GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY ROUNDTABLE ON LANGUAGES AND LINGUISTICS

February 15, 16 & 17, 2003 (President Day's Weekend)
Georgetown University, Washington, D.C.

Language in Use:
Cognitive and Discourse Perspectives on Language and Language Learning

GURT 2003 will bring together research from various perspectives that
emphasizes ways in which cognitive factors and discourse factors shape
properties of language and of language learning

In recent years, there has been growing awareness of the importance of
studying language and language learning in its context of use.
Researchers who take a cognitive approach (broadly defined) and those
who take a discourse perspective have argued, often independently of
each other, that linguistic structure cannot be fully understood if
isolated from the study of how language is employed to create meaning.
Moreover, an increasing number of researchers involved in both first
and second language learning research have argued that language
learning is guided in crucial ways by the contexts of meaningful
communication in which language use is embedded. Overlapping strands
of investigation pursued by these researchers include: 1) the role of
psychological plausibility in developing theories of language and
language learning; 2) the connection between linguistic form and
function; and 3) the connections between language, language learning
and general properties of cognition.

Contributions that address the conference themes from the following
perspectives are especially welcome: Cognitive linguistics; cognitive,
functional, and discourse approaches to language learning ; discourse
approaches to language; functional and discourse approaches to
language teaching; and usage-based models of language.

Plenary speakers will include: 
Kathleen Bardovi-Harlig
Melissa Bowerman
Nick Ellis 
Adele Goldberg 
Michael Tomasello

Invited colloquia will include: 
"New Approaches to Discourse Markers" Deborah Schiffrin, organizer
"The Context of Bilingualism" Kendall King, organizer
