The present volume is a peer-reviewed selection from the papers written in English that were presented at the 9th International Symposium on Social Communication (Santiago de Cuba, January 24-28, 2005). The symposia are held by the Santiago-based institution every two years. Since their inception in 1987, these meetings have provided an excellent opportunity for scientific exchange among scholars from all continents, through the presentation of papers, keynote speeches, and workshops focusing on the most current and recent results of linguistics and other related disciplines that are also invited to the event. This volume includes 34 papers subdivided in eight sections: General Linguistics (8), Phonetics (5), Lexicology (3), Corpus Linguistics (2), Natural Language Processing (9), Foreign Languages (3), Mass Media (2) and Art, Ethnology and Folklore (2). These articles provide an excellent overview of the current state of research from around the world. Scholars came from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, China, Cuba, Spain, United States, France, Greek, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal and the United Kingdom. It is important to highlight the presence in this book of apers by some of the world's leading researchers in linguistics, including Prof. Dr. Anton Nijholt, from Twente University, Enschede, The Netherlands; Prof. Dr. Nicoletta Calzolari, director of the prestigious Institute of Computational Linguistics of Pisa, Italy; Prof. Dr. Michael Zock, from the Scientific Research Center of France; Prof. Dr. Dieter Fensel, from the Digital Enterprise Research Institute of Leopold-Franzens University, Innsbruck, Austria; Prof Dr. Gloria Corpas Pastor from the University of Malaga, Spain; and the doctors Iñaki Alegria, Xabier Arregi and Xabier Artola, from the IXA Group of the Basque Country University. - Index: Preface /ix GENERAL LINGUISTICS /1 Wim Vandenbussche, Eline Vanhecke, Roland Willemyns and Jetje de Groof Language policy and language practice in official administrations in 19th century Flanders /3 Manuel Camacho Higareda Evaluative action and the narrativization of morality in the community of Bullfight Aficionados /13 Mark Hopkins Representations of English in Hong Kong’s postcolonial language planning and societal attitudes /23 Gaëtanelle Gilquin Causing oneself to do something: the psychodynamics of causative constructions /37 Gloria Corpas Pastor Translation quality standards in Europe: an overview /47 Myriam Vermeerbergen Sign languages: more of the same or not quite? /59 Rita Marinelli, Remo Bindi and Adriana Roventini Metonymic and metaphorical uses of proper names /69 Shigeko Nariyama ‘Agent disguising constructions’ from a cross-linguistic perspective in natural language processing /79 PHONETICS /101 Massimo Pettorino and Antonella Giannini Italian TV Speech: a diachronic analysis /103 Silvia Calamai Intrinsic methods in vowel normalization: data from Pisa and Florence Italian /113 Aintzane Belamendia Alegría An analysis on the vowel duration in the Basque spoken in Legorreta /125 Gwendolyn Lowes and Ausencia López Cruz Potential aspect and the role of tone in two variants of Zapotec /135 Germán Bordel and others Digital resources for automatic speech recognition of broadcast news in Basque and Spanish /145 LEXICOLOGY /153 Michael Zock Needles in a haystack and how to find them?
