	title        = {Preface. Proceedings of the Joint 6th Workshop on NLP for Computer Assisted Language Learning
and 2nd Workshop on NLP for Research on Language Acquisition at NoDaLiDa 2017, Gothenburg, 22nd May 2017},
	abstract     = {For the second year in a row we brought two related themes of NLP for Computer-Assisted Language Learning and NLP for Language Acquisition together. The goal of organizing joint workshops is to provide a meeting place for researchers working on language learning issues including both empirical and experimental studies and NLP-based applications. The resulting volume covers a variety of topics from the two fields and - hopefully - showcases the challenges and achievements in the field.
The seven papers in this volume cover native language identification in learner writings, using syntactic complexity development in language learner language to identify reading comprehension texts of appropriate level, exploring the potential of parallel corpora to predict mother-language specific problem areas for learners of another language, tools for learning languages - both well-resourced ones such as English as well as endangered or under-resourced ones such as Yakut and Võro, as well as exploring the potential of automatically identifying and correcting word-level errors in Swedish learner writing.},
