We are pleased to announce the 2nd conference on:

Language Disorders in Greek

to take place on May 31st to June 1st 2008, at the Department of Speech and Language Therapy of the Technological Educational Institute of Patras, Greece.

Taking into consideration the ongoing research on impaired language and its implications for what we know about language and the brain, as well as research on Greek in particular, the aim of this conference is to bring together current research on Greek as a result of language disorder(s).
Both theoretical and experimental research is welcome on any topic of phonology, morphology, syntax, semantics, or pragmatics.
Special emphasis is given on comparative work, either between Greek and some other language(s), or on bilingualism/multilingualism when one of the languages is Greek.

This year’s meeting will give priority to Developmental Language Disorders
(although work on other disorders, as well as on early language, will also be considered).

We are accepting abstracts for oral or poster presentations. Oral presentations will last 30min with an additional 10min question period. Abstracts should be one page long with at least an one-inch margin on all sides and must employ a font no smaller than 12 point. A second page may contain graphs or references. Abstracts should be sent electronically, in Word or Pdf format, to:
