The World-Readiness Standards (The National Standards Collaborative Board, 2015) and the Can-Do Statements (ACTFL, 2017) promote intercultural competence and understanding through relating cultural products to perspectives and practices.

Deppermann, Arnulf; Schmidt, Axel – Discourse Processes: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2021
Our study deals with early bodily responses to directives (requests and instructions, i.e., second pair parts [SPPs]) produced before the first pair part (FPP) is complete. We show how early bodily SPPs build on the properties of an emerging FPP. Our focus is on the successive incremental coordination of components of the FPP with components of…

Cyron, Laura; Mehrotra, Rahul – Education Economics, 2022
We analyze the 2007 European financial crisis' impact on the demand for new language skills. The crisis affected German-speaking regions less. Learning German became relatively more attractive for migration and trade. We construct a sub-national database for German as a foreign language exam (TestDaF) participation rates between 2001-2013 and…

Schindler, Julia; Richter, Tobias; Mar, Raymond – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2021
Generated information is better recognized and recalled than information that is read. This so-called "generation effect" has been replicated several times for different types of material, including texts. Perhaps the most influential demonstration was by McDaniel et al. (1986, "Journal of Memory and Language," 25, 645-656;…

As a play that showcases theater as a transitional space where…

Helmer, Henrike – Discourse Processes: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2020
To secure mutual understanding in interaction, speakers sometimes explain or negotiate expressions. Adopting a conversation analytic and interaction linguistic approach, I examine how participants explain which kinds of expressions in different sequential environments, using the format "x heißt y" ("x means y"). When speakers…

Kupisch, Tanja; Mitrofanova, Natalia; Westergaard, Marit – Journal of Child Language, 2022
We investigate German-Russian bilingual children's sensitivity to formal and semantic cues when assigning gender to nouns in German. Across languages, young children have been shown to primarily rely on phonological cues, whereas sensitivity to semantic and syntactic cues increases with age. With its semi-transparent gender assignment system,…

Cooper, Gabriel – Unterrichtspraxis/Teaching German, 2020
In the interest of fostering a socially critical and inclusive German Studies, this article urges instructors to pursue curricular reforms to diversify and decolonize German curricula at colleges and universities. While the literary canon's centrality to the German major has tended to leave monolithic impressions of "Germany" and…

Rissman, Lilia; van Putten, Saskia; Majid, Asifa – Cognitive Science, 2022
At conceptual and linguistic levels of cognition, events are said to be represented in terms of abstract categories, for example, the sentence "Jackie cut the bagel with a knife" encodes the categories Agent (i.e., "Jackie") and Patient (i.e., "the bagel"). In this paper, we ask whether entities such as "the…

Schwab, Juliane; Xiang, Ming; Liu, Mingya – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
Antilocality effects provide strong evidence for expectation-based sentence parsing models. Previous discussion of the antilocality effect, however, largely focused on the argument-verb dependencies in verb-final constructions, for which a memory retrieval-based account has been argued to be equally adequate. To test whether the principles of…

This chapter argues for the integration of public engagement into language teaching in order to respond to the current challenging environment for language study.

Rucker, Thomas – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
In this article, I propose a systematization of various aspects of Bildung-supportive teaching, as described in the context of German-language general didactics. I start by describing teaching as the basic form of education in which one person helps another to acquire knowledge. I then clarify the concept of Bildung. It is suggested that Bildung…

Lewandowski, Wojciech; Özçaliskan, Seyda – Studies in Second Language Acquisition, 2021
Speakers show cross-linguistic differences in expressing placement events involving support (cup on table) and containment (apple in bowl) in first language (L1) contexts. They rely on either more-general (e.g., Spanish for support, Polish for containment) or more-specific (e.g., German, Polish for support; Spanish, German for containment)…
