Warren, Amber N.; Paulus, Trena M. – Classroom Discourse, 2020

Girgin, Ufuk; Brandt, Adam – Classroom Discourse, 2020
Studies on Second Language (L2) classroom interaction have placed a great deal of emphasis on the value of teacher third-turn feedback practices. However, the roles that seemingly minor aspects of interaction like minimal response tokens (e.g. 'Mm', 'Mm hm', 'Uh huh', 'Okay', 'Yeah') play as a feature of these practices have not been investigated…

The majority of learners in South African schools are African language speakers, yet the dominance of English in the political economy has meant that schools choose to switch to English medium instruction by Grade 4, before learners have the necessary English proficiency to access the curriculum, with negative effects on learning. This paper…

This article examines multilingual interactions in an upper secondary Language Introduction Programme (LIP) classroom in Sweden.

In a bilingual school, the linguistic and semiotic resources of students who speak one, two or several languages can be used in classroom discourse in order to embrace and strengthen the multiplicity of voices and languages in teaching and learning. In this article, four English language lessons -- where the medium of instruction mainly oscillates…

Wu, Yanming; Lin, Angel M. Y. – Classroom Discourse, 2019
While translanguaging research has been gaining currency worldwide, calls have been made for deepening its theorisation and providing more systematic pedagogical guidance. To contribute to this discussion, this study is informed by a fluid, distributed, dynamic process view of human meaning-making. Through a fine-grained multimodal analysis of…

García, Ofelia – Classroom Discourse, 2019

Makalela, Leketi – Classroom Discourse, 2019
Increasing international mobility has raised awareness on the fluidity and porous nature of boundaries not only between nation states, but also between named languages.

Seedhouse, Paul – Classroom Discourse, 2019
Seedhouse (2004) suggested that L2 classroom interaction can be understood in terms of sub-varieties or L2 classroom contexts. These are the 'interfaces' between pedagogy and interaction in which a particular pedagogical focus combines with a particular organisation of the interaction. However, Conversation Analysis does not see such organisations…
