Meeting Description: We are happy to announce that the 47th Poznan Linguistic Meeting (PLM2017) will take place on 18-20 September 2017 in Poznan, Poland. The Meeting will be organized by the Faculty of English of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan.


The leitmotif of the 47th PLM will be ''Language in focus: The big picture''. We would like to see examples of how one can look for holistic, bird’s-eye generalizations about language rather than low-level detail. This will mean examining the contributions of the individual subdisciplines of linguistics to the ''big picture'', including interactions between them. However, we will also welcome perspectives from neighbouring fields, in particular psychology, sociology, biology, medicine, cognitive science, and computer science.

Plenary Events:

The keynote address on complex systems will be given by William Kretzschmar (University of Georgia), the author of, among other works, ''Language and complex systems'' (CUP, 2015).

Plenary talks:

Eugeniusz Cyran (Catholic University of Lublin)
Antonella Sorace (University of Edinburgh)

Raymond Hickey (University of Duisburg and Essen) and Peter Trudgill (Fribourg University and University of East Anglia) in a dialogue on the social determinants of linguistic complexity

There will also be a debate on the leitmotif.
Linguistic Subfield: General Linguistics
