Welcome to this edition of Language Works and merry Christmas and happy New Year from the editorial team. This time in Santa’s linguistic gift sack, we have six articles that represent a wide selection of linguistic areas and that show that linguistic analysis can shed light on many very different issues. In this issue, we travel far and wide. For example, we dive into the Danish Health Authority’s corona communication, we enter into the mind itself in an article on mentalization, and in one article, we go all the way to South America. In short, there’s an article for everyone.
