Dear List Members,

Call for Papers Workshop: Evaluative Language and Corpus Linguistics Corpus Linguistics 2013 conference, Lancaster University, 22 July 2013

Proposals for papers are invited for a full-day workshop on the topic of evaluative language and corpus linguistics, to be held on the first day of Corpus Linguistics 2013 at Lancaster University. The aim is to bring together researchers working in the areas of stance, appraisal, subjectivity and affect and using corpus investigation methodologies in their research. We particularly welcome proposals focusing on the following themes:

* Use of corpus evidence to generate, test, or enhance theories and models of evaluative language

* Studies of evaluative language in specific contexts

* Applications of evaluative language studies If you wish to take part in the workshop, please send an abstract of no more than 250 words to Susan Hunston (s.e.hunston at bham.ac.uk<mailto:s.e.hunston at bham.ac.uk>), using the following format:

Page 1: Your name, contact details, and the title of the abstract. Page 2: The title of the abstract and the abstract itself Abstracts will be selected by a committee consisting of: Monika Bednarek (University of Sydney) Marina Bondi (University of Modena and Reggio Emilia) Susan Hunston (University of Birmingham) Neil Millar (University of Birmingham)

Format of the workshop: The proposed format is three 90-minute sessions, plus a round table discussion. Each session will comprise three or four papers, giving a total of about 10 papers.

Important dates and notes: Deadline for the submission of abstracts: 25th January 2013 You will hear back from us by: 25th February 2013 In line with the policy of the conference organisers, you are welcome to submit abstracts both for this workshop and for the main CL13 conference. However, if you give two papers they should be different, without substantial overlap.
