This book explores implications for applied linguistics of recent developments in technologies used in second language teaching and assessment, language analysis, and language use. Focusing primarily on English language learning, the book identifies significant areas of interplay between technology and applied linguistics, and it explores current perspectives on perennial questions such as how theory and research on second language acquisition can help to inform technology-based language learning practices, how the multifaceted learning accomplished through technology can be evaluated, and how theoretical perspectives can offer insight on data obtained from research on interaction with and through technology. The book illustrates how the interplay between technology and applied linguistics can amplify and expand applied linguists’ understanding of fundamental issues in the field. Through discussion of computer-assisted approaches for investigating second language learning tasks and assessment, it illustrates how technology can be used as a tool for applied linguistics research.


Movimiento y emoción en la intersubjetividad, la conciencia y el lenguaje


Moving Ourselves, Moving Others : Motion and Emotion in Intersubjectivity, Consciousness and Language. [e-Book]  Amsterdam, John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2012

Texto completo


The close relationship between motion (bodily movement) and emotion (feelings) is not an etymological coincidence. While moving ourselves, we move others; in observing others move – we are moved ourselves. The fundamentally interpersonal nature of mind and language has recently received due attention, but the key role of (e)motion in this context has remained something of a blind spot. The present book rectifies this gap by gathering contributions from leading philosophers, psychologists and linguists working in the area. Framed by an introducing prologue and a summarizing epilogue the volume elaborates a dynamical, active view of emotion, along with an affect-laden view of motion – and explores their significance for consciousness, intersubjectivity, and language. As such, it contributes to the emerging interdisciplinary field of mind science, transcending hitherto dominant computationalist and cognitivist approaches.

Nuevas perspectivas en la historia de la interpretación.


New Insights in the History of Interpreting. [e-Book]  Amsterdam, John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2016.

Texto completo


Who mediated intercultural exchanges in 9th-century East Asia or in early voyages to the Americas? Did the Soviets or the Americans invent simultaneous interpreting equipment? How did the US government train its first Chinese interpreters? Bringing together papers from an international symposium held at Rikkyo University in 2014 along with two select pieces, this volume pursues such questions in an exploration of the practice of interpreting, the recruitment of interpreters, and the challenges interpreters have faced in diplomacy, colonization, religion, war, and occupation. It also introduces innovative use of photography, artifacts, personal journals, and fiction as tools for the historical study of interpreters and interpreting. Targeted at practitioners, scholars, and students of interpreting, translation, and history, the new insights presented aim to spark discussion and research on the vital roles interpreters have played in intercultural communication through history.

La capacité d’écrire est au centre du travail universitaire. Mais comment se manifeste-t-elle dans les écrits produits au début des études supérieures ? Comment analyser les textes des étudiants entrant à l’université ? Et à l’époque de la mondialisation, comment lire des textes produits dans différents contextes culturels sans se réfugier dans des comparaisons réductrices ?

Cet ouvrage s’ouvre par une présentation du cadre théorique et des pratiques de l’enseignement de l’écrit au début des études supérieures aux États-unis et en France, question devenue particulièrement cruciale en France depuis 2007 avec la mise en œuvre de la loi LRU, dite loi Pécresse, qui attire l’attention sur les enjeux des premières expériences des étudiants entrant à l’université.

Ce tour d’horizon est suivi de l’analyse interprétative de quelques textes écrits en première année universitaire dans les deux pays. Les différences culturelles majeures sont repérées et on montre comment celles-ci s’ancrent dans les différences entre les exigences institutionnelles. Ces mêmes textes sont ensuite soumis à une lecture convoquant différentes approches analytiques – littéraire, linguistique et relevant de la composition theory nord-américaine – et s’attachant à repérer les mouvements textuels de reprise-modification au cœur du fonctionnement des textes.

L’auteur constate à travers cette lecture que ce qui semble être « différence » culturelle ou institutionnelle dans l’écrit académique se révèle moins importante que ce qui est partagé. Cela permet de poser l’existence d’un écrit servant, dans le cadre des apprentissages universitaires, à négocier les exigences académiques au sein de cultures, d’institutions, voire de disciplines différentes.

Cet ouvrage est destiné aux chercheurs en sciences du langage et en didactique de l’écrit, ainsi qu’à tous ceux qui s’intéressent au fonctionnement du langage et à l’interaction entre les textes et le lecteur.

Elementos de Sintaxis Estructural


Tesnière, L. (2015). [e-Book]  Elements of Structural Syntax. Amsterdan, John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2015

Texto completo


This volume is now finally available in English, sixty years after the death of its author, Lucien Tesnière. It has been translated from the French original into German, Spanish, Italian, and Russian, and now at long last into English as well. The volume contains a comprehensive approach to the syntax of natural languages, an approach that is foundational for an entire stream in the modern study of syntax and grammar. This stream is known today as dependency grammar (DG). Drawing examples from dozens of languages, many of which he was proficient in, Tesnière presents insightful analyses of numerous phenomena of syntax. Among the highlights are the concepts of valency and head-initial vs. head-final languages. These concepts are now taken for granted by most modern theories of syntax, even by phrase structure grammars, which represent, in a sense, the opposite sort of approach to syntax from what Tesnière was advocating.

