Announcing the first ever gathering for scholars interested Linear Unit Grammar. It is now 10 years since Sinclair and Mauranen published their groundbreaking book of the same name. Since then, there has been a groundswell of interest manifesting in publications, conference presentations, and many citations.
On Mar 9 - 10, 2016, the Department of English and American Studies, Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic is holding two days of workshops, seminars, roundtable discussions.
It is intended as a platform for the cross-fertilisation of work and thinking about the application of Linear Unit Grammar to studies in both spoken and written language per se, as well as academic language, syntax, chunking, genre variation, native and non-native speaker language, etc.
At the moment, we are very pleased to announce that Prof. Anna Mauranen will be leading the sessions. Two others who are working with Linear Unit Grammar will also be presenting their work, namely Gerard O’Grady (Cardiff) and Cameron Smart (HK).
Anyone interested in the topic is welcome to contact the convenor with offers, suggestions and queries. The Workshop has a fledgling website at http://bit.ly/linearug
, which includes a contact form.
