Corpus Linguistics in the South 12Corpus studies at the lexis-grammarinterface  Extended deadline for abstract submission: 10March 2016 https://www.edgehill.ac.uk/english/research/conferences/cls12

 The focus of CLS12 is the interaction of lexis and grammar.The focus is influenced by Halliday’s view of lexis and grammar as“complementary perspectives” (1991: 32), and his conception of the two as notionalends of a continuum (lexicogrammar),in that “if you interrogate the system grammatically you will get grammar-likeanswers and if you interrogate it lexically you get lexis-like answers” (1992:64).

 We welcome corpus-based papers which examine any aspect of theinteraction of lexis and grammar, or to extend Halliday’s conception, studieswhich interrogate the system lexicogrammatically to get lexicogrammaticalanswers. The studies … …      may be located more towards the lexis end or thegrammar end of the continuum.…      may be descriptive, theoretical or applied (e.g.related to lexicography or language teaching).…      may (but don’t need to) be situated within anytheoretical approach that recognises the combination or interaction of lexisand grammar (e.g. Construction Grammar, Lexical Grammar, Pattern Grammar,Systemic Functional Grammar). …      may be synchronic or diachronic.  We also welcome papers which discuss methodological issuesrelated to the corpus-based study of the lexis-grammar interface.  Presentations will be allocated a total of 40 minutes (includingat least 10 minutes for discussion). Please send an abstract of 400-500 words(excluding references) to Costas Gabrielatos (gabrielc at edgehill.ac.uk).
