This volume contains twelve papers presented at the 26th International Conference of the Croatian Applied Linguistics Society, which was held at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Zagreb in 2012. The articles deal with the way in which information appears in language, specifically with the relationship between meaning and structure, and the way it is constructed by language users, particularly in foreign language learning and teaching situations. All the articles illustrate the claim that investigating language and its information value hinges on language structure, meaning and sociocognitive factors. The analysis of one cannot be complete without analyzing the other two, based on a functional perspective.
Anita Peti-Stantic is Associate Professor at the University of Zagreb. Her research interests include sociolinguistics, information structure and neurocognitive approaches. Mateusz-Milan Stanojevic is Assistant Professor at the University of Zagreb. His research interests include conceptual metaphor and cognitive grammar.
