The purpose of the Formulaic Language Research Network (FLaRN) is to co-ordinate
research work in the field of formulaic language, to share ideas and resources,
and to create a sense of community between researchers who are not necessarily
in geographical proximity. The network is a tool for keeping a group of
like-minded people from around the world in touch with each other, and has been
the focal point for three postgraduate conferences in Cardiff 2004, Twickenham
2005 and Nottingham 2008.
The 2010 FLaRN conference will be a full conference which addresses
postgraduates and professionals alike. We invite professional and student
academic researchers working on topics associated with formulaic language such
as idioms, chunks, phrases, recurrent strings from any theoretical framework and
any area of linguistics (e.g. corpus research, L1 acquisition, L2
acquisition/learning/teaching, language disorders, etc).
