The 2006 meeting is the ninth installment of the Symposium series, which is designed to provide a forum where logicians and linguists can meet to share and discuss ideas and issues about how linguistics and logic influence each other, with the aim of promoting a fruitful cooperation. Preceding symposiums took place in Debrecen (1987), Hajduszoboszlo (1989), Revfulop (1990), Budapest (1992), Noszvaj (1994), Budapest (1998), Pecs (2002), and Debrecen (2004).

Symposium theme: information structure

The organisers invite papers proposing semantic/pragmatic analyses of empirical data illustrating the structuring of information in natural language, both at the sentence and the discourse level. The range of possible topics include (but is not limited to) the interpretation of topicalisation and focusing, the thetic/categorical distinction, the study of presuppositions, and the functions of discourse particles and discourse connectives.

Invited speakers:
Jonathan Ginzburg (King's College, London)
Marcus Kracht (UCLA)
Manfred Krifka (Humboldt University/ZAS, Berlin)
Barbara H. Partee (University of Massachusetts, Amherst)

The individual presentations are planned to last for 40 minutes (30 minutes for the talk and 10 minutes for discussion).

Notification of acceptance: April 20, 2006

Deadline for submission of papers for the proceedings: July 9, 2006

Venue, transportation:
The symposium, following the tradition of the first meetings in the 1980s, will take place in the Hungarian countryside, in a hotel with conference facilites, to provide the participants the possibility for discussion in a more informal setting. The venue of the 2006 symposium is Hotel Fauna, situated near Besenyotelek, 120 km east of Budapest (www.hotelfauna.hu). Hotel Fauna is at the edge of the Lake Tisza region, the second biggest lake of Hungary, offering plenty of opportunities for eco-tourism (with a bird nature reserve) and for a more traditional vacation (www.tisza-to-info.hu).

There will be a bus on the evening of August 23 taking participants from Budapest to the conference location. Public transportation is also available for travelling to and from Budapest, with a major railway station with direct (including Intercity) trains to and from Budapest 10 km from the conference site.

FIRST INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE ACQUISITION OF SPANISH AS A FIRST AND SECOND LANGUAGE

Facultad de Humanidades y Artes, Universidad Nacional de Rosario,
Rosario, Argentina
June 1, 2 and 3, 2006

First Communication: Call for Papers

We announce the organization of the First Internacional Conference on the Acquisition of Spanish as a First and Second Language, to be held in Rosario, Argentina, on June 1, 2 and 3, 2006.

This Conference is organized by the M.A. Program in Linguistic Theory and Language Acquisition, the Center for the Study of Language Acquisition, and the Center of Theoretical Linguistics, of the Facultad de Humanidades y Artes, Universidad Nacional de Rosario, Argentina.

Language contact and interaction in Latin America generate specific political, economic, educational and social situations. Transnational webs as the ones established through MERCOSUR create and make explicit language situations in which L2 Spanish plays a central role.

The study of languages in contact and of their contexts becomes increasingly necessary. Teaching Spanish as a Second Language is proposed through language academies in a more coordinated and explicit way than it used to be and gradually occupies an increasingly more prominent role in the field of Language Teaching.

The complexity of the linguistic situation generated demands that its study be conducted through a number of autonomous and interacting approaches. At the same time, this perspective has an impact on the studies of the acquisition and teaching of L1 Spanish in general.

Having this goal in mind, the First International Conference on the Acquisition of Spanish as a First and Second Language propose the study, discussion, and evaluation of Spanish as a First and Second Language from multiple perspectives, mainly but not exclusively, from the perspective of L1 and L2 Acquisition Linguistics, Linguistic Theory, Computational Linguistics, Sociolinguistics, Anthropological Linguistics,L1 Spanish Teaching, Foreign Language Teaching, Language and Education Policies, Government and NGOs Language Programs, and other areas linked to the study of language.

This Conference seeks the participation and interaction of specialists, teachers, and professionals in general in the areas mentioned above in order to create a specialized and collaborative environment for the study of Spanish.
