This paper proposes an analysis of the Motion-Directional Construction(MDC) in the Chinese language in the Conceptual-Cognitive approach as outlined by Jackendoff and Langacker. It provides further conceptual support and evidence for the position that the MDC in Chinese consists of syntactic and semantic subordination, and that by means of case study, it posits that motion verbs in Chinese typically express manners of movement.
A Typology of Student Reading Engagement: Preparing for Response to Intervention in the School Curriculum
This paper adopts a person-centred approach and seeks to develop a typology of students’ reading engagement through secondary analysis of internationally-sampled survey data. It aims to provide teaching guidance in helping students advance in reading performance. It argues that response to reading intervention can facilitate junior secondary students in enhancing their reading literacy performance.
This study provides a contextualised method for understanding competition in higher education. By reviewing the publications of new recruits in a five-year period in Hong Kong and Macau, it explores how university rankings affect teacher education, and what impact teachers’ academic productivity has on teacher education.
