Meeting Description:

The special theme of this edition of the International Pragmatics Conferences is 'Language and Adaptability'. The notion of adaptability is meant to capture a perspective on pragmatics that highlights language as a variable and dynamic resource for human communicative behavior. It covers a focus on the dynamic interplay between structural choices and context in the everyday practice of interactional language use, conversational or otherwise, private or public, informal or institutional. It also addresses the societal functioning of everyday language use in the wider context of linguistic diversity and change.

Venue: Buildings K and R of the City Campus (Stadscampus) of the University of Antwerp, Belgium.
