42nd International Systemic Functional Congress

    Aktivitet: Deltagelse i eller arrangement af en begivenhed - typerKonference


    The framework of Systemic Functional Linguistics has been applied in many different fields and research contexts, establishing it firmly as a prominent approach amongst functional theories. The theme “Challenging Boundaries” invites speakers to present new ideas as well as interdisciplinary work with SFL, but also to reflect on familiar applications and discuss future developments in established contexts. Questions to be raised may include addressing the boundaries between languages in cross-linguistic studies but also in variational linguistics (non-standard variety or different language?), between literary and non-literary language, between language and other semiotic systems in multimodal studies, between register and genre, register and context, between social-semiotic and cognitive perspectives, between qualitative and quantitative approaches, between example-based and probabilistic approaches and boundaries across strata. Finally, we also welcome contributions which discuss boundaries to neighbouring frameworks such as Functional Discourse Grammar, Constructionist approaches, Critical Discourse Analysis etc. exploring interconnections with SFL. Papers discussing ideas in this perspective are invited in the areas below, though the following is by no means an exhaustive list, and in keeping with tradition, papers not strictly related to the theme or outside of the SFL perspective will also be considered. - The levels: phonology, lexico-grammar, cohesion, semantics, discourse - Language education - Language learning & development - Diachronic studies - Language, power and knowledge - Appraisal - Multimodality - Register and genre - Context of situation and context of culture - Regional variation - Language typology and contrastive studies - Translation studies - Studies of verbal art - Methodology: computational approaches, links to experimental research - Socio-cultural variation - SFL and other language theories
