Call For Papers

Abstracts (max. 300 words) are invited for papers on topics relevant to the
fields of meaning, context & cognition with the goal of the conference to
integrate and promote both theoretical and applied research from the 
interface of semantics and pragmatics.

During the 2011 meeting we would like to focus on the following areas:
- Context (definitions, the semantics-pragmatics interface, the explicit-
implicit distinction, context typologies)
- Speech Acts and Speech Action (speech act theory-oriented research, 
interactional approaches, politeness, non-sentential speech acts)
- Language and Emotion (emotion and linguistic performance, humour, 
intercultural perspectives, politeness and emotion)
- Linguistic Interfaces (meeting grounds for linguistics and other disciplines, 
e.g. sociolinguistics, psycholinguistics, neurolinguistics, political studies, 
media studies, emancipatory pragmatics and anthropological linguistics, 
cognitive studies, intersection of philosophy of language and linguistics, 
interdisciplinarity - merits & conflicts)
- Intercultural Perspectives on Discourse Semantics (contrastive studies, 
media discourse, global communication, bilingual and multilingual contexts, 
intercultural clashes and misunderstandings, translation-related issues)
- Applications (corpus studies, LSP, experimental studies, comparative &
contrastive studies, enhancing development and teachability of
linguistic-pragmatic skills in bilingual and multilingual contexts)
