary that divides the reality from the illusions.
Key words: American dream, nation, American life, literature.

Since the end of the Second World War the United States of America has been the
most powerful country in the world. American power has included its cultural power,
too. Writing or talking about America means invoking the American Dream, which
remains a major element of the national identity. People believed that American dream
was a part of American history, culture and language so they said: America was born
out of a dream. Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness- this is the soul and heart
of American dream.
The concept of American dream could enter the national lexicon during the time
of political and cultural upheaval. The true origin of the phrase was first mentioned in
1931, by a historian James Truslow Adams in his book The Epic of America. In the
Preface, when Adams refers to the American dream of a better richer and happier life,
adding that dream or hope has been present from the start the phrase was first time
used. In the Epilogue, Adams goes into more detail and broadens the scope of the Ame-
rican dream concept, explaining that the most distinctive gift that America has made
to the world is the American dream. It is such a dream of a land where life should be
better, richer and fuller for every man, with opportunity for each according to his ability
or achievement.
All American literature - like all of American life - it often about the American
Dream and Scott Fitzgerald has been identified with the American dream. It was his
subject of matter and it was a subject that had come to fascinate readers. Fitzgeralds
novels have been based o a concept of class. He is the first American writer seems to
have discovered that such a thing as American class really existed.
Who wants really to understand it, one has to dig into the fresh insides. On the
surface of The Great Gatsby Fitzgerald portrays a romantic love between a man and a
woman, but inside the real meaning is much deeper. Fitzgerald depicts the 1920s as a
time of decay social and moral values, evidence of this is the greed and the pursuit of
pleasure. Jay Gatsbys constant parties epitomized the corruption of the American Dream
as the desire for money and worldly pleasures overshadowed the true values of the
American Dream.
The Great Gatsby is an exploration of the American dream as it exists in a corrupt
period, and it attempted to determine boundaries between the reality and illusion. The
illusion seems more real than the reality itself. Embodied all characters in novel, they
threaten to invade the whole of the picture. Here the reality is a thing of the spirit, a
faith in the half-glimpsed, but hardly understood, possibilities in life, the reality is un-
defined to itself. It is inarticulate and frustrated. Nick Carraway, Gatsbys friend and
also, Fitzgeralds narrator, says of Gatsby:
Through all he said, even through his appalling sentimentality, it was reminded
of something-an exclusive rhythm, a fragment of lost words, that I had heard somewhere
a long time ago. For a moment a phrase tried to take shape in my mouth and my lips
parted like a dumb mans, as though there was more struggling upon them than a wisp
of startled air. But they made no sound and what I had almost remembered was incom-
municable forever. (F. Scott Fitzgerald Great Gatsby, pg.89)

On the last page of the novel Nick compares the green breast of the new world
to the green light at the end of Daisys dock. The green breast of the world represents
the dreams of the immigrants that came to the new world seeking religious freedom,
opportunity, love, and democracy, along the way instilling universal family values. As
they settled with these goals in mind, they strived and created what is America today.
Gatsby realized that the illusion was there-there where Tom and Daisy, and generations
of small-minded, ruthless Americans had found it-in the dreamless. After this recog-
nition, Gatsbys death is only a symbolic formality, for the world into which his mere
body had been born rejected the gift he had been created to embody-the traditional dream
from which alone it could awaken into life. As the novel closes, the experience of Gatsby
and his broken dream explicitly becomes the focus of that historic dream for which he
stands. Nick Carraway is speaking:
Most of the big shore places were closed now and there were hardly any lights
except the shadowy, moving glow of a ferryboat across the Sound. And as the moon rose
higher the essential houses began to melt away until gradually I became aware of the
old island here that flowered once for Dutch sailors eyes- a fresh , green breast of the
new world. Its vanished trees, the trees that had made way for Gatsbys house, had once
pandered in whispers to the last greatest of all human dreams... (F. Scott Fitzgerald
Great Gatsby, pg.330)
Gatsby fades into the past forever to take his place with the Dutch sailors who
had chosen their moment in time so much more happily than he.

During the novels journey towards modernity in English literature, Charles Dickens was the main
figure in the Victorian Period who responded to the changes taking place in contemporary society through
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
realistic point of view with his brilliant novels. Great Expectations is Charles Dickens thirteens novel,
one of the greatest examples that he gifted to the world fiction. In this work, Dickens confronted an orphan
boy, Pip, who could not find himself in society, was absorbed with hopes that the future would be as he
wanted, and believed in possibility of getting anything, with the real face of life; throughout the novel, Pip
steps towards to see the world of truth, to perceive the people around him and the life itself by dint of his
dashed hopes and ruined expectations.
Edgar Johnson, perhaps, the greatest Dickens biographer of our times, called Great Expectations
(barring the changed ending, which he thought a flaw) the most perfectly constructed and perfectly written
of all Dickenss works.

Key words: Charles Dickens, Victorian Period, Pip, expectation, hope, illusion, life, identity, society.

Charles Dickens is known as a master of the serialized novel; Great Expectations
as a weekly serial appeared in All the Year Round from December 1, 1860 to August
3, 1861. This serial periodical, like others, both was determined and to some extent
controlled by the readers response and demand; and with it the writer hit the financial
rescue for his periodical.
Charles Dickens was drawn especially to social justice and to commenting on the
inequalities inherent to Victorian society. While England was growing rich and powerful
in the era of colonialism and the Industrial Revolution, Dickens saw the injustice that
ran rampant among the working and lower classes and saw the people who couldnt
find himself in society in a complexity time of such wealth and run away with the
desperate, fatuous hopes which would ruin their life. Great Expectations is the ironic
title given to the novel in which the Victorian Period is described as a world of expec-
tations and in which Dickens celebrates the human will and capacity to stay alive against
great odds. The autobiographical mode of the novel focused on the development of
the main character, Pip.
The novel opens the presentation of Pip in the graveyard, viewing his family. We
basically grow up with him over the course of 59 chapters. Threatened by the convict,
Magwitch little Pip helps him, towards the end of the novel he appears as Pips bene-
factor in exchange for his goodness. This is one of the main points of the novel, but the
core theme rests on Pips love to Estella, adopted girl by the rich, old lady Miss Havisham
who influences greatly his life. After their first meeting in Miss Havishams house -
Satis House, the world of expectations begins for Pip.
Dickens laid out three chronological episodes of the novel : the first takes us through
Pips childhood and early youth to the moment when he leaves to discover where his
newly announced Expectations will bring him. The second show the working out of
these Expectations to the moment of their shattering by the arrival of Magwitch. The
last leads Pip and Magwitch through struggle and catastrophe and so to deatch in Mag-
witchs case and near-death in Pips. Expectations are demolished, and past and future
are at last annealed in a sober, responsible present.

Wishing to be loved, at least to be noticed by Estella, little Pip devotes his time to
learning how to become uncommon; in his new self-absorption he begins to ignore
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2

everything, everybody important around him; he is now discontented with his life, way
of living, begins to hope something better. When it is revealed that Pip has inherited a
large sum of money from an anonymous benefactor on the condition that he moves to
London to become a gentleman. He expects Estella to be affected by his becoming a
gentleman and new life with new expectations will wait him
But soon Pip considers himself lost even in his most familiar surroundings, because
he could not define his place in community. He realizes that the relation between society
and a person is mutual, it is not just changing your place from one class to another.
Throughout the novel Pip undergoes internal changes that separate him from the ephe-
meral world of great expectations and guides to the eternal world of Truth. For Pip,
the indication of this truth disappointed expectations, comes gradually, for instance,
when he puts on his new suit, when he sees his new home, when he lunches at his first
London restaurant:
We went and had lunch at a celebrated house which I then quite venerated, but
now believe to have been the most abject superstition in Europe.

Pips expectations are not the only illusory ones. So Dickens didnt give such a
title to the novel in vain: almost every character in the story experiences disappointed
hopes from time to time. Those characters in Great Expectations who dream the most,
hope the most, and plan the most are ultimately wounded by their dreams, hopes, and
plans. The first is Miss Havisham, desolated by her elated expectation as she prepares,
dresses for her wedding; then the crushing of Magwitchs hope for freedom; Mrs. Joes
hopes for benefit from Pips connection with Miss Havisham; Biddys hope for lifelong
partnership with Pip; Compeysons plans to catch Magwitch and gain a revenge; Joes
expectation of Pip being a blacksmith and living with him, etc. Likewise, when characters
realize their dreams, they do not find the happiness that they expected, they only find
loneliness and loss. We love what we cannot have and the world of illusions dont give
them what they want, at times there occurs changes, getting entagled by the life they
see the new facets of life. Even the main figure here, Pip discerns that the contours of
his goal have been changing all this while. He learns that the gap between perception
of a little boy and reality is never bridged; life is a world of great expectations and his
expectations, impressions are nothing more than self-deception.
Miss Havisham's intentions towards me, all a mere dream; Estella not designed
for me; I only suffered in Satis House as a convenience, a sting for the greedy relations,
a model with a mechanical heart to practise on when no other practice was at hand;
those were the first smarts I had.
- here Pip comprehends that his greatest dream has
only led him to his suffering and this helps him to grow in life and become a wiser. The
ferocity and strength of his love for Estella in spite of her scorn for him is stunning in
light of the fact that he himself ignores the people who love him most in life. But Joes
and Magwitchs love and Herberts friendship which are not tied to any of his expec-
tations teach him the valuables of life. Pips extreme remorse is obvious, and he looks
back from the assurance of knowledge gained by experience: in the moments of defeat
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
and shame, he accepts that he had been wrong to give up his old happy life for his
Fundamentally, this is a novel of hope, not one of despair. G.K.Chesterton points
out that of all Dickens novels, the only book to which he gave the name Great Ex-
pectations was the only book in which the expectation was never realized
, but he
notes too that the novels best moments chronicle the vacillations of the hero between
the humble life to which he owes everything and the gorgeous life from which he ex-
pects something.

In Pip, Charles Dickens creates a truly evolution of the character from simplicity
through deceptive, ostensible success to an authentic self-reliance. Pip fails as a fortu-
nate orphan but ultimately prevails as a self-made man.
Great Expectations is a tale of illusions and an illusoriness of expectations or
assumptions about what the future holds. The world of Great Expectations heralds
only one thing: suffering which brings experience

I want to explain my topic on Wuthering Heights written by Emily Bronte. This novel is full of love,
hate and revenge. Though there are different themes revenge is the most important theme in this novel.
Why did I choose the name revenge? In real life we can come across to such feelings. I want to show
psychological situations of heroes when they cannot get the things which they want too much. While reading
this novel I understood that an honest man can be known as a cruel person for the peoples attitude around
him. Some group of people overcome their bad feelings and try not to lose their humanism. But I want to
show the other group of people who yield to their weak points and suffer from this. With the help of my
hero I want to show how poor people grow unpleasant feelings in their hearts and how they live with the
aim of revenge and what can be the result of revenge. Even Sigmund Freud told in his psychoanalytical
theory that if someone dreams something much and cannot get it he can be mad. In this novel we see the
result of this dream.
Key words: love, loss, cruelty, hate, revenge and result.

Wuthering Heights tells us about the relationship between Catherine Earnshaw and
an orphan boy Heathcliff, who was adopted by the girls father. At the beginning of the
novel Heathcliff is introduced as a kind and strong man. He barred for difficulties. But
he heard that his lover was going to get married to a rich man Edgar and on that day
he left home for three years. He did not give any information about his life and I think
that it was his first step towards the feeling of cruelty. Catherine married to Edgar not
for love but for her comfortable life that she dreamt. Both Robert McKibben and John
Hagan who wrote about this play prove that neither Catherine nor Heathcliff are guilty
for their wrong actions.
Because in the Victorian period good life and marriage were
the main aim for girls.
Some people who dont get the things they want from life have to accept their troub-
les. Even they want to show themselves as happy people and they put up with their fates.
But people like Heathcliff live with the feeling of revenge. With such feelings he made
his life harder even though he knew that he couldnt get the previous life and love.
While reading this novel a reader can understand the heros sorrow. But when the
hero lives only with the feeling of revenge a reader begin to hate him as in real life. This
feeling even made Heathcliff as a mad man. He is shown as a character of evils.
He got married to the sister of Edgar Linton who was Catherines husband. But,
of course, not for the feelings of love but for the revenge. He wasnt happy himself and
he made some people unhappy who were around him.
Day by day he became cruel and even when he learnt that his lover Catherine got
ill for him, he was happy.
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
When Catherine died the author showed Heathcliffs troubles and he didnt deny
his cruelty. A reader may think that after losing his lover he can change his character
but he had more aims to revenge. He didnt forgive her. His wife Isabella also left him
for this reason.
After some period he got information about his son. He was glad for sons
coming. We can think that he is going to change his life. But it is not so. His aim of
revenge made him so cruel that he used his son to reach his bad aims.
His second aim was to make Catherines daughter-Cathy and his own son Edgar
unhappy. He made them get marry in order to get the inheritance of the Catherines
family. But even when his son became ill he didnt give his love to him. He showed
his bloody feelings. A reader both hates and feels sorry for Heathcliff till the end of the
But Cathy acknowledged her feeling to her cousin Hereton. Hereton also was one
of the heroes who became cruel and careless to Cathys feelings. He explains his indif-
ference with his words to Cathy: When I was in trouble nobody helped me thats why I
hate everyone around me.
In real life we can see such facts. When we have difficulties we expect care from
our close friends, parents or lover.
Unlike Heathcliff, Cathy could get her love. She found a way to get Heretons heart,
they got married and became happy but at the end of the novel the author showed that
Heathcliff who lived with the feeling of revenge was defeated by love.
People like Heathcliff admit their faults when they are alone. Even he said: What
will I get if I revenge. He decided to be free and he stayed alone in his room. Heathcliff
refused to eat or drink something. Finally he died alone in his room. He believed that
he would be together with Catherine after death. We recognize in them tragedy of pas-
sionate natures whom intolerable frustration and loss have stripped them of their hu-
manity (Critic Hagan).
E. Bronte shows that we can solve conflicts with better ways
but not with revenge. Because the result of revenge is hurtful.
At the result, we can see that cruelty and the feeling of revenge give us nothing but
hard life which is far from peace and love. Revenge can take the best things from us.

It was researched the story problem of epic genre of contemporary literature in this article. Especially,
this theme was investigated based on Rafig Tagis latest stories. Because, Rafig Tagis stories draw
attention to its themes and writing style. And his stories informed us about starting a new stage of this
genre. Specific limits and known schemes belonging to Azerbaijani story is not repeated in these
stories. Reality and unreality, allegory, symbol is striking widely in the stories of this author. Rafig
Tagis stories is interesting just because, it is impossible to speak about these prose works with tra-
ditional, standard canons.
Key words: Rafig Tagi, Azerbaijani story, modern period, epic genre.

Great Expectations is one of Dickens's later novels, a work of his artistic maturity. The narrative is
symbolic rather than realistic. It depicts the growth and personal development of an orphan named Pip.
The story is set in England.
The novel was first published in serial form in All the Year Round from 1 December 1860 to August
1861. Two chapters were published every week. The narrator of the story is a Pip who aspired to be a
gentleman and win over the beautiful Estella. People waited anxiously every week for the next episode to
arrive in the newsstands. Great Expectations has been filmed several times.
The main character of the novel is Pip. In the beginning chapters Dickens paints an extremely vivid
picture of Pips childhood. The reader is able to enter Pip's mind and see the world through the eyes of a
child. This is possible because Dickens understood the thoughts and feelings of children and applied this
to Pip's every thought and action when he wrote the novel. The word "pip" itself refers to a seed from a
plant. Seeds need to be nurtured if they are to grow and flourish. In Dickens' view of childhood, he felt
that children have certain needs: guidance in a nurturing home, to be free from emotional and physical
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
abuse, to have a good education, and to be allowed to use their imaginations. He also shows how little
goodness can bring great expectations to little Pip.
Key words: great expectations, pie, Pip, Estella, Miss Havisham, Abel Magwitch.

