2nd Postgraduate Workshop in Pragmatics

2nd Postgraduate Workshop in Pragmatics Department of English Language & Literature, March 4, 2024

In the recent years, the study of meaning and human communication has become more and more interdisciplinary, combining insights from linguistic pragmatics, cognitive science, discourse analysis, stylistics, psycho- and neurolinguistics, L1 and L2 acquisition, translation studies, and many more areas.

This one-day workshop aims to offer a venue to PhD students, as well as to early postdoctoral researchers, for presenting their work on any topic related to pragmatics. We invite a broad range of papers taking a linguistic, experimental and/or applied approach to the study of linguistic meaning.

Topics addressed in the workshop include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • metaphor and figurative speech;
  • non-propositional effects in utterance interpretation;
  • irony;
  • presupposition;
  • temporal reference;
  • modality;
  • discourse connectives;
  • L2 pragmatics.
