Tipo de congreso: 




15 al 16/03/2024




The ninth biennial conference on Current Approaches to Spanish and Portuguese Second Language Phonology (CASPSLaP) will be held at NC State University March 15 - 16, 2024. CASPSLaP brings together leading experts in the field of the second language acquisition (SLA) of Spanish and Portuguese pronunciation. The presentations will include a wide range of topics. By focusing on the breadth of approaches currently taken by scholars researching the SLA of Spanish and Portuguese phonology, this conference aims to present the state-of-the-art in second language phonological acquisition. In addition to the general session, there will also be a poster session, as well as an interactive, pedagogy-focused session called Ignite that addresses best practices in classroom pronunciation instruction.

The 2024 conference will highlight the themes of acquisition of dialectal variation and fine-grained phonetic traits, heritage language phonology, and social variation in second language phonological acquisition; however, abstracts are invited for presentations and posters on any topic related to the second language acquisition of the Spanish and Portuguese sound systems. Submissions are also invited for Ignite, a special session focused on pedagogy in second language pronunciation learning.
