What is the value of languages in the UK? — Cambridge Language Sciences

It stretches from enabling economic growth and prosperity through the language and communication skills required to enable UK business to participate in the global market place; to the ‘soft power’ and diplomatic skills through which the UK’s role and authority in foreign policy is manifested; to enhancing the cultural capital, educational attainment and social cohesion within England and the devolved communities of the UK both now and in the future.

A new report by Cambridge Public Policy draws on discussions held at a workshop in Cambridge in October 2015 to discuss strategic issues in which languages play a part: national security, diplomacy and conflict resolution, community and social cohesion, migration and identity.

These resources have been designed to provide a range of materials to support students who are studying practical phonetics on programmes in Linguistics and Speech and Language Pathology.

IPA Online - Newcastle University

By practical phonetics we refer to the listening and transcription skills which characterise any practical or field application of descriptive phonetic theory. A key part of acquiring such skills involves being able to make use of the symbols in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) to visually represent the range of the sounds produced by the human vocal tract. These resources focus on the necessary sound-to-symbol mapping and provide extensive exemplification of the sounds captured by the IPA. We hope they will be of value to anyone learning or teaching the IPA!

Our world is full of symbols, and we are all surrounded by symbols and signs every hour of every day. Our brains constantly use signs and symbols to access mental shortcuts. These shortcuts allow us to simplify and manage the world in all its complexity. For brands, these shortcuts are important to how customers perceive category and brand identities. Once established, such identities are hard to disrupt. 11 Brand Colours and their Meanings “There is no model; there is only colour” - Paul Cezanne Earlier this month, Cadbury lost the fight to fully trademark their distinctive purple colour (although it is uniquely theirs for chocolate).

Colours are powerful weapons in any branding toolkit and rich with meanings.

The principle of linguistic relativity holds that the structure of a language affects the ways in which its respective speakers conceptualize their world, i.e. their world view, or otherwise influences their cognitive processes.

Linguistic relativity

Popularly known as the Sapir–Whorf hypothesis, or Whorfianism, the principle is often defined to include two versions: Strong version: that language determines thought and that linguistic categories limit and determine cognitive categoriesWeak version: that linguistic categories and usage influence thought and certain kinds of non-linguistic behaviour. The term "Sapir–Whorf hypothesis" is a misnomer, because Edward Sapir and Benjamin Lee Whorf never co-authored anything, and never stated their ideas in terms of a hypothesis.

Symbols, Signs, Metaphors and Meanings. “Culture is the collective programming of the mind.” - Geert Hofstede A world of symbols What makes us all so interesting to researchers and marketers is our enquiring mind, and nothing shows this more vividly than the web of beliefs and ideas that we have created to make meaning from the complexity of the world around us.

A very important part of this framework is the vocabulary of signs and symbols that help remind us of our link to the world and each other. Signs are quite straightforward in their function of providing a visual language to help us understand the dangers ahead on the road, the feelings of a friend or the key benefits of a brand (signs are mainly but not always visual and may also be communicated through other senses). Symbols are more complex as they may represent a more abstract idea. The symbol above is Ankh, also known as the key of life, which represented eternal life to the ancient Egyptians.
