With its contrastive focus, the symposium serves as a platform for internationally renowned linguists and particularly for young researchers to exchange views and ideas and to broaden their research perspectives.

With special reference to discourse particle research, the conference will be an opportunity to look at the findings provided so far by contrastive linguistics and related disciplines. The following plenary speakers have already confirmed their attendance: 

Prof. Karin Aijmer, Göteborgs Universitet
