Language Acquisition Reading Group (LARG)

The Language Acquisition Reading Group is a research group intended to foster and develop research in first or second language acquisition, as well as related issues such as first language attrition and aphasia. All theoretical approaches are welcome, though there is an emphasis on research in the linguistic/psycholinguistic tradition. The Reading Group provides graduate students with an opportunity to receive feedback on research, either before or after data collection. This is also an excellent opportunity for students to give a practice talk/poster presentation in preparation for a major conference (e.g., BUCLD, CUNY, GALA, GASLA, GALANA, SLRF, etc.). We also read and discuss choice articles on language acquisition from time to time. Meetings are usually held weekly (2:00 p.m.–3:00 p.m. on Fridays).
