  • The Term depression in Contemporary Lithuanian Journalism

    • Authors: Palmira Zemlevičiūtė
      Pages: 1 - 1
      Abstract: The article attempts to look into the ways that the special meaning of the term depression (Lith. depresija) changes in the discourse of journalism and the factors that drive those changes. Analysis of nearly 2,000 sentences featured in the Corpus of the Contemporary Lithuanian Language that contain the term depression has shown that only one meaning of this term (medical) undergoes transformation as the term transcends the boundaries of a special field, while the rest of its meanings are not susceptible to change. First, the terminological meanings in which this term is used in the material covered by the analysis basically do not change at all, and no break between the term and the underlying concept occurs. Second, the terminological (medical) meaning changes to an extent, and the concept becomes simplified. Third, the terminological meaning undergoes a series of different semantic transformations and the term becomes even more detached from the special meaning, acquiring a number of emotional, expressive shades. These transformations depend on the topics covered by texts, the intentions of the authors, the contextual partners (adjectives, verbs), which often carry some stylistic connotations. Still, it can be sometimes difficult to determine the extent of transformation of the terminological meaning of the term depression with a high degree of accuracy. At times, the boundary between the term depression and the word depression becomes unclear.

  • Topics in Foreign Language Teaching in Research Articles in
           Psycholinguistics: Reviewing the State-of-the-Art

    • Authors: Oleksandr Kapranov
      Pages: 2 - 2
      Abstract: The article introduces a study whose purpose is to provide a review of research articles (RAs) in psycholinguistics which focus on foreign language teaching (FLT). To that end, the study examines a corpus of RAs in psycholinguistics that address FLT-related research topics, which are published in two international peer-reviewed journals, namely Psycholinguistics and Eastern European Journal of Psycholinguistics. The corpus was examined for the presence of research topics in FLT, as well as the RAs’ bibliometric data. The results of the corpus analysis revealed that the majority of the RAs were single-authored by female researchers, who focused on such FLT-related research topics as translation and interpreting, speaking in a foreign language (FL), and FL proficiency. It was established that the FLT-themed RAs investigated primarily English as a Foreign Language (EFL) and, less frequently, German, Chinese, Japanese, Latin, and Ukrainian. The findings are further described and discussed in the article.

  • Prompting Metalinguistic Awareness in Large Language Models: ChatGPT and
           Bias Effects on the Grammar of Italian and Italian Varieties

    • Authors: Angelapia Massaro, Giuseppe Samo
      Pages: 4 - 4
      Abstract: We explore ChatGPT’s handling of left-peripheral phenomena in Italian and Italian varieties through prompt engineering to investigate 1) forms of syntactic bias in the model, 2) the model’s metalinguistic awareness in relation to reorderings of canonical clauses (e.g., Topics) and certain grammatical categories (object clitics). A further question concerns the content of the model’s sources of training data: how are minor languages included in the model’s training' The results of our investigation show that 1) the model seems to be biased against reorderings, labelling them as archaic even though it is not the case; 2) the model seems to have difficulties with coindexed elements such as clitics and their anaphoric status, labeling them as ‘not referring to any element in the phrase’, and 3) major languages still seem to be dominant, overshadowing the positive effects of including minor languages in the model’s training.
      Keywords: Articles ; Expressions of Lithuanian Identity in the Spoken Language Corpus of
             Repatriated Children

      • Authors: Anželika Gaidienė, Aurelija Tamulionienė
        Pages: 4 - 4
        Abstract: The aim of the article is to analyse the spoken corpus samples with the lexemes Lietuva, lietuvis, lietuviškas and lietuviškai of the repatriated children and to show how the children's Lithuanian identity expressed through the use of these lexemes. The aim of the research was to explore the perception of Lithuania among the repatriated children, what they (dis)like in Lithuania, what characteristics of Lithuania, Lithuanians, etc., they identify, etc. The research material consists of data from 73 children (aged 8-12). Examples of these lexemes were collected from the first part of the semi-structured interview "warm-up", in which the pupils introduced themselves, talked about their family, friends, place of residence, etc. In this part of the interview, the children were also asked what they like in Lithuania, what they don't like and why. The analysis of the examples found showed that the Lithuanian identity of the repatriated children is most broadly expressed through social and cultural aspects. This significantly points to factors important for adaptation.
        Keywords: Articles ; Developing an institutional language policy in the complex scenario of
               internationalization

        • Authors: Caroline Clark
          Pages: 6 - 6
          Abstract: Over the last 20 years since the Bologna Agreement the role of language in Higher Education has gained recognition as an integral part of the teaching/learning process, and an essential element of the process of internationalization. The rapid shift towards internationalization has had a pronounced effect on academic life, procedure, and personnel. In this process, it has often become the role of Language Centres to organize the language aspect, and to a more limited extent, to advise on language.This short paper looks at the involvement of the University of Padova Language Centre (CLA) in the process of internationalization, and in particular the promotion of a language policy. A project developed to promote language and teaching methodology courses for academic staff required to teach in English, and the findings of research based on this project, led to recognition of the need to draft a language policy which encompasses the wide-ranging issues relevant to successful internationalization.

