Applied Linguistics for Biblical Languages

Accepting Papers? No

Call For Papers: The Applied Linguistics for Biblical Languages Group in San Francisco 2011 will be looking at classroom immersion techniques.

One session will be devoted to Hebrew and look at both entry level and intermediate-advanced level classroom situations, as well as the practical questions of advantages and disadvantages.

Another session will be devoted to Greek with similar questions.

A third session will focus on Greek Phonology and Pronunciation. It will be jointly sponsored with Biblical Greek Language and Linguistics Section.

Persons interested in following the planning of the sessions and serving as volunteers for some of the demonstrations are requested to email the chairs to be placed on an appropriate email list for Greek, Hebrew, or both. All of these sessions will be arranged by invitation.

Finally, two special lunch meetings will be set up, one for Greek and one for Hebrew, where colleagues interested in pedagogical issues can meet each other in a friendly setting and speak in their shared language of interest.
