Call for Papers:

Where linguistic theories and practices meet – towards a realistic picture of the English language

The Linguistic Section invites papers that reflect on and explore the role of the English language in modern society, with regard to its empirical and didactic implications. Its aim is to bring together a variety of theoretical framings and methodological approaches as well as other points of view and disciplines in an attempt to work out new solutions to existing problems. We would be happy if prospective speakers could consider theoretical and practical challenges posed by English as a broad subject of study. The most welcome areas of discussion and study include the following issues:

Theoretical and Descriptive Linguistics:
- interaction in and within the English language
- English in communication
- recent changes in the English language
- English in multicontextual approaches
- traditional and recent methodological approaches to the systemic study of English
- unsolved linguistic problems concerning the English language

Applied Linguistics:
- recent developments in EFL teaching methodology
- EFL classroom and language awareness
- EFL contexts and: mother tongue use, translanguaging, bilingualism, multilingualism, …
- English in translation, interpreting and localization
- linguistic theories as solutions to realistic problems
