Studies in Honour of Giuseppina Cortese
Edited By Sandra Campagna, Elana Ochse, Virginia Pulcini and Martin Solly
The sections in the volume are designed as main threads of a new investigation into ‘languaging’. The first, entitled Languaging Awareness, deals with recent findings in applied linguistics, exploring key topics in language acquisition, language learning and teaching and the changing role of the media. The second section, Languaging Identity, prioritizes the theme of the construction of identity in text and talk within a linguistic and languaging framework. The third section, Languaging Community, explores the notion of community, of the lifeworld and the textworld emanating from a variety of domains, closely inspecting contemporary events and showing, on a continuum with Cortese’s approach, how memory of the past gives depth of meaning to a discourse analysis that is geared to linguistic and textual awareness.
The Treatment of Lexical Collocations in English Collocations Dictionaries and Learners’ Dictionaries: A Languaging Perspective
Mastering collocations is a marker of communicative competence. Knowing which words work together – and which do not, one might add (Nuccorini 2003), as also Marello (2014) has recently highlighted – is necessary for (advanced) learners to express meaning in a fluent and natural way. To this end, lexical collocations, as transparent, more or less restricted word combinations often represent a problematic issue for learners of a foreign language, especially because of the different linguistic ways languages carve and express knowledge and common experience.1
