Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Computer-mediated Discourse and Interaction in Second and Foreign Language Learning and Teaching
Guest Editors
Lawrence Williams and Rémi A. van Compernolle

This issue contains:

Editorial
This special issue highlights discourse and interaction in computer-mediated communication (CMC) language learning environments. Our decision to focus on this area was motivated by a desire to promote research that demonstrates and explores close analysis of discourse and the moment-by-moment processes involved in interpersonal communication. Although a growing amount of this type of research already exists, this branch of technology-enhanced language learning remains relatively unexplored because only recently, with the expansion of bandwidth, has communication networks in certain parts of the world become more possible and accessible. The articles in this special issue confirm that ‘the medium of communication does not appear to impair interaction, but rather seems to create a new environment with different features for the exchange and creation of information (e.g., Spears & Lea, 1994; Walther et al., 1994)’ (Salaberry, 2000, p. 33)….
