Formulaic Language Research Network (FLaRN)
Fourth International FLaRN Conference
Tuesday 23 - Friday 26 March, 2010
University of Paderborn, Germany
Fourth International FLaRN Conference: Interdisciplinary Conference on Formulaic Language
Confirmed Keynote Speakers:
Professor Alison Wray, Cardiff University, U.K.
Professor Diana Van Lancker-Sidtis, New York University, U. S. A.
Professor Manfred Pienemann, University of Paderborn, Germany, and University of Newcastle, U. K.
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 (2008).
We have managed to keep the registration fees below € 100.
Early registration (reduced fees) from 10 January to 31 January 2010.
The deadline for registration is 7 March 2010.
The conference venue is the monastery ‘Haus Maria Immaculata’ in the heart of Paderborn. We have been able to pre-book a number of rooms directly at the venue and nearby.
Paderborn has its own airport (http://www.airport-paderborn.com/?__lang=en) but can also easily be reached from airports such as Hanover, Dortmund, Düsseldorf or Cologne-Bonn. For details see our conference website:
