|Meeting Description:||Grammar and writing systems are in a notoriously difficult relationship. They might be considered totally independent systems or in strict representational relationship, especially in alphabetic phonographic writing systems which aim (originally and partially) to mirrot the phonic realization of (grammatical) information. The difficulty to understand their relationship increases with deep orthographic systems such as the French (and partially also the German) one, which give priority to etymological and morphological consistency instead of mirroring the actual pronunciation of the different items and features, a fact which becomes visible when taking into account writing practices beyond strict normative usage such as computer-mediated communication, especially text messages (SMS). The one-day workshop aims thus to bring together specialists of the realization, oral and written, of grammatical clue information, more precisely (past participle) agreement on the one hand, and on the acquisition and interdependency of writing and texting, on the other, both for French and German.
Participation is free.
