This event will be held at the 7th ESSE (European Society for the Study of English) Conference in Lausanne, Switzerland.
A contrastive approach to English phraseology is essential in order to identify and describe the specificities of its lexicogrammar, imagery and figurative and formulaic language. This seminar invites participants interested in exploring contrastive phraseology and phraseotranslation. We welcome papers focusing on English collocations, idioms and other fixed phrases, conversational formulae and proverbs as well as phraseological patterns with open slots and other phraseological constructions in contrast or in comparison with other languages. Methodological stances and theoretical frameworks can include corpus linguistics, translational studies, construction grammar, cognitive linguistics, conceptual metaphor theory, linguo-cultural analysis and lexicography, among others.
Scholars wishing to present their paper in our seminar are invited to submit c. 250-word abstracts of their proposed presentations and a brief bio directly to the three convenors by 31 January 2024.
