Meeting Description:

The Workshop on 'Writing Systems: Analysis, Acquisition and Use' will be held at Birkbeck, University of London, on 22nd November 2008.

This one-day workshop will bring together researchers working on writing systems in a variety of fields, ranging from linguistics to neurolinguistics, from sociolinguistics to psycholinguistics. The workshop will open with an introduction session, where specialists will introduce writing systems research in linguistics, neurolinguistics, psycholinguistics and sociolinguistics. The body of the workshop will then consist of empirical research reports. Participants will present their latest research on the analysis, acquisition and use of a variety of writing systems.
