Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Semantics; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Meeting Description:

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 restrictive. 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, bilingualism, etc.)
- Inter competences (knowledge/know-how; language/meta-language, etc.)
- The issue of mobile meaning and semantic choice (ambiguity, ambivalence, inference, implicitness).

In this way, different linguistic phenomena can be considered to be either in competition with one another, or working together, and therefore analysed as forming a necessary or problematic link in the mapping of meaning. 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 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.
