Call for papers Studii de lingvistică vol. 7/2017, thematic issue

The journal Studii de lingvistică is the linguistics journal of the Faculty of Letters of the University of Oradea, Romania. It is an annual publication which comes out in the last trimester of each year and includes articles and reviews from all the fields of linguistics, in thematic issues or varia. Issues 1/2011, 2/2012, 3/2013, 4/2014, 5/2015 and 6/2016 are available at

Issue 7/2017 welcomes submissions on the topic ''Online corpora and lexical resources: a new language heritage?'' (Corpus et référentiels en ligne : un nouveau patrimoine langagier ?).

Corpora group together various kinds of data (written, oral, iconic, etc.) which can be exploited by the new data processing technologies. Setting up corpora, with a scientific aim, enables to apprehend various discourse genres: historical, media, literary, social, cultural, scientific, institutional, academic and professional discourse, using authentic and contemporary data.

In other words, corpora are more than a mere tool; they introduce a new paradigm into human sciences and more precisely into linguistic studies. Their exploitation enables researchers to perform more advanced analysis not only from a lexical, morphological, syntactic, semantic or pragmatic perspective, but also in the field of discourse analysis (observation of recurrent phenomena, collocations, fixed expressions or idioms, text typology, analysis of subjectivity, analysis of polarity, etc.).

The present issue addresses the adaptation and the appropriateness of linguistic methods and approaches applied to corpora as well as mono- and multilingual lexical resources obtained from corpora exploitation (glossaries, databases, electronic dictionaries, online dictionaries, linguistic analysis tools, etc.). As corpora/lexical resources are precious tools for linguists, the way in which linguistics interferes in their construction, development and exploitation will also be dealt with.

Languages under scrutiny: Romance and Germanic languages.

Varia articles may also be accepted as well as book reviews.
