Abstract:
Teaching and learning of technical terms constitute a major problem for ESP instructors and students. To help the students learn, retain, apply and relate technical terms, a multiple-associations instructional approach that focuses on connecting the printed form of the technical term with its pronunciation (the hidden sounds, double and silent letters, and homophones), with its part of speech, singular or plural form, synonym or antonym, English and Arabic meanings, usage, component parts (prefixes, suffixes, roots), previously-encountered terms and others should be followed while presenting the new technical terms in business, computer science and engineering to the students. Categorization, association, and visualization skills and mnemonic approaches should be emphasized. Mind maps can be used to show those connections. Out of class, extensive listening and reading activities are also encouraged. Quizzes should require the students to make the multiple associations described in the article. The multiple-associations instructional approach proved to be effective in enhancing the learning of technical terms by EFL college students. Further recommendations for strategies that can be used in teaching multiple associations are given.

Abstract:
The assessment of translators’ ethical duties lies in the hands of the professionals, and it seemingly has nothing to do with the translator’s own educational and academic trajectory. However, some specialists translate works in their expertise; how do their academic trajectory and standings affect the evaluation of their ethical duties? This paper, through a case study on Arthur Waley’s translation of Dunhuang Bianwen 敦煌变文, investigates how Waley’s academic perspectives play a role in implementing his translation ethics. The paper finds that Waley, instead of merely assuming the ethical duties to the target readers, attempted to make ethical commitments to the source and target texts alike. The paper finally suggests that the translators’ academic trajectory and standings should be given due attention in making ethical judgments to scholar-cum-translators such as Arthur Waley in this case.

Abstract:
To help ESP college instructors improve the English curriculum taught at polytechnic institutes, colleges and universities, the current study proposes a model for designing English for Polytechnic Purposes (EPP) courses for undergraduate students majoring in mechanical engineering, chemistry, technology, economics, textile industry and other applied sciences. It aims to show instructors the following: how to identify students’ needs; how to assess students’ proficiency level in English; how to define the EPP learning outcomes (course objectives); how to identify the language skills and language elements that should be taught to a particular group of students; how to select technical terms and topics related to the students’ area of specialization; how to select the course content and material to be used; how to integrate the content and skills while teaching, i.e., how to teach content and listening skills, content and speaking skills, content and reading skills, content and writing skills, content and technical terms, content and grammar, and how to integrate current global events in the course; how to develop students’ prior knowledge in their area of specialization; teaching students how to search for information in online resources; the types of technologies that can be integrated in EPP instruction; the kind of assignments, practice and application activities to give to the students and assessment.

Abstract:
This study aims to investigate the overuse of English prepositions by Arabs caused by first language transfer among high school, university, and graduate-level students who study English as a foreign language in Saudi Arabia. The researcher developed the research tool of multiple-choice questions to be responded to by the study participants, including five hundred thirty-one persons of the mentioned research community. It has been found after the analysis of responses of the study participants that the greater the students' competence level, the less impact the first language transfer has on second language acquisition. In this study, the researcher recommends that the student should be taught more about the different meanings and usage of prepositions in English and Arabic. In addition, more comparative linguistic research between English and other languages, such as Arabic, should be encouraged to help students understand how prepositions are used in each language.

Abstract:
Previous studies showed that educational context factors like schools could influence the English proficiency of students. One of the greatest predictors of proficiency among language learners is the type of school they are attending – either public or private. Empirical data also suggested that English proficiency had an impact on students’ performance in science and math courses. Hence, this study examined which type of senior high school (SHS) – public or private school – could produce more proficient students in using the English language. The data gathering process focused on SHS students from both public and private schools, who were enrolled in the academic track of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). The study investigated their English proficiency and looked into their profile variates; the difference in their English proficiency in terms of grammar, vocabulary, and reading comprehension, which turned out to be significant whether they were in a public school or private school; the relationship between their English Proficiency and the type of school they attended which was also significant; and the relationship between their English proficiency and their academic performance in English courses which was found to have nothing to do with the former.

Abstract:
This tax avoidance effort is a form of fraud. Fraud is an action that is intentionally carried out with the aim of personal or group interests so that certain parties will lose. By the translation of the Indonesian Institute of Certified Public Accountants, Fraud is an act carried out by individuals or intentionally by a responsible party or management of a third party, employee, or governance deceptive to obtain an advantage by violating the law or unfairly. Several factors encourage fraud, including economic, emotional, or value pressures. Then, there are opportunities due to weak control or abuse of authority. Then Rationalization or looking for justification for the occurrence of fraud. There are also individual factors related to a person's morale, namely Need (Need) and greed (greed) which are related to the needs and views of officials/employees related to company assets.

