Seminarios cognitivos – Adquisición Neuronal del Lenguaje

Seminarios cognitivos – Primer encuentro de 2021
Lunes 6 de septiembre a las 18:00 hs.

En esta ocasión, la Dra. Marcela Peña, Directora del Laboratorio Neurociencias Cognitivas de la Universidad Católica de Chile, disertará sobre la Adquisición Neuronal del Lenguaje.

¿Qué saben los niños y niñas del lenguaje al nacer y cómo aprenden su lengua materna aparentemente sin hacer esfuerzo? Nuestras investigaciones han querido avanzar en estos temas desde una perspectiva de ciencia básica, pero también con la mirada de la ciencia aplicada. En la conferencia esperamos discutir algunos de los hallazgos recientes sobre las habilidades cognitivas de niños pequeños, específicamente el rol de la actividad motora y la integración audiovisual como mecanismos que sustentan la adquisición del lenguaje.

Call For Papers: Contact, Acquisition, and Change

Call For Papers: Contact, Acquisition, and Change

We welcome submissions to a CEL special issue that focuses on situations of language contact and relates them to processes of language acquisition and/or change. Manuscripts may consider any natural language and focus on different levels of analysis (lexical, phonetic-phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic, discourse and pragmatics). There are no restrictions on the theoretical-methodological framework of the contributions, except that it must deal appropriately with the thematic topics proposed for the issue. Manuscripts may be written in Portuguese, English, or Spanish.

Many Paths to Language (MPAL) – Max Planck Institute

22 OCTOBER 2020 10:00 – 23 OCTOBER 2020 18:00

Children show astonishing variation in the way they acquire their native language(s); each developmental milestone in both production and comprehension is marked by meaningful individual differences.This 2-day online workshop focuses on meaningful differences in the way children acquire language. It will explore (a) multiple sources of variation in early language development, including: children’s linguistic and cultural environments, their cognitive maturation, and the structural properties of the languages they are acquiring, alongside (b) the implications of this variation for the mechanisms that drive and support native language acquisition, given the overall robustness of learning in the face of this variability.
The workshop will also include some live sessions aimed at advancing interdisciplinary discussion.

Invited speakers
Gabriella Vigliocco (University College London)
Andrea Ravignani (MPI for Psycholinguistics)
David Barner (University of California, San Diego)

Please note that, due to COVID-19: The workshop will take place fully online.

Abstract submission is closed as of July 1st, 2020. Authors were notified of presentation decisions before August 15th, 2020.

The workshop will take place ONLINE on October 22nd–23rd, 2020, hosted virtually by the Max Planck Institute in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Language Acquisition; Phonetics; Phonology; Psycholinguistics

Meeting Description: The International Symposium on Prosody and Bilingualism aims at being a space for interesting discussions on methodological and theoretical aspects of experimental research at the intersection between bilingualism, phonology and phonetic studies, especially regarding prosody. The speakers are researchers with different academic backgrounds and from different parts of the world who develop original and innovative works in the area. There will be a lecture per week, every Thursday, from 2PM until 4PM (Brazilian Time). The lectures will be given in three languages: Portuguese, Spanish and English.

Conference on Language Acquisition in Romance Languages

Plenary Speakers

Anna Cardinaletti
Natascha Müller
Laurice Tuller

The Conference on Language Acquisition in Romance Languages intends to gather people working on the acquisition of language from a generative perspective. Usually the local organizers of every edition publish a collection based primarily on papers from the workshop. Papers are selected on the basis of blind-refereing and their contribution to specific themes of particular interest arising from the workshop. Papers are invited for oral and poster presentations in the area of the acquisition of Romance languages. All topics in the fields of (typical and impaired) first and second language acquisition from a generative perspective will be considered. Presentations will be 20 minutes long, followed by 10 minutes for discussion. The best abstracts will be published in the new Journal “Words”, a Journal on Language Acquisition, Processing and Disorders.

Authors are invited to submit an abstract (in English) for review. No more than two first-authored abstracts may be submitted. Abstracts must be at most one page long on an A4 with one-inch margins and typed in 12-point font. An optional second page may include data and references. Abstracts must be anonymous. Please indicate if you wish to submit for the main session or the workshops.

Abstracts should be submitted via e-mail as a word attachment to the following address: Please, name your word file with the first author’s surname (e.g., brown.doc), use ‘Romance Turn Abstract’ in the Subject header and include the information in (1) – (7), which should constitute the body of the message.

1. Name(s) of author(s)
2. Affiliation(s)
3. Title of talk
4. Topic keywords
5. Event: Main session, Workshop on Clitic Pronouns, Workshop on Locality
6. E-mail address(es)
7. Postal address of first author

Authors may submit up to two first-authored abstracts.

Extended deadline for receipt of abstracts: 15th February 2021. Authors will be notified of acceptance by 23th February 2021.

Workshop on the acquisition of Locality
Facing Locality will take place during the Romance Turn in Ibiza-Eivissa. This workshop intends to gather people working on any aspect of syntax that may involve locality effects. Nowadays there are theoretical explanations that assume that elements in the sentence are generated in situ and other explanations that assume movement. In case of movement, we can find Locality effects that restrict the interpretation of traces. All topics on any aspect that might involve locality effects and its acquisition will be considered: head movement, operator movement, Wh-questions, Relative Clauses, Pronouns, Anaphora …

Workshop on the acquisition of Clitic Pronouns
Meeting Clitics will take place during the Romance Turn in Ibiza-Eivissa. This workshop intends to gather people working on any aspect of the acquisition of clitic pronouns. Nowadays there are theoretical explanations that assume that clitics are morphemes of the verb and other explanations that assume that they are constituents in the sentence. Also, some proposals assume that clitics have their own designated position, while others assume that they move. With respect to the acquisition of clitics, some studies find clitic omission, sometimes depending on linguistic properties (e.g. participle agreement, object drop). All topics on clitic pronouns and its acquisition will be considered.
