Meeting description
Over the last decades discourse has taken up an important place in the
field of linguistics. Nowadays the interface between grammar and
language use is a demanding topic which many scholars deal with on a
formal, functional and typological basis. Since the focus of this years
conference will be the relation between discourse and grammar, we
especially welcome contributions in the following domains:

- formal, functional and typological accounts of grammatical and
discourse-related issues;
- formal, functional and typological analyses of morphological and
syntactic structures;
- formal, functional and typological accounts of textual phenomena
(inversion, discourse anaphora, deixis, etc.);
- historical pragmatics;
- pragmatic analyses of functionally-grounded constructions;
- theoretical studies aiming at grounding formal or functional accounts
within a theory of science.

Scholars are also encouraged to organize workshops dealing with specific
topics. Workshops should be open to all participants and favor the
debate on ongoing research.

Individual papers are 20 minutes long, plus 10 minutes for questions and
discussion. Workshop papers can last 30 minutes, provided that an
additional time slot is reserved for discussion. To improve the
interaction among scholars we invite all participants to prepare a
hand-out, a computer assisted presentation or transparencies, or a
combination of these.

In the perspective of extending the membership of the SLE
<>, both members and
non-members are invited to send in an abstract.
