The Linguistics Research Centre of Universidade Nova de Lisboa (CLUNL) and the Department of Portuguese of the University of Macau are inviting submissions for a Workshop on Crosslinguistic Influence in Non-Native Language Acquisition, which will be held at Universidade Nova de Lisboa on 29-30 June 2012.
After several decades of research, the question of whether or not the L1 plays a role in the process of acquisition, and, if so, what that role might be, is still a matter of ongoing debate in the field of Second Language Acquisition. Of particular interest are questions such as (1) is L1 influence restricted to the early stages of acquisition or are its effects pervasive, permeating every stage of development? (2) are the same effects found both in naturalistic and in formal learning contexts? (3) is transfer inevitable or are there certain factors which might (dis)favour it? (4) are different components of the grammar affected differently by crosslinguistic influence? Furthermore, these questions are not restricted to the L1 alone, as much recent research has provided ample evidence of L2 to L3 transfer, and also reverse transfer, in the domains of bilingual and multilingual acquisition.
