Call for abstracts

We encourage researchers to share their work (in progress) and methodological approach and welcome abstracts that reflect upon the fusion of modern empirical methods with well-founded theory. Among the topics that will be discussed are the following:

  • links between theory and methodology; theory-informed empirical practice; empirical data informing theory
  • mixed methods; combining and integrating qualitative and quantitative methods
  • interdisciplinary methods
  • “big data” in linguistics
  • methodological challenges; pros and potentials vs. cons and caveats
