Theoretical linguistics in the light of the interaction of qualitative and quantitative approaches

International Symposium

University of Neuchâtel

3-4 June 2020

Call ­for papers

Confirmed keynote speakers:

Sascha Diwersy (Université Paul Valéry – Montpellier)

The core interest of this conference is to identify the place of theoretical linguistics in the last decade, when the use of quantitative methods in the humanities has grown exponentially. The international conference aims to bring together researchers working on both qualitative research and quantitative analysis taking into account statistical calculations and computational methods. The expected results are:

- a better understanding of how theoretical linguistics is being rethought in the light of quantitative methods

- a more precise and complete view of the theoretical linguistic reflections behind quantitative linguistics

- a profitable exchange of methods and quantitative tools tested in research already carried out

- an overview of future research prospects in quantitative corpus linguistics

- present and future gains for theoretical linguistics

Submissions must highlight the interaction of theoretical and quantitative linguistics

Possible topics may include:

- modality

- TAM markers

- discourse markers

- cohesion markers

- phraseology

in relation to theoretical questions such as:

- diachronic variation

- genre variation

- linguistic change

- representation of meaning

Proposals, in French or English, must be maximum 500 words (not including bibliography and annexes). They must be sent, together with a short bio-bibliography, to: theorling2020unine at gmail.com, by February 29th 2020 at the latest. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by March 30th 2020.
