FINAL CFP: Szklarska Poreba Workshop on the Roots of Pragmasemantics, 11-15 Mar 2011

"Ambiguity in Language and the Process of Disambiguation", in Szklarska Poreba (Poland)


Linguists, logicians and philosophers are invited to join the twelfth 
conference *on the Roots of Pragmasemantics*. The focus of this year's 
convention is "ambiguity in language and the process of disambiguation". 
Thus, we are interested particularly in how interpretation of ambiguous 
sentences is determined and hence how efficiently communication is 
obtained. Experimental as well as theoretical approaches to the problem 
are welcome. We especially invite submissions related to this topic, but 
also welcome contributions relevant to any of the more classical subjects 
of this workshop series. We in particular encourage the presentation of 
innovative ideas, even if still in need of later refinement.

We invite anonymous submission of abstracts of no longer than 500 words in 
PDF, to be sent to

Especially relevant topics include:

* Lexical & syntactical ambiguity
* Cognitive aspects of disambiguation in language
* Language comprehension and language production
* The role of disambiguation in reasoning
* Experimental studies on ambiguity and disambiguation in language

*Invited Speakers:*

Justyna Grudzi?ska
Katrin Schulz
Jacques Jayez
Bernhard Schrder

Deadline for submissions: Friday, *21. 01. 2011*
Notification of acceptance: 11.02.2011
Workshop: March 11th to 15th.
Location: Szklarska Por?ba, Poland
