MPP2021 — Morphology in production and perception: Phonetics, phonology and spelling of complex words
08 Feb 2021 - 10 Feb 2021 • Düsseldorf, Germany
Organizer:
Heinrich-Heine-Universität, Düsseldorf, Department for English Language and Linguistics
Abstract:
Recent research on the production and comprehension of morphologically complex words in speech and writing has shown that morphological structure may influence their phonology, articulation, acoustics and spelling. So far, the range of investigated phenomena and languages is still small. Nevertheless, the results obtained so far pose serious challenges for current theories of phonology-morphology interaction, of the mental lexicon and of language production, perception and comprehension.

The role of linguistic interfaces — XXIII. Deutscher Hispanistentag
24 Feb 2021 - 27 Feb 2021 • Graz, Austria
Organizer:
Universität Graz
Abstract:
The assumption of an interaction between grammatical subsystems depends very much on the theoretical paradigm: While some synchronic and diachronic grammatical theories, such as Optimality Theory (OT) and grammaticalization theory, early based their fundamental assumptions on the interaction of grammatical modules, the idea of autonomous subsystems predominated in early phases of the Generative paradigm before the interest in language acquisition and change increased (see Fischer & Gabriel 2016: 8). Nowadays, the term itself is ambiguous since it is used in different ways: in a wider interpretation, the term “interface” refers to the connection between linguistics and other disciplines (e.g. philosophy, psychology) as well as to the connection between the language faculty and other aspects of cognitive domains, i.e. the external or non-linguistic interfaces.

Abstract:
The ComputEL-4 workshop will focus on the use of computational methods in the study, support, and revitalization of endangered languages. The primary aim of the workshop is to continue narrowing the gap between computational linguists interested in working on methods for endangered languages, field linguists working on documenting these languages, and the language communities who are striving to maintain their languages.

European Association for Studies of Australia (EASA) International Conference
29 Mar 2021 - 01 Apr 2021 • University of Naples, Italy
Organizer:
European Association for Studies of Australia (EASA)
Abstract:
Australia may be defined as a society increasingly preoccupied yet also gambling with the future, a worry or denial which is closely connected to the notion of risk as a systematic way of dealing with, inducing and introducing hazards and insecurities. Apocalyptic speculations about future events are often employed in regard to feared scapegoats, such as climate change, migrants and Indigenous peoples, who are blamed for threatening or damaging society. Denial and scepticism have become the resort of political and social movements, yet fear and anxiety are perhaps the dominant affective modes of expressing one’s attachment to the Australian community or nation.
Topics:
Australia as a Risk Society: Hope and Fears of the Past, the Present and the Future

ISB13 — International Symposium on Bilingualism
09 Jul 2021 - 14 Jul 2021 • Warsaw , Poland
Organizer:
University of Warsaw, Poland
Abstract:
The conference theme, “Bilingualism in Flux”, presents bilingualism as a dynamic and multifaceted phenomenon existing on a continuum. The in flux part of the theme is a twofold concept. First, it is understood as relating to non-linguistic circumstances that foster not only diverse, but also transient bilingual communities throughout the world. Nowadays, new waves of migration influence the linguistic status quo and enrich existing environments. Second, it pertains to the very processes taking place in language, a dynamic entity prone to changes. The fluctuating circumstances entail linguistic consequences reflected in the development of the second and further languages, cross-linguistic influence, language attrition, incomplete acquisition, and maintenance of heritage languages. Finally, the conference leitmotif highlights not only the local changes presently taking place in Poland, but also the country’s linguistic heritage.

Workshop at ESSLLI 2021 — Computational and Experimental Explanations in Semantics and Pragmatics
09 Aug 2021 - 13 Aug 2021 • Utrecht, Netherlands
Abstract:
The field of natural language semantics has undergone what some refer to as an ‘experimental turn’ and is arguably currently undergoing a ‘computational turn’. By expanding the toolbox available to the semanticist, these two turns have the effect of expanding the phenomena that can be explained and the varieties of semantic explanation that can be offered.

The Once and Future English
10 Mar 2022 - 12 Mar 2022 • London, United Kingdom
Organizer:
University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN, USA
Abstract:
This conference begins with the notion that English is today used by about 1.5 billion people, less than a third of whom speak it as their first language. This minority-majority reversal has significantly impacted the grammatical characteristics of English, the demographics of the Anglophone population, the domains in which English is used, and attitudes towards the language, which has been described both as a venue for increased global communication and as a cultural and economic predator. The history of the language is being rewritten as well, from one defined by conventional periodization and the triumph of English as a Germanic language, to one that has reoriented the historical and contemporary significance of the language’s traditional homelands. The Once and Future English asks the question: How will English’s present and past look to future speakers?
