Dear Colleagues,

We are proposing a panel on the theme of ''Lexical Contrast in Discourse'' for
the International Pragmatics Conference in Göteborg, Sweden in July 2007, and
are thus interested in hearing from other people working on related topics who
might be interested in presenting at this panel. The organisers of the panel
have recently been researching the use of antonyms in discourse (in English and
Swedish), but we define 'lexical contrast' broadly and would be interested in
hearing about research related to:

- functions of antonyms/lexical opposition in discourse
- the contexts/constructions that coerce opposite readings in word
pairs(e.g. synonyms, hyponyms, incompatibles)
- discourse properties of using morphological antonyms vs. lexical
antonyms vs. syntactic negation
- cross-linguistic/cross-cultural studies
- methodological/technological innovations in studying contrast in

If interested, please send a brief summary of the work you would want to present
in such a panel ann.verhaertipra.be by the end of June 2006.
