Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Language Acquisition

Meeting Description:

Multimodal language corpora of spoken and signed languages are now widely and
extensively used in language acquisition studies. This has required new tools,
new research practices, new theories which has brought about ground breaking
changes in research in linguistics and in psycholinguistics. These recent
transformations, techniques and results need to be shared with a large community
of researchers and students in the field of language acquisition. Creating,
using, sharing, analyzing spontaneous oral data with the relevant tools for each
researcher's specific needs can only help improve and enrich national and
international research on language acquisition, and collective efforts are
needed to attain this goal.

A Workshop including tutorials and various presentations, will be organized by
the GDR 'Language, Oral Language and Cognition: Language Acquisition - New
Approaches' and funded by the CNRS. This workshop is designed to:

-Present and provide introductions to tools used for creating and analyzing
corpora of spontaneous oral (spoken and signed) language (separate tutorials
will target beginners and advanced corpora users);
-Present and discuss trends about tools for oral language data;
-Present and discuss trends about research using oral language corpora
