Meeting Description:

Address(ing) (Pro)Nouns. Sociolinguistics and Grammar of Terms of Address
Workshop at Freie Universität Berlin, Germany
30 May - 1 June 2013
Organizer: Horst Simon
Organizing team: Tanja Ackermann, Edgar Baumgärtner, Christian Forche, Christian Zimmer

In recent years, it has become difficult to follow the multitude of projects and approaches in the field of address term research. Now it is time to bring together researchers studying different languages and working in different frameworks, such as sociolinguistics, pragmatics and grammatical description.

In general, the main question to be answered is: Who uses which form of address when, and why? While older approaches often assumed rather static and wholesale systems of address terms, it seems to become clear that models capturing the dynamicity of address systems are more appropriate to describe the linguistic facts.

The following colleagues have agreed to present papers:

John Hajek (Melbourne)
Bettina Kluge (Bielefeld)
Heinz L. Kretzenbacher (Melbourne)
Hanna Lappalainen (Helsinki) & Johanna Isosävi (Helsinki)
Célia Lopes (Rio de Janeiro)
Catrin Norrby (Stockholm) & Doris Schüpbach (Melbourne)
Catrin Norrby et al. (Stockholm et al.)
Renate Pajusalu (Tartu)
Johanna Tanner (Helsinki)
Roel Vismans (Sheffield)

2nd Call for Papers:

Themes to be explored include:

- Sociolinguistic distribution of address forms within a society
- The role of inter- (and intra-)individual variation within a speech community
- Address in intercultural encounters
- Address in (literary) translation
- Strategic interactional use of address variation
- Interplay of nominal and pronominal address forms
- Interplay of address forms and forms of self-reference
- Acquisition of address rules
- Diachrony of address systems
- Pronominalisation of address nouns
- Typology of address systems
- Indirect address forms
- Grammatical repercussions of polite address (agreement etc.)
- Politeness models and their reflection in address term research
- Methods of data collection on address usage

Papers on other suitable themes are also warmly welcomed.

The main purpose of the workshop is to take stock of what has been achieved in terms of facts and methods of address research - and to open up perspectives for future work. We therefore invite all researchers to submit abstracts for papers detailing data or discussing methodological issues with regard to address terms. The workshop will also provide an opportunity for exploring collaboration.

Please send an anonymous abstract of no more than 500 words, excluding references, to histling at zedat.fu-berlin.de.

There will be 40-minute slots, including discussion time.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: 31 January 2013
Notification of acceptance: mid-February 2013
