Meeting Description:

Relative Frequencies of Nouns, Pronouns, and Verbs in Discourse
An International Workshop
August 12-13, 2013
Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig, Germany
http://www.eva.mpg.de/lingua/conference/2013_NTVR/

The ratio of noun, pronoun, and verb tokens in discourse varies both within and across languages. This variation may be related to a host of factors. For instance, cross-linguistic differences may be due to typological factors such as the syntax and morphology of grammatical relations, or differences in cultural traditions. Variation within languages may be related to, e.g., patterns in content choice, narrative strategies, genre, or stages in language acquisition.

Invited Speakers:

Wallace Chafe (UC Santa Barbara)
Stefan Evert (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg)

The workshop will include a special session to discuss among the participants future directions of cross-disciplinary corpus-based research on relative frequencies of parts of speech.

The workshop is organized by the project ‘The Relative Frequencies of Nouns, Pronouns, and Verbs Cross-linguistically’ (http://www.eva.mpg.de/lingua/research/relative-frequencies.php), which is funded by the Volkswagen Foundation’s DoBeS Program (http://www.volkswagenstiftung.de/en/funding/completed-initiatives/documentation-of-endangered-languages.html).

The workshop will be held adjacent to the Association for Linguistic Typology’s 10th Biennial Conference (ALT 10), also in Leipzig (http://www.eva.mpg.de/lingua/conference/2013_ALT10).

Call for Papers:

The aim of this workshop is to bring together scholars interested in any aspect of the frequencies of nouns, pronouns, and verbs from disciplines such as corpus linguistics, typology, language acquisition, cognitive linguistics, genre studies, stylistics, and others. We invite abstracts for cross-linguistic papers as well as studies on individual languages, and papers that focus on methodology.

Abstracts for 30-minute talks (plus 10 minutes discussion time) should have a maximum length of 500 words or one single-spaced page and be submitted as anonymized pdf files sent as email attachments to frank_seifart at eva.mpg.de. Please specify in the email body the authors’ name(s), contact information (email, phone, fax), and the abstract title.

New deadline for abstract submission: March 15, 2013
New notification of acceptance: April 30, 2013
