Meeting Description:

This conference aims to take stock of the most recent advances in the GM-F comparative field and to serve as a meeting place and exchange between researchers and young researchers working in different frameworks and theoretical programs. The objective would be to sketch the current cartography of this field and to work on its potential and its visibility in the LDS landscape. The recent evolution of descriptive models, the multiplication of available resources, thanks in particular to digital processing and the development of corpus linguistics, have led to the emergence of approaches transcending traditional grammatical and / or typological categories turning to textual and contextual data.

The various contributions of this conference will thus tend to explore the themes which participate in the renewal of methods and approaches in this field.
- discursive markers
- determination, indefinite, quantification
- mode and modality
- negation, interrogation
- derivational morphology (diminutive, meliorative, pejorative, etc.)

This first meeting would also serve as a basis for the formation of an academic network (establishments, research laboratories, etc.) which would aim to continue these exchanges in the form of conferences or regular events organized by the members of the network.
