The LSSA/SAALA/SAALT Joint Annual Conference 2015 was organised by the School of Languages, Potchefstroom Campus, North-West University. By way of supplementing and thus documenting this landmark Joint Annual Conference the editorial board of Literator is soliciting contributions for a special issue on ‘Themes in Southern African Linguistics’. Contributions will be welcomed in the fields of Applied Linguistics, Language Practice, Language teaching, Linguistilitcs and Sign Language, from presenters and attendees of the LSSA/SAALA/SAALT Joint Annual Conference 2015 as well as from members of the three major linguistic societies.
Contributions may be written in any of the three conference languages, viz. English, Afrikaans and Tswana. In line with the editorial policy of Literator, contributions in Dutch, German and French will also be welcomed.
There will only be space for 16 articles. The first target date for submission is 15 January 2016 and the final date for submission is, as indicated in the call for papers, 31 January 2016.
Based on the topics presented at this year’s conference we are expecting contributions on themes of multilingualism, language politics, language teaching and especially language policy.
