Meeting Description:

This international conference is devoted to the phraseology and stylistics of literary language and seeks to provide a platform for discussing innovative approaches to the phraseology of literary language. The main focus of the conference is on the linguistic and discursive analysis of statistically significant multi-word expressions in literary texts, statistical genre analysis and literary stylistics. Submissions should primarily but not exclusively deal with novels in German, English and French published since 1950. However, papers focusing on literary works from other periods will also be welcome.

The conference will have two sections:

Section 1: statistical research methods and their application to large corpora of fiction

Section 2: linguistic and stylistic analyses of literary genres (corpus stylistics)

The conference languages are German, English and French. A selection of articles will be published in a volume of conference proceedings. An academic committee will be responsible for the selection process.
