Meeting Description:

Perspectives on Prescriptivism

University of Catania
Ragusa 20-22 April 2006

Three years ago the University of Sheffield hosted The First International Colloquium on Histories of Prescriptivism: Alternative approaches to the study of English 1700-1900 (July 2003) organised by Joan Beal. At that time, papers were invited on any 18th or 19th-century author whose work, or biography, marked them as outside the mainstream in this way, by virtue of being 'radical' in political attitudes, dissenting in religion, female, geographically distant from London (either within, or outside the British Isles), or in any other way. At the end of the three-day session it was decided that the Sicilian, baroque town of Ragusa would be a good place to host the second meeting on eighteenth century prescriptivism.

This time the organisers wish to widen the different perspectives from which to look at linguistic prescriptivism. To what extent is the idea and/or concept of prescriptivism to be considered as a typical product of the eighteenth century? What is the attitude of twenty-first century scholars and language guardians? How is the ELT world and industry reacting to the globalisation of the English language? What are the norms to follow? To what extent were books more prescriptive - rather than descriptive - in Lowth's era? These are the questions we would like to be answered. For this reason papers on the following topics are more than welcome:

- Grammars and grammarians
-Lexicography and lexicographers
- Phonology and phoneticians
- Old and new language guardians

Abstracts (maximum 400 words) should be submitted in c/c to msturialunict.it and j.c.bealshef.ac.uk by 15th January 2006. It is expected that a selection of papers will be published.
