Aspect and performativity in Slavic languages (and beyond)
In this special issue of LPP, we would like to contrastively explore the
relation between formal grammatical features, such as tense, aspect,
Aktionsart, mood, voice, and (potential) performativity in linguistic
We would like to focus on Slavic languages, whose morphological potential
have not been widely documented with regard to the
syntax-semantics-pragmatics interface. We believe that contrasting rich and
sometimes contradictory Slavic data (see H. Galton's The Main Functions of
the Slavic Verbal Aspect and S.M. Dickey's Parameters of Slavic Aspect),
with related data from other language families can shed new light on the
still mysterious and elusive concept of performative value.
We especially invite contributions which focus on the relation between
morpho-syntactic form and its (possible) performative effect, where
performativity is understood as linguistic action, an instance of 'doing
something rather than merely saying', to use J.L. Austin's words, or
alternatively, we could quote Stanislav Škrabec, a 19th-century Slovene
linguist, 'As long as we are only promising (imperfective), we have not
promised anything yet, and if we are not (doing anything) but promising
(imperfective), we cannot take anything as having been promised.'
Full texts and proposals in the form of abstracts should be sent to both
Iwona Plisiecka (iw.plisieckagmail.com), University of Lodz, Poland
Igor Ž. Žagar (igor.zzagargmail.com), Educational Research Institute &
University of Maribor, Slovenia.
This call is part of a bigger project whose aim is a separate volume
devoted to aspect and performativity in Slavic and other Indo-European
languages, which is to be published with John Benjamins' Pragmatics &
Beyond New Series.
Deadline for proposals: 15. August 2010
Deadline for submissions: 31. December 2010
