Funeral or memorial ceremonies are important in meeting the social and emotional needs of survivors. They can be important rituals to help us acknowledge a death. Ceremonies can help people express pain. Rituals can help us remember. Ceremonies can help people heal. In Language of the Heart, author Carolyn Pogue offers stories and resources for creating meaningful and healing ceremonies. The book answers the questions many of us have about financial and legal matters, living wills and ethical wills, organ donation, and what to expect at a funeral home. It also contains sample memorial ceremony outlines, prayers, and suggested scripture readings. Includes unique resources for situations when there has been a death of a child, when the relationship was unloving, when the death was a suicide.
The Languages of Psychoanalysis
Language: en
Pages: 224
Authors: John E. Gedo
Categories: Psychology
Type: BOOK - Published: 2013-09-05 - Publisher: Routledge

In this remarkable survey of "the communicative repertory of humans," John Gedo demonstrates the central importance to theory and therapeutics of the communication of information. He begins by surveying those modes of communication encountered in psychoanalysis that go beyond the lexical meaning of verbal dialogue, including "the music of speech," various protolinguistic phenomena, and the language of the body. Then, turning to the analytic dialogue, Gedo explores the implications of these alternative modes of communication for psychoanalytic technique. Individual chapters focus, in turn, on the creation of a "shared language" between analyst and analysand, the consequences of the analytic setting, the form in which the analyst casts particular interventions, the curative limits of empathy, the analyst's affectivity and its communication to the patient, and the semiotic significance of countertransference and projective identification. Gedo does not proffer semiotics as a substitute for metapsychology. He is explicit that communicative skill is always dependdent on somatic events within the central nervous system. Indeed, it is because Gedo's hierarchical approach to communication builds on our current understanding of a hierarchically organized central nervous system that his clincal observations become insights into basic psychobiological functioning. Grounded in Gedo's four decades of clinical experience, The Languages of Psychoanalysis points to a new venue of clinical research and conceptualization, one in which attentiveness to issues of communication will not only foster linkages with contemporary neuroscience, but also clarify and enlarge the therapeutic possibilities of psychoanalytic treatment.

The Language of War Monuments
Language: en
Pages: 256
Authors: David Machin, Gill Abousnnouga
Categories: Language Arts & Disciplines
Type: BOOK - Published: 2013-10-10 - Publisher: A&C Black

This book analyses war monuments by developing a multimodal social-semiotic approach to understand how they communicate as three-dimensional objects. The book provides a practical tool-kit approach to how critical multimodal social semiotics should be done through visual, textual and material analysis. It ties this material analysis into the social and political contexts of production. Using examples across the 20th and 21st century the book's chapters offer a way of analysing the way that monument designers have used specific semiotic choices in terms of things like iconography, objects, shape, form, angularity, height, materials and surface realisation to place representations of war in public places across Britain. This social-semiotic approach to the study of war monuments serves three innovative purposes. First, it provides a contribution to the work on the ideological representations of war in Media and Cultural Studies and in Critical Discourse Analysis applied specifically to more banal realisations of discourse. Second, it responds to calls by historians for innovative ways to study war commemoration by providing an approach that offers both specific analysis of the objects and attends to matters of design. Thirdly, following in the relatively recent tradition of multimodal analysis, the arguments draw on the ideas of Kress and van Leeuwen (1996, 2001), adapting and extending their theories and models to the analysis of British commemorative war monuments, in order to develop a multimodal framework for the analysis of three dimensional objects.

The Language of the Taj Mahal

Type: BOOK - Published: 2021-10-21 - Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing

The Taj Mahal, built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan (1592-1666 CE) as a mausoleum for his wife Mumtaz Mahal (1593-1631 CE), is considered exceptional in the history of world architecture.This book provides a deeper understanding of the Taj Mahal and its builder by examining its inscriptions within their architectural, historical and biographical contexts. The texts adorning the Taj Mahal comprise verses from twenty-two different chapters of the Qur'an but their meaning and significance escapes most non-Muslim visitors or those unable to read them. This book will be the first dedicated solely to the inscriptions in the monument, providing translations, commentary and interpretation of the texts. As well as offering a unique approach to the study of the building, the book uses the inscriptions to expound the foundational elements of Islam, the faith of Shah Jahan and also what the Taj Mahal still means today.

Sheila Lopez was a California woman, well-traveled in the inner spaces of emotions and communication through her long career as a psychotherapist, but a complete novice in the world of travel. When she found herself single and retired, she set out on a true adventure, with Italy as her destination. In this travel memoir, Sheila details how she embarked down a winding road that led from the goal of teaching English as a foreign language, to becoming a student in an Italian language school in the center of Rome, Italy. Through personal letters and emails to friends at home, Sheila describes practical steps for planning an extended stay in a foreign country, the realities of attending a language school in a foreign country, and the importance of personal courage and determination when stepping far out of one’s comfort zone.

The Language of Natural Description in Eighteenth-Century Poetry

Authors: John Arthos
Categories: Literary Criticism
Type: BOOK - Published: 2020-01-08 - Publisher: Routledge

Originally published in 1949, this title was written in order to help establish a better understanding of the ‘stock diction’ of eighteenth-century English poetry, and, in particular, of the diction commonly used in the description of nature. The language characteristic of so much of the poetry of this period had been severely criticized for a long time. But in the twenty or thirty years prior to publication some effort had been made to review the subject and the problem. However, several questions still remained unanswered, and more exhaustive analysis needed to be undertaken. This volume was an effort to provide answers for some of these questions and to begin the analysis that was required.
