Davidson, Peter; Coombe, Christine – Arab Journal of Applied Linguistics, 2019
Language assessment literacy (LAL) has become a critical topic in English language teaching since the late 1990s. Unfortunately, this is mainly due to the fact that so many English language teachers are not assessment literate. In other words, many English language teachers lack the knowledge and skills to write good language tests, evaluate the…

Alabar, Rahaf – Arab Journal of Applied Linguistics, 2019
The concept of the "native speaker" (NS) remains a constant interest in the field of language pedagogy due to the need the field has for models, goals and norms (Davies, 2003, p. 1). On the other hand, some other researchers such as Byram (1997) in his model of intercultural competence (ICC) and Cook (2012) in his model of…

Cosenza, Luana; Masillo, Paola – Arab Journal of Applied Linguistics, 2019
Our paper aims at analysing the linguistic "features" produced by Arabic learners of Italian as a foreign language. There are published studies of common errors for Arab students of Italian (Della Puppa, 2006; Giacalone Ramat et al., 2001). However, this study introduces the standardized language assessment, namely the CILS test of…

Rezoug, Fares; Vincent, Benet – Arab Journal of Applied Linguistics, 2018
Although lexical bundles (LBs) have attracted considerable attention in applied linguistics, their variation by discipline is an under-researched area, particularly with regard to Master's dissertations. This paper explores the frequency, structure, and function of four-word bundles used in Electrical and Electronic Engineering Master's…

Sorour, Nourhan – Arab Journal of Applied Linguistics, 2018
Proficiency in second language (L2) has traditionally been linked to grammatical competence. However, as opposed to common misconceptions about language learning, to be proficient in a second language does not only entail the ability to produce grammatically correct sentences, but it also entails the ability to use this language appropriately. The…

Abdesslem, Habib; Costello, Hassan – Arab Journal of Applied Linguistics, 2018
This paper draws an analogy between the histories of traditional grammars and Swales' rhetorical model for Research Papers Introductions. It argues that though core grammar rules for the sentence and core rhetorical patterns for the Introduction have originated from description and have risen to the status of prescription, the study of language…

Qasem, Fawaz; Sircar, Shruti – Arab Journal of Applied Linguistics, 2017
The paper shows that children acquiring Yemeni Ibbi Arabic4 (henceforth referred to as YIA) go through a stage equivalent to the Root Infinitive (RI) stage found in non-null subject languages in spite of the fact that YIA is a null subject and does not have an infinitive construction. Spontaneous speech of two YIA children (2;1-2;11) showed…

Al-Sulaihim, N.; Marinis, T. – Arab Journal of Applied Linguistics, 2017
A large body of research to date has focused on the link between phonological awareness (PA), emergent literacy, and reading success. The bulk of research on the relationship between PA and literacy has been conducted on children who speak English and European languages. It is unclear, however, how this relationship presents itself in Arabic…
