5th Lodz Symposium
New Developments in Linguistic Pragmatics

University of Lodz, Poland 
Institute of English
Chair of Pragmatics
Lodz, 7-9 May 2010

Next year we will have a pleasure to organize the 5th Lodz Symposium on
linguistic pragmatics. The first, second, third and fourth conference were held
at Lodz University in 2002, 2004, 2006 and 2008 respectively, bringing together
some five hundred scholars from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. We had an
opportunity to discuss a variety of current topics in pragmatics, discourse
analysis and other relevant areas, as well as to listen to plenary lectures
given by Jef Verschueren, Katarzyna M. Jaszczolt, Roman Kalisz, Rachel Giora,
Mira Ariel, Richard W. Janney, Bruce Fraser, Gunter Senft, Adam Jaworski, Paul
Chilton, Anna Duszak, Neal R. Norrick, Mario Brdar, Robyn Carston, Ken Turner
and Laszlo Komlosi. Selected papers from the past conferences were published by
nternational publishers. Below you will find information on the 5th Symposium.
We cordially invite you to participate and will try to make your stay in Lodz
interesting and professionally rewarding.

The Lodz Pragmatics Symposium Organizing Committee

The conference comes as an answer to substantial intensification of
pragmatics-oriented research in the past four decades, and provides forum for
its essential systematization. The conference will also feature a special
session on Intercultural Communication and Speech Actions.


Jens Allwood (University of Gothenburg, Sweden); 
Anita Fetzer (University of Wuerzburg, Germany); 
Katarzyna M. Jaszczo?t (University of Cambridge, United Kingdom); 
Jef Verschueren (University of Antwerp, Belgium).

The language of the conference is English. 

Call for Papers:

We encourage papers representing current state of research in the field of
linguistic pragmatics seen in the broad sense as a functional (i. e. cognitive,
social and cultural) perspective on language and communication. Participants are
invited to prepare 20-minute presentations on one of the following topics:

-Application of linguistic pragmatics in the analysis of real-life discourse
(language of politics and the media; advertising; social communication;
misunderstandings; humor, etc.);
-Status of linguistic pragmatics in relation to such disciplines as
sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics (also clinical pragmatics), anthropology
(also ''emancipatory pragmatics''), social psychology, cognitive linguistics and
culture studies; 
-Language and processes of ideological symbolization, including folk linguistic
ideologies, normative use of language and language-based reproduction of ideologies;
-Language of the state, viz. language policies and language planning at various
stages of the information flow, including the art of document design and press
-Societal multilingualism, linguistic pluralism and linguistic minority policies;
-Methodology of pragmatic investigation and parameters of analysis;
-Pragmatic aspects of translation and interpreting;
-Implementation of pragmatic awareness in foreign language teaching.

The conference will feature a special session on Intercultural Communication and
Speech Actions coordinated by Iwona Plisiecka (iw.plisiecka at gmail.com)

Papers focused on intercultural aspects of communication in their mono- and
multilingual settings, e.g.:

-Speech act theory-oriented research
-Gricean, neo-Gricean and post-Gricean analysis of linguistic performance
-Intercultural communication (language contact, (im)politeness & identity)
-Perspectives on language as action (in all walks of life: everyday discourse,
media, education, professional settings, problems of linguistic construction &
maintenance of identity, genres in pragmatics)
-Intersection of philosophy of language & pragmatics (theoretical &
methodological issues, definition of pragmatics, interdisciplinarity--merits &
conflicts) are especially invited to be integrated in this strand for a more
focused discussion.

For details please contact Dr. Iwona Witczak-Plisiecka
(wipiw at uni.lodz.pl or iw.plisiecka at gmail.com)

The list of topics is not exhaustive.
