DGfS 2020 – The 42nd Annual Conference of the German Linguistic Society
Organization: The German Linguistic Society
Topics: This year’s general topic is Linguistic Diversity: Theories, Methods, Resources. The topic can be approached from different perspectives: multilingualism, language contact, language variation, language change, etc. The triad of “theories, methods, resources” opens up a theoretical perspective as well as a discussion of empirical methods and digital resources. In the latter, the use of technologies and questions of sustainability play a key role. The concept of resources also includes cognitive/mental resources in multilingualism or multilingual (inter)action and can be empirically analysed. The triad thus implies an inter-relation between theoretical and practical implications.
