L2APR: L2 accent and pronunciation research: acquisition, teaching, attitudes Ca’ Foscari University of Venice
Venice, Italy, November 15-16, 2023

The Department of Linguistics and Comparative Cultural Studies at Ca’ Foscari University of Venice is pleased to announce the international conference “L2 accent and pronunciation research: acquisition, teaching, attitudes” which will be held on November 15-16, 2023, in Venice, Italy.

Our aim is to bring together scholars interested in the three main lines of research in foreign accented speech indicated in the conference title: acquisition, teaching and attitudes. We invite contributions of original research related to all languages.

Possible topics include L2 phonetics and phonology acquisition, methodological advances in pronunciation teaching and assessment of foreign accented speech. Contributions exploring general attitudes towards foreign accents and learners’ viewpoints on the value of explicit classroom instruction in L2 phonetics are particularly welcome.

The event will be hosted by Ca’ Foscari University of Venice. There will be no fee for participants.
