Park-Johnson, Sunny K. – International Multilingual Research Journal, 2019
Korean employs case ellipsis (CE), in which nouns are permitted to appear without case markers in certain contexts, particularly in informal settings.

Efforts to understand disparities in educational outcomes between students designated as English Learners (ELs) and their monolingual English-speaking peers have focused on factors that limit ELs' access to college, including quality of high school preparation. Central to quality high school preparation are schools' curricular structures--the…

Rodriguez-Mojica, Claudia – International Multilingual Research Journal, 2018
Prominent discourses about emergent bilinguals' academic abilities tend to focus on performance as measured by test scores and perpetuate the message that emergent bilinguals trail far behind their peers. When we remove the constraints of formal testing situations, what can emergent bilinguals do in English as they engage in naturally occurring…

The proposal described here focuses on the adoption of a programmatic…

Christiansen, M. Sidury; Trejo Guzmán, Nelly Paulina; Mora-Pablo, Irasema – International Multilingual Research Journal, 2018
Return migration from the United States to Mexico has been increasing in the last decade. Research reports that many returnees, who are English dominant, drop out of school to look for work in call centers and transnational companies (Anderson, 2015). Others pursue higher education in English-based programs such as those for becoming English…

Karimzad, Farzad; Sibgatullina, Gulnaz – International Multilingual Research Journal, 2018
Adopting an online ethnographic approach, we examine the linguistic/semiotic practices and ideologies of "purism" among Tatar and Iranian Azerbaijani Facebook users. We argue that purification practices can be understood as identity work, the outcome of which is often not an etymologically "purer" language but a (perceived)…
