Meeting Description: The Corpus and LAnguage Variation In English Research Group (CLAVIER) is pleased to announce its 2017 international conference focussing on specialised knowledge and ways in which specialised knowledge is represented and redefined.

CLAVIER shares a methodological framework that combines two complementary strands of linguistic investigation – corpus analysis and discourse analysis – to research on language variation in English, both in quantitative and qualitative terms. Thus, one of the main aims of CLAVIER is to contribute to an integration of quantitative and qualitative methods in research on language variation in terms of diachronic, geographic and socio-cultural dimensions across genres/disciplines/domains and through the methodological tools offered by corpora.

The working languages of the conference are English, Italian, French and Spanish.
