Leyland, Christopher – Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language), 2014
Recent years have seen an upsurge in interest in epistemics/knowledge in interaction (e.g., Heritage, 2012a, 2012b; Stivers, Mondada & Steensig, 2011). Insights from such research are now being used by Second Language Acquisition (SLA) researchers yielding valuable insights into teacher-student interaction (e.g., Sert, 2013) and…

Thompson, John Michael – Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language), 2014

This study, using a qualitative descriptive methodology, briefly examines how a group of teachers perceive gesturing after viewing a video performance of an EFL…

Khan, Özlem; Can Daskin, Nilüfer – Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language), 2014
Idioms, because of their cultural and figurative aspects, cannot be readily comprehended and used appropriately; hence, they need to be taught explicitly by means of instructional materials in language classrooms. Knowledge of idioms constitutes an important component of learners' communicative competence (Bachman, 1990) since idioms as part of…

Çelik, Servet; Karaca, Bilal – Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language), 2014
Language education curricula and programs worldwide have begun emphasizing foreign language instruction for learners as young as 5-6 years, particularly in English. Yet, while studies have argued for the benefits of early language instruction, the results of this trend in terms of actual achievement are not clear. For this reason, the researchers…

Fagan, Drew S. – Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language), 2014
That oral teacher feedback influences learning opportunities in classroom settings is found across language learning research, though there remains a lack of empirical evidence concerning how "and" why teachers construct their feedback turns "in situ." The current paper begins to address this by uncovering how one English as a…

De Costa, Peter I. – Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language), 2014
Extending earlier research on the concept of Willingness to Communicate (WTC) (e.g., MacIntyre et al., 1998), this paper tests the WTC concept on a secondary school in Singapore where English is used as a lingua franca. In doing so, a layer of complexity is added to the WTC concept. By focusing on classroom interactions involving one immigrant…

Siegel, Aki – Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language), 2014
English as a lingua franca studies (ELF) from a socio-interactional perspective have illustrated the subtle actions of interlocutors that highlight their "situated identities" (Zimmerman, 1998) in talk-in-interaction. Many of these studies have focused on speakers' identities associated with ethnicity, nationality, or their first or…

Arunsirot, Sudrutai – Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language), 2013
As teaching English as a foreign language, it has become obvious that an average Thai is considered to have very low English proficiency. As a result, Thailand may find herself at a disadvantage because of inferior English skills towards globalization and forming of ASEAN community. Thus, the study is devoted to the exploration of English writing…

Amir, Alia – Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language), 2013
The present study explores how classroom participants invoke a monolingual target-language policy in an English as a foreign language (EFL) classroom, specifically focusing on one method of doing language policy through self-initiated language policing sequences, which I have called "self-policing." Language policing refers to the…

Huth, Thorsten – Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language), 2013
This paper investigates how instances of language use can serve as analytic anchors for insight into interactional development over time. I present a usage-based, longitudinal study of multi-turn sequences underlying telephone openings in order to specify if and to whom "language learning" may be relevantly ascribed. Two successive…

Mirici, Ismail Hakki; Galleano, Rebecca; Torres, Kelly – Novitas-ROYAL (Research on Youth and Language), 2013
Interlocutors who come from different cultural backgrounds often find themselves in need of a shared language in order to successfully communicate. Sometimes the language they share may be the native language of one and the second language of the other, or it may be the lingua franca of both speakers. The purpose of this study is to develop an…

The term "clause" is not only applied to structures which comply with formal prerequisites, containing a subject and a predicate conveyed by a finite verb, but also to such structures which are analysable into clause elements. The verbless clause is a structure containing no verb element at all (either finite or nonfinite), usually…
