Meeting Description:


''Stancetaking in Discourse: subjectivity in interaction''
the 10th biennial Rice Linguistics Symposium
March 31-April 3, 2004, 
Rice University, Houston, TX.

The Department of Linguistics at Rice University is pleased to
announce the 10th Biennial Rice Linguistics symposium: ''Stancetaking
in Discourse: subjectivity in interaction''. Presenters have been
invited from linguistics and related disciplines to address
stancetaking in naturally-occurring spoken and/or written discourse.
Stance--broadly construed as the expression of emotion, attitude,
subjectivity, and perspective--permeates language use at all levels.
The symposium seeks to explore the interrelationship of stancetaking
with language form and function, cultural construction, and social
interaction. Invited speakers will address these issues from a range
of approaches, including quantitative methodologies of
discourse/corpus linguistics and qualitative methodologies of
ethnography and Conversation Analysis.

There is no registration fee to attend the symposium, but you will
need to pre-register by e-mailing Robert Englebretson at
