Bridgers, Franca Ferrari; Kacinik, Natalie – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2017
The majority of words in most languages consist of derived poly-morphemic words but a cross-linguistic review of the literature (Amenta and Crepaldi in Front Psychol 3:232-243, 2012) shows a contradictory picture with respect to how such words are represented and processed. The current study examined the effects of linearity and structural…

Alkhateeb, Muna Mohammed Abbas – Journal of Education and Practice, 2016
English has a very dynamic status today. One can literally witness its circle widening day by day, engulfing in it a wide spectrum of varieties.

Flowerdew, Lynne – Studies in Higher Education, 2020
I first briefly review two paradigms for scholarly writing, namely the English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and Academic Literacies (Ac Lits) approaches.

Alaei, Mahya; Ahangari, Saeideh – English Language Teaching, 2016

This study intends to determine how ideology or opinion is expressed in Joseph…

The issue of intercultural learning has been tackled, amongst others, in the fields of education, language education and applied linguistics.
