The 2010 FLaRN conference addresses researchers working on topics associated
with formulaic language such as idioms, chunks, phrases or recurrent strings. It
is open to scholars from any area of linguistics (e.g. corpus research, L1
acquisition, L2 acquisition/learning/teaching, language disorders, etc) and to
researchers from other disciplines such as literature and culture. The
conference is directed both at postgraduates and professionals.

The conference has developed out of the Formulaic Language Research Network
(FLaRN) whose purpose it 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

Format and Deadlines:
Abstracts for a 20-minute paper should be submitted by 15 December 2009.
Abstracts may be in English and German.
