    Nominative absolute participial construction and Nominative non-absolute participial

    Where are Nominative absolute participial construction and Nominative non-absolute participial constructions and Gerund? Underline, please.
    2) Although the modelling of culture in terms of flow is still a poorly developed discipline, social scientists have become more interested in viewing the world in such ways rather than relying on static entities such as “cultures”,“nations” and “national economies”. Appadurai (1990) identifies five global flows in terms of metaphorical landscapes. These he terms ethnoscapes (people’s movement), technoscapes (technology transfer, technology convergence), financescapes(flows of capital and currency), mediascapes (flows of audio-visual product but also the images and narratives they convey) and ideoscapes (flowsof ideas and ideologies). Here we examine some of the more measurable kinds of flow, to see what broad shifts there might be as globalization develops.
    4) The ultimate drivers of language are the people who use it. People move extensively: for business or education, as tourists and pilgrims, as migrant workers and immigrants, as refugees and exiles, taking with them languages and cultural values. Desire for physical mobility has created further massive industries in transport and services. The increase in people’s flow relates to the significant changes – rise of world trade, shifts to services requiring face-to-face contact, wider dispersal of families, the emergence of new cultural diasporas, the operations of transnational companies and the growing international trade in higher education.5) Tourism is one well-documented form of people’s flow which has had a significant impact on the use of English. International travel has a globalizing effect. People are brought together, businesses and institutions form relationships of interdependency and closer communication. And,more directly than many other kinds of flow, international travel brings people from different language backgrounds together, promoting the need to learn a language in common. But there is also a growing provision for a customer’s own language, as service industries find they must compete on levels of service.

    I'm not a teacher, but your post is a mess. At least you should try to separate the different parts to make it clearer.

    That sounds a lot like homework to me. We don't help with homework assignments. Do the work yourself, submit it to your teacher for marking and then you can come back to us later if you did not understand any of your teacher's corrections or comments.
    In future, please make your posts more readable. You have clearly copied and pasted this and you have then left the messy formatting in place.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It's not a homework. I just can't manage to understand and do it and ask for help.