The story is set in England on Christmas Eve, around 1812. The first part of Great
Expectations is an account of the childhood of, Pip, the main character of the novel.
Pip is an orphan of about six. Hes adopted by his older sister and her husband Joe
Gargery, a blacksmith. But his sister behaves very rudely to him. So Dickens shows just
how alone Pip is, as he sits on the gravestones of his parent in the churchyard. While
coming back Pip encounters an escaped convict. The convict scares Pip into stealing
him a file to grind away his shackles, from the home he shares with his older sister and
her husband Joe Gargery. Frightened, Pip agrees to help the convict and aids him by
giving him food and cutting his handcuffs. Pip encounters another stranger as he heads
back to the marsh. He is frightened again, and runs home without stopping. Pip goes
home, where his sister's husband Joe reads an advertisement about a Miss Havisham
who is a wealthy spinster and lives in the dilapidated Satis House. She asks Pip's Uncle
Pumblechook to find a boy to play with her daughter. The next day, soldiers recapture
two convicts engaged in a fight and return them to the prison ship. Pip is taken to Miss
Havisham's manor. He begins to visit Satis House where meets Estella. Estella is Miss
Havishams adopted daughter. She constantly insults Pip. Miss Havisham hires Pip and
throughout their playtimes he eventually is affected by Estella. Miss Havisham knows
about Estellas love to Pip. So she pays money to Joe Gargery for teaching Pip the
secret of blacksmith. Joe visits Satis House to finish Pip's papers. But Pip is angry at
the current turn of events. He is devastated by Miss Havisham's decision.
Pip works diligently for Joe at the forge, but continually longs to return to Satis
House. Pip is approached by a lawyer, Mr Jaggers, who tells him he is to receive a large
sum of money from an anonymous benefactor and must leave for London immediately
where he is to become a gentleman. Pip fears Estella could never marry a commoner
like him and so that he accepts a large sum of money from an anonymous benefactor
to become a gentleman. Pip assumes the benefactor is Miss Havisham and so that accepts
a large sum of money. Pip prepares to leave for London feeling guilty about his behavior.
Pip and Jaggers travel to London. In London, Pip meets his roommate Mr. Pocket and
gives anonymous assistance to him. Mr. Pocket tells the story of Miss Havisham: she
got engaged but was left at the altar, causing her to stop all the clocks in the house and
never leave the house again. Pip spends the rest of his time in London learning how to
be a gentleman.
Joe visits Pip in London. Pip is informed of Estella's return to Satis House. Pip
believes Miss Havisham to be his benefactress and visits her and Estella. Miss Havisham
tells Pip that he can find Estella at a party at the palace. News arrives concerning Mrs.
Joe. Pip returns home for his sister's funeral. Joe Gaggery wants him to stay but Pip
refuses. So he has promised to Estella to go to the party with her. At the ball, Pip and
Estella dance, and talk about how Pip is now a fine young gentleman. Estella says that
she has no heart, and cannot love. Because Miss Havisham has raised her to break mens

hearts, as revenge for the pain her own broken heart caused her. Pip was merely a boy
for the young Estella to practice on; Miss Havisham delighted in Estellas ability to toy
with his affections. Right before Pip asks Estella to be his girlfriend. Then Estellas
boyfriend Bentley Drummle comes in. Pip, saddened, runs to tell Miss Havisham, only
to find that she approves of Steve. So Miss Havisham is glad that Estella has broken
Pip's heart. Because Miss Havisham thinks that all the men are savage and she is sure
that Estella will triumph.
Pip is visited by his benefactor, and although horrified by the implications, Pip feels
a loyalty to his benefactor. His benefactor is revealed to be Abel Magwitch, the convict
he helped, who was transported to New South Wales where he eventually became
wealthy. There is a warrant for Magwitch's arrest in England and he will be hanged if
he is caught. Magwitch tells the story of his life to Pocket and Pip. While in hiding,
Wemmick says that there is going to take a little time and there are no guarantees. So
Abel is pursued both by the police and by Compeyson. Compeyson was his former
partner in crime and the man who abandoned Miss Havisham at the altar. Compeyson
puts a thousand pounds on his head. Pip learns of Estella's marriage. He confronts Miss
Havisham with Estella's history. Miss Havisham begs for Pips forgiveness. Estella refu-
ses writing to Miss Havisham. Miss Havisham stands too close to the fire which
ignites her dress and she eventually dies from her injuries.
Pip cannot understand why Magwitch gives him a large sum of money. He does
not want to receive this benefactor. Pip wants to know the reason Magwitchs help: Pip.
I was hasty. Compeyson was the second man on the marshes. Abel. I tried killing him
that night. I should have tried harder. Pip. Why? Abel. He owes me. Pip. Were you
partners? Abel. What are you asking for? Pip. I need to know. Abel. Once Pip. And
this once, did you hear of a Miss Havisham of Satis House? Abel. Should I? That turns
your guts, dont it? You think I murdered for that? Ive taken lives for less. Pip. I dont
know what you did to get it. Abel. No, you dont. Pip. Why me? Why do this for me?
Because I stole you a file? I only did that because I was scared. You said youd cut my
throat. Abel. I know what I said? And it werent the file, it was the pie. Pip. Id forgotten
about the pie. Abel. The file you took because you were scared, but... that pie that
was out of goodness.
Herbert and Pip construct a plan for Magwitch's escape. A plan is therefore hatched
for him to flee by boat. It is also revealed that Estella is the daughter of Magwitch and
Mr Jaggers's housemaid, Molly, whom Jaggers defended in a murder charge and who
gave up her daughter to be adopted by Miss Havisham. While attempting to escape,
Magwitch is captured and sent to jail where he dies shortly before his execution. Pip
is about to be arrested for unpaid debts when he falls ill. Joe nurses him back to health
and pays off his debts. Pip decides to return home. On the way to forge Pumblechook
tells him that Estella is a widower and shes coming back. The store ends in two forms.
In the first ending of Great expectation, Estella finally declares her love for Pip and the
narrator states that all the characters lived happily, except Pocket died of Hepatitis B.

The Second Ending of the novel was urged by Bulwer-Lytton, a close friend of
Dickens. This version was originally published in 1861. It includes an extra chapter
(chapter 59) for the revision. In this ending, Pip returns to the forge after eleven years,
instead of the eight, that Dickens had originally intended. Also, the last part of the final
sentence went through further revision as the novel when through subsequent publishings.
The original sentence was:
. . . I saw the shadow of no parting from her but one.
During the proof stage, Dickens dropped the last two words. In 1861, it appeared
in All the Year Round as:
. . . I saw the shadow of no parting from her.
In 1862, the final revision was to the first published edition of the novel. The sen-
tence then read:
. . . I saw no shadow of another parting from her.

The Psychological Approach to literary criticism is very controversial and is easily abused. Some
critics argue that it was already used by Aristotle in his Poetics in the 4
century B.C, when hi defined

tragedy as combining the emotions of pity and terror to produce Catharsis. The compleat gentleman
of the English Renaissance, Sir Philip Sidney, with his statements about the moral effects of poetry, was
psychologizing literature, as were such Romantic poets as Coleridge, Wordsworth, and Shelley with their
theories of the imagination. Every literary critic has been concerned at some time with the psychology of
writing or responding to literature. Psychological approaches consider literature as the expression of per-
sonality, of inner drives of neurosis. It has resulted in an almost exhausting and exhaustive psychological
analysis of character, of symbols and images, of recurrent themes, and the likes. During the twentieth century,
however, psychological criticism has come to be associated with a particular school of thought, the pscho-
analytic theories of Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) and his followers.
Key words: psychoanalytic, conscious and unconscious aspects, psychoanalytic criticism, mental
processes, human psychology.

All psychoanalytic approaches to literature have one thing in common-the critics
begin with a full psychological theory of how and why people behave as they do, a theory
that has been developed by a psychologist, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst outside of
the realm of literature, and the apply this psychological theory as the standard to interpret
and evaluate a literary work. This psychological criticism is one of the approaches to
literature. This approach reflects the effect that modern psychology has had upon on
both literature and literary criticism. Fundamental figures in psychological criticism
include Sigmund Freud. Sigmund Freud was interested in literature because he ac
knowledged the great authors of the past to be intuitive psychologists. According to
Sigmund Freud (A handbook of Critical Approaches to Literature. Wilfred L. Guerin.
2005), psychoanalytic theories changed our nations of human behavior by exploring
new or controversial areas like wish-fulfillment, sexuality, the unconscious and repression
as well as expanding our understanding of how language and symbols operate by de-
monstrating their ability to reflect unconscious fears desires. Psychoanalytic literary
criticism has a number of approaches, but in general, it usually employs one (or more)
of three approaches:
1. the author: the theory is used to analyze the author and his/her life, and the literary
work is seen to supply evidence for this analysis. This is often called psychobio-
2. the characters: the theory is used to analyze one or more of the characters; the
psychological theory becomes a tool that to explain the characters` behavior and
motivations. The more closely the theory seems to apply to the characters, the more
realistic the work appears.
3. the audience: the theory is used to explain the appeal of the work for those who read
it; the work is seen to embody universal human psychological and motivations, to
which the readers respond more or less unconsciously.
A Freudian approach often includes pinpointing the influences of a character`s id
(the instinctual, pleasure seeking part of the mind), superego (the part of the mind that
represses the id` impulses) and ego (the part of that controls but does not repress the id`
impulses, releasing them in a healthy way). According to Jacque Lacan (Modern Cri-
ticism and Theory. David Lodge. 2000.), the symbolic is the point of organization, the
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
point where sexuality is constructed as meaning, where what was heterogeneous, what
was not symbolized, becomes organized, becomes created round these two poles, mas-
culine and not-masculine; feminine. Freudian critics like to point out the sexual impli-
cations of symbols and imagery, since Freud`s believed that all human behavior is
motivated by sexuality. Repressed to an unconscious state, they emerge only in disguised
forms: in dreams, in language (so-called Freudian slips), in creative activity that may
produce art (including literature), and in neurotic behavior. According to Freud, all of
us have repressed wishes and fears; we all have dreams in which repressed feelings and
memories emerge disguised, and thus we are all potential candidates for dream analysis.
One of the unconscious desires most commonly repressed is the childhood wish to
displace the parent of our own sex and take his or her place in the affections of the parent
of the opposite sex. This desire really involves a number of different but related wishes
and fears. Freud referred to the whole complex of feelings by the word oedipal, na-
ming the complex after the Greek tragic hero Oedipus, who unwittingly killed his father
and married his mother. Freud`s theories are either directly or indirectly concerned with
the nature of the unconscious mind. Freud didn`t invent the notion of the unconscious;
other before him had suggested that even the supposedly sane human mind was
conscious and rational only at times, and even then at possibly only at times, and even
then at possibly only one level. But Freud went further, suggesting that the powers
motivating men and women are mainly and normally unconscious. It is important to
point out that among those who relied on Freud`s models were a number of critics who
were poets and novelists as well. Probably because of Freud`s characterization mind
as clamorous if not ill, psychoanalytic criticism written before 1950 tended to psy-
choanalyze the individual author. Poems were read as fantasies that allowed authors to
indulge repressed wishes, to protect themselves from deep-seated anxieties, or both. In
the view of the critics attempting to arrive at more psychological insights into an author
than biographical materials can provide, a work of literature is a fantasy or a dream-
or at least so analogy to daydream or dream that Freudian analysis can help explain the
nature of the mind that produced it. The author`s purpose in writing is to gratify secretly
some forbidden wish. In particular an infantile wish or desire that has been repressed
into the unconscious mind. To discover what the wish is, the psychoanalytic critic
employs many of the terms and procedures developed by Freud to analyze dreams.

Madame Bovary is one of the most important French novels of the 19th century. It is vastly regarded
as Gustave Flaubert's most important work and masterpiece even thought it was his first novel. Madame
Bovary is story of a woman named Emma imprisoned in an unsatisfactory marriage, trying to escape from
her monotonous life with adulterous affairs in search of romanticism. However, Emmas struggles turns
into her own disaster in the end. Since its publication, novel has been read and criticized from different
point of views. When you search, it is possible to find various types of critical essays about Madame
Bovary. Here in this article, the most important thing in a womans life period pregnancy and motherhood
will be dealt with in aspect of Flauberts famous heroine Emma Bovary. Looking at maternal issues from
representations in novel will give a way to understand psychological situation of character during pregnancy.
One of the most famous feminist psychoanalyst Karen Horneys Masculinity complex term and her
pioneer Alfred Adlers Masculine protest term will be applied to read psychoanalytically the maternal
issues in Madame Bovary.
Key words: Madame Bovary, Psychoanalysis, Maternal, Motherhood, Pregnancy, Male-baby desire,
Alfred Adler, Karen Horney, Masculinity complex, Masculine protest.

Madame Bovary is famous also controversial French novel by Gustave Flaubert.
Story takes place in 19
century France and deals with Emma Bovary who trapped in
unsatisfactory marriage, trying to escape her situation through adulterous affairs in search
of romance and passion. In this article, representations of maternal issues in Madame
Bovary are analyzed through Flauberts adulterous heroine Emma Bovary. At the end
of Part 1, the last line of Chapter 9 is When they left Tostes in the month of March,
Madame Bovary was pregnant. (p,58) After this sentence Emmas pregnancy is not
mentioned again until birth. As story is about a woman, one might think Emmas preg-
nancy would be a major event in the book. However Flaubert does not describe situation
as much detailed as he does the dress Emma wore at the ball or wedding scene. (p,25)
Here we get the impression of this is an unwanted pregnancy for Emma. After several
chapters there comes birth scene. Here this time we encounter Emma Bovarys male-
baby desire:
She hoped for a son; he would be strong and dark; she would call him: George;
and this idea of having a male child was like an expected revenge for all her impotence
in the past. A man, at least, is free; he may travel over passions and over countries, over-
come obstacles, taste of the most far-away pleasures. But a woman is always hampered.
In 1910 Alfred Adler, founder of individual psychology, introduced the concept
Masculine Protest.(Nelson, 490) Affected by Adler, first feminist psychoanalyst Ka-
ren Horney wrote a paper on The Flight from Womanhood: The Masculinity Complex
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
in Women, as viewed by Men and Women (1926). According to Adler in many societies,
both men and women place an inferior value on being a woman. Boys are frequently
taught early that being masculine means being courageous, strong, and dominant. The
essence of success for boys is to win, to be powerful, and to be on top. In contrast, girls
often learn to be passive and to accept an inferior position in society. In women it gives
expression to a rejection of their feminine condition.(Adler,1956) Horney did not deny
that women often envy men and are uncomfortable with their feminine role. (Horney,
1967) Rejection of the feminine role is also the consequence of the mothers preference
for son. (Adler, 1926) Emma thinks a man is free but she is not so wishes for baby
boy. When Charles says; "It is a girl!" Emma turns her head away and faints. Emma
Bovarys son desire can be understood in terms of her masculine protest; as she sees
women as constantly held by society she wishes for a son through whom she can fulfil
her own desires. She attempts to resist a role she finds limiting. In Feminine Psychology
Horney also states that as living in a male dominant society woman has the feeling of
being discriminated against so she envy man and try to discard her female role. (Horney,
1967) In 19
century France women could not have freedoms as they have today. Under
the terms of Napoleonic Code Civil, women were regarded as perpetual minors; fathers
and husbands were time-honored guardians of women. (Levasseur,1989) Emma was
victim of suffocating patriarchy that demanded she be no more than wife and mother.
While the men are self-defined; women are defined by their husbands, fathers and sons.
Even the title Madame Bovary show us she is defined by her husbands last name:
Bovary. She is Madame Bovary in the eyes of society. Although the story is about
main character Emma, book does not introduce us Emma firstly. Firstly we learn the
history of Emmas future husband Charles Bovary, after reading the man who will be
the keeper of Emma, we meet our main character. As not have the first words, Emma
Bovary could not have the last ones as book finishes with another male character.
Emma Bovary lacks maternal instincts and also she does not believe she has time
for such trivial things as children. She leaves her daughter Berthe to be raised by the
house help. She sometimes visits her at nurses house but when child is at home she
treats her as a burden. The presence of little Berthe does little to cheer her, for Berthe
is a girl; Emma wanted a boy. Perhaps if Berthe has been born a boy, Emmas romantic
illusions might have carried on a bit longer. As Janette Johnson stated in her research,
Emma Bovary rejected motherhood and never felt the sacred calling that patriarchy
demanded of her. (Johnson, 1983) Although Emma resents motherhood, she pretends
to have the maternal instinct of a good mother to protect her image in society that
surrounds her. She worries about her appearance and what people will think of her. She
wants the outside world including her husband to think she is a good mother. (Brooks
and Watson, 30)

Although Asia and Europe are geographically separated, they have a lot in common. The Huns,
nomadic people in Asia established their empire in Asia BC and then they moved to Europe in the fourth
century and they had their own Empire there. Attila, the king of the Huns between 434 and 453 was the
leading figure of its time and nearly invaded all of the Europe. Although many centuries have passed he
and the Huns are still in the minds of people and this situation affects the people in all spheres including
literature. Beginning from nearly tenth century a lot of legends and manuscripts were written about Attila.
Many of these legends were transmitted from generation to generation orally and then they were written.
Such kinds of legends were generally in German and Hungarian.
In our modern century, especially in the last ten years, a lot of novels have been written both in English
and other languages and some of them have been translated into English. After analyzing these novels it
has been revealed that foreign writers respect Attila and in the face of him to all Huns. In these novels
generally Huns are not presented as barbarians but brave fighters.
Key words: The Huns, Attila, legends, novels, barbarians, historical novels.

