Pietikäinen, Kaisa S. – Applied Linguistics, 2018
Although misunderstandings as such have been extensively studied, the ways in which problems of understanding are avoided--especially in cross-cultural communication--have so far received limited attention. This article examines over 24 h of private conversation data from seven established, intercultural couples who use lingua franca English as…

The study presented in this article explores to what extent and in what ways the communication between clinicians and patients on Ask-the-Expert healthcare websites is patient-centred.

McCarthy, Tanya M. – Applied Linguistics, 2018
The analysis of advising sessions has recognized common standards of the profession in areas such as advising skills employed and non-verbal communicative practices. There are however numerous variations in advisor behavior due to differences in cognitive processes. This study used a stimulated recall approach to identify the content of inner…

Nguyen, Hanh Thi – Applied Linguistics, 2018
This article investigates how learned interactional practices from an instructional setting may be utilized in the workplace setting. I examine how the same novice in a pharmacy employed the practices of sequential organization in role-played patient consultations in the classroom and in subsequent actual patient consultations in a clerkship. I…

Wei, Li – Applied Linguistics, 2018
This article seeks to develop Translanguaging as a theory of language and discuss the theoretical motivations behind and the added values of the concept. I contextualize Translanguaging in the linguistic realities of the 21st century, especially the fluid and dynamic practices that transcend the boundaries between named languages, language…

Canagarajah, Suresh – Applied Linguistics, 2018
The expanding orientations to translingualism are motivated by a gradual shift from the structuralist paradigm that has been treated as foundational in modern linguistics. Structuralism encouraged scholars to consider language, like other social constructs, as organized as a self-defining and closed structure, set apart from spatiotemporal…

Mori, Junko; Sanuth, Kazeem Ké?hìndé – Applied Linguistics, 2018
Translingualism advocates for the appreciation of multilingual speakers' fluid, flexible, and creative deployment of semiotic resources without regard to the ideological constructs of named languages. While this scholarship has been developed primarily in the contexts of world Englishes, English as a lingua franca, and bilingual education in…

Hawkins, Margaret R. – Applied Linguistics, 2018
The "trans-" turn in language studies illuminates human communication as the coordination and interpretation of a vast array of semiotic resources that are entangled with language in fluid and unpredictable ways. It also highlights the current era of globalization in which communication occurs with ever-increasing rapidity among…

Kramsch, Claire – Applied Linguistics, 2018
The "trans-" perspectives offered in this special issue are heady stuff. Post-structuralism (philosophy) meets the digital age (electronics), meets globalization (economics), and meets translingual practice (linguistics) to create a perfectly utopian or placeless space for future exploration. I want to first add my voice to the…

Mancilla, Rae L.; Polat, Nihat; Akcay, Ahmet O. – Applied Linguistics, 2017
This manuscript reports on a corpus-based comparison of native and nonnative graduate students' language production in an asynchronous learning environment. Using 486 discussion board postings from a five-year period (2009-2013), we analyzed the extent to which native and nonnative university students' writing differed in 10 measures of syntactic…

Milicevic, Maja; Kraš, Tihana – Applied Linguistics, 2017
This article reports on the findings of an empirical study that relates translation studies and research on language acquisition/attrition by looking at the interpretation of overt pronominal subjects, previously found to be problematic in both domains. The focus is on the resolution of intra-sentential anaphora and cataphora in Italian by two…

Carter, Ronald; McCarthy, Michael – Applied Linguistics, 2017
This article synthesises progress made in the description of spoken (especially conversational) grammar over the 20 years since the authors published a paper in this journal arguing for a re-thinking of grammatical description and pedagogy based on spoken corpus evidence. We begin with a glance back at the 16th century and the teaching of Latin…

Hallin, Anna Eva; Van Lancker Sidtis, Diana – Applied Linguistics, 2017
Formulaic expressions (such as idioms, proverbs, and conversational speech formulas) are currently a topic of interest. Examination of prosody in formulaic utterances, a less explored property of formulaic expressions, has yielded controversial views. The present study investigates prosodic characteristics of proverbs, as one type of formulaic…

Yamashita, Junko; Shiotsu, Toshihiko – Applied Linguistics, 2017
Among predictors of second language (L2) reading, both first language (L1) reading and L2 listening embody the complexities of comprehension ability in their construct. Their contributions to L2 reading have rarely been examined together, probably because of the different theoretical frameworks in which they are postulated. Therefore, the field…
