Meeting Description:

The SEM symposium series aims at confronting approaches, data and theories in
descriptive linguistics, psycholinguistics and formal semantics, focusing each
time on a specific issue within the study of meaning. SEM-05 will focus on
discourse segmentation and organization ('Connectives, discourse framing and
discourse structure: from corpus-based and experimental analyses to discourse
theories'). Its goal is to establish links between different areas of research
into discourse construction and interpretation.
