Learning 2.0


Fundamental Luxembourgish – in early plurilingual settings (2008-2011)



The FUNDALUX (I) / (eapluls) project has three major concerns with regard to the development of Luxembourgish by young learners in Luxembourg’s multilingual society. On behalf of a dynamic corpus of Luxembourgish in its genesis as revealed through (multi- modal) learner data, FUNDALUX provides detailed and comprehensive inventories of fundamental Luxembourgish beyond the structural description of Luxembourgish; FUNDALUX analyzes the acquisition of Luxembourgish with regard to discourse activities; FUNDALUX provides environments for learning Luxembourgish from a developmental account, bridging the gap between Luxembourgish and the language of the young learner. The project contributes to the study of Luxembourgish and learning in discourse-interaction.
The University of Luxembourg is funding this project.
