This study entitled “Power Relation In Jacques Lob’s Snowpiercer” is about social issues between passengers in front sections to tail sections, depicted through the story and characters in this novel. In this study, there are two questions to be answered: The forms of power relationships shown in Jacques Lob's novel Snowpiercer and the individuals involved. The purpose of this study is to look at the many forms of power relationships and the persons that are involved in them using numerous characters from the novel. The author applies Michel Foucault's (1977) theory to illustrate how passengers in front and back sections interact in terms of power. The descriptive technique is used in this study, and extrinsic approaches are used. The findings reveal that there are two distinct forms of power relationships. To begin with, sovereign power is a sort of authority that has total control over all persons in a community. Second, disciplinary authority seeks to establish discipline bodies. The outcome also exposes that certain characters have manipulated information and truth via the use of power relationships.

This study looks at symbolic violence in Alex Urban's novel The Kingfisher Secret. In Alex Urban's work The Kingfisher Secret, the author investigates the emergence of symbolic violence and analyzes Bourdieu's capital and habitus. To assist the understanding of symbolic violence, this research employs Pierre Bourdieu's symbolic violence idea, as well as habitus, field, and capital theory. This study employs Wellek and Warren's extrinsic method, in which literary material is examined from a social perspective. The author employs a descriptive qualitative technique to locate symbolic violence. The findings demonstrate that in Alex Urban's work The Kingfisher Secrets, symbolic violence is portrayed by offering a present (gift exchange), expressing compassion, delivering an order (indirect command), and respectfully declining. The habitus is brutally capitalistic, rationalizing any means and aspirations to improve one's life and circumstances. The agency uses symbolic violence to achieve its goals and gain dominance.

??? Yehang Chuan ‘Night Ferry’ is an encyclopaedic masterpiece and the chef-d’oeuvre of ?? Zhang Dai (circa 1597-1689), an illustrious historian, poet, dramatist, essayist, aesthete, musician and gastronomist in late Ming and early Qing China. Night Ferry cumulates more than four thousand entries and encompasses a veritable cornucopia of topics in an elephantine range. In this research, I investigate Chapter Twenty ?? Fang Shu ‘Alchemy and Sorcery’ of Night Ferry, which comprises Section ?? Fu Zhou ‘Amulets and Incantations’ and Section ?? Fang Fa ‘Prescriptions and Practices’. Both sections abound with depictions pertaining to occult acts and paranormal forces, the vast majority of which embody cultural allusions concerning religion, divination and patriarchy. Furthermore, Chapter ‘Alchemy and Sorcery’ is featured by humorousness, though Night Ferry is not a dedicated jestbook. The humorous effect in Night Ferry is not attained via sarcasm or homo-/hetero-erotism, as manifested by derisive and prurient jokes compiled in a renowned pre-modern jestbook entitled ????Xiao Lin Guang Ji ‘A Collection of Classic Chinese Jokes’.

This study is intended to investigate the difficulties encountered by the students of English department in transcribing words in connected speech where assimilation occurs. The assimilation investigated is limited to alveolars /t, d, n) to the neighbouring sound palatal /j, k,g/. Pronouncing words in connected speech is one of the problems that show up in learning EFL. The way words are spoken in isolation and in connected speech may differ significantly. Dealt with the difference, there are two questions to answer in this study. Question one is how students transcribe words in connected speech where assimilation occurs; question two is to describe what sound is assimilated to what sound. To answer the question of the study, descriptive qualitative design is applied. Data were collected from 50 students by giving 7 sentences to transcribe where assimilation occurs in a part of the sentences. Students were asked to transcribe the whole sentences and describe what sound has been assimilated to what sound. The result shows that 18 students can transcribe correctly the phonetic transcription of the assimilated sounds and describe what sound is assimilated to what sound. There are 32 students who transcribe the sentences as isolated words and cannot show where assimilation occurs. Thus, there is no description of the assimilation by these students. It leads to say that knowledge of pronouncing words in connected speech is poor. This suggests improvement by giving more practices in pronouncing not only individual words but words in connected speech. Students also need listening exercises to crosscheck the transcription they make while listening.

Narratives that we hear, connect dots to complete a civilisational story. Narrative strategies on Indian heritage of about 1000 years need to be revisited as newer counter narratives need to be factored in. If we examine our case of Sa?m Veda (ancient Veda singing date not known) and Dhrupad (probably from around 300 BC and still extant) through a natively ordered narrative framework. However, newer globalised narratives are ordered in such a manner that the story sounds strange to natives. The paper points out that this might often not be a clash of historical method and tradition, but focalisation or mere agenda. Also we often see narrators may not represent knowledge, being mistaken for the source of knowledge. For instance, a person trained in the Khaya?l singing tradition telling the story of Dhrupad or even Sa?ma Ga?na. This may involve focalisation.
