Call for Papers Extended deadline for abstract submission: 14 May 2022
GUEST SPEAKER Magali Paquot<https://perso.uclouvain.be/magali.paquot/> (UniversitÚ catholique de Louvain) Investigating phraseological complexity in learner language: From collocations to collostructions and other lexicogrammatical structures
The symposium will take place online on Saturday 9 July 2022.
The focus of LxGr 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 notional ends of a continuum (lexicogrammar), in that "if you interrogate the system grammatically you will get grammar-like answers and if you interrogate it lexically you get lexis-like answers" (1992: 64).
LxGr primarily welcomes papers reporting on corpus-based research on any aspect of the interaction of lexis and grammar, and is particularly interested in studies that interrogate the system lexicogrammatically to get lexicogrammatical answers. However, position papers discussing theoretical or methodological issues are also welcome, as long as they are relevant to both lexicogrammar and corpus linguistics. More specifically, studies can ...
* focus more on the lexis or grammar end of the continuum, or adopt an integrative approach. * discuss different interpretations of the nature of lexicogrammar. * operate within any theoretical approach that takes into account the interaction of lexis and grammar; e.g. Construction Grammar, Lexical Grammar, Pattern Grammar, Systemic Functional Grammar, Valency Grammar. * discuss empirical findings in need of theoretical interpretation. * adopt a synchronic or diachronic approach. * examine any language, or compare different languages. * examine L1 and/or L2 use. * discuss the implications of the findings of corpus-based lexicogrammatical research for applied linguistics (e.g. forensic linguistics, lexicography, language acquisition, language processing, language teaching, language testing and assessment, translation, sociolinguistics, discourse studies). * report on the development of relevant research resources and/or applications (e.g. language teaching, translation, critical discourse studies).
If you would like to present, send an abstract of 500 words (excluding references) to lxgr at edgehill.ac.uk<mailto:lxgr at edgehill.ac.uk>. Please make sure that the abstract clearly specifies the research focus (questions or hypotheses), the corpus and methodology (techniques and metrics), the theoretical orientation, and the main findings.
