Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Meeting Description: The 2013 Applied Linguistics Conference (AppLing 2013), to be hosted by the Department of English at National Taipei University of Technology (Taipei Tech) on November 14-15, 2013, will bring together researchers interested in language, discourse, SLA, translation, cultural studies, and other related fields to report new research findings, exchange innovative ideas, and share frameworks in these areas. This bi-annual international event was launched in 2008 with the System, Norm and the Societal: A Conference on ‘Translation Studies as Science,’ where we reflected on the socio-cultural issues behind the activity of translating. In 2009, we deliberated on language instruction, its research and development, at the Applied Linguistics and Sociolinguistics: the Form and the Content. In 2011, we held the Applied Linguistics and Language Learning: Diversity and Innovation, which provided us with another venue for scholastic exchanges. This year, we continue this tradition hoping to attract a greater number of international researchers to present research findings in their areas of expertise, with a view to facilitate productive exchanges and fruitful interaction between participants and stimulate new ideas and research directions in their respective fields of study.
