Meeting Description:

CALPL will be an interdisciplinary forum that brings together the research findings of language experts as well as promising scholars from the different but juxtaposed academic disciplines of Applied Linguistics and Philosophy of Language. Both established and junior researchers will have the opportunity to undermine academic boundaries between ''self-sufficient’’ structural Linguistics and the elaborate and complex discipline of Philosophy of Language in the hope of offering practical academic and pedagogical grounds for language teaching and language learning.

Call for Papers:

The conference invites papers on any area of Applied Linguistics and Philosophy of Language, with particular focus on the following themes:

- Applied Linguistics for English language teaching
- Non-native speakers' development of the skills of English as a foreign language
- The role of meaning in language learning
- The role of language in social communication
- The role of cultural and social elements of communication in developing second language learning

The contributions are expected to provide an appropriate methodological framework with which to enhance both teachers' performance and students' ability to assimilate and learn language skills in a culturally different context.
