Meeting Description:

First Circular - January, 2003

The frame topic of the colloquium is:
'Language and Language-processing'

Linguistics has demandingly been dealing with questions like how
language is perceived, processed and received for more than two
decades. In the age of modern computers and different kind of language
generators controlled by computers, such a conference can raise common
thoughts about this topic. In order to maintain the thought-raising
character of the conference the frame topic should be examined from a
theoretical as well as from a practical aspect. Therefore all
theoretical questions like language acquisition, language perception
and their linguistic background are welcome as well as other topics
focussing on practical applications of language processing
technologies in research and teaching. In addition, the traditional
linguistic fields of research should also be taken into account, their
results can be understood as basic researches for language processing.

We have won the following professors round to give a lecture:

1. Prof. Dr. G�bor Pr�sz�ky (Faculty of Informational Technology,
P�ter P�zm�ny Catholic University, Budapest, Hungary)
2. Dr. �va S�f�r (University of Norwich, England)

>From Old to Classical French: Parameters of Linguistic Change

Short Title: Old to Classical French
Location: Copenhagen, Denmark
Date: 11-Aug-2003 - 15-Aug-2003 
Call Deadline: 01-Mar-2003

Web Site: http://www.hum.ku.dk/ichl2003/
Contact Person: Mireille Tremblay
Meeting Email: mt11qsilver.queensu.ca
Linguistic Subfield(s): Historical Linguistics 
Subject Language(s): French

Meeting Description: 

The workshop will focus on the evolution of French morphosyntax during
the periods preceding the standardization of the language. The Middle
Ages and Renaissance saw a number of important changes in word order,
negation, clitic placement, the left periphery, grammatical aspect,
and particles. How can such changes be accounted for? How are they
related to one another? Are the changes found to the same extent in
all dialects? Did they occur successively or simultaneously? Can we
identify a period of more intense change? Are similar changes found
in other Romance languages? Papers seeking to answer these questions
using corpus-based analyses are particularly welcome. Please submit a
300 word abstract by March 1, 2003 to the conference website:
http://www.hum.ku.dk/ichl2003/. If early acceptance is required, please
contact the Director of the conference Prof. Lene Schoesler at
schoeslhum.ku.dk.

For more information concerning the workshop, please contact the
organizers: France Martineau, University of Ottawa
(fmartinuottawa.ca) or Mireille Tremblay, Queen's University
(mt11qsilver.queensu.ca).
