Title: Multilingualism and Applied Comparative Linguistics (Volume II)
Edited By: Franks Boers
Jeroen Darquennes
Koen Kerremans
Rita Temmerman
Description:

In February 2006 the first international conference on Multilingualism and
Applied Comparative Linguistics (MACL) was held in Brussels, Belgium. The
aim of the MACL conference was to bring together scholars from various
branches of applied linguistics with a shared interest in cross-linguistic
and cross-cultural communication. The conference thus fostered an exchange
of knowledge and expertise among researchers from various disciplines,
including educational linguistics, cultural linguistics, terminography,
translation studies and studies of specialised languages.

The present book is the second of two volumes containing a selection from
the approximately 120 papers that were presented at that three-day event.
The book comprises five chapters, reflecting different research
perspectives on cross-linguistic and cross-cultural communication. The
first chapter covers research articles on metaphors and planned languages.
The second chapter comprises articles dealing with language attitudes,
language proficiency and language practices in cross-linguistic and
cross-cultural, communicative contexts. Chapter three features articles in
the field of discourse-analysis research. In the fourth chapter research is
presented that pertains to terminology and specialised languages. Finally,
chapter five deals with translation studies.
