Meeting Description:

The 2nd edition of the international Biennial Conference on the Diachrony of English will take place at Francois Rabelais University, Tours, France on June 15th-16th 2011. The main objective of the conference is to provide linguists working on the history of English, both here in France and overseas, with an opportunity to present their work and a forum within which to discuss current issues in English diachronic linguistics.

Parallel to the conference itself, a series of workshops will also be organized to allow colleagues who are not specialists to improve their knowledge of Old and Middle English.

2nd Call for Papers:

The objective of the conference being to bring together colleagues working in a wide variety of fields, there is no fixed theme for the conference. Papers (30 minutes, followed by 10 minutes discussion) are invited on all topics, including syntax, semantics, pragmatics, and lexicography, as well as grammaticalisation, language contact and even other languages likely to have influenced the development of English. Similarly, since the content will not be limited to any particular framework, all theoretical approaches are welcome.

If you would like to present a paper, please send an abstract of approximately 20-30 lines (not including title and references), and preferably in PDF or Word format, to either:

Brian Lowrey (brian.lowreyu-picardie.fr) or

Fabienne Toupin (fabienne.toupinuniv-tours.fr)

Submissions should reach us by April 1st, 2011. Notification of acceptance will be sent during April, 2011.
