Meeting Description:

GRATO – International Conference on Grammar & Text – is a biannual conference that aims to deepen the relationship between grammar and text / discourse, as a space for convergence and reciprocal subsidiarity. It brings together contributions from linguists whose research work is situated in different theoretical-methodological frameworks, privileging the treatment of topics of morphology, semantics, text theory and discourse analysis, from synchronic and diachronic perspectives.

GRATO 2021 will be held online, on 18 - 20 of November 2021, and will privilege the following thematic axes:
1. Relationships and interactions between Grammar and Text;
2. Forms and constructions – descriptions and perspectives;
3. Between fact and opinion – grammatical, discursive and textual configurations;
4. Didactics and literacy in Grammar and Text.
