Via della Pescheria Vecchia
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
The Certainty or Uncertainty of a piece of information communicated by a speaker/writer plays a significant role both in building knowledge or beliefs in the interlocutor’s mind and in choosing the appropriate linguistic and non-linguistic behaviour during and after verbal interactions.
The Conference focuses on how speakers and writers express their individual degrees of Certainty or Uncertainty towards the piece of information they are giving hearers/readers during the communicative process, i.e. at the time when (= Now) and in the place where (= Here) communication occurs.
The Conference topic can be approached from different perspectives and in different - European and non European - languages.
