The goal is to explain the appearance of linguistic forms in spoken and written discourse by: their systemic semantic values, general psychological principles of goal-directed behavior, and socio-cultural conventions for the use and interpretation of linguistic forms. Phonetic facts contribute to accounting for the phonological shape of the forms themselves.

·EDICE: Desde la red de proyectos del Programa EDICE (Estudios del Discurso de Cortesía en Español), pretendemos divulgar nuestras investigaciones para y en lengua española; es decir, buscamos que los estudiosos del español tengan un lugar propio de intercambio y de difusión de sus ideas. Como siempre hemos manifestado, este objetivo se dirige muy especialmente a establecer contactos académicos entre los departamentos de español de Europa y los departamentos, institutos y centros de Lingüística de los países hispanohablantes. Creemos firmemente que una lengua, uno de los instrumentos comunicativos más básicos, es nutrida por aquella experiencia social que brinda un entorno particular, con determinadas características que le son propias. Así, una lengua (cualquiera de sus variedades) es, per se, un producto sociocultural. Al tratar el aspecto social del discurso, nuestro programa hace hincapié en las relaciones entre el Ego y el Alter, ya que éstas modelan cada una de nuestras interacciones comunicativas en sus niveles cognitivos, sociales y emocionales. Una de las teorías más relevantes de la cortesía, desarrollada por Penélope Brown y Stephen c. Levinson, ha abordado el campo de estudio estableciendo una correlación entre el concepto de imagen social y las actividades de cortesía. La teoría, a la vez que muy popular, ha sido objeto de críticas, especialmente en lo referente a la asignación del valor de universalidad de la idea de cortesía negativa, pues su aplicación parece estar reducida a contextos de habla propios de la comunidad cultural anglosajona. Creemos por ello que, como estudiosos de una lengua no anglófona, nos compete revisar la idoneidad de los instrumentos teóricos con los cuales nos manejamos para analizar nuestros materiales. Si bien la perspectiva del programa es la sociocultural, nuestro principal objetivo es lograr describir el fenómeno de la cortesía en sus diferentes variedades, promoviendo una permanente apertura hacia la discusión acerca de los límites y la interacción entre las ideas de universalidad y de particularidad sociocultural. Los objetivos fundamentales que se persiguen son: * Brindar a los investigadores asociados la posibilidad de establecer contactos con sus pares con el fin de conocer y hacer conocer su producción científica. * Promover el intercambio y la interacción entre departamentos, institutos y centros de lingüística en español de Europa y Latinoamérica. Por otra parte, los objetivos temáticos son: 1. Estudiar el comportamiento de cortesía en español. 2. Dar cuenta de los contextos socio-culturales que subyacen a tales comportamientos. 3. Llevar adelante estudios contrastivos entre las distintas variedades del español y otras lenguas/variedades europeas. 4. Contribuir al desarrollo de modelos teóricos alternativos que expliquen y describan al fenónemo de la cortesía. 5. Estimular el interés en el estudio del español como segunda lengua desde una perspectiva socio-cultural. 6. Mejorar las posibilidades de investigación y de enseñanza en las universidades participantes en el Programa Edice. 7. Mejorar la comprensión intercultural y prevenir comportamientos discriminatorios.
