Topics in Applied Linguistics (TAL): Communication in the New Media Age

The 3rd International TAL Conference will have communication as its focus. The choice of the topic has been motivated by the changing landscape of communication options.

The questions that we would like to address during  the Conference concern the impact of the new media on second language acquisition and foreign language learning and teaching, bilingualism and multilingualism, contrastive linguistics, language assessment, literacies, discourse analysis, language pedagogy, lexicography, language planning and policies, pragmatics, forensic linguistics, and translation.

Colloque international: La traduction dans des contextes de plurilinguisme officiel

Ce colloque souhaite fournir l’occasion d’échanger sur la spécificité de la traduction et de l’interprétation dans des contextes de multilinguisme officiel ou institutionnel et les « effets de traduction » (Simon 1996) qui s’y font ressentir. Bon nombre de pays du monde sont officiellement multilingues : l’Afghanistan (le pachtou, le dari), la Belgique (le néerlandais, le français, l’allemand), le Cameroun et le Canada (l’anglais, le français), la Finlande (le finnois, le suédois), l’Inde (23 langues officielles), l’Irlande (l’irlandais, l’anglais), Israël (l’hébreu, l’arabe), la Norvège (les deux variétés du norvégien), le Pakistan (l’ourdou, l’anglais), les Philippines (l’anglais, le filipino-tagalog), l’Afrique du Sud (11 langues officielles) et la Suisse (le français, l’allemand, l’italien), entre autres pays, de même que bon nombre d’organisations internationales (p. e. l’Organisation des Nations Unies, la Commission européenne, Amnesty International). Les interventions traiteront au moins un aspect de l’interaction entre la traduction et le multilinguisme officiel, par exemple l’institutionnalisation de la traduction dans les pays et les organisations identifiés ci-dessus de même que dans d’autres pays et organisations, voire dans les villes bilingues.

There is no doubt that the fact that I'm multilingual and have learnt more languages since when I was a little boy, has meant that I can easily learn new languages.
