The so-called geguritan (traditional Balinese poetry) didactic function in Candra Bhairawa manuscript attempts to fulfill the mabebasan tradition's ideas of justice as instruction. The Geguritan Candra Bhairawa manuscript serves as a didactic medium for the author's messages and counsel. Its goal is to deliver an educational message to its readers that include the ideals of life's philosophy. This study's findings concern the didactic function of literature as a medium capable of directing or educating its readers. Teaching is accomplished by reading and developing literary works that contain the values of life philosophy. The mabebasan tradition serves several educational purposes in society, one of which serves as a graphic symbol (expression of feelings). Authors construct literary works by infusing each of their poems with messages, mandates directed to literary readers or the population. The Geguritan Candra Bhairawa manuscript didactic functions in the mabebasan tradition are expressed through expressive symbols during the five-day event, namely: (a) to preserve a cultural legacy through the mabebasan tradition; (b) as a moral compass for a society founded on noble values; (c) as a supplement to the yajna ceremony's five gita method.

Yue Wang, Kaili Fan
Page Numbers : 292-298
DOI : 10.36348/sijll.2021.v04i09.005
In recent years, against the backdrop of the rapid development of telecommunication tools as well as the onset and continued existence of COVID-19, the way people communicate has been greatly changed. In cross-cultural and multi-lingual settings, remote interpreting is playing an increasingly important role, and for interpreters, the way of obtaining information becomes multi-dimensional as the source texts come in various modes. The paper, therefore, intends to observe the performance of a professional simultaneous interpreter at an online world dental conference, with the focus on how the interpreter deals with multimodal source information and the subsequent interpreting strategies. It is hoped that the research could provide insights on multimodal interpreting research and suggestions for better remote interpreting practices in the future.

The discourse of the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokespersons is not only an important means to convey China’s attitude, but also one of the important subjects to construct China’s national image. The discourse of the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokespersons conveys China’s value orientation to the whole world. From the perspective of critical pragmatics, this article aims to analyze how the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokespersons construct China’s national image in the aspect of discourse with the support of speech act theory. Taking the origin-tracing issue of COVID-19 as an example, the study found that the Chinese Foreign Ministry spokespersons use the performative verbs of assertives, dierctives and commissives in their discourse to construct a responsible China’s national image of seeking truth from facts, acting transparently, respecting for science and actively carrying out cooperation.

DOI : 10.36348/sijll.2021.v04i09.007
In the comparative study of Chinese and English in China, more studies focus on the meaning of words themselves, but less study on the comparison of the pairs of synonyms. Based on the collocative meaning in Leech’s seven types of meanings in semantics, this article will take the Chinese characters “红” “赤”, the English words “red” and “scarlet” as examples to analyze the differences in commendatory and derogatory meanings between Chinese and English synonyms. In this way, we can analyze the linguistic characteristics of the degree to which the Chinese and English are affected by collocative meaning.

Page Numbers : 308-317
DOI : 10.36348/sijll.2021.v04i09.008
There are different phonological processes across Tshivenḓa linguistics, however, this paper only focuses on vowel processes involving syllable structure or syllabification in Tshivenḓa. When a syllable is affected by any phonological phenomena, it is either reduction, deletion or glide formation that takes place. This study explores three vowel phonological processes affecting syllable structure in Tshivenḓa, namely; vowel deletion, vowel epenthesis and glide formation. The in-depth of this study will add to the literature of Tshivenḓa linguistics and to the knowledge of the scientific study of language. Qualitative data was gathered through the use of phonological field work. The Optimality Theory is the framework underpinning this study.

Tian Dong, Peiyu Wang

DOI : 10.36348/sijll.2021.v04i09.009
With the development of society, women's social roles have gradually changed. The vacancy of appellation words accompanying this change has gradually become apparent. The lack of an appellation corresponding to 师母 is one of these phenomena. On the basis of previous studies, this article discusses the question of how to choose the personal deixis for the appellation terms corresponding to 师母 under the guidance of pragmatic principles, which provides a new way for the complement of the appellation corresponding to 师母. Through the analysis of this article, the author believes that it is difficult to choose a perfect appellation corresponding to 师母 in the contemporary society where the relation between people is relatively complicated and the social hierarchy is also a complicated affair.
