Meeting Description:

Conference “Pronouns in development”
March, 20-23, 2014
NTNU, Trondheim - Norway

Recent research has shown that the acquisition of different kinds of pronouns undergoes several developmental stages. The investigation of these is therefore one major area of interest in recent psycholinguistic research, especially in comparison with adults.

Invited Speakers:

Dagmar Bittner (ZAS, Berlin)
Paul Ibbotson (Open University)
Jesse Snedeker (Harvard University)
Antonella Sorace (University of Edinburgh)
Ianthi Maria Tsimpli (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki & University of Reading)

Call for Papers:

We invite papers reporting experimental research on the topic, such as the processing and resolution of referential ambiguity in children, the development of reference and the role of non-linguistic factors (perceptual, visual and auditory) on pronoun resolution. Theoretical accounts of current research are also welcome.

Accepted talks will be 30 minutes (20 min. talk + 10 for question session).

The length of abstracts should not exceed 1 A4 page including references. Submission in PDF format is requested.

Important Dates:

Submission deadline: December 10, 2013
Acceptance notification: January 10, 2014
