The 9th International Conference on Intercultural Pragmatics and Communication (INPRA) will be held 12-14 June 2020 at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. The main aim of INPRA is to bring together researchers from around the world who have diverse scientific backgrounds but share the same field of interest – pragmatics, broadly understood as a cognitive, philosophical, social, and intercultural perspective on language and communication.
Abstracts (max. 300 words) are invited for papers on any topic relevant to the fields of pragmatics and intercultural communication, including but not limited to:
(i) Pragmatics theories: neo-Gricean approaches, relevance theory, theory of mind, meaning, role of context, semantics-pragmatics interface, explicature, implicature, grammaticalisation, speech act theory, presuppositions, (im)politeness, etc.
(ii) Intercultural, cross-cultural and societal aspects of pragmatics: research involving more than one language and culture or varieties of one language, lingua franca, computer mediated communication, bilinguals’ and heritage speakers’ language use, intercultural misunderstandings, effect of dual language and multilingual systems on the development and use of pragmatic skills, language of aggression and conflict, etc.
(iii) Applications: usage and corpus-based approaches, pragmatic competence, teachability and learnability of pragmatic skills, pragmatic variations within one language and across languages, developmental pragmatics, etc.
