"I am going to looks like stupid": language commentary & correction in spoken ELF

"I am going to looks like stupid": language commentary & correction in spoken ELF | TELT | Scoop.it

Ray Carey:

 

"When I introduced the PhD thesis of ELFA project member Niina Hynninen (read the intro here), I outlined some considerations for studying language regulation when English is spoken as a lingua franca.

 

[In this post: ] I go deeper into her data and findings on four areas of language regulation. First, what kind of overt comments do ELF users make on the quality of their/others’ English? Second, what kind of explicit corrections are made in their talk? Then I move on to more subtle forms of language regulation: instances where reformulations are embedded in a second speaker’s utterance (“embedded repairs”) and reformulations involving third-party intervention (“mediation”)."

Key concepts in ELT: Taking stock (Graham Hall)

Free (limited) access to this ELT article:

 

This article identifies patterns and trends within ‘Key Concepts in ELT’, both since the inception of the feature in ELT Journal in 1993 and during the 17 years of the current editorship. After outlining the aims of the series, the article identifies key themes that have emerged over time, exploring the links between ‘Key Concepts’ pieces and the trends and developments in ELT more generally. It finds that although earlier articles tended to focus on ‘teaching’, ‘learning’, and ‘language’, more recent pieces have examined issues surrounding ‘teachers’, ‘learners’, and the ‘social context’ of ELT. The article then considers the ‘reach’, readership, and potential relevance of ‘Key Concepts’ to debates and practices within ELT, drawing upon publisher records of ELT Journal’s most accessed articles online and most cited articles, and concludes with a discussion of possible future directions for the series.

Dang! I can't change the link without making a new post, so I've just added it above. Your site is great - hope you don't mind the deeper links - I want to direct teachers to specific parts of your really rich collection, but I'm guessing they'll explore on their own anyway :-)
