  • Gitksan phonotactics

    Brown, Jason (2010)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    This work presents an analysis of the phonotactics of Gitksan, a Tsimshianic language spoken in northern British Columbia, Canada, and is based on an electronic lexical database of the language compiled by the author. The results of this study reveal that Gitksan exhibits several gradient phonological restrictions on consonantal cooccurrence that hold over the lexicon. There is a gradient restriction on homorganic consonants, and within homorganic pairs, there is a gradient restriction on major class and manner features. It is claimed that these restrictions are due to a generalized Obligatory Contour Principle (OCP) effect in the grammar, and that this effect can be relativized to subsidiary features, such as place, manner, etc. It is argued that these types of effects are most naturally analyzed with the system of weighted constraints employed in Harmonic Grammar. In addition to these dissimilatory effects, it is also claimed that Gitksan exhibits a gradient assimilatory effect among specific consonants. This type of effect is rare, and is unexpected given the general conditions of dissimilation in the language. One such effect is the frequency of both pulmonic pairs of consonants and ejective pairs of consonants, which occur at rates higher than expected by chance. Another is the occurrence of uvular-uvular and velar-velar pairs of consonants, which also occur at rates higher than chance. This pattern is somewhat surprising, as there exists an overall gradient prohibition on cooccurring pairs of dorsal consonants. These assimilatory patterns are analyzed using the Agreement by Correspondence approach, which mandates that output correspondents agree for some phonological feature. The analysis presented in this work has implications for other areas of the phonology of Gitksan, and for phonological theory generally. These areas include the representation of laryngeal features and of the "guttural" class of consonants, the learnability of gradient patterns, and the role that constraints play in both dissimilatory and assimilatory effects.

  • At the Crossroads of Crisis and Opportunity: Interdisciplinary Conversations

    (2015)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Can crises and opportunities truly go hand in hand? The twelve chapters in this interdisciplinary collection provide a number of telling perspectives and conversational approaches that reflect upon the serious implications of this important question. They overwhelmingly agree that difficult crises events inevitably force individuals and societies to crossroads in their lives where they must make challenging personal and collective choices. Nonetheless, they also confirm that even faced with apparently new terrain and the confusing cartography of discomforting change there are unique and opportune pathways of response that can lead to positive developmental destinations. Attending to this question from the personal, communal, and international perspectives, in dialogue, academics and practitioners from around the globe interrogate this possibility linking the threads between the processes and conditions in which opportunities borne of crises might flounder or be assisted to flourish.

  • Religious Worlds of the Laity in Late Antique Gaul

    Bailey, Lisa (2016-04-07)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Christianity in the late antique world was not imposed but embraced, and the laity were not passive members of their religion but had a central role in its creation. This volume explores the role of the laity in Gaul, bringing together the fields of history, archaeology and theology. First, this book follows the ways in which clergy and monks tried to shape and manufacture lay religious experience. They had themselves constructed the category of 'the laity', which served as a negative counterpart to their self-definition. Lay religious experience was thus shaped in part by this need to create difference between categories. The book then focuses on how the laity experienced their religion, how they interpreted it and how their decisions shaped the nature of the Church and of their faith. This part of the study pays careful attention to the diversity of the laity in this period, their religious environments, ritual engagement, behaviours, knowledge and beliefs.The first volume to examine laity in this period in Gaul – a key region for thinking about the transition from Roman rule to post-Roman society – The Religious Worlds of the Laity in Late Antique Gaul fills an important gap in current literature.

  • Chronic illness: the temporal thief

    Jowsey, Tanisha (2016-06-29)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Chronic illness is experienced in and through time. As the term ‘chronic’ suggests, the chronically ill body is one that reorients itself to the ways in which time is perceived, experienced and used, in a multiply of ways. New practices are developed and routines are established to manage chronic illness in personal and social contexts. As rhythms of bodily life change one’s expectations for the future might change, and their relations with other people (who have their own temporal rhythms) might also change. Meanings attributed to past and present experiences and practices, as well as future plans and imaginings, acquire new significance with chronic illness. For many people, chronic illness is experienced as a thief, stealing their imagined futures. Through public health and anthropological lenses this book investigates intersections between chronic illness and time.

  • Private Pensions in New Zealand: Can they Avert the 'Crisis'?

    St John, S; Ashton, Toni (1993)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    The past five years have been a turbulent time for superannuation policy in New Zealand. This is nothing new. In the post-war period, there have been a number of dramatic changes as outlined in the earlier book by the authors, Superannuation in New Zealand, Averting the Crisis. What seems to be different in the early nineties is a sense of urgency, a need to end the policy instability and create certainty in the face of the impending demographic pressures. In many ways, New Zealand is very unusual with a tax neutral savings regime for private pensions and a non-contributory flat-rate state pension. As in other countries, there has been a strong move to encourage a shift away from state provision to take the 'burden' off workers of the future. The economic thinking behind this suggestion needs careful review. rather than assuming a shift will solve the problem, this book sets out a broader context in which all forms of public and private mixes can be evaluated against society's chosen income distribution objectives. This book was written during the period in which the government- appointed Task Force on Private Provision for Retirement was deliberating on how best to encourage greater self-reliance of retired people. The aim of this book is to contribute to the debate on the recommendations of the Task Force and to provide an historical and international context for that debate.

  • Enacting self-study as methodology for professional inquiry

    (2016-07-30)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Enacting self-study as methodology for professional inquiry captures our individual and collective quests to deepen our understanding of the complex practices of teaching about teaching. Self-study methodology has transcended political and cultural boundaries to enhance understanding of “other”, crossed table and coffee conversations to deepen appreciation within institutions, supported teachers transitioning from classrooms to university, sustained mid-career academics to achieve new appreciation for the complexity of their roles, and enthused experienced academics to reflect on their expertise and question anew what it is to be a self-studying professional. In this edited collection, the Self-Study of Teacher Education Practices (S-STEP) community share how they have explored and probed their own understanding of how they might better teach student teachers to teach. The chapters are loosely grouped around the themes of enactment, discovery, inclusivity, and application. Enacting self-study as methodology for professional inquiry is a text written by international scholars to enhance the conversations and understandings associated with this methodology and to support the 11th International Conference on Self-Study of Teacher Education Practices held at Herstmonceux Castle, East Sussex, England in July-August 2016.
