Meeting Description:

International Meeting on Text Structure: Form, Meaning, and Processing
1.-3.7.2010
Universtität Göttingen

While the description and theoretical analysis of isolated levels of text
structure has matured substantially over the last thirty years, we are only
beginning to understand the interaction between different levels and the surplus
literary effects created by such interactions. In addition to methods of formal
syntax, semantics, and pragmatics, strongly empirically oriented subdisciplines
of linguistics such as corpuslinguistics and psycholinguistics have provided
central insights for the study of linguistic phenomena beyond the sentence
level. It is also necessary to include typological and variationist perspectives
to identify the full range and the relative impact of factors and means
exploited in the structuring of text in the languages of the world.

The program for the meeting is now available at the conference web site at:

We would like to ask all participants to register via the online registration form:
