Baggio, Giosuè – Cognitive Science, 2021
Compositionality has been a central concept in linguistics and philosophy for decades, and it is increasingly prominent in many other areas of cognitive science. Its status, however, remains contentious. Here, I reassess the nature and scope of the principle of compositionality (Partee, 1995) from the perspective of psycholinguistics and cognitive…

Babayigit, Selma; Roulstone, Sue; Wren, Yvonne – British Journal of Educational Psychology, 2021

Raudszus, Henriette; Segers, Eliane; Verhoeven, Ludo – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
In an experimental design, we investigated how fifth-grade readers use morphological and contextual information to infer the meaning of unknown words, and to what extent this is related to their cognitive and linguistic skills. A group of 166 fifth-grade Dutch children (59 L1, 107 L2) performed a lexical inferencing task in which the availability…

van Rijt, Jimmy H. M.; Wijnands, Astrid; Coppen, Peter-Arno J. M. – Language and Education, 2020
In L1 grammar teaching, teachers often struggle with the students' conceptual understanding of the subject matter. Frequently, students do not acquire an in-depth understanding of grammar, and they seem generally incapable of reasoning about grammatical problems. Some scholars have argued that an in-depth understanding of grammar requires making…

Kharchenko, Tetiana; Semashko, T?t?ana; Dolynskiy, Ievgen; Bespala, Liliia; Ivanova, Tetiana – Journal of Curriculum and Teaching, 2021
The "purpose" of the study is to identify how the speech production component of the linguistic competence, which seems to be a deficiency of using the Moodle LMS in the language training, can be enhanced through the use of the voice-administered language tests. Ten Moodle-based voice-administered language tests were designed, piloted,…

Dagarin-Fojkar, Mateja; Grahut, Mirjam; Skubic, Darija – European Journal of Educational Research, 2022
Foreign language teaching in the Slovenian educational context begins in the first grade (age 6). Many studies report a lack of qualified teachers at this stage of learning around the world and numerous authors emphasise the misconception that basic linguistic and didactic knowledge of teachers is sufficient for teaching children. All three…

Luo, Zhengda; Wu, Siyu; Fang, Xuanyu; Brunsting, Nelson C. – Journal of International Students, 2019
To increase knowledge of international students' psychological well-being at U.S. universities, we examined the degree to which demographic factors, perceived language competence, and domestic student social support were associated with Ryff's (1989a, 1989b) six aspects of psychological well-being. Participants (n = 216) were undergraduate and…

Kostina, Ekaterina; Khoroshilova, Svetlana; Pushkareva, Elena – NORDSCI, 2020
The main idea of modern education is to build competences as a produce of university educational process. One of the most important competences of intending teachers to be built is mobility competence, which is a component of professional pedagogical competence. We believe, to train a mobile teacher is possible within a purposefully created…

Waring, Hansun Zhang – Classroom Discourse, 2018
This contribution outlines the problems and possibilities of three issues with regard to the teaching of L2 interactional competence (IC): (1) specifying IC, (2) standardising IC, and (3) translating conversation analytic (CA) insights into classroom practices. In particular, I argue for a shift of discussion from the conceptually treacherous…

de Brusa, Maria Fernanda Poveda; Harutyunyan, Liliya – English Language Teaching, 2019
Higher education focuses on promoting the training of autonomous, critical professionals who adapt to the ever-more demanding labor market. To achieve these objectives, it is necessary to rethink teaching practices in order to allow the student to be the main actor and modeler for their learning process. Previous studies based on Vygotsky's…

Hall, Jonathan; Valdiviezo, Sonia – Journal of Social Work Education, 2020
Social work is language work, and yet the profession has operated without a fully critical theory of language difference. Rather, a model of language as merely a neutral conduit of communication has prevailed, with the result that language issues have been addressed mostly as problems of translation. But a more rigorous approach to language as an…
