 Preliminary call for papers


Universit� de Nantes (France), 4-5-6 Mai 2004
University of Nantes (France), May 4-5-6, 2004 THEMES / TOPICS :

Comme lors des pr�c�dentes JEL, nous avons choisi un objet central
susceptible d'int�resser simultan�ment plusieurs champs de recherche
en linguistique, afin de r�affirmer la dimension r�solument
pluridisciplinaire du travail d�velopp� � l'AAI (Acoustique,
Acquisition et Interpr�tation) ainsi que la vocation
interdisciplinaire de ces journ�es offrant � des sp�cialistes
diff�rents (phonologues, phon�ticiens, psycholinguistes,
syntacticiens, s�manticiens ...) la possibilit� de se rencontrer et de
s'�couter mutuellement.

In the tradition of the workshop, we have chosen a topic of
simultaneous interest to various disciplines in linguistics, thus
reaffirming the cross-disciplinary approach to research developed at
the AAI (Acoustics, Acquisition and Interpretation) research lab at
the University of Nantes. The workshop aims at bringing together
researchers from different fields (phonologists, phoneticians,
psycholinguists, syntacticians, semanticists ) in order to create a
forum for dialogue and research across disciplines.

La notion de domaine est utilis�e par divers champs de recherche avec
des acceptions diverses :
* phonologie : domaines d'harmonie, gabarits, etc
* phon�tique : cycles articulatoires, domaines intonatifs etc
* syntaxe : domaines d'anaphore/liage, de quantification/port�e, de
localit�/phases, etc
* psycholinguistique : unit�s d'int�gration, domaines d'acc�s lexical,

The notion of domains is recurrent across disciplines with different
* phonology: vowel harmony domains, templates, etc
* phonetics: articulatory cycles, intonational domains, etc
* syntax: anaphora/binding domains, quantification/scope domains,
locality/phases, etc
* psycholinguistics: integration units, lexical access domains, etc

Le sujet propos� Domaines interrogera les conceptions de cet objet
retenues par ces diverses disciplines et questionnera particuli�rement
les interfaces possibles entre ces diff�rentes conceptions du domaine.
* Interfaces Phonologie / Morphologie / Syntaxe (domaines de sandhis,
de mutations, domaines de cliticisation, etc) 
* Interfaces Syntaxe / S�mantique (mapping entre domaines syntaxiques
et s�mantiques, etc)

The workshop will question the different conceptions of the notion of
domains as defined within or across (sub)disciplines, and in
particular, the possible interfaces between these alternative
(converging or competing) conceptions.
* Phonology / Morphology / Syntax Interface (sandhi, clitic domains,
mutations, etc)
* Syntax / Semantics Interface (mapping between syntactic and semantic
domains, etc)
* Psycholinguistique / Psycholinguistics
* Linguistique Computationnelle / Computational Linguistics
