2nd Call For Papers

Extended deadline: May 15th, 2010

Conference theme: Grammatical analysis and the discovery of meaning

Papers are invited which propose language-specific analyses of natural
discourse data within any framework in which languages are viewed as
semiotic systems. Particularly encouraged are submissions that advance
semantic hypotheses to account for the distribution of linguistic form.
The Columbia School is a group of linguists developing the theoretical
framework originally established by the late William Diver. Language is seen
as a symbolic tool whose structure is shaped both by its communicative
function and by the characteristics of its human users. Grammatical
analyses account for the distribution of linguistic forms as an interaction
between linguistic meaning and pragmatic and functional factors such as
inference, ease of processing, and iconicity. Phonological analyses explain
the syntagmatic and paradigmatic distribution of phonological units within
signals, also drawing on both communicative function and human
physiological and psychological characteristics.

Abstracts should be sent as an email attachment to jdavisccny.cuny.edu,
following these guidelines:

-The abstract, containing only the title of the paper and the text of the
