Meeting Description:

(Psycho)linguistic Approaches to Language Contact, Bilingualism and Code Switching

University of Agder
August 24-26, 2011

This course is designed for PhD students in linguistics. It is a part of the PhD course program within the National Research School in Linguistics and Philology, but open to all PhD students. It is a 5 ECTS course, with 3 ECTS to be granted on the basis of regular and active participation, and 2 ECTS on the basis of a ca. 10-page essay.


Marianne Gullberg, Professor of psycholinguistics, Lund University, Sweden

Rosemarie Tracy, Professor of English Linguistics, University of Mannheim, Germany

In her four lectures, Marianne Gullberg will introduce two methodological approaches to bilingualism studies in order to discuss theoretical issues of 'knowledge' vs. real-time use of that knowledge, multimodality, and the status of monolingual, native norms. She starts by discussing online vs. offline methods for studying bilingualism more generally. In the second lecture, Gullberg focuses on online approaches to code-switching in particular looking both at mind and brain. In the third lecture, she turns to multimodal approaches to bilingualism. She first introduces gestures to show how they can shed light on linguistic issues. She then discusses bimodal bilingualism in sign language. In the last lecture, she focuses on crossmodal and crosslinguistic influences, to discuss the status of the monolingual native speaker norm.

Rosemarie Tracy's series of four lectures focuses on theoretical and empirical issues in language contact research. Tracy will first identify a range of typical phenomena (borrowing, loan translation, code-switching, attrition as a result of language contact) and discuss the theoretical challenges, both from a typological perspective (taking into account similarities and differences between languages) and from a sociolinguistic and psycholinguistic point of view (functions of mixing, what does mixing tell us about speech production, competition and monitoring?). The data discussed stem from naturalistic case studies with German immigrants in the U.S. (oral and written data) and from children growing up with English and German as two simultaneous first languages.
