Paralinguistic factors like punctuation can influence the audience's attention and…

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,…
