Although the relationship between these two variables has been addressed in the literature, scant attention has been given to how L2 language proficiency is related to both constructs in EFL contexts. Therefore, the present quantitative study gathered questionnaire data to characterize the relationship between the LLSs, SE perceptions, and L2 language proficiency of 47 adult EFL learners at a Chilean university. Results revealed significant strong correlations between speaking SE and cognitive strategies, as well as between writing SE and memory strategies. Weak but significant correlations were found between language proficiency and receptive skills (listening and writing SE). Pedagogical implications refer to the ways in which EFL teachers can increase their learners’ use of metacognitive strategies and increase their SE.</p> Marco Cancino, Renata Arenas, Camilo Herrera Copyright (c) 2022 Revista de Lingüística y Lenguas Aplicadas https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16122 Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200 DOCUTERM: terminological uses documentation model http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16249 <p>This article presents the model of terminographic representation as a document of terminological uses on which we have been working on for some time and which has led to the recent creation of the scientific patent DOCUTERM. Following the explanation of its hypothesis and its most significant methodological aspects, the different fields of the documentary file and the novel explanatory procedure that makes up the structure of this model, as well as the different scientific contributions of this intellectual property, are detailed through the analysis of a practical case.</p> Miguel Casas Gómez Copyright (c) 2022 Revista de Lingüística y Lenguas Aplicadas https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16249 Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200 "(Im)polite strategies in telecinematic discourse: irony and sarcasm in the TV series "Vis a Vis" http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16755 <p>This paper addresses the use of the annotations and descriptions in the scripts of a Spanish television series as<br />metapragmatic labels that classify (im)polite instances as ironic or sarcastic. Fictional data are proposed as a corpus that allows a first-order approach to the lay understanding and evaluation of (im)polite utterances as ironic or sarcastic, as the scriptwriters use them in the scripts when addressing the production crew. Our qualitative analysis allows us to focus on the main (im)polite strategies marked as ironic or sarcastic in the corpus and shows a substantial similiarity in the use of both labels.</p> Luisa Chierichetti Copyright (c) 2022 Revista de Lingüística y Lenguas Aplicadas https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16755 Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Loanword neology: the morphological adaptation of gender in lexical neologisms borrowed from English http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16758 <p>In this paper our intention is to offer new guidelines to help outline the criteria used to assign gender to words borrowed from other languages in which this grammatical category does not exist. To this end, we have analysed 631 different contexts containing substantive nouns in English recently incorporated into Spanish, which have not been orthographically adapted to the language. For the analysis of the gender assigned to the nouns, we have used the criterion of collocational and combinatory syntax, based on the agreement of the noun with other words having different endings that appear in the same context. Together with a semantic criterion, taking into account the nature of the referent. This was determined by finding its Spanish equivalent or by a definitory paraphrasing. We confirm our hypothesis that English nouns with animate referents present in Spanish the gender of this and the inanimate ones, that of their Spanish equivalent or that which is inferred from their definitory paraphrasing.</p> María Tadea Díaz Hormigo Copyright (c) 2022 Revista de Lingüística y Lenguas Aplicadas https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16758 Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200 The Effect of Task Modality in Heritage Bilingualism Research http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16513 <p>Knowledge of the effects of task design features on linguistic performance is essential to obtain the right conclusions in linguistic research. Several studies have explored the effects of task modality in second language learners (Johnson, 1992; Murphy, 1997; Shiu, Yalçın, &amp; Spada, 2018). These studies showed that L2 learners perform better when the stimulus is presented in written form compared to aural form. However, the effect of task modality in linguistic performance is an area that needs exploration in the field of heritage bilingualism research (Jegerski, 2018). Thus, the purpose of this study is to determine the effects of task modality on linguistic performance in heritage bilinguals. Participants in this study included 63 heritage bilinguals divided into high- and low-proficiency groups. All participants completed a proficiency test, a language background questionnaire, an aural speeded acceptability judgment task, and a written speeded acceptability judgment task. The statistical analysis revealed a significant effect of task modality on linguistic performance. High-proficiency heritage bilinguals performed significantly better (i.e., shorter reaction times) when the stimuli were presented in aural form. The results of this study contribute to the existing body on research methods in linguistic and specifically, to the effects that design features may have on linguistic performance in heritage bilinguals.<strong></strong></p> Vicente Iranzo Copyright (c) 2022 Revista de Lingüística y Lenguas Aplicadas https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16513 Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Mapping discourse genres: routes to assess plurilingual discourse coompetence http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/15597 <p>A didactic model for the assessment of plurilingual discourse competence is presented in order to promote its development more effectively. The method chosen is that of online cartographic representation: on the one hand, we work with a sky map of three constellations for the theoretical conceptualization of the model; on the other hand, we represent on an earth map of five continents the genres of discourse to be learned, grouped into families. Proposing this double cartographic metaphor (sky map and earth map) has the result of guiding with criteria the teaching, learning and assessment of discourse genres to offer routes adapted to both teacher needs and those of each particular student.