Abstract:
Excessive consumption on a large scale in various affairs causes the waste of substantial material assets and sometimes even endangers the lives of human beings. This consumption leads to famine and the reduction of necessary materials for future generations. The wrong consumption patterns in Islamic society are undeniable, and their adverse consequences have exposed Islamic societies. However, one of Islam’s best accurate social-economical guidance is avoiding excessive consumption. This article attempts to clarify the Modification Consumption Patterns using the sayings of Imam-Ali (AS) in Nahj al-Balaghah. Regarding the revision of Hadiths and Quranic verses, the researchers can extract and conclude the basic consumption patterns and present them to the Islamic community. For Example, “Extravagance Consumption ruins the divine rewards.” Islam had warned the Islamic Community to avoid excessive consumption while using the pure resources on the earth. Holy Quran harshly condemned profanes and those who are abundantly excessive about any consumption on the earth. In Surah Araf, verse 31: “O Children of Adam! Wear your beautiful apparel at every time and place of prayer: eat and drink: But waste not by excess, for Allah, loveth not the wasters”. These patterns can be compared with other patterns in the Islamic community.

Abstract:
Duterte’s war on drugs initially gained strong support but has bolstered public judgments of insecurity approaching his last presidential term. The conduct of extrajudicial killings, house raids, and incentives to kill for law enforcers have resulted in paradoxical security implications for Duterte’s counternarcotics policy since 2016. This article employs Field’s 2016 theory of Domestic Security Dilemma and argues that paradoxical security implications are well present in Duterte’s anti-illegal drug campaign, proven by the following phases of the domestic security dilemma; 1) occurrence of a domestic security threat in the form of drug abuses, 2) Duterte’s response through counternarcotic policies of extrajudicial killings, house raids, and incentives to kill for law enforcers, 3) security paradox emerges with concerns over possible misuse of government power, leading to citizens to be insecure and fear the government, and 4) implications of difficult counternarcotic policies to be implemented in the future, and the constant fear of conflict due to the introduced rhetoric of ‘war.’

Abstract:
A hypercompetitive and unpredictable business environment requires companies to have resources that enable organizations to be proactive and responsive to the environment and improve organizational efficiency. By using library research methods, this paper tried to synthesize the theory of intellectual capital and resource-based view and then develop the indicators to be more specific. The results of the study showed that the dimensions of the intellectual capital-based view turned out as the support and guide for implementing agility in the company, and the firm agility will be more achievable if it has an intellectual capital-based view.

Abstract:
Semantic and functional transformation of words is a common feature of all languages and has been one of the hot topics in language research. Being a common word in modern Chinese, “si” (death) has gone through the process of semantic transformation many times and has had multiple meanings. Previous researches mainly focus on the classification of various meanings of “death”, the differences and characteristics of the meaning of “si” (death) in different syntactic positions, and the intuitive research on the causes and paths of semantic transformation, but the latter is not systematical. In order to solve the problem, cognitive linguistics has put forward prototype category theory to find out the general rules of semantic and functional transformation. Prototype category theory emphasizes the motivation of the semantic transformation of words when guiding us to study the semantic transformation of words. Our study finds that the relationship between the new meanings derived from semantic transformation and the original meaning of “si” (death) can be reasonably explained by the prototype category theory in cognitive linguistics. This discovery proves from the reverse side that the prototype category is the main way of semantic and functional transformation of Chinese words, which fully demonstrates that the semantic and functional transformation of Chinese words conforms to the cognitive law of human beings, having strong motivation.

Abstract:
Corpus as a tool has been introduced in literature and linguistics for many years, allowing linguistic features and authorial style more visible and appreciable to readers. Based on Biber’s MD/MF method and semantic field, this research is interested in linguistic features of science fiction and finds that transitivity is what makes science fiction distinguishable from science articles and novels. The current research is corpus-based, and corpora included in this research consist of Silence Spring (science article), The Time Machine (science fiction), and Jane Eyre (romance novel). This paper takes aims to investigate the 'transitivity' of science fiction by comparing three novels of different types. By means of the MD/MF method, the paper has found that transitivity in science fiction is achieved by TTR, mean word length, and mean sentence length. These findings may direct potential writers to focus on linguistic features worthy of notice, and readers can have a better understanding when they are reading novels.

Abstract:
The founding fathers of Lagos could not have fathomed nor ever imagined what today's image of the city would be like. Birthed several centuries ago, Lagos today has become a megacity and a force to reckon with. Small wonder poets, using their imaginative abilities, have painted and are painting what everyday life in Lagos looks like, from issues of traffic jams to armed robbery, prostitution, overpopulation, and sundry matters. This paper, therefore, uses the analytical tools of the Speech Act theory tool of Discourse Analysis to decipher the messages of selected contemporary poets on Lagos and everyday life in the city, thus bringing to the fore the environmental issues of overpopulation, traffic jams, poor hygiene, and unemployment, among other matters that are typical of a mega city much in need of proper planning like Lagos.

