  • Pre-empting Understanding Problems in L1/L2 Conversations: Evidence of
           Effectiveness from Simulated Emergency Calls
    • Authors: Svennevig J; Gerwing J, Jensen B, et al.
      Pages: 205 - 227
      Abstract: This study presents a quantitative analysis of pre-emptive strategies used by first language speakers in talk addressed to second language speakers with moderate proficiency. The strategies identified in the conversations are reformulation, simplification, left-dislocation, and decomposition. The data come from simulated emergency calls in which an (L1) ‘operator’ instructed a (L2) ‘caller’ how to put a ‘patient’ (a manikin) in the recovery position. The conversations were coded for how many (and which) strategies the operators used and for whether or not the instruction was understood by the caller. The analysis showed that there is a relationship between the average number of strategies used and the chance of successful understanding; a greater number of strategies employed led to fewer understanding problems. The study shows that in this context of instruction, L1 speakers orient to potential problems of understanding for L2 addressees by using recognizable pre-emptive strategies, and that these strategies are effective in reducing the likelihood of understanding problems occurring.

  • Reproductions of Chinese Transnationalism: Ambivalent Identities in Study
           Abroad
    • Authors: Anderson T.
      Pages: 228 - 247
      Abstract: Intersections between transnationalism, the internationalization of higher education, and applied linguistics continue to draw attention, as the proliferation of academic mobility is increasingly influencing students, instructors, and universities globally. As one of the world’s major receiving countries of international postsecondary students, Canada, and its universities, has been similarly impacted. This article presents two informative and contrastive perspectives based on the experiences of two Chinese doctoral students at a large Canadian university. I focus particularly on the students’ national and transnational ideologies, identities, and future outlooks, and how these formative experiences and positionalities shaped their perspectives, goals, and motivations during their study abroad. This research demonstrates how the (transnational) identities of these two students were discursively and iteratively formed based on complex intersections of national and transnational discourses regarding the representations of overseas returnees and the students’ conceptions and co-constructions of the legitimate academic transnational and home. These discursive constructions and enactments in turn had an influential effect on their challenges, desires, and abilities to integrate into local academic discourses and communities.

  • Setting and Language Attitudes in a Creole Context
    • Authors: Salmon W; Menjívar J.
      Pages: 248 - 264
      Abstract: This article reports on a set of language attitude experiments undertaken in Belize in 2013–2014. The experiments tested attitudes toward Belizean Kriol in two different situational settings among 96 Belizean university students, exploring the extent to which experimental ‘setting’ had an effect on survey results. We administered verbal guise tests to 48 university students in classroom settings at the University of Belize campuses in Belize City and Punta Gorda. We then administered the same tests to 48 students in non-classroom settings in these same two cities. We found significant differences in both sets of results, with classroom participants registering stronger preferences for Belize City Kriol in status and solidarity traits. Our results add to a small but important body of literature in which setting is shown to influence language attitudes, and they provide support for an understanding of the quantitative survey as a meaning-making activity.

  • ‘The Elevation of Sensitivity over Truth’: Political Correctness and
           Related Phrases in the Time Magazine Corpus
    • Authors: Granath S; Ullén M.
      Pages: 265 - 287
      Abstract: This article is a quantitative and qualitative diachronic study of how the expression politically correct (PC) and related phrases are used in the American magazine Time from 1923 through 2006. The data show a dramatic increase in the frequency with which PC-phrases are used in the early 1990s. From this time onwards, the phrases are often used as a means of passing evaluative subjective opinions off as objectively reported facts, especially in reviews of cultural events, where they figure prominently. In contrast to earlier studies, our data show that PC-phrases are not inherently negative; this applies primarily to discourse on environment and business, where to be PC often implies being environmentally or socially conscious in a positive sense. Nevertheless, negative or ironic uses of the terms predominate. Most often they express criticism of unspoken cultural norms rather than being attempts to close down debate or criticizing the replacement of offensive terms by more neutral expressions.

  • ELF Awareness in English Language Teaching: Principles and Processes
    • Authors: Sifakis N.
      Pages: 288 - 306
      Abstract: The article proposes a framework for integrating English as a lingua franca (ELF) research in English language teaching (ELT), predominantly pedagogy, but also teacher education, materials development and evaluation, policy design and planning, assessment and testing. The main concept here is ELF awareness, which orientates a set of principles that refer to the knowledge, attitudes, and skillset of ELT stakeholders and ELT products with regard to issues and concerns raised in the ELF (and, by extension, the English as an international language and the World Englishes) research literature, and the extent to which they have relevance for local ELT contexts. The article makes the case that ELF awareness does not characterize a unique instructional approach to teaching and learning, but integrates the learner- and learning-centred ‘ESP approach’ put forward by English for specific purposes scholars in the 1980s and widely accepted subsequently in ELT. Furthermore, ELF awareness is viewed as a continuum that depicts the gradual transformation of stakeholders’ attitudes, to the extent that local contexts and stakeholders’ needs and wants allow.

