Meeting Description: In 1943, a group of linguists at colleges and universities in the New York area, including many members of the École Libre des Hautes Études in exile, came together to form the Linguistic Circle of New York. The model for the new organization was the Société de Linguistique de Paris. Among the first members were Henri F. Muller, Giuliano Bonfante, and Roman Jakobson.

In recognition of the French roots of the International Linguistic Association, the conference will be held on May 22-24, 2014 at the Université de Paris II, Panthéon-Assas, in Paris, France.

The Linguistics of Rhetoric and Debate:

Rhetoric has developed as a discursive discipline whose primary purpose is one of persuading the hearer to adopt the speaker's point of view. The debate uses rhetorical discourse to present opposing arguments to an audience, until the audience, or members of it, adopts one side or the other as the more reasonable argument. Linguistic studies have sought to analyze the structure of discourse in order to find syntactic, semantic and pragmatic patterns that make rhetorical texts effective in changing the audience's mind.