El idioma holandés: contactos lingüísticos en los Países Bajos occidentales antes de 1200


Michiel de, V. [e-Book]  The Dawn of Dutch. Language contact in the Western Low Countries before 1200. Amsterdam, John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2017.

Texto completo


The Low Countries are famous for their radically changing landscape over the last 1,000 years. Like the landscape, the linguistic situation has also undergone major changes. In Holland, an early form of Frisian was spoken until, very roughly, 1100, and in parts of North Holland it disappeared even later. The hunt for traces of Frisian or Ingvaeonic in the dialects of the western Low Countries has been going on for around 150 years, but a synthesis of the available evidence has never appeared. The main aim of this book is to fill that gap. It follows the lead of many recent studies on the nature and effects of language contact situations in the past. The topic is approached from two different angles: Dutch dialectology, in all its geographic and diachronic variation, and comparative Germanic linguistics. In the end, the minute details and the bigger picture merge into one possible account of the early and high medieval processes that determined the make-up of western Dutch.

Ciberpragmática: Comunicación a través de Internet en contexto


Cyberpragmatics : Internet-mediated Communication In Context. Amsterdan, John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2011

Texto completo


Cyberpragmatics is an analysis of Internet-mediated communication from the perspective of cognitive pragmatics. It addresses a whole range of interactions that can be found on the Net: the web page, chat rooms, instant messaging, social networking sites, 3D virtual worlds, blogs, videoconference, e-mail, Twitter, etc. Of special interest is the role of intentions and the quality of interpretations when these Internet-mediated interactions take place, which is often affected by the textual properties of the medium. The book also analyses the pragmatic implications of transferring offline discourses (e.g. printed paper, advertisements) to the screen-framed space of the Net. And although the main framework is cognitive pragmatics, the book also draws from other theories and models in order to build up a better picture of what really happens when people communicate on the Net.

 Lingüística culinaria: el especial del chef



Culinary Linguistics : The Chef’s Special.  [e-Book]  Amsterdam, John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2013.

Texto completo


Language and food are universal to humankind. Language accomplishes more than a pure exchange of information, and food caters for more than mere subsistence. Both represent crucial sites for socialization, identity construction, and the everyday fabrication and perception of the world as a meaningful, orderly place. This volume contains an introduction to the study of food and an extensive overview of the literature focusing on its role in interplay with language. It is the only publication fathoming the field of food and food-related studies from a linguistic perspective. The research articles assembled here encompass a number of linguistic fields, ranging from historical and ethnographic approaches to literary studies, the teaching of English as a foreign language, psycholinguistics, and the study of computer-mediated communication, making this volume compulsory reading for anyone interested in genres of food discourse and the linguistic connection between food and culture.

Peter, B., B. Finn, et al. [e-Book]  Creole Studies – Phylogenetic Approaches. Amsterdam, John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2017

Texto completo


This book launches a new approach to creole studies founded on phylogenetic network analysis. Phylogenetic approaches offer new visualisation techniques and insights into the relationships between creoles and non-creoles, creoles and other contact varieties, and between creoles and lexifier languages. With evidence from creole languages in Africa, Asia, the Americas, and the Pacific, the book provides new perspectives on creole typology, cross-creole comparisons, and creole semantics. The book offers an introduction for newcomers to the fields of creole studies and phylogenetic analysis. Using these methods to analyse a variety of linguistic features, both structural and semantic, the book then turns to explore old and new questions and problems in creole studies. Original case studies explore the differences and similarities between creoles, and propose solutions to the problems of how to classify creoles and how they formed and developed. The book provides a fascinating glimpse into the unity and heterogeneity of creoles and the areal influences on their development. It also provides metalinguistic discussions of the “creole” concept from different perspectives. Finally, the book reflects critically on the findings and methods, and sets new agendas for future studies. Creole Studies has been written for a broad readership of scholars and students in the fields of contact linguistics, biolinguistics, sociolinguistics, language typology, and semantics.

Conectar la gramaticalización


Nørgård-Sørensen, J., L. Heltoft, et al. (2011). [e-Book]  Connecting Grammaticalisation. Amsterdam, John Benjamins Publishing Company, 2011

Texto completo


This monograph presents a view on grammaticalisation radically different from standard views centering around the cline of grammaticality. Grammar is seen as a complex sign system, and, as a consequence, grammatical change always comprises semantic change. What unites morphology, word order, constructional syntax and other grammatical subsystems is their paradigmatic organisation. The traditional concept of an inflexional paradigm is generalised as the structuring principle of grammar. Grammatical change involves paradigmatic restructuring, and in the process of grammatical change morphological, topological and constructional paradigms often connect to form complex paradigms. The book introduces the concept of connecting grammaticalisation to describe the formation, restructuring and dismantling of such complex paradigms. Drawing primarily on data from Germanic, Romance and Slavic languages, the book offers both a broad general discussion of theoretical issues and three case studies.
