Meeting Description:

Please note: the new conference URL and updated information about preregistration.

A one-day workshop on the 'Acquisition of Modality' will be held at SOAS, University of London on 9 July 2011. The organizers are part of a research team working on a project on the acquisition of modal categories and modal markers (e.g. epistemic, deontic, utterance-level, etc.) by learners of Japanese, but we also invite specialists of other languages to join us and exchange ideas and research findings.

Previous research noted the lack of correspondence between the phenomena covered by the term modality in Japanese and in other languages (e.g. English), but we welcome the discussion of potentially incommensurate phenomena, and the acquisition of forms or cognitive categories that may be absent in learners’ mother tongue.

Participation fees: £15

The workshop is organized by Barbara Pizziconi (bp3soas.ac.uk) and Mika Kizu (mk89soas.ac.uk), and queries can be directed to either of them.

Details of the workshop are now available at:


All interested participants are invited to pre-register for this event (there is no charge for pre-registration).
