Call for papers - Spoken language: a special issue of the journal Studia

Call information:
With this open call we invite authors to submit papers for a special issue
of Studia Linguistica on the topic of Spoken Language (Vol. 62, issues 1/2,
2008). It might be debatable whether spoken language is something other
than language generally; however, it is fair to say that many linguistics
papers, especially those that deal with languages that have a written
tradition, focus on written language. This is in some cases a deliberate
strategy, but it is also reasonable to assume it is partly a function of
convenience: examples are easier to obtain both because of the predominance
of written material on the net, and because of the fact that most collected
corpora contain written language. At the same time many linguistics papers
use fabricated and idealised examples to discuss their topics. In this
issue of Studia Linguistica, we invite papers that focus especially on
spoken language. This means that the empirical data must be from real-life
situations (understood in a broad sense), including spoken language
corpora. We expect many new kinds of data to emerge, and that, as a result,
accepted and/or received conceptions of linguistic phenomena may have to be
revised. We invite papers on a wide range of topics, where the focus may be
on one or more of several different areas of spoken language: syntax,
morphology, phonology, semantics, pragmatics, lexicon.

The deadline for submission is April 15, 2007. Papers should be sent
electronically to the guest editor:
Janne Bondi Johannessen
The Text Laboratory, Dept. of Linguistics and Nordic Languages
University of Oslo
P.O.Box 1102 Blindern
N-0317 Oslo
