4th Using Corpora in Contrastive and Translation Studies Conference

Lancaster University, UK – 24th to 26th July 2014


Conference Publication

All accepted abstracts will be published in the UCCTS4 conference abstract book.

Two companion volumes are planned, both to be published in 2015 or early 2016. The first will consist of selected papers from the conference and will thus function as a proceedings volume. Please note that if your paper has been accepted for the conference, and you wish it to be considered for this volume, we will require a full-paper submission within 6 weeks after the conference.

The second volume will contain papers submitted in parallel to the conference - some, but not all of the contributions will also appear on the conference programme. The details of this second volume, to be titled Corpus Pragmatics in Translation Studies, follow below.

Corpus Pragmatics in Translation Studies

A new volume will be published following UCCTS4 in the Yearbook of Corpus Linguistics and Pragmatics series (Springer) edited by Jesús Romero-Trillo.

The editors of the volume - Jesús Romero-Trillo (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid) and Richard Xiao (Lancaster Univeristy) - will select a range of contributions on the applications of pragmatics to translation studies that implement advanced methodologies based on corpus linguistics. The interest of the volume is to present the recent developments of pragmatic theories in their broadest sense (cognitive, social, linguistic, intercultural, etc.) vis-à-vis the growing possibilities of corpus linguistics in translation studies.

The topics of interest for the volume include all aspects of translation and interpreting studies. The deadline for submission of abstracts for the volume is now past. Accepted papers are expected to be 7,000-9,000 words in length, excluding citations and appendices. Final deadline is August 31, 2014.

  • While further abstracts for this volume are no longer being accepted, the Yearbook series is happy to consider contributions for publication in the regularly-produced volumes, which aim to have a section devoted to translation and pragmatics from 2015 onwards.
