Meeting Description:

Centre for Research in Language Development throughout the Lifespan (LaDeLi)

Social interaction is an intrinsic aspect of what makes us human, and language, both first (L1) and additional (L2) languages, is learned amidst communication exchanges where linguistic evidence is made available. The study and examination of the linguistic environment in general and the role of interaction as a component of that environment, in particular, have been a matter of great interest, controversy and debate for decades. However, the precise role, nature, contribution and relationship between interaction and language learning, development and loss remain elusive.

This innovative workshop aims to provide a unique opportunity for participants and leading experts from diverse theoretical perspectives to discuss a range of key issues relating to the role of interaction in language development and loss throughout the lifespan.

Keynote Speakers:
Prof. Annick De Houwer (University of Erfurt)
Prof. Rosamond Mitchell (University of Southampton)
Prof. Alison Wray (Cardiff University)

This workshop is part-funded by LaDeLi, and by the European Second Language Association (EuroSLA)