Abstract:
The purpose of this article is to examine the necessity for a special criminal procedure for disabled people in the Indonesian court system. This study used legislation and conceptual techniques to conduct doctrinal legal research. According to the conclusions of this study, the criminal justice system is built on the normality principle, which states that everyone is physically and mentally normal. As a result, the investigation, prosecution, and examination processes in court proceedings are solely designed and geared at ordinary people. Disabled people have been pushed to the outskirts and may be disregarded. The rights of people with disabilities are routinely violated, both as perpetrators and as witnesses/victims of criminal activity. For the criminal justice system to be pro-people, the medical method should be abandoned in favor of a social approach. Law enforcement must perform its duties at each level of the criminal justice system to ensure that people with disabilities receive a fair trial. A profile assessment is required in the early stages of the criminal justice process to evaluate the character, difficulties, and needs of people with disabilities.

Abstract:
Reflective journal writing is an innovative and learner-centered activity. In recent years, its use has exponentially increased in both academic and professional education due to its versatile nature and its myriad of evidenced advantages. Such a pedagogical tool has the potential to fulfill diverse functions and serve different purposes. It can be used as a teaching, learning, and assessment tool. Besides this, it can be utilized to stimulate different modes of thinking and hence influences the quality of reflective reasoning. However, reflective journal writing can fail to fulfill this purpose due to a set of inhibiting factors or barriers. There is a range of intrinsic and extrinsic factors that hinder the developmental process of reflective thinking through journal writing and negatively affect its enhancement. This article review, therefore, aimed to expose and synthesize the inhibiting factors existing in the literature. Being conscious of these factors, educators and academics would optimize the design and implementation of reflective journal writing and hence maximize to the fullest the development of students’ reflective thinking.

Abstract:
We now live in a digital era with its attendant development from Information Technology (IT) computer systems to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) computer systems with consequences on education systems. Experts have posited that the adaptation of teacher education and professional development programs to the digital era should consider the user’s worldview and its implications vis-à-vis education and society in general. Moreso, there has been the belief that teachers show apathy and resistance to the changes brought about by technological advancement and innovations as they affect the dissemination of information and the teaching and learning process. This paper examined the perception of selected lecturers about the use of a Digital Language Laboratory in the teaching and learning process. We adopted the use of a self-constructed questionnaire in soliciting information from language lecturers from the School of Languages, Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education, Lagos. The paper unravels the challenges faced by the lecturers in fully maximizing the resources available in the digital language laboratory. Recommendations were proffered to resolve the identified challenges in order to enhance its efficient use for effective teaching and learning of languages.

Abstract:
This research aims to identify the factors that influence trust in paying zakat through zakat management organization (OPZ) or zakat institution in Indonesia. The theory in conducting this research is based on agency theory and legitimacy theory. This research is a quantitative descriptive research using primary data in the form of questionnaires distributed online using the Structural Equation Model (SEM) analysis tool. The population in the research is the Muslim population in Indonesia, who are obliged to pay zakat. Samples were taken randomly using the Simple Random Sampling method for as many as 100 respondents in 40 cities spread across Indonesia. The results showed that Muzakki's Perception of Management and Transparency Practices had a significant positive effect on trust in paying zakat through zakat institutions. Meanwhile, Muzakki's Perception of Zakat Institutions and Muzakki's Background has no significant effect on trust in paying zakat through zakat institutions. These findings are expected to be a serious concern for stakeholders in educating the Muslim community about the importance of paying zakat through zakat institutions in order to reduce income inequality and achieve economic prosperity in Indonesia. The results showed that Muzakki's Perception of Management and Transparency Practices had a significant positive effect on trust in paying zakat through zakat institutions.

Abstract:
The aim of this study was to find out whether there is a correlation between UoB students’ English Language Proficiency (LP) and their Idiomatic Competency (IC). In addition, to determine whether culture plays an important role in influencing the students' understanding of idioms. Furthermore, to assess how far the current situation of teaching and learning the English language affects the process of developing IC. And to find out any difficulties and shortcomings of teaching and learning idioms at UoB. Reviewing the previous studies in the field of idiomatic language usage showed that the issue of the correlation between learners' LP and their IC is controversial. This study investigated the controversy around the issue in order to explore the UoB students and to examine whether there is a significant correlation between their LP and IC. The researcher selected a sample of students who sat for a proficiency test along with a test for idiomatic language. Two questionnaires were administered to elicit the UoB students' and teachers' views on the importance of the use of idiomatic expressions in a classroom. The researcher compared scores from both teachers' and students' LP test and their idiomatic language tests. She also measured the effect of culture on the ability to comprehend idiomatic expressions. She examined the current situation of teaching the English language and its role in the learners’ comprehension of idiomatic expressions. She discussed the difficulties faced by the UoB’s students in learning idioms. The study found that there is a significant correlation between UoB students' LP and their IC. In addition, culture plays a huge role in influencing teaching and learning idioms. Both teachers and students encounter some difficulties in teaching and learning idioms in the classroom.

