In addition to these thematic sessions, we welcome the submission of papers from scholars who study experimental pragmatics in connection with semantic approaches, language development, impaired communication, non-verbal and non-human communication, non literal language, negation, presupposition, reference, sentence processing,etc. Abstracts will be anonymously refereed by members of the program committee.
