An Introductive Presentation

  • Liliana Landolfi Universit√† degli Studi di Napoli "L'Orientale"
Keywords: Applied Linguistics, translation, English as Lingua franca (ELF), English as an international language (EIL), ESL/EFL applications, inclusivity


The collection of papers, which Multidisciplinary Ties within Applied Linguistics (MTAL) presents, has its roots in the International Conference Translation, Inclusivity and Educational Settings (TIES) and, from that event, it departs to offer interesting perspectives that identify both innovative and summative interpretations in the field of Applied Linguistics (AL). In particular, in this special issue of Anglistica AION, English will be touched upon as a Lingua Franca (ELF), as a working field for translation-geared issues, as an International Language (EIL), and as an educational and methodological subject of inquiry in relation to English as a Foreign or Second Language (EFL/ESL) and to the important role that inclusivity plays in pedagogical matters. This issue will be of interest to scholars, researchers, translators, doctoral students, teachers, teacher-trainers, and language students who will gain insight into multifaceted realities. This special issue of Anglistica AION is dedicated to all the students, the researchers and the colleagues who, on a daily basis, contribute to the evolution of investigations within the field of Applied Linguistics to which I devoted my entire academic career.
