Meeting Description:

In recognition of the French roots of the International Linguistic Association, the Conference will be held on May 22-24, 2014 at the Université de Paris II, Panthéon-Assas, in Paris, France.

The Linguistics of Rhetoric and Debate:

Rhetoric has developed as a discursive discipline whose primary purpose is one of persuading the hearer to adopt the speaker's point of view. The debate uses rhetorical discourse to present opposing arguments to an audience, until the audience, or members of it, adopts one side or the other as the more reasonable argument. Linguistic studies have sought to analyze the structure of discourse in order to find syntactic, semantic and pragmatic patterns that make rhetorical texts effective in changing the audience's mind.

Call for Papers:

In 1943, a group of linguists at colleges and universities in the New York area, including many members of the École Libre des Hautes Études in exile, came together to form the Linguistic Circle of New York. The model for the new organization was the Société de Linguistique de Paris. Among the first members were Henri F. Muller, Giuliano Bonfante, and Roman Jakobson.

In recognition of the French roots of the International Linguistic Association, the Conference will be held on May 22-24, 2014 at the Université de Paris II, Panthéon-Assas, in Paris, France.

The organizers of the ILA's 59th Annual Conference solicit papers on linguistic approaches to the study of rhetoric and debate, with the intention of encouraging renewed interest in the subject at a time when debate is conducted in greatly expanded arenas and in new communicative conditions.

Topics that might be addressed under this theme include:

- Pedagogical approaches to writing and composition
- Legal language
- Argument structure
- Discourse analysis
- Pragmatics
- Persuasive writing and speechmaking
- Digital rhetoric and debate 
- Classical approaches to rhetoric and interface with linguistics
- Metaphor and cognition in argumentation
- Humor and persuasion
- Rhetoric and semiotics
- Problems in translation
- Syntax-semantic interface
- Oral and literate approaches to rhetoric, as described by Walter Ong

In keeping with the ILA tradition, we also invite papers on other areas of linguistics. Proposals may be submitted for individual presentations or for 90-minute panels comprising three or four speakers. Each presentation should last no more than thirty minutes, including time for questions and discussion. The languages of the Conference are English and French with plenary talks in English.

Submit abstracts in English or French to the Conference Coordinator (deadline: January 13, 2014):  
Annika Wendt, awendt at ilaword.org.

Inquiries may be sent to the Conference Co-Chairs:  

Kathleen O'Connor-Bater, oconnorbaterk at oldwestbury.edu or 
Kathryn English, kathryn.english at u-paris2.fr
