This is a session of the following conference: 9th International
Cognitive Linguistics Conference

Meeting Description:

This theme session will be concerned with corpus-based approaches to
the relationship between the linguistic system and language use.


Dear colleagues,

from 17th till 22nd of July 2005, the Ninth International Cognitive
Linguistics Conference (ICLC-9) will be held at Yonsei University in
Seoul, Korea.

We are planning to organize a theme session at this conference which
will be concerned with corpus-based approaches to the relationship
between language system and language use. This includes, but is not
limited to, questions such as the following: 
- How does the system influence usage (thinking for speaking)?
- How does usage influence the system (e.g. in acquisition and
diachrony)?
- How do we derive facts about the system from usage data?

We invite abstracts from researchers in all areas of cognitive
linguistics and related frameworks who are committed to the systematic
quantitative analysis of naturally occurring language on the basis of
corpora.

Abstracts should be between 300 and 500 words, specifying research
questions, method, data and (expected) results. Abstracts should be
submitted electronically (RTF or PDF format) to Anatol Stefanowitsch
(stefanowitschuni-bremen.de) and Stefan Th. Gries
(stgriessitkom.sdu.dk), and should reach us no later than August
15th. Authors will be notified by September 15th whether their
abstracts have been selected for the theme session. The theme session
proposal will then be submitted to the organizers of the ICLC-9, who
will notify us of acceptance or rejection by January 15th.

Best regards, 
Anatol Stefanowitsch (University of Bremen)
Stefan Th. Gries (Southern Denmark University)
