CBDA-7 (January 2023)

The Colloque Bisannuel de la Diachronie de l’Anglais (CBDA) is a regular conference that takes place every other year (usually in summer) in France, devoted to the diachrony of English at all stages of its development and to theoretical questions in the field of historical linguistics. After a hiatus caused by the Covid pandemic, we plan to organise the next edition, the seventh in the series, in January 2023.

Given the still uncertain sanitary context, CBDA-7 will take the form of an online symposium, spread over three non-consecutive days in January 2023 (Friday 13, 20 and 27).

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Colloque Bisannuel de la Diachronie de l’Anglais (CBDA) is a regular conference that takes place every other year (usually in summer) in France, devoted to the diachrony of English at all stages of its development and to theoretical questions in the field of historical linguistics. After a hiatus caused by the Covid pandemic, we plan to organise the next edition, the seventh in the series, in January 2023.

Given the still uncertain sanitary context, CBDA-7 will take the form of an online symposium, spread over three non-consecutive days in January 2023 (Friday 13, 20 and 27).

We invite contributors to submit session papers on all topics concerned with change and variation in the history of English (syntax, semantics, phonology, morphology, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, language contact, lexicology, etc.), on all periods in the history of English, and even on other languages directly relevant to the study of the evolution of English. Each contribution will be allotted 30 minutes, including 10 minutes for discussion. If you would like to present a paper, please submit an abstract (approximately 300 - 400 words) in pdf format using the EasyAbs system at http://linguistlist.org/easyabs/CBDA7

Abstracts should reach us no later than June 15th, 2022. All submissions will be reviewed anonymously by two referees. Notification of acceptance will be sent as of July 7th, 2022.
