X-PPL brings together the growing community of researchers working to expand the diversity of languages in the scope of experimental or corpus research on adults or acquisition. This research is driven by the recognition that typological diversity represents different opportunities to see processing and learning mechanisms at work. The bulk of processing and acquisition research represents only a small fraction of linguistic diversity, and this risks skewing both our theories and research questions.
X-PPL 2021 is hosted by the Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Language Evolution and the Department of Comparative Language Science and will be held online on Zoom, September 16 – 17, 2021.
Registration is open now!
