Linguistic Field(s): Semantics

Meeting Description:

The current international scientific conference Meaning in language and culture devoted to Jonas Jablonskis will be held on 23–24 September 2016 at the Faculty of Philology of Vilnius University. In comparison to previous conferences, it will focus on semantics, a least stressed J. Jablonskis' field.

The main goal of the 23rd international scientific conference Meaning in language and culture is to bring together international academic community interested in various semantic aspects of language and provide the opportunity for scholars representing different schools and approaches to exchange ideas, expertise and knowledge in any area of semantics.

The forthcoming Jonas Jablonskis’ conference will focus on various semantic issues in old writings, dialects and standard language. This year, next to traditional sections, a completely new field will be presented, namely meaning explored in culture. The conference will include four sections dealing with semantic issues on various levels:

- Section of Standard Language
- Section of Dialectology
- Section of Ethnolinguistics
- Section of Old Baltic Writings
