Experimental Pragmatics: Exploring the Cognitive Basis of Conversation

Experimental pragmatics brings together researchers from linguistics, philosophy, psychology and neuropsychology who are interested in the cognitive basis of the domain of speech acts, implicature and speaker meaning.


Experimental Pragmatics: Exploring the Cognitive Basis of Conversation

April 14-16 2005

Experimental pragmatics brings together researchers from linguistics, philosophy, psychology and neuropsychology who are interested in the cognitive basis of the domain of speech acts, implicature and speaker meaning. The field of experimental pragmatics is new. Most research in the area has been collaborative between experimentalists and linguists or philosophers. The benefits from such collaborations can and do flow to both sides.

This is the third in a series of workshops and conferences whose aims are to provide a platform for the dissemination of recent results in the field and also to draw in researchers from either the empirical or the analytical disciplines in order that new ideas may be exchanged and new alliances may be forged.

Invited Speakers:

Gennaro Chierchia – University of Milan-Bicocca
Stephen Crain – University of Maryland
Bart Geurts – University of Nijmegen
Julien Musolino – Indiana University
Ira Noveck - Institut des Sciences Cognitives, Lyon
Anna Papafragou – University of Delaware
Martin Pickering – University of Edinburgh
Uli Sauerland – Zentrum für allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS), Berlin
Michael Tanenhaus – University of Rochester

Call for Submitted Papers:

In addition to the invited papers, there will be presentations of 12 submitted papers. Submitted papers will be 35 minutes long (with 10 minutes for discussion).
We invite researchers interested in the field of experimental pragmatics to submit an abstract.
Although the themes of the conference are loosely ‘processing/architectures’ and ‘development/acquisition’, we will consider papers on other themes.
Abstracts should be no more than two pages long (including references, minimum 2.54cm margins, 12 point font). Please only submit abstracts in .pdf, .ps or Word formats.

Deadline for Submission of Abstracts: 31 January 2005
Notification of Acceptance: 28 February 2005

Abstracts will be reviewed by a committee which includes the invited speakers

Please send abstracts and all inquiries to: Napoleon Katsos
