Call Deadline: 31-May-2022

Meeting Description:

The DisCorX 2022 workshop focuses on discourse through the lens of cognitive corpus linguistics and psycholinguistics. It is a follow-up from DisCorX 2020 organized by Dr. Ludivine Crible. The goal is to provide researchers working on discourse an opportunity to exchange state-of-the-art research regarding the production, comprehension and processing of discourse, both for L1 and L2 speakers. Focus will be placed on questions linked to:
- the way native and non-native readers make sense of discourse by using (or not) cues and signals of coherence relations
- individual differences in the interpretation of discourse relations
- the way native and non-native readers interpret and acquire pragmatic functions of discourse connectives

As such, our workshop targets underlying cognitive principles and general assumptions about the way we read and process coherence relations as well as more specific factors that influence the way we produce, process and understand discourse.

2nd Call for Papers:

Dear colleagues,

This is a reminder that the deadline for our workshop DisCorX 2.0 held on 17th – 18th November 2022 is approaching. We welcome your contributions until 31st May.

Meeting Description
The workshop builds on the DisCorX – workshop organized by Dr. Ludivine Crible in 2020 about discourse in the lens of cognitive corpus linguistics and psycholinguistics. Its’ goal is to provide an opportunity to exchange state-of-the-art research regarding the production, comprehension and processing of discourse, both for L1 and L2 speakers. Focus will be laid on questions linked to:
- the way native and non-native readers make sense of discourse by using (or not) cues and signals of coherence relations
- individual differences in the interpretation of discourse relations
- the way they interpret and acquire pragmatic functions of discourse connectives

As such, our workshop targets underlying cognitive principles and general assumptions about the way we read and process coherence relations as well as more specific factors and circumstances that influence the way we produce, process and understand discourse.

We encourage submissions on the following topics:
- categories of coherence relations
- categories of discourse signals
- second language acquisition of connectives
- processing of coherence relations in a L2
- polyfunctionality, ambiguity, information density
- “implicit” vs “explicit” relations

Modalities for submissions
Abstract for a 20-minute presentation (+ 10 minutes discussion) not longer than 500 words (excluding references) in the formats .doc or docx.

Please submit your abstract via Easy-Chair:
