Meeting Description: The University Seminar on Columbia School Linguistics and the Columbia School Linguistic Society
invite participation in the 12th International Columbia School Conference on the Interaction of
Linguistic Form and Meaning with Human Behavior, from February 14 - 16, 2015, at Columbia University.

The conference brings together scholars and graduate students doing work under the theoretical framework of the Columbia School of Linguistics with colleagues and students in allied linguistic disciplines that take, among others, functional, cognitive, constructional, semiotic, exemplar, and usage-based approaches. In Columbia School linguistics, grammatical hypotheses are sign-based, built around pairings of morphological or positional signals with stable meanings. Explanation stems from the arbitrary communicative factor (the sign inventory) and the functional human factor. The conference lasts two-and-a-half days and provides opportunities for presenters to offer not only the conventional 20-minute paper, but longer pieces when appropriate. The organizers see to it that each paper has ample time for in-depth questions and discussion. In addition, the schedule allows for plenty of time for supplemental informal interaction. The conference takes place on the campus of Columbia University in Manhattan, facilitating the extra-curricular enjoyment of New York's many attractions.
