Meeting Description:

The topic of the conference Variation in language theory and language
acquisition is inspired by the idea that every speaker shows variation
in his/her use of language. Within the field of language variation
questions like the following are relevant. What is the significance of
variability with respect to language theory? What does one mean by
varieties in language acquisition? How do uniformity and variation
relate to each other in the language system and language acquisition?
How does one explain differences in variability in child language and
foreign language acquisition? The Colloquium will be organised by the
departments of German and Linguistics. The conference languages
traditionally are English, German and French. Presentations in
parallel sessions are expected to be 20 minutes long with an
additional 10 minutes for questions afterwards. On Friday there will
be also a poster session. The proceedings with the full papers will be
published.

The deadline for submitting an abstract is 1 January,
2004. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by 31 January 2004.
