The Pacific Second Language Research Forum is a venue for data-based and theoretical papers on areas of basic research in Second Language Acquisition (SLA). Topics include, but are not limited to, SLA in instructed and naturalistic settings; the effects of second language (L2) instruction on the rate and route of L2 development; the role of individual differences (in e.g., aptitude, age, personality, motivation) in SLA; competing models of SLA processes; SLA theory construction; the acquisition of L2 pragmatics; bilingualism; the influence of cognitive variables (e.g., memory and attention) on L2 learning and use; the assessment of L2 use and development; and methodological issues in research into L2 acquisition.
PacSLRF 2006 is a joint collaboration of the University of Queensland and Griffith University. It is part of LINQ 2006, a series of linguistic and applied linguistics meetings to be held at the University of Queensland in July 2006.
