Abstract: This festschrift in honour of Kurt Kohn reflects the wide range of perspectives of an applied linguist whose research demonstrates his recognition of the importance of interdisciplinarity. At the same time, the volume provides a forum for the discussion of the many diverse aspects of second language research and its applications. The first section of the book examines modern concepts of second language acquisition and language teaching, including communicative competence, aptitude, bilingualism and multilingualism, content and language integrated learning, and spoken language teaching. Section two discusses new approaches to English as a lingua franca (ELF), distinguishing it from English as a foreign language and focusing on its uses in lingua franca situations. Section three deals with new forms of translation and interpreting including community interpreting, dubbing and subtitling, and further reaching questions for translation pedagogy and text-based terminography. Emerging as a central aspect in this section, the role of understanding texts in second language contexts is also discussed in section four in which a range of interdisciplinary contributions sheds new light on the interpretation of literary texts by integrating linguistic and literary approaches to understanding utterances. The final section takes a fresh look at the new technologies and their role in eLearning and Blended Learning. The contributions in this section explore innovative topics such as the support of learning through web-based authoring tools, electronic corpora and collaborative web environments, developing them in the forward-thinking spirit of Kurt Kohn.
