2020 LSK Virtual Colloquium Series 4: Multilingualism
Title: Additive Multilingual Acquisition and Linguistic Transfer: State of the science and methodological issues

Speaker: Jason Rothman (UiT The Arctic University of Norway)

In this talk, I will review the nascent, yet flourishing field of studying linguistic transfer in third or more language acquisition (Rothman, González Alonso & Puig-Mayenco, 2019) with special reference to the existing formal models. I will make the case that L3 acquisition itself serves as an unrivaled natural laboratory to reveal and fully understand the dynamic nature of linguistic transfer inclusive of the manifold implications it holds for disentangling mind-language connections. The talk will also focus on epistemological and methodological issues related to best practice in testing for transfer source and why methodological choices matter so much for adjudicating between existing models and the creation of future ones.