</p> Carmen López Ferrero, Encarna Atienza Cerezo Copyright (c) 2022 Revista de Lingüística y Lenguas Aplicadas https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/15597 Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Toward the morpho-syntactic annotation of an Old English corpus with universal dependencies http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16787 <p><span lang="EN-US">The aim of this article is to take the first steps toward the compilation of a treebank of Old English compatible with the framework of Universal Dependencies (UD). Such a treebank will comprise morphological and syntactic annotation of Old English texts adequate for cross-linguistic comparison, diachronic analysis and natural language processing. The article, therefore, engages in four tasks: (i) identifying the Old English exponents of UD lexical categories; (ii) selecting the Old English exponents of UD morphological features; (iii) finding the areas of Old English morphology that require token indexing in the UD format; and (iv) checking on the relevance of the universal set of dependency relations. The data have been extracted from ParCorOEv2, an open access annotated parallel corpus Old English-English. The main conclusions are that the annotation format calls for two additional fields (gloss and morphological relatedness) and that enhanced dependencies are required in order to account for some syntactic phenomena.</span></p> Javier Martín Arista Copyright (c) 2022 Revista de Lingüística y Lenguas Aplicadas https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16787 Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Approach to a semantic and pragmatic analysis of indicators for the determination of authorship in forensic Linguistic http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16064 <p>The purpose of this work is to analyze, taking as a reference a small sample of short texts, some indicators of semantic<br />and pragmatic nature that we consider have not been treated in the literature on authorship attribution in forensic Linguistics. Both manual stylistic analyses, which have focused mainly on aspects such as punctuation, spelling, typos and combinations of certain word classes, as well as stylometric analyses, basically provide quantitative and statistical information. We consider, however, that a study to determine authorship -especially in the case of the selected texts- should be based on a manual stylistic<br />analysis that takes into account the presence in the corresponding texts of certain speech acts, the use of different sentence modalities, the use of different connectors and, above all, the semantism of combinations and lexical units with an evaluative nature.</p> María Dolores Muñoz Núñez Copyright (c) 2022 Revista de Lingüística y Lenguas Aplicadas https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16064 Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Analysis of attributive adjectives in written chess texts http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16580 <p>The aim of this article is to identify the types of adjectives with attributive function used in chess texts. Likewise, we<br />intend to determine the position these adjectives display according to the noun they modify in a corpus of twelve texts from different sections and issues of the magazine Peón de Rey. In this study, we distinguish the diversity of adjectives used with attributive function in the texts of the magazine and determine their respective types according to their position in relation to the noun, the type of properties assigned, as well as the intensity of the concept mentioned. With this article we intend to contribute to studies on sports discourse, especially those focused on intellectually predominant sports disciplines.</p> Sara Quintero Ramírez Copyright (c) 2022 Revista de Lingüística y Lenguas Aplicadas https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16580 Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Desubjectivizing discourse through the use of the periphrasis haber que + infinitive in Spanish http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16547 <p>The present investigation analyzes the use of a construction traditionally described as impersonal: the periphrasis <em>haber que + </em>infinitive. This is a variable phenomenon in Spanish grammar studied as a meaningful choice based on the cognitive conceptualization of salience. The construction conveys a meaning of duty, obligation, recommendation or convenience by which the speaker accepts the situation described as unavoidable. Its use is analyzed in the texts of the <em>Corpus Interaccional del Español,</em> which comprises a wide range of genres and communicative situations. The hypothesis posed is that the meaning conveyed by <em>haber que</em> + infinitive contributes to the shaping of a communicative style based on the desubjectivity cognitive dimension.</p> María José Serrano Copyright (c) 2022 Revista de Lingüística y Lenguas Aplicadas https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16547 Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200 Advances in the automatic lemmatization of Old English: class V strong verbs (L-Y) http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16132 <p class="AuthorRLLA"><span lang="EN-GB">The grammatical description of Old English lacks complete and systematic lemmatization, which hinders Natural Language Processing studies in this language, as they strongly rely on the existence of large, annotated corpora. Moreover, the inflectional features of Old English preclude token-based automatic lemmatization. Therefore, specifically goal-oriented applications must be developed to account for the automatic lemmatization of specific variable categories. This article designs an automatic lemmatizer within the framework of Morphological Generation to address the type-based lemmatization of Old English class V strong verbs (L-Y). The lemmatizer is implemented with rules that account for inflectional, derivational and morphophonological variation. The generated forms are compared with the most relevant corpora of Old English for validation before being assigned a lemma. The lemmatizer is successful in supplying form-lemma associations not yet accounted for in the literature, and in identifying mismatches and areas for manual revision.</span></p> Roberto Torre Alonso Copyright (c) 2022 Revista de Lingüística y Lenguas Aplicadas https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://ojs.upv.es/index.php/rdlyla/article/view/16132 Thu, 28 Jul 2022 00:00:00 +0200
