The Institute of English at the University of Silesia, has the pleasure to announce the first international conference titled Various Dimensions of Contrastive Studies (V-DOCS 2014).
The conference aims at focusing on the variety of the possible approaches to contrasting languages. We want to welcome academics who represent various methodologies and perspectives on linguistic analysis: formal, functional, cognitive-semantic, pragmatic and cultural, with the aim of contrasting English with any other language. Thus, the list of suggested topics for the conference presentations may include, although will not be limited to, the following issues:
contrastive semantics and lexicology
contrastive discourse studies
contrastive cognitive-linguistic studies
contrastive cultural-linguistic studies
bi- and multilingual lexicography
language contact, borrowing and code-switching
teaching contrastive grammar at the university level: the place of contrastive studies in the curriculum, course syllabus, teaching materials, methodology, students’ expectations, assessment of the course, etc.
