Meeting Description:

INAR (International Network for Address Research) is a recently formed network, following the workshop on ‘Sociolinguistics and Grammar of Terms of Address’ held in Berlin in the early summer of 2013. The aim of the network is to describe address in as wide a number of languages as possible in order to arrive at an overarching model of address. It will do so by enhancing closer ties between members, all of them linguists who have been working on address for years.

This workshop is the first in a series that will take place once a year, organized by different network members around the globe. We wish to bring together practitioners in the field the specific workshop focuses on (e.g. diachrony, translation etc.) and researchers studying address in different languages and working in different frameworks (e.g. sociolinguistics, interactional studies, pragmatics and grammatical description).
