The latest special issue of the International Journal of Multilingualism has receptive multilingualism as its central theme. The issue is edited by Dr Jan ten Thije (Utrecht) and Prof. Jochen Rehbein (Ankara). Receptive multilingualism is a form of communication where the person who is speaking uses another language than the person who is listening, yet both understand each other.
The special issue pays attention to the use of receptive multilingualism in various settings (at work, in the army, on websites) and in various contact situations (Czech/Slovak, French/German/Italian, Estonian/Russian, and Scandinavian languages).
