Argument

The central interest of this conference is to identify the place of theoretical linguistics in a period - the last decade - when the use of quantitative methods in the humanities has grown exponentially.

The expected results of this conference are:

  • a better understanding of how theoretical linguistics are being rethought in the light of quantitative methods
  • a more precise and complete view of the theoretical linguistic reflections behind quantitative linguistics
  • a profitable exchange of methods and quantitative tools tested in research already carried out
  • an overview of future research prospects in quantitative corpus linguistics 
  • future gains for theoretical linguistics

Submissions should highlight the interaction of theoretical and quantitative linguistics

Possible topics may include: 

  • modality 
  • TAM markers
  • discourse markers
  • cohesion markers
  • phraseology

in relation to theoretical questions such as:

  • diachronic variation
  • genre variation
  • linguistic change
  • representation of meaning