The Huns were a group of nomadic people who, appearing from east of the Volga
river migrated into Europe AD 370 and established the vast Hunnic Empire there. (1)
However, before Europe, the original Hunnic Empire was established in 220 BC in Asia
and the founding Emperor was Touman. That Empire was strengthened under the reign
of Moutin, the son of Touman. (2;10). It is a historic fact that the Chinese built the
Great Wall to protect themselves from the attack of the Huns. Under leadership of Bala-
mir some groups of Huns moved to the Eastern Anatolia. This movement is also called
Great Migration of nations in the history. After the death of Balamir, his son (in some
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
sources he is considered to be the grandson of Balamir-N.A) Uldin went over the Car-
pathian mountains and founded the European Hunnic Empire in the place of present
day Hungary. (3) During the reign of Attila (434-453) the Hunnic Empire was in its
strongest time and emperor Attila invaded a lot of places in Europe and attacked several
times to Roma and Constantinople. Peter Heather and Bryan Ward-Perkins agree that
it was Huns who were largely to blame in the fall off Roman Empire. (4; Acknowled
gement). After his sudden death in 453 the Empire lost its former power.
Though 15 centuries have passed since the death of Attila, he and the Empire he
led for a while are always remembered by writers (poets, playwright), scientists and
other people in all pockets of the world, especially in Europe. The Huns and their Empire
are not only the subject of history books but also in literary books. Since the medieval
times a lot of legends, sagas, poems, novels have been written about the Huns. Memories
of the Hunnic conquests were transmitted orally among Germanic peoples and are an
important component in the Old Norse Volsunga Saga and Hervarar saga and in the
Middle High German Nibelungenlied. These stories all portray Migration Period events
from millennium earlier. (5;ix) No doubt Das Nibelungenlied is one of the greatest and
heartbreaking literary works of Middle Ages. It is widely recognized that The Lord of
Rings draws many of its special effects from store house of medieval saga and especially
from medieval Nibelungenlied. (5;x) In this book the name of Attila was shown as
Etsel, the second husband of Krimhild.
In Volsunga saga, Attila (Atli in Norse) defeats the Frankish king Sigebert and Bur-
gundian king Gunthram but is later assassinated by Queen Fredugund, the sister of the
latter, the wife of the former. In this chronicle he is described as a noble and great king.(6)
Afore mentioned literary works are not the only books or documents that speak
about Attila and the Hunnic Empire. Many nations still in Europe claim that they are
successors of Huns. For instance, the Nomanalia of Bulgar Khans which is old, short
manuscript, written in old church Slavic, may indicate that Bulgars have ascended from
Attila. This manuscript contains the names of some early Bulgar rulers and their clans.
(7; 32) There are many similarities between Hunnic and Bulgar cultures and some ar-
cheological facts prove these similarities.
It would be worth mentioning Magyar (Hungarians) legends which may have
contained some elements of historical truths. These legends say that Magyars joined the
people who were descendants of Attila. The city Buda comes from the name of Bleda,
the brother of Attila. (1)
The Hunnic Empire and its famous and powerful king Attila were not only mentioned
in afore said legends and manuscripts but in modern time so many historical novels have
been dedicated to the Huns and Attila. Attila could achieve to include his name in the
list of the most distinguishing leaders of the world. When we analyze the subjects of
the historical novels it becomes clear that modern writers (especially in the USA and
Great Britain) are inclined to choose Ancient Roma, Greek and the Huns as a topic for
their novels.

According to Encyclopedia Britannica, a historical novel is a novel that has as its
setting a usually significant period of history and that attempts to convey the spirit,
manners, and social conditions of a past age with realistic detail and fidelity (which is
in some cases only apparent fidelity) to historical fact. The work may deal with actual
historical personages...or it may contain a mixture of fictional and historical characters.

From what is said, it becomes obvious that when writers write historical novels they
refer to historical notes of different historians. Unfortunately, a variety of opinions, some
of which are negative, have been written about the Huns and their leader Attila as well.
Jordanes, a Goth writing in Italy in 551, a century after the collapse of the Hunnic Em-
pire, describes the Huns as a "savage race, which dwelt at first in the swamps, a stunted,
foul and puny tribe, scarcely human, and having no language save one which bore but
slight resemblance to human speech."
But of course not all historians and researchers
had negative opinion about Huns and Attila. For example, Otto Maenchen-Helfen, who
spent great majority of his time investigating Huns were of positive opinions about
Huns. As an answer to claims by Thomson who tried to make Huns seem barbaric by
stating that they used primitive bone tipped arrowheads Otto Maenchen-Helfen wrote:
Had the Huns been unable to forge their swords and cast their arrow-heads, they never
could have crossed the Don. The idea that the Hun horsemen fought their way to the
walls of Constantinople and to the Marne with bartered and captured swords is absurd
The examples from different historians reveal the fact that the opinions and submission
of facts vary. Peter Heathrow, Bryan Ward-Perkins, PeterJ.Heather, E.A. Thomson,
Micheal Bobcock, Wess Roberts are among those who wrote historical materials about
the Huns and Attila. Basing on these facts and books writers of different countries
produced different novels about Attila.
While analyzing the dates of novels we see that this subject was not in the center
of attention for a short of period but still a lot of writers address this subject. It must
also be emphasized that different countries citizens wrote and have written on this topic.
Hungarian writer and journalist Geza Gardoniy wrote his famous novel slave of the
Huns in 1901. Later, we can see that Canadian writer and journalist Thomas B. Costain
wrote his novel about Attila which is called The darkness and the dawn in 1959. The
figures show that in the last ten years several writers turned their attentions again to that
subject. The following novels were written in that period: Attila: barbarians love story
by Peter Hargitai (2003), Attila: The Scourge of God by Ross Laidlow (2004), The
Scourge of God by William Dietrich (2006), The Death of Attila by Cecelia Holland
(2008), The Sword of Attila: A Novel of the Last Years of Rome by Micheal Curtis
Ford (2008). (8) Special attention must be given to William Napier who wrote trilogy
about Attila-Attila (2005), Attila, the gathering of storm (2007) and Attila-Judge-
ment (2008). In these novels, generally Attila and the Huns are introduced as positive
characters and as well as historical heroes, imaginative characters are spoken about. In
William Napiers trilogy, Attilas life is thrown light beginning with his hostage in
Roman Empire until his death. After his novels had been published The Times wrote: If
you think you dont like historical fiction, you havent read William Napier
. Another
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
point that attracts attention is that generally all authors used the same sources for their
novels. Instead of showing Attila and his people as barbarians, they referred to historical
facts and created very positive brave heroes.
Besides in the English language, there are samples of the novels written about Attila
in different languages too. German novelist and historian wrote his famous novel Attila,
Konig der Hunnen in 1998.
All these facts about the ancient legends, manuscripts and modern novels betray
the fact that the Huns were and are respected for their brevity and courage and Europe
and other parts of the world are still under impact of the Huns and Attila, the dreadful
enemy for the ancient Empires.

A Tale of Two Cities is a novel with the fictionalized description of the events leading up to the birth
of the new French Republic. Charles Dickenss novel has helped to shape generations of readers unders-
tanding of one of the most important events in modern history. It is not just a history but a good fiction that
can be as influential as history itself. This novel distinctly reveals violence of authority and gives perfect
representation of the million wasted lives by stating that while tyranny will inevitably lead to revolution,
revolution will lead just as inevitably to tyranny and it is obviously seen that power shades actual intentions
gradually by its magical enchantment.
Key words: French Revolution, Class Distinctions, Mob Mentality, England.

A Tale of Two Cities created the image of a stable England by using revolutionary
France as a setting to highlight the contrasts between the two countries, although Dickens
seemed to believe in the eighteen-fifties that England was heading towards an uprising
on the scale of the French Revolution. Dickens decided to write about the French Re-
volution as a sort of comparative study, because the violence that broke out in the French
Revolution was something that terrified countries across Europe. So, revolution broke
out in France and France isnt so far from England. In fact, conditions in France arent
that different from conditions in England. He wanted to send a message that the English
royalty should have been scared.
Dickens warns his readers and this warning is addressed not to the British lower
classes, but to the aristocracy. He repeatedly uses the metaphor of sowing and reaping
by stating if the aristocracy continues to plant the seeds of a revolution through behaving
unjustly, they can be certain of harvesting that revolution in time and because of this
reason he gives long comparison of two countries at the beginning of the book.
Much of the action of A Tale of Two Cities takes place in Paris during the French
Revolution, which began in 1789. In A Tale of Two Cities, Dickens shows how the
tyranny of the French aristocracy-high taxes, unjust laws, and a complete indifference
toward the well-being of the poor-fed a rage among the commoners that eventually
erupted in revolution.
Dickens's outlook on revolutionary violence differed significantly from others. As
Irene Collins points out Dickens dislikes the violence of the revolutionaries, both in
its popular form (the mob) and in its institutionalized form (the terror). Unlike others,
he can no longer see justice in the violence. Dickens suggests that the French revo-
lutionaries begin to abuse their power just as much as the nobility did. While the French
commoners reasons for revolting were entirely understandable, and the French Revo-
lution was widely praised for its stated ideals of Liberty, Equality, and Fraternity,
Dickens takes a more pessimistic view by showing how the revolutionaries use oppression
and violence to satisfy their own selfish and bloodthirsty desires.
In A Tale of Two Cities we see deep distinction between the rich and the poor. While
one needs four servants to make his hot chocolate every morning others are on their
hands and knees in the street to lick up drops of spilled wine, are left with nothing but
onions to eat and are forced to starve. Every time the nobles refer to the life of the
peasants it is only to destroy or humiliate the poor. With his depiction of a broken wine
cask outside Defarges wine shop, and with his portrayal of the passing peasants trying
to drink the spilling wine, Dickens creates a symbol for the desperate quality of the
peoples hunger. This hunger is both the literal hunger for food-the French peasants
were starving in their poverty-and the metaphorical hunger for political freedoms.
Dickens deeply sympathizes with the plight of the French peasantry and emphasizes
their need for liberation. Although Dickens condemns this oppression, however, he
also blames the peasants strategies in overcoming it. The peasants could not get appre-
ciation of reader by fighting cruelty with cruelty. They only intensify the violence that
they themselves have suffered. Dickens makes his position clear while giving descriptions
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
of the mobs with deep aversion. Though Dickens sees the French Revolution as a great
symbol of transformation and resurrection, he emphasizes that its violent ways were
completely antithetical and immoral.
The French Revolution began as a critique of the aristocracy; as Dickens demons-
trates, however, the "classless" formation of the new French Republic becomes another
form of class violence. Someones always in power. And the powerless always suffer.
As the poor of France take to the streets, they fire a bloody and violent revolution. Blood
runs through the streets of Paris, entire families depend on new and unjust laws, and
no one can be sure of their future in the first years of the New Republic. Throughout
the novel, Dickens approaches his historical subject with some ambivalence. While he
supports the revolution, he often points to the evil of the revolutionaries themselves.
Righteous, justice-seeking people turn out to be bloody murderers. In other words, war
tends to confound most peoples expectations. Once blood starts spilling in the streets,
telling the difference between right and wrong becomes extremely difficult. A Tale of
Two Cities explores the dark sides of revolution, such as how "freedom" can easily
change its color and become another title for fanaticism.
Dickenss novel explores the complicated relationship that emerges between the
political and the social consequences of revolution. As French citizens take to the streets,
demanding justice for themselves and their families, they also construct a justice system
that becomes anything but fair and impartial. Throughout the novel, Dickens sharply
criticizes mob mentality, which he condemns for committing the very cruelty and
oppression from which the revolutionaries hope to free themselves. In A Tale of Two
Cities Dickens suggests that whoever is in power, nobles or commoners will use their
power in cruel ways and forget the reasons that brought them to this position. He is not
taking side, nor tries reader to be in sympathy with one of them. He just believes that the
only way to break the cycle of tyranny is through the application of justice and mercy.

Stream of consciousness is a narrative mode that helps the author to portray the inner world of his/her
characters through their thoughts, feelings and memories. This technique is characterized by flow of thoughts,
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2

images with coherent structure. It was first introduced by William James , American psychologist and
philosopher in the 19th century.
As a literary technique, stream of consciousness was first employed by modernists writers such as
Dorothy Richardson (Pilgrimage), Marcel Proust(In search of Lost Time), James Joyce (Ulysses), Virginia
Woolf (Mrs Dalloway) and William Faulkner (The Sound and the Fury).
In British Literature Virginia Woolf and James Joyce used stream of consciousness technique as a
way of getting inside the head of their characters. No one has ever entered the characters inner world as
James Joyce did. Perhaps, thats why he is considered one of the most difficult writers.
Key words: consciousness, British, literature, inner world.

Joyce, James Augustine, was one of the most radical innovators of twentieth century writing, who
dedicated himself to exuberant exploration of the total resources of language . He was an Irish novelist and
poet, considered to be one of the most influential writers in the modernist avant-garde of the early twentieth

Dubliners is a series of short, interrelated stories which deal with the lives of ordinary people, whose
actions are invested with a symbolic profundity. Joyce explores what would become central themes in his
work: youth, adolescence, adulthood and maturity, and how identify is affected by these different stages in life.
Araby is the third of the fifteen stories in Dubliners. Araby is a short story centering on an Irish
adolescent emerging from boyhood fantasies into the harsh realities of everyday life in his country. Joyce
based this coming-of-age tale, which he wrote in 1905, on his own experiences while growing up in Dublin
in the late nineteenth century.
Key words: James Joyce, works, Dubliners, Araby , symbols.

