Latin was one of the languages of choice but in literature it began to change early in the twelfth century. The language beginning to be used was easily understood by all who read this particular literature. Because it was an understood and easy language it spread throughout Europe and Italy. The impact of this changed language would go on to impact a variety of areas including cultures.

Latin originated in Rome mainly used in Latium, Rome. It was used as early as the 6th century in the Etruscan alphabet (Ager 2012). Its capacity was spread over other areas of Italy, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East as an ordinary language for everyone (Ager). The alphabet had 23 letters: A B C D E F G H I K L M N O P Q R S T V X Y Z with none being lower case letters, the I and V were consonants and vowels, K, X, Y, and Z were used to write Greek words, and the name Julius as it known to us today was spelled IVLIVS (Ager). The vernacular language was the language that had pushed in front of the Latin language. It was easily understood because it was written in the language used by those within the region respectively. The vernacular language is the dialect used for that particular region whether it was Spanish, French, Neapolitan or Italian to name a few (Matthews, 2012). Some examples of these languages are a poem from the Italian dialect is ritmo cassinese, ritmo which means the rhymes within the verses and cassinese derives from cassino which means the abbey of Monte Cassino and can still be found at this abbey, and a Neapolitan song Canto delle lavendale del Vomero by Roberto Murolo which goes as: Tu m`aje prommiso quatto moccatore Oje moccatore. Oje moccatore Io so` benuto se, io so benuto Se me lovuo` dare, melo vuo` dare…...

... american intercontinental university | HISTORICAL FOUNDATIONS | LATIN AMERICA | | Sherry | 6/20/2013 | There are several factors that are responsible for the rise of the vernacular language. The French were the first do their literacy work in the vernacular language. Vernacular language spread throughout Europe by the 14th century. | Historical Foundations- Latin America For many years the Latin language was dominating the western world. It had a very large impact on the medieval way of life. The ones that lived the farthest away began going through the changes first. There were a lot of people that chose to use their vernacular language rather than Latin. The English had several vernaculars at this time. Depending on which social class you were in, was the vernacular language that you used. Germany started using the vernacular language as early as the eighth century. The vernacular language was being used in most of Europe by the fourteenth century. They weren’t worried so much about the grammar and spelling though, they were just concerned that the people with different languages would be able to read and to understand a very common language and communicate with each other. There was a big impact on the cultures due to the vernacular languages. The Latin language seemed to be disappearing, but with three possible outcomes. They thought that fewer people would be literate and hold power over the ones that couldn’t use it. They were thinking that maybe everyone......

...I choose to write my foundations paper on an organization that is based in my area that I live in, and although it is in my area it is not just a local organization but one that actually has the ability to span across the nation with support from local companies, as well as government agencies. The organization with which I am speaking is the Freestore Foodbank. I will go into the details of the non-profit organization in further detail in this paper. The Freestore began in 1971 by a man named Frank Gerson who worked in Cincinnati’s incinerator. He saw that there was too many household items that were being wasted when there were so many in his community that needed help. So this man quit his job, and started the non-profit business out of his apartment. By 1979 it had grown too big for his little apartment to handle, so he decided to get a warehouse to handle the sorting, and distribution of the food items for his community. Also at this time the Freestore became a founding member of Feeding America, which helped the organization evolve into the Freestore Foodbank. Today the Freestore is one of over 200 foodbanks within the Feeding America networks, which helps serve communities across the whole nation, not just in the Cincinnati area. They distribute over 19 million meals through a network of 275 community agencies. www.fsfb.org. This is an astonishing number of meals that are handed out to those that are going hungry, which is the organizations main mission. No one......

Historical Materialism

...and heavy, the river floods, bursts its banks, and may take a new course. This represents the dialectical part of Marx’s famous theory of dialectical (or historical) materialism." Historical materialism is a methodological approach to the study of society, economics, and history first articulated by Karl Marx (1818–1883) as the materialist conception of history. It is a theory of socioeconomic development according to which changes in material conditions (technology and productive capacity) are the primary influence on how society and the economy are organised. Historical materialism looks for the causes of developments and changes in human society in the means by which humans collectively produce the necessities of life. Social classes and the relationship between them, plus the political structures and ways of thinking in society, are founded on and reflect contemporary economic activity. Since Marx's time, the theory has been modified and expanded by thousands of Marxist thinkers. It now has many Marxist and non-Marxist variants. Objectives of Study: • To define Historical Materialism. • To discuss about the basic philosophy behind the concept of historical Materialism by Karl Marx. • To study about the Recent Versions of Historical Materialism. • To findout the limitations of the Concept of Historical Materialism. Research Methodology: This project work is descriptive & analytical in approach. It is largely based on secondary & study of books......

