The thematic focus of the 2010 edition of the International Contrastive
Linguistics Conference will be on the relationship between contrastive
linguistics and other approaches to language comparison. What are the specific
benefits of the contrastive approach? How can methodologies and theoretical
insights of other approaches to language comparison contribute to the further
development of contrastive linguistics?
We welcome contributions dealing with all research areas of contrastive
linguistics. We especially encourage contributions to the thematic sessions.
