DGfS Summer School "Mapping Meaning" in Tübingen from August 15th - 26th, 2016

From August 15th - 26th the DGfS Summer School "Mapping Meaning" took place at the University of Tübingen.

The traditional linguistic research asks what the meaning of linguistic expressions is. Later approaches, however, draw attention to the question of how the meaning of natural language arises. The DGfS Summer School Mapping Meaning: Theory – Cognition – Variation focussed on the dynamics and adaptivity of linguistic meaning. Taking up these key issues of the <link http: www.sfb833.uni-tuebingen.de _blank externen link in neuem>SFB 833, the summer school provided an inspiring forum for discussing the meaning constitution of natural language from theoretically and methodologically different points of view.

The Summer School was co-organized by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Sprachwissenschaft (DGfS), the Collaborative Research Center 833 (SFB 833), the Research Training Group 1808 (GRK 1808) and the Forum Scientiarum in Tübingen.
