Jimmy Van Rijt; Arina Banga; Martijn Goudbeek – Applied Linguistics, 2024
An important skill for L1 language teachers when teaching grammar is the ability to produce and quickly evaluate arguments that underpin a grammatical analysis. Previous research has revealed that the strongest arguments in favour of a particular grammatical analysis are based on linguistic manipulations (LM) rather than on rules of thumb (RoT).…

Mathew Gillings; Carmen Dayrell – Applied Linguistics, 2024
This article examines the discourses around climate change in the UK press from 2003 to 2019. Our main goal is to investigate how the media discourse developed during a period of significant world events, whilst also exploring the change in the UK public's perception of the problem. We combine the novel technique of Usage Fluctuation Analysis…

Tait Bergstrom – Applied Linguistics, 2024
Collaborative writing tasks are common in multilingual university-level writing-intensive classes, but how multilingual language learners (MLLs) are socialized into this group work as a discursive practice is still poorly understood. This case study of adult MLLs in multilingual writing classes at a large public university provides insight into…

Zhan Wang; Ming Ming Chiu – Applied Linguistics, 2024
Although many studies modelled writing quality by analysing basic skills (spelling, grammar, etc.), few focused on top-down compositional strategies at the discourse level. We propose that using both narrative and argument discourse modes in an argumentative essay (a multi-discourse mode [MDM] strategy) capitalizes on their complementary…

Dingfang Shu; Shanshan Yang; Masatoshi Sato – Applied Linguistics, 2024
The need for collaboration between researchers and practitioners to address the research-practice gap is a long-debated topic in applied linguistics. Little is known, however, about how researchers and practitioners can collaboratively develop teaching materials, as a potential venue to narrow the gap. This study explored how two groups of…

Marta Tecedor – Applied Linguistics, 2024
This study examines the impact of writing instruction on Spanish heritage language (SHL) learners' attitudes towards digital stories (DS) and self-efficacy beliefs with regard to academic writing, multiliteracies, and computer abilities. Two types of writing instruction--a traditional curriculum centered around genres and a multiliteracies…

Lindsay C. Nickels; Trisha L. Marshall; Ezra Edgerton; Patrick W. Brady; Philip A. Hagedorn; James J. Lee – Applied Linguistics, 2024
Diagnostic uncertainty is prevalent throughout medicine and significantly impacts patient care, especially when it goes unrecognized. However, we lack a reliable clinical means of identifying uncertainty. This study evaluates the narrative discourse within clinical notes in the Electronic Health Record as a means of identifying diagnostic…

Yoolim Kim; Vita V. Kogan; Cong Zhang – Applied Linguistics, 2024
Gamification of behavioral experiments has been applied successfully to research in a number of disciplines, including linguistics. We believe that these methods have been underutilized in applied linguistics, in particular second-language acquisition research. The incorporation of games and gaming elements (gamification) in behavioral experiments…

Canagarajah, Suresh – Applied Linguistics, 2023
This article opens a conversation between disability studies and linguistics from the author's positionality from the Global South. It argues that capacity building for both the abled and disabled in the North is implicated in the disablement of people in the Global South. A decolonial orientation to disability studies values vulnerability,…

Erling, Elizabeth J.; Brummer, Michael; Foltz, Anouschka – Applied Linguistics, 2023
This study provides a counter-narrative to commonly found deficit discourses about LX English learners from migration backgrounds in Europe. A questionnaire was conducted with 108 middle school students and 100 high school students in Austria in a context which has been relatively unexplored: non-elite, linguistically diverse small-town schools.…

Egbert, Jesse; Burch, Brent – Applied Linguistics, 2023
The words in a language or language variety are often rank ordered in lists that are meant to reflect the relative importance of those words to language users and learners of a language. This rank ordering is done on the basis of the relative prevalence of words in a corpus. Lexical prevalence is often operationalized as measures of frequency,…

Hwang, Haerim; Kim, Hyunwoo – Applied Linguistics, 2023
One of the important components in second language (L2) development is to produce clause-level units of form-meaning pairings or argument structure constructions. Based on the usage-based constructionist approach that language development entails an ability to use more diverse, more complex, and less frequent constructions, this study tested…

Staples, Shelley; Gray, Bethany; Biber, Douglas; Egbert, Jesse – Applied Linguistics, 2023
Grammatical complexity has been established as a key indicator of language and writing development (Ortega 2003; Bulté and Housen, 2014; Crossley and McNamara 2014). The present study uses the Register-Functional approach to complexity (Biber et al. 2022) to compare the development of L1 English and L2 English writers across year of study and…

Dewaele, Jean-Marc; Saito, Kazuya; Halimi, Florentina – Applied Linguistics, 2023
The current study contributes to the recent debate on the question whether learner emotions can be intrinsically motivating or whether they are no more than diffuse action tendencies (Dörnyei 2020). Adopting a longitudinal approach, we combined repeated analysis of variances and mixed effects modelling to capture interactions between Foreign…

Alamer, Abdullah; Alrabai, Fakieh – Applied Linguistics, 2023
It is well known that successful second language (L2) learners are motivated individuals. Accordingly, L2 researchers have tested the predictive power of different motivational constructs on language learning outcomes. However, this perspective appears to neglect the assessment of achievement as a predictor of future motivation. To assess this…
