Call for Papers

Pronunciation in Second Language Learning and Teaching
October 7-8, 2011

The Confluence of Social Factors and Pronunciation: Accent, Identity, Irritation and Discrimination

Invited Speaker
Donald Rubin, University of Georgia
Athens, Georgia USA 
 
Second language pronunciation acquisition is widely considered to be difficult from a physical, cognitive and developmental point of view, but just as significant are the role of social factors. Native and non-native accents, even when they are intelligible, are not neutral, but are subject to social pecking orders which cause listeners to evaluate speakers in various ways. These evaluations may lead to discriminatory or preferential treatment, and they may even affect speakers ability to be audible, to construct their identities, and to successfully acquire a new language (Miller 2006).
 
This conference will provide a forum for discussions of how social factors influence and are influenced by pronunciation.  Possible paper topics may include descriptive and experimental studies, discussions of instructional approaches that emphasize social factors, and case studies of the interaction of social and linguistic factors in the development of oral skills. 
 
In addition to papers related to how social factors impact the learning of pronunciation, how accent affects social acceptance and the results of acceptance (or lack thereof), how irritation is related to intelligibility, and how interlocutors' reactions can be improved, this third annual conference invites proposals for papers or poster presentations on any aspect of pronunciation research, teaching and learning. Papers will be given in English, but papers addressing the teaching and learning of pronunciation for any language are encouraged.
 
Presenters will be invited to submit their papers for a peer-reviewed, on-line proceedings of the conference.
 
Please submit a 250-word abstract by April 1, 2011 to the following site:

http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/PSLLT2011 

Acceptances will be sent out by May 1, 2011.  Please specify whether you would like your abstract to be considered as a paper or a poster.

NOTE:  The conference will be held concurrently with the Second Language Research Forum conference (SLRF) and will include a joint colloquium with SLRF entitled 'Social influences on the acquisition of L2 phonetics and phonology'
