Welcome to the INAR website

How people address one another says a lot about their respective social positioning of themselves and their interlocutors. Address and related micropragmatic features such as introductions and greetings are studied in such diverse academic fields as sociolinguistics and pragmatics, applied linguistics, translation studies, literary studies, psychology, anthropology, intercultural communication studies, as well as in studies of individual languages and cultures.

The International Network of Address Research (INAR) wants to foster cooperation between researchers and disciplines dealing with address and related phenomena. Lean more about INAR on our ABOUT page.
