Meeting Description:

The University of Rouen will be organizing an International Conference on Grammaticalization Theory and Data on May 10-11, 2012.

Since the 1980s grammaticalization theory has emerged as a key theory to understand and explain language change. The examination of constant new empirical data has contributed to enrich and refine the theoretical framework. The purpose of this conference is to continue to explore the various facets of grammaticalization by proposing state-of-the-art papers not only in traditional areas of grammaticalization but also on innovative phenomena. New research on the following topics is specially welcome: grammaticalization and constructions; grammaticalization and gradualness and/or gradience; grammaticalization and (inter)subjectification; grammaticalization and prosody; grammaticalization and right-boundary adverbials.

L’Université de Rouen organise un colloque international sur la théorie de la grammaticalisation et les données du 10 au 11 mai 2012. Pléniers : Bernd Heine (Université de Cologne) and Elizabeth Traugott (Université de Stanford).

Depuis les années 1980, la théorie de la grammaticalisation s’est révélée comme une théorie clé pour comprendre et expliquer le changement linguistique. L’examen constant de données nouvelles empiriques a contribué à enrichir et raffiner le cadre théorique. Le but de ce colloque est de continuer à explorer les diverses facettes de la grammaticalisation en proposant des communications à la pointe de la recherche non seulement dans des domaines traditionnels de la grammaticalisation mais aussi sur des phénomènes émergents. On accueillera en particulier avec bienveillance les thèmes suivants : grammaticalisation et constructions ; grammaticalisation et gradience ; grammaticalisation et (inter)subjectivisation ; grammaticalisation et prosodie ; grammaticalisation et adverbs à droite.

Plenary Speakers: Bernd Heine (University of Köln) and Elizabeth Traugott (Stanford University).
