  • Multimodal Discourse of Corporate Public Service Advertisements: A Case
           Study of China UnionPay’s “The Fairy Tale of Poetry”

    • Abstract: Multimodal discourse is a crucial method for presenting information in a comprehensive and impactful manner. Public service advertisements, in particular, employ multimodal discourse to convey distinct economic and social significance. This study examines the qualities and effectiveness of corporate public service discourse by analyzing China UnionPay’s public service advertisement “The Fairy Tale of Poetry”. The video is initially annotated using Elan. The video discourse analysis has three components: ideational meaning, interpersonal meaning, and textual meaning, which are all derived from Visual Grammar. The study of text conversation is thereafter conducted via LancsBox and Wordless. Several suggestions are put up to enhance the communication effectiveness of public service advertisements: Regarding video discourse, it proposes developing a strong connection between color, focus, and content. This may be achieved by employing visual storytelling strategies, such as altering backdrops, employing complete and metonymic representation, employing a chronological narrative, and integrating texts and pictures. Within the realm of verbal communication, the deliberate selection of sentence length and structure, together with the frequent use of significant words and the incorporation of a dialect, work together to highlight the significance of core ideas and evoke emotional resonance.

  • Exploring EFL Teachers’ Insights Regarding Artificial Intelligence
           Driven Tools in Student-Centered Writing Instructions

    • Abstract: The significance of technology integration including artificial intelligence (AI)-mediated tools has established a notable presence in the academic spectrum. Despite the abundance of studies available on AI-mediated technology integration in writing instructions in diverse settings, there remains an apparent gap in exploring teachers’ insights, particularly within the context of Arab universities. Therefore, the current study explores the employment of AI-driven tools in student-centered writing instructions from English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teachers’ perspectives. Using a qualitative research methodology, this study collected data through semi-structured interviews with a sample of (N = 16) teachers from four different universities. The content analysis indicates that teachers strongly perceive a positive impact of AI writing assistants on both student involvement and the role of teachers. Additionally, they underscore the significance of professional development and the role of AI in facilitating student-centered approach for effective writing instructions. While acknowledging the efficiency, customization, and time-saving aspects of AI tools, they also expressed reservations about potential issues such as overreliance, bias, digital divide, and concerns regarding accuracy. Furthermore, the participants observed the ways to address issues and concerns associated with the integration of AI-mediated tools include, but not limited to, clear communication, ethical considerations, academic integrity, teacher roles, ongoing and latest AI updates, student-centered learning, and professional development. Finally, the study offers limitations and recommendations for future research.

  • Ecological Discourse Analysis of the English Translations of Song of Peach
           Blossom Land from the Perspective of Transitivity

    • Abstract: In light of the degradation of the ecological environment, linguists have integrated ecology with linguistics, giving rise to the emergence of ecolinguistics. Ecological Discourse Analysis (EDA), as a form of discourse analysis, serves as an analytical approach within the field of ecolinguistics. Considering that Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) can be applied in analyzing ecological discourses and acknowledging the existing differences between Chinese and English languages, this paper conducts an EDA on both Chinese and English translations of “Song of Peach Blossom Land” from a transitivity perspective, aiming to present disparities in translation skills and accuracy. The results reveal that material processes account for over 50% of processes in all three texts and are consistently observed throughout them. Natural ecology is portrayed through depictions of the peach blossom land’s scenery; social ecology is presented by describing the social background and friendly relationship between the fisherman and villagers; spiritual ecology is embodied by his decision to leave his hometown but ultimately return to this land again. Furthermore, disparities in translation skills and accuracy exist within the Chinese-English translation.

  • The Ecology of English Loanwords in Chinese: A Case Study of Cement

    • Abstract: From an ecolinguistic perspective, this study focuses on five English loanwords in Chinese related to the field of cement, as defined in the Modern Chinese Dictionary. The research quantitatively examines the ecological dynamics of these loanwords using two indicators: lexical niche breadth and overlap. The goal is to uncover the evolutionary mechanism governing their adaptation. The findings show: (1) The emergence of English loanwords is intricately linked to specific social environments. As new concepts and items are introduced from abroad, the masses initially make new loanwords, which are later standardized by authoritative bodies. (2) The vitality of loanwords correlates with their niche breadth. The competition among lexical variants is influenced by niche overlap. The loanwords for cement, ranked by vitality in descending order, are ShuiNi (3.221), YangHui (2.350), ShuiMenTing (1.385), HongMaoNi (1.202), and ShiMinTu (0.879). (3) The endangerment of loanwords results from a combination of external (social environment) and internal (language system) factors. Intense competition arises due to the presence of multiple synonyms for the same entity, and localization challenges occur when the loanwords do not precisely fit the entity. Among the five loanwords for cement, the first two exhibit higher vitality and continue to develop sustainably, while the last three show lower vitality and are gradually becoming endangered. As these loanwords undergo continuous evolution, a lexical ecocontinuum emerges: extinct in the wild—ShiMinTu; critically endangered—HongMaoNi; endangered—ShuiMenTing; vulnerable—YangHui; least concerned—ShuiNi.

