The 40th Annual Conference of the International Computer Archive for Modern and Medieval English (ICAME) will be held at Université de Neuchâtel in Switzerland, June 1 – 5. ICAME is one of the most important ongoing conference series on corpus linguistics, and since this is the 40th installment it is something of an anniversary. The theme this year is “Language in Time, Time in Language”.
This year we are happy to see that we have many of our researchers connected to DISA present to represent us and the research conducted at Linnaeus University.
The conference activities connected to DISA LNU are:
- Jukka Tyrkkö will be organizing a workshop called “Big data and the study of language and culture: Parliamentary discourse across time and space” together with Minna Korhonen and Haidee Kruger.
- Mikko Laitinen is presenting a paper on variation in indefinite pronouns in historical American English called “Towards the Inevitable Demise of Everybody?” together with Emily Öhman and Tanja Säily.
- Magnus Levin and Jenny Ström Herold will present on echoic binomials in an English-German-Swedish perspective as a part of the “Languages in Time, Time in Languages: Phraseological perspectives” workshop.
- Mikko Laitinen, Jukka Tyrkkö, Magnus Levin, Alexander Lakaw and Daniel Sundberg will be presenting a paper on the use of American English and British English in the Nordic context through the Nordic Tweet Stream.
