Call for papers


The Conference on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Linguistic Theory 1 encourages submissions dealing with theoretical and methodological issues shedding light on the overall understanding of language development and/or language deviation. The theme of this first year’s meeting “Theoretical and Applied methods for evaluating (a)-typical language” intends to promote research on all aspects of methodological issues involved in evaluating typical and a-typical language. Therefore, we welcome abstracts dealing with evaluation of theories, testing specific hypotheses, discussing the (dis)advantages of specific experimental tools and/or the effectiveness of certain baseline tasks. Within this spirit, not only abstracts providing experimental evidence for a linguistic hypothesis are welcome but also abstracts showing the shortcomings of a methodology leading to inconclusive results.

Domains: Cognitive studies, Theoretical & Applied Linguistics, Language Acquisition, Neurolinguistics, Psycholinguistics.
