Meeting Description:

In this workshop we aim to further the study of bi- and multilingual processing by bringing together researchers working on various aspects of language processing in bi- and multilingual subjects.

Call for Papers

The last 15 years or so brought extensive research on the representation and processing of language in bilingual subjects. Numerous models of the bilingual mental lexicon have been constructed (e.g. Kroll & Stewart 1994). There is agreement among researchers that the two languages of a bilingual person must be somehow integrated. With the advent of yet another language into the mind of the speaker, his/her linguistic processing changes not only quantitatively but also qualitatively, which makes multilinguals a new and particularly interesting research group. In recent years there have been a number of studies attempting to extend the scope of bilingualism research to include the processing of multiple languages (e.g. van Hell & Dijkstra 2002, Hall & Ecke 2003) and the processing of figurative language (e.g. Matlock & Heredia 2002).

We invite contributions on topics related to the following:

- bi/multilingual research methods
- on-line experimentation with multilinguals as a window into multiple language processing and storage
- contributions of theoretical insights from general linguistics to research into the multilingual lexicon
- cross-linguistic factors in multilingual processing
- figurative language (idioms, metaphor, simile, proverbs, irony)processing in bi/multilinguals
- differences between figurative language processing in L1 and L2

Deadline for submissions is April 21st, 2008. Please do not submit your proposal via the PLM website but send an abstract (no longer than 500 words, excluding references) directly to the session organizers.
