  • To Use or Not to Use humor' A Case Study on Chinese Secondary School
           EFL Teachers

    • Authors: Hongji Jiang
      Abstract: While there is no lack of studies on the benefits of using humor in English class, why Chinese EFL teachers choose to use humor or not use it remains unclear. Previous studies examined the benefits of the use of humor in language classrooms, but none of them has queried a deep understanding of the role of humor from teachers’ perspectives. It comprised a case study focusing on three English as a foreign language (EFL) teachers from a secondary school in China. The data were collected over a period of six months using semi-structured interviews, observations and stimulated recall interviews. This qualitative case study found five reasons for the Chinese EFL teachers’ use of humor, which are teaching strategy, students’ benefits, atmosphere & relationship, teachers’ benefits and teachers’ ability. The potential explanations behind each reason were also discussed in the study.

  • Speech Acts of the Jordanian Military vs. ISIS Narrative in the Wake of
           Mu’ath Alkasasbh’s Murder

    • Authors: Mohammed Al-Twijir; Ahmad EL-Sharif
      Abstract: The aim of this research is three folds: first, investigating the differences in the ideological stands of both conflicting sides: Jordanian political discourse and ISIS terrorism discourse. Second, shedding light on the salient features of the Jordanian Discourse on terrorism and the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq (ISIS) Terrorism’s Discourse in the wake of the Jordanian pilot Moath Al-kasasbah heinous crime. Third, identifying the persuasion strategies utilized by both sides for the aim of affecting the opinion of the public. The data whose concern included official statements of the Jordanian officials from one side, and the narrative of ISIS exemplified in the script of the video which revealed the destiny of the Jordanian pilot. The methodology adopted in achieving the aims of the study is mainly based on speech act analysis on Searle’s typology of five performative speech acts (directives, declaratives, commissives, expressives, and assertaives). The analysis of the data revealed the following findings: first, both parties showed its own conflicting ideologies in which they defended their cause. Second, the conflicting sides utilized performative speech acts in varying proportions and styles for the sake of persuading the audience. This poignant variation reflects the inclination of both parties to use different persuasion strategies in order to influence the opinion of the public for the aim of garnering support for their cause. The research concludes with a recommendation that various studies need to conduct in order to investigate the various linguistic features founded in this type of discourse and which can be utilized in other models of discourse analysis.

  • Global English: Neither a “Hydra” nor a “Tyrannosaurus Rex” or a
           “Red Herring” but an Ecology of Approaches Towards Social Justice

    • Authors: Kyria Rebeca Finardi
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to reflect about the possibility of viewing Global English as an arena to use an ecology of approaches towards social justice. The discussion afforded here problematizes approaches that are purely recognition oriented, such as decolonial perspectives based on race, while also questioning the use of redistribution approaches based on class only and that do not consider critical perspectives. Drawing on the work of decolonial authors mainly from Latin America, four vignettes from the author’s experience are brought to illustrate the discussion. The argument advanced in the paper is that an ecology of approaches is needed to tackle recognition issues involved in language use but if the aim is to address redistribution, that is, social justice, language researchers have to incorporate new questions and perhaps approaches engaging to a much greater extent with the underlying causes of social injustice that correlates with the spread of English.

  • Language Conflict, Attitude and Language Choice in a Bilingual Academic

    • Authors: Comfort Nchang Numfor
      Abstract: This paper set out to examine the language attitude and factors that determine the language choice of students of the Special Bilingual Classes of the English Department of Government Bilingual High School (G.B.H.S) Bayelle Nkwen Bamenda. This was done by examining the factors, which determine the Francophone students’ rising interest in their choice of studying English. Students of the Special Bilingual Classes were chosen to be the focus of this research based on their bilingual learning setting. The data was collected through questionnaires and interviews. Questionnaire and interview guide were designed to capture the Francophone students’ attitude and their choice of studying English, when they already have French that they can use in all circumstances. The results revealed that the Francophone students of the Special Bilingual Classes of the English Department hold a positive attitude toward English. Both teachers and students of the Special Bilingual Classes of the English Department of G.B.H.S Bayelle did indicate some kind of shift from French to English that reflects the latter’s position as a global lingua franca, associated with western style of life, prosperity and economic development, scholarship, carrier opportunity, science and technology, to name just a few. The results also showed preponderant influence or authority over students from English speaking background which prevents them from having a sound education.
