Developments in Socio-Pragmatics
Call for Papers
The upcoming issue of LPP aims at presenting and discussing multiple approaches to cross-cultural communication. We welcome contributions on a wide range of subjects, such as e.g. sociolinguistic studies on biculturalism and migration, child and adult education of migrants and members of linguistic minorities, business communication, new media, as well as the communication aspect of political relations and cultural exchange. We welcome contributions on the role of pragmalinguistic differences and different conventions of speech and text genres in encounters between members of different cultures, as well as on the effects of power relations upon the forms of intercultural discourse.
Today to an even larger extent than in the past centuries, communication frequently takes place between individuals and institutions representing different national and cultural backgrounds. This has resulted in a vast body of theoretical discussions on the relation between language, culture and discourse as well as in the emergence of empirical research on intercultural encounters.
Social change, international political campaigning, linguistic minorities, intercultural pedagogy, advertising, management, corporate internal communication, tourism, youth culture and public media discourse. Contributions from empirical studies, as well as proposals related to the acquisition and teaching of cross-cultural competence are most welcome.
Deadline: 15 February

Lodz Papers in Pragmatics (LPP) is an international journal committed to publishing excellent research in the area of pragmatics and related disciplines focused on human communication. LPP editors understand linguistic pragmatics as research area focused on the contextual aspects of meaning, which invites interdisciplinary perspective on linguistic data and intersects traditional modules, such as phonetics, phonology, syntax, or text linguistics and discourse analysis. LPP publishes original peer-reviewed papers and review articles. It aims to provide a comprehensive perspective on today’s pragmatics, integrating diverse research from all over the world and assisting in further definition of the field.
Affiliated with University of Lodz, at the crossroads between Eastern and Western Europe, the Slavic and the Anglo-Saxon tradition, LPP is uniquely suited to not only represent current research in linguistic pragmatics, but also provoke confrontation and provide a forum for discussion for researchers rooted in different schools, distant both in theory and geographic space, from Europe and beyond.
