Teaching Foreign Languages: Languages for Special Purposes is a collection of essays which will appeal to teachers of modern languages no matter the level of instruction. The essays deal with three main approaches of the teaching of languages for special purposes in Europe, Asia and Africa: theoretical linguistics (lexis: French vocabulary; and semantics: French copulative verbs); descriptive linguistics (compared linguistics: English a Romanian, English a Serbian, French a Romanian, French a Serbian, and German a Macedonian); and applied linguistics (language acquisition: English in Romania and Spanish in Serbia; language education: Arabic in Italy, English in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Iran, Malaysia, Russia, Serbia, and the United Arab Emirates; German in Serbia; lexicography: English, French, Romanian, Ruthenian and Serbian; stylistics: English, French and Spanish; and translation: English, Italian and Romanian).The last essay compares a Germanic and a Slavic language again a German and Macedonian. Biljana IVANOVSKA and Astrid-Simone GROSZLER explain some common idioms with the means of the contrastive language analysis.
