Visite de M. Carlos Subirats à l’OLST

L’OLST est heureux d’accueillir à nouveau M. Carlos Subirats, professeur à l’Universitat Autònoma
de Barcelona
et chercheur senior invité à l’Université Simon-Fraser (Vancouver, Canada).

En tant que spécialiste du cadre de description Frame Semantics, et plus particulièrement
du développement de la version espagnole de FrameNet, M. Subirats fera deux présentations
durant son séjour chez nous :

—————— Le mercredi 5 juin 2013 à 11h30 ——————–

Dans le cadre des Séminaire RALI-OLST :
« Frame semantics, discourse, and metaphors »

Le mercredi 5 juin 2013 à 11 h 30
Salle C-9019, Pavillon Lionel-Groulx

In this talk, I will demonstrate how Frame Semantics can be applied to studying the
rhetorical structure of discourse (Subirats, Ellsworth, and Taboada, in preparation).
In particular, I will show how a “rhetorical relation” between sentences, such as
reason or evidence, can be described as a coreference relation between the sentence
that instantiates the rhetorical relation and an indefinite null instantiation (INI)
of a non-core frame element evoked by a lexical unit (LU) in the earlier sentence.
In other words, a rhetorical relationship can be specified by identifying the anaphoric
relationship between a sentence and an INI evoked by an LU in another sentence.
This talk will also cover the relationship between semantic frames and metaphor.
Analyzing a conceptual metaphor as a mapping between two frames, instead of a mapping
between two “domains”, allows us to explain more precisely how the new metaphorical
meaning emerges. I will show how defining implicational relationships between the
frames in a given source domain allows us to predict whether those frames can participate
in particular metaphorical mapping relations (Subirats and Ellsworth, in preparation;
Subirats, in press).
