Offering a practical, research-based introduction to first and second language acquisition, this guide to English language teaching presumes no prior knowledge of linguistics or language education. The new edition includes two additional chapters covering technology and how reflective teaching practices support CLT-based activities, case studies to consolidate theory and demonstrate best practice and updated real world examples, drawing on teaching experiences from North America, Africa and Asia. Taking a 'big picture' view of second language learning and teaching, this is an energising and fun resource for language practitioners.

TESOL and Sustainability

English Language Teaching in the Anthropocene Era Edited by Jason Goulah, DePaul University, USA & John Katunich, Penn State University, USA This book begins a dialogue about the opportunities and responsibilities presented to the TESOL field to re-orient professional practice in ways that drive cultural change and engender alternate language practices. Covering climate change, habitat loss, food insecurity and mass migration, chapters argue that such crises require not only technological innovation, but also cultural changes in how human beings relate to each other and their environment. The book addresses the ways in which discourses such as ecopedagogy, the critique of neo-liberalism non-Western philosophy and posthumanist thought can inform how and what is taught in ESL and EFL classrooms.

Genetic Translation Studies

Conflict and Collaboration in Liminal Spaces Edited by Ariadne Nunes, University of Lisbon, Portugal, Joana Moura, Catholic University of Portugal, Portugal & Marta Pacheco Pinto, University of Lisbon, Portugal Examining the research possibilities, debates and challenges posed by the emerging field of genetic translation studies, this book demonstrates how genetic criticism can shed light on the creative process of translation. Drawing on manuscripts, typographical proofs, personal papers, letters, testimonies and interviews, chapters examine translations of works by Vladimir Nabokov, Saint-John Perse, Nikos Kazantzakis, René Char, António Lobo Antunes and Camilo Castelo Branco.

Expressing Critical Thinking through Disciplinary Texts Insights from Five Genre Studies

Ian Bruce, University of Waikato, Hamilton, New Zealand Ian Bruce takes a genre-based approach to compare the textual expression of critical thinking in samples of academic, professional and journalistic writing, using five studies to examine the similarities and differences in the elements deployed across different genres. Looking at phenomena such as the relations between propositions and words which express the writer’s personal attitude, content-organizing patterns and the role of metaphor, this book highlights the most important contributory factors in the expression of critical thinking.

Essentials for Successful English Language Teaching

Celebrity Translation in British Theatre Relevance and Reception, Voice and Visibility Robert Stock, Warwick University, UK This book explores the impact that high-profile translators have on audience reception of translated theatre. Analysing Mark Ravenhill’s translation of Life of Galileo by Bertolt Brecht, Roger McGough’s translation of Tartuffe by Molière and Simon Stephens’ translation of A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen, and drawing on interviews, audience feedback, reviews, blogs and social media posts, Stock examines the extent to which audiences infer the celebrity translator’s own voice from their translations. In doing so, he adds new perspectives to the long-standing debate on the visibility of the translator.

Sociologies of Poetry Translation Emerging Perspectives

Edited by Jacob Blakesley, University of Leeds, UK Sociologies of Poetry Translation is the first book to address poetry translation using a variety of sociological and socio-political approaches. Showcasing poetry translation looked at from the distinctive perspectives offered by theorists like Pierre Bourdieu and Niklas Luhmann, it discusses poetry translated from and/or into a variety of languages, such as Catalan, English, Russian and Swahili. Making the case for a move from the singular ‘sociology of poetry translation’ to the pluralist ‘sociologies’, this book accounts for the rich variety of approaches that are currently emerging and features new research on how ideological stances and historical movements affect poetry translation.

L I N G U I S T I C S – Discourse Analysis

Linguistic Inquiries into Donald Trump’s Language

Constructing the Welfare State in the British Press

Edited by Ulrike Schneider, University of Mainz, Germany & Matthias Eitelmann, University of Mainz, Germany

Malgorzata Paprota, Maria Curie-Sklodowska University, Poland

From 'Fake News' to 'Tremendous Success'

From short paratactic sentences to frequent repetition and parallelisms, Donald Trump’s idiolect is highly distinctive from that of previous Presidents of the USA. Combining quantitative and qualitative analyses, this volume identifies the characteristic features of Trump’s language and argues that his speech style, often underestimated by the media, is strategically implemented as a persuasive device. The chapters examine Trump’s tweets, inaugural address, political speeches, interviews, presidential debates and reality TV appearances, revealing populist language traits that establish his idiolect as a direct reflection of changing social norms.

