Call for papers
INAR 7 welcomes discussion on all forms of language and communicative practices associated with situations in which interlocutors are addressed. Relevant issues include, but are not limited to, pronominal address forms, imperative verb forms, honorifics, kinship terms, titles, and terms of endearment and abuse. Related phenomena such as salutations, address forms used in generic meaning, and address-derived discourse markers constitute wider fields of interest. Contrastive studies which compare address terms in two or more languages are given special attention, and in particular studies which focus on the perception and processing of address terms.
We invite abstracts on all aspects of address and address research for 20-minute oral presentations followed by 10 minutes of discussion. There will be no parallel sessions. Studies from various fields will be considered, including syntax, semantics, pragmatics, historical linguistics, politeness studies, sociolinguistics, language contact, communication, and translation.
Abstracts should be written in Times New Roman 12pt font with a line spacing of 1.15 and should not exceed one A4 page with a 2.5 cm margin on all sides. A second page can be used for references and figures. Anonymized abstracts should be submitted via the form below in standard Word or PDF format. Submissions can be uploaded until 26 February 2023; notifications of acceptance will be sent in the first week of April. Information about hotel accommodation and other arrangements will follow in due course.
