Meeting Description:

The Research Institute for Linguistics, Hungarian Academy of Sciences is pleased
to announce the Word-classes Workshop, Budapest Uralic Workshop 5, to be held
from 11th to 13th January, 2006.

For the past years a great number of studies have appeared revising the
traditional viewpoints, and at the same time, providing complex and more exact
methods that facilitate us to compare the word-classes of the different
languages in one and the same frame. These studies may provide considerable
results in the historical-comparative, as well as in the typological researches.
This is why the themes and methods of our conference may vary from the
morphological approaches, which have been (most) general in Uralistics, through
semantics and lexicology to syntax, and it may concern phonology, as well.

Papers concerning the following themes are welcome:
-What words / word-classes belong to open and closed word-classes?
-What criteria can be used in specifying word classes?
-Is there permeability between word-classes? If there is, under what conditions?
-What properties can serve as criteria for subgrouping within word-classes?

According to the tradition of BUW, the organizers, with the purpose of allowing
more interaction between participants, do not intend to limit the length of

The languages of the workshop: Hungarian, English.

Abstracts should be e-mailed to ( bum5nytud.hu ) as a PDF, Microsoft Word, RTF
(special font items travel best as a PDF.) The abstracts should be sent by 30th
September, 2005. Authors will be notified by the end of October as to whether
their papers have been accepted.

Meeting Description:

Dear Colleague,

Next year we will have a pleasure to organize the 3rd Łódź Symposium on
linguistic pragmatics. The first and second conference were held at Łódź
University in May 2002 and May 2004, and brought together over a hundred
scholars from Europe, Asia and the Americas. We had an opportunity to discuss a
variety of current topics in pragmatics, discourse analysis and other relevant
areas, as well as to listen to a number of inspiring plenary lectures given by
such distinguished scholars as Katarzyna M. Jaszczołt, Jef Verschueren, Roman
Kalisz, Rachel Giora, Mira Ariel, Richard W. Janney, Bruce Fraser, Gunter Senft
and Adam Jaworski. Select papers from the past conferences were published by
international publishers. Below you will find information on the 3rd Symposium.
We cordially invite you to participate and will try to make your stay in Łódź
interesting and professionally rewarding.

Organizing Committee:
Dr hab. Piotr Cap (Conference Chair)
Mgr Marta Dynel-Buczkowska, M.A. (Conference Secretary)
Mgr Adam Bednarek, M.A. (Conference Secretary)

The conference comes as an answer to substantial intensification of
pragmatics-oriented research in the recent decade, and provides forum for its
essential systematization.
The organizers encourage papers representing current state of research in the
field of linguistic pragmatics seen in the broad sense as a functional (i.e.
cognitive, social and cultural) perspective on language and communication.
Participants are invited to prepare 20-minute presentations on one of the
following topics:

- application of linguistic pragmatics in the analysis of real-life discourse
(language of politics and the media; advertising; social communication;
misunderstandings; humor, etc.)
- status of pragmatics in relation to such disciplines as sociolinguistics,
anthropology, social psychology, cognitivism and culture studies
- methodology of pragmatic investigation and parameters of analysis
- implementation of pragmatic awareness in foreign language teaching
NB: The list of topics is NOT exhaustive

The organizers hope to offer multiple grounds for discussion of a genuinely
cross-disciplinary approach to linguistic pragmatics.

The organizers invited a number of leading specialists in the area, all of whom
have already confirmed their participation:

NORMAN FAIRCLOUGH (University of Lancaster)
ROBYN CARSTON (University College London)
PAUL CHILTON (University of East Anglia)
NEAL R. NORRICK (University of Saarland)
ANNA DUSZAK (University of Warsaw)
MARIO BRDAR (University of Osijek)
