10plus1’s second issue focuses on Contact Linguistics. Research within this field is highly diverse as it encompasses a whole range of phenomena related to language contact and investigates them from different theoretical and methodological angles. Topics include changes in one or more of the languages involved in a contact situation, for example through borrowing (e.g., Thomason/Everett 2005), language creation (e.g., Schröder/Rudd fc.), or language death (e.g., Romaine 2013), but also individual and societal bi-/multilingualism and the structural and sociolinguistic implications of these phenomena (e.g., Fuller 2012). Research may be diachronic (e.g., Schulte fc.) or synchronic (e.g., Migge 2015), deal with individual languages or multiple languages (Schneider 2003), and can consider living, endangered, or extinct languages.

Issue #2 welcomes contributions of all formats (see page 1) situated within the broad frame of Contact Linguistics. Papers may deal with specific aspects, or give an overview of a broader field of research. We also invite contributions focusing on theoretical and/or methodological issues.

Marion Schulte is Akademische Rätin at Bielefeld University. She studied English and Music at the universities of Siegen and Maynooth before joining Bielefeld University, where she received her doctorate for a thesis on the semantics of derivational morphology. Her research interests include morphology, language change, and sociophonetics. She is currently working on the semantic integration of borrowed morphology into English as well as the sociophonetics of Irish English.

10plus1_Call for Contributions_Issue_1

10plus1’s first issue (to appear in Autumn 2015) is entitled Media Linguistics and thereby addresses a relatively young but rapidly evolving linguistic sub-discipline. The research focus of Media Linguistics lies in the field of mass media communication (Burger & Luginbühl 2014; Perrin 2011). Media Linguistic studies investigate a broad range of topics from journalistic genres such as TV news programmes (e.g. Luginbühl 2014) to research on computer-mediated communication (e.g. Schildhauer 2014) to mediated political discourse (e.g. Klemm 2014), advertising (e.g. Stöckl 2013), humour in the media (e.g. Brock 2004) and even textbook research (e.g. Pflaeging/Brock forthc.). As this cursory glance shows, Media Linguistics does not confine itself to verbal communication but commits itself to a multimodal approach, including several modes and sub-modes (such as image, sound, film, gesture, etc.) in a linguistic analysis.

Issue #1 welcomes contributions of all formats situated within this broad frame of Media Linguistics. Papers may deal with specific aspects, or give an overview of a broader field of research. We also invite contributions focussing on theoretical and/or methodological issues.

Issue #1

Media Linguistics will be opened by Martin Luginbühl (Neuchâtel).

Issue #2

Contact Linguistics will be edited by Marion Schulte and opened
by Anne Schröder (Bielefeld). (CforC to follow soon.)
