Meeting Description
Meaning-Text Theory is a comprehensive linguistic theory characterized in
particular by the central position accorded to semantics and the lexicon the
importance of communicative/information structure, and the reliance on
dependencies at all levels of linguistic representation. Over the last four
decades, Meaning-Text Theory has been applied to research in a wide variety of
fields, including morphological and syntactic theory, lexicography, semantic
representations, natural language processing (in particular machine translation
and text generation) and language learning and teaching. 

This is the fourth in a series of conferences that aims at bringing
together researchers working in Meaning-Text Theory and other related approaches.

MTT'09 will be held in conjunction with the Workshop on Terminology and Lexical
Semantics <http://olst.ling.umontreal.ca/tls09> June 19, 2009.
 
 Submission - On-line submission now open!

Submissions are invited in any area of theoretical, computational and applied
linguistics within the scope of the conference. Graduate students are especially

poster session.

Submissions, in English or French, should take the format of a paper of 8 to 10

Deuxième Appel à Communications
Quatrième conférence internationale sur la Théorie Sens-Texte  (MTT'09)
http://olst.ling.umontreal.ca/mtt09
16-18 juin 2009
Université de Montréal
Montréal (Québec) CANADA

Description de la Conférence
La théorie linguistique Sens-Texte se caractérise par la position centrale qu'y
 occupent la sémantique et le lexique, par l'importance de la structure 
communicative/informationnelle et par le recours aux dépendances à tous les
niveaux de  représentation linguistique. Au cours des quatre dernières
décennies, la théorie  Sens-Texte a été utilisée à des fins de recherche dans
une grande variété de   domaines, incluant la morphologie et la syntaxe, la
lexicographie, les représentations  sémantiques, le traitement automatique de
la langue (en particulier, la traduction  automatique et la génération de
textes) et l'acquisition/enseignement des langues.

Ceci est la quatrième d'une série de conférences qui visent à rassembler les 
chercheurs travaillant avec la théorie Sens-Texte ou  d'autres approches connexes.

MTT'09 se tiendra en conjonction avec le
Workshop on Terminology and Lexical Semantic <http://olst.ling.umontreal.ca/tls09>
19 juin 2009.

Full Title: 7th UK Language Variation & Change Conference 
Short Title: UKLVC7 

Date: 01-Sep-2009 - 03-Sep-2009
Location: Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom 
Contact Person: Lorraine Vincent
Meeting Email: crills at ncl.ac.uk
Web Site: http://www.ncl.ac.uk/linguistics/news/events/item/UKLVC 

Linguistic Field(s): Sociolinguistics 

Call Deadline: 15-Feb-2009 

Meeting Description:

The 7th UK Language Variation & Change Conference will be hosted by Newcastle
University's Centre for Research in Linguistics and Language Sciences. This will
be the latest in a series of biannual conferences showcasing research in
language variation and sociolinguistics attracting participants from the UK and
beyond. 

Call for Papers

The next UK Language Variation and Change Conference will take place at
Newcastle University between 1st and 3rd September 2009 under the auspices of
the Centre for Research in Linguistics and Language Sciences (CRiLLS). This will
be the seventh in a series of biannual conferences showcasing research in
language variation and sociolinguistics attracting participants from the Uk and
beyond. Abstracts are invited that focus on these sub-disciplines of
linguistics, with no requirement that they should be confined to research on
communities within the British Isles.            

The theme of the Newcastle meeting is to be: "Language Variation and Change: The
Local, the Regional and the Supralocal". This particular focus has been chosen
on account of recent interest in the extent to which the linguistic marketplace
and population movements of the 21st century afford new types of speaker choice
at all levels of the grammar and across diverse community types. Contributions
are encouraged to further explore the nature of these choices and the extent to
which they are constrained by linguistic, social and geo-spatial factors.
Contributions are also very welcome on other topics falling within the broad
sphere of language variation and change. 

Invited Speakers: 
Dr. David Britain, Essex University, UK: "The Linguistic Consequences of
Counterurbanisation".
Dr. Alexandra D'Arcy, University of Canterbury, New Zealand: "Constructing
Dialogue in Time and Space". 
Dr. Adam Schembri, University College London, UK: "British Sign Language Corpus
Project: Documenting and describing the local, regional and supralocal in BSL".
Dr. Dom Watt, York University, UK: "Rethinking the Role of Speaker Agency". 

Abstract Submission
Abstracts (max 500 words) can be submitted via the Linguist List EasyAbs portal
at http://linguistlist.org/confcustom/uklvc2009 

Presentations at UKLVC7 will be in the form of 15 minute oral papers with 10
minutes for questions, and poster sessions during which dedicated time will be
provided for participants to browse the posters and talk to the authors. The
deadline for abstract submission is _15th February 2009_. Abstracts will be
reviewed anonymously by two members of the scientific committee, and authors
will be notified of the outcome by 15th March 2009.    
  
Scientific Committee: 
Dr. Isabelle Buchstaller, Newcastle University
Prof. Joan Beal, Sheffield University
Prof. Karen Corrigan, Newcastle University
Prof. Gerry Docherty, Newcastle University
