Workshop on Linguistic Convergence in Bilingualism and Language Contact
November 10, 2005, The Pennsylvania State University
Plenary Speakers: James Emil Flege and Antonella Sorace

http://www.outreach.psu.edu/C&I/Linguistics/

Abstracts are invited on original and unpublished research on all aspects in the
domain of linguistic convergence of Spanish, Portuguese or other Iberian
languages in contexts of bilingualism and language contact, including, but not
limited to: phonological convergence, lexical convergence, syntactic
convergence, semantic and discourse convergence.

The workshop will feature two plenary addresses by prominent researchers:

James Emil Flege, Univeristy of Alabama, whose work is focused on interaction of
first and second language sound systems

Antonella Sorace, University of Edinburgh, whose principal research interest is
the development and representations of syntactic knowledge in adult second
language acquisition and attrition.

The workshops will be incorporated within a broader context of linguistic
activity at The Pennsylvania State University: the Workshop on Language
Processing and the joint meeting of the Hispanic Linguistics Symposium and the
Conference on the Acquisition of Spanish and Portuguese as First and Second
Languages, to be held November 10-13, 2005. These workshops and symposia feature
plenary addresses by Manuel Carreiras (Universidad de la Laguna), Jose Ignacio
Hualde (University of Illinois), Antonella Sorace (University of Edinburgh),
Almeida Jacqueline Toribio (The Pennsylvania State University), and Juan
Uriagereka (University of Maryland).

Abstract deadline: June 1, 2005.

Abstracts for the Workshop on Linguistic Convergence must be at most one page
