3rd Globalex Workshop on Lexicography and Neology, 2021 

Focus on Corona-related Neologisms


Full-day workshop held in conjunction with AustraLex 2021

The third iteration of Globalex Workshop on Lexicography and Neology (GWLN) will be held online in conjunction with the AUSTRALEX 2021 conference, on August 31.


The focus of GWLN-3 is on neologisms arising in relation to the Corona pandemic. The 12 papers in the workshop cover issues related to the detection of such neologisms and their lexicographic processing and representation, offering cross-world views on COVID-19-driven neologisms for eight languages.


GWLN 2021 is supported by Globalex – the Global Alliance for Lexicography and follows the two GWLN events organized in conjunction with the DSNA (2019) and EURALEX (2020) conferences.


The organizers are Annette Klosa-Kückelhaus (IDS, Leibniz-Institute of the German Language) and Ilan Kernerman (K Dictionaries).

Corpus Approaches to Lexicogrammar 2021
Short Title: LxGr2021
Date: 03-Jul-2021 - 03-Jul-2021

Location: Online, United Kingdom
Contact: Costas Gabrielatos
Meeting URL:

Linguistic Field(s): Computational Linguistics; Linguistic Theories; Semantics; Syntax; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Meeting Description:

The focus of LxGr is the interaction of lexis and grammar. The focus is informed by Halliday’s view of lexis and grammar as “complementary perspectives” (1991: 32), and his conception of the two as notional ends of a continuum (lexicogrammar), in that “if you interrogate the system grammatically you will get grammar-like answers and if you interrogate it lexically you get lexis-like answers” (1992: 64).

Participation is free. You can register here:

Fourteenth International Conference of “Functional Pragmatics”
23-Sep-2021 - 25-Sep-2021

Chemnitz (Online), Germany

Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics

The Chair of German as a Foreign / Second Language (TU Chemnitz, Germany) is proud to announce the Fourteenth International Conference of “Functional Pragmatics”. The theory of “Functional Pragmatics” understands language as a societally elaborated complex form-function-nexus as a basis for the reconstruction of the functionality of linguistic devices as well as the deep structures of linguistic interaction. Such reconstruction requires to differentiate, at an analytical level, between three instances of reality, namely linguistic reality (p), the mental realities of speaker and hearer (
ΠS and ΠH), and extralinguistic reality (P).
The conference focuses the role of this triad on the basis of authentic empirical evidence from, among other things, plurilingual interaction, knowledge transfer in institutions as well as translating and interpreting.

Program Information:


The Fourteenth International Conference of the “Functional Pragmatics” will take place on 23 September 2021 - 25 September 2021, and will be held ONLINE. Registration is free. Conference language is German, contributions in English are also acceptable.

Formes d'injonction dans l'espace public urbain
Date: 17-Jun-2021 - 18-Jun-2021

Location: A distance et en présentiel à la Maison de la Recherche et Paris 3 (Censier), France
Contact: Claire Aubanelle

Meeting Description:

Colloque organisé en mode hybride à la Sorbonne Nouvelle dans le cadre des travaux du Réseau international de recherche ''Le genre bref dans l'espace public''.
Co-organisé par les EA 7345 CLESTHIA et EA 4223 CEREG,

Les panneaux, affiches, affichettes, publicités et autres manifestations de l’écrit de petit format qui jalonnent l’espace public, délivrent des messages de différentes natures. Adressés aux passants, aux automobilistes et cyclistes, aux jeunes aussi bien qu’aux vieux, aux gens pressés et aux oisifs, ils les informent, les orientent, les avertissent de dangers, les invitent à se comporter ou à s’abstenir d’agir de telle ou telle manière. 
Un grand nombre de ces messages est orienté tantôt vers un agir immédiat comme dans le cas du code de la route, tantôt vers un agir différé comme dans le cas de la publicité. On peut subsumer la finalité de ces messages sous l’idée de l’injonction au sens large voire onomasiologique, qui comprend aussi bien l’incitation, la suggestion, l’ordre, l’interdiction, ou encore l’avertissement.

La manifestation prend place dans une série de colloques et séminaires du Réseau international de recherche ‘Le Genre Bref dans l’Espace public’, ayant pour objet les manifestations de genre bref dans l’espace public et dont sont sorties trois publications centrées sur des approches grammaticales, énonciatives et génériques.

En thématisant les formes d’injonction, le colloque constitue alors une ouverture vers des approches pragmatiques.