Abstract:
The aim of this research is to examine the effective use of pictograms in the Ojo Local Government Area of Lagos State, Nigeria. A simple sampling technique was used to select twenty-five (25) nursery and primary school teachers in four (4) schools, a questionnaire was used to collect data, and a simple percentage and chi-square (x) were used to analyze the data. The result reveals that there is a significant difference between children taught with pictograms and the children taught without them. It is therefore suggested that all the pre-school teachers and caregivers should use pictograms to teach the learners for a better understanding and effective learning, the government should provide instructional materials (pictogram) for public schools, and private school owners should provide the necessary instructional materials needed, and teachers and caregivers should use pictograms effectively for a better result.

Abstract:
The New Year Addresses by Chinese President Xi Jinping has the function of conveying New Year’s blessings and constructing a national image. Based on the conceptual metaphor theory of cognitive linguistics, this study selects the English version of New Year Addresses by President Xi Jinping from 2014 to 2021 as the research corpus and adopts the method of combining quantitative and qualitative analysis to identify the distribution of conceptual metaphors in the New Year Addresses and what kind of national image has been constructed by the main conceptual metaphor types. It is found that President Xi Jinping’s New Year Addresses mainly constructs the national image through the use of journey metaphor, construction metaphor, war metaphor, and personification metaphor. China’s image is political integrity, full of vitality, committed to world peace, and making a greater contribution to humanity.

Abstract:
Athletes are bombarded with nutritional/dietary supplements (NSs/DSs) that promise to improve health, function, and performance. Many of these claims, however, are based on little evidence, and the efficacy and safety of many products are debatable. A review of doping, risk factors, protective factors, performance enhancement, sports performance, dietary supplements, nutritional supplements (NSs), and health consequences was completed using PubMed, Google Scholar, Web of Science, and Science Direct. The inclusion criteria were studies published up until June 2021, which analyzed the content of nutritional/dietary substances and their influence on sports performance. Seventy-three review articles were included in this review. In summary, supplementation will always be a part of athletes’ careers due to its perception of ergogenic capabilities, and there is evidence of some dietary nutritional supplements DSs/NSs substances supporting performance enhancement and recovery. However, there is data that due to real harm and unethical manufacturing and marketing practices, some products may contain unwanted/illegal substances. Athletes should be aware of the risk of being tested positive due to contamination of NSs/DSs with a World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA)-banned substance. Athletes and coaches should stick only to supplements that show strong research evidence supporting sports performance and safety use.

Abstract:
The purpose of this study is to indicate the effect of CEO narcissism, sales growth, and profitability proxied by Return On Assets (ROA) on tax avoidance with earnings management as moderating variable in manufacturing companies listed on the Indonesia Stock Exchange from 2016 to 2019. This study relies on secondary data obtained from annual reports from the official website of the Indonesia Stock Exchange, namely www.idx.co.id. The sample is selected based on certain criteria, with 57 companies obtained. Data analysis was performed by panel data regression. The findings of this study indicate that earnings management can moderate the relation between CEO narcissism and sales growth on tax avoidance. The role of earning manipulation activities strengthens the CEO of the company to carry out tax avoidance activities. Earnings management also plays a role in sales variables closely related to profit and taxes. Meanwhile, CEO narcissism, sales growth, and profitability had no significant effect on tax avoidance, and earnings management cannot moderate the relationship between profitability and tax avoidance. Company in doing tax avoidance does not always consider Return on Asset or caused by other reasons.

Abstract:
The aim of this study is to investigate transitivity in proverbs in Achebe's Things Fall Apart. It explores the relationship between linguistic structures in proverbs by critically examining the processes, participants, and circumstantials as used by Achebe in his work. The analysis reveals that Achebe uses more material processes, followed by relational, and then verbal, behavioural, and mental. Achebe mostly uses actors, goals, carriers, attributes, identified, identifier, sayer, verbiage, and behaver to convey the message of his novel and the behaviours of the characters he used in his book. He mostly uses circumstances of location and manner to show that actions of the novel take place in a certain place, time, and manner. The study is anchored on Halliday's Systemic Functional Grammar Transitivity. The types of transitivity systems utilized by the writer contribute to the construction of themes reflected in the novel. The paper concludes that Achebe's use of varieties of processes, participants, and circumstances has made his novel interesting and readable. As a result, objective interpretations of texts can be reached by conducting transitivity analyses.

Abstract:
Freshman students at the College of Languages and Translation received direct instruction in plural formation. Instruction covered regular plural nouns, irregular plural nouns, plural formation of words ending in –f, and –o, nouns that have the same plural and singular form, and words with Latin and foreign plurals. The students did all the exercises in the textbook, then took an immediate test a week after instruction and a delayed test at the end of the semester (3 months later). Responses were scored and a corpus of 3099 errors was collected from both tests. No significant differences were found in the amount and types of errors made by the students in the immediate and delayed tests. Results revealed that freshman students tended to regularize English plural formation and overgeneralize regular English plural morphemes (63.28%), i.e., they deleted the regular plural suffix from nouns ending in an –s or –es (35.37%) or tended to add the regular plural suffix to words that do not have it (27.91%). They also confused singular and plural endings of Latin words (15.07%). They either confused the singular and plural forms of the same Latin word or added a faulty Latin suffix to a Latin word or even a non-Latin word such as criterium, *curriculon, *natia, *salma, *petrolea. In other cases, they thought the singular and plural forms of a word were the same (7%). In addition, findings showed that the most difficult plurals to master were those of words that end with an –s or –es but have no singular form such as measles, news, pajamas, means, linguistics (28.85%); words with Latin plurals (21.85%); non-count nouns such as information, electricity, petroleum, salmon with no plural form (21.4%), and words that have a plural, but they thought they have no plural form such as nation, illness, infection, African (8.55%). Interference among the English plural morphemes themselves and confusing plural formation rules caused most errors. No interference from Arabic pluralization was found. Recommendations for improving students’ English plural formation competence are given.

