Meeting Description:

Created in 1998, the Rencontres Jeunes Chercheurs (RJC) of the Doctoral School « Langage et langues » (ED 268, Sorbonne Nouvelle University- Paris 3) is an opportunity for junior researchers preparing for a master's degree or a doctorate, but also for post-doctorates, to present their work in paper or poster sessions.

The conference is open to graduate students (master's degree, doctorate), and researchers. There is no registration fee. A certificate of attendance will be issued to participants.

Call for Papers:

The diverse relations between the three terms which we would like to consider from a linguistic point of view offer many possibilities of scientific investigation in all fields of Language Sciences. The RJC 2014 invite the participants to think about the notions of 'mistake', 'error' and 'correction' and their present relevance: the participants can study the relations between these three terms, describe their treatment and look into the methodological questions and historical issues that they raise in Language Sciences. We will particularly welcome presentations in the following fields:

- First and second language acquisition
- Discourse analysis
- Linguistic anthropology
- Language and culture pedagogy
- Textual genetics
- History of linguistic ideas
- General linguistics
- Historical and comparative linguistics
- Morphology
- Philology
- Phonetics
- Phonology
- Pragmatics
- Psycholinguistics
- Rhetoric
- Semantics
- Sociolinguistics
- Syntax
- Translation studies
- Linguistic typology


Proposals for oral presentations should be typed in Times New Roman 12, simple spacing, in the form of a summary of 1000 words at most (including references) and proposals for posters in the form of a summary of 500 words (including references). In the case of phonetic transcriptions, please use the SILDoulos font here.

Propositions are to be sent to the Organization Committee by email (, in .rtf format. They should be sent twice:

The first one will be named 'anon_NAME_rjc2014.rtf' (for example: 'anon_SMITH_rjc2014.rtf') and will contain:

- Title
- Fields of research
- 5 keywords
- Summary
- Type of presentation (oral presentation or poster)

The second named 'NAME_rjc2014.rtf' (for example: 'SMITH_rjc2014.rtf') will contain the following information, besides the previous ones:

- Personal data (last name, first name, e-mail and personal postal address)
- University
- Level of study (master / doctorate / postdoc; specify the number of years for the doctorate)
- Research supervisor(s)

Only one submission will be examined for each participant.

The languages for oral presentations and posters are English or French. Oral presentations will be allocated 20 minutes + 10 minutes for questions. Poster authors will be invited to give a short oral presentation of their work.
