The Estonian Association for Applied Linguistics (EAAL) and AILA-Europe welcome You to the 8th Junior Researchers Meeting in Applied Linguistics (JRM 2016) to be held in Tallinn, the beautiful capital of Estonia, from Thursday 19 May 2016 to Saturday 21 May 2016. The Conference will be hosted by Tallinn University in association with the Estonian Association for Applied Linguistics (EAAL) and the Institute of the Estonian Language (IEL).
The JRM 2016 follows the traditions of previous meetings of bringing together young researchers in Applied Linguistics to present their research, both the final results as well the work in progress, and to communicate interactively and informally.
The JRM 2016 will focus on Applied Linguistics as a broad area of studies in language use and application of linguistic knowledge in society. A paper may present also work in progress. Abstracts which address the conference theme will be particularly welcome.
The JRM 2016 will host the Workshop on AILA/AAAL Model to help national AILA affiliates to develop their visibility (presented by Dr. Aneta Pavlenko and Dr. Daniel Perrin).
Dr. Scott Jarvis (Ohio University, Athens, Ohio, USA) -- How do crosslinguistic similarity and learners’ cognitive capacities affect their ability to process and retain target-language input?
Dr. Aneta Pavlenko (Temple University, Philadelphia, Immediate Past President of the American Association for Applied Linguistics) -- Linguistics in the courtroom
Dr. Jelena Kallas (Institute of the Estonian Language, Tallinn) -- Lexicography at a crossroads
