Fillers in Grammar and Discourse

Panel Proposed at the 10th International Pragmatics Conference
8-13 July 2007, Göteborg, Sweden



We would like to invite researchers interested in the role of fillers in grammar

of fillers, their morphophonology, morphosyntax, pragmatics and/or diachronic
development in a particular language or across a sample of languages are
welcome. We would also be interested to have contributions from psycholinguists
working on fillers in language acquisition and from neurolinguists who are
interested in the use of repair strategies in lexical access failure.


If you are interested, please send one page abstract (with an optional
additional page for data and references) by September 4, 2006 to
