The PLIN Day is a biennial scientific event organized by the Linguistic Research Unit (PLIN) of the Language and Communication Institute (IL&C) at UCLouvain (Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium). On Thursday 27 April 2023, the next edition will be organized around the theme "Constructions across languages: Empirical and interdisciplinary approaches".
The aim of the PLIN Day 2023 is to give an overview of recent research in Contrastive Construction Grammar, with a focus on empirical methods (e.g., corpus linguistics, psycholinguistic experiments) and interdisciplinary approaches (in the field of translation and language learning studies).
The following experts will deliver a keynote lecture in a specific subfield of the general theme (the exact titles of the lectures will be announced later):
Constructions in Corpus-based Contrastive Studies: Prof. Volker Gast (Friedrich-Schiller Universität Jena)
Constructions in Translation Studies: Prof. Stella Neumann (RWTH Aachen University)
Constructions in Multilingualism and Language Contact: Prof. Julia Prentice (University of Gothenburg)
Constructions in Second Language Acquisition: Prof. Stefanie Wulff (University of Florida)
In addition to these keynote lectures, a poster session will be organized to enable participants to present their most recent research or work in progress and to interact with the invited experts.
