  • The discursive positioning of the Falkland Islands (las Islas Malvinas): A
           corpus-based collocational analysis of British and Argentinian websites

    • Authors: Ray Chung Hang Leung
      Abstract: Considering "discursive positioning" to be a form of "placement," this study examines how the Falkland Islands or las Islas Malvinas, a place which has long been politically controversial, are discursively positioned on British and Argentinian websites. The data came from two reference corpora: namely the Corpus of Global Web-Based English (GloWbE) and the Corpus del Español: Web/Dialects. The 388-million-word British section of the former and the 183-million-word Argentinian section of the latter were selected for analysis. Attention was paid to the 20 most frequent collocates of "Falkland Islands"/"Islas Malvinas." Semantic prosody, collocation networks and word clusters were also investigated. It was found that the Falkland Islands are positioned differently in the two corpora. While the collocates of "Falkland Islands" in the British corpus (e.g., "government" and "population") position the Islands as a territory with "self-determination," the collocates of "Islas Malvinas" in the Argentinian corpus (e.g., "nuestras" [our (feminine plural)], "territorio" [territory] and "recuperación" [recovery], together with the 5-gram "las Islas Malvinas son argentinas" [the Falkland Islands are Argentinian]) subsume the Islands under the ownership of Argentina. Not only are the Falkland Islands "discursively positioned," Britain and Argentina are also subject to positioning. For instance, in the British corpus, Argentina is construed as an invader (as suggested by the collocates "invasion" and "1982") whereas in the Argentinian corpus, Britain is given this demonized role (via the collocates "militar" [military] and "británica" [British (feminine singular)]). Such findings add strength to van Dijk's (2011) discussion of "positive self-presentation and negative other-presentation." As an example of corpus-assisted discourse studies (CADS), the current research also offers solid evidence on the social phenomenon of "classification" proposed by Bourdieu (1990)—i.e., "a vision of the world is a division of the world."

  • The foregrounding of place in Trainspotting: A discourse-stylistic
           analysis

    • Authors: Cassandra Herrmann, Marie Møller Jensen, Tine Myrup Thiesson
      Abstract: In this paper, we investigate how place is foregrounded through language in Irvine Welsh's 1993 novel Trainspotting. We establish that many of the linguistic features which occur in the novel are associated with and represent Scots, a stigmatised language variety of Scotland. Drawing on Silverstein (2003), Johnstone (2009, 2010, 2013), and Eckert's (2008) work on indexicality, we argue that these linguistic features in Trainspotting function as indexical markers connecting the characters and the novel to place, more specifically to Scotland. In the analysis, we explore three channels through which the foregrounding of place is evident. First, the foregrounding of place happens through the sheer volume of nonstandard English associated with Scots throughout the novel in that the extensive appearance of nonstandard English deviates from most novels, and in that the nonstandard variety indexes Scotland. Second, place becomes foregrounded through the discourse surrounding language in the novel; throughout the novel, several characters comment on their own styles of speech and linguistic abilities, which highlights the focus on language and directs the reader’s attention hereto. Finally, the foregrounding of place happens through the ideology that favours Standard English over nonstandard English. This channel of foregrounding appears through the characters' ability or inability to style-shift between nonstandard English and Standard English, and the effects of the ability or inability to do so. We argue that the unique nature of the vernacular language used in Trainspotting emplaces the characters and novel solidly in Scotland through the indexical nature of language.

  • What can Google Trends data tell us about dialect labels: An exploratory
           study

    • Authors: Marie Møller Jensen
      Abstract: The aim of this article is twofold: firstly, it sets out to explore the usefulness of Google Trends to the study of language and the perception of variants and, secondly, it investigates the social realities of dialect labels as reflected in searches on the Internet search engine Google. Google Trends is an online tool which is freely available and allows you to map the search volume of search terms across time and space, and also see which other related searches Google users performed within the specified time period or area. In this way, Google Trends can perhaps help us shed light on what it is Google users are curious about or interested in when they search for words such as Geordie, Scouse and Cockney – is it the dialects which the labels denote or is it something else' The study thus takes as its primary interest the application of the Google Trends search tool to the study of folk perceptions of dialect labels and, as a secondary aim, if this can be used to uncover what these dialect labels denote to lay people. With regard to the first aim, the study found that using Google Trends data can be useful in the early stages of perceptual dialectology studies of dialects and dialect labels. With regard to the second aim, the main finding of the study was that there are vast differences between the three dialect labels investigated here, both in terms of sheer search volume over time  but also with regard to the collocates with which they are associated. Explanations for some of the patterns of search volume over time and the differences between the three dialect labels are sought by considering the impact of popular culture and TV shows.

  • The Twitter Age: Communication across genders in the Arabian Gulf

    • Authors: Muna Balfaqeeh
      Abstract: During the last decade, different platforms of social media have become the most crucial vehicles for communication, especially among teenagers. The rapid changes and enhancements in technology have gone hand in hand with a major shift in young people's language and communication. Studies conducted in this field have highlighted gender differences in terms of each gender's participation in social media, whether in quality or quantity. They have also proved that women’s participation still mirrors what is happening in their daily social lives; and regardless of the culture in which the communication is taking place, social media is yet another male-dominated arena. This paper will highlight the differences between genders in their computer-mediated communication (social media) in the Arabian Gulf. It will focus on the discourse management skills and politeness strategies used by both genders. The paper will use critical discourse analysis as the method of analysis, since the negotiation between genders can also be seen as a negotiation of power. It will analyze Arabic data taken from Twitter, one of the most commonly used social media platforms, with the aim of locating the language used by the Arabian Gulf youth and seeing whether it fits the international paradigm or has its own distinct characteristics. The main hypothesis is that women's language in the Gulf actually mirrors the unique status of women there, in such a way that power features, the so-called men's language features, are more commonly used by women than men.

  • A research framework for second nonverbal code acquisition

    • Authors: Mariel Lee Schroeder
      Abstract: Nonverbal communication and language are two important components of human communication, yet the relationship between the two is severely understudied. One important question – When is learning another culture’s foreign language not enough to be an effective communicator' – has special applicability to teachers and students of foreign languages. Compared to the acquisition of second languages, very little is known about the acquisition of second nonverbal codes. The extent to which different forms of nonverbal communication are universal versus culturally-constructed and involuntary versus voluntary is discussed, followed by the proposal of a framework within which empirical research on second nonverbal code acquisition may be conducted. The framework segments the forms of nonverbal communication into four different quadrants, and the feasibility and value of second nonverbal code acquisition for each quadrant are discussed. Research questions suggested by each quadrant and the implications of possible findings are also discussed. By revealing several gaps in our understanding of nonverbal communication and its relationship with language and culture, the framework highlights the need for more empirical work on nonverbal communication and the acquisition of second nonverbal codes. A deeper understanding of the cross-cultural variation of nonverbal communication and second nonverbal code acquisition could reduce intercultural miscommunication, strengthen learners' communicative competence, and uncover new insights about the nature of human communication, especially regarding the intersection between language, culture, and cognition.
