|Meeting Description:||The 6th biannual conference on Generative Approaches to Language Acquisition - North America (GALANA 6) will take place on the University of Maryland campus in College Park, MD on February 19-21, 2015. This conference aims to provide an outlet for cutting edge work on language acquisition, relating results in first and second language acquisition to detailed hypotheses about developing grammatical representations, the mechanisms by which these representations are acquired, and the information processing mechanisms through which these representations are engaged in real time language use by first and second language learners.
Invited speakers include Liliana Sanchez (Rutgers) and Antonella Sorace (Edinburgh, Bilingualism Matters).
In addition to the general session, there will be a special session entitled “Learning in generative grammar: 50 years since the Evaluation Metric”.
Invited speakers for this special session include Janet Fodor (CUNY Graduate Center), Lisa Pearl (UC Irvine), Bruce Tesar (Rutgers), and Charles Yang (UPenn).
