    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.

    Corona pandemic or not, no summer without a new issue of Language Works. With this issue, we present the eighth publication of the journal.

  • Language Works 4(2)
    Vol 4 No 2 (2019)

    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.

    Language and communication are central to many fields of research and study - and with current US President Trump's rhetoric, the point "language matters" becomes more obvious than ever. In Language Works, students are given the opportunity to convey their perspectives on why language matters, how, in what contexts, and give their bids on how it can be researched and documented.

  • Vol 3 No 2 (2018)

    In this issue we can again present five fine articles with very diverse points of departure and very different research interests within the large field we know as language studies. We will be visiting different areas of linguistics students’ interests, and as is starting to become a tradition, we can present both theoretical contributions and applied case studies.

    In this issue we bring three papers with a grammatical focus, one of them with a cross-linguistic perspective to boot. Apart from that, we have papers on essay writing in secondary schools and children’s acquisition of pointing and gesticulation.

    In this issue we can present five fine articles with very diverse points of departure and very different research interests within the large field we know as language studies. We will be visiting different areas of linguistics students’ interests, and is as starting to become a tradition, we can present both theoretical contributions and applied case-studies. If anything sets this issue apart, it is that three of the five contributions are of an experimental nature. Who knows what direction the next issue will take when you have submitted your manuscript to us?

  • Vol 2 No 2 (2017)

    In this issue we can present six fine articles with very diverse points of departure and very different research interests within the large field we know as language studies. We will be visiting different areas of linguistics students’ interests: from interactions on Facebook to interactions in primary school and elderly care; from fundamental theoretical discussions on the nature of online language, to minute details in conversations; and from phonology to corpus linguistics. If we were ever in doubt, the issue shows the breadth of the field of language studies. And if there are areas within the field not yet covered, maybe they will be covered in the next issue when you have sent your manuscript to us.

    We are proud to be able to present the second issues of Language Works. Sprogvidenskabeligt studentertidsskrift and also to be able to reveal that contributions to the next issues have already started arriving in our electronic mailboxes. It looks like the students who had the idea to start a linguistics journal by and for students, hit on a demand. But don’t for a second believe that  Language Works is a private party! We are waiting anxiously for your contribution.

    Language works! – and with this initiative and this journal we want to give the opportunity to many more students to present their linguistic research to each other, to the scientific community and to all interested. Language Works originated among students at Linguistics at Copenhagen University. And it turned out that students at Aarhus University had the same idea.
