Language Works 4(2)


Language works and something is worked out through language. This is shown by the four authors of this issue in different ways and by using different methods. The authors address linguistic topics and demonstrate convincingly how linguistic phenomena affect our ability to gain common understanding and perceptions of the social world, and how meaning and action are accomplished through language. The analyses presented are rooted in and related to socially relevant issues, such as second language teaching, diagnosis of depression, gender, and threats as a criminal act.

Do you have a good idea or a project that could interest others? As a student, you may have an essay that could be turned into an article. As a teacher, you may have supervised or assessed an essay that you think could become a good article.

We are looking for articles of quality, but what you submit does not have to be perfect. We promise that we as editors will help you improve your article if you send it to us. All articles will get a review from an expert with suggestions for changes and improvements. So, it takes work to publish, but this is also a good way of improving your communication competences. We prefer that you write your article in English or Danish/Norwegian/Swedish, but should you wish to write in another language, talk to us about it. 

Contact us if you have a draft, or just an idea, for an article. Contact info and information on the contents and format of articles as well as deadlines can be found on this page.
