CALL FOR PAPERS -- StylisticsMMX

European Summer School in Logic, Language and Information 2010
(ESSLLI 2010 Workshop):

Computational Stylistics:
Beyond concordances and grammar checkers

Methods of automatic text classification have been applied widely and
extensively, ranging in category granularity and with respect to both
solely internal properties of texts and text-external
variables. Coarse-grained categories include binary distinctions such
as spam vs. non-spam and three-way sentiment analysis of positive,
negative or neutral, and at the other extreme, fine grained categories
might derive from authorship attribution tasks or translation
re-ranking in machine translation.  Recent studies have sought to
relate internal linguistic features of texts with external variables,
such as author gender or scores on personality indices.  Approaches
driven by statistics amassed over corpora are compatible with (and
informed by) precision analyses over selected texts, as practiced
widely in the digital humanities and some approaches to discourse
representation theory.  Neither the "macro" level analysis supplied by
corpus linguistics nor the "micro" level analysis of individual texts
is in any way new.  However, the potential for their interaction, and
for assessing supra-lexical linguistic features of texts within
stylistic analysis is growing.  The aim of this workshop is to
highlight current work that advances and applies computational
stylistics.

Papers sought for presentation will address any of the topics related
to the theme of the workshop, including: 
   - relations between demographic and linguistic variables 
   - reliability and validity of complexity and other indices
   - plot structure analysis
   - sentiment, theme and semantic relation analysis
   - dramatis personae analysis
   - tracking stylistic change
   - cross-cultural variations in effects

Each of ten to fifteen presentations will have a tutorial element
situating the problem and hypotheses explored, as well as spelling out
the methods of analysis, followed by the main substance of the
research findings.  Thus, the workshop proposes pedagogical value
appropriate to ESSLLI, at the same time as recording recent research
advances.

IMPORTANT NOTE about the European Summer School in Logic Language
and Information:

Authors of accepted papers to ESSLLI workshops must register as
participants in the whole of ESSLLI, even if they intend to
participate in only the week of ESSLLI in which the workshop is

have been allowed to register with fees set at the student
early-registration rate.
