Meeting Description:

Pragmatics Meets Semantics Symposium
15-16 November 2013, Griffith University, Southbank, Brisbane

Semantics and pragmatics are seen as very closely related disciplines within linguistics and yet considerable gaps remain in their approaches to theorising as well as their analytical methodologies. The aim of this symposium is to not only consider ongoing research at the semantics-pragmatics interface, but to examine more broadly how research in pragmatics can inform semantics and how research in semantics can inform pragmatics.

Invited Speakers:

Professor Istvan Kecskes (State University of New York Albany)
Professor Keith Allan (Monash University)
Professor Cliff Goddard (Griffith University)

Organising Committee:

Michael Haugh
Susana Eisenchlas
Andrea Schalley
Ian WalkinshawNathaniel Mitchell
Wei-Lin Melody Chang
Lara Weinglass

Final Call for Papers:

We invite papers that orient to this theme directly, as well as research in pragmatics and semantics more generally.

Please submit 300 word abstracts by 16 August 2013 to Notification of acceptance will be sent by 6 September.
