Every two years the Spanish Cognitive Linguistics Association (AELCO) organizes an international conference that harbours the various domains in which its members are active. From 17 to 19 October 2012 the University of Almería (Spain) hosts its 8th edition under the theme Construals in Language, Thought and Brain: What Shapes What?
This conference aims to bring in an open floor for discussions, debates, reflection and sharing the features, topics, puzzles, methods, trends, schools and heresies within the field of Cognitive Linguistics. One of the major strands or orientations nowadays in Cognitive Linguistics refers to research in psycholinguistics and anthropological linguistics. The aim is to create an opportunity for assessing the state of the art today, the pros and the cons of the field, the added values and also the question marks that might strengthen or weaken the new profile of Cognitive Linguistics. As a distinctive field we are led to inquire not only about the relation of grammar (i.e., form-meaning pairing) to mind, but also about the physical embodiment of the linguistic competence in the brain, and to see what shapes what.
