Section 4: Pattern dynamics

Patterns are inherently dynamic, i.e., they are prone to change or evolve diachronically or through contact with other languages or discourses (Section 4: Pattern dynamics). We invite contributions focusing on patterns and language change, historical text patterns, analogy, historical formulaic language, the dynamic of patterns in communication, pattern formalism, patterns in contact between different languages or language varieties as well as patterns in translation studies. Contributors are invited to answer the following questions: How do patterns in language and communication emerge and evolve across time, in different languages, language varieties, and discourses? How can pattern formalism also describe the change of patterns over time?
