Meeting Description: Langue française mise en relief(s) : Aspects linguistiques, didactiques et institutionnels
Perpignan, 6-8 June 2013

The 2013 AFLS (Association for French Language Studies) conference will take place in Perpignan, France from 6-8 June. This conference will be a forum for exploring the notion of ‘mise en relief’ in French. Different understandings of this notion will be brought together and explored from a linguistic point of view, but also in relation to applied issues and in terms of language policy.
