Second Language Research Forum 2013 "The Natural Phenomenon of SLA: Complexity, Context and
Communication”
 
October 31 - November 2, 2013
 
Hosted by:
Brigham Young University
in Provo, Utah
 
 
Second language (L2) acquisition has been called a "natural” phenomenon, but is it natural socially, biologically or cognitively? Recent research suggests that language is a "complex adaptive system” involving cognitive, social and innate mechanisms, which all interact, adapt, and develop in complex ways (Ellis and Larsen-Freeman, 2009). Whether or not researchers adhere to this notion, there is little dispute that language is complex and affected by the context in which it occurs and the communication of ideas between people. Thus, this conference welcomes research that investigates the complexity of L2 acquisition, the contexts in which it is learned, and the communication it creates.
