Call for Papers:
Papers are invited on a broad range of themes in the areas of contrastive linguistics provided they address one or more of the following topics:
– The aims, objectives and scope of contrastive linguistics; its relationship with neighbouring disciplines such as historical, typological, micro-variationist, intercultural and contact linguistics
– Corpus-based research and its relationship with contrastive studies
– Relations between contrastive linguistics and translation
– The role of theoretical frameworks; comparability, incommensurability and the tertium comparationis; the necessity and significance of the 'socio-cultural link'
– Different frameworks on contrasting languages
– The significance of the contrastive perspective for language-specific description on the one hand and general interface issues on the other (e.g. phonology/ morphology/ syntax/ /semantics/pragmatics)
– Contrasts between languages at the levels of text, register, discourse, and information structure; contrasts between dialects; contrasts between dialects and standard languages
Papers will last 30 minutes: 20 minutes for presentation, 10 minutes for discussion. All submissions will be anonymously evaluated by members of the scientific committee with the relevant expertise.
