Linguistic Field(s): Pragmatics

Meeting Description:

The Chair of German as a Foreign / Second Language (TU Chemnitz, Germany) is proud to announce the Fourteenth International Conference of “Functional Pragmatics”. The theory of “Functional Pragmatics” understands language as a societally elaborated complex form-function-nexus as a basis for the reconstruction of the functionality of linguistic devices as well as the deep structures of linguistic interaction. Such reconstruction requires to differentiate, at an analytical level, between three instances of reality, namely linguistic reality (p), the mental realities of speaker and hearer (ΠS and ΠH), and extralinguistic reality (P).
The conference focuses the role of this triad on the basis of authentic empirical evidence from, among other things, plurilingual interaction, knowledge transfer in institutions as well as translating and interpreting.

Program Information:

The Fourteenth International Conference of the “Functional Pragmatics” will take place on 23 September 2021 - 25 September 2021, and will be held ONLINE. Registration is free. Conference language is German, contributions in English are also acceptable.
