Pragmatics (EPICS IV - Encuentros de Pragmática Intercultural, Cognitiva y

The Symposium will serve as a forum where applied linguists and practitioners of
Pragmatics and Discourse Analysis can meet, share experiences, discuss common
problems, and present papers on their latest research in these fields. EPICS IV
also wishes to create awareness among graduating students of the growing
interest in this area of linguistic expertise.
