Meeting Description:

27th European Systemic Functional Linguistics Conference: Systemic Functional
Linguistics at the Crossroads: Intercultural and Contrastive Descriptions of
University of Salamanca, Spain
29 June - 01 July, 2017

>From a systemic functional perspective, language is considered essentially a
probabilistic system. An important part of the meaning of any feature is its
relative probability in relation to other mutually defining features and,
therefore, language description is intimately related to the (un)expectedness
of the behaviour, presence, absence, etc. of linguistic phenomena. However,
globalization is dynamically pervading cultural and historical groups,
identities and languages to an unprecedented extent and thus it is not
surprising that cultural differences, hybridizing processes and diversity are
challenging our knowledge and our expectations on the probability and extent
of linguistic phenomena and their behaviour.

Thematic Panel Sessions:

- SFL at Intercultural Crossroads
- SFL at Contrastive Crossroads
- SFL at Crossroads in Linguistics and Beyond
- SFL at the Cutting Edge of Descriptions of Language

(Language of this colloquium: Spanish) (please check the conference website

- 2nd Colloquium ‘Empirical Evidence and Theoretical Assumptions in SFL’
(Language of this colloquium: English) (please check the conference website
for this CFP)
