Call for papers for the next issue of CORPUS (2013): Dialectology.
CORPUS is an international journal, published once a year in a paper version as well as in a free online version (six months later). Its articles are reviewed by a scientific committee. CORPUS investigates all the aspects of corpus linguistics: theoretical, epistemological, and methodological, whatever linguistic field and language. The successive issues of the journal aim at developing an in-depth reflection on the role corpora hold in contemporary linguistic research along with a reflexive analysis on the collection and implementation of the mentioned corpora. Concomitantly, the heuristic processes uniting the gathering and the structuring of empirical data on the one hand, and the emergence or the validation of the linguistic hypotheses on the other hand, are also sought to be evaluated and made explicit.
The previous issues are available at:
The articles can be written in French, English, and possibly in Spanish or Italian.
Traditionally, dialectologists are specialists in the development and use of large corpora, as evidenced by the large amount of linguistic atlases and databases. The aim of this issue is to highlight their studies based on dialectal corpora (whatever their linguistic domain), to show their peculiarities, and to consider the implications for general linguistics.
