Doctor of Philological Sciences
Professor at Khorog State University
The lecture examines the state of development of applied linguistics in the context of rapidly developing society. The need for development of applied linguistics comes from the need for preparation of linguists, who have new mindset and skills that are required in the modern world, and of other professionals whom the state needs today – information analysts; philology specialists; public relations specialists who can work in various organisations, for-profit companies and promotional agencies; travel managers; advertisement specialists; administrative staff; executive assistants; highly-skilled technical translators. Automated language learning systems, developed with the use of applied linguistics, help achieve good results much faster, and improve learning outcomes, as it pertains to linguistics. Cutting-edge information processing techniques, based on linguistic and mathematics methods, are examined in the context of learning native and foreign languages.
