Subject: Relevance Theory Workshop


 RELEVANCE THEORY WORKSHOP

8-10 September 1998, University of Luton, England

 Call for Papers and Registration

The Second Relevance Theory Workshop aims to bring together those

refereed and invited papers, including a keynote address by Professor 
Deirdre Wilson.

PAPERS
Contributions are invited for papers on the following topics:

(1) non-truth-conditional meaning;
(2) conceptual and procedural encoding;
(3) metarepresentation and interpretive use;
(4) the nature of and relation between the distinctions: 
 semantics/pragmatics and explicature/implicature;
(5) critiques of Relevance Theory;
(6) any other topic dealt with from a relevance theoretic perspective 
 or which has some bearing on Relevance Theory.

Papers on topics (1) - (5) will be presented in special topic panels 
and should be 20 minutes. Other papers will be allocated 40 minutes 
for presentation and discussion (either 20 + 20, or 30 +10).
Complete papers will be distributed in advance of the Workshop in 
order to increase the chances for useful feedback.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CONTRIBUTORS
In order to distribute proceedings in advance, full-length papers are 
invited rather than the more usual abstracts. Papers may take the 
form of pre-publication drafts, and should be a MAXIMUM of 6 pages in 
length, including references and a short (ten line) abstract. 

Manuscripts should be typed (12 point font), single-spaced, with 1 
inch (2.5 cm) margins on all sides, and NO page numbering. 

THREE copies of the manuscript should be submitted, one with the 
author's name and two anonymously. 

Please also include the following information on a seperate sheet:
name, address (postal and e-mail if available), affiliation, title of 
paper, the topic to which your paper relates (see (1) - (6) above), 
and a contact telephone number.

Manuscripts should be submitted to:

 Dr. Steve Nicolle,
