Meeting Description:

Every year, the CLILLAC-ARP research team (Centre de Linguistique Inter-Langues, de Lexicologie, de Linguistique Anglaise et de Corpus & Atelier de Recherche sur la Parole) at the Université Paris Diderot-Paris 7 organizes a one-day conference showcasing the work of PhD students in all fields of linguistics. The conference will take place on Friday, March 28, 2014, on the university campus in Paris.


For the fourth edition of DoSciLa, we have chosen to focus on Contacts—between, within, or through languages. This theme is meant to encourage an exploration of the idea of contact in its broadest sense, i.e. connections being established and severed, and bringing about exchanges and transformations.

The notion of contacts between languages includes (but is not limited to) issues such as borrowing, pidginization, creolization, language for specific purposes (LSP), bi- and plurilingualism, code-switching, diglossia, gravitation, glottopolitics, didactics, acquisition, and translation.

The effects of contacts within languages can be found in speech sounds, at the segmental or suprasegmental level; at the syntactic or morphosyntactic level; as well as in any kind of intralinguistic variation—social, diastratic, geographic, situational, etc. (Once again, this list is not meant to be comprehensive.)

The idea of contacts through languages covers questions of research in communication, including, among other topics, rhetoric, intersubjectivity, diaphasic variation, glottopolitics, didactics, acquisition processes, translation, and LSP.

2nd Call for Papers:

We would like to solicit papers on any topic, from any area of linguistics, seen through the prism of our theme: Contacts. We invite participants to reflect upon questions of linguistic influence and adaptability, harmonies and agreements, contrasts and conflicts, in any form of spoken or written language, diachronically as well as synchronically.

PhD students who wish to submit an abstract will find all relevant information in the call for papers or at the conference page:
