Lyster, Roy – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2019
Translanguaging practices come into play in social interactions between bilinguals when they are making use of all their shared linguistic resources and blending their languages in natural ways.

Beaulieu, Suzie – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2018
One of the most complex aspects of verbal interaction to master in a second language is the use of pronouns of address.

This article examines the salience and content of representations of language education in a corpus of English- and French-Canadian newspapers.

Samuel, Carolyn – Canadian Modern Language Review, 2017
Given the linguistically diverse instructor and student populations at Canadian universities, mutually comprehensible oral language may not be a given. Indeed, both instructors who are non-native speakers of the language of instruction (NNSLIs) and students have acknowledged oral communication challenges. Little is known, though, about how the…

Four out of five immigrants to Canada speak a language other than English or French as a first language. Immigration is increasingly transforming francophone minority communities.

We investigated the evocation of mental imagery and affect in English/French bilinguals to determine whether the linguistic demands of reading in a second language (L2) limit readers' ability to form non-verbal text representations of literary stories. The participants were 26 Grade 11 French immersion students enrolled in a Canadian high school.…
