8th Brno Conference on Linguistics Studies in English: 2019 Functional Plurality of Language in Contextualised Discourse 

The Department of English Language and Literature, Faculty of Education, Masaryk University, Brno, Czech Republic announces The Eighth Brno Conference on Linguistics Studies in English, which will be held in Brno on 12-13 September 2019. 

The Eighth Brno Conference will focus on two core aspects in the study of discourse that seem to have recently attracted attention of researchers – the plurality of functions language may perform by a wide range of linguistic means and the role of context in the choice of specific functions and their linguistic realisations. 

We hope to examine the bridges that are being built over the time span between the traditional Jakobsonian concept of language functions, the well-established Hallidayan functional-systemic approach to language, and the modern specialised discourses defined as the specialist use of language in contexts typical of a specialised discourse community “stretching across the academic, the professional, the technical and the occupational areas of knowledge and practice” (Gotti 2008: 24). 

We particularly welcome papers and posters on the following topics: 

- characteristic features of specialised discourse 
- new genres of specialised discourse 
- pragmatics of specialised discourse 
- diachronic changes in specialised discourses 
- variation across genres and cultures 
- academic discourse 
- media discourse 
- learner discourse 
- English as a lingua franca
