Call for papers

Researchers interested in third language (L3) phonology are invited to participate in a dedicated workshop to be held at the 2014 congress of Societas Linguistica Europaea (link no longer active). The workshop, which will be convened by Magdalena Wrembel (Adam Mickiewicz University) and Jennifer Cabrelli Amaro (Department of Foreign Languages, United States Air Force Academy), will focus on new methods and theoretical input for investigating and modelling the acquisition of L3 phonology.

Submissions are invited for papers on the phonological acquisition of the third or additional language. A non-exhaustive list of topics includes:

  • 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

Anonymous abstracts (400-500 words, exclusive of references), discussing research questions, approach, method, data and (expected) results, are to be submitted by 15 January 2014, using the Submit Abstract form (link no longer active) available at the SLE2014 website. Notification of acceptance will be given by 31 March 2014. Additional information can be provided by contacting the workshop convenors directly.
