Applied Linguistics for Biblical Languages

Program Unit Type: Seminar
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Applied Linguistics for Biblical Languages Group is accepting paper proposals for 2014 on themes related to the pedagogy of the biblical languages. In addition, a joint-session this year will be sponsored with the National Association of Professors of Hebrew that will focus on "Issues Surrounding Spoken Hebrew in Pedagogy." These include but are not limited to: the quality of the biblical dialect being used, the quality of the speech, contraindications or obstacles, the psycholinguistics of oral pedagogy for enhanced reading, the pros/cons and role of modern Hebrew, the potential contributions to the field of Biblical Studies, and the gap between traditional training of teachers and what may be needed if oral competency is adopted as a desirable goal for the field.
