1st International Pragmatics Conference of the Americas and the 5th International Conference on Intercultural Pragmatics
October 19-21, 2012, University of North Carolina, Charlotte, USA
The goal of the joint conference is to promote both theoretical and applied research in pragmatics, and bring together scholars who are interested in different subfields of pragmatics (philosophical, linguistic, cognitive, social, intercultural, interlanguage, etc.). Three parallel sessions will be held on the following topics:
(i) Pragmatics theories: neo-Gricean approaches, relevance theory, theory of mind, meaning, role of context, semantics-pragmatics interface, explicature, implicature, speech act theory, presuppositions, im/politeness, experimental pragmatics, etc.
(ii) Intercultural and cross-cultural aspects of pragmatics: research involving more than one language and culture or varieties of one language, lingua franca, bilinguals' language use, intercultural misunderstandings, effect of dual language and multilingual systems on the development and use of pragmatic skills, etc.
(iii) Applications: usage and corpus-based approaches, pragmatic competence, discourse, teachability and learnability of pragmatic skills, pragmatic variations within one language and across languages, developmental pragmatics, etc.
