Meeting Description:

Twenty-Fifth International Conference
CerLiCO Cercle Linguistique du Centre et de l'Ouest
Université d'Orléans, Orléans, France / 27 Friday - 28 Saturday May 2011

Transcribing, Writing, Formalising - 2:

In order to become a science, linguistics eventually departed from philology. Having turned away from publishing and commenting on texts, it has set up its field of observation outside vernacular writings in order to compare sound forms. Thus, it has given access to all languages (at whatever stage in their evolution), whether they have had a written form or not.

The 25th CerLiCO International Conference will attempt to understand the work of the linguist when he specifies his objects and elaborates his tools. In this perspective it will discuss three fundamental notions, three gestures that are the basis of analysis:

- Transcribing: This amounts to ponder the significance of the conversion of a
sound signal into a graphic representation.

- Writing: This asks the question of the existing relations between a
conventional graphic system of representation and the structure of languages
(phonological, morphological, syntactic, semantic...) within their organisation
and their interactions.

- Formalising: This answers the necessity of an explanatory approach that will
lead to the construction of a system – and no longer a mere inventory. A system
possessing its own internal rules and having universal value in time, space and
society. This would mean fulfilling Saussure’s algebraic linguistics project,
parts of which can be assessed by automatic processing.

Our aim will be to understand what gets accomplished within the movement going
from the signal to modelling and what this work means.

Call for Papers

Presentations will last 25 minutes and will be followed by a 15
minute-discussion. The Conference will include a poster session, and there will
be about 15 presentations altogether. The Proceedings will be published in 2011
in Travaux Linguistiques du CerLiCO, Vol. 25, Presses Universitaires de Rennes.

Submissions should include, in addition to the author's institutional
affiliation and e-mail address, an anonymous abstract of around 500 words /
3,000 signs, with a few references attached. Authors should specify whether they
wish to present a paper or a poster. The abstracts will be posted on the CerLiCO
website and sent to participants on registration for the Conference.

Submissions should be sent in electronic format to :
Noëlle Serpollet & Gabriel Bergounioux : cerlico.llsh[]univ-orleans.fr
no later than 15 September 2010
