Meeting Description:

The 6th Quantitative Investigations in Theoretical Linguistics conference (QITL) offers a platform for the theoretically motivated and anchored discussion of quantitative investigation of natural language. The increasing availability of empirical data has become central in the development and investigation of theories about natural language and its processing by human beings.


The registration is open.

Final Call for Papers:

Deadline Extension to 10 August 2015

Since the turn of the millennium, the application of quantitative methods on empirical data, with increasing sophistication and complexity, has become widely accepted as central in the development and testing of theoretical hypotheses concerning the nature of natural language and its processing by human beings. However, it is also increasingly recognized that quantitative investigations should be theoretically motivated and anchored. Quantitative analyses are not performed in isolation, but contribute to the regular scientific process of theoretical falsification. Simply put, quantitative methods and theoretical developments should mutually feed and influence each other.

Quantitative Investigations in Theoretical Linguistics (QITL) offers a forum for theoretically aware and methodologically advanced researchers from any linguistic discipline or methodology, and in particular, but not limited to:

- Quantitative corpus based studies
- Psycholinguistics
- Variational Linguistics
- Computational linguistics / NLP
- Historical linguistics
- Typology
- Lexical Semantics
- Second language acquisition / applied linguistics
- Contact Linguistics
- First language acquisition
