By J. C. Wells

Call Deadline: 31-Oct-2012

Call Information:
Call for papers for DISCOURS, Issue 12

Coordination: Saveria Colonna & Sarah Schimke

We are inviting submissions for the next issue of DISCOURS, to appear in June 2013.

DISCOURS is an international and interdisciplinary e-journal, which publishes two issues a year, and occasional special issues. The journal focuses on the following topics: discourse structure, cohesion, co-reference, linearization, indexation, information structure, word order, segmentation markers, integration markers, discourse relations, cognitive processes involved in discourse comprehension and production, and other related topics.

It is intended as a forum for exchanging and comparing data, analyses and opinions for all linguists, psycholinguists and computer linguists working in fields involving the description, comprehension, formalization and processing of text organization.

For this issue, we are particularly interested in studies that focus on psycholinguistic aspects of discourse comprehension and production.

Papers (in English or French) should be sent to before October 31, 2012. Full instructions can be found on the website (
