Templeton, Michael – International Journal of English Studies, 2019
Taking Carroll's "Jabberwocky" as emblematic of a text historically enjoyed by both children and adults, this article seeks to place the text in what Kristeva defines as the borderline between language and subjectivity to theorize a realm in which ambivalent texts emerge as such. The fact that children's literature remains largely…

García Navarro, Carmen – International Journal of English Studies, 2019
This paper explores the narrative process identified in the Whitehorn Letters, written by Doris Lessing from 1944 to 1949, as historical documents that form a single, coherent whole. Their significance is assessed by means of an epistemological reflection that sheds light on the path by which the young Lessing established her identity as an author…

Borucinsky, Mirjana; Kecalj, Jana – International Journal of English Studies, 2019
Complex nominal groups are common in technical English (i.e., English for Specific Purposes, ESP) since they allow lexical items to be tightly packed into a clause which consequently leads to increased lexical density and syntactic ambiguity. In this paper, we analyse (complex) nominal groups in technical English. We propose that, in addition to…

Salazar, Patricia; Orts, Sara – International Journal of English Studies, 2018
Traditionally, the speech act of requesting has been regarded as a face-threatening act (Brown & Levinson, 1987) due to the impositive nature on the addressee's negative face. Yet, in specific service encounters, requests can no longer be seen as threatening (Antonopoulou, 2001). This is the case of tourist information offices, where…

Garrido, María Luisa Pascual – International Journal of English Studies, 2018
Although critical attention has focused on Ariel, Sylvia Plath's earlier poems are also worth examining since they reveal significant details concerning the writer's evolution towards that final achievement. After getting married in June 1956, Plath and Hughes travelled to Spain and settled in Benidorm for their honeymoon. It is the poems derived…
