Processability Theory (PT) as developed by Manfred Pienemann is a
prominent theory of second language acquisition. PT serves as a framework
for a wide range of research covering issues such as L2 processing,
interlanguage variation, typological effects on SLA, L1 transfer,
linguistic profiling and L2 assessment, stabilisation/fossilisation and
teachability. The PALART series serves as a platform for making current
research within the PT framework and its application to measurement and
teaching, as well as the interdisciplinary discussion of PT accessible to
both researchers and graduate students in the field. PALART is designed to
provide a thematic platform for the presentation of current high-quality
work within the PT framework. The thematic scope of the series reflects the
wide scope of theoretical, empirical and practical aspects of PT.
The first volume in the new series is:

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as
such can receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered
501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These
donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match
any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your
contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the
EMU Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple
administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without
costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company
operates such a program.
