Meeting Description:

Implicit/Explicit Conditions, Processes, and Knowledge in SLA & Bilingualism

Over the last several decades, neuroscientists, cognitive psychologists, and
psycholinguists have investigated the implicit/explicit dichotomy in language
development and use from theoretical as well as methodological perspectives.
GURT 2009 provides a forum to address these perspectives in an effort to build
connections among them and to draw pedagogical implications when possible.

Third International conference of the French Cognitive Linguistics Association
(AFLiCo 3) "Grammars in construction(s)"
Organized by MoDyCo (http://www.modyco.fr)

University of Paris 10, Nanterre, France
27-29 May 2009


Plenary speakers
Hans C. BOAS (University of Texas at Austin, USA)
Gilles FAUCONNIER (University of California, San Diego, USA)
Jacques FRANCOIS (University of Caen, France)
Adele GOLDBERG (Princeton University, USA)

Bernard VICTORRI (Lattice, ENS, France)
Richard WATTS (University of Bern, Switzerland)

The conference aims at bringing together cognitive linguists working in France
and abroad, and strengthening the network of discussion and collaboration set in
motion by the first two AFLiCo conferences held in Bordeaux (2005) and Lille

The concept of grammar is of crucial importance to the cognitive linguistics
framework and forms the basis for numerous research topics. As a constructed
cognitive entity (by linguists or speakers), and/or an emergent one, grammar
lies at the heart of considerable theoretical issues. The core position
currently held by grammar is thus one to be questioned.

Drawing on the themes from the last two AFLiCo conferences, we will examine the
concept of grammar in regard to its place in cognitive linguistics, as well as
in regard to its place in variants of the model, which range from Langacker's
Cognitive Grammar to so-called construction grammars. This year, the focus will
be on the latter. In the wake of Charles Fillmore and Paul Kay's work,
construction grammars endeavor to describe grammar not in terms of "words and
lists" (as in generative grammar) but in terms of grammatical constructions
whose overall meanings are not predictable from their respective component
structures. This enterprise was initially limited to idiomatic constructions
(e.g., throw in the towel, kick the bucket, etc.) but swiftly developed to deal
with more general constructions (cf. Adele Goldberg's work on meaningful
argument structure). The idea that grammar is composed of constructions -
previously identifiable in the works of George Lakoff and Ronald Langacker -
currently fuels a vast paradigm and applies to a large variety of linguistic
phenomena in morphology, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics.

General sessions
The 3rd AFLiCo conference will also provide the occasion to address more general
points of discussion in relation to the question of grammar (non-exhaustive list):
- The notion of linguistic units as linked to other concepts such as
entrenchment or frequency of occurrence
- Comparisons between different traditions (American and European) regarding the
establishment of a linguistic unit as a cognitive routine, lexicalization, the
symbolic thesis, etc.
- The acquisition of grammar (L1, L2)
- Constructions and diachrony
- The grammaticalization of constructions
- Methodological concerns (constitution and use of corpora)
- Grammars of gesture and kinesic systems
- The role of conceptual integration and grammatical blending in grammar
- The extension of cognitive linguistics into socio-pragmatics

In line with one of the main goals of AFLiCo, we welcome papers elaborating the
affinities between cognitive linguistics and related theories (Gustave
Guillaume, Antoine Culioli, Henri Adamczewski).

The organizers further encourage young researchers to submit an abstract.
It is to be noted that papers can bear on any language (not just English or French)

Thematic sessions
Organizers of theme sessions are kindly asked to provide the following information:
- a short description of their session topic (300-500 words);
- an indication of the structure proposed for the whole session: order of
presentations, discussant contributions, breaks, and general discussion by the
- the abstracts from all of their speakers, accompanied by all the information
requested in the abstract specifications above.

Proponents can choose the internal structuring of their theme session provided
that the overall timetable of the conference (notably coffee and lunch breaks)
is kept intact.
Ideally, a theme session should take no longer than a whole morning or
afternoon. For any further detail you may need in the organization of your theme
session, please do not hesitate to contact the organizers (aflico3u-paris10.fr).

Submission procedure
Abstracts will be submitted to a double, blind review. They should be fully
anonymous and not exceed 500 words (references excluded). To be sent via email

Objectifs du colloque
Cette conference a pour but de reunir les acteurs de la linguistique cognitive
en France et au dela, et de renforcer la collaboration entre chercheurs entamee
lors des deux precedentes editions a Bordeaux (2005) et Lille (2007)

Le concept de grammaire a une importance cruciale dans le cadre theorique de la
linguistique cognitive et de nombreuses problematiques se construisent à partir
de lui. Entite cognitive construite (par les linguistes, mais aussi par les
locuteurs) et / ou emergente (soumise à la variation et au changement, car
regulee par des forces tout à la fois conservatrices et innovantes) la grammaire
est au centre d'enjeux theoriques considerables. Elle occupe des lors une
position-cle qu'il faut interroger.

Dans le prolongement des deux precedents colloques de l'AFLiCo, il s'agit donc
de focaliser notre attention sur une nouvelle dimension de la linguistique
cognitive, un concept qui se decline de differentes façons, depuis la grammaire
cognitive de Langacker jusqu'aux grammaires dites de constructions.

Ces dernieres, en particulier, constituent aujourd'hui la branche la plus
dynamique de ce cadre general de par le nombre de publications et l'impact de
ces recherches sur differents niveaux de la linguistique (syntaxe, semantique,
morphologie et pragmatique).

Sessions generales
Le colloque AFLiCo 3 sera aussi l'occasion d'aborder des problematiques reliees
à la question de la grammaire (liste non-exhaustive) :
-La notion d'unite linguistique en rapport avec d'autres concepts comme
l'enracinement (entrenchment) ou la frequence d'occurrence.
-Une comparaison entre les differentes traditions (americaines et europeennes)
liees au figement, à la lexicalisation, etc.
-La question de l'apprentissage de la grammaire (L1, L2)
-Un point de vue diachronique sur les constructions et la grammaticalisation des
-La question des methodes (constitution et utilisation de corpus)
-Les prolongements de la linguistique cognitive dans la socio-pragmatique

Dans le sillage des deux precedents colloques, nous encourageons les
propositions de communication portant sur les passerelles entre la linguistique
cognitive (au sens large) et la Theorie des Operations Enonciatives de Culioli,
l'approche adamczewskienne ou la Psychomécanique du Langage.

Le comite d'organisation encourage les jeunes chercheurs a envoyer une
proposition de communication.

Il est a noter que les communications peuvent porter sur toutes les langues, pas
seulement le francais ou l'anglais.

renseignements suivants :
-un resume du theme choisi ;
-des precisions concernant la structure globale de la session : ordre des
presentations, contributions des intervenants, pauses, debats ;

renseignements demandes dans la procedure de soumission ci-dessous.

Les intervenants sont libres de choisir la structure interne de leur session
thematique des lors qu'elle n'affecte pas la structure generale du colloque
(pauses cafe, et dejeuner).
Nous recommandons que chaque session thematique ne depasse pas une matinee ou
une apres-midi. Pour tout renseignement sur l'organisation d'une session
thematique, n'hesitez pas a nous contacter (aflico3u-paris10.fr).