...This was my first footstep of starting my degree life. First day of attending the Foundation of Business course, the feeling of tension filled me up. The main reason was because I have to adapt the new course and environment. This course is taught by Ms. Khor Siu Gek, an approachable and friendly lecturer. When I first glance over the module guide, this is quite a different course since it contains 100% coursework mark. In the first lecture class, Ms. Khor explained about what we are going to do throughout this course. The 100% coursework mark is divided into four categories which are portfolio, group project, essay on a given assignment and attendance. We need to provide evidence such as draft, notes and pictures as a proof to show the accomplishment of learning process. Some activities will be carried out in every tutorial class to ensure that students are participating in classes. Then, we need to express our feeling and provide relevant theories learnt in the reflective report weekly. This is to improve our learning skills, communication skills, time management skills and critical thinking skills. I can still remember clearly that Ms. Khor had made the introduction part became very interesting. She gave us a roll of toilet paper and asked us to take how many pieces we wanted to take. I felt nervous because I did not know what activities would be carried out. Finally, I took a piece of toilet paper. After that, she asked us to tell our secret according to the number of...

Foundations of Mythology

...Foundations of Mythology Jovon Laurent HUM/105 Feb 2, 2015 Marianne Murawski Foundations of Mythology Merriam-Webster online dictionary (Merriam-Webster mobile search, n.d.) , describes a myth as, “a usually traditional story of ostensibly historical events that serves to unfold part of the world view of people or explain a practice, belief, or natural phenomenon”. A myth is perceived very differently depending on where a person lives their culture, values and lifestyle. In Western society today the word is popularly used to describe a story or tale that has no authenticity or is not true. Academically, a myth is an effort to answer the questions of human existence (Rosenberg, 2006). Personally speaking, the word myth means an exaggerated story that has been told from generation to generation with no truth to it, but often times sends a very meaningful message or moral that can be used in life. There are many mythological themes that span from culture to culture, but the most common theme is the plot of good versus evil. Different cultures may have different characters, but the plot of the story is always the "good guy" struggling to overcome some kind of obstacle, that will eventually make him a better person, while at the same time fighting against the "bad guy". In the end, the story delivers a message or moral to the readers about life. Across the different cultures, the storyline and the characters may be different, but there is always a moral......

Foundations of Nursing

...How does knowledge of the foundations and history of nursing provide a context in which to understand current practice? Identify at least three trends in nursing practice from the "Nursing Timeline of Historical Events" media piece. How have these trends influenced your perspective of nursing practice? Knowledge of the foundations and history of nursing helps to provide nurses with an understanding of how nursing became established, how current practices were put into place and became effective, and enables you to see the significant changes that were taking place to make nursing into a profession. According to the “Nursing Timeline of Historical Events,” it was interesting to find out that nursing started being performed by people who were considered to be uneducated, unaccepted, and lower class. In comparing nursing to to now, it has became a profession that requires a lot to become licensed to practice. It has a very intense curriculum, skills training, and requires testing in order to become licensed to practice. There have been so many changes within the nursing profession and continue to change daily. Some of the changes on the “Nursing Timeline of Historical Events” and current practices today include changes in education, uniforms, and technology. As far as education, nursing was once completed by people who were uneducated and now the you are required to at a minimum receive an associate degree and pass a licensure exam.

Historical Laws

...Historical Laws and Security Melissa Church CJS/250 Rich Montcalm July. 27, 2015 Historical Laws and Security In a brief description, here you will find the following laws in which they were originated. Civilizations throughout time have found it necessary to establish a set of laws dependent on their society's religious beliefs, social structure, setting, and other variables. Magna Carta (Latin for Great Charter, literally "Great Paper"), also called Magna Carta Liber Tatum (Great Charter of Freedoms), is an English legal charter, originally issued in the year 1215. It was written in Latin. Magna Carta required King John of England to proclaim certain rights (pertaining to nobles and barons), respect certain legal procedures, and accept that his will could be bound by the law. It explicitly protected certain rights of the King's subjects, whether free or fettered most notably the writ of habeas corpus, allowing appeal against unlawful imprisonment that led to the rule of constitutional law today in the English speaking world. The earliest legal system known in its entirety is the Code of Hammurabi which was established in ancient Babylonia nearly 4000 years ago. The Code of Hammurabi was compiled by King Hammurabi himself. Hammurabi was the most notable ruler of the first Babylonian dynasty, and unified Mesopotamia under one central government. Hammurabi's life is unknown, it is predicted that he established his reign around 1792-1750 B.C., thus dating the Code to......

