Call for abstracts for a special issue on Contemporary perspectives on discourse and corpora: New registers, analyses, texts, and tools (working title).
Corpus Linguistics and Linguistic Theory (<http://www.degruyter.de/journals/cllt/detail.cfm>http://www.degruyter.de/journals/cllt/detail.cfm) publishes original corpus-based studies focusing on theoretically relevant issues of linguistic research. The guest editor is inviting abstracts for paper submissions for a special issue on 'Contemporary perspectives on discourse and corpora: New registers, analyses, texts, and tools' (working title) to appear in the next volume in 2010.
The aim of the special issue is to promote current research on theoretically sound discourse analytical aspects of corpus linguistics. More specifically, the special issue will offer studies exhibiting state-of-the-art approaches to corpus-based analyses of texts from a range of contexts. Consistent with the general philosophy of the journal, and specific to the applied, discourse analytical aspect of linguistics, the special issue seeks submissions that
-- utilize new corpus-linguistic methods or extensions of existing methods in analyzing text; -- support theories of discourse as they relate to corpus-based text analysis; -- offer systematic and detailed analyses of lexical, grammatical, and/or lexico-grammatical patterns in spoken and/or written registers; -- analyze texts from emerging discourse contexts as they relate to the theoretical framework of corpus-based register studies; -- propose new approaches to corpus-based lexical pattern studies as they relate to discourse structure.
All submitted work will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis.
The following is our projected timeline: -- April 15, 2009: 300-500 word abstracts due -- April 25, 2009: Invitations to submit/rejections of abstracts -- September 25, 2009: Papers due -- February 15, 2010: Final revisions due
