After the successes of the First International Conference on Constructionist Approaches to Language Pedagogy (CALP 1) at The University of Brussels in 2013 and of CALP 2 at the University of Basel in 2016, CALP 3 will take place at the University of Texas at Austin, February 15-17, 2018. 

Call for Papers:

We invite theoretical, methodological, empirical, and pedagogical contributions dealing with: 

Usage-based/constructionist approaches to (second) language learning and teaching, with a special focus on: 
- learning processes, such as entrenchment, categorization, schematization, and generalization 
- item-specific vs. item-general constructional knowledge and the lexicon-grammar continuum 
- input/intake, input distributions, input processing, and input enhancement 
- interaction, negotiation, elaboration, output, and feedback 
- (selective) attention, noticing, and interfaces between implicit/incidental and explicit/intentional (second) language learning and teaching, including age effects 
- individual differences in the domains of affect/motivation, aptitude/cognition (e.g., working memory, pattern recognition ability), and learned attention/conceptualization 

Usage-based/constructionist approaches to (second) language assessment, primarily with regards to: 
- varying degrees of productivity and the distinction between item-specific and item-general knowledge/patterns 
- information packaging, degrees of explicitness, and pragmatic adequacy 
- the elicitation of contextualized, meaningful language use 
- the use and significance of structural priming and scaffolding in language testing 

The creation of online learning and assessment tools using constructional and phraseological principles: 
- use/development of tools to detect learner-specific errors in grammar use and understanding 
- methods to align learner-specific errors with constructional requirements for licensed uses 
- development of learning material for specific grammatical constructions 
development of learning material for particular learner groups 
- (considering, for example, systematic interferences between mother tongue and target language) 

Keynote speakers: 

Gaëtanelle Gilquin, Université catholique de Louvain 
Stefan T. Gries, University of California, Santa Barbara
