The joint Second Language/Psycholinguistics Research Group provides a forum for research students and staff to exchange ideas about and discuss current issues in second or additional language learning/acquisition, language development, language attrition (i.e. loss), language teaching as well as first language acquisition and language processing.
In our meetings, group members present work in progress such as plans for a PhD project or results from a pilot study, we try out data collection instruments or language teaching materials designed by group members, or members may give presentations on completed studies, e.g. to practise for a conference.
In addition, we read and discuss recent research papers that are of interest to group members in order to stay up to date with the latest developments in our field and to encourage an exchange of ideas between different theoretical perspectives (e.g. usage-based and generative) and different sub-areas (e.g. L2 and L1 learning).
