GRATO – International Conference on Grammar & Text – is a biannual conference that aims to
deepen the relationship between grammar and text / discourse, as a space for convergence and
reciprocal subsidiarity. It brings together contributions from linguists whose research work is
situated in different theoretical-methodological frameworks, privileging the treatment of topics
of morphology, semantics, text theory and discourse analysis, from synchronic and diachronic
perspectives.
GRATO 2021 will be held online, on the 18th, 19th and 20th of November 2021, and will privilege
the following thematic axes:
1. Relationships and interactions between Grammar and Text;
2. Forms and constructions – descriptions and perspectives;
3. Between fact and opinion – grammatical, discursive and textual configurations;
4. Didactics and literacy in Grammar and Text.

Invited Speakers
Joaquim Dolz (Université de Genève)
Johannes Angermuller (Open University)
Sarah de Vogüé (Université Paris Nanterre)
