This conference is organised by the GREG group ('Groupe de Réflexion sur les
Grammaires'), part of the CREA (EA 370) research centre of the University Paris
Ouest-Nanterre. The GREG is a research group in linguistics particularly
focusing on meaning production in a micro- and macro-linguistic perspective.
The topic of this conference is :
'Mapping Parameters of Meaning? Filters, Filtering and Production'
The production of meaning will be addressed mainly through 'filters' (such as
context, first language, pragmatics, interaction between signifiers), and will
be considered as a transitional process (filtering), giving rise to specific
meanings, at different levels of accessibility and which are more or less
Call for Papers
The conference will focus on the following interfaces:
- the interface between syntax/semantics/pragmatics and also, more generally,
'contact areas' or 'filtering-zones':
- inter languages or dialects (first language/second language, diglossia,
- inter competences (knowledge/know-how; language/meta-language, etc.)
- the issue of mobile meaning and semantic choice (ambiguity, ambivalence,
In this way, different linguistic phenomena can be considered to be either in
competition with one another, or working together, and therefore analyzed as
forming a necessary or problematic link in the mapping of meaning.
The aim of this conference is not only to describe the relations existing
between different language systems and the different filters of meaning, but
also to attempt to highlight paradigms of interaction, and to explain the
filtering process itself, together with its semantic and pragmatic implications.
The languages of the conference are French and English.
