Meeting Description:

The aim of the International Contrastive Linguistics Conference 2010 is to
encourage the fine-grained comparative analyses between two (or more) languages
from different theoretical perspectives and with different goals. Although
contrastive linguistics has long been associated primarily with applied
linguistics (in particular foreign language teaching), it is here seen as a
subdiscipline of comparative linguistics with major theoretical implications,
which may contribute to our understanding of cross-linguistic and
language-internal variation.

Call for Papers

The thematic focus of the 2010 edition of the International Contrastive
Linguistics Conference will be on the relationship between contrastive
linguistics and other approaches to language comparison. What are the specific
benefits of the contrastive approach? How can methodologies and theoretical
insights of other approaches to language comparison contribute to the further
development of contrastive linguistics?

Therefore we invited well-known specialist from various fields of language
comparison to shed light on these questions in plenary talks:
- Johan Van der Auwera (Universiteit Antwerpen)
Contrastive linguistics and typology
- Wayne Harbert (Cornell University)
Contrastive linguistics and historical comparative linguistics
- Helga Kotthoff (Universität Freiburg)
Contrastive linguistics and intercultural communication
- Cecilia Poletto (Università Venetia)
Contrastive linguistics and micro variation

The International Contrastive Linguistics Conference will have thematic session
on the topics represented by the above mentioned plenaries. Papers dealing with
those aspects are especially welcome.

Apart from that, ICLC 6 gives you the opportunity to propose other thematic
sessions within the broad field of contrastive linguistics. Proposals are to be
sent to the organizers (ICLC6fu-berlin.de) by February 20, 2010. They should
contain a description of the subject and its relevance for the further
development of contrastive linguistics as well as names of possible contributors.

The topics selected for thematic sessions will be made available on the website
by March 1, 2010. We welcome contributions dealing with all research areas of
contrastive linguistics. We especially encourage contributions to the thematic
