Topic Language - Science for the Classroom

The aim of this series is to explore the scientific potential that a study of language has in relation to school contexts. On the one hand, it will be asked how fields of application and findings of the scientific disciplines of linguistics, language teaching research and the didactics of language can be profitably transferred to classroom practice for school objectives, and on the other hand, what impulses could emanate from the classroom for the scientific disciplines.


The series is subject to double-blind peer review. 

If you are interested in publishing in the series, please contact the editors. Initially, please include a one to two page abstract of your work.

For more information on the design and review process of the series, please see the series information sheet deposited here .
