The aim of this year’s annual Vocabulary Studies SIG Conference is to bring together vocabulary researchers who approach the study of vocabulary from multiple perspectives. The conference will be an excellent opportunity to foster fruitful discussions about the multifaceted nature of vocabulary and to engage with present and future vocabulary research avenues.
We welcome abstracts for paper and poster presentations on any topic related to the teaching, learning, processing, use, and assessment of vocabulary (e.g. corpus linguistic approaches to the study of vocabulary; classroom-based research on the learning and teaching of vocabulary; formulaic language; psycholinguistic studies on the processing of vocabulary; vocabulary assessment, etc.). We particularly welcome abstracts based on empirical data.
We welcome proposals for: a) Paper presentations (20 minutes + 10 minutes for questions) and b) and poster proposals. A title and a 300-word abstract should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by the 15th of February 2019. Please specify if your submission is for a poster or paper presentation and do not add tables or diagrams in the abstract submission.
