ReCALL is the journal of the European Association for Computer Assisted Language Learning (EUROCALL). It seeks to fulfil the stated aims of EUROCALL as a whole, i.e. to encourage the use of technology for the learning and teaching of languages and cultures, and especially the promotion and dissemination of innovative research and practice in areas relating to CALL including, but not limited to: Applied Linguistics, Corpus Linguistics, Digital Pedagogy, Digital Literacies, Computer-Mediated Communication, Learning Analytics, Second Language Acquisition, and Educational Science. The journal publishes research articles that report on empirical studies (quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods); provide rigorous meta-analyses or other syntheses or surveys; or contribute to theoretical, epistemological or methodological debates. Typical subjects for submissions include foreign or second language learning and development in technology-enhanced learning environments; theoretical debate and practical applications at developmental stage; evaluative studies of the potential of technological advances in the delivery of language learning materials and enactment of language learning activities; and discussions of policy and strategy at institutional and discipline levels.

  • How a #CheekyNandos became more acceptable
  • 03 August 2020, Dan Iredale
  • By Laura R. Bailey (University of Kent) and Mercedes Durham (Cardiff University) Our recent article, A cheeky investigation: Tracking the semantic change of cheeky from monkeys to wines describes the behaviour of cheeky in British and American English. Introduction For Mercedes, growing up in French-speaking Switzerland but speaking American English at home meant having to ‘relearn’ English at school with her classmates. They were learning British English, which, for Mercedes, often led to confusion. Confusion sometimes turned into hilarity, particularly the time she was confronted with a picture of a dog stealing sausages and the exclamation ‘What a cheeky dog!’. Cheeky, for people or dogs, just wasn’t in her vocabulary. Fast forward a couple decades when she moved to the UK, and found that . . . → Read More: How a #CheekyNandos became more acceptable...
  • The Karen Stereotype
  • 28 July 2020, Dan Iredale
  • written by Karen Stollznow, Griffith University, Queensland Karen is a first name, in fact, it’s my first name, but online, “Karen” has evolved to mean so much more than just a name. In recent years, “Karen” has also become a negative stereotype, a meme, and an insulting epithet. The colloquial meaning of “Karen” is multi-faceted and complicated. The term typically refers to a middle-class, middle-aged white woman who is obnoxious and entitled in her behavior, and she is often racist. She is angry, aggressive, and a bully. Her catch-cry is demanding to “Speak to the manager” of an establishment over the slightest inconvenience. In some versions she even wears a stereotypical hairstyle. Her complaints are selfish and petty. For example, Cathy Hill, a patron . . . → Read More: The Karen Stereotype...
  • SSLA introduces a new Methods Forum
  • 28 July 2020, Dan Iredale
  • Shortly to be announced in an editorial in the Fall issue of Studies in Second Language Acquisition Why methods? SLA has always been and remains a dynamic discipline that employs an increasingly wide range of methodological techniques. More recently, however, large numbers of scholars in the field began to take on research methodology as an explicit and even empirical focus of their work (see overview by Gass, Loewen, & Plonsky, 2020). What’s new? SSLA is now taking another step to further the field’s methodological literacy by inviting authors to submit manuscripts to the Methods Forum. Articles of this type can take a number of different forms as long as the focus is on research methods as applied to SLA. Manuscripts submitted to the Methods Forum can . . . → Read More: SSLA introduces a new Methods Forum...
