Meeting Description:

The study of language control among L2 learners in a cognitive perspective raises various questions: How does explicit (control) or implicit (automatism) knowledge develop ? When are these forms of knowledge activated and used and what is the impact of their development on the accuracy, fluency and complexity of the output? How do learners control their output? What are their strategies?

Moreover, recent studies have focused on the control of two or more languages among bilingual and plurilingual subjects. They show that the latter, exactly like L2 learners, use a given language while the other languages remain active and can even compete among each other (Bialystok et al, 2004; Poarch & Van Hell, 2012; Van Hell & Tanner, 2012). So the simultaneous use of one or several languages requires a capacity to efficiently control linguistic activity in one language intentionnally chosen while avoiding possible conflicts with the other languages.
