Message 2: Advanced Learner Varieties, Workshop at the annual meeting of the German Society of Linguistics
Date: 11-May-2005
From: Patrick Grommes <Patrick.Grommesrz.hu-berlin.de>
Subject: Advanced Learner Varieties, Workshop at the annual meeting of the German Society of Linguistics



Full Title: Advanced Learner Varieties, Workshop at the annual meeting of the
German Society of Linguistics

Date: 22-Feb-2006 - 24-Feb-2006
Location: Bielefeld, Germany
Contact Person: Patrick Grommes
Meeting Email: Patrick.Grommesrz.hu-berlin.de

Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Call Deadline: 15-Aug-2005

Meeting Description:

We invite proposals for a workshop dedicated to the study of Advanced Learner
Varieties (ALV). The workshop aims at bringing together results originating from
diverse research interests and different methodological approaches, especially
second language acquisition research and corpus linguistics. The workshop will
take place at Bielefeld University (Germany) from February 22 to 24, 2006 and
will be organized as part of the annual meeting of the German Society of
Linguistics (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sprachwissenschaft - DGfS).

According to Klein and Perdue (1997), the Basic Variety is a developmental stage
in natural L2-acquisition that allows L2-learners to comply with all relevant
communicative tasks. As a result, many learners fossilize at this stage.
Advanced L2-learners leave behind the Basic Variety and achieve one of the
higher stages of the so-called Post-BV. Advanced Learner Varieties of this kind
are the subject of a growing number of studies in L2-acquisition as well as in
corpus linguistics. Acquisitional studies have been dedicated inter alia to
negation, finiteness, and focus particles. Although most research in this area
has been based on empirical studies of different scale, recently scholars have
also conducted experimental studies.

Corpus linguistics-based approaches, on the other hand, provide an efficient
means for identifying preferred patterns in learner languages on a broad data
basis (Granger et al. 2002). By these means, typical features of different
acquisitional stages can be described and analyzed. From a technical
perspective, the data are stored and edited in so-called learner corpora. For
the German speaking research, we must concede that there exist a number of
smaller corpora that have been compiled for singular studies, but which can
hardly be compared or combined due to lack of common standards of documentation.

In the workshop, we wish to discuss different ways of overcoming the
fore-mentioned deficit against the background of findings concerning
developments in ALV. Therefore, we invite submissions from corpus linguistics,
L2-acquisition, language teaching and language learning research that focus on
different aspects of documentation, description, and explanation of Advanced
Learner Varieties.

Proposals (paper title and one page abstract) should be sent to one of the
organizers (see below) by e-mail. Please send the proposal as an anonymous
attachment (preferably as .rtf-file). To be fully considered, proposals must
arrive by August 15, 2005.

We invite proposals in German as well as in English. Please not that - in case
of acceptance - the language chosen for the proposal will also be the language
of presentation.