Identity and Ideology in Digital Food Discourse

Social Media Interactions Across Cultural Contexts Edited by Alla Tovares, Howard University, USA & Cynthia Gordon, Georgetown University, USA This book demonstrates how food as a discursive resource can be mobilized to accomplish actions of social, cultural, and political consequence. Drawing on various discourse analytic frameworks to digital communication, chapters examine interactions across a range of social media, including Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Instagram and from diverse linguistic and cultural contexts. Highlighting how users display sociability and aggression, create and challenge identities, draw social and cultural boundaries, and convey political and activist stances, the book illuminates the relationship between discourse, action, and ideology.

The Prosody of Formulaic Sequences

A Corpus and Discourse Approach Phoebe Lin, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong In this book, Phoebe Lin offers a new perspective on formulaic language, arguing that while past research often treats formulaic language as a lexical phenomenon, the phonological aspect of it is a more fundamental facet. Drawing its conclusions from three original, empirical studies of spoken formulaic language, assessing intonation unit boundaries as well as features such as tempo and stress placement, Lin considers questions of methodology and conceptual framework. This book not only deepens our understanding of the nature of formulaic language but has important implications for English Language Teaching and automatic speech synthesis.

Boundaries and Metaphors in Political Discourse

Analysing political discourse in the British press during a time of crisis and austerity, this book examines how the concept of the welfare state has been constructed between 2008 and 2015. A corpus from four British newspapers from across the political spectrum is brought together to investigate the political debate on its evaluation and the ambiguity about its exact definition. A discoursehistorical approach is used to establish what the welfare state is, and conceptual metaphor theory is then used to explore its figurative conceptualisations.

Discursive Constructions of the Suicidal Process

Dariusz Galasinski, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland & Justyna Ziólkowska, University of Social Sciences and Humanities, Poland Examining narratives of suicide through a discourse analytic framework, this book demonstrates how linguistic theories and methodologies can cast light upon what suicide involves and means, both for those who commit an act and their loved ones. It is the first qualitative study to view suicide not as a single event outside time, but as a time-extended process. Engaging in close analysis of suicide letters written before the act and post-hoc narratives from after the event, the book demonstrates the value of discourse analytic insights in informing, enriching and contextualising our knowledge of suicide.

Discourses of Hope and Reconciliation

J. R. Martin’s Contribution to Systemic Functional Linguistics Edited by Michele Zappavigna, University of Sydney, Australia & Shoshana Dreyfus, University of Wollongong, Australia. Bringing together leading and emerging scholars in Systemic Functional Linguistics, this book explores the contributions made to SFL theory by James Robert Martin. Focussed around the four themes of systemic functional theory, linguistic typology, educational linguistics and (positive) discourse analysis, chapters debate and develop the key concepts of Martin's work. Engaging with cutting edge theoretical debates in areas such as discourse-semantics, register and genre and affiliation, the book examines Martin's lasting impact on the field, developing his momentous contributions to point the way to exciting future research directions in SFL.

Semiotic Writing in Cryptography

Dinda L. Gorlée, Visiting Professor of Translation Studies and Semiotics at the University of Helsinki, Finland. Employing the semiotic doctrine of Charles S. Pierce, this book examines Wittgenstein’s private secret diaries, which were written partly in plaintext and partly in a coded script. Dinda Gorlée explores what the use of language reveals about Wittgenstein's public and private identities. Using Peirce’s reasoning of deduction, induction and abduction, this book investigates how the emotional, energetic and logical interpretations of the signs and objects used in the coded diaries reflect Wittgenstein’s psychological mood.

Pragmatic Particles

Findings from Asian Languages Jieun Kiaer, University of Oxford, UK Shedding new light on the constructive and expressive role of particles in natural language syntax and semantics, this book demonstrates that particle behaviours are neither arbitrary nor peripheral. Based on SOV agglutinative languages situated in Asia, previously overlooked in theoretical linguistics, Jieun Kiaer argues that particle behaviours are motivated sociopragmatically and play a crucial role in explaining syntactic and semantic phenomena. With data drawn from Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Mongolian, Tamil, Turkish and Urdu, the constructive and attitudinal natures of the particles in these languages are analysed and modelled to that fundamentally syntactic decisions are driven by socio-pragmatic needs.

Making Sense of People and Place in Linguistic Landscapes Edited by Amiena Peck, Christopher Stroud & Quentin Williams, all of University of the Western Cape, South Africa

This volume explores how meanings of place are made, drawing on examples of linguistic landscapes (LLs) across the world from South Africa to Guadeloupe. It looks at signage structured around body/ transgressions, slum towns and migration troubles and examines how LLs contribute to the (re)imagining of different selves. It focuses particularly on how the LL is read through emotionality and affect, creating senses of belonging, precarity and hope.

