Call Deadline: 15-Nov-2009
The planned international conference on pragmatics/semantics-interface is
intended to document pragmatic theorizing in the light of the present debates on
the one hand and to reveal the developing potential of future research
strategies in pragmatics on the other. It centers on the following questions:
What does it mean that something has been said? Is there literal meaning and how
does it constitute utterance meaning? What kind of pragmatic inference is
relevant for utterance understanding on different levels of utterance
interpretation? Do we need default-inferences in order to catch meaning-aspects
of utterances 'beyond the words', these inferences being cancelled in case of
purely literal meaning? How is pragmatic information processed (relation between
procedural effort and the respective communicative effect of the utterance)?
What is the pragmatic foundation of grammatical relations?
