The Significance of the Conference

Linguistics is divided into two main branches, theoretical and applied linguistics, but the aspects of similarities between the two branches outweigh the aspects of difference. Since applied linguistics is an interdisciplinary science, it has become necessary to consider the fabric (network) of its relationships. In defining its concepts and monitoring those relationships, applied linguistics mediates language theories and language teaching practice. At the same time, it derives its topics from neighbouring fields of knowledge, such as psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, theoretical linguistics, and education. Educational linguistics comes at the forefront of branches of applied linguistics in terms of significance which made scholars and researchers pay attention to this branch and grant it special attention in its various aspects.

As for educational linguistics and technology. Technology is no longer just a tool that accompanies the learning process. Rather, it has been able to become a substitute for the language teacher sometimes, and a substitute for the realistic classroom at other times. This change has led to a reconsideration of pedagogical concepts and theories in general, and language pedagogy in particular.

The field of applied linguistics in the Arab World is still groping its pace compared to Western achievements. Therefore, the task of taking care of it is entrusted to the faculties of languages and Arabic language departments in universities.

Finally, this conference will raise a number of issues, raise a number of problems, and evaluate a number of projects. To facilitate language teaching and learning, through the themes that will be presented.
