Meeting Description: The Conference is one of a series of conferences on discourse markers in Romance languages (Madrid, 2010; Buenos Aires, 2011; Campinas, 2012; Heidelberg 2015) and aims to build on the previous events. The conference serves as a platform for internationally renowned linguists and young researchers alike to exchange views and ideas and to broaden their research perspectives. This year’s theme will specifically question issues of categorization and boundaries of the class of discourse markers. In this respect, discourse markers studies invite to further investigate the interfaces between several levels of linguistic analysis (Prosody, Syntax, Semantics, Pragmatics, Discourse).

With special reference to discourse marker research, the conference will be an opportunity to look at the findings provided so far by theoretical and applied linguistics and related disciplines.

The following plenary speakers have already confirmed their attendance:

Dr. Catherine Bolly, Universität zu Köln: Multimodal pragmatic constructions at the speech-gesture interface applied to French
Prof. Maria Josep Cuenca, Universitat de València: Contrastive markers in contrast in Spanish and Catalan

Prof. Jacqueline Visconti, Università degli Studi di Genova: On the diachrony of discourse markers, with a focus on Italian
