WAKASHAN LINGUISTICS CONFERENCE

University of British Columbia
August 9-11, 2004

The Department of Linguistics at the University of British Columbia is
pleased to announce the first-ever Wakashan Linguistics Conference.
The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers and
educators with an interest in Wakashan languages. Though there is a
long and rich tradition of linguistic work on Wakashan, and over the
years there have been several important language revitalization
efforts in Wakashan-speaking communities, there has never been a
single forum where researchers and educators can come together from
all across the Wakashan-speaking world to share knowledge and ideas.

The conference will be divided into two parts (though participants are
strongly encouraged to attend both). The first part, dedicated to
descriptive and theoretical linguistic work on Wakashan languages,
will be held at the University of British Columbia on August 9-10. The
second part, devoted to presentations on and discussion of language
revitalization, will be hosted on the final day of the conference by
the Squamish Nation in North Vancouver. The dates of the Wakashan
Linguistics Conference have been synchronised with those of the
International Conference on Salish and Neighbouring Languages, which
will be held at the Squamish Nation on August 11-13.

For those wishing to present a paper in the first part of the
conference, see the Call for Papers below. For those interested in
presenting during the second part, please contact us directly at
wakashanarts.ubc.ca.

Linguistic Sub-field: General Linguistics 


Meeting Description:

The Eighth Symposium on Logic and Language will be held in Debrecen

of Debrecen, in conjunction with the Research Institute for
Linguistics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (Budapest).

The 2004 forum is the eighth instalment of the Logic and Language
Symposium series, which is designed to provide a forum where logicians
and linguists meet to share and discuss current issues concerning how
theories of linguistics and logic influence each other, with the aim
of promoting a fruitful cooperation. Preceding symposiums took place
in Debrecen (1987), Hajduszoboszlo (1989), Revfulop (1990), Budapest
(1992), Noszvaj (1994), Budapest (1998) and Pecs (2002).

THEMES

The Eighth Symposium on Logic and Language invites submissions for
25-minute presentations (plus 10 minutes for discussion) especially on
the various aspects of contextuality and the role it plays in logic
and linguistics.

The importance of the notion of context is widely acknowledged, even
if to varying degrees, among pursuers of theories of natural as well
as of formal languages. The very same word ''context'' often refers to
quite heterogeneous sets of intuitions, which is obviously reflected
in the corresponding formalisms. The aim of the Symposium is to
analyse, compare and discuss a wide range of problems which are
(directly or indirectly) related to the proper treatment of
contextuality both in logic and in linguistics. We envisage a meeting
with invited keynote speakers and a restricted number of papers from
logicians, linguists, philosophers and computer scientists working on
the formalization of contexts and the use of context in
applications. In general, we hope to promote a discussion on how to
recognize, acquire and represent contextual information as well as on
the interplay between particular formalisms and the contextual
information they aim to capture.

We also welcome contributions concerning related areas of the
description of languages. There exist various logics of context and it
is a matter of constant discussion to what extent we need reference to
context in approaches to information content, information structure,
logically relevant sense, intensionality, dynamicity, valid inference,
the proof theoretic handling of free variables, etc. On the
linguistics side, an adequate semantic or syntactic account of a wide
range of empirical phenomena, such as anaphora, tense, aspectuality,
topichood, focushood, contrastivity, etc. heavily depends on the use
and inclusion of different types of contextual information. The study
of these specific domains might help to develop a fuller understanding
of the notion of context.

The programme will also include a special series of short lectures
given by members of the Advisory and Review Board as well as the
following keynote lectures (please note that the titles are
preliminary):

Katalin Kiss (Research Institute for Linguistics of the Hungarian
Academy of Sciences) ''Topic Selection and Contextuality''

Chris Fox (University of Essex) and Shalom Lappin (King's College,
London) ''Generating Underspecified Interpretations as Terms of the
Representation Language''

Paul Dekker (University of Amsterdam) ''Contexts for Questions''
