Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics 

Call Deadline: 15-Apr-2016 

Meeting Description:

The goal of the conference is to promote both theoretical and applied research in pragmatics, and to bring together scholars who are interested in different subfields of pragmatics (philosophical, linguistic, cognitive, social, intercultural, interlanguage, etc.). Three main topics of the conference are as follows:

(i) Pragmatic theories: neo-Gricean approaches, relevance theory, theory of  mind, meaning, role of context, grammaticalization, semantics-pragmatics interface, explicature, implicature, speech act theory, presuppositions, im/politeness, experimental pragmatics, etc.

(ii) Intercultural, cross-cultural and societal aspects of pragmatics: research involving more than one language and culture or varieties of one language, lingua franca, technologically mediated communication, bilinguals’ and heritage speakers’ language use, intercultural misunderstandings, service encounters, effect of dual language and multilingual systems on the development and use of pragmatic skills, etc. 

(iii) Applications: usage and corpus-based approaches, pragmatic competence, teachability and learnability of pragmatic skills, pragmatic variation, developmental pragmatics, cross-cultural pragmatics, etc.
