Modern Linguistics


Language Didactics


The LiDi conference series aims at discussing the scope of recent findings in the field of linguistics as they potentially connect to the development of new instructional methods in language teaching. The LiDi series provides a platform for building new bridges that close the gap between the so-called social turn in educational linguistics and modern formal approaches to natural language, to eventually explore new teaching methodologies.