      • Language Policy at Universities in the Process of Internationalisation:
               Vilnius University Students’ Views

        • Authors: Roma Kriaučiūnienė, Rasa Šlikaitė
          Pages: 8 - 8
          Abstract: The current paper focuses on the study of novel lexical items, i. e. the processes involved in the making of new words, in order to discover which methods contribute to the expansion of the current English lexicon. The research is based on the new words coined since 2004 which are included in the Oxford English Dictionary (OED) Online (ensuring that the items in the sample cover various semantic fields, are of diverse origins, and all are already accepted into the working vocabulary). Two objectives are completed to explore the subject and achieve its aim: 1) to establish the concept of new words and to overview the processes of lexical expansion in the English language, and 2) to determine which methods are employed and which are absent in the creation of new words in current English by analyzing the novel lexical items retrieved from the OED Online. Quantitative and qualitative methods are applied in this study. The results indicate that the concept of new words is not straightforward in the English language. More often than not, the terms neologisms and new words are used synonymously to refer to recent, novel lexical items recognized and used by the language community. English has an extensive inventory of word-forming tools classified into these distinct categories: word-formation, semantic change, borrowing, and other; each further subdivided into various processes. Overall, the subtypes of word-formation – derivation, shortening and compounding – are used the most in the creation of recent additions to the lexicon. Predominantly, the findings are consistent with the tendencies of lexical expansion observed in previous studies.

      • Multilingualism as a Key Challenge for Higher Education Language Policy:
               The ARQUS Perspective

        • Authors: Olaf Bärenfänger, Alba Delgado, Kerstin Gackle
          Pages: 9 - 9
          Abstract: Language plays an essential role in education, where it serves as both the medium of instruction and key to communication. To warrant successful teaching, learning, research and academic mobility, universities must develop a clear vision about the role of language(s) at their institution. For example, they must develop strategies to promote continual growth of their students’ and staff’s professional and academic language skills. This article will report on an initiative undertaken within the Arqus European University Alliance to formulate a comprehensive language policy. To do so, five thematic areas essential to language policies in higher education were identified and questions were developed to gather information from all of the partner universities. This information was then incorporated in the planning and design of a language policy for the Alliance. The Arqus Language Policy now stands as a guideline for university members to develop a clear vision of language in higher education as well as a joint reflection and agreement on the role of multilingual communication in society. In the second phase of the project, further actions and measures can be planned on this basis.

      • Arqus University Alliance Staff Members' Linguistic and Intercultural
               Needs: Survey Results

        • Authors: Simone Klinge, Barbara Gödeke
          Pages: 10 - 10
          Abstract: The Arqus European Higher Education Alliance identified as one of its priorities the development of linguistic and intercultural competences of university staff as a measure to ensure high quality teaching and services to students and staff. The present paper presents the main results of a questionnaire that was sent to all academic and administrative staff of the alliance member universities in May and June 2021 that asked about their linguistic and intercultural training needs. The findings of the results were intended to guide actions within the language policy of the universities and serve as a basis for designing joint workshops for staff members according to their needs. The overwhelming majority of the 2206 staff members that completed the questionnaire deemed intercultural training and language training necessary for their professional activity. The languages indicated were wide in range, whereby English clearly stood out, reflecting its growing importance as the lingua franca in academia.

      • Analysis of English-Spanish False Friends

        • Authors: Lina Inčiuraitė-Noreikienė, Deimantė Šarkaitė
          Pages: 11 - 11
          Abstract: The present study aims to carry out an analysis of English-Spanish false friends in order to establish the most prevailing type of false friends and to determine their degree of falseness and semantic resemblance. Qualitative and quantitative methods were used to conduct the research. The results of the analysis have shown that the most dominant part of speech among false friends in English and Spanish is the category of nouns. The vast majority of false friends share their origins in Latin. The most prevailing type of false friends is semantic total. The data gathered from the questionnaire display that the majority of language users are familiar with the phenomenon and can recognize and understand the meaning of the false friend word pairs.
