2nd Person Pronouns
and Forms of Address in European Languages

CALL FOR PAPERS

This colloquium, organised by the Forum of European Languages in
Paris, will take place in Paris from Thursday 6 to Saturday 8 March
2003.

The theme of the colloquium is second person pronouns and forms of
address ( "T" and "V" forms ) in the languages of Europe.

The colloquium aims to describe the present uses of 2nd person
pronouns and to analyse the developments which have occurred in the
course of the last century. Papers concerning earlier periods will
also be considered.

Papers should, in principle, be delivered in French. However, if a
speaker does not have a sufficiently good command of French, the use
of another language would also be possible, with the prior approval of
the Organising Committee.

Papers of 20 minutes will be followed by 10 minutes of
discussion. Possible subjects for papers include:

- geographical and sociolinguistic variations (involving one or more
languages or linguistic varieties, in a single country or in several
countries)

- the diachronic development of 2nd person pronouns and forms of
address (where this sheds light on contemporary usage)

- stylistic and discoursal variations (written/spoken differences,
usage in different types of text and media)

- problems linked to the translation and learning of foreign
languages.

Each of the 9 members of the Forum will invite a prominent academic to
make a plenary lecture concerning the languages of the Forum: Basque,
Catalan, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, Galician, German, Italian,
Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.

Proposals for papers should include: the title of the paper; the name
and affiliation of the author(s); an abstract of 200=96250 words
(written in French and the language concerned); a postal address and
an email address. Proposals should be sent by email or traditional
mail to one of the following addresses:

Secretariat du colloque 2P
colloque2pbiparis.lon.ac.uk

or

Secretariat du colloque 2P
Instituto Cervantes
7, rue Quentin-Bauchart
75008 Paris, France

All proposals will be evaluated anonymously by the Review Committee.

A selection of the papers given at the colloquium, chosen by the
Review Committee, will be published in Franco-British Studies, the
academic journal of the British Institute in Paris (University of
London), provided that the complete text of the paper (in article
form) is submitted during the colloquium.

CALENDAR

31 October 2002: 	deadline for submitting proposals for papers
15 December 2002: 	notification of the acceptance of papers.

Enrolment fees: 40 euros for students and 60 euros for non-students.
