Explicit and implicit information in text. Information structure across languages
Conference to be arranged by the project SPRIK Språk i kontrast/Languages in
Contrast at the University of Oslo, Norway, June 8-10, 2006.
The goal of the conference is to present and discuss current research in text
interpretation, particularly textual cohesion and coherence across languages. We
aim to bring together researchers interested in systematizing and explaining the
variety of means exploited across languages to create cohesion and establish
dependencies and discourse hierarchies in text. Different languages exploit
similar means differently, partly due to competing structures available in the
individual languages, partly due to language-typological differences. We are
interested in empirically based cross-linguistic studies that contribute to a
better understanding of explicit and implicit information in 'real' discourse,
as well as in theoretical research modelling textual cohesion/coherence.
Papers dealing with the following topics are welcome:
- Triggers for textual updating across languages. What are the triggers and how
do they differ across languages?
- Comparable clause connectives, their distribution and interpretation in
- Discourse subordinating and discourse coordinating devices across languages.
- Implicit and explicit means of structuring information in text - what
difference do they make?
- Presuppositional accounts of the implicit.
- The semantic/pragmatic distinction in text interpretation (cross-linguistic
research and translation).
- The interplay between information structure (at sentence level) and discourse
structure and information flow at text level.
We welcome submissions from different theoretical frameworks.
