Cognitive Approaches in Language Learning and Bilingualism


Linguists still categorize language learning and bilingualism according to traditional morphophonemic, syntactic and semantic features. But most of the linguistic forms and concepts cannot be explained alone by phenomena of the involved languages, kinds of acquisition phases or individual competence of the speakers. We still have insufficient knowledge about cognitive mechanisms behind language processing and the establishment and quality of form-function-relationships.

Of special interest is the discussion of relevant research in Cognitive Sciences explaining phenomena of language learning and bilingualism. The aim of the workshop is to introduce candidates of investigated data, which are probably involved in several cognitive processes of language acquisition.

We especially welcome work in progress on investigations of German as foreign/second language and German in bilingualism in research fields as

* morphology and word-formation
* syntax
* language production strategies (written and spoken language)
