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…

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…

Arumí, Marta; Rubio-Carbonero, Gema – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2023
In many immigrant families, children often learn the language and culture of the host society quicker than adult immigrants. Consequently, children serve as language brokers, translating and interpreting face-to-face communication. The aim of this paper is to present a study based on 19 qualitative in depth interviews with young adults reporting…

Birnie-Smith, Jessica – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2023
Variationist researchers are increasingly adopting intersectionality approaches to analyse identity-linked practice.

The current paper offers a new method for integrating intersectional approaches into…

Vitorio, Raymund – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2023
New citizens are typically characterized as people who occupy an estuarial position between the global and the local: to simultaneously become authentic to their global provenience and rooted in their new local societies, they are expected to cautiously partake in processes of differentiation as they construct their identities. This article…

This paper focuses on the integration of translanguaging practices in a public preschool situated in a small village in North-West of Italy. Mobility processes and local Italian families' school choices have led to the raise of the number of students with an immigrant background enrolled at the studied preschool up to 85%. After a brief overview…

In Sweden, the language programme SFI (Swedish for immigrants) provides basic second language education for adult immigrants. For those learners who are not yet functionally literate, basic literacy education is…

Bouchard, Marie-Eve – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2022
In São Tomé and Príncipe, the language shift toward Portuguese is resulting in the endangerment of the native creoles of the island. These languages have been considered of low value in Santomean society since the mid-twentieth century. But when Santomeans are members of a diaspora, their perceptions of these languages, especially Forro, change in…

This paper uses a transnational lens to discuss findings from a longitudinal study of the home literacy practices of linguistically diverse immigrant families. The paper draws on the experiences of three families to show how literacy events and practices index and mediate immigrants' identities as they settle into the host community. Observations,…

Rubino, Antonia – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2022
In this article I adopt a family language policy approach and a diachronic perspective to explore how the dialect-Italian dynamics unfolds differently within different cohorts of Italian migrants due to the hierarchical position of the two heritage languages. I highlight three main issues that emerge across time in the language policies in the…

Torsh, Hanna Irving – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2022
Maintaining heritage languages is frequently desired by migrants to continue cultural and social connections to family and identity. However, in imagined monolingual nations such as Australia, efforts to transmit minority languages are seen as a private matter and largely unsupported. Transmission of culture and language is also frequently seen as…
