ABSTRACTCosta Rica attracts one of the highest numbers of migrants per capita in Latin America and it is one of the main destinations for inter-regional migrants. The impact of growing numbers of long-term migrants with a very different socio-economic (and often also linguistic) profile from the majority of local inhabitants is perceptible across various commercial sectors. Previous research has observed an increasing ‘Englishization’ of the linguistic landscape in selected socially privileged l...

It investigates three stages of students' engagement with sources: understanding source-use expectations, identifying appropriate sources, and incorporating content from source texts into assignment writing.

Abstract Collocation networks provide important information on the semantic relatedness of linguistic features and their co-texts. Previous studies on collocations have largely been limited to the descriptive examination of particular lexical items or phrases, while the statistical analysis of collocational relationships of phrases performing similar functions remains underexplored. This study investigates the collocation networks of stance phrases in cross-disciplinary academic discourse from a...

Costa Rica officially became a multi-ethnic, pluricultural nation in 2015. Representatives from the principal minorities, in particular Afro-Costa Ricans and indigenous peoples, played an important role in contesting the erstwhile dominant narrative of Costa Rican’s white European settler heritage. One of the intended consequences of the constitutional amendment was to ensure greater salience of ethnic minorities in public policy and social life. This study investigates the public display of lin...

Abstract This study examines the applicability of the schematic structure of research article (RA) discussion sections in the field of applied linguistics proposed by Yang and Allison (2003), and the organizational features of moves, and the distribution of metadiscourse markers across moves. The analysis is based on a corpus of 20 RAs from two high-profile journals in applied linguistics. Findings from the current study have shown that this schematic structure can be applied to a different data...

Abstract This study investigates the textual colligation of stance phrases at the levels of sentence, paragraph and text in empirical research articles from agriculture and economics. We extracted the textual positions of stance phrases with the software Wordskew (Barlow, 2016) in two purpose-built corpora of around three million tokens. The results show that stance phrases display similar distribution patterns in the two disciplinary corpora; however, we found significant differences with respe...

Two intact classes of Grade 3 Turkish learners participated. Recorded communicative exercises provided asynchronous speaking practice homework with the classroom teacher as the children's interlocutor, while the control group received traditional paper-b...

Abstract This study investigates how 32 Turkish elementary and intermediate-level EFL university students respond to metalinguistic feedback on the first draft of a timed writing assessment. Correction codes were used to indicate problematic linguistic features of each student's text, and students redrafted the text with the assistance of a correction code key (containing model sentences) and a dictionary. Data were compiled through think-aloud protocols, two versions of students' drafted texts,...
