Corpus Approaches to Lexicogrammar (LxGr) – CALL FOR PAPERS

The focus of LxGr is the interaction of lexis and grammar. The focus is influenced by Halliday’s view of lexis and grammar as “complementary perspectives” (1991: 32), and his conception of the two as notional ends of a continuum (lexicogrammar), in that “if you interrogate the system grammatically you will get grammar-like answers and if you interrogate it lexically you get lexis-like answers” (1992: 64). LxGr primarily welcomes papers reporting on corpus-based research on any aspect of the interaction of lexis and grammar. However, position papersdiscussing theoretical or methodological issues are also welcome, as long as they are relevant to both lexicogrammar and corpus linguistics. LxGr is particularly interested in studies that interrogate the system lexicogrammatically to get lexicogrammatical answers.
