Meeting Email: gramkorp2007ujc.cas.cz

Linguistic Field(s): Text/Corpus Linguistics

Call Deadline: 31-Mar-2007

Meeting Description:

G&C welcomes papers and posters from any theoretical perspective,
addressing any topic in:

Corpus-based grammar research on natural languages
Corpus creation and grammatical research
Czech grammar and corpora of Czech

The conference will be divided into three thematic sections:

1. Corpus-based grammar research on natural languages

The general aim of this section is to inform each other about:
- who is working in this field;
- which grammatical phenomena they are exploring;
- which languages they are working on;
- which corpora their data are drawn from; and
- where this research is being conducted.

Corpus studies on grammatical phenomena of individual languages as well as
contrastive studies (e.g. German and French; English and Norwegian) are welcome.

2. Corpus creation and grammatical research

The general aim of this section is to inform each other as to:
- which linguistic corpora are being created where, with what aims and goals, in
what manner and with what means;
- what the short-term (1-3 year) goals and long-term goals are, especially as
regards their scope, genre composition and tagging;
- how the needs of those who study grammar are reflected in the creation of corpora;
- how other electronic media can be used to study the grammar of a natural language

3. Czech grammar and corpora of Czech

The aim of this section is to inform each other about which grammatical features
of contemporary Czech can be better studied via large-scale unified textual
infrastructures of the sort represented by computer corpora, and about
grammatical features that it has only recently become possible to contemplate
studying and understanding in detail thanks to the existence of corpora.
