E-mail this message to a friend

We're pleased to announce the official launch of the Discourse-Pragmatic Variation & Change (DiPVaC) research network site and mailing list.

The website can be accessed at http://www.dipvac.org. The site contains important information about the DiPVaC conference series and related activities/events; a list of scholars associated with the network (with details of their research foci); a link to the DiPVaC mailing list; etc.

The mailing list (dipvacjiscmail.ac.uk) was set up to facilitate scholarly exchanges specific to variation & change in discourse-pragmatics. Postings to the list may be about any of the following: queries about issues related to the (variationist) analysis of discourse-pragmatic features and responses to any such queries; invitations for research collaborations or contributions to publications in the field of discourse variation analysis; announcements of new publications, conferences or job openings relevant to discourse variationists.

Scholars interested in joining the network and/or mailing list should send the following information to dipvac.networkgmail.com:

Full name
Institutional affiliation
e-mail address
Home page
Research focus (in the area of discourse-pragmatic variation and change)
Languages worked/working on
Discourse-pragmatic variables investigated

To keep discussions focused and avoid replicating existing mailing lists, the scope of the DiPVaC research network is narrowly defined to "variation and change in the use of items and constructions often referred to as discourse markers or pragmatic particles whose primary functions are interpersonal and textual (e.g. _well, like, you know, comme, alors, doch, zwar, diciamo, dakedo_)."

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis
