Meeting Description:

CLIE-2016 aims at investigating the intrinsic relationship between language and culture and the multifariousness of their interrelatedness, in particular from a pragma-semantic approach. The two-way interdependence and synergies between language and culture are determinants of the extent to which culture is included in meaning creation, influencing the speakers' perceptions of culture as reflected in our exchanges about the world surrounding us. By delving into the semantics of a language we may reach an understanding of cultural meanings. Along the same lines, this could reveal the implicit suppositions which are connected to them and which are implicitly understood and shared by the community members, but not accessible to outsiders.

Conference topics:
- Discourse Analysis, Rhetoric and Pragmatics;
- Second Language Acquisition;
- Semantics and Stylistics;
- Contrastive Linguistics;
- Foreign/Second Language Teaching and Teacher Education;
- Sociolinguistics;
- Translating, Interpreting and Mediation;
- Business Communication;
- Intercultural Communication.

Other topics may include more specialised issues:
- the importance of languages in integrating an international and intercultural dimension in the design and content of university curricula, as well as in the teaching/learning processes;
- the role and status of translation and the translator/transcommunicator in nowadays globalised and technologised societies and cultures;
- the influence of language contact on shaping social, political, economic and cultural discourses and identities, etc.
