Language and literacies in the early English language classroom

Alexia Giannakopoulou
The purpose of this paper is to link theory and practice regarding the English for Young Learners (EYL) curriculum in the early grades of the Greek primary school, and provide a synthesis of findings from existing studies carried out mainly by teachers, who have the potential, as inside participants, to look into the educational experiences in ways that are not always apparent to those who look from the outside. The first part of the paper...

A definitional task consisting of 16 items (4 concrete nouns, 4 abstract nouns, 4 adjectives and 4 verbs) was used. The aim was to check the ability of Greek preschoolers to provide definitions, to investigate how nouns (concrete vs. abstract), verbs and adjectives compare in definitional style and finally to compare the definitional ability of...

SELF-REGULATED LEARNING AND READING COMPREHENSION: THE EFFECTS OF GENDER, MOTIVATION AND METACOGITION

Ioannis Katsantonis
The study aimed at determining the effects of aspects of self-regulated learning (SRL) such as metacognition and motivation on reading comprehension. A nationwide, representative sample (N = 6,403) of 15-year-old Greek adolescents was drawn from the PISA 2018 database. The participants’ data on metacognitive knowledge of reading strategies, reading task-specific metacognitive experiences, intrinsic motivation, and reading comprehension were selected for subsequent analyses. Multiple-group confirmatory factor analyses were conducted to test gender differences in metacognitive functioning...

Smell of Sweat, Smell of Semen: The Divinisation of Body Fluids in Patriarch Methodius' Life of Theophanes of Agros

Dirk Krausmüller
This article makes the case that Patriarch Methodius’ Life of Theophanes is not a straightforward hagiographical narrative but a vehicle for theological and anthropological speculation. Focusing on the description of a miracle – the appearance of divine sweet smell in the room where Theophanes and his wife perform ascetic activities – it argues that the sweat of the couple become the locus for a divine manifestation, and that it is at the same time a...

Oral reading fluency and phonics-based introduction to literacy for young EFL learners

Nikos Tsiadimos
Oral Reading Fluency has consistently been found to correlate positively with overall Reading Competence and predict benefits in Reading Comprehension. There exists a host of studies which report advantages in oral reading fluency for young native English learners who have been introduced to literacy through systematic phonics approaches as well as some which show benefits for EFL learners. The current research sets to confirm findings concerning the supremacy of the phonics approach in the context...

Practices and views of a language teacher and a subject specialist in teaching English for engineers

Eleni Agathopoulou & Vasiliki Kasiakogia
Research in English for Specific Academic Purposes (ESAP) concerning differences between language teachers and subject specialists has been scarce and focused on the role of subject-specific knowledge in the interpretation and/or the pedagogical exploitation of academic texts. In the present study we compared a regular ESAP teacher with a chemical engineer, both of them teaching English for Engineers in Greek tertiary education institutes at the time. The rather rare occurrence of the latter type of...

Anna Mylona & Evrinomy Avdi
This exploratory study aimed to deepen our understanding of relational and embodied processes implicated in psychotherapy, by examining the association of alliance ruptures with therapeutic dyad’s autonomic arousal during psychotherapy sessions. A central assumption of the study was that the therapeutic alliance is a core and dynamic aspect of therapy process, shaped by the mutual influence of therapist and client on both verbal/explicit and embodied/implicit levels. The research material consisted of 12 video-recorded sessions drawn...

Carcerals and Olympic Masculinities in Christos Tsiolkas’s Barracuda

Panos Gerakis
In an effort to draw attention to the masculine crisis occurring in the era of globalisation, this paper elaborates on Australian author Christos Tsiolkas’s novel Barracuda and the central character’s self-discipline and struggle into reaching Olympic achievement. The course of his rise as a potential Olympic athlete but also his fall and crisis within an institutional framework of disciplines, which often symbolically turn into nightmarish prisons, resonate with Michel Foucault’s 1975 work Discipline and Punish....

The Language of the Emotion of LOVE in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet: Conceptual Metaphors, Metonymies and their Interactions

Alexandra Christakidou
This paper presents the complexities of the linguistic expressions of the domain of LOVE in William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Emphasis is placed on conceptual metaphors and metonymies, and especially on their interactions. The theoretical framework that has been used as a guide for this study is that of Cognitive Linguistics, and more specifically its branch called Cognitive Poetics. The conclusion of this study is that clear-cut distinctions between the two cognitive processes (i.e. metaphor...

Modality vs. Chordal Harmony: Hybrid Aspects of Rebetiko During the Interwar Period

Spiros Th. Delegos
This paper addresses the contribution of modality, chordal harmony and the relationship between them to the formulation of ‘Rebetiko’ –a musical genre of Greek Urban Popular Music– during the interwar period. The aim of the research is to show the hybrid character of Rebetiko through the analysis of the confrontation between the makam modality and an idiosyncratic form of chordal harmony, transcending the typical East-West dipole. After having listened to a large corpus of gramophone...