Semiotics of the Christian Imagination

Signs of the Fall and Redemption Domenico Pietropaolo, University of Toronto, Canada This book analyses various examples of the imaginative semiotisation of the Fall of Man and the Church's semiotic perception of the Divine plan for Redemption. Based on a close reading of primary sources, it analyses the meaningmaking inherent in these ideas, which are filtered through and given material representation by the semiotic paradigms of various cultural fields, including philology, verbal arts and science.

The Social Semiotics of Tattoos

The Languages of Humor

Chris William Martin, Algonquin College, Ottawa, Canada

Edited by Arie Sover, The Open University of Israel, Israel

Skin and Self

L I N G U I S T I C S – Semiotics

Wittgenstein’s Secret Diaries

Verbal, Visual, and Physical Humor

Why do people put indelible marks on their bodies in an era characterized by constant cultural change? How do tattoos as semiotic resources convey meaning? What goes on behind the scenes in a tattoo studio? The Social Semiotics of Tattoos is a multimodal account of tattoos and tattooing, examining meaning-making in the visual, written and spoken realms, and other elements involved in the practice of tattooing the skin. Based on an ethnographic study of a tattoo studio as well as in-depth interviews, this book gives answers to important questions regarding embodied semiotic practices.

Featuring expert authors drawn from across the globe, this book discusses three different but complementary areas of humor. Despite the differences in their means of expression, all three belong to the study of humor as a multimodal device. Covering all three forms in one book is unique, and creates an opportunity to move from one type to another in an attempt to decipher not only the language of each type, but also their common foundation for better understanding the language of humor. This is a unique research-led book that offers a top-down analysis of humor studies.

Telecinematic Stylistics

Edited by Christian Hoffmann, University of Augsburg, Germany & Monika Kirner-Ludwig, University of Albany, New York, USA This volume shows how pragmatic themes and methods are adapted and applied to films. This includes speech acts, (im)politeness, implicature and context. Showing how pragmatic tropes and methods are applied and purposely adapted to filmic media, focussing on word, movement and gesture, this book presents current developments from the field from two complementary perspectives, looking stylistically at the discourse in film and the discourse of and around film. The study of discourse in film and television has become one of the most promising research avenues in stylistics and pragmatics and this book closes a long-standing gap by combining approaches.

Mind Style and Cognitive Grammar

Language and Worldview in Speculative Fiction Louise Nuttall, University of Huddersfield, UK Mind Style and Cognitive Grammar makes the case for cognitive grammar as a rich and unified framework for the analysis of mind style, with a focus on the strange minds and worlds encountered in the genre of speculative fiction. Key notions in cognitive grammar are evaluated and developed in light of existing frameworks for the stylistic analysis of discourse: systemicfunctional grammar and text world theory, and the resulting approach applied to four experientially and ideologically powerful speculative fiction novels.

New Directions in Cognitive Grammar and Style

Edited by Marcello Giovanelli, Aston University, UK, Chloe Harrison, Coventry University, UK & Louise Nuttall, University of Huddersfield, UK This book is the first to bring together applications of cognitive grammar for a range of stylistic purposes, including the analysis of both literary and non-literary discourse. Chapters apply this framework to poetry, narrative fiction, comics, press reports, political discourse and music, as well as exploring its potential for the teaching of language and literature. Combining cutting-edge research in cognitive, critical and pedagogical stylistics, the book showcases the latest developments in this field and offers new insights into our experiences of texts by drawing on current understandings of language and cognition.

Narrative Retellings Stylistic Approaches

Edited by Marina Lambrou, Kingston University, UK Presenting pioneering work at the intersection of stylistics and narrative study, this volume explores the many ways in which narratives are retold in literary and non-literary texts. Taking an empirical stylistic approach, chapters analyse the process of retelling across a rich variety of genres and contexts, including literary classics, contemporary horror, personal traumatic experience, news stories and cosmetic advertising. The volume reconceptualises common retellings, such as translation, adaptation and modernisation, and offers fresh insights into experiences retold as autofiction, witness statements and advertorials on social media.

Saying and Doing in Zapotec Multimodality, Resonance, and the Language of Joint Actions

Mark A. Sicoli, University of Virginia, USA

Exploring the ways in which the development of linguistic practices helped expand national politics in remote areas of Venezuela, this book situates language as a mediating force in the creation of the 'magical state'. Focusing on the Waraos speakers of the Orinoco Delta, it explores center–periphery dynamics in Venezuela through an innovative linguistic anthropological lens and a semiotic framework. Through the collision between Warao and Spanish, it highlights how language ideologies can exclude or integrate indigenous populations in the public sphere and how they were transformed by Hugo Chavez' revolutionary government to promote loyalty to the regime.

