Message 1: Implicature and Conversational Meaning

Linguistic Subfield: General Linguistics

Call Deadline: 05-Mar-2004


Meeting Description: 
The central notion that dominated linguistic pragmatics since the
early seventies is Grice's notion of conversational implicature. It
is based on the insight that, by means of general principles of
rational communication, we may convey more with the use of a sentence
than just its conventional meaning. What is actually conveyed depends
on the utterance situation, the linguistic context, and the goals and
preferences of the interlocutors. Hence, what is actually meant may
deviate in various ways from what is literally said. Over the last few
years there is a renewed interest in Gricean pragmatics from different
theoretical perspectives. This comprises work in a dynamic framework,
non-monotonic reasoning, and optimality and game theoretic
approaches. The workshop aims to provide a forum for advanced PhD
students and researchers to present and discuss their work with
colleagues and researchers who work in the broad subject areas
represented at ESSLLI.

Message 2: International Conference on Tone and Intonation

Date: Thu, 12 Feb 2004 11:27:14 -0500 (EST)
From: Carlos Gussenhoven c.gussenhoven <Carlos>
Subject: International Conference on Tone and Intonation

International Conference on Tone and Intonation

9-Sep-2004 - 11-Sep-2004
Massaria, Santorini, Greece

Contact name: Carlos Gussenhoven
Contact email: tieconferencelet.kun.nl
Conference URL: http://www.let.kun.nl/tie

Linguistic Subfield: Phonology

Call Deadline: 1-Mar-2004


Meeting Description:

The International Conference on Tone and Intonation will be held at
the Santorini Image Hotel in Massaria (Santorini, Greece), 9-11
September 2004. The conference is the closing event of a three-year
scientific exchange programme funded by the European Science
Foundation as the Network 'Tone and Intonation in Europe' (TIE). The
aim of the network has been to stimulate and coordinate research on
the prosody of European languages and language varieties, with special
emphasis on languages that feature lexical tone. The workshops have
been devoted to tonogenesis, experimental procedures, and typology,
and have attempted to embed the discussion of the European languages
in a global typological perspective.

The conference intends to close off the Network programme in the same
spirit, and will thus include contributions dealing with European as
well as non-European languages. While there will be a preference for
papers on the interaction between intonation and lexical tone,
typologically, historically and psycholinguistically oriented work,
including brain imaging research, on either tone or intonation is
welcomed.
