Brdar, Mario – Applied Linguistics, 2021
Two issues pertaining to the use of metonymy that plays a central role in Slabakova et al. (2016) are mentioned in the very title of their study--novel metonymy and regular metonymy. In this article I draw attention to some problems with the identification of these as well as with the assumption that these are opposites of each other.

Gibbs, Alexis – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2021
This paper offers some thoughts in response to René Arcilla's stimulating new book on road movie philosophy. I consider the book's case for separating the "educare" and "educere" functions of education from one another by examining the teacherly role of the child in Wim Wenders' films. I then reflect on the nature of train…

Sabucedo, Pablo – British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, 2021
This article explores the similarities between humanistic (and existential) psychotherapy, represented here by the ideas of Viktor Frankl, Erich Fromm and Irvin Yalom, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Despite the ongoing dialogue between both therapies during the last decade, regarding both their convergences and divergences, there is…

Grigorenko, Elena L. – Scientific Studies of Reading, 2022
This mini-review attempts to provide a capsule overview of the role of genetic factors in reading and its development across languages and writing systems. The review is conceived and executed with a scoping review approach, synthesizing the methods employed in the existing research rather than producing a summary of evidence to answer a discrete…

Busch, Brigitta; McNamara, Tim – Applied Linguistics, 2020
This paper introduces the conceptual framing of studies of trauma. It considers how, on the one hand, applied linguistics may contribute to this study, responding to the suggestion that trauma 'can be best understood through plural, multi-disciplinary perspectives' (Luckhurst 2008: 214), and, on the other hand, the extent to which linguistic…

During the last 20 years, the teaching of writing has grown worldwide as a dynamic field of international academic practice and research, as attested to by the emergence of disciplinary societies, conferences, and publications. This paper builds on common nodes that have shaped the original contributions to Latin America's university-level…

Speed, Laura J.; Chen, Jidong; Huettig, Falk; Majid, Asifa – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2021
Do we structure object-related conceptual information according to real-world sensorimotor experience, or can it also be shaped by linguistic information? This study investigates whether a feature of language coded in grammar--numeral classifiers--affects the conceptual representation of objects. We compared speakers of Mandarin (a classifier…

Brockmeier, Jens – Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, 2020
Writing and narrative are commonly taken to be two separate fields of research and scholarly reflection. In this paper, I offer some thoughts on how they are related, using David Olson's work on literacy and the development of metalinguistic awareness as a frame of reasoning. As Olson has shown, language is not only a form and practice of…

Kouppanou, Anna – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2021
This paper is concerned with Catherine Malabou's reading of Heidegger's forgotten triad of change; indeed, in connection to her own notion of the 'plasticity of meaning'. The paper focuses on the emergence of meaning, on its figuration, and on the moment during which a new image of meaning comes to be seen. In light of this pursuit, the paper will…

Dennis, Jeremy – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2020
As technological advancements and online education transform higher education, the achievement gap among students is widening rather than closing. Critics suggest that we need to reassess the promises of online education and the connectivism or network learning that is sometimes employed as its pedagogical underpinning. As scholars and…

Crowe, Kathryn; Guiberson, Mark – Journal of Deaf Studies and Deaf Education, 2021
Parents frequently report that advice from professionals is important in making decisions about how their child with hearing loss will communicate.

Roth, Wolff-Michael – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2018
Scholars interested in the function of language in mathematical learning often draw on Vygotsky, whose early work on word meaning has shaped many research studies. However, near the end of a rather short life, Vygotsky heavily critiqued his own previous work and began to sketch a radical theory revision, which overturns much of what he had done…

van 't Wout, Félice; Jarrold, Christopher – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2022
Recent findings have shown that language plays an important role in the acquisition of novel cognitive tasks (van 't Wout & Jarrold, 2020). The current study sought to elucidate the factors that influence the contribution of language to novel task learning, focusing specifically on the role of task complexity (defined by the number of…

Copland, Fiona; McPake, Joanna – Current Issues in Language Planning, 2022
In 2003, Mary Louise Pratt published a hugely influential paper in "Profession" where she took to task misconceptions about multilingualism and language learning apparent in the USA in the wake of 9/11 and consequent counter-terrorism measures. She argued that a new public idea about language was necessary in order to ensure unity and…

Korsgaard, Morten Timmermann – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
The discussion of the power of the teacher's voice is raging again in light of the standardisation of education and the emergence of testing as the new regime of truth in educational processes. In confrontation with this paradigm, Jasinki and Lewis have raised pertinent questions regarding the role of language and the voice of the teacher. By…
