Bericht uber den 2. Internationalen Kongress fur Angewandte Linguistik. Cambridge 8.-12. IX. 1969. [Report on the Second International Congress for Applied Linguistics, Cambridge, Dec. 8-12, 1969.]
Mohr, Peter
This paper is a summary report on the Second International Congress of Applied Linguistics held in Cambridge, England in September 1969. Because of the large number of papers delivered, only a selection of the papers delivered in any one section of the Congress are considered, and the author attempts to identify current interests and trends in applied linguistics as reflected in these papers. The report follows the sectional organization of the Congress, considering the papers under the following headings: Linguistics Applied to Literary Texts; Computer Analysis of Texts; Research in the Psychology of First Language Learning; Research in the Psychology of Second Language Learning; Speech Research and its Applications; Technology of Language Learning; Language Teaching Materials; Language Teaching Methodology; Linguistic Aspects of Language Disorders and Therapy; Lexicography; Language Test Materials; Measurement and Classification of Second Language Errors; Theory of Translation; Contrastive Linguistics; Sociolinguistics. Despite the wide range of topics, the majority of papers were given in the sections pertaining to language pedagogy. The text of this report is in German, but most of the papers referred to were delivered in English. (FWB)
