Meeting Description:

The conference PPLC 13 ‘Phonetics, Phonology and Language Contact’ is a satellite event of Interspeech 2013 (http://www.interspeech2013.org/) which aims to bring together students and researchers working in the field of language acquisition, bilingualism and language contact situations. It distinguishes itself from other conferences addressing these issues by wanting to provide a forum for dialogue and exchange between researchers working on second language acquisition, on the one hand, and researchers interested in multilingualism or in language varieties used in contact situations (for example, English or French spoken in Africa) on the other hand. The possibility of comparing the characteristics of varieties emerging from language contact with the characteristics of varieties used by language learners will allow us to gain new insights on a range of linguistic questions, including among others: Which linguistic elements are acquired most easily, which elements are the ones most likely to disappear in contact situations or in cases of attrition, how to evaluate the complexity of the languages of the world, what impact can this knowledge have for teaching foreign languages?

The conference will be held at the General Wallonia-Brussels Delegation in Paris (274, Boulevard Saint-Germain, 75007 Paris), and will take place from Wednesday, August 21, 2013 (2:00 p.m.) to Friday, August 23, 2013. The conference will include several oral and poster sessions as well as a half-day tutorial focusing on topics related to the development of resources for working on the phonology and phonetics in language contact situations (tools, transcription systems, construction of corpora, etc.).

The keynote speakers of the conference are:

Catherine Best, University of Western Sydney
Ulrike Gut, University of Münster
Paul Iverson, University College London
Sabine Zerbian, University of Potsdam

Call for Papers:

We invite submissions that deal with the following topics (non-exhaustive list):

- Second language acquisition and second language learning (description and error analysis, perception and production of foreign languages, factors that influence variation between learners, learning tools and techniques)
- Linguistic description of language contact varieties
- Multilingualism
- Linguistic development in contact situations
- Attrition
- Etc.

We invite submissions of abstracts for 30 minute oral (including questions) and poster presentations. Abstracts should be submitted by March 5, 2013, in PDF format using the following EasyChair submission site:

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pplc2013

Proposals will be evaluated anonymously by at least two reviewers. Abstracts should be submitted in English or French, the official languages of the symposium will be English and French.

Soon after the conference, keynote speakers and selected authors will be invited to submit a revised and extended version of their presentation for publication in an edited volume (Peter Lang or CIPA).
