Workshop: Questioning Speech Acts

Thursday, 14. September 2017
– Saturday, 16. September 2017


Project P5 of FOR2111 & Emmy Noether Group "What is it to ask a question?"

Christine Gunlogson (University of Rochester), Joe Buffington (Albany Law School), Magdalena Kaufmann (University of Conneticut)

In the last decade or so, there has been a renewed interest in speech acts within formal semantics and pragmatics, spurred by work on topics like clause typing, explicit performatives and discourse particles on the one hand, and the development of new formal models for the study of pragmatics and discourse on the other. The workshop Questioning Speech Acts aims to bring together researchers from various disciplines investigating speech acts and related notions.

The workshop is jointly organized by Project P5 of FOR2111 - Questions at the Interfaces and the Emmy Noether Group What is it to ask a question?, directed by Sven Lauer (Fellow/Dept. of Linguistics).

Unless you present at the workshop, please register by September 7, 2017 if you are planning to attend.
