List of members
The list below contains all scholars who were registered as members of the International Pragmatics Association in October 2017. At the request of colleagues objecting to the easy accessibility of e-mail addresses and home addresses on the internet, we are leaving them out of this list. An address will only be given if an institutional one is available (in the form entered into the data base by the member him/herself).
  • Anyone interested in the International Pragmatics Association becomes an active member, entitled to all membership benefits, upon payment of membership fees. Membership is always for the calendar year in which the application and payment are made. Use the membership application module of this site.
  • A significant number of non-paying members, enjoying full membership benefits, are admitted from countries with severe currency restrictions. They are sponsored with donations from other members. Membership in this category can only be applied for by writing to Ann Verhaert (ann.verhaert@uantwerpen.be). 


IPrA will launch a completely new website on Thursday 1 February 2018.
Until then membership applications and membership renewals are not possible.
Instructions for application and renewal will be communicated in time.
Keep in mind that renewals are expected before the end of February in order for you not to lose access to the latest issues of Pragmatics, and to be ready for submissions for the Hong Kong edition of the International Pragmatics Conferences.

Membership benefits
Membership includes:
  • a subscription to Pragmatics: Quarterly Publication of the International Pragmatics Association (600 pp. per year, issues due in March, June, September, December); as of 2009 members have access to the online version; paper copies can be obtained at extra expense
