Full Title: Canadian Journal of Linguistics 


Linguistic Field(s): General Linguistics 

Call Deadline: 15-Oct-2014 

As guest editors for a special edition of the Canadian Journal of Linguistics, we are soliciting papers on the topic of ideophones.

As sensory descriptors, ideophones are fascinating to experts in both linguistics and the arts: they straddle the boundary between a linguistic utterance and an expressive symbol. However, few attempts have been made to capture the behavior of ideophones from an interdisciplinary perspective. This issue could fill that gap.

Research to date has focused mainly on ideophones specific to a particular language (be it Japanese, Yorùbá or Finnish) or a particular geographical region (primarily Africa) but few studies have addressed patterns emerging cross-linguistically and across cultures, or have taken an interdisciplinary perspective. 

Meaning
What is the possible range of meanings that ideophonic expressions encode within/across languages? How do ideophones relate to speaker-addressee knowledge and speaker perspective or veracity?

Structure
What are the means whereby ideophones are integrated into grammatical systems? Specifically, what are the conditions and the patterns for constructing ideophones as lexical categories such as nouns, verbs or adjectives versus grammatical functors, such as aspect markers?

Expression  
What part do ideophones play in distinct registers and/or performance styles? What is the range of functions? How does the use of ideophones affect narration of experiences and sharing of knowledge? What are the differences/similarities in the use of ideophones across distinct genres of verbal art?

This will be competitive: only the top 6-8 papers will be selected. Expressions of interest should be sent to solveiga.armoskaite at rochester.edu or Paivi.Koskinen at kpu.ca  by August 30, 2014, and the final paper should be sent by October 15, 2014.
