Meeting Description:

Grammar in Context, Foreign Language Acquisition and Teaching: The Noun Phrase

In the middle of the 1980's, research in second language (L2) acquisition had
been influenced by the different perspectives adopted on nominal determination
in linguistics. In the generative framework, L2 acquisition research had
paralleled the development of nominal determination with that of verbal
inflection. In the functionalist framework, mapping form and function for the
constituents of the noun phrase, together with operations of determination have
been the main focus of study. There hasn't been much connection between research
in L2 acquisition and the field of teacher education in L2. However, nominal
determination, number and gender have never ceased to be under focus in language
classes and many teachers who kept on hearing the same questions have tried to
answer some in pedagogical grammars and other textbooks.

This one-day event aims to see the emergence of different perspectives on the
grammar of noun phrases from different fields. L2 acquisition researchers will
present their results, based on data collected with students who solved complex
verbal tasks in French L2, the tasks designed according to the different levels
of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Catherine Carlo
will analyze data with Spanish L1 speakers, Cyrille Granget, Japanese L1
speakers, Henriëtte Hendriks, Chinese L1 speakers, Ursula Paprocka, Polish L1
speakers, and Mireille Prodeau, English L1 speakers, all L1s with a different
system and distance with French. Two psycholinguists will analyze the
acquisition process in French L1 & L2: Dominique Bassano will present the
developmental sequence in nomional determination in French L1 and Cheryl
Frenck-Mestre will focus more specifically on gender and phonological encoding,
contrasting L1 with L2 acquisition in French. Michel Charolles, specialist in
textual linguistics, will bring in the point of view of a linguist whose work on
reference and nominal determination has helped many in linguistics and beyond.

Cecile Bruley, who has been working for the Centre International d'Etudes
Pédagogiques (International Center for Research in Pedagogy), will give a survey
of how nominal determination, number and gender are presented in the main books
offered to both students and teachers.

This one-day event will end with a round table where everybody can contribute to
the debate on questions linked to learning and teaching the grammar of the noun
phrase in French as a foreign language.
