1st Call for Papers The Leibniz Institute for the German Language (IDS) in Mannheim is pleased to announce the 10th International Contrastive Linguistics Conference (ICLC-10). The conference will take place in Mannheim, Germany, from 18 to 21 July 2023. The aim of the ICLC conference series, running since 1998, is to encourage fine-grained cross-linguistic research comprising two or more languages from a broad range of theoretical and methodological perspectives. ICLC brings together researchers from different linguistic subfields (and neighboring disciplines) to continue the (interdisciplinary) dialog on comparing languages, to foster the development of an international community,  to discuss the state of the art, and to advance possible new areas of cross-linguistic research. Contrastive Linguistics as a linguistic subfield has had a checkered history, but comparative and contrastive work has always been and continues to be an important part of linguistic research. New impulses for comparative and contrastive work include the increasing availability of multilingual corpora or comparative work drawing on naturalistic interaction data. At this anniversary edition of ICLC, we want to provide a stage for the presentation of such new work, and reflect the past, current and future developments of contrastive research in linguistics.   We invite contributions addressing (meta)theoretical, methodological or empirical issues, such as (but not limited to) the following:

* Comparison of phenomena in two or more languages addressing topics

from any area and level of linguistic analysis, including lexicon,

phonetics and phonology, morphology, syntax and  morphosyntax,

semantics, pragmatics as well as matters such as register and socio-

cultural context

* The state of the art and recent advances in contrastive linguistic


* The aims, objectives and scope of contrastive linguistic research

* The status of contrastive research within linguistic studies and its

relationship with neighbouring or complementary approaches such as

historical, typological, micro-variationist, intercultural and

contact linguistics

* The link between contrastive studies and fields of applied

linguistics such as foreign language teaching and learning,

translation studies and corpus linguistics

* Potentials and limits of theoretical frameworks in relation to

contrastive analysis (e.g., functional, cognitive, interactional,

generative, constructional approaches)

* Theoretical and theoretical-methodological issues (comparability,

incommensurability, the socio-cultural context, tertia

comparationis, language universals)

* Empirical and data-related methodological issues (parallel /

translation corpora, comparable corpora, learner corpora, multimodal

corpora, naturalistic data of face-to-face interaction, psycho- and

neurolinguistic experiments, surveys)

* The significance of the contrastive perspective for language-

specific description on the one handandforcross-linguistic

generalizationsand the development of linguistic theory on the other

hand    Confirmed keynote speakers are:

* Artemis Alexiadou (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Leibniz-Centre

for General Linguistics, Germany)

* Jenny Audring (Leiden University, The Netherlands)

* Elwys De Stefani (University of Heidelberg, Germany, and KU Leuven,


* Martin Haspelmath (Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human

History, Germany)

* Hilde Hasselgård (University of Oslo, Norway)   There will be a possibility to publish selected papers in a conference volume. Submission of Abstracts We invite submissions for 20-minute oral presentations (plus 10 minutes for discussion). Abstracts shouldformulate a clear research questionand include a description of the methods, results and conclusions. All submissions will be reviewed anonymously by at least two reviewers. All submissions must be in English, fully anonymous, and no longer than one page  (12 point Times New Roman), with up to one additional page for data, figures and references. Abstracts will be submitted via the EasyChair system. Further details on the submission procedure, registration and practical information will be announced in the 2nd call.

Submission deadline: 16 January 2023   Organizing Committee:
