Linguistic Field(s): Semantics

Call Deadline: 31-Jul-2022

Meeting Description:

Formal Diachronic Semantics (FoDS) is a forum dedicated to the exploration of semantic change, carried out within the paradigm of formal semantics/pragmatics. FoDS7 will be hosted by the Hungarian Research Centre for Linguistics (Budapest, Hungary) on November 10-11 2022, in a hybrid format: we hope that most participants will be able to participate in-person, but it will also be possible to participate on-line.

Invited speakers:

Nora Boneh (Hebrew University)
Regine Eckardt (Konstanz University)
Remus Gergel (Saarland University)

2nd Call for Papers:

We invite submission of abstracts for oral as well as poster presentations on topics that address semantic change from within the paradigm of formal semantics/pragmatics. These may include case studies, studies of trends, corpus results, as well as formal theories of meaning change in specific domains. We also welcome research at the interfaces with syntax and other areas, as long as the research makes a contribution to the area of formal diachronic semantics/pragmatics. We welcome papers that address methodological questions in the field. Submissions are limited to one individual and one joint abstract per author (or two joint abstracts per author).

Important dates

Abstract submission deadline (extended): 31 July 2022 (23:59 Central European Standard Time)
Notification of decision: 16 September 2022

Submission guidelines

Submissions must be anonymous and must not reveal the identities of the authors in any form. Abstracts should fit two pages (letter size or A4 paper, 2.54cm or 1 inch margins on all sides, 12 point font, Times New Roman), with an additional third page used *exclusively* for the following elements: references (obligatory), large figures or tables, and as many lines of the body of the abstract as there are lines of glosses and translations in non-English glossed examples. Examples (glossed or not) should be interspersed in the text, rather than collected at the end. The extended deadline for abstract submission is 31st July 2022 (23:59 Central European Standard Time):
