Mauranen, Anna 2016 Temporality in speech – Linear Unit GrammarThe dynamicity of communication below, around and above the clause, Clarke, Ben and Jorge Arús-Hita (eds.), pp. 77–98
Language is usually modelled through a predominantly synoptic perspective; even if the object of analysis is spoken language, we tend to look at extracts where the analysis of parts makes use of the whole. Holistic analyses can be very good for capturing realities of language in many respects, but… read more | Article
The fastest-growing use of globalised English is among speakers for whom it is not a first language, that is, English used as a lingua franca (ELF). To keep up with the developments of the language in such varying circumstances poses a challenge to research: how can we access reliable data that… read more | Article
Mauranen, Anna 2011 Learners and users – Who do we want corpus data from?A Taste for Corpora: In honour of Sylviane Granger, Meunier, Fanny, Sylvie De Cock, Gaëtanelle Gilquin and Magali Paquot (eds.), pp. 155–172
Learner corpora and lingua franca corpora differ in important ways in social and interactional aspects. Yet in the cognitive domain of language processing they have much in common, as reflected in lexicogrammatical and phraseological features. They can therefore be seen as complementary takes on… read more | Article
Mauranen, Anna 2009 Spoken rhetoric: How do natives and non-natives fare?Cross-Linguistic and Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Academic Discourse, Suomela-Salmi, Eija and Fred Dervin (eds.), pp. 199–218
English has become the lingua franca of the academic world, and its use by non-native speakers is probably more widespread today than by natives. This paper looks into rhetorical patterning in lectures using English as a lingua franca and compares it to native speaker rhetoric. The model adopted as… read more | Article
Mauranen, Anna 2005 Contrasting languages and varieties with translational corporaContrast in Context, Aijmer, Karin, Hilde Hasselgård and Stig Johansson (eds.), pp. 73–92
Translations are invaluable sources for contrastive research. Yet they possess specific linguistic features, which arise from the nature of translation as a form of language contact. This paper explores some aspects of the specificity of translated texts: social and cognitive determinants of… read more | Article

Non-referential there has been widely discussed as part of existential sentences, and as an organiser of information in the sentence. Much less attention has been paid to its roles in discourse. As an item without a direct equivalent in many languages, it offers an interesting issue for contrastive… read more | Article
Translated texts have been known as source material for contrastive analyses for a long time. Their value as suitable data has tended to be controversial throughout, and a new controversy is springing up now that corpus linguistics offers new perspectives for contrastive studies as well. Now that… read more | Article
