Meeting Description: The Institute of Modern Greek Studies (M. Triandaphyllidis Foundation), Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, is pleased to announce a two-day Symposium on ‘Greek language and spoken communication’, to be held on 18-19 September 2014, in the framework of the research project Greek talk-in-interaction and Conversation Analysis.

The Symposium aims to examine pragmatic and sociolinguistic aspects of Modern Greek, focusing on its use in communication and, more specifically, in naturally occurring spoken interaction in everyday or institutional contexts. There are no restrictions regarding the phenomena to be examined, provided that their analysis is grounded on empirical data drawn from tape-/video-recordings of naturally occurring talk. Due to the orientation of the project, papers adopting a Conversation Analysis perspective will be given priority, without other approaches being excluded.
