Meeting Description:

Studies on second language (L2) learning often focus on teacher-student interaction in an institutional setting. However, it is well known that other types of interaction can help speakers learn a second language: for example, interaction between non-native speakers and interaction between native and non-native speakers outside the traditional context of the language classroom.

This workshop will focus on spoken interaction between speakers of different languages. We are particularly interested in inter-disciplinary and multimodal approaches to the topic. Some relevant areas of investigation are suggested in the (non-exhaustive) list below.

- Phonetics and phonology: Accommodation, fossilisation, phonetic correction (auto-correction and hetero-correction), foreigner talk, L1 interference
- Gesture: Gestures made by L2 learners, frame and stance, the use of gesture space by L2 learners
- Acquisition and didactics: Complexity, linguistic correction and fluency, meta-discourse
- Interaction and conversation analysis: Meaning negotiation and communicative strategies, code switching
- Psycholinguistics: Motivation, self-confidence, individual differences and variation
- Socio-cultural approaches to acquisition: Inter-cultural considerations, learning traditions, biases and expectations, linguistic and socio-cultural identity, savoir-être, languages in contact

Invited speaker: Prof. Ulrike Gut, University of Münster

Registration: Free

Participants are invited to present research that uses spoken language data.

As part of the workshop, we will also be running a session exploring data from the SITAF corpus. These data target the processes of interaction and acquisition during French-English tandem conversations.

A selection of data from the corpus will be made available to participants who might be interested in watching and/or analysing it. This selection will comprise video and audio extracts, as well as written transcriptions. It will be accessible as of mid-January (please register your interest by email).
