This first issue of 2014, devoted as in the past years to pedagogy and linguistics, is particularly rich. The variety of topics--from language teaching to sociolinguistic analyses, from matters of translation to linguistic editorial practices--displays the depth and the breadth of Italian scholarship in the field. This issue, as all the previous pedagogical and linguistic issues under my tenure as editor, was the fruit of a strict collaboration with Michael Lettieri, Associate Editor for Linguistics/Pedagogy and next Editor in Chief of Italica, as announced in my last editorial note. The reviews were as always vetted and edited with the usual professional care by Associate Editor Mark Pietralunga, while Edward Bowen, my editorial assistant at Indiana University has dealt impeccably with all matters related to the actual preparation of this issue. Each issue sees three stages of proof readings beyond the one reserved to the authors, and in each of these stages Bowen has been a precious collaborator. Last but not least, a heartfelt thanks to all the readers for their indispensable work, and to the authors, naturally.