Abstract:
A PESTLE analysis is a commonly used practice by marketing to access the macro environment of a company or an industry. This analysis helps organizations identify the external marketing factors that impact the external marketing environment of an organization. PESTLE analysis provides a framework to understand the political, economic, social, technological, legal, and ethical factors of an industry or an organization to evaluate potential changes required to implement managerial decisions. This tool is used to understand the growth and decline of an organization or its division to develop strategies in its operational direction. The aim of this case study was to assess the impact of Covid19 on the enrollment of international students in higher education in the United States through PESTLE analysis. It has been concluded that Covid19 badly impacted the recruitment of international students by the institutions of higher education in the country. It has been found that the pandemic adversely affected the budgets of the universities. It has been suggested to overcome some of these problems can be found through an aggressive market with some financial support from the enrollment teams of the respective institutes. The organization may adjust its operations and find new creative ways to stay on top of its game. Enrollment trends and operations are expected to be impacted by several micro and macro trends in the long term, and some of these factors might become responsible for changes in the functions and operations of the organizations. In the long run, the best practice with this uncertainty is to keep a close eye on the changing trends and build an organizational leadership that's flexible and eager to adapt to the new challenges they will face.

Abstract:
This preliminary study aims to identify the problems in writing faced by Malaysian Yea 2 pupils in a primary school. A document analysis design was employed to gather qualitative data from 75 participants who were purposively selected due to accessibility. The main instruments used in this study are the reports from English School-Based. The pupil’s essays and worksheets were then analyzed. Findings revealed that 58.67% of the students are only at Band 3 in the School-Based Assessment (SBA) for writing skill performance which indicates that they were only at a satisfactory level. Analysis of the pupils’ work revealed a clear problem with writing skills; where 36 out of 72 (50%) pupils were not able to write simple sentences properly. This implies that early intervention is needed to cater to this issue.

Abstract:
In recent years, due to the remarkable explosion of the Internet and technology as well as the globalization orientation, language teaching has witnessed many new and innovative teaching methods and materials in ESL classrooms. Many teachers have taken advantage of this trend and made the language classroom more attractive with visual aids and interactive teaching methods using technology. Moreover, besides traditional classroom contexts with textbooks, instructors or teachers, whiteboards, and markers, learners themselves nowadays have better access to many other channels of language learning, such as Youtube, one of the most internationally popular platforms, Netflix, BBC, Ted Talks, the news, radio podcasts, etc. where they can actually learn the language as well as an approach to the content they want at their own homes. In fact, it is undoubtedly true that in recent days, it is very difficult to find a teenager or young adult without a smartphone or Internet access, and young Vietnamese students are not excluded. The sharp increase of high school and university students who own a Youtube or Netflix account and the amount of time they spend watching TV shows, viral video clips, soap operas, or movies every day made the researcher wonder if we could use these endless captivating sources of materials to actually enhance learners’ motivation and listening ability in Vietnamese ESL classrooms.

Abstract:
This ethnographic research study explores the changes undergone by an integration classroom designed to receive kids with disabilities following the implementation of Morocco’s 2019 inclusive education program. This longitudinal study spans two academic years (Jan-Feb, 2021 & Jan-Feb, 2022), given that classes were suspended during the academic year 2019-2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. This paper uses qualitative tools to examine how the newly-devised inclusive education program affected a Moroccan integration classroom. It relies on participant observations, field notes, and informal questioning in addition to analysis of official documents. The research takes place in a Rabat-based integration classroom housed by the Allal Ben Abdellah public elementary school, a pilot establishment with years of expertise in dealing with kids with disabilities. The research shows that there is still a big confusion between the concepts of integration and inclusion as used in the Moroccan context. Inclusive education is still facing the challenges of lack of training for educators, scarcity of resources and equipment, and the rarity of school aids. However, there are some changes that occurred with the advent of the inclusive education program, like the change in the classroom’s demographics and the decrease of segregation of kids with disabilities, which helped many improve especially mild and moderate cases. In addition, the staff is proactive, self-taught, and has a positive attitude, a humane approach, and on-the-job expertise, a fact that helps with the implementation of the inclusive education program.

