In this era of globalisation, the use of interpreters is becoming increasingly important in business meetings and negotiations, government and non-government organisations, health care and public service in general.
This book focuses specifically on the involvement of interpreters in mental health sessions. It offers a theoretical foundation to aid the understanding of the role-issues at stake for both interpreters and therapists in this kind of dialogue. In addition to this, the study relies on the detailed analysis of a corpus of videotaped therapy sessions. The theoretical foundation is thus linked to what actually takes place in this type of talk. Conclusions are then drawn about the feasibility and desirability of certain discussion techniques.
Dialogue Interpreting in Mental Health offers insight into the processes at work when two people talk with the help of an interpreter and will be of value to linguists specialising in intercultural communication, health care professionals, interpreters and anyone working in multilingual situations who already uses or is planning to use an interpreter.

This handbook is unique in its focus on bilingual theories, issues on the teaching of bilinguals, bilingual policies abroad, and current research on bilinguals as all of this related in some way to the Spanish-speaking world. There is currently no other book like it available, despite the growing number of courses teaching Spanish Bilingualism. It is anticipated that this new handbook will be of great interest to linguists, sociolinguists, language acquisitionists, as well as teachers who deal with topics relating to bilingualism as it relates to Spanish speakers around the world. Though work has been done looking at bilingualism and multilingualism, this book provides a valuable addition that deals with an area where a comprehensive work such as this is indeed lacking.

This article explores the grammar of stance in the letters produced by a network of early eighteenth-century English writers associated with the essayist and diplomat, Joseph Addison. I conduct a corpus linguistic analysis of the relative occurrence of modal auxiliaries and lexically explicit stance expressions with the first person subject to explore the grammatical realization of speaker involvement in epistolary discourse. Examination of the kinds of grammatical constructions favored by the stance expressions indicate that verbs like think, hope, and believe appear to favor zero-marked complement clauses with first person subjects, whereas know favors wh-complement clauses. Close analysis reveals that writers deploy stance expressions in conventional as well as idiosyncratic ways in epistolary discourse.
