PSJ 13 brings together all the researchers focussed on pragmatics working

interdisciplinary discussion where participants can discuss their work with
other people from both theoretical and applied backgrounds. Continuing an
established tradition, this year's meeting has attracted the submission of a
number of outstanding papers from leading universities in Japan and
abroad (US, UK, France, China, Chinene Taipei and other Asian countries).

We will have 28 oral presentations(8 spoken in English and 20 in

Western culture and the other is on Grammar in Social Interaction: Exploring
Possibilities of Conversation Analysis), one symposium(Exploring
Pragmatics from Functional Perspectives), and one prenary lecture.

We are particularly delighted to welcome Dr Malcom Coulthard of Aston
University as this year's plenary speaker. For more information on his
plenary talk, please see the following title and our website: The Official

We will also have a symposium done by one outstanding Japanese
functional linguist, and two conversational analysts, titled Exploring
Pragmatics from Functional Perspectives.
