The special theme of this edition of the International Pragmatics Conferences is Language and adaptability.

Pragmatics studies language as a variable and dynamic resource for human communicative behavior. The notion of adaptability is meant to capture this perspective. As a special theme for this conference, it may be used to highlight two dimensions of language use and pragmatic research:
1.      The dynamic interplay between structural choices and context in the everyday practice of interactional language use, conversational or otherwise, private or public, informal or institutional.
2.      The societal functioning of everyday language use in the wider context of linguistic diversity and change.
Both dimensions may be addressed at the same time:,societal multilingualism may be studied as a resource for structural choices in face-to-face interactional contexts. They may be approached developmentally, diachronically, neuro/psychologically, or even in evolutionary terms. Finally, how is the practice of linguistic pragmatics itself affected by changes in available research tools and technologies?

The International Conference on Evidentiality and Modality in European Languages 2014 (EMEL’14) is organised by the Department of English Philology I (English Language and Linguistics) of the Complutense University of Madrid and the research project EUROEVIDMOD (FFI2011-23181).

- Epistemicity: relation between evidentiality and epistemic modality
- Cross-linguistic and typological studies on evidentiality
- Evidential lexical units and constructions and their relation to evidential grammatical markers
- Types of evidentiality: Direct vs. Indirect
- Reported speech and reportative evidentiality
- Epistemic stance and inter/subjectivity in discourse
- Interactional approaches to evidentiality and/or epistemic modality
- Corpus-based studies on evidentiality and/or epistemic modality

UCCTS is a biennial international conference which was launched by Richard Xiao in 2008 to provide an international forum for the exploration of the theoretical and practical issues pertaining to the creation and use of corpora in contrastive and translation studies. The conference is hosted by the UCREL research centre, which brings together the Department of Linguistics and English Language with the School of Computing and Communications at Lancaster.

The aim of the workshop is twofold: To bring together descriptions of specific constructions used as ECCs and theoretical perspectives on how ECCs can be accounted for in a linguistic model. The assumption is that both theoretical and descriptive approaches will benefit from each other and are necessary for deepening our understanding of ECCs.

Specific topics
- Formal properties of (specific) ECCs: their external and internal syntax, position in the host construction, prosodic realisation
- Functional properties and use of (specific) ECCs in language corpora
- The link of ECCs to their host construction and their interaction with the level of sentence grammar
- Criteria for determining whether a linguistic unit can be identified as extra-clausal
- Distinction of different subtypes
- Historical genesis and possible developmental pathways of ECCs
- Analysis and representation in linguistic models
