Call for Papers

The conference aims at bringing together various aspects of research in
semantics and pragmatics, based on, or otherwise pertaining to, linguistic
constructions from at least two different languages.

Papers are invited that contribute to research on semantic and pragmatic
theory, the interface between semantics and pragmatics, as well as more
empirically based presentations that report on the evidence from collected
data in a contrastive linguistic perspective. We also welcome papers on the 
methodology and typology of contrastive studies with special reference
to semantics and pragmatics.

The abstracts should be not longer than one A4 page and should contain a
clear indication of the objectives, method, and languages discussed. Five
copies of the abstract should be sent: four anonymous for refereeing by
the Conference Programme Committee and one with name and affiliation to be
printed in the booklet of Conference Abstracts. Please attach a card with
your name, full postal address, email address and fax and telephone

Please send the abstract by 30 April 2000 to:
