The CCL was well represented at the 23rd Eurosla (the European Second Language Association) conference in Amsterdam. Susan Sayehli presented a paper on the acquisition of German as a third language and the potential influence of previously learned languages. Marianne Gullberg presented two papers. The first examined the acquisition of sound regularities in an unknown language after 7 minutes of contact (Ristin-Kaufmann & Gullberg). The second paper addressed what Belgian bilinguals’ speech and gestures tell us about the nature of the bilingual system (Alferink & Gullberg).
