Meeting Description: The ICLC is the biennial conference of the International Cognitive Linguistics Association ( The local organisers of ICLC-14 are based in the Estonian affiliate organization ECLA ( There is no requirement to be an ICLA member for conference participation, but members will get a substantial reduction in conference fee as well as enjoy other benefits (more information and member signup via ICLA website).

We invite a broad range of papers on any topic taking a cognitive, functional, typological, and discourse approach to the study of language and cognition. The special theme of ICLC-14 is “Linguistic Diversity and Cognitive Linguistics”. We hope to promote the relevance of Cognitive Linguistics to a wide range of languages and to encourage papers that draw data from lesser known languages and language families. The term “linguistic diversity” is used in its broadest sense and it can refer to either diversity within one particular language or diversity of languages in general.
