Preposition Placement in English: A Usage-Based Approach

This is the first study that empirically investigates preposition placement across all clause types. The study compares first-language (British English) and second-language (Kenyan English) data and will therefore appeal to readers interested in world Englishes. Over 100 authentic corpus examples are discussed in the text, which will appeal to those who want to see 'real data'

Teaching English with Technology (TEwT)

Call Deadline: 15-Nov-2014

Call Information:
Teaching English with Technology (TEwT)
Volume 15, Issue 2 (ISSN 1642-1027)

The Journal of Teaching English with Technology (TEwT) is seeking contributions for its special issue on Technology-mediated task-based English language learning, edited by Anna Franca Plastina, University of Calabria, Italy, to appear in April 2015.

The potential synergy between task-based language learning (TBLL) and the use of technology presents a number of challenges for current English teachers. Nevertheless, "anyone concerned with second language teaching and learning in the 21st century needs to grasp the nature of the unique technology-mediated tasks learners can engage in for language acquisition" (Chapelle, 2001:2).

Abstract proposals of 300-350 words are invited from language practitioners and researchers from all fields related to technology-mediated task-based English language learning. Papers in the form of research reports, case studies, research in progress, or theoretical papers are welcomed.

Contributions may focus on the issue in a number of ways, including but not limited to:
-• Challenges and opportunities of technology-mediated task-based English language learning
-• Innovations in language learning through collaborative digital tasks
- Language learner and teacher roles in technology-enhanced task-based instruction
- Learner behaviour and attitudes towards technology-mediated task-based language instruction
- Learner Empowerment in technological-mediated task-based language learning
- Learning/cognitive styles in digital task-based language learning
- Multimodality in task-based language instruction
- Pedagogical evaluation of web-based tools and mobile devices for language learning tasks
- Pedagogical uses of authentic digital tools/materials for task-based learning
- Productive and participatory learning processes in Pedagogy 2.0 tasks
- Social Media and possible task-based applications in language learning (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, Blogs, Wikis, Forums)
- Teacher Development for technology-mediated task-based instruction
- Technological software applications in ESL/EFL/ESP tasks
- Technological task design for ESL/EFL/ESP courseware and syllabi through the use, for example, of social-constructivist, connectivist, personalized learning approaches
- Technological-mediated task-based language instruction for professional training and practice
- Technological-mediated task-based language learning in digital environments (e.g. MOOCs, Learning Management Systems, Moodle, Poodle, use of Webquests)
- The effectiveness/drawbacks of task-based learner e-portfolios
- The impact of digital language learning policies on task-based instruction.

Abstract proposals should specify the name(s) and affiliation of the contributor(s) and be sent to:

kamila.burz@wp.pl and CC
jarek.krajka@wp.pl; annafranca.plastina@unical.it with
the email subject line "TEWT special issue submission".

Notification of acceptance: 1 December 2014.
The deadline for submitting a completed paper of around 3,000 words of the text proper, without abstract, references, notes and appendices is 1 February 2015.
