FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS: Quantitative Investigations in Theoretical Linguistics 2 (QITL-2) 1-2 June 2006 Osnabrueck, Germany http://www.cogsci.uos.de/%7Eqitl/ -- Call deadline: Friday, 24 February 2006 -- Invited speakers: Tom Wasow, Stanford Suzanne Stevenson, Toronto Burghard Rieger, Trier Traditionally, theoretical linguistic investigation and quantitative methodologies have been antithetical. But this has been changing rapidly in recent years, with an increasing recognition of the role that quantitative methods can play in the investigation of the structure of the human language faculty. As at the first QITL meeting (Osnabrueck 2002), we would like to bring together researchers from theoretical, computational, quantitative and psycholinguistics who are interested in applying quantitative methods to theoretical issues in language to share their work. We invite researchers engaged in quantitative investigations of theoretical linguistic questions to submit abstracts for 30-minute talks (plus 10 minutes of discussion). The focus should be on a question of linguistic interest, which may be approached either from a more theoretical or a more quantitative perspective. Applications in computational linguistics may also be of interest if they lead to or shed light on theoretical questions. Relevant topics include (but are by no means limited to): models of lexical semantic preferences, rule productivity, grammar acquisition, and the issues surrounding the use of the Web as a representative corpus. Abstracts should be 2-3 pages long, including figures, tables and references (this corresponds to approx. 1000-1500 words). Electronic submission by e-mail to qitl_(on)_uos.de is strongly preferred (PDF, PostScript, RTF).
