Revista CHIMERA – Petición de contribuciones

CHIMERA: Romance Corpora and Linguistic Studies invites submissions for its vol. 8 (2021). CHIMERA intends to promote a stronger connection among the academic communities of the Romance languages speaking countries in Europe and overseas. From 2014, the journal publishes one issue per year.

CHIMERA accepts original articles focusing on the analysis of both spoken and written corpora from any theoretical perspective and about all areas of linguistic research. The journal also publishes reviews regarding books, corpora (accounting for resource building initiatives and innovative annotation practices), and tools for the corpus analysis.

We would like to invite you to submit a manuscript for our next issue. Articles will be in their electronic version as soon as they are accepted and ready, without waiting for the assembly of a complete issue. The current issue will be open till December 2021.

Research papers should be between 5,000 and 10,000 words (including references). Short papers and reviews should be between 2,000 and 4,000 words. Submissions should be written in any Romance language or in English. All submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by at least two members of the scientific committee and will only be accepted if they are recommended for acceptance with minor revisions. Priority will be given to articles that display a strong theoretical background, solid methodology in corpus linguistics, and an innovative approach.

Lancaster Summer Schools in Corpus Linguistics

Summer schools

Lancaster Summer Schools in Corpus Linguistics – this year in an online format!

Lancaster Summer Schools in Corpus Linguistics are held annually during the summer at Lancaster University. Taking part in the summer schools offers a wonderful opportunity to learn about corpus linguistics from leading scholars in the field and meet many other participants working on exciting projects and topics. Lancaster summer schools are a truly international event, each year welcoming participants from over 30 countries in the world. While the participants come to Lancaster to learn about corpus linguistics, the summer schools are also a place for developing new academic collaborations and building new friendships.

We will unfortunately not be able to hold our annual Summer Schools in Corpus Linguistics in Lancaster in June 2021 as planned. Instead, the summer schools will take place in an online format. The programme includes both lectures and practical sessions that introduce the latest developments in the field and practical applications of cutting-edge analytical techniques. The summer schools are taught by leading experts in the field from Lancaster University. The summer schools are intended primarily for postgraduate research students but applications from Masters-level students, postdoctoral researchers, senior researchers, and others will also be considered. The summer schools are free to attend.

This year, Lancaster university is pleased to offer two free training events that cover the techniques of corpus linguistics and their application in different areas. [Please note that the summer school in Statistics and data visualisation for corpus linguistics will not be offered this year; it will run again in 2022].

If you are interested in studying corpus linguistics at Lancaster University, you can also consider different ways of joining us such as our MOOC in Corpus Linguistics, and our two distance postgraduate programmes, MA in Corpus Linguistics (a two-year programme) and Postgraduate Certificate in Corpus Linguistics (a one-year programme), both delivered fully online. You can also check the various online resources we have put together for those interested in learning more about different methods and applications of corpus linguistics.

Dates: 21-25 June 2011

Venue: Lancaster University, Lancaster, UK (delivered online, via Microsoft Teams)

Application:   Follow this link to apply for a place in one of Lancaster summer schools.

Organising committee: Dr Dana Gablasova (Chair), Dr Luke Collins, Rachael McCarthy

Corpus Linguistics Summer School 2021

Corpus Linguistics Summer School 2021
Monday 5 July (09:00) – Thursday 8 July 2021 (17:00)
clsummerschool@contacts.bham.ac.uk

Introduction
Our Corpus Linguistics summer school is open to undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral students, as well as researchers who want to improve their skills to apply corpus methods in their own research.

The fifth Corpus Linguistics Summer School will be entirely online and consist of synchronous and asynchronous elements. The synchronous part will take place from 5 to 8 July, 2021. Prior to the synchronous part, participants will be expected to complete the asynchronous part consisting of self-study video lectures and hands-on materials.

Our summer school aims to equip participants with critical expertise in both the theory and practice of corpus-based linguistic research. Building on the strengths of our Centre for Corpus Research (CCR) and our invited speakers, we strive to offer participants a learning experience that is both beneficial for their own specific research needs and enriching to them as language researchers at large. There will also be the opportunity for participants to present their own work and receive feedback from our expert team. Given the specialised nature of the programme, a basic understanding of corpus linguistics is highly recommended.

Registration
Registration is now open – you can register for the summer school .
The summer school fee is £80.

Programme
The complete programme of the summer school will be available nearer the time.

Over the course of four days, participants will be actively involved in two kinds of sessions. First, hands-on sessions will put the emphasis on the learning of practical skills for the purpose of extracting and analysing corpus data of various kinds, and the application of this knowledge to specific research projects. Second, participants will also learn about current corpus-based research from our local staff of corpus linguists.

The programme will cover the following topics (non-exhaustive list):

Corpus tools and specialized software
Data exploration
Creating a custom corpus
Phraseology
Introduction to R and tidyverse
Web scraping with R
Statistics in corpus linguistics
Sign language corpora
Corpora and legal research

PhD position at Université catholique de Louvain

Institution/Organization: Université catholique de Louvain
Department: Centre for English Corpus Linguistics
Web Address

Level: PhD
Duties: Research
Specialty Areas: Applied Linguistics; Language Acquisition; Text/Corpus Linguistics
Required Language(s): English (eng) French (fra)

Description:
Project: The PhD fellowship is part of an FNRS-funded project entitled “PROCEED with L1 and L2 writing fluency”. This project relies on data from the Process Corpus of English in Education (PROCEED) which reflect the writing process in the form of keystroke log files (recorded by means of the Inputlog software) and screencast videos. It centres around the concept of writing fluency, looking at how smooth and rapid the writing process is, whether writing is interrupted by pauses, revisions, etc. The main objective is to compare the writing fluency of French-speaking learners of English writing in their mother tongue (L1) and in the target language (L2). This will involve highlighting the similarities and differences between L1 and L2 writing fluency profiles, as well as distinguishing the aspects of L2 writing fluency that are the result of general and language-independent skills from those that are caused by the difficulty of writing in a non-native language. The project also pursues a more theoretical objective by considering fluency as a means of providing insights into the mental processes underlying the writing event. Such insights then make it possible to develop writing process models representing native and non-native novice writing, and showing how L1 and L2 writing abilities interact with each other. Finally, the project aims to help improve L2 learners’ writing fluency thanks to the pedagogical exploitation of L2 writing process data.

