Pragmatics on the go:
Teaching and learning about pragmatics: principles, methods and practices

University of Padua, Italy
17-20 June 2013

Conference announcement
The Department of Linguistic and Literary Studies of the University of
Padua is organizing the conference “Pragmatics on the go – Teaching and
learning about pragmatics: principles, methods and practices” to be held
in Padua from 17 to 20 June 2013

Conference theme
Over the last 30 years, experts in pragmatics have convincingly pointed
out how pragmatic skills are not picked up intuitively by foreign or
second language learners, even after intensive exposure to and practice in
the language, and how the development of pragmatic competence strongly
benefits from explicit instruction and training. Yet, so far linguistic
pragmatics has not often been the explicit focus of attention in
foreign/second language curriculum planning and design.

This conference aims to bring together linguists and teachers active in
pragmatics and related disciplinary fields (e.g. sociolinguistics,
discourse analysis, conversation analysis, language education,
communication studies) to share experiences and discuss proposals
regarding approaches to the teaching and learning of linguistic pragmatics
in the context of second/foreign language education.

Provisional academic programme

• Invited speakers:
Eva Alcón Soler (University Jaume I, Spain)
Kathleen Bardovi-Harlig (University of Indiana)
Winnie Cheng (The Hong Kong Polytechnic University)

• Contributions:
The programme will consist of full papers, work-in-progress reports and
posters. Full papers will be 20 minutes long plus 10 minutes for questions
and discussion; work-in-progress reports will be 10 minutes long plus 5
minutes for questions and discussion. Posters will be presented in a
special session. Proposals for pre-conference workshops are also welcome.

• Languages of the conference:
English, French, Spanish, Italian and German. (However, all presenters
will be asked to prepare their PPT slides and/or handouts in English.)

Call for abstracts

• We invite the submission of abstracts addressing all aspects of the
teaching and learning of pragmatics. These include, but are by no means
limited to, the following topics:
- pragmatic competence in the native/dominant language: determining what
socio-pragmatic and pragmalinguistic skills, if any, to develop in
learners’ main/native language; using learners’ pragmatic competence in
their main language to develop competence in the second/foreign language -
students’ needs analysis: identifying students’ own learning goals in the
second/foreign language;
- teachers’ needs analysis: locating, selecting, adapting and sharing
resources; networking among linguists and language teachers
- teacher training: empowering language teachers to acquire the competence
necessary to teach about linguistic pragmatics
- syllabus design: discussing the topics in theoretical pragmatics, and
the competences and skills in language use, which should become part of a
standard foreign/second language curriculum
- approaches to teaching pragmatics: comparing methods for teaching and
learning pragmatics
- pragmatics and language proficiency: selecting the types of pragmatic
knowledge, competence and skills that are desirable for different levels
of language proficiency
- testing of pragmatics: methods in the qualitative and quantitative
assessment of learners’ pragmatic competence
- pragmatics for linguists vs. language teachers/learners: bridging the
gap between scholars and language teachers: making theoretical knowledge
of pragmatics directly relevant to language teaching and learning, and
letting language teachers/learners’ needs and goals inform pragmaticians’
- pragmatics and other branches of linguistics: identifying the
communicative functions performed through the prosodic, morphological,
syntactic resources of the foreign/second language
- pragmatics for conversation: approaches to raising awareness of the
initiating and reacting communicative strategies of spoken interaction -
pragmatic competence in genre use: approaches to raising awareness of the
socio-pragmatic and pragmalinguistic features of specific genres across
different languages
- pragmatics and grammar: identifying the grammatical topics necessary to
develop linguistic, pragmalinguistic and sociopragmatic competences -
pragmatics for specific purposes: identifying and developing the pragmatic
skills required by specific professions (e.g. translators) - pragmatics
databases: compiling, designing and tagging corpora for research on and/or
the teaching of pragmatics
