Abstract:

The way speakers in multilingual contexts develop own varieties in their
interactions sheds light on code switching and multimodal dynamic
co-constructions of grammar in use. This volume explores the intersection of
multimodality and language use of multilingual speakers.

Firstly, theoretical frames are discussed and empirical studies involving
Catalan, German and Spanish as L1, L2 or FL are presented interconnecting
verbal and gestural modalities into grammar description or exploring actions
as sources for gestures, which may nonverbally represent the argument in
German dynamic motion verbs. Other chapters focuse on positionings in
interviews, lexical access searches or proxemics in greetings and farewells.
The contributions secondly focus on verbal features of language use in
multilingual contexts related to self-representation and co-construction of
identity through code-switching, deixis or argumentative reasoning in
different communicative events based on multilingual data of languages
including Croatian, English, Italian, Brazilian-Portuguese and Polish.

The findings call for a reviewed conception of grammar description with
implications also for the conceptualization of deixis, for L2/foreign language
acquisition and language teaching policies.
