Call for extended abstracts

Workshop on Phonetic Learner Corpora

Satellite workshop of ICPhS at 12 August 2015 in Glasgow

Most of the data used to explore and explain phonetic variation in the speech of foreign

language learners was recorded on a small-scale in experimental research. Likewise

language learner corpora are usually based on written rather than on spoken data whereas

phonetically annotated corpora of various speech styles do not explicitly consider

language learners as speakers. However, we notice a growing number of research using

large-scale collections of phonetic learner data as well as the development and

investigation of full-fledged phonetic learner corpora.

The aim of this half-day workshop is to bring together researchers working with largescale

data sets of speech in a background of foreign and second language learning. The

targetaudience comprises colleagues setting up learner corpora, experts in phonetic

corpora, researchers with phonetic and phonological experiments in L2 acquisition, and

those with an interest in phonetic aspects of L2 teaching and non-native speech in general.

Invited Speakers

- Anke Lüdeling (Humboldt U Berlin, Germany)

- Sylvain Detey (Waseda U, Japan) and Isabelle Racine (Geneva U, Switzerland).


Interested colleagues are invited to submit an extended abstract by mid May. We also

plan to publish a special issue with contributions presented at the workshop. Please note

that the submission deadline for this special issue will be soon after the workshop.
