Call Deadline: 07-Feb-2014

Meeting Description:

The aim of the conference is to continue the success of the previous six IVACS conferences held at the Universities of Limerick (2002, 2008), Belfast, (2004), and Nottingham (2006), Edinburgh (2010) and Leeds (2012). The theme of the conference is intended to draw our attention to some of the challenges and opportunities which Corpus Linguistics has encountered, continues to encounter and may well encounter in the future. It is hoped that the conference will offer a snapshot of the various perspectives which corpus linguistics provides within and beyond the field of applied linguistics.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

Michael McCarthy, University of Nottingham
Ronald Carter, University of Nottingham
Brona Murphy, University of Edinburgh
Dawn Knight, Newcastle University
Tony McEnery, Lancaster University
Andrew Wilson, Lancaster University

- Corpus linguistics and applied linguistics: Data-driven learning; learner corpora; testing; teacher education; non-native speakers of English/English as an International Language (EIL)/English as a Lingua Franca (ELF)
- Corpus linguistics and analysing discourse: Using CL in conjunction with other methodologies, e.g. discourse analysis, conversation analysis, critical discourse analysis; using cl to look at language in specific contexts, e.g. media discourse, classroom discourse, workplace discourse, academic discourse
- Corpus linguistics and literature (including corpus stylistics; CL and translation studies)
- Corpus linguistics and forensic linguistics
- Corpus linguistics and pragmatics
- Corpus linguistics and speech technology
- Corpus linguistics and sociolinguistics

Papers focusing on languages other than English, and non-native varieties of English are particularly welcome.
