Brown, Kara D. – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
This article explores policy and pedagogical pliability as strategies for perpetuating and protecting regional languages, like Võro, in the twenty-first century.

Strand, Thea R. – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
In rural Valdres, Norway, the traditional regional dialect, called Valdresmål, has become an important resource for popular style and local development projects.

Perrino, Sabina – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
In this article, I explore how language revitalization initiatives are rescaled as part of a local, historical and sociocultural revitalization project in which ethnonationalist aspirations emerge in Northeastern Italy's Veneto region. Through an analysis of political emblems, textual artifacts, and speech participants' stories, I examine how the…

Sallabank, Julia – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
The Bailiwick of Guernsey is a small, semi-autonomous archipelago in the English Channel. Although it is a British Crown dependency and part of the British Isles, it has its own parliament and does not belong to the United Kingdom or the European Union. This unusual geopolitical situation means that the nation-state has little relevance. It is…

Leone-Pizzighella, Andrea – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
In Verona, Northern Italy, a music group is revalorizing a local "dialetto" ('dialect') by putting it to music. By both reviving hundred-year old songs and writing their own music and lyrics, they are widening the cultural reach that this language has and they are finding contemporary ways for people to engage with it. Unlike political…

Kirsch, Griseldis – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
In a market dominated by Hollywood, it is easy to overlook that the number of films (and televised productions) which are not in English is actually by far greater than those in English. However, although some non-English language film industries are vast, only a comparatively small number of productions are screened outside of their country of…

This theoretical paper adopts the point of view of the audience of subtitled films and outlines a theory of subtitles as communicative agents within the participation structures of film reception. Based on examples from three Swiss fiction films -- "Heidi" (2015), "Heimatland" (2015) and "Der Goalie bin ig" (2014) --…

Ghia, Elisa – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
In original and dubbed film dialogue, direct questions are a means to depict interpersonal relationships on screen. In particular, pragmatic questions (i.e. non-questioning, rhetorical interrogatives) are frequently employed to mark alignment among interactants, in the form of affiliative and disaffiliative interrogatives, respectively expressing…

Pavesi, Maria; Formentelli, Maicol – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
Insults are prototypical means to express impoliteness in social interactions. In film they are prime ways of staging conflict or jocular abuse, reflecting everyday communicative practices while contributing to the emotionality of dialogue, characterisation and plot advancement. Both original and dubbed films offer a privileged perspective to…

Ranzato, Irene – Multilingua: Journal of Cross-Cultural and Interlanguage Communication, 2019
The codification of propriety -- talking with a 'proper' accent -- is recorded in audiovisual texts so that cross-cultural interaction between social groups is not left to verbal dialogue alone but to more or less accurate visual cues and to paralinguistic as well as prosodic information. This chapter will examine scenes from various audiovisual…

The study of the legislation in relation to contexts of social and institutional use shows how this legal framework is not sufficient to change Catalan from being a minoritized…
