Grammatical Theory, Language Processing and Databases in Historical Linguistics
In order to guarantee open access and full searchability, research in historical lexicography and lexicology must follow the same directions as the evolution of the Internet, which has moved from hypertext-based resources to more significative services and products stored and disseminated through databases and, more recently, through knowledge bases. Against this background, this book addresses specific questions like What is involved in the digitisation of linguistic data? What annotation systems can give rise to datasets compatible with knowledge bases? What standards are needed to reach full searchability? What sources and methods can be used to gather the lemmas of a historical dictionary? What determines the obsolescence of lexicographical resources?
The English Subtitling of the Weekly Thai Prime Ministerial Addresses
The book explores the complex relationship between ideology, language, and cultural nuances during subtitling, illuminating the translators' strategic decisions in capturing the depth of Thai political speech. It exposes the nuanced ways in which language can affect the comprehension of political messages and shape perceptions by drawing on an abundance of examples. Ideology at Play looks at the problems and opportunities that come up when these famous speeches are translated. It covers linguistic subtleties, cultural sensitivities, and the complicated relationship between language and politics. It gives new ideas about how ideology shows up in translated texts.
This book intends to look into CLIL teaching professional practice through the prism of reflection. It offers a comprehensive coverage of a CLIL teacher’s features, their attitudes to the approach, teaching methodology, assessment, materials development, cooperation with other CLIL and non-CLIL teachers, professional development, expectations and beliefs. Furthermore, it focuses on CLIL teachers’ positive and negative emotions experienced in relation to CLIL. As a CLIL trainer I spend a lot of time with CLIL teachers trying to guide them in the process of teaching in CLIL but also to help them face many challenges and overcome obstacles which often discourage them from working in the CLIL environment. Being greatly inspired by the ongoing research in the field but also by my CLIL trainee teachers I felt there was a need to conduct such research and make the reader reflect on his/her own teaching experiences in CLIL.

A crucial question for Chinese as a Second Language research is how to help elevate Chinese language teaching methodology to the level of other world language methodologies such as English, Spanish and German. This work goes in two directs. One explores how to apply research results achieved in Chinese linguistics to Chinese language teaching and the other is engaged in creating a strong applied linguistics research field that supports Chinese language teaching. CASLAR scholars are mainly involved in the latter one. This book is a representative sample of their research endeavors.
Multilingualism is a complex phenomenon that can be studied from different perspectives in disciplines such as linguistics, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics and education. The investigation of its manifold forms and language learning is an important field of research in applied linguistics. As multilingualism and linguistic diversity are perceived as increasingly advantageous globally, official policies emerge that aim to implement and increase demands for language learning and linguistic diversity.
Language Learning and Multilingualism is a series that puts consideration of learners’ multilingual experiences, identities and competencies at the heart of studies of language education. The series takes an expansive view of language education and explores language learning across a range of formal and informal learning contexts. The series provides the latest study on language learning and multilingualism, and it is intended for academics, researchers, practitioners to present high-quality, original and state-of-the-art research describing theoretical and empirical aspects contributing to the advancement of our understanding of multilingualism and language education. As part of a commitment to broadening the horizons of the field, it particularly welcomes studies focused on lesser-taught languages, marginalised communities and/or emerging from the Global South.
Language Learning and Multilingualism is a peer-reviewed series that provides a comprehensive survey of multilingualism and language education policy for a global audience. The series is an ideal resource for advanced undergraduates and postgraduate students, and researchers of multilingualism.