  • ‘What is Stoyr-Steruh Type'’: Knowledge Asymmetry,
           Intersubjectivity, and Learning Opportunities in Conversation-for-Learning
           
    • Authors: Kim Y.
      Pages: 307 - 328
      Abstract: Conversation-for-learning (Kasper and Kim 2015) is a pedagogical arrangement set up with a view to maximizing the potential benefit of interaction for language learning. As participants for conversation-for-learning are recruited for their relative expertise in the target languages, the talk is often characterized by asymmetries in knowledge and language expertise. Based on sequential analysis of how the knowledge asymmetries are brought to the fore of interaction and how they are subsequently dealt with, the current study illustrates how learning opportunities are generated in conversation-for-learning, that is, by collaborative achievement of definition sequences (Markee 1994). Interaction provides an observable space where interactional practices deployed by the participants to achieve and maintain intersubjectivity can be observed and appropriated. The study contributes to our understanding of language learning as a social practice as it shows that the methods and devices that underlie and enable human sociality constitute the cornerstones of what makes language learning happen in interaction.

  • Reading Collocations in an L2: Do Collocation Processing Benefits Extend
           to Non-Adjacent Collocations'
    • Authors: Vilkaitė L; Schmitt N.
      Pages: 329 - 354
      Abstract: Various studies have consistently shown that collocations are processed faster than matched control phrases, both in L1 and in L2. Most of these studies focused on adjacent collocations (e.g. provide information). However, research in corpus linguistics normally uses a span to identify collocations (e.g. plus or minus four words), and these non-adjacent collocations (e.g. provide some of the information) occur very frequently in language. Nevertheless, how they are processed is less established. A recent study on reading non-adjacent collocations seems to suggest similar processing advantages as for adjacent collocations (Vilkaitė 2016), but this study was limited to the performance of native speakers (NSs). The present study addresses the question of whether advanced non-native speakers (NNSs) also show processing advantages for non-adjacent collocations as NSs do. Forty advanced NNSs of English read collocations in either adjacent or non-adjacent conditions, and their eye movements were recorded. Mixed-effects analysis of their eye movements was carried out. The results suggest that NNSs read adjacent collocations faster than non-formulaic controls, but this facilitation almost disappears for non-adjacent collocations.

  • L2 Experience Mediates the Relation between Mainstream Acculturation
           Orientation and Self-Assessed L2 Competence among Migrants
    • Authors: Doucerain M.
      Pages: 355 - 378
      Abstract: Understanding the mechanisms underlying the development of migrants' second language (L2) competence in naturalistic settings is a pressing concern for receiving societies. Several studies have established a positive relation between people's self-positioning with respect to the L2 ethnolinguistic group and their L2 competence, but the mechanisms underlying this relation are relatively unexplored. Using path analysis, this study investigates the hypothesis that migrants' experience with the L2 mediates the positive association between mainstream cultural orientation and self-assessed L2 competence among 123 multicultural recent immigrant students to Montreal, Quebec. As such, this study applies notions from L2 motivation and sociocultural L2 learning to an acculturation context. This study also unpacks L2 experience by examining L2 use and L2 social contact (namely, friendships in the mainstream group) separately. In addition, this study takes into account the important role of the social context by selecting a setting that maximizes the centrality of individual differences in cultural orientations. The hypotheses were fully supported: model fit for the hypothesized model was excellent and better than for alternative models.

  • Metaphors of Climate Science in Three Genres: Research Articles,
           Educational Texts, and Secondary School Student Talk
    • Authors: Deignan A; Semino E, Paul S.
      Pages: 379 - 403
      Abstract: Experts are generally in agreement that anthropogenic climate change is happening and will increase in severity, but this view is not clearly reflected in more non-specialist texts. Research has shown that school students have a limited and sometimes faulty understanding of climate change. Metaphors are used by scientists in developing thought and communicating with non-scientists; they are also used by educators. This research investigates students’ understandings of climate change by comparing metaphor use in three corpora, of research articles, student educational materials, and of transcribed interviews with school students aged 11–16 from the north of England. We find that some metaphors are shared by the three corpora; where this happens, the researchers’ use tends to be highly conventionalized and technical, while educational materials extend and explore metaphors, and the students’ use is still more creative, sometimes resulting in inaccurate descriptions of the science. Students also develop some of their own distinctive metaphors based on their immediate concrete experience, and possibly on visual educational materials; these metaphors convey highly simplified and often inaccurate understandings of climate science.
