Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition

Meeting Description:

Human language is the product of evolved mechanisms that develop in supportive
environments. To understand language, we need to improve present understandings
of evolutionary and developmental processes responsible for its emergence. This
conference, 'The Emergence of Language in the Child and in the Species,'
proposes to bring together leading scholars in the broad area of language and
communication, with a focus on developmental and evolutionary issues. Abstracts
will be presented in such areas as: language acquisition in children,
computational modeling, evolution of language, comparative studies, gesture and
sign language, biology of language and cognition. While papers on the main topic
are particularly welcome, individuals are encouraged to submit abstracts on any
subject in theoretical and applied linguistics.
