Call for papers

As part of the Annual Meeting of the German Linguistic Society
(Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Sprachwissenschaft), to be held in Halle
(Saale), Germany, March 4/6 1988, there will be a workshop
(Arbeitsgruppe) on the following topic:

The Linguistic Analysis of Intercultural Communication

In the last thirty years research on intercultural communication has
attracted increasing scientific attention not only as a result of
social developments but also due to the growing interdisciplinary
cooperation between different disciplines such as cultural
anthropology, ethnology, sociology, and linguistics (c.f. Ehlich
	A central topic of the linguistic analysis of intercultural
communication is determined by the experience that the use of a common
language system does not guarantee mutual understanding. Therefore,
the theoretical conception of intercultural communication (either in
everyday or in institutional situations) is characterized by
misunderstandings (Gumperz).
	Analyses of the mediation of intercultural competences show
that both contrastive and interactive investigations into
intercultural communication are important in order to answer the
questions on the contextualizations of speech actions and on their
universal or culture specific characteristics. Only recently, has the
innovative potential of intercultural communication started to attract
particular attention (c.f. Koole & ten Thije 1994). It has become
clear that research into intercultural communication should take an
interdisciplinary perspective and requires reflection on traditional
linguistic categories of linguistic description in order to see which
new discursive forms are facilitated by intercultural communication.
	The specific question to be adressed in this workshop is
whether the linguistic involvement in intercultural research has
resulted in the extension and enhancement of new linguistic categories
and research methods. Reflexion on this issue should focus on topics
like procedures of assertaining understanding (Verstdndnissicherung)
(c.f. metacommunication), pragmatic universals (c.f. politeness),
contrastive analyses of speech actions and texts, linguistic forms of
perspectivity or culture comparison.

abstract should be sent (preferably by e-mail to the organizer (adress
