Multiple language acquisition is a relatively new research area which is now
gaining more attention. This conference, the 'Fifth International Conference on
Third Language Acquisition and Multilingualism', proposes to bring together
researchers who are interested in the area of multilingualism. Abstracts are
welcome in any area related to multilingualism (plurilingualism), ie,
acquisition, use, maintenance, and attrition of 3rd, 4th, 5th... languages, such
as: speech processing in multilinguals, psycholinguistics and multilingualism,
neurolinguistics and multilingual learners, multilingualism and affect,
multilingualism and language policies, sociolinguistics and multilingualism,
multilingual families, multilingual minorities/majorities, literacy in multiple
languages, and education in multiple languages.

The University of Stirling is set on a beautiful campus near the historic city
of Stirling, 50km northwest of Edinburgh. This is the first time the conference
is to be held in the UK. Previous conferences have been held in Innsbruck in
Austria (1999), Leeuwarden-Ljouwert in The Netherlands (2001), Tralee in the
Republic of Ireland (2003), and Fribourg/Freiburg and Biel/Bienne in Switzerland
(2005).