Stone Age people lived in caves and made defenses to keep out wild animals. The first towns and
cities had walls to keep out invaders. Kings and nobles fortified their large homes to protect themselves.
The first castles were built by the Normans in England. The great age of castles began almost 1,000
years ago and lasted for nearly 500 years. The names were not originated from one language but also from
different sources.
We know that the English peoples root comes from the Celts and Anglo-Saxons. Before the last few
hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations
are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Castle
were recorded, including Castle, Castell, Castles, Castel, Castello and others. It was found first time in
Sussex where they held a family seat from very ancient times.
Key words: Castle, Origin, Normans.

The origin of the English castles names
Is the Etymology of a Word Its True Definition? Where Do Words Come From?
An etymology tells us where a word came from and what it used to mean. Though,
people sometimes try to make this argument. The word etymology is derived from the
Greek word etymon, which means "the true sense of a word." But in fact the original
meaning of a word is often different from its contemporary definition. The meanings
of many words have changed over time, and older senses of a word may grow uncommon
or disappear entirely from everyday use. New words have entered (and continue to
enter) the English language in many different ways. Here are some of the most com-
mon ways. One of them is borrowing. The majority of the words used in modern English
have been borrowed from other languages. Although most of our vocabulary comes
from Latin and Greek (often by way of other European languages), English has borrowed
words from more than 300 different languages around the world.
Where do the castles names come? And what is the meaning of the castle?
This word is coming from early medieval English topographical origin, and is
derived from the Anglo-Norman French "castel", castle, fortified building or set of
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
buildings, especially the residence of a feudal lord. The name could also have denoted
a servant who lived and worked at such a place. Topographical surnames were among
the earliest created, since both natural and man-made features in the landscape provided
easily recognisable distinguishing names. The name development since 1154 includes
the following: Henry de Castell (1260, Cambridgeshire), John del Castel (1307, York-
shire), and William ate Castele (1317, Kent). The saga of the name Castle follows a line
reaching back through history to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It was
a name for someone who worked as a person who worked in a castle. The original bearer
of the surname Castle may have held the post of governor or constable of the castle.
However, the surname might also be derived from residence near a castle, or from
services or rent owed to a castle. The surname Castle is derived from the Old Norman
French word castel, which means castle.
During the period of the Fall of the Roman Empire and the Rise of the Anglo Saxons
there were built many burhs in England. 'What is the Burhs? Burhs' or 'Burghs' is a
meaning of which meant "fortress" or castle. The meaning gradually changed from
"fortress," to "fortified town," to simply "town". The word 'Burhs' later changed to
Burgh, Bury then Borough which are evident in many modern British place names.
Any such place name is an immediate indication that signifies that a Burh was once
built in the area. What was the difference between the Burhs and Castles? Burhs were
developed as a community effort where as a castle was a private enterprise. A castle
was privately owned under Royal license.
Many place names are derived from the person or group of people who first settled
in the area. The earliest of these place names usually end in ing which is derived from
the Old English ingas and originally meant 'dependants or relatives' of a certain man.
British place names contain elements that can be traced back to the languages spoken
by at least five quite distinct groups of people. The Welsh, the Scots, and the Irish are
well aware that they have often been invaded by the English (amongst others). And a
brief excursion into English history will reveal that the country has been invaded by the
Celts, the Romans, the Anglo-Saxons, the Scandinavians, and the French. All of these
groups contributed words which make up the place names we have today.
The Celts
The Celts were one of the many tribes living in Europe in the years before Christ.
The Celts from Northern France and the Netherlands settled in England. They were
known as the Brythons (Britons). Later, Celts from Southern France settled in Ireland.
They spoke Goidelic (Gaelic).
The Celts left behind names that are found most abundantly in the North and West.
They also gave names to many rivers. Celtic names are often found in isolated spots
which suggest that more remote groups remained Celtic-speaking long after other groups
had accepted that language of the Anglo-Saxons.
One of the castles take its name from the celts. That castle is Balmoral castle. The
name Balmoral from the Gaelic, meaning is Majestic Residence.

The Windsor
One of the most famous castles in England is a Windsor. Windsor began as a Saxon
village. The name Windsor is believed to be a corruption of the Saxon words 'windlass
Oran' meaning a bank with a windlass. After the Saxons founded the settlement it grew
into a town because of its position by a river. The original settlement was at Old Windsor
but William built a castle on an escarpment at Clewer. Windsor Castle, which was
strengthened and improved by Henry II and Henry III, would have a large staff of de-
fenders and servants and provided a market for the townspeoples goods.
Here comes the other castle. The Buckingham Palace is a palace and London residen-
ce of the British sovereign. It is situated within the borough of Westminister. The palace
takes its name from the house built (c. 1705) for John Sheffield, duke of Buckingham.
It was bought in 1762 by George III for his wife, Queen Charlotte, and became known
as the queens house.
The Camelot castle
The Legends and stories about Camelot create an enduring impression of a wonderful,
mystical castle and land where Knights in shining armour lived to an honourable Code
of Chivalry. Did Camelot really exist? There is no historical evidence that King Arthur
existed. The Arthurian legends were based on the books written by the clerics of the
Medieval era or the Middles Ages. But there is some evidence that King Arthur might
have been based on a real person.
Where did the name Camelot originate? There is some speculation that Camelot
was derived from the Latin word 'Camelodunum'. The oldest known literature about
King Arthur makes no reference to Camelot by name. Camelot is first mentioned ex-
plicitly in the romance called Lancelot written by the French poet Chretien de Troyes
between 1170 and 1185. The patroness of Chretien de Troyes was the Countess Marie
de Champagne who was the daughter of Eleanor of Aquitaine who married King Henry
II of England. The name Camelot is mentioned as follows:"Upon a certain Ascension
Day King Arthur had come from Caerleon, and had held a very magnificent court at
Camelot as was fitting on such a day. But the legends of Camelot are legion - there are
no definitive answers!
After learning this information we understand that the English castles names
originated from not only one language, but also different sources. For that reason, the
English castles names have various origins.

Othello is the tragedy of a noble hero brought down by a fatal flaw -- jealousy -- in his character.
Shakespeare's other great tragedies -- Hamlet, King Lear and Macbeth -- deal with issues that affect the
well-being of entire nations, whereas Othello is a domestic tragedy with timeless themes such as love, hate,
jealousy, intrigue, revenge, trust, suspicion, self-interest, racism, judgment and reason. Here we have
humanity in all its dazzling diversity.
Key words: Otello, tragedy, love, jealousy, humanity.

There is hardly a person in this world that doesnt know anything or at least never
heard the name of Shakespeare. This figure is famous not only because of his talent and
masterpieces in literature, but for his enigmatic life as well. Only some general facts
are known about him and his life, but the certain part of his life is still covered with
John Shakespeare and Mary Arden had a child in April of 1564 in Stratford-upon-
Avon. It is not possible to find the record of his birth, but the baptism was written in
church and thus his birth date is considered to be the 23d of April. His father was
alderman in the same town. The sources do not provide enough information about the
youth of Shakespeare, it is known that he attended the Stratford Grammar School and
then could not proceed to Oxford or Cambridge. In the year 1582 he married the girl,
whose name was Anne Hathaway. They had a daughter in a year and later on twins. By
the year 1589 people talked about Shakespeare as about an actor, a poet and a playwright.
Later he joined The Lord Chamberlains Men-this was a really famous acting troupe
in London. In 1599 this troupe lost lease of the theatre called The Theatre; they had
enough money to build their own theater - The Globe. It was opened in July 1599,
the motto of it was: Totus mundus agit historionem meaning a whole world of
players (J. Bate, 85).By the year 1603 James the first came to throne and the troupe
was renamed into Kings Men. In their patent was mentioned that they are free to
use and exercise the art and faculty of playing Comedies, Tragedies, Histories, Interludes,
Morals, Pastorals, stage plays as well for recreation of our loving subjects as for
our solace and pleasure. (S. Wells, 335). Thus the entertaining programs for the king
started and then lasted for another ten years, afterwards the theatre burned. The theatre
was reconstructed and Shakespeare contributed to this reconstruction, but he never
returned to the stage again, he went on writing his works and at the age of 52, on the
same day he was born, he died.
Shakespeare is the author of many masterpieces; one of them is his play Othello.
If to take the period between 1603 and 1604 Othello is the most remarkable tragedy
written by Shakespeare. In Othello we find the combination of most vital human emotions
and feelings hate and love. The story is serious and ironical. We can not judge about
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2

any point of view because there is no narrator in a play, the play tells the audience about
an honest and noble man who can be influenced so that he is ready to kill the woman
he loves. This tragedy is well known all over the world and there are even set phrases
about the main hero and his jealousy.
The main plot of the tragedy comes from Giraldi Clinthios Gli Hecatommithi that
was a tale about love and betrayal. But the characters and themes still differ a lot.
Shakespeare pays more attention to human nature and psychology. The important
difference lies for example in the motivations that Iago had, in the version of Cithio
Iago just wanted to revenge on Desdemona for her refusal, in the Shakespeares play
the situation is more complicated.
The play of Shakespeare is as well connected with the important matter in Europe
at that time, the Muslim religion and culture and their relations with West. The play
was written a century later after the Muslims were moved from Spain, and the readers
and audience could feel the hostility towards Othello because of his origin, religion
beliefs and culture. The conflict between Venice and Turks presents the same hostility
between West and East. The Venetians are trying to protect Christendom from the
coming influence of Muslim Turks, the irony is in the fact that Othello is sent to manage
this mission.
Some researches state that Othello is a good example of Aristotelian drama: there
are not many characters in the play, for Shakespeare this was actually the smallest set
of characters, some certain distractions from the main plot line and concentration on
several themes, including for example jealousy in this case. This play of Shakespeare
proves to be of a great interest for its readers from the very moment it appeared.

Shirley A. Stanley
Qafqaz University, Baku, 27 April, 2012
I would like to thank all of you for coming together today to discuss one of the most
important activities necessary in an institution of higher learning RESEARCH.
Oftentimes, I am hesitant to spend conference time thanking individuals on such
an occasion as this because there is always the risk of omitting the name of some one
person who has been essential for the creation of my presentation. On this occasion,
however, I would be negligent if I did not publicly thank at least a few people. If your
name is not on this list, please know that you are still important to this work. I have
shortened the public listing only due to time and space constraints.
First, I want to thank the Rektor, Dr. Ahmet Sanic, and CAG Education Systems
for allowing me the privilege of participating in the work of this great university named
Qafqaz University. Next, it is essential to thank Cehun Mikayilov, a mathematician on
the Qafqaz Faulty of Economics and Administrative Sciences, Department of World
Economy. Without this man, it would have been impossible to prepare my presentation
quickly and skillfully for you today. He has proven to be a mathematician, statistician,
and scholar of the highest order. Kaitlin Ward, my colleague and friend has generously
taught me much in the short time I have known her. She is herself a superb educator
who really cares about her students. Yagut Bakhshaliyeva is a native Azerbaijani
renaissance woman. This woman has talent in so many different areas, that it will be
impossible for Qafqaz to utilize all of her many skills and insights. It will be impossible
simply because of the large number of things this woman knows and can do. Without
Yagut, I would not have survived those first weeks at Qafqaz University.
Of course, I want to thank the Faculty of Pedagogy of the Department of English
Language and Literature, who specifically invited me to participate in this conference.
Research is essential.
In order to give this subject due respect, I must state plainly, Without research,
there is no university.
Without research, there is no university!
Without research, there may be a school or there may be a building in which teachers
give instruction to students, but without research, this entity is not a university.
Why is it important for you as teachers to conduct research?
1. Without research, you cannot know what fields must be taught.
2. Without research, you cannot know which things within a given field need to be
3. Without research, you cannot know who to teach.
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
4. Without research, you cannot know how to teach.
5. Without research, you cannot know if your teaching was successful.
If you are teaching using the exact same methods and educational strategies you
used when you graduated and obtained your initial degree, you are not teaching well.
If you are teaching using the exact same methods and educational strategies you
used last term, you are not teaching well.
If you are teaching by blindly following a canned curriculum or course exactly
as presented by another person or company, you are not teaching well.
What things are necessary in order to do research?
1. Curiosity, or an inquiring mind
2. An open mind
3. Knowledge of effective techniques for the different types of research.
4. Knowledge of statistics
5. Willingness to expend time and energy in personal learning
When should you be doing research?
You should be doing research at all times you are not sleeping.
Informally, you do research constantly. You might research to select the best market
to buy good vegetables at a fair price. You might research the best method of transpor-
tation for commuting to Qafqaz University. This is continually occurring informal
research that most human beings do constantly as part of their everyday lives.
Formal research should be just as ubiquitous as the informal research you do in
order to make decisions in your everyday life.
Formal research allows you to live your teaching life as skillfully as you live your
human life.
I spend a minimum of two hours of preparation time for every single hour of class
time where I am actively engaged in working with students. A portion of this preparation
time is always devoted to devising research methods and strategies for use in my
classroom as well as for analyzing the results of that research which has been conducted
This is because I change my teaching methods based upon the results of my continual
I will share with you a few tidbits from a bit of research I did with my students the
first week of this term. I did this research so that I could effectively teach best. In other
words, this research was not conducted for the purposes of presenting at this conference.
Instead, it was conducted because I am a teacher and I needed to research my students
in order to tailor specific teaching strategies to the students I have. Otherwise, I would
be devising teaching methods and strategies based upon some mythical, usual or
average student. If that mythical student was not like MY student, then those same
old same old or standard teaching methodologies would be ineffective.

One size shirt will not fit every person attending this conference. One way of
teaching will not fit every student and every situation.
Simply being present in a class with students and teaching in some way does not
equal teaching effectively in much the same way as copying or memorizing does not
equal student learning.
As part of my first week of the new term, I prepared and executed a survey. All of
my students were asked to complete the survey. The survey was written utilizing methods
research has indicated would be most likely to be effective. Next, the surveys were
distributed in class. That class period was spent discussing vocabulary words used in
the survey and the meanings of the questions themselves were discussed. The students
were given the opportunity to ask questions if they did not understand anything at all
on the survey. Only AFTER all this had been done did the students begin their completion
of the survey.
The survey responses were tabulated, and then placed into the form of pie graphs.
While this is useful even at this step, there is further analysis to be made in order
to gain the most useful information for planning for students.
In interpreting the results of the survey, many things must be taken into account. For
example, did the students really understand the question? Did the student understand
the meaning of the possible responses? Did the students know how to mark the survey
in order to indicate the students real opinions? It must be realized that humans of all
ages tend to over-represent in certain areas of inquiry and under-represent in other areas
of inquiry. (How do we know this? We know this from research.)
This is why learning effective techniques for conducting research is essential. If
you do not know the difference between a p value for example and an n value then
it is difficult for you to be an effective researcher. If you do not understand fully the
difference between data and information then it is impossible for you to conduct
effective research.
How can you gain these necessary skills? Take courses in research design and inter-
pretation. Study statistics. Have the good fortune to have a statistician as a friend. There
are innumerable things can be done to improve your ability to conduct effective, useful
Effective research improves the students ability to learn, the teachers ability to
instruct skillfully, and raises the status of your profession. Research does this for your
profession by adding to the collective knowledge available to everyone in your field
as they pursue work in teaching. The more the group knows, the better each individual
can practice.
The world is ever changing and complex. Research is the only way to know reality.
If one does not function in the context of reality, then one is just expending effort without
making a positive change or improvement.
The following represents a simplified and abbreviated rendering of the results of
this survey. While I did not have time to specifically include the entire survey or the
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
actual wording you may still get the idea of how research is useful in the everyday
teacher/student relationship.

