Meeting Description:

The aim of the International Contrastive Linguistics Conference 2010 is to
encourage the fine-grained comparative analyses between two (or more) languages
from different theoretical perspectives and with different goals. Although
contrastive linguistics has long been associated primarily with applied
linguistics (in particular foreign language teaching), it is here seen as a
subdiscipline of comparative linguistics with major theoretical implications,
which may contribute to our understanding of cross-linguistic and
language-internal variation.

Last Call for Papers

Due to multiple requests, the deadline for submission of abstracts has been
extended to May 3, 2010

The thematic focus of the 2010 edition of the International Contrastive
Linguistics Conference will be on the relationship between contrastive
linguistics and other approaches to language comparison. What are the specific
benefits of the contrastive approach? How can methodologies and theoretical
insights of other approaches to language comparison contribute to the further
development of contrastive linguistics?

We welcome contributions dealing with all research areas of contrastive
linguistics. We especially encourage contributions to the thematic sessions.

Thematic sessions:
- Contrastive linguistics and typology
- Contrastive linguistics and historical comparative linguistics
- Contrastive linguistics and intercultural communication
- Contrastive linguistics and micro variation
- Contrastive intonation
- Clausal arguments in comparative perspective
- Parallel Corpora Across Fields: Bridging the Gaps
- Contrastive Linguistics, Corpus Analysis and Annotation
- Discourse analysis and contrastive linguistics: From research to applications

Abstract Guidelines:
Participants can only present one paper. However, a maximum of two papers may be
presented provided both are co-authored.

To facilitate communication among participants, papers should preferably be
presented in English. Presentations in German, Spanish and French, however, are
also acceptable.

Papers and posters will be selected through an anonymous peer-review procedure
by the scientific committee. Please indicate your preference for oral or poster
presentation. Abstracts should not exceed 500 words, including references. They
should be submitted electronically at the conference website from March 1 to May
3, 2010. Notification of acceptance: June 1, 2010.
