The Faculty of Arts at the Charles University is proud to host the 27th Sinn und Bedeutung (SuB), taking place on 14-16 September 2022 in Prague. SuB has in recent years emerged as one of the biggest venues for formal semantics and pragmatics representing the full breadth of the field, and we aim to maintain this tradition.

We invite abstract submissions for oral or poster presentations on topics pertaining to natural language semantics, pragmatics, the syntax-semantics interface, psycho- and neurolinguistics of meaning, and the philosophy of language. 

A compilation of all abstracts is ready, click here to view it.

Please check out a Proceedings page for more information about proceedings.
