The Role of Technology in L2 Pronunciation Research and Teaching, August 12-13, 2016
The 8th Pronunciation in Second Language Learning and Teaching Conference invites proposals for papers, posters, and teaching tips on all topics related to naturalistic pronunciation acquisition and classroom pronunciation learning. We especially welcome proposals for papers on L2 pronunciation and technology. Possible paper topics include the use of technology in research and/or teaching of L2 pronunciation, descriptive and experimental studies, re-examinations of key research findings (e.g., intelligibility, comprehensibility and accentedness) in new languages, and innovative approaches to teacher education. In addition to papers related to pronunciation and technology, the conference invites proposals for papers or posters on any aspect of pronunciation research, teaching and learning. Papers will be given in English.
Deadline for abstract submission is April 8, 2016. Notifications of acceptance will be made byMay 12.
Abstracts should be given a descriptive title, be double-spaced, have no more than 250 words (including references if included) and should specify the type of format desired:
- Presentation (20 minutes plus questions)
- Poster (a dedicated 90 minute poster session)
- Presentation/poster (either is ok)
- Teaching Tip (Teaching tips are restricted to 7 minutes).
Tips are in Round Robin format – a small group gathers around the person offering the tip; when the bell rings, individuals move to another table. Tips should be evidence-based.
Abstracts should be submitted through http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/PSLLT2016
