In September 2015, AThEME partner Laboratoire de Linguistique de Nantes (University of Nantes) hosted the 12th Generative Approaches to Language Acquisition conference (GALA 12). As stated in these proceedings: “The conference Generative Approaches to Language Acquisition is the biannual meeting of researchers working on language development from a generative perspective. It provides a forum for discussion of the most recent advances on first and second language acquisition, heritage language and bilingual acquisition, language pathology, the acquisition of sign language and neurolinguistics.”

In this volume, 18 high-quality and diverse papers are presented, which will prove “a valuable reference guide for the researchers working in the domain of language acquisition and language development from a generative perspective.”
