Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition

Call Deadline: 15-Jul-2012

Meeting Description:

The proposed workshop will reexamine the issue of native language transfer from three perspectives: two two-hour sessions of verbal communications will explore initial transfer and endstate transfer respectively, while a third two-hour session will invite a roundtable of L2 scholars with differing theoretical perspectives to evaluate the role of native language in L2A. Session 1 on the initial state considers whether it is a tabula rasa as for L1 infants, a version of the native grammar, or something in between. Session 2 considers what remains of the native language in a learner whose L2 has stabilized, and has resulted in the endstate of a highly advanced speaker. Workshop Session 2 will investigate areas of transfer, both positive and negative, in endstate learners.

Call for Papers:

The two refereed Sessions 1 and 2, call for one page abstracts with an additional page of references and examples. The abstracts are to be submitted on Session 1 Transfer in the initial state and Session 2 Transfer at ultimate achievement. The deadline for abstract submission will be July 15, 2012; electronic abstracts should be sent to Julia Herschensohn at herschenu.washington.edu. Please send one anonymous version and one version with contact information.
