Proceedings of the AMPRA-4 conference
Selected full papers presented by graduate students at AMPRA-4 will be published in a new series of Conference Proceedings titled 'New Waves in Pragmatics: Selected graduate student papers from AMPRA-4'
Further details will be available soon on this page(https://www.albany.edu/ampra/ampra-4-conference-proceedings.php).
AMPRA aims to be a forum for researchers who are looking for new tools and methods in the investigation of human language and communication, in order to thereby better understand the role of pragmatic competence in language acquisition and development as well as in the process of communication.
AMPRA achieves its goals by:
- Stimulating activities in the scientific and academic communities;
- Facilitating the coordination of scientific events (conferences, exhibitions, workshops, summer institutes, etc.);
- Encouraging the dissemination of knowledge and information (through summer institutes, regular newsletters and journals, websites, etc);
