Zeitschrift für Angewandte Linguistik

Managing Editors: Jan Gerwinski, Vivien Heller, Saskia Kersten, Dorothee Meer and Miriam Morek

The Zeitschrift für Angewandte Linguistik (ZfAL) is the official publication of the Gesellschaft für Angewandte Linguistik (GAL) [Society for Applied Linguistics]. It is one of the most important German journals in this field and appears biannually.

ZfAL seeks to represent the entire field of applied linguistics and to give impulses for the academic discourse in all of its subdisciplines (e.g. phonetics and speech science, lexicography, grammar and grammar theory, text linguistics and stylistics, discourse studies, media communication, specialized communication, sociolinguistics, language contact and multilingualism, intercultural communication and multilingual discourses, translation/interpretation studies, language didactics, media didactics and media competence, computer linguistics, among others). The emphasis of applied linguistics is on the transfer of linguistic methods and insights to the professional practice of those whose work concerns language, language use and communication.
