LAST CALL FOR PAPERS

We are calling for papers on the topic of Linguistic Typology and
Korean Language Acquisition. Accepted papers will be published in a
single volume in the Saffron Korean Linguistics Series (Eastern Art
Publishing, London, http://www.eapgroup.com).

One of the areas to which linguistic typology (and language
universals) can be usefully applied is language acquisition, be it
first or second language acquisition. The interaction between language
universals research and language acquisition research -- the
recognition of which goes back to Jakobson's Kindersprache, Aphasie
und Allgemeine Lautgesetze (1941) -- has been discussed in detail in
recent introductory texts on linguistic typology, e.g. J. J. Song's
Linguistic Typology: Morphology and Syntax (Pearson Education: 2001)
[Also see A. Giacalone Ramat (ed.) Typology and Second Language
Acquisition (Mouton de Gruyter: 2003).] The proposed volume seeks to
explore this in the context of Korean L1 and L2 acquisition data.

Some of the general issues to be dealt with in the volume include: the
role of language universals in explaining the L1 and L2 acquisition
processes or sequences; the role of language acquisition in the study
of language universals; L2 areas of difficulty that do not arise from
native language-target language differences; (re-)evaulation of
acquisition data in the light of recent developments in linguistic
typology; the role of language universals in L1 transfer; pedagogical
implications of the interaction between language universals research
and language acquisition research; and the like.

We are looking for original or unpublished papers that are not
simultaneously considered for publication elsewhere. Expressions of
interest in the form of a 250 word abstract should reach the editors
by 31 May 2003 (preferably in Word as an e-mail attachment). Authors
whose abstracts are accepted will be invited to submit full papers for
further consideration. All papers will be reviewed by independent
readers.

Editors of the proposed volume:
