'MANNER' in the Theory of Language
Symposium to be held in Tampere, in August 20-21, 2007

The Linguistic Association of Finland organizes the symposium '''Manner' in
theory of language'' in August 20-21, 2007. The symposium will take place at the
University of Tampere (Tampere, Finland).


The preliminary program of the symposium as well as the abstracts for the
section papers are now available on the conference website at


The program also includes the workshop ''Formal approaches to language as a
cognitive system'' organized by Urpo Nikanne (Åbo Akademi, Finland) and Mila
Vulchanova (NTNU, Norway). The detailed program will be available at the
conference website in August. Below is a short description of the workshop.

There are several cognitively oriented approaches in linguistics. Some of them
(Conceptual Semantics, Sign-theory, Construction Grammar, etc.) are based on
formalization in their theory building and treating language as a part of an
integrated theory of mind. The workshop concentrates on finding possible topics
and research areas in which these theories are ready to make a break-through in
near future.

The participants of the workshop include: Mila Vulchanova (NTNU, Norway),
Matthias Weissgerber (Konstanz, Germany), Urpo Nikanne (Åbo Akademi University,
Finland), Liliana Martinez (NTNU, Norway), Geda Paulsen (Åbo Akademi University,
Finland), Oksana Petrova (Åbo Akademi University, Finland), Michaela Pörn (Åbo
Akademi, Finland), and Esa Itkonen (University of Turku, Finland).

The deadline for registration is July 31, 2007. Please check the conference
