Meeting Description:

The GALA Conference has been characterized over the years by a peculiar
comparative character, with talks ranging from research on L1, adult and
child L2, bilingual acquisition, to developmental and acquired language
pathologies of different sorts. The theoretically oriented studies on
language acquisition and language pathology has permitted significant
advances in these research areas, and at the same time has provided novel
kinds of evidence for the refinement of linguistic theory.

Within this trend of studies, the conference will be introduced by a
workshop to be held in the morning of Thursday September 8th, devoted to:
'Comparative Studies of Acquisition and Pathology: the Role of Linguistic

The main conference will focus on L1, L2, Bilingual Acquisition, Language
Pathologies in Phonology, Morphology, Syntax, Morphosyntax, Semantics,
Pragmatics in different languages and different settings, and on Sign
Language and Brain Imaging research for acquisition and pathology.

We encourage submissions on different areas and modes of first, second and
bilingual language acquisition and language pathology, on Sign language, on
