2013 joint annual conference of the South African Association for Language Teaching (SAALT), the Southern African Applied Linguistics Association, the Linguistics Society of Southern Africa Conference

The 2013 joint annual conference of the South African Association for Language Teaching (SAALT), the Southern African Applied Linguistics Association (SAALA) and the Linguistics Society of Southern Africa (LSSA) will be held July 1-4 in the beautiful and historic town of Stellenbosch. The conference is being organised by Stellenbosch University’s Language Centre,  as well as the Departments of General Linguistics, and Afrikaans and Dutch.

The theme of the conference, Language: policy, planning, practice and principles, highlights a contemporary global issue. Since the protection of cultural and linguistic diversity is of major concern, especially within an educational environment, the emphasis of this conference is on

(i) the development and management of language policies;
(ii) the language planning necessary for the implementation of language policies;
(iii) the selection of the language support initiatives required in a multilingual environment, as well as the language practices employed by communities in order to exercise their language rights and their citizenship through language; and
(iv) an understanding of the theoretical principles that underlie language.
