Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science

Meeting Description:

Within the last 25 years or so, Cognitive Linguistics has emerged as a radical
and exciting new approach to the study of language and the mind within the
interdisciplinary project known as Cognitive Science. In that time a rich and
relatively mature set of theories has developed which have by now been applied
to a wide range of linguistic and cognitive phenomena. As Cognitive Linguistics
has grown and matured, debates have emerged regarding foundational theoretical
positions and data collection practices and methodologies. Moreover, in recent
years, both the empirical basis and the interdisciplinary character of Cognitive
Linguistics have been significantly strengthened. The purpose of this
international conference is to take stock of the major achievements associated
with Cognitive Linguistics since its emergence, and to provide a forum for
examining new directions. Papers are invited for submission which relate to any
aspect of Cognitive Linguistics, from theory to description. However, priority
will be given to papers which relate to the theme 'new direction'. The
conference will also see the inauguration of the UK Cognitive Linguistics
Association. There will also be a collection of peer-reviewed papers published
based on the conference theme.
