A vivid commentary on Jewish survival and Jewish speech communities that will be enjoyed by the general reader, and is essential reading for students and researchers interested in the study of Middle Eastern languages, Jewish studies, and sociolinguistics.
Plagiarism and intellectual property law are two issues that affect every student
and every teacher throughout the world. Both concepts are concerned with how
we use texts - print, digital, visual, and aural - in the creation of new texts. And
both have been viewed in strongly moral terms, often as acts of 'theft'. However,
they also reflect the contradictory views behind norms and values and therefore
are essential to understand when using all forms of texts both inside and
outside the classroom. This book discusses the current and historical
relationship between these concepts and how they can be explicitly taught in an
academic writing classroom.
