*Language in Contrast** **Diachronic, variationist, and cross-linguistic studies of English*

University of Paris VIII and University of Paris X 4-5 December 2015 http://www.dsglynn.univ-paris8.fr/licparis2015.html

This conference will be a forum for contrastive studies (with an emphasis on English). The theme of contrast intended to inlcude any inter- or intra- linguistic variation. Therefore, studies that contrast different geographic, sociolinguistic, or historical varities just as studies that contrast entire languages are welcome. From comparative grammar to varriationist sociolinguistics and critical discourse anlaysis, the use of contrast in langauge science is an estblished heuristic. By confronting different languages or varieties of the same language, the organizers hope to bring to better bring to light previously unnoticed phenomena or to gain impreoved undertdanding of well-knnown phenoneman. Studies on any facet of English are welcome (from phonetics to pragmatics, from a diachronic or synchronic perspective, concerning acquisition or translation, quantitative analyses, etc.), the only requirement being that study be empirical and contrastive in approach:

- comparing English and another language - comparing one variety of English with one or more sociolinguistic varieties of English - comparing contemporary English with one or more historical varieties of English * **Plenaries Speakers* Eric Corre & Debra Ziegeler (Université Paris III) Title: TBA
