Meeting Description:

Middle and Modern English Corpus Linguistics 2011 will be held in Osaka,
Japan 26-29 August 2011.

The conference will focus on corpus-based synchronic and diachronic
studies of Middle and Modern English. We would particularly welcome
papers which employ or respond to new diachronic corpora (such as the
Time Corpus and the Corpus of Historical American English by Mark
Davies), or which take a variationist approach to Present-day English (e.g.
Twentieth-Century English: History, Variation and Standardization by
Christian Mair).

The first MMECL, held in Innsbruck, Austria in 2009, was successful with
more than 60 participants from all over the world. Its proceedings are now
being edited for publication by Manfred Markus, Yoko Iyeiri, Reinhard
Heuberger and Emil Chamson.

Call For Papers

We cordially invite you to participate and to offer a presentation on historical
English corpus linguistics from Middle English to Modern English. Given the
relatively long period at issue, from 1100 to 2010, we would like to
encourage broad topics, both in corpus compilation and exploitation.

Please submit your proposal for a paper (20 minutes plus 10 minutes
discussion) in the form of 300-word abstract to the conference contact email
address by 18 February 2011.

Decisions on the acceptance of proposals can be expected six weeks later.

The language of the conference is English. All abstracts should be in