This paper is a review of literature on how literature can be integrated as a language teaching material
in EFL/ESL classes. First, it tracks down the place of literature in language classes from the early Grammar
Translation Method (GTM) to Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) era. The paper then discusses
the reasons for the demise and resurrection of literature as an input for language classes. After that the
reasons for and against the use of literature in EFL/ESL classes are enumerated and discussed. Ill draw
upon recent ideas on language teaching practice and theories. Finally in a practical move, this paper reviews
the past and current approaches to teaching literature in language teaching classes. Literature for language
teaching and learning purposes are deliberated and carefully reflected upon. Literature, in spite of some
weak points it might have as any language teaching material might possess, provides a motivating drive
for language learning and teaching due to its spectacular features not readily found in any other texts. Finally,
in order to practically establish these merits, some of the main methodological approaches to teaching
literature are put forward. Relevant practical classroom techniques can be discerned from these models.

Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
Introducing Authentic Literature to an EFL Classrooms
It cannot be denied that in universities the language-literature divide in modern
foreign language departments is well-known and longstanding nevertheless, the sepa-
ration of language from literature in practice involves no rigid dichotomy because no
teacher of literature ignores linguistic problems and no language teacher really wants
to leave his students speaking an impoverished version of the language. Researchers
have argued that literature is valuable authentic and motivating material, which is con-
ducive to students linguistic development, personal involvement, and cultural enrichment.
To maximize the benefits of literature teaching in language classrooms, selection of
literary text is a crucial issue. Criteria for literature selection generally involve two
aspects: students and the text itself. Regarding the students, the literary text selected
should cater for the students tastes, interests and hobbies, and should take into consi-
deration their linguistic proficiency, cultural background, and literary background.
Given the above criteria, selection of literary texts should partly depend on the target
students needs and preferences. However, in many literature teaching in language
classrooms, students attitudes toward literature are often neglected or not given due
attention. Instead, the literary texts selected are usually determined by curriculum
authorities, materials writers, or classroom practitioners. But these professionals pre-
ferences of literature might not be similar to students, and their assumptions of which
literary text will be motivating and appropriate for students might not always be correct.
Since students are the main beneficiary of literature teaching, and investigations or
surveys of students attitudes toward literature are also less conducted in research, it is
worthwhile to investigate students attitudes toward literature and their preferences over
different literary genres. Nevertheless, the main purpose of these studies was to examine
the effects of that particular literary genre on EFL students development of language
skills. Therefore, students positive attitude toward the literary texts taught might be in-
terpreted as their acknowledgement of literary texts as useful instructional materials,
but probably not as their true appreciation of literature for literatures own sake.
Literature is considered as a promising tool for language learning purposes. There
are various advantages for the use of literature in EFL/ESL classes. The merits of lite-
rature in EFL/ESL include: Authenticity, Motivation,Cultural/Intercultural Awareness
and Globalization,Intensive/Extensive Reading Practice, Sociolinguistic/Pragmatic
Knowledge, Grammar and Vocabulary Knowledge, Language Skills, Emotional Intel-
ligence, Critical Thinking.
Literary text selection is based on the following criteria. First, the texts should in-
clude works of different genres. Second, the texts should include works of familiar,
established writers, or works with classic status It is because such texts have more face
validity and are more easily recognized by EFL students as literature. Moreover, since
this experiment was to enable students to experience literature, I consider it essential
to include some classic literature, especially those which the students may have known
the titles but are probably unfamiliar with the contents. Third, the texts should have a
connection with students here and now learning context. It would be motivating for
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
students to study the literature which is currently being discussed in their society, par-
ticularly when that literature has been interpreted through other media, such as movies
or musicals. In preparing, I explored the possibility of computer-assisted literature
teaching (CALT). Nowadays, technology has made teaching and learning easier and
more efficient. Nevertheless, most of the technological applications are concerned with
language teaching and learning (e.g. the widespread applications and discussions of com-
puter-assisted language learning), and there have been few technological applications
regarding literature teaching and learning. Since there are also countless literature re-
sources online, teachers should be encouraged to use them to make their literature class
more interesting. It is expected that having students experience literature in different
modes of delivery may add variety and pleasure to literature classes. Moreover, literature
in music, pictures, or films might motivate students to read literature in print. Compared
with the substantial amount of research on students attitude toward general foreign
language study, research on students attitude toward literature is quite slim. Students
Perceptions of Literature investigates university students attitudes toward the study
of literature in a foreign language as well as the factors affecting their opinions about
literature in general. Moreover, two factors were found to be significantly related to their
attitudes toward literature study, namely, the amount of leisure reading done in the foreign
language, and the preferred learning styles, such as being given opportunities to express
their personal opinions, to look for the underlying meaning of the text, and to read about
people and experiences different from their own. In other words, students attitude toward
literature may be influenced not only by their own reading habits but also by the teachers
instructional methods. It is possible that students have different perceptions of literature
for pleasure (i.e. reading literature for its own sake) and literature for instrumental
use (e.g. reading literature to sharpen language skills).

My current article is about the productive teaching method of grammar. Here I offer different methods
of teaching so that to improve the teaching quality and to provide our education system with new methods
that belong to my own experience. Education is the future of nation by Heydar Aliyev Education is
regarded as the base system and the inseparable part of the government. Of course, while speaking of the
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
target matter, our national leader took into consideration a deeply rooted and a qualified education system.
As a future young teacher, the burden of a good education lies in our shoulders, I'd say.
It is a real fact that if any of the students of foreign language faculty is asked What do you want to
become? -among the 100% of the given answers you'll hardly be able to hear any opinion like I want to
be a teacher. So, there is a serious obstacle in the methodology of teaching process. As the grammar is
regarded as the backbone of the language, I found it necessary to touch upon the teaching of this aspect.
Most students, especially those who want to access language learning run away from the ridged grammar
rules as far as possible. The theme of my dissertation work is modality. Thats why I'll draw your atention
to this side of grammar.
Key words: Education, modality, methods.

In the center of all processes stands the problem of human being -an individual,
a person with certain psychological character, with his complicated qualities. In all these
complications there appears an urgent need to express one's feelings in foreign language.
Fairly speaking, I improved my English in this way. Every time when I listened to my
heart, every time when I heard its constant beatings there was a great need to utter it in
English. So, I had to look up dictionary for any unknown word that I didnt know. But,
of course, the chain of words is not sufficient for expressing deeper emotions. This is
here that modality comes to answer our calls. Modality is the life itself, I would say.
To teach modality just on the basis of strict, ridged grammar rules will lose its beauty,
its significance. If we carry on like this, students will pay no attention either to the
teacher or to the lesson she teaches.
For example, while speaking of the modal verb can and its function denoting phy-
sical or mental ability, if you cite such an example as I can speak English then wait
nothing from your teaching method. As John Locke said: It is difficult to instruct
children because of their natural inattention; the true mode, of course, is to first make
our modes interesting to them.
I offer my own method: Try to start the lesson with construction once upon a
time as if you are going to narrate a tale of something mysterious or with such
gestures, intonations and emotions as though you speak of your personal life (students
are curious about their teacher's personal life-especially when she is young and pretty).
They will glaze at what you are talking about. Even the most chatter-box girls will be
eager about what you are going to say later. Speak about love matters, marriage relation-
ship and include the grammar lesson that you are going to teach in this frame. In case
of choosing examples appropriate to any grammar rule give such sentences that reflect
the moral commotions of your students. For example: You could put all the hearts
together in the world and that still wouldnt describe how much I love you instead of I
could speak English when I was a child while teaching the use of modal verbs could,
would, or may you never feel what I then felt, may your eyes never shed such stormy,
heart-wrung tears as poured from mine instead of may I use your phone?.
Stimulate your students. Ask them to write compositions on the matters they are
mostly interested in, as Friendship between Men and Women. It will help them to
enrich the bulk of vocabulary. In my monthly pedagogical experiment I gave them such
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
instruction. Results admired everyone. Even one of the students had drawn a beautiful
picture under her writing. I hung it from the board of glory.
Praise them, but no often. Ask some questions those who are morally far away from
the lesson as if you are interested in them and whether they have girl-friends or not (in
most cases it belongs to boys). They will awake from their sleep. Ask them to write
their opinions about their friends in English. But don't forget: they have to use current
grammar rule or speech pattern. Because we have our definite aim-to involve them and
teach by this method.
Speak about your achievements. Be sincere as much as possible. They will appreciate
you and ask questions that they are interested in. run away of using any word that will
insult them. Dont be rude.
At the end of my article I'd like to stress that a responsible teacher is a real treasure
of the future development of the state system. Thats all what I noticed in my monthly
pedagogical experiment.

September 20th, 1994 after 3,5 years of arduous negotiations, Contract of the Century was signed to
develop Azerbaijan's Caspian oil reserves.
At that time there were a number of barriers one of which was knowledge of English for implementation
of the Contract. Workers in oil fields were not able to communicate, report or evaluate in English. Even
those who knew English had no idea of applying it in industrial operations. Where was the solution? Employ
all the workers from abroad? The project was believed to open new opportunities and ensure thousands
of occupations.
Key words: English, education, oil, gas.

A group of scientists proposed to teach the workers the English language. For the
first time, thanks to Agreement of total $7.4 billion investment, workers started to learn
English. But there was no time for teaching them Alphabet by means of the following
A is for Apple, B is for Book, C is for Cat.
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
The new approach was introduced, carrying out all the lessons not at the desk but
in oil fields. The industry urgently needed technology, education and specialists. The
scientific exchange started where visitors from Baku were sent for learning new methods
of well deepening and exploitation.
The new Alphabet was:
A for Assessment,
B for Barrel,
C for Capacity.
The birthplace of the international oil industry, Azerbaijan by realization of the
Contract of the Century gained a brilliant result in conducting right oil policy. This
Contract gave opportunity to thousands of workers to integrate in World oil industry
by learning English as an international language. Language barrier was very important
for cooperation and experience exchange.
When we begin to learn a foreign language, we usually use a book whose first
chapters are filled with: "Hello, how are you? My name is Jane." Of course, that would
seem easier to learn, but there was no time to wait for years until the workers manage
the challenge of mastering another tongue.
One of the modern approaches of teaching was Heinrich Schliemann's method.
The famous 19th-century German archeologist Heinrich Schliemann (1822-1890),
who pursued a life-long dream of excavating the remains of Homeric Troy, no doubt
was a genius for language. Within two years, he taught himself fluent Dutch, English,
French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, and later learnt seven more languages, including
both modern and ancient Greek.
How could we, who generally consider ourselves lucky if we manage to learn only
one or two foreign languages in entire lifetime, not be curious about the method he used?
"In order to acquire quickly the Greek vocabulary," Schliemann wrote, "I procured a
modern Greek translation of 'Paul et Virginie' [a French novel; Schliemann already
knew French], and read it through, comparing every word with its equivalent in the
French original. When I had finished this task I knew at least one half the Greek words
the book contained; and after repeating the operation I knew them all, or nearly so,
without having lost a single minute by being obliged to use a dictionary. I never lost
my precious time in studying grammar rules."
He doesn't say how he learned to pronounce ancient Greek, but since nobody speaks
it any more, this probably didn't really matter to him too much. Oil workers were taught
English by this way. They knew the process and terminology. The only thing workers had
to do was studying reports, manuals in two languages by comparing every single word.
The other modern approach is between learning music and learning languages.
Musicians are known to have a special talent for picking up new languages. There are
many famous classical musicians who speak several languages with relative ease. Nor-
mally, we attribute this ability to the musician's superior listening skills, and this is no
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
doubt part of it: the more we train ourselves to listen carefully, the better we will be able
to pronounce foreign words.
Obviously, mastering a foreign language has much to do with our natural talents.
German Grand Master of Chess, Robert Hbner in his article described his visit to
Hungary, but unfortunately, he didn't speak the language. He bought a good book, boar-
ded the train, and when he arrived in Budapest after an eight-hour journey, he could
speak Hungarian more than well enough to get by. Presumably, Herr Hbner had a
photographic memory and an extremely high IQ.
Make a commitment to your goal, and follow through on it with enthusiasm, even
obsession: that's the surest ticket to learning a foreign language in record time!
Just as it's important to have the "feel" of a piece of music in order to play it well,
you must also have the "sense" of a language.

My report is about 4 main problems in our modern education system, problems that every student,
every university, every teacher has to deal with. But if well be brave enough to face them and analyze
realities of education problems we can get rid of them. The first problem that had been touched in my report
is disinterest in the subject studied by students. There are some tips for teachers to make their lessons more
interesting. The second problem that I want to emphasize is the incompetence of teachers and hesitation
of teachers to develop their knowledge in a modern ways and denial of new books and methods. I described
some new methods and literature that students would be more interested to learn. The third problem that
I point out in my report is absence of modern equipment in most of local universities, which leads to
students disinterest in learning. The forth problem is absence of student assessment methods which could
divide students according to their knowledge level. Besides these four, there are many other significant
problems touched and described in my report.
Key words: teaching methods, problems, literature, students, solution.
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
Learning foreign language is not an easy task. The primary goal of teachers (that
is alive people, not any self-study methods) is to simplify the learning process and help
students to overcome any obstacles on the road of mastering the new skills. I would
like to draw your attention to the 4 main difficulties teachers usually experience, and
which modern educational system still can't deal with.
The first problem is disinterest in the subject studied by students. There may be
two reasons correspond for this.
1. Inability of teacher to present material under study the right way.
2. Wrong choice of profession (teacher or translator) or wrong choice of target language
by students & lack of motivation.
If the student is doubting about English as target language, the teacher should ex-
plain that: over 410 mln people speak English as a first language, with over 1 mlrd (2007)
speaking it as an additional language.
It is the official language of the United Nations
and aviation. Its the most widely used language in science and on the Internet. If two
non-native speakers want to communicate, its likely theyll do it in English. English
is the international language that gives many opportunities.
About doubts choosing profession: actually teacher cant predetermine the choice
of each student, mostly the choice is dictated by parents (according to their family tra-
ditions or social status) or society (social trends), but teacher can direct study in path
of interest of student.
About inability of teacher to present material under study on a right way:
There are about 10 well known methods and approaches of teaching English language.
What is a teaching method?
Teaching method is a way of teaching a language which is based on systematic
principles and procedures, i.e., which is an application of views on how a language is
best taught and learned.

Methods of language teaching include:
1. Grammar-translation approach
2. Direct approach or the natural method
3. Reading approach
4. Audio-lingual method
5. Suggestopedia
6. Total Physical Response (TPR)
7. Communicative language teaching (CLT)
8. Presentation, Practice and Production (PPP)
9. Task-based method
10. The silent way

But along this methods teacher should use alternative methods considering the
physiological characteristics and the need of each student.
As in my opinion:
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
1. Karaoke-is one of the greatest non-traditional ways of learning English as a spoken
2. Second is crossword, puzzles, quizzes, Wheel of fortune - this kind of interactive
games does not bore students and develops their thinking skills, learning new words
broaden vocabulary
3. Conversations or conversation clubs on a different interesting actual topic, so students
can stay up to date Also on this conversation clubs students can discuss poetry,
written by them or written by their favorite authors. It will also expand their vocabulary.
4. Movies with subtitles-so students can hear daily conversations and get used to them.
5. Reading interesting novels, fiction, English literature classics and further discussion
expands vocabulary of students. Reading literature is also important for students'
moral development.
6. Using audio materials .Learning and repeating them under teachers control.
As we see teachers main goal should be the expanding of students vocabulary
The importance of vocabulary
2000 words is recognized as the absolute minimum a language learner needs the
survival level
knowing 2000 words means that about 80% of a text will be understood( or 1 in
5 words will be unknown)
knowing 10 000 words means that 93% of a text will be understood this is the
ideal target for a language learner.

