Objective Applied Linguistics Review (ALR) is an international, peer-reviewed journal that bridges the gap between linguistics and applied areas such as education, psychology and human development, sociology and politics. It serves as a testing ground for the articulation of original ideas and approaches in the study of real-world issues in which language plays a crucial role. ALR brings together critical reflections of current debates and new theoretical and empirical research.
Topics Aspects of the linguistic and communicative competence of the individual:
bilingualism and multilingualism
first or second language acquisition
Language and communication related problems in and between societies:
communication in the workplace
language policy and language planning
and language ideology
Articles that not only report new research findings but also engage in philosophical and methodological debates and point to directions of future research are particularly welcome.
