Language in Style. Linguistic variation in Greek and Latin from Lexis to Register - 18-19-20/05/2016



While stylistics has a very long tradition in the classical studies, ‘styles’ have not often been defined in terms of communicative functions and priorities, even though these relate naturally to linguistic variation. The present conference intends to stimulate research and debate in this perspective by looking into both the ancient texts and the rhetorical tradition. The conference is convened by Alessandro Vatri (Oxford) and Tzu-I Liao (UCL), and its aim is to rethink the traditional notion of ‘style’ in Greek and Latin in theoretical and practical terms from the perspective of language use and communication—an approach that profits especially from the tools and methods of contemporary linguistics (e.g. sociolinguistics, corpus linguistics, discourse analysis).
