Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics

Meeting Description:

Interest in pragmatic stylistics has increased in recent years, with relevance-theoretic work arguably constituting the most often applied 'post-Gricean' approach. In this one-day workshop, which is open to all, eight leading experts in relevance theory and stylistics discuss theoretical notions applicable in the analysis of texts, the application of relevance theory in stylistic analysis, and more general questions about relevance-theoretic pragmatic stylistics.

Thanks to the generous support of PALA (Poetics and Linguistics Association), Cambridge University Press, Middlesex University and the University of Westminster, this is a free event. The organisers are Andrew Caink (Westminster) and Billy Clark (Middlesex). The speakers are:

- Professor Diane Blakemore (University of Salford)

- Dr Andrew Caink (University of Westminster)

- Professor Robyn Carston (University College London)

- Dr Billy Clark (Middlesex University)

- Professor Nigel Fabb (University of Strathclyde)

- Professor Anne Furlong (University of Prince Edward Island)

- Dr Barbara MacMahon (Sheffield Hallam University)

- Professor Deirdre Wilson (University College London, Centre for the Study of Mind in Nature, Oslo)
