International Symposium on Bilingual Processing in Adults and Children (ISBPAC)

Conference URL: http://www.sowi.uni-kl.de/psycholinguistics/conference/

Language processing, the on-line study of the mental operations that occur while we comprehend or produce words and sentences, has gained considerable attention in recent years. Whereas substantial knowledge has been gathered on the mental processes involved in L1 processing, much less research has been conducted on bilingual and L2 processing in adults and children. The goal of this symposium is to bring together researchers who focus on bilingual and L2 adult and child processing. We aim to invoke discussions on key questions related to bilingual and L2 processing such as the existence of a default processing strategy, crosslinguistic influence in L1 and L2 processing, the role of linguistic distance between L1 and L2, the extent to which the mechanisms used in L1 processing are the same in L2 processing, and how processing can provide insights into the architecture and mechanisms of linguistic representation.
