Meeting Description:

The objective of the symposium is to bring together linguists and doctoral
students who are working on Hungarian, Finnish, Estonian and other Uralic
languages and who are interested in the relation between pragmatic and
grammatical aspects of language, i.e. in the way extra-linguistic situations
affect language as a set of systems and how this relation between grammar
and context can be seen in actual language use.

We invite papers on the above theme from a synchronic or a diachronic
perspective. You can approach the theme, e.g., from the point of view of
text linguistics, conversation analysis, translation studies, language learning
and teaching, or second/foreign language use. Papers can also be
submitted on aspects of grammar research, variation studies, contact
linguistics, anthropological linguistics etc.

The invited speakers at the symposium are Professor Tuomas Huumo of the
University of Tartu and Professor Csaba Pléh of the Budapest University of
Technology and Economics. The 45-minute plenary papers are given in
English. In addition to the plenary papers, the symposium consists of the
section papers given by the participants (20 min + 10 min for discussion).
The main languages of the symposium are Hungarian, Finnish and English.
Section papers can also be given in Estonian, German and Russian.

Please send your registration and intended paper abstracts by 31.10.2010,
at the latest, via e-mail to the address context[at]caesar.elte.hu. Your
registration should include the following information as part of the e-mail
message: the participant's name, department and university, e-mail
address, mail address, telephone number, the title of the intended paper.
The anonymous abstracts (max. 500 words) should be sent as attachments
to the same e-mail both in MS-Word and in PDF-formats. Abstracts should
be written in English and they should end with information on the actual
language of the intended paper. Abstracts of accepted papers will be
published on the website for the symposium
(http://finnugor.elte.hu/?q=grammatica_contextus) 1.12.2010 at the latest.

The registration fee is 50 euros; however, it is 30 euros for citizens of
member states that joined the EU in or after 2004, Russian citizens and for
under- and postgraduate students. The registration fee should be paid in
cash (either in euros or in Hungarian forints) at the Registration Desk
before the start of the symposium.

Further information about the plenary papers, the symposium programme
and accommodation will be sent in the second circular in January 2011.
