hopes, which Pope Francis describes, emerge from an integral approach to ecology. 3 Integral ecology points not just to stewardship of the earth; rather, as elaborated by Pope Francis, such an approach recognizes the binding relationship between God, the person, humanity at large, and the natural

because the Nankani view the spiritual as an integral part of their daily life. Unlike ecology, however, I have suddenly realized that it is very difficult for me to clearly delimit what I mean by spirituality. Perhaps this has to do with my encounter with Jacob Olupona’s question on why the term has

Connecting Wonder, the Moral Imagination and Socio-Ecological Flourishing

we arrive at a substantive peace of Earth that fosters both social and ecological flourishing? Currently, there are many peace frameworks that aim to foster either social justice or ecological health, but few that aim to foster as an integral socio-ecological flourishing. In a world so plagued by the

A need for integrating conservation biology and restoration ecology to deal with catastrophic environmental changes caused by human activities was

Nankani women are not only thought to believe they are spiritual beings; they are also made to understand that they are structurally interwoven with their ecosystem. From the mythical and proverbial saying, ‘he who wilfully kills a woman has invoked upon himself a curse that he can never fully rectify,’ to the religio-cultural symbolic representations of the woman as a calabash (vegetation) and/or and earthen pot (sand/clay), Nankani women are socialized to accept and recognise their integral place and role in their society’s life and wellbeing. Thus strategically entangled with the family, clan and the community’s beliefs and practices; the women believe they are purposefully situated to play their multi-tasking roles just as a pregnant woman nurtures and sustains the life within her. This paper provides some insights into Nankani women’s spirituality and ecology.

Most instances of grammaticalization have been shown to arise in restrictive contexts (cf. Bybee et al. 1994). The persistence (Hopper 1991) of linguistic contexts raises theoretical and methodological issues for historical corpus research. What is the appropriate unit of linguistic context? How long do contexts remain relevant in the history of specific constructions? In quantitative work should “bridging contexts” (Heine 2002) and “critical contexts” (Diewald 2002) that enable grammaticalization be counted after grammaticalization has set in? I argue that ambiguous contexts (‘co-texts’ broadly defined to include prior and following discourse), if attested, should be counted (contra Eckardt 2006), because they persist as part of the ecology of a newly grammaticalizing construction and should therefore be considered an integral component of diachronic corpus research. Data discussed involve the development of motion-with-a-purpose BE going to V into an auxiliary of the future as evidenced by the Early Modern English part of Helsinki Corpus, and by the first fifty years of Proceedings of the Old Bailey.
