Description

ALS House Scientific Publications and the Research Centre for Applied Languages and Linguistics will be organising the 1st International Conference on Language Education and Research (LERC2019) which is scheduled to take place in Athens, Greece, between 28 and 29 of September, 2019.

The theme of the conference is Language Learning and the Evolution of Linguistic Variation and is considered an apt topic at this time for a number of reasons. Firstly, linguistic universals arise from the interaction between the processes of language learning and language use. Secondly, the use of language during interaction can reshape linguistic systems. Thirdly, linguistic features which are easier to learn or which offer advantages in processing and/or communicative utility should be over-represented cross-linguistically, suggesting that linguistic universals arise from the interaction between the processes of language learning and language use.

Since this is the 1st International Conference on Language Education and Research taking place in Greece, we are eager to make it an academic platform for exchanging ideas, projects and scientific research between aspiring academics, well-known researchers, teachers, university students through the submission and presentation of high-quality contributions.

The following two keynote speakers of this conference will be presenting in Greece for the first time:

Suzanne Flynn, Professor of Foreign Languages and Linguistics, MIT, Department: Linguistics and Philosophy

Dora Alexopoulou, Principal Research Associate, Education First Research Lab for Applied Language Learning (EF Research Lab), University of Cambridge, Department: Theoretical and Applied Linguistics
