The Department of Linguistics at the United Arab Emirates University is organizing the first conference on Experimental Arabic Linguistics (EXAL-2013). The aim of the conference is to bring together scholars using experimental approaches to address long-standing or new theoretical issues pertaining to the study of language, focusing on Arabic. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to):
1) L1 acquisition in typically and atypically developing children
2) Language impairment and language therapy
3) Representations and processing in healthy and brain-damaged speakers (case studies, EEG, MEG, fMRI, fNIRS)
4) L2 acquisition from an experimental perspective
5) Representations and processing in Arabic heritage speakers
6) Experimental phonetics and laboratory phonology
7) Computational linguistics
8) Corpus-based linguistic studies