Position:
The PhD candidate will work in Louvain-la-Neuve under the supervision of Gaëtanelle Gilquin (CECL, UCLouvain). S/he will be affiliated with the Institute for Language and Communication and will be a member of the CECL.

Experimental and Corpus-based Approaches to Ellipsis 3 – ONLINE

Short Title: ECBAE3
Date: 15-Jul-2020 – 17-Jul-2020
Location: Online, Italy
Contact: Gabriela Bîlbîie
Contact Email: ecbae3@gmail.com
Meeting URL: http://drehu.linguist.univ-paris-diderot.fr/ecbae-2020/
Linguistic Field(s): Linguistic Theories; Psycholinguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Description:
Ellipsis is a central phenomenon at the interface between syntax, semantics, phonology and discourse. It has been, and continues to be, the focus of numerous publications (van Craenenbroeck & Temmerman 2018). Despite a huge amount of theoretical work (from, e.g., Hankamer & Sag 1976 to current work by van Craenenbroek 2010, Ginzburg 2012) and a long tradition in psycholinguistic experimentation (from Murphy 1985 and Tannnenhaus & Carlson 1990 to current work by Kim & Runner 2017, Poppels & Kehler 2019), major questions remain open, most centrally the question of whether it is necessary to hypothesize the existence of unpronounced syntactic structure at the ellipsis site.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers who have been working on elliptical phenomena with special emphasis on methodologies aiming to improve the empirical foundations of the discussion, specifically psycholinguistic experimentation (acceptability and eye-tracking experiments, in particular) and corpus investigations.

Contributions will be welcome concerning (i) the specific experimental methodologies being used in psycholinguistics, and how they can be improved to give more reliable and interpretable results; (ii) the way corpus data can be brought to bear on theoretical questions; and (iii) how corpus data can be used to improve the results of psycholinguistic experiments, specifically by increasing the naturalness of the materials by providing new hypotheses.

This two-day conference will lead to publication and continues the theme initiated by preceding ECBAE conferences during the 2017 and 2019 LSA Linguistic Institutes.

PostDoc in Language Documentation, Typology, Corpus Linguistics, and Archiving – Berlín

Organization: Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS)
Web Address: http://leibniz-zas.de/
Job Rank: Post Doc
Specialty Areas: Language Documentation; Text/Corpus Linguistics; Typology; Language Archiving

Description:

The Leibniz-Zentrum Allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS) invites applications for one PostDocs position. The deadline for applications is July 1, 2020.

The position is part of the collaborative project “QUEST: Quality – Established. Testing and applying curation criteria and quality standards for audiovisual, annotated linguistic data”. (see https://cutt.ly/quest). The QUEST project develops – in consultation with the research community – quality standards and curation criteria for annotated, audiovisual linguistic data and develops and tests quality control procedures for the creation and curation of such resources. QUEST focuses on digital research data collected through language documentation and through research on multilingualism, but aims to develop more widely applicable standards. QUEST will improve existing data sets and future data collection procedures in terms of reproducibility of research results and long-term accessibility and reusability, also for wider scientific and non-scientific uses.

QUEST is carried out by a consortium of four German research institutions, in collaboration with international partners. The applicant will contribute to the subproject “AP 2.1 Kurationskriterien für sprachtypologische Sekundärnutzung” carried out at the Leibniz-ZAS Berlin. Responsibilities include the development of criteria for the curation of language documentation data for cross-linguistic research, in particular annotated texts stemming from fieldwork on small, often endangered languages, typically in ELAN format. The aim of this subproject is to develop and establish a label for annotated spoken corpora that certifies their usability for cross-linguistic corpus research, allowing for the application of quantitative methods. Another aim of the project at the Leibniz-ZAS Berlin in Berlin is to develop and carry out exemplary cross-linguistic studies using QUEST data in collaboration with project partners. The successful candidate will take over from the current state of the project, in which documentations of individual corpora are being prepared.

Within ZAS, the applicant will collaborate with the DoReCo project (http://doreco.info/). Within the QUEST consortium, the applicant will collaborate with the QUEST project partner projects in Hamburg, Cologne, and Mannheim (see https://cutt.ly/quest).

We are looking for a person with experience in language documentation, corpus building, language archiving, and in language typology and linguistic theory. A working knowledge of German is a plus.

The PostDoc position commences on October 1, 2020, with a fixed term until April 30, 2022.

Please apply via Email until July, 1, 2020, with one single pdf file, subject “QUEST application”, to both Frank Seifart (seifartleibniz-zas.de) and Manfred Krifka (krifkaleibniz-zas.de).

Your application should contain:
– A cover letter that states in particular the nature of your interest in the project and your expertise that you would contribute
– Your CV with a list of your publications,
– The names and e-mail addresses of two persons that would provide a reference if so asked.ZAS is an equal opportunity employer.

Application Deadline: 01-Jul-2020
