A language is a system of signs endowed with meaning (if they did not have meaning, they would not be signs). But what is meaning? This is the question that occupies the philosophers of language, whose research has inspired contemporary linguistics.
The word language first designates the human faculty to express his thought by means of a code or any communication system (for example, a language). Language is also a way of expressing oneself specific to a social group, a professional group or the members of a discipline (administrative, legal language).

Paper Title :: Societal Apology (vs. Official Apology) in the Context of Collective Political Violence

How can we address the destructive psychological repertoire formed in the wake of dictatorships, colonialism, genocide and conflicts? To that end, societal apology (SA) is suggested, meaning, an apology offered by society members of the involved parties, in contrast to an official apology (OA), one that is offered by the formal leaders of the parties (leaders, many of whom are still reluctant to apologize). SA could have many important positive impacts, such as transmitting a peace oriented message to the recipient-SA-party; among the apologizing party members, the SA campaign could lead to a more critical examination of the past; expressing SA could ameliorate the image of the apologizing-party internationally; and promote the expression of OA by the initially SA apologizing-party. These positive impacts could partially heal the above repertoire and consequently promote peace, reconciliation and wellbeing.

Paper Title :: The Explanations written by students in their exercise books regarding diagrams of the relationships of weight and volume of bodies immersed in water
Author Name :: Andreas Marinos
Country :: Cyprus
Page Number :: 27-37
Discussion of the pupils‟ way of thinking and their mistakes in concepts related to the maintenance of or change in volume “discontinuous quantities (of liquids)” takes place with the written explanations given by the pupils considering that they have a container which contains water up to a certain height. It is observed that the pupils are confused and think that we have a change in volume if we use different materials even when we tell them that we have the same volume. They also find it difficult to recognize that two materials of the same weight but of different substance will occupy the same volume. The students carried out the experiment and wrote it up on worksheets, considering that the bodies are immersed in containers of water.

Author Name :: Srinivasan Venkatesan
Country :: India
Page Number :: 38-45
Employment is both a need as well as the right to work for an individual. Persons with intellectual disabilities experience many barriers or challenges to secure and retain a stable remunerative job. The field of disability rehabilitation has minimally attempted to showcase or record appropriate models of employment and their ability to perform when given an opportunity. This theoretical article attempts to outlines the relative merits, demerits, problems, issues, challenges, and limitations involved in the various attempts to their employment in India. If there are sentiment-loaded opinions that such persons are incapable and, therefore, not to be burdened with work, others describe them as unexploited human capital with the right to work rthat has to be identified and respected. Each approach is defined, explained, illustrated, and discussed by focusing on the targeted persons with intellectual disabilities.

Page Number :: 49-53
With this study, we try to understand the impact of using the EKUI methodology on the literacy of a child with Trisomy 21. We carried out a case study, applied to a child attending the 1st year of schooling, supported by an action research methodology. Semi-structured interviews were carried out with the head teacher, the speech therapist and the parents, to collect information on the literacy methods used with the child. These helped us to plan the various intervention sessions that we later carried out with the child using the EKUI methodology. The results obtained show that this methodology has contributed to progress in terms of literacy, communication and inclusion, as well as reasoning and visual perception.
