Call for papers for the symposium COHERENCE RELATIONS IN GRAMMAR, DISCOURSE

Coherence relations are object of studies in diverse areas in Linguistics.
In Functional Linguistics, a wide range of research studies investigate how
coherence relations arise from the combination of paratactic and hypotactic
clauses and their discourse functions. In Discourse Analysis, relations
held between texts spans have been studied in order to characterize various
genres. In Cognitive Linguistics, the investigation goes in the direction
of explicating how conceptual material that gives rise to the semantic and
pragmatic functions of coherence relations is packed into linguistic
material. From a computational point of view, applications have been
developed for machines to automatically perform tasks such as parsing,
discourse unit segmentation, detection of central units, study translation
strategies, discourse based sentiment analysis, discourse based question
answering, discourse summarization. In pedagogical applications, the study
of coherence relations in discourse can be useful to produce writing and
reading resources for teachers and students. In this symposium, we intend
to gather studies regarding coherence relations in grammar, discourse and
cognition from the perspective of Rhetorical Structure Theory and related
theories. Papers can be presented in Portuguese, Spanish or English.

The symposium will be held as part of the main conference “6th
