The journal “Studi Slavistici” is pleased to invite proposals for a special issue to be published in vol. XIX/2, 2022, dedicated to an update of the state of the art of linguistic research on Slavic languages based on quantitative methods. The last decades have seenan increasing interest in quantitative approaches in Slavic linguistics. Thanks to the implementation of national corpora of many Slavic languages and/or other resources and tools containing corpora of Slavic languages, linguistic research in this field has radically changed.

Conferences and publications (see volume 39/3 of Russian Linguistics, and the extensivereference literature on the national corpora sites,,, and others) testify to the relevance ofquantitative methods in a variety of approaches and fields. 

We invite authors to consider the following topics: 

  • Corpus linguistics and morphological analysis
  • Semantics and pragmatics in a quantitative approach
  • Not only synchrony: the advantages of quantitative methods in diachronic linguistics
  • Translation studies and corpora: parallel corpora in translation studies
  • Linguistic variation in diachrony and synchrony
  • Usage-based approach and extraction of syntactic patterns
  • Corpora and L2 acquisition
