Dear colleagues,

Contributions are invited for issue n°25 of Discours to appear in December 2019 (

Discours is an international and interdisciplinary e-journal indexed by ERIH PLUS, which publishes two issues a year. The journal focuses on the following topics: discourse structure, cohesion, co-reference, linearization, indexation, information structure, word order, segmentation markers, integration markers, discourse relations, cognitive processes involved in discourse comprehension and production, and other related topics. It is intended as a forum for exchanging and comparing data, analyses and opinions for all linguists, psycholinguists and computer linguists working in fields involving the description, comprehension, formalization and processing of text organization. One of the specific features of the journal is to make available online materials or programs developed for research projects presented in the journal, which may be useful for the research community, such as annotated corpora, coding tables and software tools.

For this issue, we particularly encourage submissions examining the study of relationships between reference chains and textual structures. A reference chain (CR) groups all the referential expressions--proper nouns, definite descriptions, pronouns, etc.--which refer to the same referent (i.e. to the same individual, concrete or abstract object belonging prototypically to the extralinguistic world). As for the textual structures, they contribute with other relational markers to the organization of information in a text, using various devices: thematic progression, typo-dispositional information (paragraphs, titles, subtitles, sections, etc.), linear integration markers (''on the one hand'', ''first''), framing expressions, connectors, etc.

Any proposal articulated around (some of) these elements and aimed at questioning the notions of cohesion and textual coherence is encouraged.
Please send your paper, in English or French, to before June 15, 2019 (see submission instructions at the following address

Deadline for submission: June 15, 2019
