日本語用論学会

招待講演 (Plenary Talk)

 ニューヨーク州立大学名誉教授のイシュトヴァーン・ケチュケーシュ先生をお迎えして講演を開催いたします。この講演では、先生の近刊書(“English as a Lingua Franca: The Pragmatic Perspective”. Cambridge University Press, 2019年12月)から、リンガフランカとしての英語研究とグライス流語用論がいかなる相互作用をもたらすか、それによって得られる新たな視点や分析についてお話しいただきます。

 今日の日本においては、早期英語教育や大学入学の英語試験など、英語教育をめぐってさまざまな議論があります。ケチュケーシュ先生のお話から得られる示唆は、日本の英語教育に限らず、世界中の多文化共生のあり方を考える上で有意義なものとなるに違いありません。語用論はもちろん、英語教育、第二言語習得や、世界諸英語や言語接触などの社会言語学を専門とされる皆さんのご参加をお待ちしています。

Prof. Kecskes will give a talk on English as a Lingua Franca from a perspective of pragmatics. It will surely be of interest to a wide range of scholars across the fields of pragmatics, language contact, world Englishes, second language acquisition, and English as a second language.

演題 (Title)

“English as a Lingua Franca: The Pragmatic Perspective” 

要旨 (Abstract)

English as a Lingua Franca (ELF) is a term used to describe the use of English as a common language for communication between speakers whose first language is not English. Providing a unique and original perspective on this subject, this talk explain the language behaviour of ELF speakers, through the lens of Gricean pragmatics. It brings together the main viewpoints of the Gricean paradigm into ELF research, to discuss and better understand the nature of ELF interactions, as well as explaining how Gricean pragmatics can benefit from investigating and analyzing ELF. It presents intriguing ideas that put existing knowledge into a new perspective, such as interactional competence, intention, implicatures, the semantics-pragmatics interface, and modality. New terms and viewpoints such as language use mode, deliberate creativity, temporary extension of the system, emergent common ground and modality continuum are introduced into the ELF debate.

              In sum, this talk (1) changes and enhances the way we think about ELF and linguistic creativity; (2) explores what ELF can add to our existing knowledge about pragmatics; and (3) examines the semantics-pragmatics interface from a new perspective to clarify the relationship of linguistic sign and context in processing meaning.
