Clara Molina – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2024
Language ideologies are a powerful way of perpetuating inequalities, as peripheralized speakers who have internalized the lack of legitimacy attributed to them often end up reproducing censure rather than resisting it. Foregrounding the affective dimension, this paper explores the role of shame as a fulcrum articulating the individual with the…

Tanya Voinova – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2024
The war in Ukraine, which began on February 24, 2022, has led to a significant civilian involvement in Israel, particularly among immigrants from the former Soviet Union, who began to provide humanitarian assistance, including interpreting. Highlighting the interrelation between translation and migration, I argue that the war strongly affects…

This paper examines the relationship between language, (in)visibility, and (im)mobility in racialized spaces, focusing on Finnish, Somali, and Arabic speakers in Sweden. Using a theoretical framework based on hegemonic whiteness and intersectionality, the study explores how multilingual practices and subjectivities intersect with race, religion,…

Michael Mora-Rodriguez – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2024
In today's global world, many people can move across borders as travelling has become much easier in many ways. However, the securitization of borders has not been relaxed, implying that multilingual police-civilian interactions are becoming more 'commonplace'. Within the framework of conversation analysis, this article presents a novel study on…

Qianqian Zhang-Wu – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2024
In this study I indicate that lengthened family interaction time during pandemic lockdowns can afford children significantly more exposure and opportunities to enhance their heritage language, but that this does not diminish the constant dilemma between striving to balance English acquisition and heritage language maintenance. Using…

This provided a unique scenario to investigate multilingual family language interaction, and specifically, challenges and opportunities for home language (HL) use. This study is rooted in Family Language Policy (FLP) research,…

Federica Bulgarelli; Christine E. Potter – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2024
Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, extensive lockdowns interrupted daily routines, including childcare. We asked whether these interruptions, and the inevitable changes in the people with whom children spent their waking hours, caused changes in the languages that children heard. We retrospectively queried parents of young children (0-4 years) in the…

At a press conference in Japan, an L2-Japanese reporter questioned an L1-Japanese politician. Although the press conference was conducted in Japanese, the politician code-switched to English during their exchange.

Jacobs, Marie; Maryns, Katrijn – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2023
Discursive input functions as the core decisive element in answering the legal dilemma of whether someone is eligible for international protection. This pleads in favour of strengthening the narrative-discursive component in migration studies by offering a micro-sociolinguistic analysis of interactional data from diverse legal encounters with…

Yusra, Kamaludin; Lestari, Yuni Budi; Juwaeriah, Yulia – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2023
English has been for centuries seen as the native language of speakers in the English-speaking inner circle countries, as the second language of speakers in the former British-colony outer circle countries and as an international business lingua franca among speakers in the techno-economically powerful extended circle countries. Little is known…

Wadensjö, Cecilia; Rehnberg, Hanna Sofia; Nikolaidou, Zoe – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2023
The aim of this study is to demonstrate how the presence of an emerging written record may affect the content of an asylum narrative, based on which a decision concerning the asylum claimant's right to receive protection eventually is taken. The lion's share of studies on interpreter-mediated asylum interviews to date focus on risks involved with…
