The main objective of ABRALIN50 is to address fundamental issues for Linguistics today, instigating debates that facilitate courses of actions in the area in face of the transformations in the contemporary world. Moreover, the event also aims to promote propositional dialogues between Linguistics and other areas of knowledge.
What we need is a broader concept of LINGUISTIC competence that includes the GRAMMATICAL competence a la Chomsky, but also all the other aspects of an individual’s COGNITIVE and SOCIAL competencies that, together with the individual’s knowledge of their grammar, controls their actual linguistic performance … An individual’s use of language is determined and controlled not only by knowledge of the grammar of their language, but also by their knowledge of the appropriate social deployment of language, their cognitive processing styles, the memory encoding of their social and linguistic experiences, etc. Relegating the non-grammatical factors to the domain of performance therefore fails to account for the fact that these factors co-determine linguistic performance.
