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".

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
