Meeting Description:

Computational Stylistics: Beyond concordances and grammar checkers

A workshop at the European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information
2010, in Copenhagen.

Call for Papers

Methods of automatic text classification have been applied widely and
extensively, ranging in category granularity and with respect to both solely
internal properties of texts and text-external variables. Categories may be
coarse-grained or extremely fine-grained, with any number of applications.

Approaches driven by statistics amassed over corpora are compatible with (and
informed by) precision analyses over selected texts, as practiced widely in the
digital humanities and some approaches to discourse representation theory.
Neither the 'macro' level analysis supplied by corpus linguistics nor the
'micro' level analysis of individual texts is in any way new. However, the
potential for their interaction and for assessing supra-lexical linguistic
features of texts within stylistic analysis is growing. The aim of this
workshop is to highlight current work that advances and applies computational

Papers sought for presentation will address any of the topics related to the
theme of the workshop, including:
- relations between demographic and linguistic variables
- reliability and validity of complexity and other indices
- plot structure analysis
- sentiment, theme and semantic relation analysis
- dramatis personae analysis
- tracking stylistic change
- cross-cultural variations in effects

Each of ten to fifteen presentations will have a tutorial element situating the
problem and hypotheses explored, as well as spelling out the methods of
analysis, followed by the main substance of the research findings. Thus, the
workshop proposes pedagogical value appropriate to ESSLLI, at the same time as
recording recent research advances.

Important note about the European Summer School in Logic Language
and Information:

Authors of accepted papers to ESSLLI workshops must register as participants in
the whole of ESSLLI, even if they intend to participate in only the week of
ESSLLI in which the workshop is scheduled. Traditionally, presenters of papers
accepted to workshops have been allowed to register with fees set at the student
early-registration rate.
