Workshop 'FeminineMasculine' in Contrastive Lexicology and Phraseology
Workshop convenor: Ramón Martí Solano

The words and expressions used in natural languages to refer to the sexes, to their relations, resemblances and differences and to their distinctive traits are numerous and varied. They are the product and the reflection not only of the idiosyncrasy of a linguistic community but also of the roles, either real or presupposed, associated in each language to men and women.

Our aim is to bring together researchers in lexicology, lexicography, lexical semantics, phraseology, paremiology and other related fields in order to observe and analyse the concepts of 'feminine'/'masculine', their representations and interrelations.

Call for Papers:

In the framework of this approach, the papers submitted should deal with translation problems (equivalence, adaptation), cultural and linguistic specificities or particular and salient aspects concerning the way in which certain words and phrases function. Other areas of research can be the description and analysis of lexical neology, polysemy, synonymy, lexical and phraseological borrowings and loan translations, the process of lexicalisation and frozenness, language registers, lexical morphology (affixation and compounding), clichés, stereotypical comparisons, etc.

The contrastive character of the linguistic research on this topic is fundamental in order to bring out the convergent and divergent areas between close or distant languages as well as between different varieties of the same language. Thus, contrastive studies dealing with the European, American and African varieties of the official languages of the conference (English, French, Portuguese and Spanish) will be specially appreciated.

Papers should be sent by October 1, 2012 to ramon.marti-solanounilim.fr. They should include a title, a 300-word abstract specifying languages, approach, corpus or type of texts and an essential bibliography. Proponents are asked to indicate their full name, affiliation and academic status.
