We would like to bring together theoretical linguists who use texts and corpora for pragmatic or discourse-related research questions, and corpus linguists as well as computational linguists who create and annotate relevant corpus resources, or exploit them. The goal of the workshop is to enhance exchange between researchers of both fields, and thus to gain insight in the -- possibly common -- properties and peculiarities of the "beyond" phenomena.
The workshop "Beyond semantics: Corpus-based investigations of pragmatic and discourse phenomena" will be held in Göttingen, Germany, February 23-25, 2011, as part of the Annual Conference of the German Linguistic Society (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sprachwissenschaft, DGfS). The workshop is organized by Stefanie Dipper (Bochum) and Heike Zinsmeister (Konstanz).
Note that according to DGfS policy, each person may only present one paper at the DGfS conference (but can be co-author of further papers).
