Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

Series Title: Cascadilla Proceedings Project
Description:

This volume contains 23 papers selected from the 7th Generative Approaches
to Second Language Acquisition Conference (GASLA 2004), which was held at
Indiana University in Bloomington, April 15-18, 2004. Sessions addressed a
range of empirical issues on L2 systems, including anaphoric relations,
argument structure, ambiguity resolution in L2 sentence processing, L2
phonology and morphological acquisition, and acquisition of semantic and
morphosyntactic properties. Topics discussed included the questions of the
initial state of L2 acquisition, the nature of grammars acquired by adults,
and differences and similarities between simultaneous and sequential
bilingualism in children. These issues are reflected in the papers included
in the proceedings. The complete table of contents is available at
http://www.lingref.com/cpp/gasla/7/ along with abstracts and the actual
papers in PDF format.

This volume has been published by Cascadilla Proceedings Project, a new
imprint created by Cascadilla Press. Proceedings from Cascadilla
Proceedings Project are published in library binding. There is also free
web access to all of the papers in the proceedings through our web site at
lingref.com.