The second major problem is the incompetence of teachers and hesitation of teachers
to develop their knowledge in a modern ways and denial of new books and methods.
Despite the boring titles, often forced upon high school students, classics of British
literature have well-paced plots and interesting stories.
Surely every high school student has had to read at one time or another one of the
interminably long and dry books that English teachers love to call "classics" and make a
class read agonizingly slowly over a period of months. Something like, oh, Charles
Dickens' Great Expectations comes to mind. There's nothing wrong with the book, except
that it is too long and too dry and too often read in English classes. It is not any more
impressive the second time it is required than the first, either. Perhaps the problem is
that teachers spend too much time psychoanalyzing the main characters.
At any rate, there do exist classics that have well-paced plots and interesting stories
to tell, however few and far between. The primary feature of such interesting books
seems to be that they introduce relatively surprising plot twists that serve to carry the
momentum of reading. Second, they have interesting characters that the reader learns
to truly care about as they go through the events of the book. Third, they realistically
and accurately depict an era of history, by being set either in the era of the author, which
is still historical to a modern reader, or further back in history than the author. Highlighted
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
here are three classics that possess each of these features. A Tale of Two Cities, by
Charles Dickens In case it seemed that way by the criticism of Great Expectations, for
the record there is nothing wrong with Dickens himself. In fact, he wrote one of the best
classics of all time, A Tale of Two Cities, which is a heart-wrenchingly accurate story
set during the French Revolution about two men who look almost identical, and the
heroic sacrifice of one of them. The two cities are London and Paris, and the two men
are Charles Darnay, a French nobleman, and Sydney Carton, an English lawyer. While
the opening statement, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times..." is one of
the more famous quotes from English literature, the ending is just as memorable. How-
ever, it is generally only known by those who have read the book. No spoilers here.
Wade through Dickens' rambling text and uncover a gem of a story.
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy
If you are interested in the French Revolution and think A Tale of Two Cities is
accurate, take a look at The Scarlet Pimpernel. Not only is the setting accurate, but
Orczy wrote about people who actually existed. The Scarlet Pimpernel itself is the code
name for an English aristocrat who is smuggling refugees out of Paris during the Re-
volution. The book is crafted as a mystery, so that even the reader is not told the identity
of this man until at least halfway through the book, because he is extremely clever at
hiding his identity and pretending to be much less clever than he really is. Throw in some
romance, betrayal, and disguises, and get a really captivating story. Orczy originally
wrote the story as a play, which became very popular. She also went on to write a series
of sequels about the Scarlet Pimpernel and his family, but only the original book is
very commonly read.
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins
This book is an early form of the modern detective novel. Walter Hartwright meets
and rescues the "woman in white" of the title on the way to a new job working for Mr.
Fairlie. When he arrives, he is extremely surprised to meet Mr. Fairlie's beautiful niece
Laura, because she closely resembles the woman in white. Add insanity, deceit, an
unwanted betrothal, and multiple shifting points of view to produce a very interesting
plot that unwinds slowly, with several surprising twists.
There are others, as well, but these three are a good place to start. Further reading
might include some of the Scarlet Pimpernel sequels, or perhaps some French or German
literature. The third problem in our local universities is absence of modern equipment.
As fact students cant show their slides, movies or audio files. As a result students may
lose their interest of doing some interesting projects at home and be less enthusiastic.
Or, for example, phonetic lessons are impossible without laboratory lessons with head
phones. As a solution of this problem I will suggest students to write petitions to dean
or administration of universities.
The forth problem of our educational system in teaching foreign language is
inability of teachers to choose the right materials and literature for students with different
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
knowledge levels. Our university systems syllabus and books seems same for every
student. But in some universities there is test based system that allocates students to
classes according to their knowledge.
Despite of all problems and defects that our education system has students desire
to learn language is determinative.

Poems are, after all, authentic texts. This is a great motivator. Poems are often rich in cultural references,
and they present a wide range of learning opportunities. Teach English through poetry, not to teach the
poetry itself, so you don't need to be a literature expert. Communicative speaking activities: As a way in
to a poem, I might play some background music to create the atmosphere, show some pictures to introduce
the topic, and then get students to think about their personal knowledge or experience which relates to this
topic. Working on pronunciation: The teacher reads the poem to them or play a recording, and they identify
the stresses and pauses. We take a chunk at a time, and one half of the class claps out the rhythm while the
other half beats time, and then they swap over. I recite while they mumble rhythmically, and then as their
confidence grows they could chant in a whisper, a shout, or show a range of emotion.
Writing activities: A poem can spark off some wonderful creative writing. Students can write a letter to
a character in the poem, write about what happened before the beginning or after the ending of the poem
and so on.
Key words: Poems, productive skill, education.

need to be a literature expert. Most of the tried and tested activities used regularly by
language teachers can be adapted easily to bring poetry into the classroom.
Communicative speaking activities
Before doing any productive work, the teacher must give the students plenty of
pre-reading activities so that they are adequately prepared.
As a way in to a poem, I might play some background music to create the atmosphere,
show some pictures to introduce the topic, and then get students to think about their
personal knowledge or experience which relates to this topic.
They then talk about the poem, first with a partner and then in small groups, perhaps
coming together as a class at the end to share ideas. The teacher monitors and feeds in
ideas and vocabulary if necessary, gives brief feedback on language used and notes any
language problems to be dealt with at a later date.
The teacher prepares worksheets for pre-reading speaking activities which might
involve a quiz, a questionnaire, sentence stems to be completed and discussed, state-
ments to be ranked and discussed, and so on.
Students might predict endings to verses, the whole poem, or events occurring after
the end of the poem.
Afterwards, the students could talk about their personal response to the poem,
discuss the characters and theme, or debate the moral issues.
Role plays work well, interviewing a partner, or even dramatizing the poem and
making a video. Students could compare poems on related topics, with different groups
working on different poems and then regrouping to pool their ideas.
Working on pronunciation
It can be fun to get students to rehearse and perform a poem. The teacher reads the
poem to them or play a recording, and they identify the stresses and pauses.
We take a chunk (usually a line, sometimes two) at a time, and one half of the class
claps out the rhythm while the other half beats time, and then they swap over.
I recite while they mumble rhythmically, and then as their confidence grows they
could chant in a whisper, a shout, or show a range of emotion. For me, this tends to
work best when it is improvised. I keep it snappy - it's a high energy activity, and you
have to know and trust each other!
I sometimes do intensive phoneme work centred on the rhyming patterns in the poem:
Some poems are crying out to be exploited in this way. I elicit possible rhymes before
revealing the poet's choice, and discuss which suggestions have exactly the same sound
and which don't, leading to a minimal pair activity.
Writing activities
A poem can spark off some wonderful creative writing. Students can add more lines
or stanzas individually or in pairs or groups.
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
They can write a letter to a character in the poem, write about what happened before
the beginning or after the ending of the poem and so on.
Students could use the poem as a starting point and model for some parallel writing:
Each group might contribute a verse to a collective poem (or rap).
Genre transfer presents a lot of opportunities for writing practice; letters, diary
entries, radio plays, newspaper articles, agony aunt columns all based on the original
text from a poem.
My students have found reformulation exercises very stimulating, where they switch
between formal and informal language.
Longer poems can be summarized in fifty words.
It is also fun to get students to transform content words to synonyms or antonyms
and then discuss the subtleties of vocabulary.

There are four communication skills described by Schmuck and chmuck(2001), that people can use
to make the process of sending and receiving messages more effective and thereby reduce the gap in
communication .Two of these skills assist the sender; two assist the receiver. Paraphrase- Paraphrasing is
a skill for checking whether or not you understand the ideas being communicated to you. Paraphrasing is
more than word swapping or merely saying back what another person says. Describes Behavior- In using
behavior description, one person reports specific observable behaviors of another person without evaluating
them or making inferences about the other's motives. Describe Feelings- Although people often take pains
to make sure that others understand their ideas, only rarely do they describe how they are feeling. Instead,
they act on their feelings, sending messages that others draw inferences from. Check Impressions- Checking
impressions is a skill that complements describing your own feeling and involves checking your sense of
what is going on inside the other person. You transform the other's expression of feelings (the blush, the
silence, the tone of voice)into a tentative description of feelings and check it out for accuracy.
Key words: communication, skill, teacher, accuracy.

of the receiver's interpretation. The sender's statement may convey specific infor-
mation, an example, or a more general idea
2. Describe Behavior. In using behavior description, one person reports specific ob-
servable behaviors of another person without evaluating them or making inferences
about the other's motives. If you tell me that I am rude (a trait) or that I do not care
about your opinion (my motivations) when I am not trying to be rude and do care
about your opinion, I may not understand what you are trying to communicate. How
ever, if you point out that I have interrupted you several times in the last ten minutes,
I would receive a clearer picture of how my actions were affecting you. Sometimes
it is helpful to preface a behavior description with, "I noticed that ..." or "I hear you
say..."to remind yourself that you are trying to describe specific actions.
3. Describe Feelings. Although people often take pains to make sure that others un-
derstand their ideas, only rarely do they describe how they are feeling .Instead, they
act on their feelings, sending messages that others draw inferences from. If you
think that others are failing to take your feelings into account, it is helpful to put
those feelings into words. Instead of blushing and saying nothing, try "I feel em-
barrassed" or "I feel pleased." Instead of "Shut up!" try "I hurt too much to hear any
more" or "I'm angry with you.
4. Check Impressions. Checking impressions is a skill that complements describing
your own feeling and involves checking your sense of what is going on inside the
other person. You transform the other's expression of feelings (the blush, the silence,
the tone of voice)into a tentative description of feelings and check it out for accuracy.
An impression check describes what you think the other's feelings may be and does
not express disapproval or approval. It merely conveys, "This is how I understand
your feelings. Am I accurate?" Examples include the following: "I get the impression
you are angry with me. Are you?" "Am I right that you feel disappointed that no
body commented on your suggestions?"
Often an impression check can be coupled easily with a behavior description, as in
these examples:
"Ellen, you've said nothing so far and seem upset with the class. "Jim, you've made
that proposal a couple of times. Are you feeling put down because we haven't accepted it?"
Teachers can learn and model these skills in their classrooms. They can also teach
them directly to students, just as they teach many other skills.

In this century technology develops very rapidly. Our life style, perspectives and ideas are changing.
Everything is going positively because we can access whatever we want very easily, quickly and clearly.
Nowadays computer and internet are part of our life we use them everywhere, especially in education. In
recent times computer becomes more important teachers use computer more than before, although some
lecturers refuse using visual aids like slide show, pictures realia, songs. As a result lessons become more
interesting and useful, todays generation is accepted as technology generation. Because of the innovations
that took place in technology, positively influenced education. As a result a big deal of investment put in
to education as well as in to electronic learning. E-learning attracts students, because they dont want to
go abroad and spend millions of dollars to accommodation,travel, renting adopting new society and education.

The computer-assisted learning environment emerged after 1980s. The education moved to the Internet
with the development of Internet network installed among computers in 1994s. Internet-sup-ported edu-
cation has developed rapidly. Since 2000s the technology has encountered in all aspects of our lives and
changed its name as e-learning. E-Learning has developed the positive aspects of computer-supported
education and with the assistance of technology much negativity has been eliminated. E-learning is a great
chance for students to get education without having trouble with finance and society. It focuses just on
getting education.
Key words: technology, education, electronic learning (e-learning).

Electironic learning (E-Learning)
Electronic learning is a new system that contains all forms of supported learning
and teaching. This system facilitates education by the helping of information and com-
munication systems, whether networked learning or not, serve specific media to imple-
ment the learning process. The term will still most likely be utilized to reference out-
of-classroom and in-classroom educational experiences via technology, even as advances
continue in regard to devices and curriculum.
E-learning is essentially the computer and network-enabled transfer of skills and
knowledge. E-learning applications and processes include Web-based learning, computer-
based learning, virtual education opportunities and digital collaboration. Content is
delivered via the Internet, intranet/extranet, audio or video tape, satellite TV, and CD-
ROM. It can be self-paced or instructor-led and includes media in the form of text,
image, animation, streaming video and audio.

E-learning is very useful in this century. Learners in front of the computer they can
follow every conference or lessons without time problem, information problem and
economical problem because of e-learning. So e- learning has two sessions, these are
synchronous learning and asynchronous learning.
Synchronous learning is students and teachers communicate with each other through
e-chats. Chat, officially give the educator and the continuation of the course before the
realization of the remote or through conversation. Generally, real-time e-learning edu-
cators Internet broadcast, simultaneously with the presentation of images and performed
with the use of smart board. Students voice or written answers to questions.

Asynchronous learning is learner self-governing and determines its own pace. E-
learning, teachers and students require to be online at the same time. This kind of e-
learning is called asynchronous e-learning. The materials are organized according to
classes, learning methods, such as, the problem and is included in the simulation. Each
student, during the course directly interact with the computer. Ideally, this kind of
meaningful interaction between students and their learning orientations requires lessons.
The lessons usually include assessments and tests.

So learners have a lot of reason for a prefering e-learning. For ex: The most important
reason for prefer e-learning is, student doesnt have time and place problem. Anytime,
anywhere (campus,school, home, at work) we can connect our lecturer or classmates.
So we can access the information through of electronic devices and internet connection.
Another reason is this learning style is student centered. In traditional face to face
teaching method generally teacher centered in classroom and sometimes its boring for
students also in this style student must came to class and student must participate in
lesson because teacher doesnt repeat his lesson but in e-learning system is student cen-
tered. Student doesnt need to participate in classroom, and doesnt need to learn to his
or her lesson by the teacher also we can whenever we want connect our lecturer and if
we dont understand lesson we can repeat one more time till we get a lesson or subject.
Also another important point is, the cheapest way for a learning. Specially nowadays
e-learning is more common in MBA programs. Learners both they can work in their
country and they can follow master program in another country. E- learning is suitable.
In the same time students can to compose online debate session in this way students
can share their information with their friends whom from Africa, America, Japanese
China, Turkey, these everybody is in same session and we can share
our idea with them in chat rooms. Only we need computer and internet connection. Also
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
another reason is, we can access the information very fast. We touch only one button
and we connect one place to another place to fast. For these reason, we choose e-learning.
This is the great chance for us.

Since Language learning strategies, defined by Chamot (2005) as procedures that facilitate language
learning tasks, have a crucial role in students language learning, the present study dealt with this issue
in a two dimensional way: First, the existence of using different types of learning strategies among EFL
students was investigated; therefore, it showed that which kinds of learning strategies are overlooked and
which are favored. Second, the students opinions and feelings of each kind of strategy were discovered.
The results of first dimension were quantitatively conducted by a standard questionnaire and the other
dimension were qualitatively managed by carrying out interviews. The result of this study would be be-
neficial for students to be aware of their strengths and weaknesses in using learning strategies, and also
professors could have a thorough understanding of students current status and needs in case of language
learning strategies; and as a result, they could adopt some changes in their methodology to bold the effect of
these strategies to learners, and moreover teach and encourage students to use those overlooked learning
Keywords: Strategy, Learning strategy, Language learning strategy.

