Papers are invited on a broad range of themes in the areas of contrastive
linguistics provided they address one or more of the following topics: 

- The aims, objectives and scope of contrastive linguistics; its relationship
with neighbouring disciplines such as historical, typological,
micro-variationist, intercultural and contact linguistics 
- Corpus-based research and its relationship with contrastive studies 
- Relations between contrastive linguistics and translation
- The role of theoretical frameworks; comparability, incommensurability and
the tertium comparationis; the necessity and significance of the
'socio-cultural link' 
- Different frameworks on contrasting languages
- The significance of the contrastive perspective for language-specific
description on the one hand and general interface issues on the other (e.g.
phonology/ morphology/ syntax/ /semantics/pragmatics) 
- Contrasts between languages at the levels of text, register, discourse, and
information structure; contrasts between dialects; contrasts between dialects
and standard languages
