Meeting Description:

Linguistic Evidence 2010:
Empirical, Theoretical, and Computational Perspectives

Tübingen, 10-12th February 2010

Aims and Scope:

The field of linguistics is growing more empirical, more technical, and more rigorous. Linguists are spending more time addressing the evidential base of their work, developing tools to gather, process, and exploit linguistic data, and testing assumptions and analyses empirically. There is thus a clear trend for most branches of linguistics to grow more related to the field of cognitive psychology.

The Collaborative Research Centre 'The Construction of Meaning' in Tübingen (SFB 833) has inherited from the old SFB 441 'Linguistic Data Structures' both the organization of the Linguistic Evidence conference series and the endeavour to more closely integrate data-driven and theory-driven approaches to the study of language representation and processing, language behaviour, and the interaction of language behaviour with other cognitive functions and phenomena.

Call for Papers:

We invite unpublished contributions on the empirical base of linguistic explanation, language processing, and linguistic theory from all fields of linguistics. Papers might concern:

- The mental and computational processing of linguistic structures at any level of analysis (syntactic, semantic, phonological, lexical, discourse, ... )

- The application of data from linguistic corpora, psycholinguistic and neurolinguistic experimentation, language acquisition and loss, language pathology, literary texts, fieldwork, and diachronic evidence.

- The implications for the representation language structures of data gathered by whatever means.

- The introduction to the linguistic world of data types, collection methods, analytical procedures, interpretative possibilities.

The ideal paper at Linguistic Evidence combines both innovative data gathering and a discussion of the implications of the findings for linguistics. In practice, however, interesting papers which make a contribution to just one of these are often positively reviewed.


We invite abstracts for 25+10 minute talks and also for poster presentations. Unless you specify otherwise on your abstract, we shall consider all submissions first as talks and then as posters. We will consider at most one single-authored paper and one joint-authored paper per person.

Abstracts should be no more than 3 pages long including data, graphics and references. They should have a 2.5cm margin on all sides, and should be written in at least 11 point font.

Deadline for abstract submission: 19th October 2009.

Please send one abstract with author(s) name(s) and affiliation and one without author(s) name(s) and affiliation. Electronic submission as pdf is preferred, to LingEvid2010uni-tuebingen.de

Address for postal and fax submissions:

Britta Stolterfoht
Linguistic Evidence 2010
SFB 833
Nauklerstrasse 35
72074 Tübingen

We intend to publish selected papers in a separate proceedings volume, as at the preceding conferences.

Student presenters may be subsidized.
