Meeting Description: The Utrecht Institute of Linguistics OTS will be hosting a two-day workshop on ‘Learner corpus based approaches to second language acquisition’ on 31 March – 1 April, 2017.
As recently put by Myles (2015), “second language researchers have been rather slow in taking advantage of learner corpora and their associated computerised methodologies (…), and LCR (Learner Corpus Research) is not always fully informed by SLA research, making collaboration between the two fields sometimes more of a wish rather than a reality”. The main objective of the workshop is to bring together SLA and LCR specialists to examine the usefulness of learner corpus data for second language research and to assess the relevance of SLA theory for learner corpus design and analysis.

We are pleased to announce that the following speakers have already accepted our invitation to give a talk at the conference:
