Call Deadline: 30-Sep-2003

Meeting Description:

Papers on any aspect of linguistic analysis in which the postulation

distribution of linguistic forms. A special session will be devoted
to functional linguistics in language education. Papers are invited on
any aspect of linguistic analysis in which the postulation of
meaningful signals plays a central role in explaining the distribution
of linguistic forms. A special session will be devoted to functional
linguistics in language education.

Tqhe Columbia School is a group of linguists developing the theoretical
framework originally established by the late William Diver. Language
is seen as a symbolic tool whose structure is shaped both by its
communicative function and by the characteristics of its human users.
Grammatical analyses account for the distribution of linguistic forms
as an interaction between linguistic meaning and pragmatic and
functional factors such as inference, ease of processing, and
iconicity. Phonological analyses explain the syntagmatic and
paradigmatic distribution of phonological units within signals, also
drawing on both communicative function and human physiological and
psychological characteristics.
