Meeting Description:

'Lexical meaning' is of particular relevance in argumentation, as it is the
context as a whole that activates interpretation processes: encoded meaning can
be considered as a tool for arriving at the intended (i.e. communicated)
meaning. From this communicative-pragmatic point of view, great attention must
be paid to the implicit communicated meaning (Carston 2002), which can be
presupposed (Greco 2003) or inferred. Textualizing procedures of argumentative
moves have received considerable attention in linguistic research oriented
towards discourse analysis (Rigotti 2005; Rocci 2005; Stati 2002 e 1990). These
studies fall within so-called Argumentation Theory (van Eemeren & Grootendorst
2004; Walton 1996; Plantin 1999), which operates from an interdisciplinary
perspective, where linguists interact with philosophers and communication

The I.A.D.A. Workshop organized by the Department of Foreign Languages and
Literatures at the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan aims to
investigate lexical meaning, in the light of inferential processes implied in
the linear structure of dialogue. The Workshop will also focus on specific
themes in three panels, coordinated by Marcello Soffritti, Margherita Ulrych and
Christian Plantin. From a translational perspective and with reference to German
and English, two panels will address encoded meaning and the encoded
meaning/effective meaning interface in argumentation; while the third will
investigate the emotive dimension of argumentative dialogues.
