The First Tecahers College, Columbia University Roundtable in Second Language Studies (TCCRISLS)


Second Language Acquisition of Chinese


October 1-2, 2010


This first TCCRISLS provides a forum to address issues specifically related to the acquisition of Chinese as a second language. To that end, we welcome proposals in the following areas:

* Learners' processing of input 

* Learners' output-based learning 

* Learners' response to pedagogical intervention 

* Learning across linguistic domains 

* Characteristics of learner language and learners' developmental trajectories 

* Learners' context of acquisition: classroom, naturalistic, immersion, and study abroad 



Plenary Speakers


Nick Ellis (Professor, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor)

"Second Language Cognition" 



Boping Yuan (University Senior Lecturer, University of Cambridge)

"Second Language Acquisition of Chinese at a Semantics-Syntax Interface: Evidence from Chinese Wh-Words Used as Existential Polarity Words"
