A book on the languages of the northwest of the Iberian Peninsula
I am happy to announce the release, 11 months and one day after the SIALNI1 event (Genoa, May 21, 2021), of ‘El Mapa Lingüístico del Noroccidente Ibérico: Contacto, Variación y Cambio’, a volume that collects some contributions to the SIALNI1 event + a few essays by some invited authors. It was an extraordinary experience to collaborate with all of them and, of course, prof. Alfonso Zamorano Aguilar, the director of the LINCOM series Studies in Spanish Linguistics. On November 18, we’ll be back with SIALNI2, this time in Oviedo, Asturias! I hope to see you all there! 🙂

Presenting at ICFLL in Lisbon
I have been accepted for a presentation at the 1st International Conference on Foreign Language Learning (ICFLL), which will be held at Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal on June 1-2, 2020. My contribution will be entitled ‘Aprender Português através de uma pequena tela? Sobre o uso de tecnologias móveis no aprendizado de idiomas estangeiros.’ As usual, I will post the slides shortly after the conference. Stay tuned! 😊
‘Exploring Language(s)’ – video 05 out now!
The new ‘Exploring Language(s)’ video is an interview with professor Augusto Soares da Silva (UCP – Braga ) on the status of Portuguese as an international language. We recorded the interview in Portuguese; then I manually added the subtitles in the three ‘official languages’ of the channel. Watch it with the subtitles in your favorite language! 😉
As usual, the links to the video will be stored in the video repository.
