Présentation générale

Ce Centre regroupe un ensemble de linguistes et de spécialistes des langues, qui représentent les principaux courants de la linguistique contemporaine. Le centre couvre une grande partie des développements théoriques et pratiques des sciences du langage dans leur ensemble (phonétique, phonologie, syntaxe, sémantique, lexique, linguistique de l’énonciation, linguistique cognitive, neurolinguistique, linguistique appliquée, didactique des langues, linguistique générale, linguistique française, linguistique anglaise, linguistique romane, linguistique du texte et du discours).

Les principaux axes de recherches qui fédèrent les différents sous-groupes de recherches sont : 1) le traitement et analyse de corpus oraux et électroniques, 2) l'analyse du discours, rhétorique et argumentation, 3) la linguistique de la phrase et du texte, 4) l'interaction entre la sémantique, la syntaxe et la pragmatique, 5) la sociolinguistique, contacts entre les langues et didactique des langues étudiées dans le Département de Langues et Lettres, 6) la phonétique, phonologie et description des langues sans écriture.

Le Centre LaDisco cherche à promouvoir la recherche en linguistique à travers la réunion des équipes de recherches internes et internationales, et par la construction de programmes communs de recherches sur les thèmes mentionnés ci-dessus.

This Center groups linguists and language specialists representing the main trends in contemporary linguistics. The Center as a whole covers most of the theoretical and practical developments of language sciences (phonetics, phonology, syntax, semantics, lexical studies, discourse linguistics, cognitive linguistics, neurolinguistics, applied linguistics, language teaching, general linguistics, French linguistics, English linguistics, Romance linguistics, text and speech linguistics).

The main axes of research which federate the different research sub-groups are: 1) Treatment and analysis of oral and electronic corpora, 2) Speech analysis, rhetoric and argumentative dimension of languages, 3) Sentence and text linguistics, 4) Interaction between semantics, syntax and pragmatics, 5) Sociolinguistics, contacts between languages and didactics of the languages taught in the department, 6) Phonetics, phonology and description of unwritten languages.

The Center seeks to promote research in linguistics through the meeting of internal and international research teams and by the construction of common research programs around the research themes mentioned above.

VUB: Computational Construction Grammar and Constructional Change — Annual Conference of the Linguistic Society of Belgium

Call For Participation

Computational Construction Grammar and Constructional Change
Annual Conference of the Linguistic Society of Belgium
8 June 2015, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium

After several decades in scientific purgatory, language evolution has reclaimed its place as one of the most important branches in linguistics, and it is increasingly recognized as one of the most crucial sources of evidence for understanding human cognition. This renewed interest is accompanied by exciting breakthroughs in the science of language. Historical linguists can now couple their expertise to powerful methods for retrieving and documenting which changes have taken place. At the same time, construction grammar is increasingly being embraced in all areas of linguistics as a fruitful way of making sense of all these empirical observations. Construction grammar has also enthused formal and computational linguists, who have developed sophisticated tools for exploring issues in language processing and learning, and how new forms of grammar may emerge in speech populations.

Separately, linguists and computational linguists can therefore explain which changes take place in language and how these changes are possible. When working together, however, they can also address the question of why language evolves over time and how it emerged in the first place. This year, the BKL-CBL conference therefore brings together top researchers from both fields to put evidence and methods from both perspectives on the table, and to take up the challenge of uniting these efforts.

Invited Speakers
The conference contains presentations by 5 different keynote speakers.
* Graeme Trousdale (University of Edinburgh)
* Luc Steels (VUB/ IBE Barcelona)
* Kristin Davidse (University of Leuven)
* Peter Petré (University of Lille)
* Arie Verhagen (University of Leiden)

Poster Presentations
We still accept 500-word abstracts for poster presentations. All presentations must represent original, unpublished work not currently under review elsewhere. Work presented at the conference can be selected as a contribution for a special issue of the Belgian Journal of Linguistics (Summer 2016).

Important dates
* Abstract Submission: 29 May 2015
* Notification of acceptance: 1 June 2015
