Corpus approaches to the language of literature

CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION

** Extended deadline for proposals: May 27th 2005 **

A one-day pre-conference workshop
Corpus Linguistics 2005
14th July 2005
Birmingham University, UK

Workshop website: http://www.corpus.bham.ac.uk/conference/wynnecl2005.htm

Organised by:
Oxford Text Archive, PALA and AHDS Literature, Languages and Linguistics

This workshop features two invited speakers on research at the interface
between literary study and corpus linguistics:

* Bill Louw (Harare) on collocation and semantic prosody in literature
and in corpora;
* Mick Short (Lancaster) on annotating stylistic features in corpora.

Further contributions and papers are invited, to address one or more of
the following issues:

* corpus annotation and analysis of linguistic features in literary
texts;
* the study of literary effects in texts by using the evidence of
language norms in a reference corpus, including the use of collocations,
colligations and semantic prosody;
* creativity in language, as identified or analysed with reference to
corpus evidence;
* theoretical and practical problems with the use of corpora in
literary study;
* resources and techniques for the study of literature using corpora.

Proposals for papers to be presented at the workshop should be between
250 and 500 words in length, and should be sent to
martin.wynne at oucs.ox.ac.uk by the deadline of 27th May 2005.

Papers will be assessed for inclusion on the basis of their relevance to
the above topics. However, there will only be space in this short
workshop for a maximum of 6 presentations. We hope to have many
participants in addition to those who are giving papers, so please do
not feel you have to submit a paper in order to attend. If you submit a
paper and it is not accepted due to the time restrictions, we very much
hope that you will still be able to attend and contribute to the
discussion.

This is a one-day workshop at the Corpus Linguistics 2005 (CL2005)
conference. Conference registration is open at the CL2005 website at
http://www.corpus.bham.ac.uk/conference/. Participants may register only
for the workshop, but are encouraged to also register for the main
conference, which will take place 15-17th July. Registration and
accommodation is organised through the main conference administration.

This workshop is supported by the Poetics and Linguistics Association
(PALA - http://www.pala.ac.uk), the leading international association
for stylistics, and is a PALA 25 anniversary event. It is organised by
the Oxford Text Archive (http://ota.ox.ac.uk/), which hosts AHDS
Literature, Languages and Linguistics (http://litlangling.ahds.ac.uk/).
The Arts and Humanities Data Service (AHDS) promotes good practice in
the creation and use of electronic resources in literary and linguistic
research, and is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and
the JISC.
