This year’s annual British Association of Applied Linguistics (BAAL) Vocabulary Special Interest Group (SIG) conference will be held at Swansea University, Wales. The theme of this conference is ‘New approaches to vocabulary’. We would like to gather all the interesting studies on vocabulary in Applied Linguistics, Psycholinguistics and related subject areas. Before the conference, we will also provide a pre-conference workshop on ‘programming vocabulary experiments and recording reactions times’. This workshop will introduce the use of computer software to design experiments following classical paradigms such as the lexical decision or the categorization tasks. Attendees will receive hands-on-experience of experimental programming. The conference and workshop is open to all students and staffs.
