Call Deadline: 05-Oct-2016 

Meeting Description:

This meeting brings together historical linguists and experimentally oriented
researchers with the aim of exchanging ideas and hypotheses from the different
disciplines and identifying areas of interest for joined research. Semantic
but also grammatical change has been associated with principles of language
use. For example, meaning alternations may start out within a focused group of
users and the initially specialized meaning may, across time, be adopted by
the entire speech community (Koch 2004). These different stages of dispersion
and language use may be reflected in the underlying processes (cf. Schumacher
2013, 2015 for lexicalized vs. ad-hoc alternations).  Psycholinguistic
investigation may also inform the directionality of semantic change (Jäger &
Rosenbach 2008). The interplay between linguistic form, pragmatic function and
language processing may thus open up new avenues for the study of language in
use from which both disciplines (historical pragmatics and experimental
pragmatics) may benefit.

Organizers: Gerhard Jäger (Tübingen), Ira Noveck (CNRS Lyon) & Petra B.
Schumacher (Cologne)

Billy Clark (Middlesex University London)
