During this year 2020, all of us in the ESJ Family are celebrating the ESJ 10th anniversary. When I was asked to edit a special edition, at first, I was reluctant, because I really did not know what to propose. During those months, the whole world was in total lockdown and the only communication means were our telephones and computers. I did all my university lessons online, all the institutional meetings online, I even met many of my students online. Therefore, being forced to stay home, I decided to start this task that was unknown to me and wonder into the Language of Pandemics. I invited some of my dearest Colleagues, and some of them accepted to participate with me in this unique experience; unique because I hope that we will not have the chance again to live such an experience as the one we are living during these strange days. The papers in this Special Issue use a variety of research methods and they all describe with different angles and different viewpoints this exceptional human condition. Furthermore, this Special Issue is aimed at highlighting language in all its aspects and especially as a communication and an exchange tool during this historical period.

Abstract

During this year 2020, all of us in the ESJ Family are celebrating the ESJ 10th anniversary. When I was asked to edit a special edition, at first, I was reluctant, because I really did not know what to propose. During those months, the whole world was in total lockdown and the only communication means were our telephones and computers. I did all my university lessons online, all the institutional meetings online, I even met many of my students online. Therefore, being forced to stay home, I decided to start this task that was unknown to me and wonder into the Language of Pandemics. I invited some of my dearest Colleagues, and some of them accepted to participate with me in this unique experience; unique because I hope that we will not have the chance again to live such an experience as the one we are living during these strange days. The papers in this Special Issue use a variety of research methods and they all describe with different angles and different viewpoints this exceptional human condition. Furthermore, this Special Issue is aimed at highlighting language in all its aspects and especially as a communication and an exchange tool during this historical period.
