support.

Central to the conference are methodological issues such as:

* strategies for an efficient support of lesser used languages,
* problems with theoretical approaches developed for major languages when
applied to lesser used languages and
* the cultural, economical and political specificity of a user group for which
computational resources are created.

Furthermore, the conference intends to promote the networking among participants
in order to enhance the exchange of information, experience and resources.

Date: 22-Jul-2005 - 23-Jul-2005
Location: Berne, Switzerland
Contact Person: Beat Siebenhaar
Meeting Email: Beat.Siebenhaargerm.unibe.ch

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition

Subject Language(s): German, Standard (GER)

Call Deadline: 15-May-2005

Meeting Description:

Workshop on the acquisition of German as a second language in a dialect
environment.

Im Workshop geht es um den Erwerb des Deutschen in der deutschsprachigen
Schweiz, aber auch z.B. in Oesterreich und in Gebieten Deutschlands, wo
Mundarten und Standardsprache nebeneinander stehen. Dieses Nebeneinander
verschiedener Varietaeten wird beim Zweitspracherwerb haeufig als sehr
problematisch empfunden, da der taegliche Input nicht oder nur teilweise dem
entspricht, was die Lernenden eigentlich lernen wollen: die deutsche Standardsprache

Wir freuen uns ueber Ihre Anmeldung - gegebenenfalls unter Angabe des Titels für
einen Vortrag (20 Minuten + 10 Minuten Diskussion) oder eine Thesenpraesentation
(10 Minuten) - bis zum 15. Mai 2005: Mail an Beat Siebenhaar
(beat.siebenhaargerm.unibe.ch).

Organisation:
Elke Hentschel (hentschelgerm.unibe.ch)
Korakoch Attaviriyanupap (attaviriyanupapgerm.unibe.ch)
Beat Siebenhaar (beat.siebenhaargerm.unibe.ch)
