Message 2: 6th North West Centre for Linguistics Conference

6th North West Centre for Linguistics Conference 
Short Title: 6th NWCL Conference

Date: 14-NOV-03 - 16-NOV-03
Location: Preston, Lancashire, United Kingdom

Meeting URL: http://www.nwcl.salford.ac.uk

Linguistic Sub-field: Pragmatics, Phonology, Phonetics 
Call Deadline: 20-Jun-2003

Meeting Description:

Organised by Anne WIchmann (University of Central Lancashire) and
Diane Blakemore (University of Salford)

Invited speakers: Carlos Gussenhoven, Jill House, John Local, Deirdre
Wilson

The focus in research in prosody has recently moved from intonational
phonology to areas which interface with other domains, most notably
discourse and pragmatics. At the same time, research in pragmatics and
discourse has recognized a need to take account of prosodic
phenomena. In this way, it has become possible to identify a set of
phenomena where research in pragmatics feeds into research in prosody
and vice versa _ for example, focus and information structure,
questions about processing units and the identification of an
utterance, the communication of attitudes and emotions, constraints on
implicatures.

The aim of this conference is to provide a forum in which researchers
from prosody and pragmatics can pool their research, and in this way
contribute to a fuller understanding of the role prosody plays in
pragmatic interpretation. 

Guest speakers:
Wallace Chafe, University of California, Santa Barbara
Carlos Gussenhoven, University of Nijmegen
Jill House, University College London
John Local, University of York
Deirdre Wilson, University College London

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS

An important focus for research in prosody is currently its interface
with other domains, including discourse and pragmatics. At the same
time, research in pragmatics and discourse recognises a need to take
account of prosodic phenomena. In this way it has become possible to
identify a set of phenomena where research in pragmatics feeds into
research in prosody and vice versa - for example, focus and
information structure, questions about processing units and the
identification of an utterance, the communication of attitudes and
emotions, constraints on implicatures. The aim of this conference is
to provide a forum in which researchers from prosody and pragmatics
can pool their research, and in this way contribute to a fuller
understanding of the role prosody plays in pragmatic interpretation.

We invite abstracts for papers (30 minutes + 10 minutes
discussion). Papers need not specifically address the interface
between prosody and pragmatics, but will be chosen for the inherent
quality of the prosodic or pragmatic analysis they offer and their
potential to contribute to an understanding of the relationship
between the two.

A selection of papers from the conference will be published in a
Special Issue of The Journal of Pragmatics (eds. Anne Wichmann & Diane
Blakemore)

Submission of abstracts:
Abstracts must conform to the following guidelines:
- abstracts must be sent in electronic form (Word, WP, RTF)
- abstracts must be no longer than 1 page (A4) and typed in a Times
New Roman (12pt) font
- abstracts must have the title of the paper centred at the top of the
page
- the author's name, affiliation and title of the paper must be given
on a separate page (abstracts will be refereed anonymously)


EXTENDED DEADLINE
