Full Title: Acquisition of Third Language Phonology 

Date: 11-Sep-2014 - 14-Sep-2014
Location: PoznaƄ, Poland 
Contact Person: Magdalena Wrembel
Meeting Email: magdala at wa.amu.edu.pl

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition; Phonetics; Phonology 

Call Deadline: 21-Nov-2013 

Meeting Description:

The workshop aims at bringing together scholars and researchers interested in a young and growing domain of third language (L3) phonology in order to promote this field to a wider audience at the congress of Societas Linguistica Europaea (SLE). It seeks to explore new methods and theoretical input for investigating and modeling third language phonological acquisition. 

Workshop Convenors:

Magdalena Wrembel (Adam Mickiewicz Univeristy, Poznan, Poland), magdala at wa.amu.edu.pl
Jennifer Cabrelli Amaro (Department of Foreign Languages, United States Air Force Academy, USA), Jennifer.CabrelliAmaro at usafa.edu

Call for Papers:

Research on L3 acquisition was triggered by empirical evidence for the fact that the process of acquisition of a foreign language is systematically different depending on whether another foreign language has been previously learnt or not. Moreover, there is a growing recognition that L3/Ln learners differ considerably from second language learners as they have a larger repertoire of linguistic and metalinguistic knowledge at their disposal. Third or Additional Language Acquisition has been recognized as a separate field of inquiry, however, research on the phonetic and phonological aspects has been rather limited to date.

The workshop aims to bridge this gap by bringing together scholars researching this understudied domain of third language (L3) phonology. The workshop seeks to explore new methods and theoretical input for investigating and modeling third language phonological acquisition. 

We invite submissions on diverse aspects of phonological acquisition of the third or additional language including, but not limited to:

- Theories / models of multilingual acquisition
- Speech perception / production
- Cross-linguistic influence
- Role of native vs. non-native languages 
- Factors conditioning L3 phonological transfer
- Methodological issues
- Pedagogical implications for foreign language pronunciation
Please, send a provisional 300 word abstract of your contribution by 21 November to workshop convenors so that we can submit a workshop proposal to the SLE Scientific Committee. The notification of acceptance/rejection of the workshop proposals will be given by 15 December 2013.

After/if our workshop proposal has been accepted, you will be requested to submit your full/final abstracts by 15 January 2014 and they will be subject to a standard reviewing procedure by the SLE Scientific Committee.

You can find further details concerning the conference and the submission of workshop proposals in the first call for papers at http://sle2014.eu/call-for-papers.
