Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition

Call Deadline: 30-Sep-2005

Meeting Description:

Language acquisition in typically developing children and children with a language delay or specific language impairment.

The general goal of the colloquium is to promote research on early language acquisition using an interdisciplinary approach combining linguistics, psycholinguistics, and neuroscience. This theme will be tackled at the phonological, lexical, semantic and syntactic levels. More specifically, the colloquium will cover the following topics:

- Theoretical perspectives in language acquisition
- Genetic/environmental contributions to language acquisition
- Brain structure and functions involved in language processing in infants and children
- Language delays and impairments

A secondary aim of the colloquium is to promote the careers of junior scientists (students/graduate students/post-docs/fellows) working in the subject area by providing them with the opportunity to present their work as a short talk or poster alongside established researchers. A limited number of scholarships are available.
