CFP: Stellenbosch Papers in Linguistics

SPIL Plus is inviting original scholarly research papers with a connection to Translation, Interpreting and Editing Studies for a special edition on Language Practice in Multilingual Communities.

Guest editors:
Ilse Feinauer, Department of Afrikaans & Dutch, Stellenbosch University
Kate Huddlestone, Department of General Linguistics, Stellenbosch University

Multilingualism has an increasing impact on societies world-wide and this necessarily implies an increase in the use and visibility of language practitioners. The main role of language practitioners is to improve multilingual transfer and as a result guarantee levels of equality as envisaged for multilingual societies. Papers could inter alia focus on the impact language practitioners have on the multilingual transfer and sharing of all types of information exchange involved in multilingual communication. Papers could also focus on how better understanding of complex cultural and/or ideological diversity in multilingual communities is brought about by the intervention of language practitioners. The scope of articles could range from e.g. literary translation, film subtitling, and educational or community interpreting to the editing of legal documents or newspaper articles.
SPIL Plus is an annual/biannual open access, peer-reviewed international journal, published by the Department of General Linguistics, Stellenbosch University. The papers published in SPIL Plus are primarily intended for scholars with an interest in linguistics and related disciplines in Southern Africa. SPIL Plus provides a platform for scholars to share knowledge in the form of high quality empirical and theoretical research papers, case studies, literature reviews and book reviews.
