American Pragmatics Association (AMPRA)

The goal of the conference is to promote both theoretical and applied research in pragmatics, and bring together scholars who are interested in different subfields of pragmatics (philosophical, linguistic, cognitive, social, intercultural, interlanguage, etc.). Three main topics of the conference are as follows:

(i) Pragmatic theories: neo-Gricean approaches,
relevance theory, theory of mind, meaning, role
of context, grammaticalization, semantics-
pragmatics interface, explicature, implicature,
speech act theory, presuppositions,
im/politeness, experimental pragmatics, etc.

(ii) Intercultural, cross-cultural and societal
aspects of pragmatics: research involving more
than one language and culture or varieties of
one language, lingua franca, technologically
mediated communication, bilinguals’ and
heritage speakers’ language use, intercultural
misunderstandings, service encounters, effect
of dual language and multilingual systems on
the development and use of pragmatic skills,
language of aggression and conflict, service
encounters in monolingual or multilingual
contexts, address forms, etc.

(iii) Applications: usage and corpus-based
approaches, pragmatic competence,
teachability and learnability of pragmatic
skills, pragmatic variation, developmental
pragmatics, cross-cultural pragmatics, etc.
