CERLIS 2.5 Series (Research Centre on Specialised Languages Series, Aisberg, the institutional repository of the University of Bergamo):

The Cerlis Series publishes research into languages for specific purposes with relevance to real world problems both on a synchronic and a diachronic level. Supported by CERLIS, the Research Centre on Specialised Languages, the series aims to promote specialist language studies, both in the fields of linguistic theory and applied linguistics, by publishing volumes that focus on specific aspects of language use in one or several languages and provide valuable insights into language and communication research. The CERLIS Series is viewed not only as the relation between theory and practice, but also as the study of language and language-related problems in specific and specialized situations in which people use languages and learn professional practices. Within this framework the journal welcomes contributions in such areas of current enquiry as: bilingualism and multilingualism; computer-mediated communication; conversation analysis; corpus linguistics; critical discourse analysis; deaf linguistics; discourse analysis and pragmatics; first and additional language learning, teaching, and use; forensic linguistics; language assessment; language planning and policies; language for special purposes; lexicography; literacies; multimodal communication; rhetoric and stylistics; and translation.
