Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics

Call Deadline: 05-Sep-2005

Meeting Description:

Linguistic Evidence 2006 aims to bring together people working on the
relationships between linguistic data on the one hand and linguistic description
and theory on the other.

Empirical, Theoretical, and Computational Perspectives

The ever-increasing accessibility of corpus data and the wider application of
experimental linguistic techniques in recent years has led to a remarkable
revival of interest in issues of the empirical base of linguistic theory in
general, and the status of different kinds of linguistic evidence in particular.
Consensus is growing that all sorts of data, even so-called primary data from
introspection or from authentic language production, are inherently complex and
reflect performance and production factors as well as the constructs which are
subject of linguistic theory. It is therefore necessary for linguistic studies
to adduce evidence from multiple data types or sources: introspective data,
corpus data, psycholinguistic data, experimental data, historical and diachronic
data, typological data, neurolinguistic data and language learning data are not
only welcome but also often essential. It is in particular by contrasting
evidence from different sources with respect to particular research questions
that we may gain a deeper understanding of the status and quality of the
individual types of linguistic evidence on the one hand, and of their mutual
relationship and relative weight on the other.

It is the aim of this conference to bring together researchers from different
areas of linguistics to discuss their views on the above issues and their use of
different types of evidence in dealing with linguistic research questions of
different generality, and thereby help establish a better understanding of the
nature of linguistic evidence. We therefore invite original contributions from
all fields of linguistics (including syntax, semantics, pragmatics, phonology,
morphology, phonetics, computational linguistics, psycholinguistics,
neurolinguistics, historical linguistics, typology) on any of the above issues
concerning linguistic evidence.
