Meeting Description:

Learner Language, Learner Corpora - LLLC 2012 - an international
conference addressing learner language and language corpora will take
place from October 5-6, 2012 at the University of Oulu, Finland. This
conference is aimed at those who use electronic data in learner language
analyses, as well as those who study Finno-Ugric learner languages, their
acquisition and teaching.

The conference will be organised to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the
VIRSU project and to introduce the CoLLU project (Corpus study on
Learner Language Universals). VIRSU was originally a cooperative project
for teachers and researchers of Estonian and Finnish as a foreign
language. It has recently expanded its aims and thus seeks to create
connections between all linguists working with any of the Finno-Ugric target
(foreign or second) languages, or the language situations in the countries
where Finno-Ugric languages are spoken.

The CoLLU project in turn focuses on the identification of Learner
Language Universals that are present in a learner language regardless of
the learner's mother tongue. The project hosts the ICLFI Corpus, which is a
multi-mother tongue corpus of learner Finnish that is almost five years old.

The invited keynote speakers are
Professor Fanny Meunier (Centre for English Corpus Linguistics, Université
Catholique de Louvain),
Professor Charlotte Gooskens (Scandinavian Department, University of
Postdoctoral Researcher Minna Suni (Academy of Finland, University of

The languages of the conference will be Finnish and English.

December 31st 2011: Abstract submission
