THEMES OF THE WORKSHOP:

The workshop will accommodate both figurative-language research that is
centred on corpora and figurative-language research that is centred on
AI or psychological processing models that make some use of corpora or
throw light on the use of corpora.

One focus of the workshop is that of mapping out desiderata for and
problems with corpora for figurative language research. Here the
inclusion of different types of researcher --- theoretical linguists,
applied linguists, computational linguists, cognitive linguists,
psychologists, etc. -- will bring a valuable mix of different
perspectives.


STYLE OF THE WORKSHOP:

The workshop will occupy a full day. We expect about 10 talks of 30
minutes including 10 minutes of discussion time each. We will enforce
the discussion time strictly. The workshop will also include two
discussion sessions on topics identified as salient during the day. In
addition, we will allow posters to be set up at the beginning of the day
as well as software demonstrations, viewable during breaks. 

Papers, posters and software demonstrations will be selected by the
workshop organizers on the basis of submitted two-page abstracts. A
proceedings of full papers will be published after the event.

There will be some space for non-presenting participants. Please contact
one of the organizers if interested.


Abstract submission deadline: Monday 19 February 2001

 CALL FOR PAPERS

 THE 4TH NORTH WEST CENTRE FOR LINGUISTICS ANNUAL 
 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

 CO-ORDINATION: SYNTAX, SEMANTICS & PRAGMATICS

The University of Salford, Greater Manchester 16 - 18 November 2001

Organized by Diane Blakemore, ESRI, University of Salford

			Caroline Heycock, University of Edinburgh
			Rob Stainton, Carleton University, Ontario

This conference aims to explore the relationships between syntax, 
semantics and pragmatics through the analysis of co-ordination. We 
welcome papers on either the syntax or semantics or pragmatics of co-
ordination; however, given our aim, we particularly welcome papers 
which have implications for the interface between form and interpretation.

A selection of the papers presented at the conference will be published 
as a special issue of Lingua, co-edited by Diane Blakemore (Salford) and 
Robyn Carston (University College London).

Papers will be 30 minutes duration (plus 10 minutes discussion). The 
deadline for abstracts is 1 JUNE 2001. 

Because abstracts of accepted papers will be copied and inserted in the 
collection of abstracts we ask you to observe the following guidelines:

Maximum length: one A4 page
Margins: at least 2.5 cm on all sides
Single spacing
Type: no smaller than 12 point.
Title of paper, name of author(s), affiliation and email address at top of
