Linguistic Field(s): Language Acquisition 

Call Deadline: 15-Jan-2011 

Meeting Description:

Variation can take many forms: variations among individuals, variations during
development, and/or variations across languages or language families at
comparable ages or in comparable learning situations.

The conference has two main goals. The first one is to examine all types of
variations during language acquisition in order to show their implications for
our understanding of the acquisition process and their use in various contexts.
Variation phenomena will be examined mainly for the acquisition of oral or
signed languages, and in its disorders, in relation to other communicative
dimensions (for example, context, interaction, co-verbal gestures). The second
aim of the conference will be to stress the usefulness of comparative approaches
in the study of variations for language acquisition. Such perspectives include
various types of comparisons, which are sometimes combined, among different
languages (including within a typological perspective), different types of
acquisition (first and second language acquisition, by the child or by the
adult, early or late bilingualism?), as well as different populations (autism,
aphasia, SLI?) whose atypical acquisition paths can shed light on the
development of more typical children and adult learners. 

The study of variation in a comparative perspective can address many questions
debated in language-related research in the cognitive sciences: the relative
weight of constraints from cognitive and linguistic systems, the impact of
specific properties of source and/or target languages, endogenous processes
underlying the acquisition path of particular learners, the existence of a
critical period for language acquisition. Applied research will also be
discussed, particularly in teaching contexts (teaching first and second
languages) and in clinical contexts (helping patients with disorders in oral
