Lexical entrainment

Lexical entrainment is the phenomenon in conversational linguistics of the process of the subject adopting the reference terms of their interlocutor. In practice, it acts as a mechanism of the cooperative principle in which both parties to the conversation employ lexical entrainment as a progressive system to develop "conceptual pacts" to ensure maximum clarity of reference in the communication between the parties. Lexical entrainment arises by two cooperative mechanisms: Embedded corrections – a reference to the object implied by the context of the sentence, but with no explicit reference to the change in terminology Exposed corrections – an explicit reference to the change in terminology including a request to assign the referent a common term Once lexical entrainment has come to determine the phrasing for a referent, both parties will use that terminology for the referent for the duration if it proceeds to violate the Gricean maxim of quantity. For example, if one wants to refer to a brown loafer out of a set of shoes that consist of: the loafer, a sneaker, a high-heeled shoe, they will not use the shoe to describe the object as this phrasing does not unambiguously describe one item in the set under consideration.

They will not call the object the brown loafer which would violate Grice's maxim of quantity. The speaker will settle on using the term the loafer as it is just informative enough without giving too much information. Another important factor is lexical availability. For many objects the most available labels are basic nouns. Instead of saying animal or husky for the referent, most subjects will default to dog. If in a set of objects one is to refer to either a husky, a table, a poster, people are still most to use the word "dog." This is technically a violation of Grice's maxim of quantity. Lexical entrainment has applications in natural language processing in computers as well as human–human interaction; the adaptability of computers to modify their referencing to the terms of their human interlocutor is limited, so the entrainment adaptation falls to the human operator.

Digital world

The phrase digital world is most used in digital pedagogy when defining the need for digital citizenship, digital fluency, digital literacy. The digital world is the availability and use of digital tools to communicate on the Internet, digital devices, smart devices and other technologies. Humanities and education discussions of the'digital world' tend to create variations when categorizing and defining the mass of mediated technologies and human interactions that are suggested as part of the digital world; the phrase ` digital world' is used loosely as a mass noun with variations. An informal example is devices given to toddlers entering the digital world. Formal usage includes educational policies referring to the digital world in standardizing digital access. Children suffering a lack of access to the digital world are part of the digital divide; the One Laptop per Child program is an example of inclusion for children living in poverty and suffering as part of the digital divide. The phrase digital world was being used in electrical engineering studies before the creation of the World Wide Web.

It was used to describe the prevalence of digital electronic devices as opposed to analogue electronic devices. Articles relating to education in the digital world became more common in the 1990s.

Naskh (tafsir)

Naskh is an Arabic word translated as "abrogation". In Islamic legal exegesis, naskh is a theory developed to resolve contradictory rulings of Islamic revelation by superseding or canceling the earlier revelation. In the recognized and "classic" form of naskh, an Islamic regulation/ruling is abrogated in favor of another, but the text the hukm is based on is not eliminated; some examples of Islamic rulings based on naskh include a gradual ban on consumption of alcohol, a change in the direction that should be faced when praying salat. A text or ruling, abrogated is called mansukh. Several Quranic verses state that some revelations have been abrogated and superseded by revelations, narrations from Muhammad's companions mention abrogated verses or rulings of the religion; the principle of abrogation of an older verse by a new verse in the Quran, or within the Hadiths is an accepted principle of all four Sunni maḏāhib or schools of fiqh, was an established principle in Sharia by at least the 9th century.

However, with few exceptions, Islamic revelations do not state which Quranic verses or hadith have been abrogated, Muslim exegetes and jurists have disagreed over which and how many hadith and verses of the Quran are recognized as abrogated, with estimates varying from less than ten to over 500. Other issues of disagreement include whether the Quran can be abrogated by the Sunnah, or vice versa — a disagreement between the Shafi'i and Hanafi schools of fiqh. In the Arabic language naskh can be defined as abolition, abrogation, invalidation, transcription, according to the Hans Wehr Dictionary of Modern Written Arabic; as an Islamic term, there is a lack of agreement among scholars on what al-Naskh is. According to Louay Fatoohi, "the term naskh never appears in the Qur’an in the meaning it acquired in Islamic law". A detailed examination of the two Quranic verses "seen by scholars as providing support to the principle of abrogation", shows that neither refers to "the concept of abrogation".

Israr Ahmad Khan states that those who have read "the works of Abu Ubayd, al-Nahhas, Ibn al-Arabi, Ibn al-Jawzi, al-Zarkashi, al-Suyuti, al-Dehlawi on the issue of abrogation will be confused regarding its definition". John Burton complains that the "greatest imaginable confusion reigns as to the definition of the term naskh", that "an appalling degree of muddle" surrounds the meaning of verse Q.2:106 — "the Abrogation verse". And that "the constant confusion of'suppression' with'supersession'" causes the reader "endless difficulty". Ahmad Ali Al-Imam states "most scholars... differ on many points", of naskh, "particularly on its meaning and examples". Disputes over what defines naskh include whether the wording of the Quran can be abrogated while the ruling based on it is not, whether a verse in the Qur'an can abrogate a ruling in the Sunnah and vice versa — which means going across the two different forms of divine revelation, whether any Islamic revelation may be abrogated at all, or whether when God talks about replacing revelation He is referring only to revelation which came before the Quran, and, replaced by the Quran.

Another issue was how broadly naskh should be defined, with early Muslim scholars having including things that scholars did not consider naskh, such as: exceptions to earlier verses, particularization of the meaning of a verse, clarifications of earlier verses. Definitions of naskh given by Islamic scholars include: "abrogation, repeal. Theoretical tool used to resolve contradictions in Quranic verses, hadith literature and usul al-fiqh, whereby verses abrogate earlier ones,". "lifting a ruling indicated by a shar‘i text, on the basis of evidence from the Qur’an or Sunnah", "obliteration, transfer, suspension" depending on the context,.
