Full Title: IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication
Linguistic Field(s): Text/Corpus Linguistics
Call Deadline: 01-Jul-2005
The IEEE Transactions on Professional Communication will publish a special
issue in September 2006 devoted to research in corpus linguistics for
professional communication. See details below.
Insights from Corpus Linguistics for Professional Communication
Corpus linguistics, broadly defined, is the systematic study of human
language via high or low-tech analyses of corpora that consist of authentic
examples of language in use. As a powerful research methodology, corpus
linguistics can offer professionals in the workplace, as well as educators
in academe, new insights into features and phenomena of professional
communicative practice among members of various professions.
This special issue will feature successful examples of corpus linguistic
research that reveal significant things about language use in professional
communities which will be helpful to professionals who use professional
language as well as helpful to educators who teach it.
Papers of particular interest for this special issue will be those which
reveal significant linguistic insights in any of the following domains.
Other areas of investigation, however, are also welcome.
- spoken or written professional genres
- language use by seasoned professionals
- language use by novices
- native or nonnative speaker discourse
- hierarchical discourse between superiors and subordinates
- consultant-client discourse
- doctor-patient discourse
- engineer-technical communicator discourse
- author-editor discourse
- author-referee discourse
- project team discourse
- conference presentation/proceedings practices
- discourse for professionals vs. discourse for the public
- discourse in similar genres across different professions
- word choice, word frequencies, or word collocations
- rhetorical moves or patterns
- style or linguistic register
- gender-specific features
Papers should describe research methods and procedures for corpus
selection, construction, and analysis; research results; and realized
or potential applications of the findings.
Submission deadline: July 1, 2005
