English Language and Literature at the Faculty of Education of Masaryk
University.

The Fourth Brno Conference focuses on interpretation of meaning in
spoken and written discourse. While the thematic scope of the contributions
is expected to be very wide, we particularly welcome topics exploring aspect
of discourse coherence, cohesion relations, pragmatic strategies in the
interpretation of discourse, dialogic aspects of written and spoken
interaction, genre-specific strategies for the negotiation of meaning in
spoken and written discourse.

There will be a conference fee of CZK 1000 (€ 40) and participants must pay
their own travel and accommodation costs. The conference fee includes
conference materials, including a book of abstracts, a copy of the
Conference monograph, coffee-break refreshments and the Conference
dinner on 16th September.

Accommodation will be arranged, if required. We can provide
accommodation for any of the nights 15-16, 16-17 and 17-18 September at
the university hotel. Unfortunately, since the dates of our Conference
coincide with a big fair in Brno, there has been a change in the price of
accommodation. The price of a double room including breakfast is CZK
1180; when occupied by a single person the price of the double room is
CZK 890. We can also book rooms at the Continental hotel in the centre of
the city where the prices are: for the night 15-16 Sept., a double room
including breakfast - CZK 2900 and a single room including breakfast - CZK
2760; for the rest of the nights, the prices are: a double room including
breakfast - CZK 1500 and a single room including breakfast - CZK 1050.
