Meeting Description: This 7th edition of the NDLP conference series aims to respond to a surge of new research in pragmatics, with a view to bringing together the novel, empirically, experimentally and clinically based models, and classical topics/frameworks such as Gricean pragmatics, Speech Act Theory and presupposition. We encourage papers (re-)examining the semantics-pragmatics boundary, which has been sometimes blurred by the confrontation of the new and the traditional frameworks. Proposals are welcome at the intersection of the philosophy of language and pragmatics dealing with theoretical, methodological and definitional issues, as well as issues of interdisciplinarity in pragmatic investigation.

While we specially encourage presentations of theoretical approaches which have a basis in empirical studies, or allow for experimentally testable predictions, the conference continues to be open to all kinds of pragmatics oriented research recognizing pragmatics as a functional (i.e. cognitive, social and cultural) perspective on language and communication. This applies to functional studies involving multiple and heterogeneous territories: everyday discourse, (online) media, education, political and professional settings, problems of linguistic construction and maintenance of identity, communicative genres, issues of multilingualism and linguistic pluralism, pragmatic aspects of translation, pragmatic awareness in foreign language teaching, and more.
