Nouvelles Perspectives en Sémantique Lexicale et en Organisation du Discours

Ce sujet peut être abordé notamment à partir du champ du vocabulaire psychique (linguistique de l'affectivité, sensations, attitudes, intentionnalité).

2nd Call for Papers:

There will be three thematic strands:

1. Collocation/Colligation and Discourse Organization: Interlingual and Intralingual Aspects2. New Approaches in Corpus Linguistics3. New Perspectives for Lexicography and Language Teaching

In line with these three themes, the organizers invite three types of proposals:

a) Studies which explore the collocational and colligational behaviour of nouns, verbs and adjectives (preferably emotion words such as anger, surprise, contemptuous) and/or discuss new approaches to contrastive lexico-grammatical analysis. The idea is to extend studies of collocation and colligation to include the text level (i.e. the role words play in structuring scenarios, argumentation, etc.)b) Corpus-based statistical studiesc) Studies using the results of (contrastive) lexico-grammatical and/or discourse analysis to guide improvement in lexicography and language teaching

The languages of the conference are English and French. Contingent upon review and acceptance by the academic committee, selected papers from the conference will be published in book form or as a special issue of a journal.

Abstracts should be no more than a single page in length, including the bibliography. Send abstract submissions via email to colloqueemolex.eu
