CALL FOR PAPERS 2ND WORKSHOP ON INTEGRATING APPROACHES TO SOCIAL MEANING ESSLLI 2019, RIGA AUGUST 12-16, 2019

Social meaning in pragmatics has long been studied by considering general mechanisms of language use to formalize notions such as politeness. In recent years, there has been a growing interest in the study of lexical elements whose semantics encode a component that directly bears on social meaning, for example slurs and honorifics. The question of which type of meaning these components belong to (e.g. conventional implicatures or presuppositions) and the way these components enter the compositional meaning of an utterance have also been studied. In addition, the last couple of years saw a surge of studies related to social meaning stemming from different fields. The workshop aims at bringing together researchers from these different horizons to open new directions of research in that domain. In particular, we hope to encourage contact between researchers working on social meaning from formal linguistic, sociolinguistic, computational, and philosophical perspectives. The workshop will be a platform for researchers with different backgrounds to discuss the meaning of expressions related to social aspects, including, but not limited to the following themes:

- social meaning in computational models - honorifics - insults, slurs and pejoratives - discourse particles - code switching - lexical choice - directness speech acts - politeness - identity construction - gender marking in discourse - argumentation - neurological profile of social meaning expressions

The workshop is part of the 31st European Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information (ESSLLI 2019), organized in Riga: http://esslli2019.folli.info/
