This special issue of TEANGA, the Journal of the Irish Association for Applied Linguistics, focuses on recent and momentous discourses of Ireland. It brings together papers from scholars who discuss and challenge discourses in various fields such as politics, identity, gender, health and migration. What all the researchers and the papers share is their methodological approach and their common interest in discourse analysis: each employing methods of discourse analysis / critical discourse analysis from their own disciplinary perspectives.

The peer-reviewed journal TEANGA (the Irish word for 'language') was first published by IRAAL in l979. Originally devoted exclusively to papers presented at IRAAL seminars and conferences, TEANGA now includes the best of these papers, as well as book reviews, research and project reports, and other significant contributions in applied linguistics. Since 2016, TEANGA has been published as a bilingual, open-access online academic journal, commencing with Volume 24.
D’fhoilsigh Cumann na Teangeolaíochta feidhmí (IRAAL) an iris phiarmheasta TEANGA don chéad uair i 1979. Ar dtús, bhí sí dírithe ar pháipéir a cuireadh i láthair ag seimineáir agus comhdhálacha IRAAL, ach anois cuirtear san áireamh an chuid is fearr de na páipéir seo mar aon le léirmheasanna ar leabhair; tuairiscí ar thaighde, ar thionscadail agus ar imeachtaí tábhachtacha eile na teangeolaíochta feidhmí. Ó 2016, tá TEANGA á foilsiú mar iris dhátheangach acadúil a bhfuil rochtain oscailte uirthi, ag tosú le hEagrán 24.
