Linguistica - Spoken discourse 

The journal Linguistica, published
by the Faculty of Arts, University of Ljubljana (Slovenia), will devote
its 52th issue (2012) to spoken discourse.

Over the last decades,
spoken discourse has been one of the most prominent topics of linguistic
research. This can probably be attributed to two principal
characteristics of spoken discourse: its formal complexity and
variability, on the one hand, and the diversity of functions performed
by different linguistic practices.

Contributions may deal with
methodological aspects of spoken discourse analysis as well as with
specific linguistic practices. Possible topics could include the

- public discourse,
- spontaneous speech,
- language
- interpreting,
- sociolinguistics,
- speech pathology,
forensic linguistics,
- language technologies,
- spoken discourse in
language reference sources,
- terminology of spoken discourse
The list is not exhaustive and proposals concerning other
aspects of spoken discourse analysis are also welcome.

Authors are

paper by 10th March 2012 on the website in the following two steps:

Each abstract will be
