Meeting Description: The 26th annual meeting of Formal Approaches to Slavic Linguistics (FASL-26) will take place at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on May 19-21, 2017. It will feature a special session on the Acquisition and Processing of Slavic Languages.

The invited speakers for the main session are Stephanie Harves (New York University) and Darya Kavitskaya (UC Berkeley).

FASL-26 will feature a special session on the Acquisition and Processing of Slavic languages. Research in linguistics is increasingly moving towards integrating theoretical, psycholinguistic and acquisition approaches. The question of whether processing and grammar are served by the same or different mechanisms is being addressed by both theoretical linguists and psycholinguists. At the same time, research in language acquisition is expanding to encompass both bilingual and monolingual development, and both atypical and typical language acquisition. The specific properties of Slavic languages, including rich inflectional paradigms and the relationship between word order and information structure, make them particularly interesting to study from the perspectives of both processing and acquisition. For the special session, abstracts are invited on theoretically informed studies that address the processing and/or acquisition (first or second, monolingual or bilingual, etc.) of one or more Slavic languages, and/or compare processing or acquisition of Slavic and non-Slavic languages.

The invited speakers for the special session on Acquisition and Processing of Slavic languages are Alexandra Perovic (University College London), Irina Sekerina (CUNY - College of Staten Island) and Natalia Slioussar (Higher School of Economics, Moscow).
