CONFERENCE DESCRIPTION

The Linguistic Society of the Philippines and the Ateneo de Manila University will hold the 4th LSP International Conference (LSPIC 2022) and the 21st ESEA (English in Southeast Asia) International Conference on March 10-12, 2022, in a wholly digital format. 

This year’s conference is the fourth LSP International Conference. It will be conducted jointly with the 21st English in Southeast Asia International Conference to reach a wider network of educators and researchers from Southeast Asia and around the world. Both the LSP and ESEA support the tradition of providing avenues for academics, researchers, students, and language enthusiasts to share trends and issues in linguistics and language education. 

The virtual presentations highlight research on English in the Philippines and Southeast Asia and research on Philippine and other languages in the fields of language studies and linguistics, including its theoretical subfields (phonetics, phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, & pragmatics) and its hyphenated fields such as psycholinguistics and sociolinguistics, among others. The presentations also feature English language teaching and learning in the ESL and EFL zones.

This year’s theme, “Multilingualism, Multimodality, and Multiliteracies: Trends, Challenges, and Prospects,” aims to provide information and updates on the trends and innovations concerning the multi-faceted nature of language teaching and learning, the complexity of language research, and the plurality of language.
