LxGr is an annual symposium taking place online in early July

Organiser: Costas Gabrielatos (Edge Hill University)

The focus of LxGr is the interaction of lexis and grammar. It is influenced by Halliday’s view of lexis and grammar as “complementary perspectives” (1991: 32), and his conception of the two as notional ends of a continuum (lexicogrammar), in that “if you interrogate the system grammatically you will get grammar-like answers and if you interrogate it lexically you get lexis-like answers” (1992: 64).

LxGr primarily welcomes papers reporting on corpus-based research on any aspect of the interaction of lexis and grammar — particularly studies that interrogate the system lexicogrammatically to get lexicogrammatical answers. However, position papers discussing theoretical or methodological issues are also welcome, as long as they are relevant to both lexicogrammar and corpus linguistics.
