The PLA Symposium 2009 endeavors to provide graduate students from various

inside and outside their respective disciplines. This year, we will have a
special panel on language acquisition as part of the Symposium. Accepted papers
will be considered for publication in the next issue of the PLA Working Papers.

Special Session: Language Acquisition
Is there universality in language acquisition? What is the role of the first
language in second language acquisition? What is the role of UG? How does
language acquisition research contribute to theoretical frameworks? The special
session aims to address some of these questions from theoretical, experimental,
and pedagogical viewpoints. We are especially interested in hearing papers on a
variety of linguistic subfields on the topic of language acquisition. The
special session will be followed by a general discussion.
