Call for Papers

The symposium welcomes submissions for all types of bi/multilinguals related to linguistic acquisition and processing and for studies examining the role bi/multilingualism plays in (neuro)cognition. This includes early and late bilinguals, L2 and Ln learners, all domains of language (syntax, morphology, semantics, phonology, the lexicon and discourse/pragmatics, and their interfaces) and language related neurocognition, employing on-line (e.g., self-paced reading or listening, eye tracking, ERPs, neuroimaging techniques) and offline methods. 

Topics include but not limited to:
Morphological, syntactic, phonetic, phonological, lexical processing
Crosslinguistic influence in bilingual speech production and comprehension
Cognitive consequences of bi-/multilingualism
Language processing in attrition
Implications of bi/multilingual language processing for teaching
Neuroscientific studies of bilingual processing
Multimodal language and communication
