Featured Linguist!

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 ALAPP conference aims to provide a site for engagement between scholars and researchers working on language and those working in professional areas including business, education, healthcare, law, management, the media and social care. The intention is to enable people on either side to find ways of working together, and of using their expertise in collaborative ventures. Interdisciplinary research that represents this kind of collaborative work which focuses on how knowledge is jointly created rather than how knowledge is exchanged is particularly welcome. It is this creation of shared knowledge among different researchers and professionals working together that has the potential to enrich our disciplines and ideally lead to changed practice.

The conference provides a way forward for academics working on language from different disciplinary perspectives, and brings academic research out of the university and into the community, the world of business and the world of professional practice. It is hoped that the cross-disciplinary dialogue will create a platform for applied linguists, professionals and professional educators to jointly problematize workplace and organisational issues, protocols, cultures, practices and procedures to make sense of the discursive practices of the professional world and ultimately achieve effective communication amongst practitioners in the context of specific professional fields.