The Foundation...

...Joshua Lecour 15 October 2015 Essay #2 The majority of adults today have a stable home life, which helps to build a stable foundation by the time they reach grade school. That’s all in thanks to having loving and caring parents, grandparents and caretakers to guide kids so that they can preform at the highest levels in life, especially scholastically. In a perfect world having a solid system like this to build on would be the perfect catapult for success in America’s school systems. Unfortunately, most children in the inner cities aren’t blessed to have a stable home because of the absence of consistent parental figures in the house. Sometimes these households have one parent within them because of divorce or other more saddening circumstance like the death of a parent. Death leads to an absence within a child life that will persist into their adult life. Despite the timing or reason behind these situations they greatly affect a child’s confidence, self-esteem and self worth. Instability within the household causes a child to suffer anxiety disorders and self-confidence issues, depending on the situations that occur like physical or substance abuse by the parent, which is taken with them into the classroom. This kind of conditioning at home also shapes the ability to interact with other students in a positive or negative way, which also leads to poor academic and social standing within a school setting. The easiest way to remedy the issues of poor performance in school......

...RUNNING HEADER: Historical Historical Foundations Lisa Sayeh American InterContinental University RUNNING HEADER: Historical Abstract In the Twelfth century Latin was revered as the language of the times. Spreading to different sections of the population resulted in different dialects that became unrecognizable to everyone. Later in the century there were few people who were considered to be literate and they are the ones who help higher positions. RUNNING HEADER: Historical Latin language was the way of communication in the Twelfth century, having a higher demand for communication and the official language of the government, business, education and religion within Western France. With Latin being the living language of the times borrowing dialects from other areas, made it harder for locals in one area to be understood in another location. Just like with any language there are differences from one area to the next. The readings were intended and composed for a specific audience; the chivalric writing of the High Middle Ages was built on the earlier traditions, while integrating ancient roots based on the literature that was sung by the courtly bards. Latin was mainly influenced by the Greek; however Western Europe had a big influence from so far away. This was back in the Golden Age ranging from 70 BCE to 14CE, with poets and prose writers became a huge part in the heritage and the educational heritage from this time. These pose writings are the work of...

Historical Foundations

...Historical Foundations Laketa Byrd American InterContinental University Abstract Latin was once the official language used in religion, education, law, business and government until the sixteenth century. Although Latin’s were able to adapt to the native language of other regions, the Latin language became less used and less recognizable to people and many vernacular languages were already beginning to form and spread. Because the vernacular language was easier for anyone to be able to read and write, it became the native language in the later part of the middle ages. Before this time, most texts and literature was written by either the French or Latin and only by those that were superior in literacy and education, professional and rich as they were the main ones using and able to read and write in Latin. When average everyday people started learning how to read and write, they created their own language as a way of communicating with each other, the vernacular language. This language was later used in in everyday life. In this report, I’ll discuss the origin of the vernacular language, how it became widespread and the impact this language had on society, religion and the Latin language. Historical Foundations Latin was once the only language of the Roman Catholic Church and was one of many common languages being used to worship God and was mainly used among the rich and those that were educated and highly literate to help people......

Historical Foundations

...Candice Prestel Historical Foundations DB 2 Dr. Kimberly Roff September 1, 2012 A class of medieval lyric poets, called troubadours, flourished principally in southern France, eastern Spain and northern Italy from the 11th to 13th centuries (Dictionary.com, 2012). They wrote songs and poems of a complex metrical form in langue d’oc, mainly about courtly love. In courtly love the lover sees his ability to resist these temptations and rise above his own base humanity as evidence of his spiritual purity (Syre, 2013). According to Syre (2013), “The smitten knight or nobleman must be willing to perform any deed to win his lady’s favor, the lady often being his lord’s wife”. The trobairitz is the female version of the troubadour but their poems were mainly focused on romantic love (Dictionary.com, 2012). The trobairitz used poetry to share stories of romantic longing and unattainable love, focusing on the feelings associated with romantic love such as longing, suffering, and a desire to do whatever possible to have the feeling of love reciprocated (Career Education Corporation, 2010). The troubadours are said to have “invented” romantic love as we know it today by the conventions and vocabulary that we use to describe it (Syre, 2013). According to Syre (2013), “to love is to suffer, to wander aimlessly, unable to concentrate on anything but the mental image of the beloved, to give up life for a dream”. While reducing women to barely more than objects of male......
