Call Deadline: 15-Mar-2011
Pursuing the objectives of GRATO 2009, GRATO 2011 aims at contributing to a broad and coherent approach of grammatical phenomena and their functioning in texts and discourses.
The ‘Grammar and Text’ group of CLUNL develops a linguistic research that relates different perspectives and theoretical frameworks – synchronic and diachronic, on morphology, semantics, text theory – and the Conference will hopefully provide the discussion of new and enlightening proposals. The interaction of grammatical, textual and discursive phenomena will be given priority as well as the complementation of different theoretical approaches and methodologies, aiming at the construction of accurate descriptions and adequate explanatory hypotheses.
Call for Papers:
Topics relevant to the conference include (but are not limited to):
Grammar - Marking of tense, aspect and modality; forms and constructions; grammaticalization; polysemy; compositionality; lexicalisation.
Text, Discourse and Pragmatics - text genre; text construction; argumentation; compositionality; interdiscursivity; discourse devices; construction of meaning in context.
Grammar and Text - Studies relating (specific) grammatical phenomena and their functioning in (specific) textual and / or discursive contexts.
Abstracts (in Portuguese, English, Spanish or French) are invited for 20-minute presentations (plus 10 minutes for discussion). They must be anonymous, no longer than two pages in length using 2.5 cm margins on all sides and in 12pt font size (Times New Roman) and sent as PDF or Word files attached to an email, to be sent to gratofcsh.unl.pt, with the following information:
