Meeting Description: The Developing Lexicon: Representations and Processing
Workshop in the Developing Mind Series of the Child Language Lab, Macquarie University, Sydney

The lexicon forms the backbone for successful language development. However, despite its importance, little is known about how learners store and process phonological, morphological, syntactic and semantic aspects of lexical representations, and the role this plays in both language processing and speech planning.

This workshop brings together researchers working on the lexicon in language acquisition and development - using various methodologies and paradigms - to gain a better understanding of the architecture of the mental lexicon and its development. Submissions are welcome on all research exploring this issue in monolingual and multilingual children and adults, and in both typically developing and special populations (such as those with hearing impairments and language delays). The workshop will include keynote addresses and invited talks by experts in the fields of linguistics, computational modeling, cognitive science, and developmental psychology.

Registration for this workshop is free. More details on the workshop can be found at the listed URL. For further information or enquiries, please send an email to
