Meeting Description:

Complexities of Meaning in Text
Halliday's semantically driven model of language description provides an
excellent tool for examining meanings at the level beyond the clause and is rich
enough to account for various meaning relations in discourse. However, many of
the knotty problems of meaning making emerge clearly only when one is trying to
put the concepts into production.

Call for Papers

Invited are papers on the following topics:
- Systemic Functional Linguistic theory
- Appraisal theory
- Coherence and cohesion
- Genre and intertextuality
- Multimodal texts - multimodality
- Critical discourse analysis
- Human language production and/or understanding
- Computational linguistics
- The practical analysis of the clause, text/discourse.

Plenary Speakers:
James Martin (University of Sydney)
Christopher Taylor (University of Trieste)
Eija Ventola (University of Helsinki)

We invite submission of abstracts of papers for presentation at the conference.
Papers directly relevant to the conference theme will be preferred but we would
also like to encourage submissions which link SFL with related linguistic
theories where meaning also plays an important role (for example, other
functional approaches, psycholinguistics, cognitive linguistics, etc.). Papers
focusing on other core concepts in SFL will also be accepted.

Research on languages other than English is strongly encouraged. We also welcome
submissions representing work in progress.
Presentations will be 20 minutes long plus 10 minutes for questions.

Workshops: We will be able to hold a small number of 1 and a half hour
workshops. Workshops will need to be directly relevant to the theme. Please
send a description of the workshop.

For each submission, please provide:
- For each author: name, title, affiliation
- Title of paper
- Abstract (not more than 250 words).
- The strand or strands appropriate for your submission (if 'other', please specify)
- State whether the submission is for a paper or workshop presentation.

Please send abstracts by email to e-mail: esflcw2010pef.upr.si

Closing date: 1st February 2010
