Paper Title:

Extension of the Semantic Field of the Word ‘Braking’ via the Benvenistien Dialectic ‘Form / Sense’

Abstract:  In this article we try to show the possibility to proceed on one extension of the semantic field of some words as part of didactic communication. This possibility raises questions about the consistency of distinctions benvenistiennes: categories of thought / language categories ' semiotic / semantic ' and ' form / sense.

Categories of thought / Language categories, Didactic communication, Expressions corpus, Form / Meaning, Semiotic / Semantic.

Paper Title:

An Analysis on the Impact of Demonetization on Sector Indices of the Bombay Stock Exchange

Abstract: On November 8th, 2016, Government of India announced its decision to discontinue the legal tender status of Rs 500 and Rs 1000 notes. The primary objectives to discontinue were eliminating fake currency notes, inflicting losses out of black money and disrupting terror activities. Later, it tacked on: turning India into a less cash economy and enabling growth in bank credit. The barometers of Indian stock markets BSE SENSEX and NIFTY dropped down by 300 and 90 points respectively the next day of the announcement.  The Nifty Realty and BSE Realty index gapped down after the day of the demonetization by 11% & 8% respectively. The Nifty Bank and BSE Bankex Index dropped by 5.3% and 5 % respectively. This paper attempts to measure the impact of demonetization on several stock sectors. Among the 19 sector indices of the Bombay Stock Exchange, 14 were selected for analysis. The study reveals that the sector returns and volatility prior and post demonetization do not have high fluctuations. Though some of the indices dropped the next day, they recovered.

Jallian Wala Bagh Massacre and the Birth of Revolutionary Terrorism in the Indian Freedom Struggle

The scale of destruction caused by the massacre agitated the people to revolt against the British in a more rigid manner. They were prepared in mind and body to pass through the severest ordeals. The large band of revolutionaries of the freedom struggle who chose a life of exile for many years- some for their life far away from their mother land- yeoman’s service to the cause of India’s freedom by propagating true facts about the nature of British Rule in India to people hitherto kept an ignorance or misled by the false propaganda of the British and succeeded in evoking the sympathy of the British. It is they who set an example before the Indians by sacrificing their own life. This paper is an attempt to bring out the hardships underwent by the Indians at the time of massacre and how it ignited them to fight for the nation’s freedom.

Paper Title:

Use of Focus Groups to Improve a Professional Development Needs Assessment Survey for EFL Instructors

Abstract: This paper focuses on the process followed to further improve a needs assessment survey used for large-scale research which aimed to identify the perceived professional development needs, interests and preferences of EFL instructors working at the preparatory schools of universities. Focus group interviews were mainly used to collect qualitative data to generate new items and refine existing ones in the research instrument. The process of holding focus groups will be described in detail to inform other researchers considering using focus group interviews for the same purposes.
