Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics; Semantics

Meeting Description:

Meaning is regarded as representing update potential in context rather than
merely as truth-conditions, getting increasingly important. As more and more
crosslinguistic generalizations and differentiations gain ground, Japanese and
Korean became a center of attention for comparison and contrast as non-English
langauges. In this context, we provide a forum to discuss issues related to
Semantics/Pragmatics from Japanese and Korean perspectives on Nov 8 (Thursday),
2007, as a pre-conference workshop of Japanese/Korean Linguistics Conference 17
(Nov 9-11). Everyone is welcome.
