About

This group seeks to expand knowledge in the area of linguistics. The group activities have informally been initiated in 2010 marked with the analysis of written discourse of English language textbooks. Currently, the key areas of this group’s research include sociolinguistics, ethnolinguistics, (interlanguage) pragmatics, bilingualism, and discourse studies. In view of its affinity with English language teaching (ELT) within the postcolonial context of Indonesia in which English is foreign, the current research activities of this group are intimately linked to linguistic data pertinent to educational activities. Within this guise, in its initial step, a priority is given to linguistic data most readily accessible to the physical existence of the principal researchers within the vicinity of Universitas Negeri Malang, Indonesia. However, comparative undertaking is also sought for through potential collaboration with other researchers at external institutions, both in Indonesia and abroad.

As the research activities are carried out along the fast technological development, digital analytic software is consulted to allow for rigorous methodological implementation and quality research results. Since digital analytic software also allows for analysis of literary data, the group’s research activities may also traverse over the area of stylistics and poetic performance. This insinuates that the data to deal with include literary and non-literary kinds. This also suggests that the data are spoken and written. Yet, since categorization tends to easily fall trap into absolutism at the expense of potential novelty, the categorization is put into perspective and refinement of the categorization is always encouraged and forged.

As the research activities deal with context-bound linguistic data, both data-based and data-driven analyses are possibly equally executed. Therefore, theory verification and generation are possibly carried out as this group’s research activities. Hence, a posteriori and a priori knowledge can be anticipated as the research products of this group.

Our motto is “Discover the beauty of language through linguistics”.