Addressing the Modality of Church Melodies, According to the Variety in the Choice of the Isokratema. Case Studies

Symeon Kanakis
This paper aims to investigate the phenomenon of heterophony in Byzantine chant, exploring the technique of isokratema and how the modality of a melody can be affected by the selection of an isokratematic note (bordun tone). Specific examples of whole melodies or melodic phrases are examined by using respectively two or more versions of isokratema. These versions come either from recordings of isokratema in church melodies or voice recordings from in and out of the...

Musical Interpretations of Medea’s Myth in the 21st Century

Andriana Soulele
During the first decade of the 2000s, Medea’s myth was revived numerous times on the operatic stage. Among several scenic works, we chose to refer to three French operas which, despite their differences, share some common features: Médée de Thessalonique by Christophe Looten (2001), Médée by Michèle Reverdy (2003) and Medea by Pascal Dusapin (2007), a choreographed version of the composer’s opera Medeamaterial (originally written in 1992) by Sasha Waltz. These operas display a contemporary...

\"Dance Music\" in Byzantium and the Balkans

Angeliki Liveri
This paper will present a selection of representations belonging to Byzantine art, which show dance performances accompanied by music, by focusing on the time frame from the early to the late Byzantine period. Such pictures appear in various kinds of Byzantine art (e.g. wall paintings, sculptures, ivories, and illuminated manuscripts). However, only in a few of them, musicians and their musical instruments are depicted. Only a small number of these motifs is available. Most of...

The Modes of the Orthodox Church Chant in South Transylvania

Costin Moisil
The Orthodox church chant from South Transylvania is a variant of the Byzantine chant. It was transmitted almost exclusively orally until 1890, when priest Dimitrie Cunțan published a volume in Western notation containing the most used pieces. The volume was used as a handbook for the cantors ever since, but oral tradition has continued to play a very important role even today. In this paper, I present the main issues to be investigated in order...

Christos Konstandinidis, Evangelos Bebetsos, Filippos Filippou & Helen Zetou
Σκοπός της εργασίας αυτής ήταν η προσαρμογή της Κλίμακας Ομοφοβίας σε ελληνικό χορευτικό περιβάλλον. Εξετάστηκαν οι ψυχομετρικές της ιδιότητες της κλίμακας καθώς και οι επιδράσεις του φύλου και του είδους χορού ως παραγόντων διαφοροποίησης της ομοφοβίας. Στην έρευνα συμμετείχαν 167 χορευτές και χορεύτριες του ελληνικού παραδοσιακού χορού, του κλασικού χορού και των χορών Latin. Η εσωτερική συνέπεια της κλίμακας και των υποκλιμάκων ήταν υψηλή. Η επιβεβαιωτική ανάλυση παραγόντων επιβεβαίωσε την προτεινόμενη δομή της κλίμακας. Βρέθηκε,...

EMOTION KNOWLEDGE AND SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL COMPETENCE: A PRELIMINARY STUDY OF PRESCHOOL AND FIRST-GRADE GREEK STUDENTS

Maria S. Poulou
Even young children think about their own and others’ behaviors, including emotions. Such cognitions and emotions about self and others convey information that is crucial to social interactions and relationships. The present study aimed at exploring young children’s emotional knowledge processes, the role of gender in these processes, and their association with teacherreported early school adjustment. It also aimed at testing the validity of a model of emotional knowledge in the Greek context. Two-hundred and...

ΒRAIN LATERALITY DURING MELODY PROCESSING IN MUSICIANS AND NON-MUSICIANS

Εleftheria Papadopoulou & Mary H. Kosmidis
We examined brain laterality during melody processing and its relationship to processing strategies (analytic vs. holistic) in musicians and non-musicians. Participants performed a multiple-choice task with melodies presented binaurally, and indicated the strategy used to identify them. Musicians demonstrated left hemisphere dominance during melody recognition, but non-musicians, right hemisphere dominance. This group difference may reflect enhanced left hemisphere involvement in the musicians. We found no association between laterality and self-reported strategy, although analytical processing was...

SOCIAL CLASS, IMMIGRATION AND THE SCHOOL: ACCOUNTABILITY CONCERNS ON MIGRATION IN THE DISCOURSE OF SCHOOLTEACHERS IN GREECE

Antonis Sapountzis & Anastasia Dea
Abstract: Research on social class is scant within social psychology, although recent economic developments have turned many researchers’ gaze on various research fields relating to class. An important aspect of social class research has been intersectionality, namely the relation of social class to other identities, such as gender and ethnicity. It is often argued that social agents develop an understanding of social class that is inseparable of issues of gender and ethnicity. Following a discursive...

Ninety-two participants assessed how familiar the content of the 40 photographs were to them. The photographs were selected from the NAPS database and systematically varied along the dimensions and qualities of the emotional experience. Statistically significant correlations...

An Overlooked Excerpt of the Chronicle of George the Monk in Codex Parisinus Suppl. gr. 1238

Koji Murata
This article identifies two hitherto unidentified texts on fols. 4v–8r of the codex Parisinus Suppl. gr. 1238 that are, in fact, a sequential excerpt from the Vulgate version of the Chronicle of George the Monk. The excerpt, which had become independent presumably at an early stage of the Chronicle’s textual transmission, offers an example indicating the Chronicle was used as a source of Byzantine legal practices.
