Call For Papers

The Acquisition of Tense, Aspect and Mood

Aston University

Saturday 9th - Sunday 10th February 2008

Guest speakers

Suzanne Schlyter (Lund)

Rafael Salaberry (University of Texas at Austin)

Aston University hosted in 2006-7 a 10-month Leverhulme Trust‚??s sponsored project ‚??Tense-Aspect Development in L2 French‚??.

This specialized thematic conference will mark its end and disseminates its findings. It will also bring together researchers who work worldwide in the areas of tense, aspect and mood acquisition in either first or second language acquisition. Although the organizing team has been working on L2 French only, the conference is by no means restricted to French, and papers about other languages ‚?? and especially less studied ones ‚?? are most welcome!

No theoretical background will be privileged so that diverse and even conflicting theories, approaches and backgrounds may lead to fruitful discussions.

The conference is open to renowned experts and established scholars, but also to young researchers and PhD students. Our aim is to create a synergy between experience and established research on the one hand, and enthusiasm and fresh ideas on the other so that our field as a whole benefits.

Anonymous abstracts in English or French should be sent to by the 15th October 2007. Notifications of acceptance will be sent mid-November.

It is hoped to publish a selection of peer-reviewed articles in Cahiers Chronos (Rodopi) that has expressed an interest in the project.

!!! Premier appel à contributions!!!

L‚??acquisition du temps, de l‚??aspect et de la modalit√©

Aston University

Samedi 9 f√©vrier ‚?? dimanche 10 f√©vrier 2008

Orateurs invités

Suzanne Schlyter (Lund)

Rafael Salaberry (University of Texas at Austin)

Aston University a accueilli en 2006-7 un projet de recherche de 10 mois financ√© par le Leverhulme Trust, ‚??Tense and Aspect Development in L2 French‚??.

Cette conf√©rence th√©matique sp√©cialis√©e marquera la fin du projet et diss√©minera ses r√©sultats. Elle rassemblera aussi des chercheurs qui, aux quatre coins du monde, travaillent sur le temps, l‚??aspect et la modalit√© dans l‚??acquisition de la langue maternelle ou d‚??une langue seconde. Bien que le comit√© d‚??organisation n‚??ait travaill√© que sur le fran√ßais, la conf√©rence n‚??est absolument pas limit√©e √† cette langue et des pr√©sentations consacr√©es √† d‚??autres langues ‚?? particuli√®rement les moins √©tudi√©es ‚?? sont particuli√®rement bienvenues !

Aucun paradigme théorique ne sera privilégié pour que des approches et des arrière-plans divers, voire conflictuels, donnent lieu à des discussions fructueuses.

La conf√©rence est ouverte aussi bien aux experts confirm√©s qu‚??aux jeunes chercheurs et aux doctorants. Notre but est de cr√©er une synergie entre exp√©rience et recherche √©tablie d‚??une part, et enthousiasme et id√©es neuves de l‚??autre.

Les r√©sum√©s anonymes en anglais ou en fran√ßais seront envoy√©s √† pour le 15 octobre 2007. Les notifications d‚??acceptation ou de rejet seront disponibles √† la mi-novembre.

La publication d‚??une s√©lection d‚??articles √©valu√©s est pr√©vue (peut-√™tre dans la collection cahier Chronos qui a manifest√© de l‚??int√©r√™t pour le projet).
