The study of language control among L2 learners
in a cognitive perspective raises various
questions: How does explicit (control) or
implicit (automatism) knowledge develop ? When
are these forms of knowledge activated and used
and what is the impact of their development on
the accuracy, fluency and complexity of the
output? How do learners control their output?
What are their strategies?
Moreover, recent studies have focused on the
control of two or more languages among
bilingual and plurilingual subjects. They show
that the latter, exactly like L2 learners, use
a given language while the other languages
remain active and can even compete among each
other (Bialystok et al, 2004; Poarch & Van
Hell, 2012; Van Hell & Tanner, 2012). So
the simultaneous use of one or several
languages requires a capacity to efficiently
control linguistic activity in one language
intentionnally chosen while avoiding possible
conflicts with the other languages.

Call for Papers:
We are pleased to invite participants to submit
abstracts (150 words) for communications
(papers and posters) during a one-day thematic
workshop that will take place at the Université
de Toulouse Le Mirail.
- What do L2 learners control?
- How do they control L2 production?
- And above all, when, how and why do they fail
to control it?
- At what level do interferences with other
known languages take place?
- What is the real impact of the learning or
practical context on cognitive mechanisms?
All these questions examine how resources and
difficulties are handled in the production and
comprehension of a second language.
