Call for Papers
2nd Conference of the American Pragmatics Association
DEADLINE: 15 April 2014

The 2nd Conference of the American Pragmatics Association will take
place on October 17-19, 2014 at the University of California, Los
Angeles, in Los Angeles, California, USA.

The goal of the joint conference is to promote both theoretical and
applied research in pragmatics, and bring together scholars who are
interested in different subfields of pragmatics (philosophical,
linguistic, cognitive, social, intercultural, interlanguage, etc.).
Three main topics of the conference are as follows:

1. Pragmatics theories: neo-Gricean approaches, relevance theory,
theory of mind, meaning, role of context, grammaticalization,
semantics-pragmatics interface, explicature, implicature, speech act
theory, presuppositions, im/politeness, experimental pragmatics, etc.

2. Intercultural, cross-cultural and societal aspects of pragmatics:
research involving more than one language and culture or varieties of
one language, lingua franca, technologically mediated communication,
bilinguals’ and heritage speakers’ language use, intercultural
misunderstandings, effect of dual language and multilingual systems on
the development and use of pragmatic skills, language of aggression
and conflict, etc.

3. Applications: usage and corpus-based approaches, pragmatic
competence, teachability and learnability of pragmatic skills,
pragmatic variations within one language and across languages,
developmental pragmatics, etc.
