 CALL FOR PAPERS
 IDIOMS
 September 2-4, 1992, Tilburg, The Netherlands
Idioms are the subject of research in theoretical linguistics, computational
linguistics, and psycholinguistics.
The aim of the IDIOMS conference is to bring together scholars from these
disciplines with an interest in idioms, in order to further the interaction
between these disciplines and to transfer results from one discipline to
another.
The theme of IDIOMS is the representation of idioms at the various levels of
grammar and the analysis and generation of idioms both in psychological models
of the human language faculty, and in computational and theoretical linguistic
frameworks.
Original papers are sollicited, including but not limited to
- comparison of idiomatic expressions to other forms of non-literal language.
- accounts of the prosodic, morphological, syntactic, semantic and pragmatic
behaviour of idioms.
- lexical representation of idioms; representation of idioms in
 the mental lexicon.
- ambiguity resolution in the case of idiomatic expressions.
- analysis and generation of idioms.
In order to guarantee the multi-disciplinary character of the workshop,
contributions should stress relevance to the study of idioms, rather
than focus on the relevance to the study of theoretical and
computational linguistic formalisms or psychological models.
The conference comprises invited and contributed papers. Papers will be one
hour including discussion. The following speakers have been invited:
- Joan Bresnan (Stanford University) (to be confirmed)
- Lynn Frazier (University of Massachusetts) (to be confirmed)
- Raymond Gibbs (University of California at Santa Cruz)
- George Lakoff (Berkely University) (to be confirmed)
- Igor Mel'cuk (Universite' Quebec Montreal) (to be confirmed)
