This is a call for papers for a special thematic issue of Issues in Applied Linguistics, the peer reviewed scholarly journal published by UCLA's Department of Applied Linguistics. The central theme of this special issue is:
"SPECIAL ISSUE IN ARABIC APPLIED LINGUISTICS AND PEDAGOGY"
Topics: Any topic discussing or describing linguistic phenomenon or the language landscape in Arabic countries are welcomed! In doing so, we hope to foreground the complexities of the Singapore multi‐lingual linguistic landscape in terms of its language policies, ideology and other cultural aspects. Methodologies may include Critical Discourse Analysis, Conversation Analysis, Functional Grammar, Discourse Linguistics, Pragmatics, Sociolinguistics, Language Teaching, Language Assessment, SLA, Discourse and Grammar, Language Pedagogy & Policies, Language and Culture, and Neurobiology of Language Acquisition etc. Book reviews on similar themes are also welcome.
Graduate students are also encouraged to submit. Manuscripts should be no longer than 30 pages double spaced, including tables.
