Special Issue

Technology in Applied Linguistics


Guest Editor

Marina Dodigovic, University of La Rioja, Spain

Stephen Jeaco, Xi’an Jiaotong Liverpool University, China


Aims and Scopes

Language and technology have gone hand in hand since time immemorial, including initially the writing tools, and later audio and video recording devices, culminating in digital technologies toward the end of the 20th century. In the 21st century, digital technologies have become ubiquitous, and many different types have been used to enhance or facilitate language teaching, learning, assessment, research or simply to bridge communication gaps. This issue endeavours to capture the plethora of such technologies in applied linguistics, using a variety of approaches which range from top-down institutional efforts to bottom-up student-led grass-roots movements. The editors would therefore like to invite contributions to technology-related topics, including but not restricted to the following:

  • Mobile learning
  • Web-based learning
  • Virtual learning environments
  • Gaming
  • Speech recognition systems
  • Virtual reality
  • Conferencing tools
  • Plagiarism detection
  • Grammar, style and spell-checkers
  • Concordancing
  • Vocabulary profilers
  • Automated translation
