The research team SeSyLiA (Semantics and Syntax - Language In Action), part of PRISMES (EA 4398), in conjunction with the ED 514, is pleased to host the sixth edition of SNUGLS which will be held in Paris at the Institut du Monde Anglophone, 5 rue de l?Ecole de M'edecine, on May 22nd, 2015. The goal of the conference is to bring together junior researchers and give them an opportunity to practice their presentation skills in English and discuss their work with specialists in their field. This year, we are delighted to welcome Senior Lecturer Camille Debras from Universit'e Paris Ouest Nanterre La D'efense (Paris X) as our keynote speaker.

Graduate students (i.e. second-year Master and Ph.D. students) as well as first-year post-docs are encouraged to apply. The conference language is English and each presentation will be allotted a 20-minute slot followed by 10 minutes for discussion.

Topics relevant to the conference encompass all fields of linguistics focusing on the English language, including, but not restricted to, first and second language acquisition, language teaching, sociolinguistics, pragmatics, discourse analysis, conversation analysis, corpus linguistics, lexicology and lexicography, translation and interpretation, and phonetics.

Different perspectives can be adopted (methods of data collection, multimodality, etc.). Contributions exploring the questions of ?affect?, ?stance? and ? intersubjectivity? or any other related subjects (dialogicity, expression of emotions, modality, etc.) will be greatly appreciated.

In order to help participants become more efficient communicators, two discussion sessions will be organized during the day to provide friendly feedback.
