Full Title: The Second International Symposium on Chinese Theoretical and Applied Linguistics
Location: Milan, Italy
Start Date: 14-Dec-2017 - 16-Dec-2017
Contact: Giorgio Francesco Arcodia
Meeting URL: http://isoctal.wixsite.com/2017
Meeting Description:

The first ISOCTAL was held in 2015 at Newcastle University (https://conferences.ncl.ac.uk/isoctal2015/conferenceinformation/), and it was a successful and fruitful conference; we hope we can turn it into a regular biennial meeting.

ISOCTAL-2 hopes to feature papers on many topics in Chinese linguistics, understood broadly as covering all Sinitic languages, e.g. Mandarin, Wu, Cantonese and all regional varieties, including syntax, morphology, phonetics and phonology, semantics, language variation and sociolinguistic studies, diachronic change, language contact, typology and comparative studies, child language acquisition, second language acquisition and teaching, applications of translation and code-switching to pedagogy.

There will be a thematic session on child language acquisition with emphasis on research that has cross-linguistic implications and empirical work that refers to Mandarin, Wu, Cantonese and other languages spoken in Chinese communities.

The language of the conference is English.
