English Language and Bilingualism development of text to speech system for yoruba language
The language contact situation in Nigeria has rubbed off on the languages within the ethnic and tribal groups. The influence of English language is evident in the language situation in Nigeria. Local varieties have been realized as a result of code-mixing and switching of bilinguals within different speech communities in Nigeria. English as the official language in Nigeria has continued to play diverse roles. It is the language of education, government, administration, commerce, journalism, legislative and international deliberations; it lives alongside other Nigerian languages, interacts with them and adapts itself to the Nigerian environment. This interaction with Nigerian languages; Igbo, Hausa and Yoruba etc. led to pidginization, nativization and acculturation of English. Igbo language and culture has also influenced the English language. This book is a purview of the speech behavior of the educated Igbo -bilinguals who may not be able to speak Igbo language without code switching or mixing of English language. The speech behavior of the educated-Igbo bilinguals has raised a lot of criticism.

Instructional Interaction in Online Foreign Language Learning development of text to speech system for yoruba language
The book extends the concept of language in Lev Vygotsky’s Sociocultural Theory to the cognitive differences between second language acquisiton(SLA) and foreign language learning(FLL), and succeeds in filling the gap between FLL and SLA in constructing instructional interaction for FLL by the adoption of the Zone of Proximal Development and Scaffolding. It is not just intended to promote a particular approach to instructional interaction development in online FLL, but is an attempt to highlight the existence of the differences between FLL and SLA, and to underline the necessity to attend to them on a more than SLA theoretical basis.

A Natural Language Interface for Cyber-Physical Systems development of text to speech system for yoruba language
In this book the implementation of a natural language processing tool using the Stanford CoreNLP framework is described. With today's rising demand for natural language processing capability in consumer electronics, this book shows how industrial diagnosis applications can also benefit from language processing. Based on a cognitive architecture for cyber-physical systems, three main points are shown. Firstly, how language in the industrial context is parsed using techniques such as part-of-speech tagging, regular expressions, and classification. Secondly, how the information contained in a natural language text can be represented in semantic frames by using slots in order to formalise it. Thirdly, the design of the user interface and its use on a demonstration platform to present and validate results.

Деловой английский язык (для бакалавров). Учебное пособие development of text to speech system for yoruba language

The rapidly developing sphere of financial services dictates the necessity to know and to use financial terminology in order to communicate with foreign partners.

The tasks enlarge the stock of lexical items used by students in their speech and develop critical thinking skills. The suggested pattern of focusing on speech exercises, which starts with merely learning particular terms and then encourages students to use these terms in oral and written speech, develops communicative competency, which, in its turn, is vitally important for communication in different fields of professional and business situations. The book is aimed at students of Economics who study Business English. The textbook should also be of great interest to any specialists or professionals who want to improve their language skills.

The Method and Post-Method Era in Language Pedagogy development of text to speech system for yoruba language
This volume explores the development of Language and Language pedagogy from Theory to Method and the Post Method paradigms. The book seeks to draw implications to the classroom practitioner from the developments in Second Language instruction. The book discusses two theories of language acquisition and one theory of language learning and the relevance of these theories to the modern second language practitioner. It traces the long journey second language teaching has embarked on in the search for a second language teaching method which would provide the panacea for second language instruction ills and how the search has been rendered futile. The seeming breakthroughs subsequent to the method era are also examined. The book then considers some pertinent issues and practices related to the post-method era in second language teaching. The volume concludes by discussing errors and error correction in second language teaching within the context of the theories and methods discussed. The presentation of content is punctuated by self- help exercises meant to consolidate the issues discussed and to help the reader gauge their understanding of the issues raised.
