IMMERSION COMPTABLE S02E01 - BENOIT BOBIS 1/2 «Nous sommes des linguistes de la langue comptable»
Hello à vous ! Je suis ravie de vous retrouver pour cette 2ème saison d'Immersion Comptable. Le mois prochain, ça fera un an que j'ai lancé Immersion Comptable alors je me suis dit que ça sera bien de le faire évoluer. J'ai donc pris en compte une de vos remarques. Beaucoup d'entre vous m'ont dit que le format d'Immersion Comptable est trop long. Du coup, je vais essayer de raccourcir les épisodes quand ça sera possible, quitte à les faire en deux parties comme je l'ai fait pour celui de Sabrina SABBAH PAGES (épisode 3 de la saison 1). Je profite de cette introduction pour remercier Lionel BROILLIARD, Compta Online et les Editions Législatives pour leurs posts sur Linkedin. Ca me touche vraiment et ça me motive pour continuer Immersion Comptable. Dans ce premier épisode de la saison 2 d'Immersion Comptable, j'ai une conversation avec Benoît BOBIS expert-comptable et commissaire aux comptes dans le sud ouest de la France chez Lempereur et Associés. Benoît est un vrai passionné par ce qu'il fait et vous entendrez qu'on le ressent très bien tout au long de l'épisode. Il dit que les professionnels comptables sont des linguistes de la langue comptable. Nous sommes donc des traducteurs de comptabilité vers français et inversement. J'aime beaucoup cette approche de notre profession car ça résume bien notre quotidien. J'ai coupé l'enregistrement en deux parties pour ne pas que ce soit trop long. Dans cette première partie, Benoît nous parle de son parcours professionnel et de la profession comptable. Je vous promets que j'ai essayé de réduire la durée mais quand on est passionné par quelque chose on pourrait parler pendant des heures et c'est bien le cas de Benoît.

What is linguistic discrimination?
Do you really know?
What is linguistic discrimination? Thanks for asking! Also known as glottophobia, linguistic discrimination is a form of prejudice based on a person’s way of speaking. For example, it could consist of mocking someone for their mother tongue, accent, or the range of vocabulary they use. Victims of linguistic discrimination are judged and treated differently as soon as they open their mouths. Studies into linguistic discrimination date back to the 1980s. Researchers noted the difficulties that non-native-English speakers encountered at work in the United States.Linguistic discrimination is also seen as one of the main factors in turning down a candidate for a job. Sometimes, this form of discrimination is even more brutal. In some cases in China, ethnic minorities are forced to abandon their languages. Similar policies were carried out by colonialists in past centuries, like the British Empire in Ireland, Wales and Scotland. But why would anyone reject people based on their accent? An accent or dialect are an important part of a person’s identity. He sounds foreign, she sounds like she’s from the countryside, he doesn’t sound well-educated etc. Traditionally, accents heard on the TV and radio have been held in higher esteem. In the UK, 28% of people feel they have suffered discrimination due to having a regional accent. Across the Channel in France, linguistic discrimination is worst for those from the north of the country, but those with strong southern accents aren’t spared. Back in 2018, politician Jean-Luc Melenchon openly mocked a journalist from Toulouse for her southwestern accent in front of TV cameras. MP Laetitia Avia then proposed a new law recognising glottophobia as a form of discrimination, but the idea ended up being abandoned. So if you have a strong accent, should you see a speech therapist to mask it? In under 3 minutes, we answer your questions! To listen the last episodes, you can click here: What is consent?

