Call Deadline: 31-Jan-2012

Meeting Description:

Interlinguistic contact between codes never occurs 'in the void', but in the relations between members of different speech communities, either directly through the spoken medium, or indirectly through the written one. In both cases, speakers/writers carry linguistic norms and realize them in language usage. In 18th/19th-century Britain, these norms were codified through dictionaries, grammars and language manuals; language usage - dialectically related to such norms - may find its expression in diverse forms of text and discourse.

Call for Papers:

This seminar invites papers that examine the way pronouncing or lexical dictionaries, on the one hand, and grammar books and manuals on the other, have prescribed, over the centuries, norms for a 'proper' pronunciation and a 'correct' use of English. Please note that authors of seminar papers will be expected to give an oral presentation of not more than 15 minutes' duration, rather than simply reading their papers aloud. Reduced versions of the papers will be circulated among all speakers in advance of the seminar.

Please send abstracts of no more than 200 words to Joan Beal (j.c.bealshef.ac.uk); Massimo Sturiale (msturialunict.it) and Giovanni Iamartino (giovanni.iamartinounimi.it).
