Ph.D. programme in Foreign Literatures, Languages and Linguistics - 33° ciclo (October 1, 2017 - September 30, 2020)

Doctorate research program
The focus of the project is the use of Communication Strategies in Intercultural Communication through ELF; therefore, the study will start from the overview of ELF competence and Intercultural Awareness in order to understand what ‘intercultural communication’ means and implies in ELF contexts and how it can be linked to ELF competence. Subsequently, the use of Communication Strategies in ELF will be outlined, in order to comprehend how meaning and understanding are negotiated in communication and how Communication Strategies play an important role in these processes. For these reasons, the project will analyse how a selection of Communication Strategies is used in ELF intercultural communication through data from two ELF corpora, VOICE and ViMELF. Finally, the project aims at investigating how the analysed Communication Strategies could be used to negotiate culture and how, if possible, these strategies can be taught following an ELF-oriented pedagogy.
