Meeting Description: The Institute of English at the University of Silesia, Poland has the pleasure to announce the 3rd international conference:

Linguistic Snapshots: Language and Cognition 3
16-17 May 2014

The conference aims to focus on an area that has become increasingly significant for general linguistics of the last three decades: the lexico-grammar continuum.

First indicated as an unexplored area of research as early as 1987 by Ronald Langacker (1987: 34-36), it was shortly followed by an explosion of publications – both in the form of studies dealing with either the semantics of grammar or grammatical semantics, as well as whole theories: Cognitive Grammar (Langacker 1990, 1991, 2000, etc.), Construction Grammar (Goldberg 1996), or Radical Construction Grammar (Croft 2001). At the same time, it must be noted, not only Cognitive Linguistics has profited from indicating the lexico-grammar continuum. The last decades have witnessed a growing number of publications that take this area into consideration, a grand example being Huddleston and Pullum (2002).

To expand the research in this attractive field from various perspectives, the central theme for the conference this year is:
