About ICOP L2

Interactional Competences and Practices in a Second Language (ICOP-L2) conferences bring together researchers sharing a socially situated view of language use and development who investigate how people engage in second language interaction. Drawing on the principles of ethnomethodology, conversation analysis, membership categorization analysis, usage-based linguistics and related approaches, they investigate how users of L2s engage in sense-making practices, and how they learn and teach in interaction: What are the basic ingredients of L2 interactional competence? How does such competence vary across situations and over time? How do L2 speakers use the linguistic resources at their disposal to accomplish social actions in coordination with others? How do linguistic and other resources (such as gaze, gesture, posture, and the material world) work together in L2 talk? How does social interaction structure learning processes and learning products? How can L2 interactional competence and learning through interaction be addressed in educational contexts as well as in ‘the wild’?
