- cognitive processing: utterance production and comprehension
- different construals of meaning
- figurative meanings
- rendering meanings in translation and interpreting

Abstracts of up to 400 words should be sent to Maria Jodlowiec: by 10 June 2016. Please, include the full name, affiliation and the email address of the author, explicitly indicating “Poster” for a poster presentation.
