Description: Geographical linguistics (or dialectology) and Sociolinguistics has a long tradition: languages and varieties have been analyzed in the last centuries. However, recent decades have seen a rapid increase in insights into linguistic structure as well as in geographic technology, and those two have not always been completely matched to each other, so that one might feel that current linguistic maps leave things to be desired for on both ends. This conference promotes the study of the acquisition and development of language in monolingual or multilingual contexts, with particular attention to the acquisition of Basque and Spanish languages, and the relationships of language with other educational, pragmatic and biological processes.
