Meeting Description:

Speech acts and context-bound interaction in the light of corpora and
data-bases: corpus projects and application

3rd Freiburg Workshop on Romance Corpus Linguistics: Corpora and Pragmatics

3rd (and last) Call for Papers

Corpus linguistics as a methodological approach aiming at collecting, marking-up
and documenting real-life language data is confronted with particular challenges
when its products - corpora and linguistic data-bases - are intended to be
useful and usable for pragmatic research issues.

Among the issues that will be dealt with in this workshop are the following:

-which elements of the extra-linguistic context are selected, how are they
encoded, and in which way can they be linked to the verbal data?

-Which types of annotation methods and which technical options of multimediality
and information layering are available in order to document para-linguistic
(mimic or gestural-kinetic) action?

-According to which sociolinguistic or historical parameters are texts and
language data chosen in order to arrive at an adequate corpus-based description
of the synchronic variation and the diachronic dynamism of speech acts,
registers and genres, norms of linguistic behavior, and traditions of speaking?

-To which extent are frequency values and patterns of co-occurrence -
information so easily obtained through computer-aided corpus-based research -
useful for a better understanding of speaking in a context which, according to
its basic conception, is oriented towards individual case studies?

Plenary speakers and participants of round tables:
- Carla Bazzanella (Torino / Italy)
- Fran├žoise Gadet (Paris / France)
- Martin-Dietrich Glessgen (Zurich / Switzerland)
- Christian Mair (Freiburg / Germany)
- Lorenza Mondada (Lyon / France)
- Lene Schoesler (Copenhagen / Denmark)
- Scott Schwenter (Columbus OH / USA)
- Anne-Catherine Simon (Louvain-la-Neuve / Belgium)
- Pascal Vaillant (Schoelcher / Martinique / France)

The workshop will be organized in two panels, for which paper submissions are
hereby invited:

Panel A ''Corpus projects, language data management and analysis tools'': This
panel will be devoted to the presentation of currently on-going or completed
corpus and database projects in the realm of Romance linguistics; the main focus
will be on corpus projects which aim at complementing textual and transcription
data with context information, situational parameters and meta-information on
textual genres and traditions of speaking.

Panel B ''Corpus-based pragmatic studies on Romance languages'': This panel will
focus on contributions based on corpus data and linguistic databases which
comprise specific linguistic facts and phenomena relating to different areas of
pragmatic research (i.e.: organization of utterances and information structure,
discourse markers and strategies of modalization, gender-specific discourse
structures, synchronic variability and diachronic change in the realization of
speech acts etc.).

Papers may be read in German, any Romance language, and English. More
information on how to submit your paper proposal is found on the conference
web-site. Abstract deadline: March 15, 2006. Confirmation of acceptance will be
sent out before April 15, 2006.

Please check the conference web-site for further details on registration and
fees, scientific and social program of the workshop, travel and accommodation.

D. Pusch, Albert-Ludwigs-Universitaet, Romanisches Seminar, Werthmannplatz 3,