  • Voice Typing to Enhance English Intermediate Level Learners’ Speaking
           Proficiency: A Case Study

    • Abstract: This mixed-methods case study explores the effectiveness of Google Docs’ voice typing feature in enhancing the English oral skills of nine university students at the intermediate level. These university students were selected to utilize voice typing for their end-of-term oral presentations, engaging in two practice sessions each week for six weeks period. Training was provided to ensure proficiency in the use of voice typing. To gauge progress, a qualitative analysis of the data was performed, focusing on any advancements in speaking capabilities, with the students’ final speaking project scores serving as the primary metric for evaluation. Evaluation of the final speaking project was conducted by two teachers, and to validate the assessment process, inter-rater reliability tests were implemented. In addition to the quantitative assessment, qualitative data were gathered through interviews, wherein students conveyed their initial challenges with the voice typing feature, particularly concerning speech recognition inaccuracies. Despite these initial hurdles, participants reported a smoother experience as they became more accustomed to the tool. The study underscores the educational benefits of voice typing and advocates for continued investigation into this promising field, particularly given the rise of Artificial Intelligence technologies adept at accommodating diverse accents and proficiency levels.

  • Comprehension of English Conditionals by Advanced Arabic-English Bilingual
           Speakers

    • Abstract: The aim of this research is to determine the comprehension level of advanced Arabic L2 speakers of English conditionals, types I, II, and III. An online test was used which consisted of a total of 60 questions. The test questions were divided into two sections: syntactic structure questions and inference of meaning questions. These were grouped into 20 questions for each conditional type. Thirty-five participants, 29 females and six males, were recruited. The findings demonstrated that the participants' comprehension level was not high. Furthermore, conditional type II was observed to be the most difficult type of conditional. The findings also revealed that participants performed better in inference of meaning questions than in syntactic structure questions. Investigating such conditional constructions offers us a deeper understanding of the relationship between form and meaning.

  • A Corpus-Based Critical Discourse Analysis of Chinese and American News
           Coverage on Climate Change

    • Abstract: As the 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27) convened, the climate issue remained a focal point of coverage in both Chinese and American mainstream media. This paper seeks to explore the linguistic features of news discourse of climate change in China and the United States and the discursive strategy applied to strengthen national ideologies. Taking the reports on climate change in China Daily and Los Angeles Times within 2 months after COP27 as the research corpus, this paper examines the language features, the discursive processes of the text and possible social factors through a combination of corpus linguistics(CL) and critical discourse analysis(CDA) under the framework of Fairclough’s Three-Dimensional Model of Discourse. The finding suggests that both countries enhance national ideologies by constructing a responsible national image through objective climate reporting. Chinese media tends to focus on national efforts to improve ecological environment and global cooperation, while US newspaper attaches importance to climate security and pursues a leading position in global ecological governance.

  • The Perceptions of Saudi EFL Students Toward the Effect of Anxiety on
           Their Oral Communication

    • Abstract: Oral communication is one of the most important skills of communication among individuals with each other. It refers to communication between the students and their teachers through the spoken language, which includes a group of distinctive words, phrases, and sentences which are associated with specific meanings. However, there are many barriers that affect this communication. Therefore, this study addresses some of the barriers of anxiety when communicating using the English language in which it constitutes a major problem for EFL students and hinders their goals in learning the English language. This study aims to investigate the EFL students’ perceptions towards the effect of anxiety on their oral communication in various Saudi universities. Moreover, it explores some strategies that may help EFL students to overcome this problem. The research instrument used in this study was a questionnaire that was modified for the purposes of the study. The questionnaire consisted of 20 items divided into two parts. Furthermore, 102 EFL students participated in this study. The results showed that EFL students suffer from anxiety while speaking English, whether in a discussion class with the teacher or when presenting a presentation. The participants also agreed with most of the strategies stated in the survey. Based on the findings, recommendations and suggestions for further research are provided.

  • “View and Hide Definitions” of Racist Hate Speech: Ethnophaulisms in
           Google’s English Dictionary

    • Abstract: This paper aims to foster debate about the language of racist hate speech in online English lexicography. For this purpose, it presents a study on the treatment of ethnophaulisms, or ethnic slurs, in “powered by Oxford Languages” Google’s English dictionary. The focus is indeed on the perspective of the general user of the Internet, in light of the connection between two facets of this digital age. The first one is the strong and growing tendency among Internet users to ‘google’ their language issues. The second one is the alarming increase in cases of hate speech online, most of which are based on ethnicity and nationality, according to reports by the United Nations. Consequently, the free and pervasive content of Google’s English dictionary represents a case in point to investigate whether and how online users are warned against the power of these hate words. A selected sample of 285 English ethnic slurs have been looked up in the dictionary and, if recorded, their entries have been scrutinised to identify lexicographic data regarding their semantic relevance and offensiveness. Findings show that the majority are included, they mostly present ethnicity-related senses, but less than half of the total are treated as ethnophaulisms. In this respect, the major dictionary markers indicating offensiveness are effect labels, predominantly alone or combined with definitions. Relative to their size, thus, ethnophaulisms in Google’s English dictionary are clearly described as offensive or derogatory expressions, thus making online users aware of their hurtful nature.
