Meeting Description:

International Meeting on Text Structure: Form, Meaning, and Processing
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 corpuslinguistic and psycholinguistic 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.

Call for Papers

We welcome submissions addressing issues of text structure form various
perspectives such as syntax, formal semantics and pragmatics, typology,
psycholinguistics, or computational linguistics. The topics may include but are
not restricted to

- information structure
- differences between subordination and co-ordination
- discourse conditions on the use of non-canonical structures
- resolution of cross-sentential anaphora or ellipsis
- discourse relations
- modeling of contextual parameters
- the influence of tense, mood, and aspect on text structure
- discourse particles
- typological variation
- text structure in signed and spoken modality
- the linguistic study of literary texts

Invited Speakers:
Barbara Kaup (Tübingen)
Josep Quer (Barcelona)
