This ExLing 2008 is a follow up Workshop on Experimental Linguistics, held in Athens, Greece, 28-30 August 2006, under the auspices of the International Speech Communication (ISCA) and the University of Athens. The Workshop aims to bring together professionals working with language in different settings and to promote discussion and exchange of ideas on approaches to the study of language. Main areas of concern will be:
- The use of experimental methodologies for the production of linguistic knowledge.
- The effects of different factors, such as lexical, prosodic and syntactic ones, as well as interactions between factors with reference to linguistic structures and the organisation of language.
- The relation between sound and meaning as a function of linguistic categories and structures. The Workshop will focus on experimental and interdisciplinary approaches with the ultimate objective of boosting international research and collaboration.
The following subjects and disciplines are related to the Workshop:
- Cognitive Linguistics
- Speech Production
- Speech Acoustics
- Speech perception
- Discourse Linguistics
- Language Pathology
- Language Education
- Computational Linguistics
- Language Technology
Submission of abstracts covering fundamental linguistic notions, such as segments, syllables, words, phrases and discourse units, are invited with reference to the aims of the Workshop.
The Workshop will contain a combination of plenary oral and poster sessions along with interdisciplinary panel discussions.
