Today, the world is witnessing an upheaval of various natures in different parts of the planet. The turmoil is consequent of a multifaceted economic, political and social cause of which the immediate shockwave has induced a dual change of global mentalities and of societal superstructures. By the same token, the changing sociologies have impacted a set of overt and covert sociolinguistic norms onto these societies and their members.
The topics of research that can be drawn out of these issues are numerous. Among these, one can cite:
The emergence of new terminologies reflecting novel social tendencies Changes in roles and breaking role compartmentalisation Changes in communication politics and the mass-media Redefinition of the concept of freedom of speech Language, social status, and social class Language and gender Language policy and education Language and social change
These topics are by no means exhaustive; they can be enriched with other proposals and discussions. Papers dealing with these aforementioned topics, or any other relevant to the overall theme enunciated in this call, are warmly invited.
