Linguistic Field(s): Cognitive Science
Call Deadline: 14-Mar-2005
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.