A multimodal ethnography of language as living process, this book demonstrates methods for the integrated analysis of talk, gesture, and material culture, developing a fresh way to understand human language through a focus on jointly achieved social actions to which it is part. Based on findings from a participatory, multimedia language documentation project in a highland Zapotec community of Oaxaca, Mexico, Mark A. Sicoli brings together goals of documentary linguistics and anthropological concern with the everyday means and ends of human social life with theoretical consequences for the analysis of linguistic and cultural reproduction and change.

Critical Kinship Studies and Family Discourse

Implications for Language Socialization and Policy Lyn Wright, University of Memphis, USA Applying critical kinship studies to the study of multilingual families, this book foregrounds kinship, gender, and sexuality in discussions of family language ideologies, practices, and planning and affords a new point of view on family language processes. Focusing on historically marginalized families in multilingual family research (including adoptive, single parent, and LGBTQ+), the book centers nonnormative family configurations as a way to focus on kinship processes. It explores the construction of family in private and public spheres, including interview and interactional data in homes as well as public forms of production such as memoirs, documentaries, and even comedy.

Exploring the ways in which language and conflict are intertwined, this book examines the changes that have taken place in the public discourse of the Ukraine and Russia since 2014 and the beginning of the 'Ukrainian Crisis.' Through critical discourse analysis and multimodality, chapters use Russian- and Ukrainian-language texts from traditional and social media to highlight how the stress of social discord, economic hardship and violence is reflected in verbal aggression, slurs, insults and profane language. In doing so, the book provides insight into the ways people think about and respond to conflict in their everyday communication.

The Meaning of the Circus

The Communicative Experience of Cult, Art, and Awe Paul Bouissac, University of Toronto, Canada The Meaning of the Circus is grounded on the personal experience of the Professor Paul Bouissac as both a circus entrepreneur and a researcher, with decades of primary material on the significance of past and contemporary circus acts. It is based on substantial accounts provided by many men and women who have agreed to share the challenges, joys, and anxieties of their life as artists. Personal and rigorous, it contributes to the hermeneutics of the circus arts by adding existential depth to the production and reception of their performances.

L I N G U I S T I C S – Sociolinguistics

The Discursive Construction of Identity and Space Among Mobile People Roberta Piazza, University of Sussex, UK

The volume offers a close look at three marginalised groups: Irish travellers, squatters and homeless people. The study’s objectives are to understand more about these socially marginal groups and how individuals within them position themselves vis-à-vis mainstream society and to investigate the groups’ diverse and provisional relationship with space that challenges mainstream society’s spatial logic.

Becoming a Citizen

Linguistic Trials and Negotiations in the UK Kamran Khan, University of Leicester, UK This book empirically investigates how the naturalisation process is experienced with an explicit focus on language practices. Focussing on the experiences of a Yemeni immigrant in the United Kingdom during the last eleven months of the citizenship process, this book provides a nuanced portrayal of the complexities of becoming a citizen. Drawing upon a wide range of theorists, from philosophy, psychology and linguistics, this book offers a detailed analysis of the process of becoming a citizen and makes a welcome contribution to the area of citizenship in language testing, sociolinguistics, sociology and ethnic relations.

Linguistic Landscapes Beyond the Language Classroom

Edited by Corinne Seals, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand & Greg Niedt, Drexel University, USA This book argues that anywhere can be a space for people to learn from displayed texts, images, and other communicated signs, and consequently a space where teachable cultural moments are created. Bridging theoretical research and practical application, chapters consider how we make sense of places by understanding how the landscape is used to express, claim and contest identities and ideologies. In this way, the book highlights the unexpected potential of the informal settings for learning and for teachers to expand their students' intercultural experience.

Offensive Language

Taboo, Offence and Social Control Jim O’Driscoll, University of Huddersfield, UK Offensive Language applies concepts from linguistic pragmatics and sociolinguistics to a wide range of examples, from TV to Twitter and from Mel Gibson to Donald Trump. Establishing a sharp distinction between potential offence and actual offence, Jim O'Driscoll then examines a series of case studies where offence has been caused, assessing the nature and degree of both the offence and the documented response to it in. Through close linguistic analysis, this book explores the fine line between free speech and criminal activity, searching for a principle way to distinguish the merely embarrassing from the reprehensible and the censurable.

The Language of Touch

Philosophical Examinations in Linguistics and Haptic Studies Edited by Mirt Komel, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia Offering an in-depth analysis of the relationship between touch and language through the history of philosophy, this book revitalizes the field of haptic studies and provides new insights in the philosophy of language. Drawing together an international team of linguists, anthropologists and philosophers, this book demonstrates from a variety of disciplinary perspectives that the experience of touch is inextricable from the structure of language. Examining figures such as Nancy, Derrida and Lacan, The Language of Touch questions both how language structures touch and how touch structures language.
