Meeting Description:

Beyond Dichotomies

The DiAGram research group in functional linguistics at Eötvös Loránd
University, Department of Hungarian (Budapest) is inviting linguists to the
international conference 'Beyond Dichotomies', due to take place in
Budapest, 25-26 October 2010.

The conference is aimed primarily at functional cognitive linguists. Its key
topic (intended as a point of orientation rather than as a limitation) is the
general trend in functionalism to relativize or eliminate strict dichotomies,
whether at an abstract theoretical level or in the minute details of
grammatical description (cf. fuzzy edges, continua, etc.). To name but the
most wide-ranging examples, functional linguists typically deny that a neat
and principled distinction can be made between
- semantics and pragmatics
- grammar and lexicon
- linguistic knowledge and language use
- synchrony and diachrony
- the individual-mental and the social dimensions of language.

These issues correspond broadly to research on cognitive grammar,
construction grammar, usage-based grammar, grammaticalization, etc., and
linguists working in these fields are strongly encouraged to participate. The
organizers also have a typological focus on agglutinative languages;
however, linguists with a different research interest are also more than
welcome. The language of the conference is English.

Confirmed keynote speakers:
Bernd Heine, University of Cologne
Paul Hopper, Carnegie Mellon University
Susanne Niemeier, University of Koblenz-Landau
