Short Course on Relevance Theory, October 2016

We are kicking off this year’s events of the Language and Communication Research Cluster with a 4-week intensive course on Relevance Theory, an influential theory of communication and cognition, starting on Monday the 10th of October at 3pm.

Billy’s book on Relevance Theory


The course consists of four two-hour sessions over four weeks and will explore key notions of relevance theory and ways of testing and developing the theory. It will be particularly useful for early career researchers and graduate research students.

The sessions will be run by Billy Clark, Associate Professor in English Language and Linguistics, Media Department.
