11th SUSANNE HUBNER SEMINAR 

Bridging the gap between interaction and cognition in linguistics

Zaragoza (Spain) 
March 1-3, 2001

The Department of English and German Philology at the University of
Zaragoza (Spain) is organizing the 11th Susanne H�bner Seminar, to
in March 2001. Scholars working in any field related to the Seminar's
main topic are welcome to participate.

The topic of this year's seminar will be the fit between linguistic
approaches dealing with interaction or communication and approaches
which give some prominence to the role of cognition in language. This
distinction between the external and the internal workings of language
has found a clear expression in the different objects of study in
pragmatics and in cognitive linguistics. The emphasis of the
contributions expected from the participants can be on either of the
two poles, but we are interested in seeing how the boundaries between
paradigms can be crossed. The following thematic areas are suggested:

- Translation
- Discourse analysis
- Lexis and categorization in language use
- Metaphor and metonymy
- Specialized language
- Language learning and acquisition

Participants are invited to submit abstracts for 20 minute
papers. These abstracts should not exceed 150 words and should be sent
to any of the addresses below, specifying thematic area, author,
affiliation and contact address. Electronic submissions in ASCII
format are encouraged, but we will also accept printed copies. The
deadline for submission of abstracts to be considered for acceptance
is May 20, 2000. Contributors will be notified of the Refereeing
Committee's decision by June 30, and the final version of the papers
(no longer than 15 pages) will be due on December 20. A selection of
the papers will be published in a special volume.
