Subject: Call for Papers on English as a lingua franca and an official language

The editors of the Linguistic Association of Korea (LAK) Journal will
produce Volume 10, No. 1 in Spring, 2001. It will be specialized for
'English as a lingua franca and English as an official language.' We
chose this topic to upgrade the on-going debate on English as an
official language in Korea with professional insight. We will be happy
to see papers on the valuable experience of the countries which
already faced the challenge. We also welcome submission of papers on
all topics in the field of theoretical and applied linguistics
including language teaching. The language of publication is English.
