The 2021 PLIN Day will take place at UCLouvain (Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium) and/or online on Friday, May 7th and is devoted to "Linguistics applied to Business Language in a multilingual and multicultural world". It offers academics, professionals, undergraduate and postgraduate students an excellent opportunity to access, share and discuss cutting edge research in the field. The following (non-exhaustive) list of themes will be covered this year:

  • The use of (corpus) linguistic methods in the study of organizational communication and/or the characteristics of business language;
  • Research on techniques and practices for clear and simple communication within organizations. This includes techniques for simplifying documents issued by organizations in order to enhance accessibility;
  • The challenges of the use of "English as a lingua franca" in organizational communication and, more generally, of communication in English between native and non-native speakers within organizations;
  • Intercultural communication in multilingual business communication.
