The Construction of Meaning Workshop provides a forum for addressing developments in the treatment of meaning in linguistic theory. It sponsors presentations of ongoing student and faculty work, lectures by invited speakers, and an annual Semantics Fest, a conference showcasing local research on semantics and pragmatics. The upcoming Semantics Fest will be the tenth, and in celebration it will be a two-day event, on Friday and Saturday, March 13 and 14, 2009.

Over the years the workshop has gained considerable momentum, with a growing number of students, faculty, and visitors participating and a diversification of interests that has often attracted audiences from other Stanford departments and several nearby institutions. Since 1999, the Construction of Meaning Workshop enjoyed support from the Stanford Humanities Center as part of its Theodore and Frances Geballe Research Workshop Program; this support is gratefully acknowledged.
