Meeting Description: 

Modelling Non-Standardized Writing
Workshop at the 35th Annual Conference of the German Linguistic Society (DGfS)
Potsdam, Germany 

Invited Speakers:

Jennifer Foster (Dublin City University, Ireland)
Christian Mair (University of Freiburg, Germany)

Non-standardized writing can be found in various contexts: for instance, when there are no generally established written language standards (e.g. in languages with an emergent writing system); when existing standards are deliberately ignored by the authors (in creative writing) or replaced by principles of verbalization that are borrowed from oral communication (e.g. when passing notes in a classroom); or when the norms of standard written language have not yet been fully acquired (as in learner texts). In particular, non-standardized writing plays an important role in research on Internet-based communication. The language used in emails, online forums, chats, blogs, etc. sometimes shows significant deviations from standard written language, while exhibiting characteristics of oral language at the levels of lexicon, morphology, and syntax. Well-known phenomena include nonstandard and creative spellings, ad-hoc speedwriting, graphic emulation of prosody and emphasis, acronyms, emoticons, and written representation of non-verbal behavior.

The systematic description of non-standardized writing and its structural and functional analysis are key challenges not only for research on Internet-based communication but also for data-based linguistic studies and corpus creation in many other research areas. The goal of the workshop is to shed light on this problem from the perspective of various research fields and to explore common issues and possible solutions. The main focus is on non-standardized writing phenomena in:

Genres of Internet-based communication
Language communities with emergent literacy
Historic varieties of language
Learner texts