Abstract:
The Church of England, the greatest Anglican establishment and the symbol of Great Britain's imperialism, has been the juncture of English history and literature throughout history. Although, after industrialization, the British society went toward a religious reformation in the Victorian era, some historians consider the early nineteenth century England as the 'Golden age' of England's ecclesiastical imperialism. Jane Austen, in her six published novels, has scrutinized the true essence of the Church of England from her specific glasses of sharpness. So, with reference to Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, this paper engages in questioning whether her works, as famous literary works of the nineteenth century which satirically depict the original social context of the time, influenced the social mind toward the Victorian reformation. In Pride and Prejudice, Miss Austen doubts the power and real position of the church and shows her disdain for religion through the foolish narrow-minded characterization of the story's clergyman: Mr. William Collins. The present study aims to illuminate the true essence of The Church of England during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century according to what Jane Austen has depicted in her novel Pride and Prejudice. Hence, this paper first probes into the religious climate of the pre-Victorian era, then it investigates Jane Austen's role, as one of the greatest writers of the age, in Victorian religious reformation, and lastly, the study aims to conclude how the British society led to the decline of religion and ecclesiasticism in the modern age.

Abstract:
Language learning strategies are activities consciously chosen by learners for the purpose of regulating their own language learning, and it has a strong relationship with learning success. On the other hand, employing effective language learning will improve students' achievements. Effective learning strategies are not the preserve of highly capable individuals but could be learned by others who had not discovered them on their own. Speaking skills as one of the majors in learning a language is expected to be mastered by Indonesian students in the globalization era. SILL questionnaire has been used in many countries around the world to investigate strategy use among groups of students of English as a Second or Foreign language. Therefore, this paper showed the relation between the use of SILL Oxford and the speaking learning strategies. The mixed-method approach was employed, and 183 Indonesian students participated in this research. The SILL Oxford questionnaire was adapted in this research in order to find the speaking learning strategies employed by the students. The interviews were conducted to get the students’ reasons as well as confirm the students' strategies and SILL Oxford. The finding showed that most successful Indonesian students employed metacognitive strategies with percentage responses of 72.7% and the affective as the least with a percentage of 56.8%. It was also found that most of them used paying attention, using resources for receiving strategy sending messages, and self-monitoring strategy strategies. The interviews resulted showed that the SILL Oxford result was the same as the students learning strategies. And their reason for choosing the strategies was their awareness of learning asn the importance of English. Therefore, it can be the basis for the students improving their speaking proficiency by applying successful student learning strategies.

Abstract:
The goal of this study is to see if there is a link between the usage of metacognitive reading strategies by non-English major students and their reading comprehension performance. This research was conducted at Dong Nai Technology University with 70 students ranging in age from 19 to 22 years old. Both quantitative and qualitative data were used in the investigation. These students were asked to complete a TOEIC reading test to assess their reading ability, followed by the Metacognitive Awareness of Reading Strategies Inventory (MARSI) (Mokhtari & Reichard, 2002) to assess their metacognitive use. Semi-structured interviews with four high scorers and four low scorers from the sample were used to acquire qualitative data. The findings demonstrated that students' metacognitive reading strategy use is at a moderate level, and the most frequent and least frequent strategies that they used are Problem-solving and Global strategies, respectively. Additionally, it found that more proficient readers used metacognitive strategies more frequently, more successfully, and more appropriately than less proficient readers and vice versa. Some qualitative results were also mentioned. The results of the study have some implications for both teachers and students to employ appropriate metacognitive reading strategies in second language acquisition.

Abstract:
Intellectual property rights (IPRs) always drive invention and creativeness. It also creates new employment and makes you more competitive. Intellectual property rights protect and benefit the work of writers, artists, designers, discoverers, and other IPR users while they are being used by others. Intellectual property rights (IPRs) help protect ideas and creative works developed by inventors, designers, developers, and writers. After all, protecting intellectual property is one of the major challenges for both developed and developing nations. There are numerous international laws that protect intellectual property. International law employs several guidelines and recommendations to confirm the protection of intellectual property. In addition, most countries have intellectual property laws. Maximum countries have their own legislative powers to protect their intellectual property rights. But if not done properly, all these international and domestic intellectual property laws will be valueless. The legal system that China and Pakistan follow to protect their intellectual property is very similar to the legal system of developed countries but also has some main variances. This research paper attempts to examine the assessment of IPR protection in China and Pakistan. This research paper also describes IPR protection procedures in China and Pakistan. In addition, this article initiates a comparison of international IPR indexes to demonstrate and describe the variances in IPR protection assessments. This article also lists and describes the various factors that influence the lack of proper protection of property and intellectual property rights in both countries.

