|Meeting Description:||The second International Symposium on Functional Linguistics will be held at the Federal University of São Carlos. As in the first symposium it aims to bring together researchers from different functionalist backgrounds, to discuss theoretical and descriptive issues from different points of view. This symposium will specifically address the question of the interface between morphosyntax, semantics and pragmatics in the description and analysis of language. It departs from the principle that grammar is somewhat ‘modular’, which means that the meaning, in a broad sense, is encoded in languages through levels / layers / patterns that characterize functional theories in general.
