Second Language Vocabulary Acquisition Colloquium 

University of Haifa (Israel) / Leiden University (The Netherlands)

Under the auspices of EUROSLA 
(The European Second Language Association)

Leiden University, March 15-17, 2002

This colloquium is intended as a forum for the presentation and discussion of recent research on all aspects of vocabulary acquisition in languages other than L1: linguistic, psychological, social and educational. Particular attention will be given to the following issues:

  • The construct of vocabulary knowledge;
  • Ways of measuring vocabulary knowledge and development;
  • Contribution of technology to vocabulary research;
  • Institutional and naturalistic vocabulary acquisition contexts and their influence on the learning process;
  • The place of vocabulary in the development of specific language skills;
  • Contributions of the study of L2 vocabulary learning towards theories of language acquisition;
  • Beyond two languages: the processing of multiple lexicons.

The web site of the colloquium will soon provide the preliminary programme.

Registration fee: EUR 90,- (about USD 80,-)
