Call for contributions

International Workshop on Language Acquisition in Copenhagen 24th -25th June, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark

DESCRIPTION This workshop aims to provide a venue for researchers to discuss current and future research directions for language acquisition. We especially encourage contributions on the special theme “multimodality and child language acquisition”, but other topics related to language acquisition are welcome too. Studies on multimodal language processing are new in the field of language acquisition, and even rarer for bilingual language acquisition. The workshop will include an open discussion session on the importance of gestures in (early) bilingual language acquisition. Previous studies have shown that lexical, syntactic and gesture development are closely linked, and development of gestures is a prerequisite for language development. Incorporating multimodality in the study of bilingual language acquisition can provide new insights that can, in the long-term, result in new methodologies and strategies for teaching a second language and language acquisition in general. The workshop is organized under the Network “Multimodal Child Language Acquisition” supported by the Independent Research Fund Denmark.

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS We welcome contributions addressing any of the following topics in bilingualism and multimodal communication:

* > Bilingual acquisition of languages in children

* > Second language acquisition

* > Transfer/interference in second language learning

* > Code-mixing and code-switching phenomena, and their effect on language acquisition and social impact

* > Early development of gestures

* > Gestures and language development

* > Child language

* > Gestures and foreign language learning

* > Data collection, annotation and/or processing of (multimodal) corpora for language acquisition

* > Crowdsourcing for language acquisition

* > Bi-/trilingual child language corpora

* > NLP for language acquisition

* > Other related topics
