Conference on Applied Linguistics (Conaplin) 7

The Seventh Conference on Applied Linguistics
“Language Varieties and Language Teaching
in a Multiethnic Setting”

23-24 November 2014

The seventh Conference on Applied Linguistics (the 7th CONAPLIN) takes “Language Varieties and Language Teaching in a Multiethnic Setting” as its theme. The theme shares the values of multilingualism and the necessity of having a common language. As put forward by David Crystal (2012), multilingualism gives rise to rich, diverse perspectives and insights, which in turn enables us to better understand the nature of humanity; whereas, to arrive at sheer possibilities of mutual understanding and international partnership, a language shared by the global community is called for.

At the international level, English is incontrovertibly an international or global language. It is spoken by hundreds of millions of speakers around the globe, whose mother tongue is not English. In light of that, English has been taught as a second/foreign language in a great number of countries, English speaking and non-speaking countries and by both native speakers of English and non-native speakers alike. This has allowed for a wide range of English varieties/dialects that people use on a regular basis, which bring profound implications for English teaching, that is, which variety is to be taught?

At the national level, Indonesian is the official language, the only language used in offices, schools, and formal institutions. This creates an interesting situation, in which Indonesian is established as the only language in the context where people speak hundreds of distinct ethnic languages as their mother tongues. The imposition of Indonesian as the only language of instruction at the early level of education has arguably eroded the vitality of ethnic languages. Consequently, ethnic languages have perpetually lost their place in the society despite the current practice of ethnic language teaching in schools.

The foregoing points add to the complicated portrayal of the present-day English-Indonesian-ethnic language situation in the Indonesian context. The 7th CONAPLIN acknowledges these and therefore welcome papers and posters that explore these issues from a variety of perspectives: language preservation/maintenance, language right, language policy, language description (grammar), discourse analysis, corpus linguistics, psycholinguistics, language teaching, teacher training, language curriculum and material development, language acquisition, literary studies, and the like. The conference is hoped to serve as a vehicle for language researchers, teachers, practitioners, policy makers, or even enthusiasts to share their data and insights on the issue at hand and draw insightful conclusions for future practice and follow-up studies.

1. Prof. Leslie Harbourne (Sydney University)