Abstract:
This scoping review studies how translation works through discourse and register analysis approach. In translation, different translation types have been successfully practiced. In interlingual translation, translating means beyond the word-for-word translation. In literature translation, the translation process demands improvement, especially in classical literature that needs to be understood in a target foreign culture. This systematic review aims to study how translation processes work and how discourse and register analysis approaches can improve translation products. Discourse analysis deals with how language communicates and holds its social and power relations. Discourse analysis aims to understand and investigate sentences and discourse through their underlying social and cultural context. Through the metafunctions of language, register variables such as the field, tenor, and mode, as well as through comparative analysis of the source text and the target text, translation products could be more efficient for the target audience. Hence, it can ensure translation quality. The conclusions of this systematic review could lead to future studies to improve translation quality through discourse and register analysis approach.

Abstract:
This study, underpinned by critical framing theory, analyses the English version of The2021 Report on the Work of the Government, instantiating the Chinese political discourse. First of all, this study extracts key semantic domains and keywords based on an online corpus processing program, Wmatrix. Second, metaphorical surface frames are identified in line with MIPVU, and then conceptual metaphors are summarized. It is found that the metaphorical frames WAR, ARCHITECTURE, and JOURNEY are activated in The2021 Report on the Work of the Government by the use of such metaphorical words and expressions as a battle, lift out of, build, consolidate, speed up and step. This way of discourse framing is intended to construct the image of the Chinese government as a “leader” who encourages the Chinese people to join as “participants” in the state building. The traditional Chinese moral notion of Gongtianxia, 'the world being equally shared by all,' is the root of the discourse framing.

Abstract:
This phenomenological research aimed to explore single blessedness as a lived experience in lay institutes of the Roman Catholics. An interview was used as the primary tool for extracting the meaning of single blessedness among laywomen. There were twelve (12) cases selected to undergo data saturation for emerging themes and categories. Findings revealed two categories of single blessedness—to serve God and serve the family. Having the desire to serve God and the community, especially the poorest of the poor, the unmarried female members in Roman Catholic lay institutes had shown their charity through opportunities to be with the needy, have prayerful reflection and discernment, and offer their God-given talents to others. Their experience of reluctance to respond to this vertical call led to uneasiness and incompleteness. Meanwhile, another cohort of women found blessedness as a choice to selflessly serve their family while enjoying independence and autonomy. This was described as a traversal free from worries and other responsibilities and full of filial love from friends and family members. Staying single for the rest of their lives, these women described daily life as prayerful and charitable or chaste and pure in words and deeds with a strong and decisive commitment to work for their families and the poor. Nevertheless, these women, in blessed singleness, nourished themselves as well as prayers, positive relationships with themselves and others, their families, and most especially God.

Abstract:
“The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson and “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas” by Ursula Kroeber Le Guin are two stories depicting societies in which adhering to the traditionally imposed ‘scapegoating’ ritual ensures the prosperity of the majority of the population. Previous researches that analyzed the two texts, singularly or in tandem, predominantly emphasize the human capacity for evil as inherent in these communities through their traditions and some, admittedly, highlight the impact these traditions have on the individuals living in such communities. But no research has used the postulations of Friedrich Nietzsche in this regard. This paper intends to provide insight into this unexplored area by investigating the communities portrayed in the two stories, their respective traditional values and the community members in light of Nietzsche’s ‘master-slave morality.’ The purpose of this research is to find out how traditions exist in those communities, how these traditions are constituted by particular values, how these values are, in turn, enforced by these traditions, how those values correspond to the Nietzschean concepts, how the members represent different Nietzschean types, and how they respond to the aforementioned values. Thus, the theoretical framework is based on Nietzsche’s categorization of human beings into ‘master type and slave type’ categories as well as his theorization of ‘master-slave morality.’ Some definitional understanding of ‘tradition’, ‘master’ and ‘authority’ assist in this regard as well. The discourse of “The Lottery” as well as “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas” has been considered in light of such theoretical and conceptual understandings to assess the dynamics of the communities they depict. This paper’s investigation of the communities & the members found in “The Lottery” and “The Ones Who Walk Away From Omelas” shows that – traditions existing in those societies enforce particular values & these values, in turn, sustain those traditions; some of the members, e.g. – Tessie, who protests against the stoning ritual & the ones in Omelas who show dissatisfaction with the child’s cruel treatment, can be categorized to be master types as theorized by Nietzsche and the ones to comply with the scapegoating process(es) can be categorized as slave types. This adherence by the slave types and the consequential peaceful prosperity implicates the values being discussed as Nietzschean slave values. This study further shows that the scapegoating ritual(s) is imbued with a utilitarian stipulation for the ‘greater good for the greater number’ which creates a moral judgment & this moral judgment is used by the slave types to justify their complicity in the seemingly required cruelty and by the community itself to dominate the master types, as a result of which the master types are faced with a duality of choices – to accept the traditions of their communities, or to leave.

Abstract:
As the fourth most populous country globally, the country has a very high number of traffic accidents. Casualties due to accidents in Indonesia are more than the number of victims of terrorism, tsunamis, and floods. The number of traffic accident casualties in Indonesia is about 28-30 thousand people per year, ranking second among the countries in ASEAN. In Indonesia, traffic accidents, especially those involving motorcyclists, are relatively high. Even if there are 1 million incidents in one day, then 2.76 percent occur in Indonesia, with the average victim being in the productive age between 15 to 22 years. Road Safety Association is a non-governmental organization that conducts social marketing communication activities in campaigning for safe driving.

