Summary

Announcement

The present workshop aims at:

1. Clarifying the concept of ‘advanced learner’. What is it? How does it relate to ‘native speaker’ or ‘near-native speaker’ How does advancement translate in terms of, for e.g., mental representations of formal features, or in terms of sociolinguistic and pragmatic knowledge?

2, Providing new evidence for the understanding of advanced varieties in areas such as lexical development, nominal and verbal morphology; mood, tense and aspect; syntax; discursive, sociolinguistic or pragmatic competence etc… on the basis of the various approaches.

The workshop will focus in the first instance on L2 French but contributions on other languages are more than welcome, be it the studies of other Romance Languages, contrastive studies or studies that provide general insight into advanced varieties.
