Tools and Research based on Language Acquisition Corpora

Date: 18-Nov-2010 - 19-Nov-2010 Location: Paris, France Contact: Christophe Parisse Contact Email: Meeting URL:〈=fr

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Language Acquisition

Meeting Description:

Multimodal language corpora of spoken and signed languages are now widely and extensively used in language acquisition studies. This has required new tools, new research practices, new theories which has brought about ground breaking changes in research in linguistics and in psycholinguistics. These recent transformations, techniques and results need to be shared with a large community of researchers and students in the field of language acquisition. Creating, using, sharing, analyzing spontaneous oral data with the relevant tools for each researcher's specific needs can only help improve and enrich national and international research on language acquisition, and collective efforts are needed to attain this goal.

A Workshop including tutorials and various presentations, will be organized by the GDR 'Language, Oral Language and Cognition: Language Acquisition - New Approaches' and funded by the CNRS. This workshop is designed to:

-Present and provide introductions to tools used for creating and analyzing corpora of spontaneous oral (spoken and signed) language (separate tutorials will target beginners and advanced corpora users); -Present and discuss trends about tools for oral language data; -Present and discuss trends about research using oral language corpora
