The Joint Annual Linguistics Conference 2010
to be held in Pretoria, South Africa
26-29 September 2010
The Linguistic Society of Southern Africa (LSSA) and the Southern African
Applied Linguistics Association (SAALA) are two scholarly societies that
promote and co-ordinate the research, study and teaching of general and
applied linguistics by means of the publication of an accredited journal and
the organisation of a joint annual conference, which provides an opportunity
for an exchange of ideas and for mutual stimulus to researchers in the field
of language studies in Southern Africa. In 2010, the conference organisers
have committed themselves to supporting the South African Association of
Language Teachers (SAALT) to get their activities on track again in a
structured environment. The 2010 conference will thus have special SAALT
activities and will include SAALT members. The theme of the 2010 annual,
joint conference is:
-Languages change in terms of their structure, as well as in terms of their
spread and usage patterns in communities.
-Languages change individuals and communities through their linguistic and
cognitive development, through learning and education, as well as through
-language planning and development.
-Languages change relationships between individuals and communities in
multilingual settings and through language use and intercultural interaction.
