The 16th section was dedicated to the revolution of computer and digital progress in the terminology work and to the concept of “digital linguistics”, which refers to the way of doing linguistics with the use of new technologies, the Internet, social networks and other digital resources that help us to carry out research in this field, as well as to the revaluation of the historical perspectives of terminological research and the digitization of work (textual and metalinguistic corpora, databases, repositories of linguistic documentation, electronic files, terminographic files, lexicographic templates, electronic and specialized dictionaries, etc.), which speed up and automate the work of linguists and expert researchers). The Book of Abstracts is available here.

MAY 2023

The BP23 Translation Conference aims to bring together scholars from different disciplines to present their work on translation and interpreting studies.

  • 10-12 May: XIV Congreso Internacional de LingĂĽĂ­stica de Corpus (CILC2023)/14th International Conference on Corpus Linguistics.The theme of the conference is Corpus Linguistics in the Digital Era: Genres, Registers and Domains. Most studies based on or derived from corpora, implicitly or explicitly, deal with the notion of genre, and other concepts such as those of register and domain. In Corpus Linguistics, the importance of these concepts has been repeatedly highlighted in studies by Douglas Biber and other linguists working in the field of Corpus Linguistics. This is the reason why the theme selected for the conference is Corpus Linguistics in the digital era, with especial reference to the analysis of genres, registers and domains. The conference will also cater for other themes such as the analysis of genres, registers and domains in Applied Linguistics and statistical analyses. Early bird registration (15.02-15.03), late registration (16.03-16.04) via the form provided on this link. Oviedo, Spain.
