Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis; Pragmatics
Call Deadline: 15-Apr-2011
The FunDETT (Functions of Discourse: Evaluation in Text Types) research group is organizing this international workshop, whose main aim is to bring together scholars who will explore and analyze the evaluative function of language. The workshop is based on the premise that the analysis of discourse-pragmatics functions is vital for finding meaning in any kind of text, and we focus on the evaluative function of language and on how this function is realized at different linguistic levels, different text types and different cultures.
Call for Papers:
We shall thus welcome contributions on the following topics:
-Theoretical and empirical approaches to evaluation
-Evaluation in different text types (oral, written, computer mediated, literary or nonliterary discourse)
-Evaluation manifested through the different linguistic levels (phonological, syntactic, etc.)
-Gender and evaluation
-Evaluation across cultures
-The relationship between verbal irony and evaluation
-Different theoretical viewpoints on evaluation: Appraisal Theory, Functionalism, (im)politeness Theory, Stance, etc.
-Grammaticalization of the phenomenon of evaluation in language
-Pragmatic meaning in contrast with semantic meaning, as a rich source for the identification of evaluative polarity
-Corpus-based approaches to evaluation in different languages and cultures
-The expression of evaluation on the web (social networks, e-mail, websites, etc.)
-Any other aspect of the evaluative function of language
Abstracts (not exceeding 350 words -excluding the references) should be sent as an e-mail attachment to the conference organizers at intevalflog.uned.es before April 15, 2011.
