»Copenhagen Studies in Language« carries studies in both language for general purposes and language for special purposes (LSP). Its scope covers grammar, semantics, pragmatics, text linguistics and translation, from a theoretical as well as an applied perspective. It is the editors´ policy to bring out thematic volumes. The present volume on computer assisted language learning is the latest in a series of volumes following this policy. While based at the Copenhagen Business School, the series is open to contributions from linguists in other institutions, in Denmark and abroad.
