subordination/coordination…). Les communications consacrées à la structure/cohérence des
narrations orales en général sont les bienvenues. Une session spéciale sera consacrée aux
fictions orales, i.e., au conte. Les communications de cette session alterneront avec des
performances de conteurs français.

Les propositions de communication envoyées au comité scientifique pourront couvrir de
multiples genres de narrations orales (contes, récits de vie, médias…), et s'inscrire dans des
cadres théoriques variés. La longueur des proposition (anonymes) de communication ne

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis; Pragmatics; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Call Deadline: 01-Sep-2006

Meeting Description:

Large corpora are already a fact in syntax, semantics and pragmatics. But, what about
argumentation? Can we use (large) corpora in argumentative analysis? Can we use (large)
corpora for argumentative analysis?

This panel wants to address some epistemological and methodological dilemmas related to
these questions.

Arguing from Large Corpora: Some Epistemological and Methodological Dilemmas

Panel prepared for the 10th International Pragmatics Conference (Gothenburg, Sweden, 9-
14 July, 2007)

Large corpora are already a fact in syntax, semantics and pragmatics. But, what about
argumentation? Can we use (large) corpora in argumentative analysis? Can we use (large)
corpora for argumentative analysis?

This panel wants to address (and sometimes re-address) the following questions/problems/
dilemmas: can/may corpora be read as plain texts? Or is there a difference? And if there is a
difference, what is the most appropriate tool for analyzing corpora? Is there an appropriate
tool for analyzing corpora at all? Or do we have to (re)invent and (re)construct these tools
all the time?

How can we identify topics in large corpora if they are NOT to be read as plain texts? How
can we determine what (topic) is important and what (topic) is not? And last - but not least,
of course - can we argue from such large corpora? How can we detect and mark off
arguments within large corpora? Can the whole corpora serve/be used as arguments? And
what is the value (let alone validity) of such argument(ation)s?

Contributions from all fields of language and language-related studies are welcomed.
If you are interested, please send an abstract by September 1st to the following address:
igor.zagarguest.arnes.si. The final decision (depending on how many time slots we will be
assigned by the conference committee) will be made by the end of September.
