Procedural Meaning: Problems and Perspectives

Meeting URL: http://www.uned.es/proceduralmeaning

Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Pragmatics; Semantics

Meeting Description:

The distinction between conceptual and procedural content, which represents
a new view on other classic characterizations, is a major component of Relevance
Theory. According to Wilson and Sperber (1993:1), an utterance can be expected
"to encode two basic types of information: representational and computational,
or conceptual and procedural -that is, information about the representations to
be manipulated, and information about how to manipulate them."

Research on procedural content has already produced very noteworthy results in
many areas. However, there are still a number of questions that require further
clarification and more detailed analysis. The conference is intended to be a
meeting point for those working on procedural meaning from different points of
view and to identify new challenges that will determine the directions for
research in the next few years.
