Today the discourse OF migration is often a discourse ON migration with those at the core of the issue occupying the object as opposed to the subject position. The aim of the present volume is to reposition such objects of discourse. Research therefore focuses on a linguistic analysis of the travel chronicles of 30 English-speaking asylum seekers from nine different countries of origin presently residing in the Campania region of Italy. By carrying out a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the migrants'use of pronominal, verbal and lexical structures in English, it has been possible to gain insight into how they evaluate their past and present circumstances and their future horizons of expectancy.
