Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science; Pragmatics; Semantics

Meeting Description:

The planned international conference on pragmatics/semantics-interface is intended to document pragmatic theorizing in the light of the present debates on the one hand and to reveal the developing potential of future research strategies in pragmatics on the other. It centers on the following questions: What does it mean that something has been said? Is there literal meaning and how does it constitute utterance meaning? What kind of pragmatic inference is relevant for utterance understanding on different levels of utterance interpretation? Do we need default-inferences in order to catch meaning-aspects of utterances 'beyond the words', these inferences being cancelled in case of purely literal meaning? How is pragmatic information processed (relation between procedural effort and the respective communicative effect of the utterance)? What is the pragmatic foundation of grammatical relations?
