(25-27 October 2018)

Topic for 2018:
“Theoretical and applied methods in studying multiple grammars”

The 2nd Conference on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Linguistic Theory aims to bring together scholars from theoretical linguistics, cognitive studies, applied psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, clinical linguistics and educational studies. Along with broad interdisciplinary issues, CIALT-2 will elaborate more on the theme “Theoretical and applied methods in studying multiple grammars” (language acquisition, L1-L2 interaction, multilingualism, heritage languages, language change as well as registers). 

The conference intends to promote communication among these disciplines by inviting research on these issues as well as the methodology and the tools used in accessing multiple grammars. Special emphasis will be put on evaluating the methods employed for accessing the evidence for a distinction between competence and performance, the issues that shed light on the ways multiple grammars emerge, the role of interlanguage in processing, and the evaluation of the input of each grammatical system.