Transnational crimes involving networks in several countries require cooperation at regional and international levels. As the central point in implementing international cooperation, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs must support all parties in implementing the one-door policy. The problems of this study are how the cooperation between ASEAN countries in dealing with transnational crime and what efforts are made. This study aims to explain that TOC has become an essential issue in International Relations, describe the spread of TOC and those related to TOC c., and inform that the TOC issue can threaten human security. This type of research is descriptive analysis. Collecting data is carried out by a literature study. Besides, the data analysis process is carried out by testing, selecting, categorizing, evaluating, comparing, synthesizing, and reflecting on the data (completing the coded data). The most significant criminal crimes in ASEAN are drug trafficking, human trafficking, maritime piracy, and terrorism. All of these problems are essentially related to each other. These problems must also be viewed in the right way so as not to be wrong in finding and applying the solution.

Abstract:
This systematic review discusses sociolinguistics as a crucial factor in the translation and analysis of texts. It mainly directs to synthesizing relevant studies and literature on Sociolinguistics as a crucial factor that affects the translation and interpretation of texts. Sociolinguistics plays a vital role in the translation and analysis of texts. It defines what is adequate to be translated through selection, filtering, and even censorship. It becomes the body of translating the text from one target language to another since one’s culture differs from another; social factors become a major problem if the text is translated without consideration of the studying sociolinguistics. However, since the cultural approach in translation has received criticisms previously, there is a call for more information that can contribute to the existing knowledge on how it still could be improved. Hence, this systematic review gathered and scrutinized recent and relevant studies from various databases that present translation using cultural lenses and paradigms as well as translation inconsistencies. The collected studies consist of qualitative and quantitative studies. This review reiterates Sociolinguistics as a fresh perspective and crucial factor in translation, including analysis of texts. The study's subjects include a variety of pragmatic factors that influence the essence of translation as a communicative process: the translator's ideologies and bias toward the target audience: the pragmatics of source Text and Translated Text language units, including the role of gender in translation which all correlate with social and situation stratification.

Abstract:
Indonesia's border areas are underdeveloped areas with limited infrastructure and social and economic facilities. Moreover, some areas tend to be poor people and are oriented toward neighbouring countries. This study aims to determine the background of the border dispute between Indonesia and Malaysia in Camar Bulan and Tanjung Datu and to determine the basis of Indonesia's demands for border disputes in Camar Bulan and Tanjung Datu. Additionally, the research method used is descriptive analysis, and library sources are conducted to collect the data. The results show that the prospect of dispute resolution in the Camar Bulan and Tanjung Datu areas will be slow. This condition is because the government's development is not accompanied by the affirmation of boundaries, maintenance of the boundary markers, and strengthening of Indonesia's diplomatic power, so thus the development will certainly be obstructed.

Abstract:
Based on Fairclough's three-dimensional critical discourse analysis model, this study investigates China's image in the English translation of the country leader's New Year Greetings from 2014 to 2021. The method of corpus linguistics is applied, and the English modal system from the systemic functional perspective is employed. The study reveals that the country's image is hardworking, enjoying good governance and social harmony, pursuing peace and development, as well as international cooperation, which can be reflected in the use of high-frequency content words, keywords, and modal verbs in the discourse. The county's image construction in the translation discourse is influenced by translators, media, and sociocultural factors.

Abstract:
Globalization is the process of interconnectedness. For example, an event in one part of the world will also affect other parts of the world. Each member of the society will be affected by an event that occurred in another society. This phenomenon can be seen in a civil society movement in England caused by an event outside their country, which was the tragedy of the Rana Plaza collapse in Bangladesh in 2013. The new social movement and transnational advocacy were the theoretical approaches used to analyze behavioural patterns in English civil society. This research used the qualitative method to reveal that civil society could be part of transnational advocacy within the similarity of the issue. They used campaigns and advocacy to fight for Rana Plaza workers' rights.

Abstract:
This article is in line with the problem of the conflicts between tradition and modernity on the legal-judicial level. It is based on the legal functionalist theory, which advocates, among other things, the rejection of the legal-judicial system based on positive law and the dependence of the customary system on institutional power. It answers the question of why and how indigenous litigants challenge the positive law embodied in institutional justice and questions possible reconciliations between this law and custom through paradigmatic models of judicial pluralism. This issue was identified through oral information gathered from the field, legal texts, and written sources from articles, books, reports, and dissertations. The results of the study indicate that customary laws, customary judges, and customary courts are muzzled at all levels by the principles of institutional justice based on positive law. Dissatisfied with this situation, there is a proliferation of dispute resolution offices that make use of local customs while escaping state control. The reconciliation of custom and positive law, according to the litigants and the traditional judges, requires the valorization of customary judges, the unification of customary courts with those of the law, and the confrontation of the two sources of law before any verdict.
