Linguistic Field(s): History of Linguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Call Deadline: 01-Jun-2014

Meeting Description:

The use of corpora has become one of the major methodological trends in contemporary linguistics, with the development of digitization and the use of tools from Natural Language Processing. This conference will provide us with a venue to consider the epistemological and historical grounding of corpora in linguistics.

Partners: SHESL (Société d'Histoire et d'Épistémologie des Sciences du Langage), HTL « Histoire des Théories Linguistiques » (UMR 7597), LLL « Laboratoire Ligérien de Linguistique » (UMR 7270)

Conveners: Gabriel Bergounioux, Bernard Colombat, Jacqueline Léon

Scientific Committee:

Émilie Aussant, Olivier Baude, Gabriel Bergounioux, Danielle Candel, Bernard Colombat, Pascal Cordereix, Anne Grondeux, Bernard Laks, Jacqueline Léon, Franck Neveu, Jean-Marie Pierrel, Valérie Raby, Benoît Sagot

Organizing Committee:

Émilie Aussant, Gabriel Bergounioux, Valentina Bisconti, Danielle Candel, Bernard Colombat, Chloé Laplantine, Jacqueline Léon, Pascale Rabault-Feuerhahn, Valérie Raby, Audrey Viault

Call for Papers:


- Can a corpus-based approach be considered to be strictly empirical, or is it influenced by specific theoretical constraints?
- What is the status of corpora as producers of data within the construct of linguistic representation? How do they contribute to the cumulative nature of knowledge?
- How does the development of linguistic tools (such as digital concordancers) impact the production of more traditional linguistic tools such as grammars and dictionaries?
- What are the effects of corpus data on theories and schools of thought? How would our knowledge be different if they did not exist? Are corpus data central, essential, independent, or, on the other hand, complementary, peripheral, etc? What proof of this can be found in current research?
- Does the increase and diversification of data from corpora contribute to progress in the development of theories?

The languages of the conference are English and French.


June 1: Deadline for submitting abstracts.
July 10: Abstract decisions sent out.

Abstracts (500 words plus bibliography and key words) should be sent to the three conveners (with subject header SHESL_HTL 2015):

- Gabriel Bergounioux: gabriel.bergouniouxuniv-orleans.fr
- Bernard Colombat: bernard.colombatlinguist.univ-paris-diderot.fr
