“She said that he said that they said…” – in this volume of the AILA Review, we investigate linguistic recycling from complementary angles. In particular, we discuss how and for whom language users – both as individuals and as communities – save resources and create value by quoting and recontextualizing others’ utterances. The volume introduction develops a systematic framework to analyze the formal, functional, and procedural aspects of linguistic recycling. It is followed by ten papers that investigate practices of linguistic recycling in domains such as language education, academia, and high-tech industries. Trigger questions are meant to stimulate the 2020 debate on linguistic recycling in the AILA Researchers’ Forum:
