CALL FOR PAPERS: The First UK Postgraduate Conference in Cognitive Linguistics
Department of Linguistics and English Language,
University of Sussex, Brighton, UK
We are delighted to announce the first UK Postgraduate Conference in Cognitive Linguistics, to take place at the University of Sussex on Saturday, 27th May 2006.
This is the first conference in the UK aimed specifically for postgraduates working in the field of Cognitive Linguistics. Cognitive Linguistics is a relatively new, interdisciplinary approach to the study of language which focuses on the interaction between human language, cognition and experience. The purpose of the conference is to provide a forum for postgraduate researchers in Cognitive Linguistics to exchange ideas and present new research.
The conference will also feature plenary talks and workshops by the following invited speakers:
Dr Vyvyan Evans (University of Sussex): keynote lecture on ''The Cognitive Linguistics Enterprise: An Overview''
Prof. Gilles Fauconnier (University of California San Diego): a workshop on conceptual blending theory
Prof. Chris Sinha (University of Portsmouth): a keynote lecture on ''Language as a biocultural niche''
We invite submissions of abstracts for 20 minute presentations (followed by 10 minutes of discussion) on research pertaining to any area of Cognitive Linguistics.
***Extended deadline for abstracts: 3rd April***
Notification of acceptance: 24th April
- Only electronic submissions are accepted.
- The abstracts should be submitted to the email address abstractscogling.org.uk, with the email subject ''First PG Conference in Cognitive Linguistics''
- The abstract should be sent as an attachment to an email message, in either MS Word (.doc), Rich Text Format (.rtf) or Adobe Acrobat (.pdf ) format
- The length of the submissions is a maximum of 500 words or 1 A4 side. The abstract should clearly indicate the title of the talk, and may include references, but the total word count should not exceed 500 words.

FINAL CALL for abstracts
The aim of the conference is to continue the tradition of the TIE network in stimulating and coordinating cross-linguistic research on the grammatical role of tone and intonation.
The conference welcomes papers on the following topics:
* Typology of tone systems and of intonation
* The interaction between intonation and lexical tone
* The interaction between segments and tone or intonation
* Tonogenesis and other issues in the history of tonal systems
* The interaction of tone and intonation with information structure
* Experimental phonetic or psycholinguistic studies of tone and intonation
Papers will be chosen by the organizing committee on the basis of abstracts submitted. The final program is intended to represent a broad range of languages and also a broad range of approaches to this topic: phonetics, phonology, semantics, psycholinguistics, historical and comparative linguistics.
Detailed abstract submission information can be found at the conference website:
