Meeting Description:

Relating Asymmetries between Speech & Comprehension in the Acquisition of
Language (RASCAL)

In the past decades, research on language acquisition has identified several
asymmetries between production and comprehension in various languages and in
various components of the grammar (e.g., with respect to word order, referring
expressions such as pronouns, tense/aspect, and contrastive stress). Many of
these asymmetries came as a surprise to their investigators, because no
asymmetries are expected under the traditional view of the grammar as a
direction-insensitive system of rules. The aim of this conference is to bring
together empirical and theoretical research addressing symmetries and
asymmetries in language production and comprehension.

Invited Speakers:
Lila Gleitman, University of Pennsylvania
Helen Tager-Flusberg, Boston University

Abstract Deadline: September 22, 2008

Groningen in January!
