The 3rd edition of LingCor: Workshop on Spoken Corpus Linguistics will be organised at the Institut für Romanistik of the University of Vienna from 25 to 26 July, 2024. It follows the first two editions of LingCor, which were celebrated at the Universitat de València (2018) and the Universitat d’Alacant (2019), within the project of elaboration of the corpus “Parlars. Corpus Oral del Valencià Col·loquial”.

The International Workshop on Spoken Corpus Linguistics aims to be a forum for discussion among linguists working with spoken corpus data with a focus on, but not limited to, Romance languages and varieties, either from the perspective of corpus studies (morphosyntax, semantics, pragmatics, phonetics & phonology, variationist and quantitative analyses) or from the perspective of spoken corpus construction (data collection, selection of informants, dialectal and sociolectal divisions, labelling and annotation of the corpus). The workshop is open to all theoretical approaches and welcomes contributions dealing with spoken corpus data from various angles. Talks or posters can address the following topics, among others:

  • Studies on dialectal and functional variation observed in spoken corpora.
  • Studies on linguistic change and spoken corpora.
  • Theoretical linguistics and empirical research with spoken data.
  • Oral constructions and the grammar of spoken language.
  • Pragmatics and spoken corpora.
  • Design and annotation schema of spoken corpora.
  • Processing of spoken data.
  • Tools and new technologies for spoken corpora.
  • Spoken corpora of Romance languages.
  • Spoken corpora of language contact with Romance languages.
  • Spoken corpora of Catalan and other minoritized languages.

We are pleased that the following invited speakers have confirmed their participation:

  • Marta Albelda (Universitat de València)
  • Pekka Posio (University of Helsinki)
  • Malte Rosemeyer (FU Berlin)
