International Conference on Languages, Linguistics and Society 2013
CALL FOR PAPERS
Language plays a broad range of essential roles in society and institutions with diverse needs, aspirations, cultures, traditions, and practices while linguistics offers numerous approaches to the study of how communities, groups and individuals interact or communicate with one another. To promote the importance of language learning, facilitate our understanding of languages, and broaden our knowledge of linguistics, we are organising the International Conference on Languages, Linguistics and Society in Sabah, Malaysia, which is well known for its multi-ethnic and multi-cultural identity.
The upcoming conference will look into various issues of both global and local concerns especially in relation to the use and learning of different languages. This conference covers topics pertaining to applied linguistics and theoretical linguistics in various institutional, social, and cultural contexts. The conference also welcomes presentations based on studies conducted from inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary perspectives, involving research into language/s in different academic disciplines. We hope to provide an interesting platform for researchers, academics, instructors, language practitioners, policy makers, postgraduate candidates, and members of the public to share knowledge and engage in meaningful interactions.
We aim to
- investigate, discuss, and exchange ideas related to the learning and/or use of language in institutional, social and/or cultural settings,
- explore the benefits of cross-disciplinary studies involving linguistics, and
- examine the theoretical and/or practicalimplications of new ideas, perspectives, theories, and recommendations concerning different approaches to language teaching and/or language analysis.