48: Who you are in high school, linguistically speaking - Interview with Shivonne Gates
Lingthusiasm - A podcast that's enthusiastic about linguistics
High school is a time when people really notice small social details, such as how you dress or what vowels you’re using. Making choices from among these various factors is a big way that we assert our identities as we’re growing up. For a particular group of students in the UK, they’re on the forefront of linguistic innovation using a variety known as Multicultural London English. In this episode, your host Lauren Gawne interviews Dr. Shivonne Gates, a linguist who wrote her dissertation on Multicultural London English and is currently a Senior Researcher at NatCen Social Research, Britain’s largest independent social research agency. We talk about her research on accents in the UK, doing collaborative research with young people, and linguistics research jobs outside of academia. This month’s bonus episode is about pangrams! Pangrams are sentences that contain all of the letters of the alphabet, like the famous "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" and the more obscure "Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow!". In this episode, Gretchen and Lauren get enthusiastic about pangrams and the further questions that they raise about the structure of various languages. How short can you get an English pangram without becoming incoherent? Which characters are hard to include in different languages? Do accented characters count as separate letters? What kinds of using-every-symbol writing can you make with non-alphabetic writing systems? Announcements: We have teamed up with Crash Course to write the 16 video series Crash Course Linguistics. We’re so excited to share this course with you!

Context Is Everything: Linguistic Context: 1 Samuel 13:14
Dr. John Walton, Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College Graduate School, lays out the importance of knowing the context of a passage to understand it. After discussing four kinds of context for exegesis, he focuses on the linguistic context. As a test case, he takes us to 1 Samuel 13:14: “the LORD sought out a man after his own heart [David].” What does that mean? Where does it come from? It might not mean what we always thought.
An Agent-based model of the gradual emergence of modern linguistic complexity
PaperPlayer biorxiv animal behavior and cognition
Link to bioRxiv paper: http://biorxiv.org/cgi/content/short/2020.11.12.380683v1?rss=1 Authors: Ruland, M., Andirko, A., Romanowska, I., Boeckx, C. Abstract: A central question in the evolution of human language is whether it emerged as a result of one specific event or from a mosaic-like constellation of different phenomena and their interactions. Three potential processes have been identified by recent research as the potential primum mobile for the origins of modern linguistic complexity: Self-domestication, characterized by a reduction in reactive aggression and often associated with a gracilization of the face; changes in early brain development manifested by globularization of the skull; and demographic expansion of H.~sapiens during the Middle Pleistocene. We developed an agent-based model to investigate how these three factors influence transmission of information within a population. Our model shows that there is an optimal degree of both hostility and mental capacity at which the amount of transmitted information is the largest. It also shows that linguistic communities formed within the population are strongest under circumstances where individuals have high levels of cognitive capacity available for information processing and there is at least a certain degree of hostility present. In contrast, we find no significant effects related to population size. Copy rights belong to original authors. Visit the link for more info

The impact of second language immersion: Evidence from a bi-directional longitudinal cross-linguistic study
PaperPlayer biorxiv neuroscience
Link to bioRxiv paper: http://biorxiv.org/cgi/content/short/2020.09.25.311944v1?rss=1 Authors: Brice, H., Frost, S., Bick, A. S., Molfese, P. J., Rueckl, J., Pugh, K., Frost, R. Abstract: Brice et al. (2019) presented data from the first epoch of a longitudinal study of the neurobiological underpinnings of first-language (L1) and second-language (L2) processing. Results showed a similar network of activation for reading across L1 and L2, as well as significant convergence of print and speech processing across a network of left-hemisphere regions in both L1 and L2 with greater activation and convergence for L2 in anterior regions, and greater activation and convergence for L1 in posterior regions of the reading network. Here, we present the first look at longitudinal changes in these effects. L2 showed relatively few changes in activation, with some shifts in the weighting between ventral and dorsal processing. L1, however, showed more widespread differences in processing, suggesting...

Valley girls. Culture vultures. WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TALKING. Alie battles traffic to sit down with linguistics professor Dr. Nicole Holliday about intonational phonology: how tones and pitch help us bond with others and construct identities. Inspired in part by former President Barack Obama's masterful linguistic variability, Dr. Holliday's work focuses on how language is used in the crossing and construction of racial/ethnic boundaries. She graciously fielded tons of questions for a fascinating dive into the nuances and strict grammatical rules of African American Language, cultural appropriation, our educational system, honoring your identity, what not to wear in Paris and the roiling debate over who is the best rapper.
