Call Deadline: 01-Jul-2010
The aim of this conference is to bring together linguists from different
theoretical perspectives to discuss current research on Ibero-Romance languages.
Call for Papers
We invite both papers presenting empirical analyses of specific linguistic
phenomena and more general theoretical papers. We will group them as much as
possible in the following three sections:
Section 1: Historical Linguistics
This section welcomes diachronic studies on syntactic and/or semantic change,
lexicon and etymology. The focus may be on a specific historical period or on
various diachronic stages of one language envisaged from the general linguistic
evolution in the Iberian Peninsula and/or in Latin America. The analysis of
particular changes is expected to favour the discussion on theoretical models
concerned with language change.
Section 2: Linguistics and cognition
This section aims at answering the question as to how language structures
conceptual categories such as space and time, entities and processes,
localisation and motion, force and causal relations. Reflection can extend to
the structuring of ideational and affective categories attributed to cognitive
agents, e.g. attention and perspective, volition and intention, or dwell on the
existence of concurring forms of expression within the same language, as well as
on paradigmatic variation from one language to the other.
Section 3: Discourse linguistics
Discourse linguistics privileges the study of variation phenomena linked to the
perspective of the enunciation, the communication and social interaction between
speech participants. This vast domain includes the analysis of discourse markers
(argumentative operators, connectives) and of lexical and morpho-syntactic modal
elements in terms of discourse strategies and pragmatic inferencing.

references), and contain three to five key words specifying the (sub)domain, the
topic and the approach. They should comply with the formatting of the MS Word
