 (Morpho)phonological acquisition
 in the light of current phonological theories

DATE: 2 March 2002
LOCATION: Warszawa (Warsaw)

Sponsored by the Institute of English Studies, University of Warsaw

 2nd Call for Papers

GLiP-4 is the second meeting in the GLiP series devoted to phonology
and morphophonology, this time with a focus on language acquisition.

We invite abstracts on the acquisition of phonology and
morphophonology from the perspective of current adult-based theories.
We welcome discussion of learnability issues as well as
theoretically-oriented analyses of acquisitional data. Although the
focus is on L1 phonology, abstracts concerning aspects of L2
acquisition will also be considered.

The workshop is meant as a contribution to the on-going debate on (1)
how successfully current advances in phonology and morphophonology can
be applied to account for what Menn (1983) terms "detours of the
unskilled learner", and (2) the role that the analysis of
developmental data can play in evaluation of competing adult-based
(morpho)phonological theories.

We would also like to draw some attention to the rarely addressed
problem of acquisition of languages with complex morphophonology, and
to test the common belief that acquisitional data from such languages
can shed light on how children come to terms with the abstract
phonological structure of the target language. In other words, we are
interested in how and when children internalize adult phonological
processes and representations, and in how the acquired adult-based
processes interact with reduction processes in their interim

The format of the workshop is 30 min for presentation + 15 min
question time. The language of the conference is English.

A volume of proceedings is also planned. See the GLiP pages at for details about the previous
proceedings volumes.

In cases when there is no need to use special phonetic symbols or
phonological representations/rules, we strongly encourage PLAIN TEXT

We regret to say that other formats will not be accepted.

Should the electronic version of the abstract need special phonetic
fonts apart from the SIL IPA fonts (, please
attach them as well. (We strongly discourage this practice though, and
reserve the right to ask for a resubmission in a different format.)

Those who submit abstracts in (*self-contained*!) (La)TeX should best
use the tipa.sty package. See our web pages for pointers to the

Barcelona English Language and Literature Studies: NEW FORMAT

Published by the English and German Department at the University of Barcelona,
the next issue of this journal (vol. 12) will be published on-line
and will be distributed by subscription.

Bells vol. 12: Call for Abstracts

An efficient program of foreign language instruction should obviously
go on beyond secondary education, both regarding the improvement of a
first foreign language as well as the introduction to a second or a
third language. To this respect, universities and language schools can
offer an appropriate context especially when the learning is powered
by: - self-directed learning - the development of autonomy - the use
of new technologies.

which will be published in 2002, is open to all those contributions
which deal with a topic related to the learning/teaching in higher and
adult education: - methodology and teaching innovations - evaluation
and planning - language acquisition - program administration, etc., as
well as to those contributions which deal with more specific issues of
self-learning, autonomy or new technologies applied to the teaching of
any foreign language.

The call is open to a number of contexts and several kinds of
contributions, which are listed below: - schools or faculties with a
language program for specific purposes (i.e., Engineering, Journalism,
Humanities, etc.) - university language schools - schools or
faculties where language specialists are trained (Linguistics,
Translation, Teacher training...) - Multimedia rooms, virtual
self-learning services, self-access centres - language schools
involved in adult aducation. Types of contributions: - formal studies
- case studies and action research - descriptions of innovative
experiences and results of surveys - conceptual and opinion articles -
interviews and book reviews.

We would like people interested in contributing to this volume to send
a one-page abstract of their work (in English, Spanish or Catalan),
together with a mailing and an e-mail address to
or to the address below no later than:

January 1st, 2002 Ram�n Rib� (editor) BELLS, Departament de Filologia
Anglesa i Alemanya Universitat de Barcelona Gran Via, 585 08007
Barcelona Once the abstract is received and within one month, authors
will be contacted to let them know about the evaluation of their
proposal. They will also receive the conventions to follow to write
their full-length contribution, which should be sent before the 15th
of May, 2002.
