Meeting Description: 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).

Although the tradition of contrastive studies has a very long history, it has been changing with the emergence of new linguistic theories and approaches to understanding the notion of language (Krzeszowski 1990). Today, the scope of contrastive studies ranges from formal approaches to functional and pragmatic perspectives, from structural research to cognitive-semantic studies, and from theoretical analyses to corpus linguistics.

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.
