The LINGUIST List is dedicated to providing information on language and language analysis, and to providing the discipline of linguistics with the infrastructure necessary to function in the digital world. LINGUIST is a free resource, run by linguistics students and faculty, and supported primarily by your donations. Please support LINGUIST List during the 2016 Fund Drive.

|Meeting Description:||In both generative and functional writings, we find lots of insightful generalizations about the relationship between language form and function, some of which are fully compatible with one another while others are seemingly not. Both approaches are hugely beneficial to all researchers who are trying to uncover the secrets of languages; and moreover, interfaces between the different modules in the Language Faculty (such as the syntax-pragmatics interface), and interfaces between the Language Faculty and the other cognitive systems in the human brain, are hot issues in current linguistic studies as well as in current multidisciplinary studies. It is therefore timely and important for scholars from all relevant areas of the language sciences to come together and present their latest research on language form and function and to learn from each other's recent insights. This is exactly the goal of the ICLFF.
