Call for Papers

Received through the Corpora mailing list

The 14th meeting of Corpus Linguistics in the South will be held on Saturday March 4, 2017 at Birkbeck, University of London. For this session, we welcome papers examining any aspect of multilingual corpus linguistics. The studies may include (but are not limited to):

  • Studies of parallel, translation, interpreting, or language contact corpora
  • Corpus-based studies of multilingual practices (e.g. code-switching, borrowing, translanguaging)
  • Corpus-based studies of meta-perspectives on multilingualism and multilingual practices (e.g. representations, ideologies)

We also welcome papers discussing theoretical, methodological and technical issues related to multilingualism in corpus linguistics. Brief demonstrations of software tools and resources for doing multilingual corpus linguistics would also be welcome. The objective of the session is to explore the way multilingualism and/or issues surrounding multilingualism can be usefully addressed using corpus linguistics tools and techniques. Papers are welcome from established researchers and from early career researchers, including PhD students and Postdoctoral researchers.
There are two options for submission: full papers and work-in-progress papers. Full papers will be allocated a total of 40 minutes (30 minutes for presentation followed by 10 minutes of discussion). Papers focusing on research in progress will be allocated a total of 20 minutes (15 minutes followed by 5 minutes of discussion). Abstracts of 250-350 words should specify in the heading if the paper should be considered as a full paper or as a work-in-progress, as in the format below.

Abstract format:
Specify: Full paper / work-in-progress
Abstract (250-350 words)
References (not included in word count)

Abstracts should be sent as anonymised attachments, without name or affiliation, to by Friday 27 January 2017. Decisions will be sent out in mid-February.

A propos Kimberly Oger

Américaine d'origine, j'entame ma sixième (et, je l'espère, dernière) année de thèse de linguistique anglaise sous la direction de Wilfrid Rotgé à l’Université Paris-Sorbonne. Je travaille sur une utilisation particulière de DO à l'oral dans des contextes anaphoriques en anglais britannique, de type "I will do" ou "She might have done". Il s'agit de la première étude de ce phénomène menée dans le cadre de la linguistique de corpus. Mon étude porte sur un échantillon composé de 483 occurrences, relevées dans la composante orale du BNC, le British National Corpus. Je suis également, depuis septembre 2017, PRAG de linguistique à l'UFR d'études anglophones de l'Université Paris-Sorbonne.
