  1. From the Art de Dictier to the Poetic Art: The Lyrical Voice.Jacques-Kees Noble-Kooijman - 2018 - Human and Social Studies. Research and Practice 7 (3):150-164.
    Eustache Deschamps writes in 1392 his Art de Dictier, an art of writing and, according to its added title, an art of “making songs, balads, virelais and rondeaux.” He introduces it, therefore, as a versification treatise that is exemplary for his generation of nonmusician poets, unlike Machaut, his most probable initiator into metrics. In so doing he introduces the concept of natural music, a genre proper to inspire poets for whom lyrical musicality is entirely produced by poetic language alone. Without (...)

    French, a Uniting Bridge?Françoise Argot-Dutard - 2018 - Human and Social Studies. Research and Practice 7 (1):99-123.
    From the Middle Ages to the 20th century, the French language spread throughout Europe and all over the world, especially in Africa and in America, due to the different waves of colonisation. But this growth is compromised and even challenged within the French territory. We will thus aim at analysing the reasons of both the traditional expansion and the recent regression of the French, but we will also consider ways of curbing this movement. In order to do so, one has (...)

    Language and Outer Space.Laura Carmen Cuțitaru - 2018 - Human and Social Studies. Research and Practice 7 (1):80-87.
    The 2016 much acclaimed American sci-fi movie Arrival is based on the so-called “Sapir-Whorf” hypothesis, a linguistic theory set forth in the first half of the 20th century, according to which one’s native language dictates the way in which one perceives reality. By taking into account the latest in human knowledge, this paper tries to provide arguments as to why such a claim works wonderfully in fiction, but not in science.
