TESL CANADA JOURNAL Call for Papers
2017 Special Issue of TESL Canada Journal - Formulaic Language in English language acquisition and teaching Guest Editor: David Wood, PhD
Formulaic language is a linguistic phenomenon which is basic to human communication. The term refers to multiword units, which may be continuous or not, which have a single meaning or function in communication, and which are probably prefabricated or stored and retrieved mentally as if a single word . Learners struggle with formulaic sequences and, for example, often fail to interpret their meanings accurately, even when given ample contextual clues . While the body of research on formulaic language is large and growing in areas such as psycholinguistic processing, analysis of the role of formulaic language in specific genres and registers of language, and extraction from texts using corpus analysis tools, there are a number of issues yet to be addressed fully in researching the teaching and acquisition of formulaic language. For example, how can we be sure that acquisition of specific formulaic sequences is adequate in causing general language gain? Are there particular strategies which learners can be taught which will help them to be more readily capable of perceiving and integrating formulaic sequences in their own language repertoire without explicit teaching? Similarly, how can we be sure that our instructional techniques have lasting effects? Clearly, the teaching of formulaic language is an area still ripe for investigation by researchers and teachers alike.
This Special Issue of TESL Canada Journal will include papers sharing a focus on the teaching and acquisition of formulaic language, and may present empirical studies or literature reviews with fresh and practical conclusions. Book reviews and practical “In the classroom” short papers will also be included.
To review Author Guidelines and the three categories of Research, In the Classroom, and Perspectives articles, please refer to this
As part of the submission process, authors are required to download the TESL Canada Journal Submission Form on that page and to send it to email@example.com as an attachment, along with their manuscript. Questions regarding this special issue should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: Full manuscripts are due June 1, 2017.

Call for Papers - 40th Annual National ACAL ConferenceDarwin Convention Centre - 13 – 14 September 2017
In 2017 the Australian Council for Adult Literacy celebrates 40 years of actively promoting language, literacy, numeracy, and communication provision and research. This Conference offers an opportunity to also travel back past these forty years of official activism to consider how metaphors of trade, neighbourly contact and mobility shape understandings of adult basic education, foundation skills and the everyday ‘literacies’ of workplaces, academic institutions and communities.
Articles wanted for ETAS
ETAS, the English teachers Association of Switzerland, is inviting contributions from New Zealand ESOL teachers for their next international issue of the ETASJ Journal, to be published in 2017.
This is a quarterly publication, and one issue each year is an international collaboration. For example in 2016 ETAS is collaborating with Brazil, to mark the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.
The journal is practical in nature rather than academic/theoretical (think along the lines of ET Professional) but any aspect of New Zealand education would be interesting for our Swiss colleagues.
This is a great opportunity for you to be published in Europe, so put on your thinking hats, sharpen your quills, and get writing!
Contributions and queries should in the first instance be sent to me at: email@example.com (NB no 'd') as soon as possible. I will then forward material to the editors in Switzerland.
I look forward to reading your contributions!

TESOL Press has a call for abstracts for the following books from the Putting Research into Practice Series:
Putting Research into Practice: Middle School Abstracts due: Rolling deadline Volume Editors: Holly Hansen-Thomas (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Kristen Lindahl (email@example.com)
Putting Research into Practice: High School Abstracts due: Rolling deadline Volume Editors: Holly Hansen-Thomas (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Mary Amanda Stewart (email@example.com)
Putting Research into Practice: English as a Foreign Language Abstracts due: Rolling deadline Volume Editor: Lucilla Lopriore (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Scope and Purpose The main goal of the series is to create new spaces for practitioner knowledge and engagement with TESOL research. As a professional community, we are interested in highlighting how TESOL practitioners direct their own professional learning through reading, questioning, interpreting and adapting research findings to and in their own contexts. The result will be a very accessible and rich collection that adds to the overall knowledge base while also validating the critical role teachers play in TESOL’s overall mission to improve learning and teaching. The series will recast the great amount of TESOL material in TESOL Journal, TESOL Quarterly, Essential Teacher and other TESOL Press publications such as the English Language Teaching in Context series.
There will be four books in the series overall, and each book will have a similar format. The books will be approximately 150-180 pages and will include 10-12 chapters dedicated to the content areas of mathematics, science, social studies, and English language arts, in Elementary, Middle School, and High School levels. There will also be a volume devoted to English as a Foreign Language, and it will be divided into three parts, primary, secondary, and higher education. Each volume will be foregrounded with an introductory chapter and will close with a concluding chapter. The series will be published in print, but lesson plans and other supplementary materials will be available for download on a website dedicated to the series.
Audience This series of books will be read by a wide range of participants in the TESOL community, including ESL/EFL teachers, content area teachers, program administrators, etc. Additionally, they could be used as course readings for teacher education programs and professional development of teachers of ELLs.
Contributors Experienced, novice, and nonnative English speaking teachers, administrators, researchers, and other educational professionals are encouraged to contribute to this series. The chapters will speak to the various educational profiles of students in diverse regions.
Abstract Submission • Abstracts of 400-500 words (excluding references) must be submitted via email to the volume editor(s) • The abstract must include the complete citation of the original TESOL publication that inspired the lesson, an overview of the chapter, the targeted concept or research finding to be illustrated, and a brief description of the lesson and its the context

• 2-4 page synopsis of the original research article/chapter, including the original citation.
• 1-2 page rationale for choosing the research and creating a lesson based on the research.
• A clearly written lesson plan that allows readers to “see, hear, be” in the context and follow the development of the lesson as it unfolds.

New Journal: Journal of Language and Discrimination (JLD)
The new Journal of Language and Discrimination will be launched in 2017 with Equinox.
Discrimination is an important research topic in a large number of diverse but related fields, including linguistics, law, anthropology, sociology and psychology. This complex, multidisciplinary research topic often has a strong focus and concern with language. The new Journal of Language and Discrimination aims to bring together a multidisciplinary synergy of approaches on discrimination as a complex linguistic and non-linguistic phenomenon. In bringing together different research strands that focus on discrimination, the journal hopes to serve as a catalyst for innovation and play a pivotal role in establishing interdisciplinary language and discrimination research worldwide.
The editors of JLAD invite papers that reflect the diversity of possible approaches in relation to language and discrimination. The aim is to include work with a wide array of approaches that reflect the diversity and recent developments of research on language and discrimination.
Topics may include but are not limited to:
- Reflections on the research that has been done on discrimination in your field, and the direction in which research could or should develop
- Discussions on broadening the field versus constraining academic subject areas
- Consideration of definitions of discrimination, and the benefits and disadvantages of using this term for our research
- Theoretical and methodological considerations in interdisciplinary research
- Case studies from different fields that relate to language and discrimination
- Qualitative analyses on language and discrimination
