Dialogue: State of the Art. Studies in Memory of Sorin Stati
University of Verona
This is the second volume dedicated to the memory of Sorin Stati, who passed away a few years ago, and constitutes a further homage to the great linguist by the association he founded, the International Association for Dialogue Analysis (I.A.D.A.), and his former colleagues. This collection provides an overview of the topical issues, new directions and latest findings in dialogue analysis, and shares with the reader the state of the art of the theoretical discussion and empirical research into dialogue. It will also provide inspiration for new lines of research, as dialogue analysis is still today an expanding field. The articles in the collection are the fruits of different theoretical approaches to dialogue analysis, and have implications in a range of fields of application. Some stem from traditional lines of dialogue analysis research, for example, theoretical approaches based on the speech act or argumentation theory, while others are clearly the product of new lines of research, in keeping with the desires of the founder of the I.A.D.A..
Sibilla Cantarini is Associate Professor of German Linguistics at the University of Verona, author of numerous journal articles and editor of two collections on dialogue. Her research interests include the syntax-semantics interface, comparative syntax and semantics, morphology, lexicology, lexicography, corpus linguistics, pragmatics, discourse analysis and argumentation theory.
