Reviewing Linguistic Thought: Perspectives into the 21st Century

Department of Language and Linguistics
Faculty of English Studies
School of Philosophy
National and Kapodistrian University of Athens
21-24 May 2002, Athens

The Conference aims to encourage scholars and researchers from different 
theoretical backgrounds to discuss the prospects of linguistics in the 
new millennium. Emphasis will be placed on these views that allow for a 
dialogue, and even some interaction, between different theoretical 

The 20th century has witnessed the creation of distinct and very often 
opposing models of linguistic analysis; synchronic vs. diachronic, 
formal vs. non-formal, modular vs. non-modular, psychological vs. 
social, relativist vs. non-relativist, are only some of the dichotomies 
of 20th century linguistics. The Conference invites participants to 
reconsider such dichotomies, review their impact on the development of 
linguistic thought and make suggestions on overlapping areas of interest 
leading to new perspectives.

The organizing and scientific committees invite papers that address any 
of the theoretical issues above by drawing on data from all levels and 
perspectives of linguistic or interdisciplinary analysis (phonology, 
morphology, syntax, semantics, pragmatics, discourse, psycholinguistics, 
sociolinguistics, etc.). Priority will be given to analyses that provide 
evidence in favour of abolishing strict dichotomies between theoretical 
approaches and/or levels of linguistic analysis and as such promote a 
dialogue among different theoretical perspectives. Opposing evidence is 
also welcome.

Papers will be 20-minute long and will be followed by 10 minutes of 
discussion. The language of the Conference is English.