Over the last few decades, a gradual shift has taken place, from the emphesis on
language teachers to students themselves. The reason is to make students less dependent

to teachers and make them autonomous in learning. This change in second language
learning is very dominant. Therefore, language learning strategies which language
learners independently use in order to acquire a new language become more integral
in the process of second or foreign language learning. Therefore, This research is con-
cerned with language learning strategies which are strategies students use to learn a new
language better. Also in this article we will find out more about language learning strate-
gies. We will find out Where they are come from, how many types they have and so on.
It is an old saying which says: Instead of giving fish, teach how to fish;
therefore, in second language teaching this criteria should be take into account but
making students independent is a very difficult task in this regard, especially in some
cultures which students are strongly dependent to their teachers and they do not apt to
do things on their own decisions.
Language learning strategies are those ones which could help students to become
autonomous, but we should investigate how students should deal with these strategies,
where they can learn these strategies, and which strategies are more useful and more
popular than others.
1. Participants. 100 students were as our participants, all of them were from 5 different
inistitutes. They were between the ages of 20 to 30. They were all randomly chosen,
and to make their level of proficiency constant I take their previous semsters
average score into account. Their average scrores were between 70 to 90 out of 100.
2. Design. This descriptive research is conducted in five different inistitutes and it
involves students of these inistitutes in case of LLS. In order to reach the appropriate
results for our research questions, two way of gathering data were used (Qualitative
and Quantitative).
3. Instruments. For the quantitative purpose I used the standard LLS Questionnaire.
And for qualitative in order to elicit more information from the participants, I
asked 4 open-ended questions.
4. Procedure. The questionnaires were administered to those 100 students and they
were asked to fill out the questionnaire precisely and also answer to those 4 open-
ended questions. While students were filling out the questionnaire, they were pro-
vided with complementery information about what each strategy is. Finally, data
were gathered and interpreted.
To sum it up It is good to mention again that in cognitive strategies, Repetition,
Note Taking and Classifying were used mostly by our participants. While Concept
mapping, Imagery and Translation have recieved less attention.
Also in metacognitive strategies, strategies like Self-evaluation, Self-management
and Selective attention have recieved more attention by srudents, in contrast, Self-
reinforcement, Delayed production and Advance organizers were not used much by

participants. Social strategies are not in good condition either. But overall view of statistics
shows that our participants are average strategy users. They neither use them alot nor
use them a little.

People acquire new knowledge and complex skills from game play, suggesting gaming could help
address one of the nations most pressing needs strengthening our system of education and preparing
workers for 21st century jobs. The success of complex video games demonstrates games can teach higher-
order thinking skills such as strategic thinking, interpretative analysis, problem solving, plan formulation
and execution, and adaptation to rapid change. Games and simulations can also serve as powerful hands-
on tools for teaching practical and technical skills. In addition, todays students who have grown-up with
digital technology and video games are especially poised to take advantage of the features of educational
games. The creation, commercialization and adoption of games for learning is a multidisciplinary innovation
challenge-involving scientific discovery and technical advancement, creative design and development, a
friendly investment climate, changes in pedagogy, and new roles for teachers and students. Schools of
education should engage the learning games community to develop new and revamp old pedagogy to take
advantage of these new educational tools.
Key words: education, games, teaching, technology

Students are not merely technology savvy, they are approaching their lives differently
as they integrate digital technologies-such as computers, the Internet, instant messaging,
cell phones, and e-mail-seamlessly throughout their daily activities. Time spent using
digital media by children aged 1317 has now surpassed the time they spend watching
The digital natives use digital tools in support of their schoolwork. For example,
students aged 617 who go on-line, report that educational activities such as homework
and research are among their top five daily uses of the Internet. One in five children
who use the Internet at home report that they go on-line every day for educational
purposes. Just 6-17 go on-line to play individual or multiplayer games at least once a week.
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
These individuals spend a significant amount of time playing digital games. On average,
kids aged 8-18 spend about 50 minutes per day playing video games. (Connected to the
Future: A Report on Childrens Internet Use, Corporation for Public Broadcasting,
March 2003.)
There are 3 types of game: board, card and video games. A board game is a game
played with counters or pieces that are placed on, removed from, or moved across a
"board" premarked surface, usually specific to that game). Frequent subject matters for
educational board games are geographical, and the board is a map of the region taught.
An educational card game is any game using playing cards, either traditional or game-
specific. Generally these dula expand concepts, such as the food chain, set matching,
etc. Flash card games are used to teach math, animal, and dinosaur species.
Some card games improve memory. To aid in educating students and adults about
the finer details of different political systems, numerous companies have developed
simulations that immerse the player into different political systems by forcing them to
make realistic political decisions. These games vary from running an actual election
campaign to games that allow the player to make the day-to-day decisions of running
a country, as seen in Democracy. These types of games are targeted at students, educators
and adults alike.While the digital natives have embraced new technologies, including
video gaming, they are largely disconnected in their classrooms. Most student educational
use of the Internet occurs outside of the school day, outside of the school building, and
outside the direction of their teachers. For example, among students aged 12-17 who go
on-line from more than one location, 83 percent say they go on-line mostly from
home, and only 11 percent say they go on-line mostly from school.16 Students are
frustrated and increasingly dissatisfied by the digital disconnect they experience at
school. They cannot conceive of doing schoolwork without Internet access and they
are not given many opportunities in school to take advantage of the Internet. In addition,
interactive games are the medium of attention for youth, who spend large numbers of
hours playing these games.. Yet, most instruction is still tell and test, in which students
take in information passively from reading and lectures, reciting it back in the form of
work sheets, reports, and tests. Commercial games are vivid and action oriented, com-
pared to teachers in classrooms using chalkboards. Given these contrasts, educational
games might improve students attitudes about learning even difficult subjects, including
those who are not attracted to studying mathematics and science.
Many game features, combined and designed effectively into educational gaming,
could teach many things in an engaging and motivating manner. Games could be used
for the expansion of cognitive abilities, as well as a platform for developing new or
practicing existing skills in the context of real world goals, rules, and situations. Games
could also be used to teach old subjects in new ways. For example, in the civilization-
building games, players may explore subjects such as math, how computers work, and
geography within the rules structure of the game. Through games and simulations,
learners can exercise practical skills-such as operating sophisticated aircraft, building
a bridge, tinkering with chemical reactions in living cells, experimenting with marketing
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
techniques, performing surgery, or controlling scientific equipment-in a safe, low
consequence-for-failure environment. This allows learners to move up the learning
curve, without risking life, limb, or damage to expensive equipment in the early part
of training and practice. If learners fail in the tasks they are learning, little harm is done,
and they can try repeatedly to gain mastery of the required knowledge and skills.
Chemikul is an online science/ chemistry-based game that will send you on an atomic
mind-bender of confusion-as well as provide endless hours of enjoyment! With super-slick
ambient graphics and simple acoustics, its a learning experience that anyone can enjoy.
The goal is to create molecules using all of the atoms floating in the game screen.
Arithmetic Challenge is the questions appear for a short period of time in this
quick-reactions, interactive arithmetic math game .
Magic Library is a fun game to help children and players of all ages to improve
your typing and keyboard skills, by testing your familiarity and memory of where each
letter is on your computer keyboard, and also developing your fast-reactions skills. You
are challenged to learn your keyboard letter keys by heart, and gain fast typing skills
while enjoying a fun online activity at the same time.
Different types of games and simulations may teach different knowledge and skills
more effectively. In addition, different game and simulation environments, structures,
and sequences are likely to be needed for different learning tasks and learning groups.
Games have numerous features that work together to create compelling play and
experiences, and high levels of time-on-task. Studies have shown that incorporating
challenges into learning has motivational benefits. Many of todays commercial video
and computer games demonstrate this feature through players high levels of time on-
task. The nature of challenges, competition, and why they motivate should be explored.
This includes better understanding of the motivational and engagement aspects of games
at the neurobiological, cognitive, and socio-cultural levels.

What is educational psychology? Educational psychology is very important period in the learning
process. The changes require learning and teaching skills that were less important in earlier time. But the
new skills are quite learnable. Educational psychology can help to learners in this way. Every joy of teaching
has a possible frustration related to educational psychology. If you are a teacher, you may wish to make a
positive difference in students lives, but you may also have trouble reaching individuals. A student seems
not to learn much, or to be unmotivated, or unfriendly, or whatever. And some teaching problems can be
subtle: when you call attention to the wonderful immensity or an area of knowledge, you might accidentally
discourage a student by implying that the student can never learn enough. The complexity of designing
and implementing instruction can sometimes seem overwhelming, instead of satisfying. But if you believe
yourself and your students knowledge, everything will be good for you. A teachers job -in fact a teachers
privilege-is to help particular young people to realize their potential. As a teacher, you will be able to
do this by laying groundwork for lifelong learning. You will not teach any one student forever, of course,
but you will often with them long enough to convey message: that there is much in life to learn -more in
fact than any one teacher or school can provide in a lifetime. The knowledge may be about science, math, or
learning to read; the skills may be sports, music, or art-anything. Whatever you teach, its immensity can
be a curiosity, wonder and excitement. It can be a reason to be optimistic about life in general and about
your students in particular. Learning, when properly understood, is never-ending, even thought it often
focuses on short-term, immediate concerns. As a teacher, you will have an advantage not shared by every
member of society, namely the excuse not only to teach valuable knowledge and skills, but to point students
beyond what they will be able to learn from you. As an old limerick put it.The world is full of such a plenty
of things, Im sure we should all be as happy as kings. In the learning processes, it is very important student
and teacher relationship, because its improving high level of learning. However in this process, it is very
important thing that, teachers must know what and how they teach, or which way better for student to study
in the learning process. All things considered, then, times have changed for teachers. But teaching remains
an attractive, satisfying, and worthwhile profession. The resent trends mean simply that you need to prepare
for teaching differently than you might have in the past, and perhaps differently than own school teachers
did a generation ago.
Key words: educational psychology, implementing instruction, student and teacher relationship,
learning process, short-term, accountability in education, lifelong learning.

This article will inform you about why situation comedies are used as a tool in the ELT classes. Some
students can learn and understand the lesson by watching. Sitcoms are short and have many features.
Thats why teachers prefer to use it in their lessons. Sitcoms help students to improve their listening
skills and vocabulary knowledge easily and make the lesson entertaining.
Key words: comedy, Sitcoms, ELT, language.

Katherine Bilsb says, English teachers have been using videos in the classroom
for decades and, more recently DVDs and online video clips from Youtube or Myspace.
Sitcoms are an excellent classroom resource for a number of reasons. An episode ge-
nerally lasts 30 minutes so we dont have to worry about students getting bored or
losing the plot as sometimes happens when we watch a feature film. Sitcoms are often
repetitive too. Students who watch more than one episode become familiar with the
characters and their catchphrases. As students begin to predict how a character might
behave in a particular circumstance they will become more motivated and enjoy a sense
of achievement.
Situation comedy or shortly sitcom, generally known that is a kind of radio or te-
levision comedy series that characters sharing the same common environment in every
episode such as; an apartment building or workplace and accompanied with jokes as a
part of the dialogue. Its interesting that nowadays situation comedy is used as an im-
portant tool to teach the students the language, especially new vocabularies almost every
ELT classes. So why do the teachers use the sitcoms? What are the features of it?
Firstly sitcoms are funny that make everyone laughed. It really provides the positive
atmosphere in the class and students become motivated about it. If the learners being
motivated their interest to lesson will increase and they can learn and understand the
language without being bored.
Sitcoms provide us with authentic English. English teaching videos are designed
for the classroom and purvey authentic materials and different varieties of the English
language; for example with typical slangs, locutions and sayings. With this, students
make contacts with humorous utterances and expressions. Also they can learn pronun-
ciation of the words and improve their listening ability by watching sitcoms. These
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2

features build up the students understanding for the English language in natural and
authentic way. It is said that a large part of communication is nonverbal. Thats why
seeing the facial expressions and gestures of the characters help students understand the
meaning of the words and acquire it easily.
Anywhere in the world there are many sitcoms. This exposure to different varieties
of English introduces to learners that there isnt one standardized version of the language.
However, English language has different accent and pronunciation versions such as;
American English, British English, Australian English. This varieties may cause misun-
derstanding by students.
Sitcoms are full of cultural references. Depending on the situation these references
portray the city that we live and show the differences and similarities between other
countries such as; culture, lifestyle, religion and etc.
Also there are many different topics and situations in the sitcoms that teachers can
work with the students on their vocabulary by watching a short part of the scene.
Teachers can pick some unknown vocabularies from that scene and they can discuss
the meaning of the word. This is also help students to acquire the new vocabularies and
use it in a sentence. Most of the students are shy about speaking target language. Acting
a scene from the sitcom in the class can increase their self-confident and it helps students
to communicate with other people in daily life.

Some linguists divide language learning into the four language skills of listening, reading, speaking
and writing. When students read and listen to English, they only have to recognize and understand the
language that they read or listen to. So we call these the two receptive skills. Speaking and writing also
have some similar features. When students speak or write, they have to produce language. So we call these
the productive skills.
The linguistics plan a reading skills lesson in three parts:
pre, while and post reading.
The purpose of pre - reading activities is to help students to think about the activity and motivate
them to read the text, or listen to the story or conversation.
The purpose of while - reading task is to give students a real reason to read. The teacher can set
different types of tasks in order to help students to read either for the general idea or for specific information.

In the post phase of the lesson, it is useful to do activities which require students to react to what
they have read by using the information they have found out.
Key words: Lesson, language, reading, listening, speaking, skills.

Some linguists divide language learning into the four language skills of listening,
reading, speaking and writing. Reading and listening have some similar features. When
students read and listen to English, they only have to recognize and understand the lan-
guage that they read or listen to. So we call these the two receptive skills. Speaking
and writing also have some similar features. When students speak or write, they have
to produce language. So we call these the productive skills.
Reading also has some features which are similar to writing. When students read
or write, they have time to think about the meaning of the language. They can read the
text again, they can rewrite and correct. What they have written. They have time to
think about what they have read or written.
When students listen or speak, they have less time: they have to react quickly. In
real-life situations, you usually only hear something once. Sometimes you can ask so-
meone to repeat it-but you cannot do that if you are listening to a station announcement
or to the television or radio. When someone asks you a question, you have to understand
what they said, think of a reply and say it in English in a short space of time.
These different features of reading, listening, speaking and writing mean that we
need to plan our lessons to give students different kinds of learning activities to practice
each language skill.
Speaking and writing can be taught and practiced either as part of a PPP lesson or
as a separate lesson. So first, lets look at a slightly different lesson framework for
teaching reading and listening.
We plan a reading skills lesson in three parts:
1. pre reading
2. while reading
3. post reading
Before we read in our own language, we usually already know something about the
text we are reading, The information we choose to read is not often completely new
or uninteresting to us. This is a skill called prediction.
In the pre phase, students prepare for the main reading activity. The purpose of
pre - reading activities is to help students to think about the activity and motivate them
to read the text, or listen to the story or conversation. The activities aim to help students
use the skill of prediction:
Then, while we read we usually do this in two ways. We may want to find out the
general idea or topic of something we are reading, or we may want some very specific
information. To find a general idea, we read everything from start to end, so that we
can identify the main idea. This sub skill is called reading for the main idea (s). If we
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
want very specific information from what we are reading, then we try to select the
particular information we want: we do not worry about other information or ideas that
we do not need. This sub skills is called reading for specific information.
In the while phase, the teacher gives the students a task to do while they are reading.
The purpose of the task is to give students a real reason to read. The teacher can set
different types of tasks in order to help students to read either for the general idea or
for specific information.
Finally, in real life, we usually take action after we have read something or listened
to something. We reply, we tell a friend about it, we make a note of it, we write to
someone about it, or we act upon it (we catch the right train or bus!).
In the post phase of the lesson, it is useful to do activities which require students
to react to what they have read by using the information they have found out. This allows
you to check whether your students have understood what they have read or what they
have listened to, and to practice reading and listening in real-life situations.

Nowadays more and more English teachers use stories cautiously and relevantly selected from childrens
literature. Benjamin Franklin said: Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.
This paper is about benefits of using stories in teaching a foreign language. Illustrations, meaningful content
of stories and their association, familiarity with the real world help a teacher stimulate interest, attention,
curiosity in children and engage, involve them in learning a foreign language. Its fun and enjoyable for
children to read, listen to stories and to use different activities, through which they practice and learn to use
the target language, during the lesson. Stories also help to develop and improve reading, listening, speaking
and writing skills. Through stories different social skills, imaginative creativity can also be developed.
Stories supply children with examples of reliable language use.
Key words: stories, story books, a target language, skills.

Since English is an international language of communication, science, information
technology, business, radio, diplomacy and so on, it is important to teach English to
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
children as early as possible. Many teaching techniques can be used to realize this aim.
And one of them is using story books. Stories can help children in learning both their
mother tongue and different foreign languages. Of course, in countries of which native
language isnt English using story books is important and useful because it enlarges
childrens experience in English.
First of all through stories children get information about different people, new
countries and various cultural values. They can read abbreviated parts of famous authors
works in a simplified way in story books. So it can broaden their horizon. Learning
English through stories can lay the foundations for secondary school in terms of learning
basic language functions and structures, vocabulary and language learning skills.
Stories can help develop positive attitudes towards the foreign language, culture and
language learning.
Stories increase childrens interest in the target language and culture.
Besides children enjoy reading especially if the book is illustrated. Stories with
illustrations attract not only a childs attention but also an adults , make them be inte-
rested, curious in reading and learning a foreign language. So stories increase motivation
in children, but stories should fit a childs age and developmental level, be appropriate,
interesting, meaningful and not to be very complicated, otherwise the child can be de-
motivated and lose his interest in learning a target language. Illustrations also help them
understand the content of a story.
Bruner has noted, we live our lives and shape our identities through stories. Basing
on this view Carol Read writes that stories and drama help children to make sense of
their own behavior and others, and to develop aspects of emotional, such as empathy.

A story is a part of literature. Reading literature develops tolerance and creativity
in children. Northrop Frye writes: Its clear that the end of literary teaching isnt simply
the admiration of literature; its something more like the transfer of imaginative energy
from literature to the students. (1: 193) Stories are a useful tool in linking fantasy and
the imagination with the childs real world. They provide a way of enabling children
to make sense of their everyday life and forge links between home and school.

Widdowson identifies two levels of linguistic knowledge: the level of usage and
the level of use. In his opinion the level of usage demands knowledge of linguistic rules
and the latter demands knowing how to use the very rules in communication. And lite-
rature is useful in developing knowledge both in a usage level and in a use level. (1: 191)
Listening to stories is useful as well as reading. It improves their listening compre-
hension and pronunciation. Children enjoy listening to stories over and over again.
This frequent repetition allows certain language items to be acquired while others are
being overtly reinforced. Many stories contain natural repetition of key vocabulary and
structures. This helps children remember every detail, so they can gradually learn to
anticipate what is about to happen next in the story. Repetition also encourages parti-
cipation in the narrative.
Repetition of different words and grammatical structures in
stories enlarges a childs vocabulary and strengthens his knowledge of grammar, at the
same time makes them memorable. This in its turn helps to develop a childs self-esteem
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2

and courage. A child begins to hold intercourse in a foreign language with others easily
without shyness. So stories improve not only reading skills, but also a childs speaking
and his communication both with the teacher and with his peers. The more they read,
the more their thinking in a target language will be encouraged. Stories allow the
teacher to introduce or revise new vocabulary and sentence structures by exposing the
children to language in varied, memorable and familiar contexts, which will enrich their
thinking and gradually enter their own speech. Children who read daily over long
periods of time is better on measure of vocabulary, comprehension and decoding ability
than did children in the control groups who were not read to by an adult.

Through stories and activities social skills such as cooperation, collaboration,
listening and turn taking can be developed too.
Activities used during reading stories also play an important role in childrens
motivation. Especially diversity of activities helps the teacher keep children motivated
and makes the lesson unpredictable. Good language activities have no age limits, an
idea which works with five-year-olds will, with some minor adaptations in content and
presentation, probably work equally well with much older learners.

Pre-story activities usually play an important role as they help to introduce the topic
to learners, to identify what the learners know about it, help to encourage topical
thinking and to be more active and interested in participating in the lesson.
While reading a story it is important to go back and ask a child questions in order
to check his understanding and give him a chance to predict the story. Asking such kind
of questions improves both speaking and thinking in a target language.
After activities such as: information gaps, questionnaires and surveys, guessing
games, matching, sequencing, retelling the story, writing a letter, role play, etc. provide
children with the practice of using the target language.

A teacher can employ a lot of ways in teaching process. The extent to which the instruction is successful
depends significantly on the way or methodology employed and the teachers alertness to the potential
problems that are likely to arise during instruction. The scope of the teachers pedagogical creativity
encompasses consideration of both the factors. Language teaching seems to have been switching its focus
from one method to a supposedly more effective one during the last century so that students are more profi-
cient in the target language. As time passes new problems in learning English are uncovered and new
solutions are suggested. Azeri learners of English have common problems mainly due to the grammatical
differences between Azerbaijani and English. I think the role of metalinguistic awareness on the part of
learners and teachers is dependable in overcoming such problems. On the basis of my observations first as a
learner and then a teacher of English, I can definitely tell that students with more metalinguistic awareness
are more successful in learning a second language.
Key words: method, metalingiuistic awareness, problem, teacher creativity.

There are many methods of teaching in education in general. Teaching methods
can be defined as the types of principles and ways used for instruction. Class participation,
demonstration, explaining, recitation, and memorization are good examples. When a
teacher is deciding on a method, he or she needs to be flexible and willing to adjust the
style according to the students. Student success in the classroom depends largely on
effective teaching methods. As for language teaching, being a main part of pedagogy,
it employs three main concepts: approach, method and technique. Approach embodies
theories about the nature of language and language teaching. Method is an overall plan
for presenting teaching process, that is, a teaching plan. Technique represents a procedure
or tactic to obtain an immediate objective. New words, some grammatical rule are good
examples of such objectives. The way a student learns a new item is a technique. A
method employs a lot of techniques for teaching language items. During the twentieth
century many methods were used in language teaching. For example, Grammar-trans-
lation method, Silent way, Situational learning etc. Still, new problems turn out to be
present in language teaching, which means the various methods created as yet are not
sufficient. Over time most of them proved very difficult to apply and with almost no
empirical value. In the 1990s the term post methods era was sometimes used.
Absent from the traditional view of methods are learner-centeredness and teacher
creativity. Practicality is a key issue in language teaching. A methodology that can readily
be turned into teaching materials and textbooks and whose use requires no special
training is valuable in terms of making successful language learners (Richards and
A good way to start developing a language teaching process is to look at ourselves
and to explore to what extent our second language teaching has been influenced by our
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2

own language learning and language teaching experiences. Some background events
that can be expected to influence our way of teaching are likely to include: a) our infor-
mal language learning (first, second language) b) the way we were taught languages
at school and how we responded to such teaching c)other formal or informal second
language learning experiences as an adult (Stern H.1991)
The aim of my paper is to enlarge teacher creativity. A person teaching English to
native speakers of Azerbaijani should be alert to hindrances resulting from the grammatical
differences between the two languages. The hindrances are usual for almost any learner
of English whose first language is Azerbaijani. As a learner and a teacher of English
whose native language is Azerbaijani I observe such hindrances very often. I would
like to enumerate some of them below:
1. Prepositional phrases used as attributive adjectives. For example:
a. The books on the green table are all about African countries.
b. I didnt like the buildings around Baku
c. The shop at the corner of the street sells clothes from Germany.
Because of the interference of Azerbaijani, elementary level learners tend to incor-
rectly build the sentences like the following often with the omission of articles:
a. On the green table the books are all about African countries.
b. I didnt like around Baku the buildings.
c. At corner of the street shop sells from Germany clothes.
2. Articles. Azerbaijani has no article so at first, learners take this part of speech as
strange and a burden to learn. Moreover, most of times it requires no direct translation,
this ,in turn, makes matters complicated for learners(if they dont know another
language with articles, like German). I will try to illuminate the problem in the
following examples:
My teacher has got a new computer. The computer is very heavy.
The dog is a faithful animal.
It is difficult to explain why we use a and the instead of it in the first example. And,
why the second sentence uses first the, then a requires skill and patience for explanation.
3. There is/There are expressions. To build a sentence with the expressions a new
learner has structural problems. The following sentence has a reversed structure in
Azebaijani translation:
English sentence ; There are(1) two pens in my pocket(2).
Its Azerbaijani translation; Cibimd(2) iki qlm var(1).
4. The place of prepositions in expressions or sentences. They come before related
words, I mean, in pre-position but their equivalents in Azerbaijani come in post-
position such as:
English sentence; I saw a lot of animals in Australia.
Azerbaijani translation; Avstraliyada oxlu heyvan grdm.
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
The preposition in in the English sentence comes in front of the related word
Australia. By contrast, in the Azerbaijani one its equivalent da comes after the related
word Avstraliya. Putting the preposition to the correct place in an English sentence
is a great feat.
5. Word order. It is obvious that the general structure of sentence elements in English
is like this: SUBJECT + PREDICATE+OBJECT + ADVERBIAL. In Azerbaijani
the order is very different: SUBBJECT+OBJECT+ADVERBIAL+PREDICATE.
Thus a learner should avoid the danger of interference.
6. Countability and uncountability of English nouns. The relationship between whether
a noun is countable or uncountable and article use in expressions.
The points in 5 and 6 are easy to understand that is why I didnt give example sen-
tences. So far, I have discussed the hindrances or problems usually faced by elementary
learners of English, whose first language is Azerbaijani. For upper levels also, there
are such adaptation problems. For example:
7. Functions of modal verbs, especially the secondary ones. Students often get confused
about different functions of modal verbs. One example from my learning experience:
I saw a presentation like the following table in Longman English Grammar
Secondary function of modals is expressing degrees of certainty.
You might could may should ought to must will be right.
very uncertain

almost certain
You are right. certain
Then I made it clear for myself why modal verbs are sometimes used unusually.
It turned out, for instance, that John should be at home now is another way of telling
Probably, John is at home now.
8. English has a vast store of words, a lot of synonyms. This fact sometimes discourages
students and makes them impatient in learning. A teacher has got to give explanations
for this fact by for example, talking a little about styles in language.
There are a lot of other problems worth considering. Azerbaijani and English are
quite different languages. The difference is both convenient and inconvenient for learning
English. Conveniently English possesses much fewer grammatical suffixes or prefixes
than Azerbaijani, and this saves us from memorizing a lot of grammatical burden for
speaking English normally. The problems I have dealt with in this article are signs of
the inconvenient facet.
As for the solutions to the problems, I think the development of students metalinguis-
tic abilities is necessary because in order to explain the problems to students a teacher
benefit from metalanguage. Metalanguage generally means the use of language to
describe and discuss itself. This is the property of human language which is also called
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
reflexivity (Yule.1996).Students with more metalinguistic awareness succeed more in
learning English. This helps learners generalize where necessary, know how and when
to use grammatical rules in building English sentences etc. For example: a learner should
be able to generalize words as nouns, verbs, adjectives etc. to put them in correct order
in sentences. It can be a source of curiosity about the target language: one day a student
of mine asked about the formation of English participles. He knows about the form of
Azerbaijani participles and this makes him interested in the English counterpart. For
teachers it is a convenience. Imagine a teacher explains the use of present simple in time
and conditional clauses. He can write a lot of sample sentences on the board to explain it,
but instead, he can rely on the students metalinguistic abilities and tell that in time and
conditional clauses present simple is used with reference to the future. The latter is a
shortcut in the teaching process. Metalanguage use can be identified as an element of
the supposedly unsuccessful Grammar-Translation method. But if it is discussed for the
sake of facilitating teaching, not for its own sake, it is beneficial.
As the last point of my paper, there can be shortcomings in my observations and
suggestionss because I do not possess a sound knowledge of pedagogy or human psy-
chology. I am still learning English as a foreign language and whatever I suggest for
facilitation in teaching is ultimately based on my own experiences as a teacher and a
learner.That is why I think them reliable and valuable.

Given the rapidly increasing number of Arabic-speaking students in U.S. public schools, English as
a second language (ESL) and bilingual teachers need to be cognizant of sociolinguistic, historical and
cultural considerations affecting the educational needs of these students and their families. This paper
April 27, 2012 Qafqaz University, Baku, Azerbaijan
provides relevant information which will assist teachers to develop sensitivity and understanding of this
unique language-minority population. I hope that this material will help the teachers determine how to
structure the curriculum better, pinpoint transfer pitfalls between English and Arabic, enhance students
social integration and accelerate their acquisition of English.
Key words: English Arabic, culture, linguistic, human relations.

One of the regions of the world most affected by political unrest and turmoil is the
Middle East. The increasing population of Arabic- speaking students in the American
schools has become a reality that merits attention. The purpose of this paper is to share
cultural and linguistic information with bilingual and ESL teachers to enable them to
promote intercultural understanding and facilitate the acquisition of English as a second
language. Arabs live within the borders of over twenty nations throughout the Middle
East, North Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula. Nevertheless, to avoid offending many
Arabs, [ teachers ] would be prudent to use the singular Arab nation instead of the
plural Arab nations in [ their ] conversations with the Arabs in acknowledgement
of their shared language , religion and culture. Although 90 percent of the more than
160 million Arabic- speakers in the region are Muslim, there are also many Arab Jews
and Chiristians. Minorities are identified by either religion or language. Some examples
of non- Arabs are Kurds, Druze, Copts, Assyrians and Berbers.
There is great pride and prestige associated with the Arabic language. Arabic is
the language one of the worlds great civilizations, and one to which the West has been
profoundly indebted for over a millennium in fields as diverse as mathematics, chemistry,
geography and philosophy. Not only is it the language of the Holy Koran, but it is a
language which enjoys wide usage in the creation of great literature and poetry, as well
as having influenced Spanish greatly through 700 years of presence in Spain. One
example of the love and respect for the written word was the care and attention given
to libraries during Arab period in Spain. In one of Cordobas 70 libraries, for example,
400,000 books were collected.
Geographic proximity allows for the common bond of language to remain strong
despite variations in the spoken language among people of varying regions and natio-
nalities. Children commonly grow up with sense of bilingualism in that they aware of
these regional dialectical differences and how the standart written forms differ from their
spoken dialects. This experience with Arabic can be helpful as students are introduced
to English.
Arabic is different from English is many ways. Problems ranging from phonological
to morphological and structural difficulties that face Arabic speaking students while
learning English have been well- documented. There are unique aspects of the Arabic
language which pose special transfer problems with English which have pedagogical
implications for ESL teaching and curriculum design.

When teaching English to Arabic- speakers some linguistic considerations should
be kept in mind: First , the writing system goes from right to left . The way the letters
are written depends upon their position in Arabic words. The orthographies of both
languages are different and tend to pose difficulty in pronunciation and spelling. Some
Modern Approaches in English Language and Literature 2
International Young Researchers Conference
sounds in English do not exist in Arabic: an example is the substitution of the b for
a p ( beople ) compination . Arabic does not have two distinctive bilabial plo-
sives, only the voiced /b/ and hypercorrected spelling that represents both b and p
as p. There are no written vowels. Diacritics are used instead to indicate vowels.
Second, recognizing syntactinc differences between English and Arabic can guide
ESL teachers and help them deal with transfer problems effectively. ESL teachers should
train their students to make linguistic adjustments when learning English. For example
they should make it clear that word order (e.g. Dead sea vs. sea dead), language typology
(Ali goes to school vs. goes Ali to school), structural patterns (thats the teacher whom I
met vs. Thats the the teacher whom I met him) are different in both languages.
Most importantly, the sociolinguistic aspects of Arabic differ from those of English.
Some these features usually transfer to English inappropriate manner. For example, the
depth of questioning about family affairs, health and other private matters are culturally
incompatible. Jokes are also culture bound; what is humorous to an Arab might be
outrageous to an American and vice versa.
Finally, written discourse of Arab ESL learners is dependent on the Arabic logic
and cultural thought patterns. The rhetoric of a tightly organized, logical presentation
of ideas is as foreign to Arab students as English itself. On other hand, English rhetoric
is often construed as cold and highly impersonal rather than embellished as is the elite
style of literary Arabic
