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…

Vaughan, Jill; Singer, Ruth; Garde, Murray – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2023
Language naming systems are local ways of organising diversity, yet the language names used by linguists are sometimes incommensurable with the lived social reality of speakers. The process of assigning language names is not neutral, trivial or objective: it is a highly political process driven and shaped by understandings of group identity,…

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. However, the field of sociolinguistic variation is yet to embrace the full ramifications of intersectionality as an analytical framework. The current paper offers a new method for integrating intersectional approaches into…

Sepielak, Katarzyna; Wladyka, Dawid; Yaworsky, William – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2023
The proficiency in vernacular has long been a methodological ethos pervasive among field researchers and--despite new dynamics of fieldwork--still overshadows discussions related to collaboration with translators and interpreters, which are either marginalized or hidden within the category of a 'research assistant'. The purpose of this study is to…

Norlund Shaswar, Annika – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2022
International mobility has caused a need for language education where adults can learn the language(s) used in their new country. 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…

Taibi, Hadjer; Badwan, Khawla – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2022
This study discusses the impact of spatial, temporal and virtual mobility on how mobile individuals talk about language in their world, and how they use language offline and online to communicate over time and across space. We introduce the notion of "chronotopic translanguaging" to highlight the significance of merging time and place in…

Riskedahl, Diane – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2022
A wide range of Arabic language variation in form, code choice and orthographic script was wielded by Lebanese political protestors in their graffiti and political placards in Beirut in 2015. That summer, civil protests spilled out into the streets to critique the government inaction over waste management and overall corruption. I will focus on…

Piller, Ingrid; Zhang, Jie; Li, Jia – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2022
The decolonization of knowledge is increasingly high on the agenda of applied and sociolinguistics. This article contributes to this agenda by examining how peripheral multilingual scholars confront their linguistic and epistemic exclusion from global knowledge production. Based on the product of such a challenge -- a Chinese-centric special issue…

Horesh, Uri – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2021
The 1948 war created a new situation in Palestine. Palestinians became dispersed across political borders that had not existed before, and these borders continued to change in different ways into the 21st century. In many respects, these political borders have had notable linguistic effects, introducing bilingualism and multilingualism for some…

Ferguson, Jenanne – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2021
This article investigates contemporary uses of the Sakha language algys (blessing poems) and reveals the "old" and "new" types of language materiality present in this genre of ritual poetry. Focusing primarily on one example of algys shared online in 2018, I discuss how performing algys has always involved close interconnection…
